There are always a number of things we can do for ourselves whenever we are frightened, shocked, saddened, or grieving. Prayer, affirmations, intention work, meditation, and working with the Stone People ( Crystals) are all effective ways to stabilize ourselves. Today, I’d like to focus on the mineral kingdom as a healing modality. Here are some of the Stones that I see as being very supportive right now.
Citrine: Natural Citrine vibrates to the Sun, and balances all 7 Chakras. It especially strengthens the Solar Plexus Chakra, our center of self-confidence, self-worth, and personal power. This Stone helps us to take our power back from people or situations that feel dangerous.
Amethyst: Amethyst vibrates to Jupiter, the planet of faith and Sacred Law. It is the premier Stone for restoring faith, and alleviating fear. It represents the Violet Ray, the frequency of Angels, Archangels, and Spirit Guides and Teachers. Meditating with Amethyst or placing it near your bed will help enormously.
Smokey Quartz: Smokey Quartz is grounding. It has a high Lithium content that makes it very soothing, also. This is an excellent ally for when we are feeling spacey or dissociated.
Garnet: Garnet strengthens the Earth Element, in Chinese medicine. This element has to do with the family of origin issues, social issues, sympathy, empathy, and boundaries, all issues people are dealing with right now. This election has triggered many hidden feelings about family, the culture, and boundaries, as well as how difficult it is to be an Empath during times like this. Garnet strengthens both the Root and Heart Chakras, bridging them both.
Obsidian: Obsidian vibrates to Pluto, and the Water Element in Chinese Medicine. It strengthens the Kidneys, the home of the Will. When we feel hopeless and overwhelmed, strengthening the will becomes a priority. Rainbow Obsidian is very powerful in supporting us in this way. Obsidian also offers psychic protection against negative energies.
Carnelian: Carnelian is used in Chinese medicine to strengthen the Lungs. The Lungs are a part of the Metal Element, which, among other things, has to do with grief, and feeling alone, not valued. Many people are feeling cast aside as an outcome of this election, especially people of color, Muslims, Latinos, and women. Carnelian restores courage while relieving the grief and feeling of rejection many are experiencing.
Rose Quartz: Rose Quartz is a soft, soothing Heart healer. I couldn’t leave it out. It reminds us that the answer to everything is Divine Love. It helps us to feel self-love, and to feel the love that the Universe has for us, so important when humanity doesn’t appear to be very loving. It helps us raise our vibration, and anchors us in the heart.
Quartz: Quartz is an amplifier. Once we get back onto our center, and feel ready to do intention work, Quartz will powerfully amplify that. It radiates light out into the world, which the world sorely needs right now.
This is a time for self-care. We need to be close to Spirit, to each other, and to Earth Mother, now more than ever. The Stones, the plant kingdom, whether that be herbs or essential oils, nature, all will support and restore us. Go for walks. Connect to the trees. Hug your dog, your cat, your family and friends. Breathe. Feel your place in the Universe. Nothing can touch that. We are eternal souls, dancing through space and time. We are made of stardust and magic. Refuse to give in to fear. Remember who you are. Stay in the moment. Most importantly, feel the love the Universe has for you. It is real. I send love and light to you all. Blessings, Judith
