Have issues with worthiness? Self-Worth? Self-esteem? Self love?

Well, I’ve got some crystals for you today!

Yes, I’ve got some crystals to help boost your feelings of worthiness, or boost your self-esteem, your self-worth. 

You know, a lot of us have issues with this.

Because…maybe we’ve been bullied.  Perhaps, there are people in our lives that talk negatively to us or criticize us for every little thing we do. 🙁

After a while you start to believe that stuffs.

Keep in mind, they’re being this way b/c you’re not just like them, because of their own feelings of low self-esteem & low self-worth.

These people make themselves feel better by coming at you, belittling you, talking down to you & making you feel that way.  That may be exactly where your feelings of low self-esteem, low self-worth come from.

Of course, there may be more extreme things that people have done to you or circumstances behind it: abusive relationships, both physical & emotional that do that to you as well. ((HUGS))
Crystals for Self Esteem & Worthiness
Let’s get back to feeling worthy & the crystals you can use to help reinforce those feelings.

Of course, in addition to your sparkly tools, you want to be working on yourself in lots of different ways:

  • self-care
  • therapy (group or one on one or both!)
  • journaling
  • surrounding yourself with supportive people
  • self-help books, etc.

You know I don’t ever rely just on crystals alone, but I definitely like them as a healing tool & support to help us along with other healing modalities that we’re using to achieve the goal of whatever we’re trying to achieve.  In this case, it’s self-worthiness & self-esteem.

White Precious Opal

This stone looks like Common Opal, BUT it has an iridescence & some flashes of blue, green + red in there!

White Precious Opal or any kind of Opal is great for boosting self-esteem. ♥ It’s also known for purifying & removing blocks.

Cinnabar
Cinnabar is a powerful stone, great for boosting self-esteem!

I have a blog post and video all about Cinnabar that I will link to here. A lot of red stones are good for boosting self-esteem, but Cinnabar is especially known for that.

 

WARNING: Cinnabar is a stone is you want to be careful with because it’s a toxic stone. It has Mercury in it.  But I’m not afraid of handling it.  It’s not so crazy-toxic that I can’t touch it.  I just wouldn’t put this in my mouth or make a Gem Elixir with it or anything like that. And I’m always mindful of washing my hands after I do handle it. Maybe I’m a little too cautious, but it can’t hurt, right?

Always err on the side of caution with any kind of crystal that may have elements in it that could be toxic, like Cinnabar.

Here’s an affirmation that I really like for worthiness in general b/c…you know…you need to know internally that all of us, every single one of us, are worthy and that we deserve to receive good in all forms.  All forms, we all deserve it:

We deserve to receive good in all forms.

Spirit Quartz
It has a slight Lilac-tone to it, or hue.  Some are more vibrant than others.  Look how purty-sparkly it is!

Spirit Quartz is a great 1, again, for boosting self-worth, feelings of worthiness.  It’s also known for purification & protection; freedom from fear. Get yourself some Spirit Quartz if you need to boost that up.  And a cluster would be really good for sending out energy in all different directions, if you’d like to radiate that energy into your sacred space or office perhaps: send out that energy in all different directions!

We all need a self-worth boost sometimes, right? Please tell me & our Crystal Hottie Community if you use these crystals & how you work with them in the comments below.

Crystal Blessings,

 

 

COLOR OF THE YEAR: MARSALA ~ 2015 ~ Rubellite, Ruby + Cinnabar

Hibiscus Moon chakras, Crystals, Videos 10 Comments

Hola Crystal Hottie!
Today we are going to talk about Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, which happens to be Marsala. Over the past few years, I’ve done a video with this theme, finding a crystal that embodies that specific light frequency.

  • 2014- Radiant Orchid
  • 2013- Emerald

Pantone describes Marsala as a “naturally robust & earthy wine red.”

Since making this video, I’ve discovered that yes, Marsala is indeed a wine produced in the region surrounding the Italian city of Marsala in Sicily.

Man! Marsala was a tough color.

Yeah, it was hard to find a crystal that was that exact color that Marsala is because a Pantone Color is very specific. I swear, while I was sitting down to make up this video, I could not think of any others! Was drawing a total blank.

Rubellite
Rubellite is actually a ruby-red color of tourmaline; hence its name! Tourmaline comes in almost every color of the rainbow.

The specimen I show in the video is actually a rubellite in clear quartz matrix & it’s a lighter color of the rubellite. It’s actually bordering on pink tourmaline. The one in the photo below is a better representation for “Marsala”.

  • Rubellite is known for its ability to heal the heart physically & emotionally, while also connecting you with the Universal Heart that connects us all. It’s a great crystal for balancing both the heart & root chakra
  • It’s a beryllium aluminum silicate, as all tourmalines are & has a Mohs hardness of 7-8, so relatively hard

Ruby
Ruby actually comes closer to the Marsala color then my specific specimen of Rubellite that I showed in the video.

  • a stone of passion & strength, it also helps boost our life force energy & aligns with our root chakra
  • Ruby is an aluminum oxide & is a variety of corundum. It’s quite tough with a Mohs hardness of 9 (10 being the hardest)

Cinnabar
Here’s a precious cinnabar specimen I took a photo of on dolomite & quartz that was on display at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show….price tag was $25,000 smackers! Gorgeous but muchos expensive.

  • a whimsical stone of magic, insight & deep transformation that aligns with our root & third eye chakra
  • a mercury sulfide mineral, this makes it a toxic stone so be sort careful handling it & definitely no ingesting gem elixirs created with it. It’s relatively “soft” with a Mohs hardness of only 2-2.5

Those are my picks for the Color of the Year & Stone Combo. I would love it if you have other crystals in mind that would go along with Marsala, (really coulda used your help pre-video on this one)…please tell us about it in the comments below!

Crystal Blessings!
