My favorite crystals
Today I’m excited to share four of my absolute all-time favorite crystals with you. As you can imagine, I have a lot of them around my house, but these are ones that stole my heart!
I will list them alphabetically as it’s really impossible to list by favorite! (Most of the descriptive parts come from “The Pocket Book of Stones” by Robert Simmons.)
I keep one on my desk, my night stand, and I even sometimes keep one in my palm while I sleep at night to help connect with the divine while I sleep and/or release stress. Thankfully neither my husband or I have rolled onto it while sleeping as they have sharp edges LOL.
Apophyllite is known to:
- Help aid depression, anxiety and stress related issues
- Facilitate rediscovering trust in the divine and connecting with guides and angels
- Provide an atmosphere of purity and spiritual presence in home, mediation and work space
I call this one my angel cave. The first night I had it, I placed it on my nightstand. My daughter was about 9 months, and I hadn’t slept more than 2-3 hours at a time since my second trimester. I was exhausted. That night I heard Shealyn crying, and without even opening my eyes I began to roll out of bed to go check on her. I heard a calm male voice, my husband, tell me, go back to sleep, I’ll go be with her. I rolled back into a comfy spot, and heard her stop crying within about 30 seconds, which I knew meant he was with her. I fell asleep grateful that he took that shift. When I woke up in the morning and thanked him, he said he didn’t know what I was talking about. He slept through the night and didn’t go into her room. I knew immediately that the voice I heard was my father-in-law, who is her guardian angel. I have no doubt that the celestite facilitated that communication.
Celestite is known for:
- Being the most effective stone for accessing the angelic realm and facilitating communication between self and one’s guardian angel
- It’s an environmental cleanser and source of soft, positive energies, with its vibration radiating in all directions
When I met with my crystal dealer (LOL but true story), and saw the various stones he had laid out for me, my eyes and energy were immediately drawn to the pale pink danburite. I put one in each hand when I meditate and channel – one tip is heart shaped, the other shaped like a superman shield, which I believe helps balance my masculine/feminine energies. Of all my stones, I work with this one the most (multiple times a day). I am so enamored with it that I am giving one away to each person who enrolls in my upcoming program, the Magnetize Collective.
Danburite is known for:
- Channeling, angelic communication, peace and freedom from stress
- It supports recovery from stress-related illnesses (hello, Hashimoto’s!) and helps aid with sleep
When I made eye contact with this beauty, it was love at first sight. I left the store, doing my best to resist purchasing it, but the lump in my throat didn’t leave until it was in my hands. It is absolutely gorgeous to look at, with gold threads running through it. I bought it at a time when my mind and body were still coming back to earth after having my daughter … I felt scattered and overwhelmed. The sign at the store said it “activates the higher mind; helps maintain mental focus + clarity; infuses one’s energy field with light energy; brings a joyful vibration and helps one to feel less overwhelmed.” All of which I needed/wanted.
In addition to that, Rutilated Quartz is known to:
- Amplify one’s power of manifestation
- Magnify the energy of any intention or affirmation
It’s recommended to visualize the energy of your intention running along the rutile threads and broadcasting the energy into the universe as an antenna broadcasts radio waves. I love it.
Let me know if you have any crystal questions, or if you have a favorite that you think I need to know about! 🙂
