Woah Baby: Crystals & Fertility
Friends and lovers, the allure of crystals is a tale as old as time and it may or may not surprise you that crystals for fertility have been sought after since time immemorial. These beautiful, natural works of art have been forged by the elements over millions of years, they’re pieces of the earth that hold the energy and wisdom of the millennia that it took to create them. And these crystals and their high vibrations are just as applicable (if not more so!) today, in our world of screen-time, commuter road rage, dating apps and fluorescent lights, than ever before.
To keep it as simple as we can – humans are beings made up of energy. Crystals hold the power of the earth’s energy. When these two come together, vibrational healing naturally follows.
HOWEVER (and this is a biggy), there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Vibrational healing occurs in a variety of ways and can be completely different for each person. If you’re having trouble conceiving, help could come in the form of anything from removing blockages in the physical body or chakras, releasing or neutralising negative emotions or increasing energy. Taking a mindful approach to accessing the magickal power of crystals can often help remove energetic blockages or interrupt a negative mindset from affecting your physical wellbeing (and baby-making practices).
These stones have been used since ancient times to help with fertility issues, because of their specific energy and healing properties.
So, what are the best crystals for fertility?
This dreamy, ethereal stone directly channels the moon, a formidable feminine force that has the power to push and pull the tides of the five deep oceans, not to mention your emotions and physical energy.
Moonstone can help calm responses and stress and avoid overreaction. It brings hope and enhances sensitivity, intuition and psychic abilities. Moonstone brings reflective and calming energy by balancing emotions, which is perfect in relieving shitty, uncalled for stressy feelings while trying to conceive. It is also said to bring strong energies of abundance to your life, especially when working in tandem with its namesake. Moonstone can help promote a regular, healthy menstrual cycle and boost female energy and is especially powerful when placed under a Full Moon to be charged with the energy of the divine feminine.
This is the most important stone to keep around if you’re trying to conceive.
Use Moonstone in concert with the New Moon to set intentions and resolutions. Or (let’s not forget the fun part of this whole endeavour), under a Full Moon, bring Moonstone into the bedroom with your partner (or partners – no judgement here!) to ignite a transcendent, next level experience.
Whenever you're called on to perform, whether it's on stage or between the sheets, be the star of your own show by accessing the healing properties of Carnelian, the fiery companion guiding you in facing your fears.
Carnelian is the perfect antidote to a bad case of the “can’ts”, like all agates, it has protective energies, and is a powerful wingman when negativity and self-disbelief strike. Its energy will help balance the sacral chakra and remove blockages in the reproductive organs and its confidence enhancing superpowers will let you believe that you have the strength to hold, birth and nurture a new life. You go girl.
Rose Quartz has been used in love rituals and ceremonies for centuries and remains the stone of the hopeless romantic (for good reason – crystals with aphrodisiac properties are great for igniting passion between lovers), but it’s not just romantic love that this crystal embodies. The Rose Quartz stone’s meaning is one of unconditional love in any form. Whether that be self-love, family, platonic or romantic love, Rose Quartz encourages mothers to find faith in themselves as their bodies and lives undergo the many changes of motherhood. The loving energy Rose Quartz provides also helps in fostering a deeper connection between a mother and her unborn child, creating a stronger bond from the moment of conception.
Helping you to forgive and understand, Rose Quartz is strongly associated with the element of water, its healing properties are naturally fluid. They wash out those toxic energies and emotions that threaten to weigh you down.
The ultimate stone for carpe-ing the f*cking diem, the magic of the Unakite crystal lies in its ability to inspire a sense of urgency as you come to the realisation of how important it is to live in the now, and how quickly time slips through your fingers. Doulas often use Unakite to support women during delivery because it brings such a deep centering and nurturing energy.
Bringing together the abundant, nurturing energy of lush green, with the soft, caring passion of pink, Unakite is said, in Crystal Healing lore, to benefit the heart, circulatory system, and reproductive system, helping to ease pregnancy.
Keeping your body healthy is one thing, but it can be a whole ‘nother story when it comes to your spiritual health. Whether we realise it or not, a lifetime of emotional pain builds up in the heart in the same way that a lifetime of eating shitty junk food clogs the arteries. Bringing unconditional love and connection, the radiant energy of Unakite can help you do the work required to turn that frown upside down. Resonating with the frequency of love, compassion, and kindness, Unakite helps with healing abandonment and separation issues and is a stone dedicated to balancing the emotional body and embracing the new and unknown.
