Incorporate Crystals to Achieve Yo' Dreams.
We do just happen to be approaching the beginning of a brand new year, and we all know NYE isn’t just about spray tans, bodycon dresses and cheap bubbles… right?
There’s just something about a shiny New Year, full of promise, that makes it the perfect time to dream big, reach for the stars and set shiny new goals for yourself. And while some people stick lists on their fridge to keep them motivated, or others rely on having a network of friends and co-workers to hold them accountable – there is another way.
Whether your goal is spiritual enlightenment, a new bae, or just some of them stacks on stacks on stacks, there's a crystal to help you manifest it. The only problem is where the heck to start!
The universe wants you to live your best life. By using crystals for manifestation, you can achieve results faster and create a better alignment with the universe. But there are so many different crystals and variations that it's hard to know what's best for manifesting what, so we've created this simple guide of some of the more popular crystals that you likely already own that can help you in manifesting your heart’s purest desires.
For manifesting LOVE – Rose Quartz
Looking to inject a little more romance into your bedroom and worried your partner won’t appreciate that life size portrait of Idris Elba/Emilia Clarke (whoever floats your boat) on the ceiling? Sweet Rose Quartz is your ally.
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, the way Rose Quartz facilitates love is through its ability to bring your consciousness to a higher level.
If you want to draw love into your life in any form - whether that's a new romance, existing relationship, family or self-love - the power of Rose Quartz aligns this energy to manifest it.
Try wearing your Rose Quartz on a necklace close to your heart to open up your heart chakra or keep it in the boudoir to promote harmony and romance in your relationship. Or if you’re on the quest for a new bae, place it in the relationship area of your home or room to manifest a partner!
For manifesting WEALTH & ABUNDANCE – Citrine
Citrine is a stone as bright as its energy. It emanates more positivity and joy than a box full of puppies. Known in crystal work as the “Success Stone”, it’s time to open yourself to letting this fiery stone’s golden energy lift you up.
The November birthstone’s properties of wealth and abundance are some of its most well known. If it’s dollar dollar bills you’re coveting, this is the stone to aid in the manifestation, earning Citrine its other nickname, the “Merchant’s Stone”. Citrine also promotes generosity, so the prosperity and success can be shared.
Citrine is the perfect stone to combat negative energy of any kind, by breaking it up and dissipating it. Add a piece of Citrine to the bedroom to bring light and abundance into your intimate space, or to a child’s bedroom to bring a sense of security and golden light force. Keep some in your wallet, or put some in the cash register of your business to get the money flowing or just place Citrine in your office or workspace to promote a sense of peace and confidence that could rival Kanye on his best day.
For manifesting WISDOM & SPIRTITUALITY – Amethyst
The Amethyst crystal promotes calm, balance, and expanded consciousness. It's great for strengthening intuition, which helps us to manifest our desires quickly by pointing us in the direction of our goals.
Its purifying energy is linked to cleansing the mind of negative thoughts and releasing addictive behaviours. It’s also helpful in making a clear connection between planes, making it excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. Amethyst is used to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience and clairvoyance and communication with angels.
Using this Pantone Colour of the Year (2018) hued stone to decorate the home is a choice many make for its good looks alone. Aside from the fact that an Amethyst in the family room can assist in familial bonding and in the office can bring intuition for making tough decisions and assist in stress-relief for long working days, its uplifting energy can help you thrive in your high vibe environment (and hey, it really helps tie a room together).
For manifesting EVERYTHING ELSE – Clear Quartz
Many (serious science people – not just jingly sandal wearing Byron hippies) believe that the similarity in cellular composition of Clear Quartz with the human body and earth’s crust accounts for the interactive communication between gemstones like quartz and the human body.
This is no joke – Marcel Vogel, a scientist at IBM, has studied the connection between human and emotion and the molecular structure of crystals. He believes that the crystal’s cellular formation was susceptible to change depending on what he was thinking at the time. According to Vogel, the crystal reacts to your “program” and mirrors it in its own composition.
Well it turns out that programming your Quartz is way f*cking easier than trying to program your Smart TV to record on iView. To program the Quartz with your intentions, hold it in the palm of your hand and focus on what you want to achieve. The crystal’s memory will download your intentions and help to manifest those goals through its ability to amplify in the same way it does in tech devices (or in this case, in a much easier way than it does in your supposedly Smart TV).
