How are you feeling at the moment? Tired? Confused? Overwhelmed? Anxious? With the help of holistic health and life coach and founder of TBalance Crystals, Tori Boughey, we’re sharing how different stones can help shift your mood and energy. Sure, might not be for everyone, but if you’re curious about introducing gems into your wellness routine, here’s your starter guide to help you find the right one for your (head)space.
“Crystals can support you in your efforts to start this year as positively as possible. With their strong energetic vibrations and healing energies, incorporating crystals within your life can help dispel some of the negative emotions you might be feeling, reigniting your sense of balance, vitality, creativity, and self-love.
Here are some of my favorite crystals and activities that will help you find the balance this year and beyond.
1) Calm your anxiety with amethyst
A natural tranquilizer, amethyst is the perfect crystal to calm anxiety. To truly benefit from its soothing powers, try meditating or having a relaxing bath with amethyst nearby. There are so many ways you can relax your anxious mind—I love tuning in to a peaceful playlist, taking a walk, and decluttering my space.
2) Fight fear with labradorite
This beautiful, dark crystal is charged with positivity to dispel negative energy around you. It’s the perfect crystal to fight fear and insecurity. Fear often stems from a feeling of being out of control of a situation, so we love to wear labradorite when we are journaling or writing to help restore a sense of strength within the mind. Writing and rationalizing are great ways to process fear.
3) Create a sense of purpose with citrine
It’s hard to find a sense of purpose with everything that is going on in the world. If you’re feeling flat and demotivated, citrine is the crystal for you. It has the power to cleanse, regenerate, and boost your creativity. My favorite way to combat a sense of purposelessness is by writing lists and setting small, achievable goals to provide structure to the day. Moving your body is also an amazing way to clear stagnation—stretching, walking, or dancing will make you feel vibrant again.
4) Restore balance with aventurine
It sometimes feels like we are swaying from one extreme to the other. At one moment, we can be filled with exhaustion and pessimistic thoughts for the future; at another, we are hopeful, motivated, and positive. Aventurine is my favorite crystal to get grounded and regain some balance in my life. If you’re feeling all over the place, set yourself up with a structured morning routine. The first hour of your day sets the tone for the rest of it, so introduce one positive habit to make yourself feel more balanced.
5) Turn loneliness into self-love with rose quartz
Open your heart with rose quartz. Being alone right now is incredibly challenging. If you’re alone or feeling lonely, now is the time to invest in yourself. Is there something you’ve wanted to do but have been resisting? Therapy, coaching, and online courses are all acts of self-love. Wearing rose quartz will help you to purify and open your heart, promoting self-love and feelings of inner peace.”
