Crystals for Travel
With 2022 more than half gone and the spectre of lockdowns, travel bans and border closures (hopefully) behind us, we’re sure as hell not the only ones getting wanderlusty.
Whether it's just taking a cheap road trip to play tourist in a nearby city or flying your thrill-seeking self to the other side of the globe for the trip of a lifetime, the urge to hit the open road, water or skies is stronger than ever after missing out on two years of potential adventures.
And while travelling can totally make life worth living, it can also be hella stressful, especially these days, but thankfully, that’s nothing a lil crystal healing can’t help with.
Best Crystals for Travel
Amethyst for a Peaceful Journey
Amethyst has traditionally been used for protecting travellers against thieves. But it has other attributes that make it the perfect crystal to take on your next journey.
The February birthstone’s purifying energy is linked to cleansing the mind of negative thoughts, aid in creative thinking and protect against nightmares. Carry a piece with you in your pocket or bag to keep you calm and relaxed and to promote a peaceful journey.
Lepidolite for Patience
Between flight delays, endless queues, traffic jams and booking mix-ups, patience is a virtue required of all travellers, but not everyone has an easy time letting go of control and going with the flow. Lepidolite is a stone of transformation. It helps us get through transitions with trust that everything will ultimately turn out for the best and it engenders and enhances self-love, patience, and optimism.
Keep Calm and get yourself a Lepidolite crystal.
Black Tourmaline for Spiritual Travel Insurance
What was it our Year 7 Sex-Ed Teacher always told us? Oh that’s right, “Always use protection”. A solid, universal piece of advice that you can turn to in pretty much any given situation (except perhaps the US gun debate, but that’s another story…)
And even aside from its energetic shielding, Black Tourmaline can promote a more positive and laid-back approach when travelling. If you need a bear hug of reassurance, Black Tourmaline has your back.
Tiger’s Eye for Expanding Your Horizons
A Tiger’s Eye crystal can give you the strength to stop dreaming and the courage to start living. With the Tiger's Eye crystal as a (literal) touchstone, it’s time to harness the strength of a Bengal tiger and take on the world with a mighty roar.
Combining the earth and sun energy, this gemstone can keep you grounded whilst promoting enthusiasm for exploring new places.
Labradorite as Your Soul Map
The biggest hurdle to your spiritual growth is probably your own hypercritical tendencies. Labradorite is the stone of destiny. Carry a Labradorite stone in your pocket or backpack and you will find that suddenly “coincidences” begin to happen, and the universe opens up to you, as if a magical energy surrounds your trip.
Labradorite’s rainbow hues awaken the intuitive inside you, helping you attract the right people along your journey and build harmonious relationships with them.
