For thousands of years, crystals have been used as a source of healing, as amulets for protection, and as a tool to help connect to the vibrations of The Universe.
These minerals have been growing within the Earth, formed over millions of years, shaped by volcanic heat and waters, and charged with natural elemental powers.
In many cultures it is believed these natural wonders each contain a specific healing, personal empowerment or protection vibration that when tapped can have a profound effect on our physical and mental wellbeing; the crystal’s energy balancing and realigning atoms within our own bodily makeup.
It is said that whatever you need - whether you’re aware of the need or not - the right crystal guide will have a way of finding you.
Take 30 to 60 seconds to look over the six images of crystals. Then close your eyes and relax. One image will stand out for you, emerge in your mind’s eye. This is the one that has a special meaning for you, a message from your crystal guides. Read and take note of what they have to say.
Rose Quartz (Top row left)
If Rose Quartz has drawn you to its vibration today you are being reminded to be as kind to yourself as you are to others. Forgive yourself for past mistakes and let go of old hang-ups and feelings of anger, jealousy and resentment. Accept and love who you are and remember if others cannot embrace this it’s their own inadequacies, not yours. This crystal wants to empower you, to help you find your mojo. It magnifies creativity and imagination so if you’re wanting to write that book, start that new business venture, or even create that new life this vibration is saying this is a great time to do so. Step into this period of harmony and watch the magic happen.
Blue Lace Agate (Top row middle)
What are you not saying to someone that they need to hear? This is the question being asked of you by Blue Lace Agate. Your intuition, gut instinct, is telling you what you need to do and what you need to say, but something is stopping you. Is it a fear of being judged? Maybe, you’re frightened that you might upset someone dear? The gentle vibration of Blue Lace Agate urges you to express the feelings that are in your heart honestly. No matter how hard the situation may seem, this vibration is saying if you speak the truth with kindness, you will receive a favourable outcome. Peace can only come when you allow yourself to freely express what is within.
Carnelian (Top row right)
This is not a time to back down or to settle for second best. If Carnelian has spoken to you, drawn you to its vibration, life is about to get very interesting indeed. This bad boy means business. He’ll shake you up and kick in to touch any feelings of apathy or insecurities that may have recently crept into your world. He’s like your very own Mr Motivator, arming you with courage, drive, ambition, heaps of vitality, and a “get real and focused” attitude to push you to achieve not just what you need but what you want. With this highly-charged vibration driving you forward towards new opportunities that Porsche Spyder 218 you’ve been secretly Googling might just turn from a dream into a reality.
Amethyst (Bottom row left)
Are you partying a little too hard? Spending more with the turf accountant? Has the one glass of wine after work turned into a bottle? Another Krispy Kreme won’t hurt, will it? There is something that you are doing to excess that has drawn you to Amethyst’s soothing vibration. In Ancient Greek Amethystos means not to be intoxicated and Amethyst is in your world right now to help guide you away from any form of addiction or extreme behaviour. This purple crystal is here to remind you that you do not need to reward yourself with excesses of any kind to feel good. Embrace this beautiful vibration and you’ll start to find more physical, mental and emotional balance – and a newfound confidence to say “no”.
Tiger’s Eye (Bottom row middle)
If you have been challenged to look into Tiger’s Eye then you are being warned there is somebody in your orbit that is causing problems behind your back. To your face this person is your friend but Tiger’s Eye vibration is calling them out as false and untrue. They are not to be trusted and they mean to bring you down. Don’t worry though to be forewarned is to be forearmed. Tiger’s Eye is offering you protection from malice or unseen threats. To know whether a person is the real deal and is reliable Tiger’s Eye is asking you to tap into his protective vibration and trust your feelings. It will soon become clear just who or what is the unknown enemy.
Sunstone (Bottom row right)
You are being given permission to enjoy yourself, to do something for pleasure not business if Sunstone has caught your eye. This sparkling vibration is encouraging you to live in the present, to seize the day and to remind you that this life is no dress rehearsal. When is the last time you actually did something for yourself without feeling guilty? Sunstone wants to see you having a little more fun, add a dash more pizazz to your life. Book a random day off work and take yourself off to a spa or play a round of golf. Read that book you’ve been meaning to for the past six months, or visit that Tate Modern exhibition. You’ve always wanted to travel on the Orient Express so, Sunstone is saying, go on and treat yourself.
