Won’t you join me in a Crystal Meditation for Peace? 

In these current times of conflict & apparent separation…here it is…just for you.

Watch the video so you can see the special little setup I did for you & the crystals I’m working with for our meditation for peace.

You can bookmark this and come back to it & use it whenever you’re feeling the chaos of the world is starting to pull you into Overwhelm City, whenever you need to find peace.

Alternatively you can download the audio version by clicking on this link >>>

If you don’t have the specific crystals that I’m working with, not to worry because that’s the whole point…I’m going to work with the crystals and do a little something to share the energy out to you. ♥

But if you do want to do the same meditation with crystals you have at home, you can use:

  • Lepidolite
  • Gem Silica 
  • Amazonite

I know Gem Silica’s a really hard one to find. In fact, if you can only find 1 of these crystals, that’s fine. If you can’t find any of them, no worries, I have them for you. 🙂

If you have some lavender essential oil go ahead and grab that, but it’s not necessary…just an added serenity component to get in the zone for meditation.
Crystals for the Meditation for Peace
Lepidolite
Lepidolite is a wonderful choice for peacefully calming energy.

Amazonite
Amazonite is known as “the peacemaker“.  Don’t we need that right now?   The peacemaker. Plus it has a beautiful hexagonal crystal structure…working the Sacred Geometry.  Just gorgeous!

Gem Silica
Gem Silica is another peacemaker.

The gem silica that I have is really chrysocolla encrusted with clear quartz. Total sparkly-ness.  I think it’s one of the most beautiful crystals in the world.

And I’m also going to burn some lavender essential oil in an aromatherapy diffuser. Any organic brand is fine.
Let’s Meditate
Take some deep breaths and just get into the relaxed state, alpha brain waves state.

In our meditation I use a copper tetrahedron structure to amplify the energies of the crystals.  (In the video you’ll see the one I had made for doing crystal work, for meditation and sacred geometry work.)

And then send peace, this energy that we’re going to work on together here, out into the world.

So we’re going to get quiet and focus on your breath.

Focus on the peaceful feeling in your heart, and focus on the energy of the crystals.
Focus on your breath, focus on the peace in your heart and focus on the crystals.
Inhale deeply, taking the deepest breath you’ve taken so far today and exhale all the air, sending peace out, radiating it around the planet.

Let the energy of lepidolite, gem silica and the amazonite envelope us.  It envelopes us in this bubble of peace that’s around the whole entire planet.

A peaceful energy.

Feel this energy in every cell in your body.
Amazonite and gem silica are working together as peacemakers with our energy, with our vibrations.  Lepidolite adds its calming and balancing effect.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Sending out gratefulness for the ability to release this peace and to work together with the vibrations.

So much love and light and peaceful energy radiating out from your being.  Connecting with all of us.

All are one.

We’re all connected.

We’re connected here together, we’re from all over the planet. And our vibrational waves are meeting up with each other in the ether.

Isn’t that a peaceful feeling?

I’m so grateful to all of you for joining in this meditation, for being here joining me and all of us.

Now, visualize beaming love and peace from your heart center. Beam it out!

Thank you love beings, that wraps up the meditation.  We’re going to end it there.

How was that? Nice, huh.

We can really beam this energy around because you know we need it right now, this is all we need to do. We need to send out love and peace.

Stop with the negativity. We’re not focusing on that. We’re focusing on positivity, love, peace from heart center, from us to everyone.

So many blessings of peace going out to you & everyone.  We are the peacemakers, right?

We are the peacemakers.

Thank you for joining me in sending out peace, love and positivity!  I hope you enjoyed this crystal meditation for peace.

During this meditation, were you able to tap into that peace and love and send it out from your heart?  Send it out to the world?  Please share your experience with me in the comments below.

Crystal Blessings to you Peacemakers,

What are the best Crystals for Busting Bad Habits?

Hibiscus Moon amethyst, Crystals, healing, health 11 Comments

Bad habits.

We all have them.

They say it takes an average of 66 days to break a bad habit.

And 21 days to create a new one.

Hey! That totally works in our favor: It only takes less than a 1/3 of the time to create a new good habit than it does to break a bad one. 🙂

Annnnd, you’ll probably be happy to know that we can use crystals to help us along with that task.
So let’s get to talking about crystal suggestions for breaking our bad habits:

A lot of times people will say something like:

  • I need to quit smoking 
  • I need to stop biting my nails 
  • I need to get into a habit of not eating junk food, or stop being lazy and “couch-potatoing” when I get home from work and get to the gym

Whatever it is that you consider to be a bad habit that you want to break out of, any bad habit you can think of…I’ve probably heard it before & have partaken in a few myself.

Of course, I’ve had my own bad habits that I’ve had to kind of bust out of.  Not exercising, eating poorly, gossiping. I used to drink Coke all of the time.  Then it was Diet Coke all the time.  Yes, I have used crystals to help me quit. 

As always, I’m not saying that crystals are the only thing you should do.  There are lots of ways, methods and all kind of things you can use to help you quit, break the bad habit & train yourself out of that habit & I feel you should use all that you have at your disposal, not just rely on the crystals alone, however, crystals can be a really powerful healthy ally, tool & support in helping you to break out of these bad habits.

Having said that, here in this blog post, I’m going to only focus on the crystals.

Crystals for Bad Habits
Amethyst:

It’s, like, the most well-known crystal for helping us to break out of bad habits.

Since ancient times, Romans used to create goblets made of Amethyst because it was well-known as an anti-drunkenness stone.  They would make the goblets of Amethyst so that the rulers & leaders could just drink and drink and drink; get everybody else stinkin’ drunk & incapacitated, but they wouldn’t be drunk themselves, thereby able to take total advantage of situations!

I haven’t tested this method out myself. 😉

Then this anit-drunkiness reputation kind of morphed into a stone that would make you not want to drink.  Of course, we know that alcohol can be addictive.

More addictive for some than others.

I am told (have heard this from others so please correct me if I’m wrong) that in A.A. Meetings, they suggest carrying a little Amethyst with you to help on the path to sobriety.

Even if it is just for a visual reminder; like a tangible object to remind you of the path that you are on…Hey, if that’s all it is for some people, then fine!

I know & you probably know it too; Amethyst indeed has those kind of “will-power-boosting” properties, so that you don’t want to do those things you’re trying to break free of: whether it be soda, cigarettes, drugs, alcohol…whatever it is that is bad for you, that we consider a bad habit.

We all have bad habits of 1 kind or another we’d like to release. Right? It’s part of our human experience.  
Amazonite:
Another stone that’s really great to help you kind of look for the root cause of what’s holding you back, or what’s making you rely on these bad habits is Amazonite.

It’s a good reminder of your goals, and what you’re moving towards…breaking those bad habits

Chrysocolla:
Chrysocolla is gorgeous & sometimes looks like the planet Earth. Doesn’t it?

Just beautiful.

This stone allows us to express our sacred selves while experiencing our power…yet with gentleness. It assists us with releasing fear-based actions & patterns; such as bad habits.

Staurolite:
Staurolite (aka Fairy Cross) is actually great for helping us get rid of things…including bad habits!  Sometimes you’ll find little sparkly red Garnets in there with the staurolite. Luscious!

Black Onyx
The Black Onyx is also wonderful for boosting will-power.  That’s what you need; lots of will-power when you’re trying to break your bad habits, until the new GOOD habit becomes…well…a habit!

It also boosts inner strength.

How to tell the difference? Obsidian is usually shinier. Onyx is a bit more dull & may have white, gray or black spots or bands (see above).
