Birthstone for February - Amethyst

People have been calling me the Crystal Chick for years. I love crystals and their ability to subtly but profoundly change our energy, health and aura. We use crystals in computers and clocks but they can be very helpful in our personal lives. There are six main areas in which crystals can change your life for the better.

Crystals are healing and can work to restore our cells and organs to their optimum functioning levels. Red stones such as Jasper and Bloodstone can help with blood disorders. Orange and yellow stones such as Citrine, Amber and Carnelian can help with stomach issues. Green crystals such as Green Aventurine and Peridot are always healing and will work to help your cells grow in health. Light Blue stones like Blue Lace Agate and Blue Chalcedony heal throat issues. Headaches are helped by Amethyst. Unikite helps woman trying to get pregnant. Blue Chalcedony helps new moms. All of these stones will link in and align with your energy especially when worn continually.

Crystals can help increase your abundance. If you need to attract money to you, carry Green Aventurine and Citrine with you. Placing a Pyrite in your wallet assures it has money in it. If you have a hard time holding on to money, wearing Citrine will help you be more frugal. If you own your own business, you should keep a Citrine in your cash register because it assures more money coming in than leaving. Green Aventurine should be worn or carried for good luck. A gem tree helps remind you that good luck and fortune are within your reach.

There are many crystals that can increase your romantic life. In general, any pink stone will enhance your romantic energy. If you’re single, place two Rose quartz crystals by your bedside to assure that love will find you. If you’re in a relationship, place an Amethyst cluster next to a Citrine cluster. Cluster shaped crystals assure that we all get along. The Citrine increases our confidence in the relationship, and the Amethyst makes us feel more agreeable and loving toward each other. Wearing Watermelon Tourmaline helps you feel worthy of a great relationship. Pink Calcite calms emotions in a heated relationship. Rose Quartz or Garnet placed under the bed can help increase the romance and passion.

If you’re feeling stuck in your career, place a large piece of Garnet on your desk to reignite your passion for your work. Cluster crystals help groups to get along. Clear Quartz crystal clusters help to energize a team. If you’re working toward a project and getting blocked at each turn, buy a Bloodstone paperweight for your desk. Bloodstone is known to remove obstacles that stand in the way of our success. Serpentine can help you deal with changes such as a layoff, new job or promotion. A Jade plant covered with green stones (for money) and red stones (for hard work and passion) will help draw more money, clients and positive work to you and your company.

Many times an inability to forgive ourselves or others can impede our process in life. Crystals can help to break down barriers to forgiveness such as anger, resentment and sadness. Rhodonite with its lovely pink and black marbling helps us to embrace the sad or angry situation and release it with love. Rhodocrosite with its bands of pink and white ribbons helps awaken our heart to surrender and letting go. Smithsonite helps to heal a painful childhood. Malachite helps us release trauma. Try working with these crystals by holding them in meditation. Imagine the person you’re trying to forgive. Picture handing them the crystal as a symbol of forgiveness and see it turning into a bird and flying away.

Crystals work tirelessly to remove blockages of self-doubt and fear so we can embrace our intuitive self. The best crystals to wear or carry to increase your intuition include Labradorite, Moonstone, Apopyhyllite. Moonstone helps you to accept your psychic abilities. Apatite, Azzurite, and Shattuckite help you develop your intuition. Unikite will help keep you grounded while you’re opening to your intuition. We are all intuitive. Each of us possesses a still, small voice that acts as our internal compass. Wearing, meditating with or carrying crystals helps us get in touch with this essential part of who we are.
