I think I’ve always collected rocks.
Shiny, colourful, fun shaped little stones that I swear have magical properties! This obsession was probably the beginning of my insane (ask my kids) collection of crystals – I love to grab a crystal for nearly everything.
So I thought I’d breakdown my top must haves crystals for anything that may just come up.
This gorgeous crystal helps mental breakdowns and 21st century stress.
I mean come one… who especially right now, isn’t dealing with that mess of emotions?
Rhodochrosite stimulates love and passion while energizing the soul. It opens our heart, lifting depression and encouraging a positive and cheerful outlook. It’s also known to improve self worth and soothe emotional stress.
2. Picasso marble
This beauty helps subconscious / unsettled thoughts, stress & anxiety. I’m 100% sure this is going to be a must have when the world once again opens up (at least for introverts like me)
This stone has strong, calming, grounding energies, and can boost your creativity, personal strength, and sense of self-discipline.
She protects, calms & soothes emotions, aids relaxation & prevents energy vampires.
This is a huge helper every time I leave the house! Having dealt with anxiety while also having a sensitivity to others energy, I need this in my pocket at all times. It’s believed to benefit the nervous system, balancing blood pressure, stimulating the metabolism while also easing migraines.
4. Green moss agate
This must have stone helps with stress, anxiety & tension (do you see a pattern emerging?) It can encourage a sense of tranquility and emotional balance. It’s said to also be helpful to those experiencing overwhelm. Green moss agate is thought to have anti-inflammatory properties which support and cleanses the circulatory and elimination systems, while boosting the immune system.
5. Rose Quartz
And of course, last but not least, the gemstone I have the very most of… rose quartz! This little lady is pure love. She has powers that can purify and open the heart on all levels to promote self-love, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. Calming and reassuring, it will help comfort youin times of grief. Rose quartz can even help dispel negativity replacing it with loving vibes.
As an extra note, now that you have a good start on your newest obsession what should you do with them?
1. keep them everywhere – pockets, bedside, wallet, car, desk, front entrance, near electronics, near plants, windows, etc etc etc
2. clean them, wipe them down with a slightly damp cloth when dusty and recharge their energy by laying them out in the full or new moon every once in a while.
3. always look out for new ones at stores to add to your collection 😉
