This past winter was a typical Saturnian winter. Bitterly cold, blistering winds, snow storm after snow storm, ice encrusted roads and trees, gray and gloom, so quiet you could hear a pin drop. Saturn moved into the sign of Capricorn December 2017 which is a winter sign. Saturn rules over our weather, so this was the recipe for an unbearable winter season. I am Canadian so our winters are usually long and cold, but this year was particularly harsh. Be prepared folks, we have another solid 2 years of this hell!
I sit here writing this blog during the second week of April, when birds should be chirping, the sun should be warm, and crocuses and tulips should be poking their little sleepy heads through the ground. Ummmm, no. It’s cold. Winter coat cold, which is very unusual for this time of year…thanks Saturn. Gray skies and cold weather are fine for a few months, but after a while it really starts to become depressing. With that being said, I thought I would share 3 of my favourite uplifting crystals.
They are ranked #3-1, #1 being the most powerful…
#3- Lemon Quartz
Lemon Quartz is an irridated quartz (a high vibe colour enhancing process) that has been treated to bring out its yellow greenish hue. This crystal helps to remind you of all the good things in life which counteracts negativity. I find this crystal is great to work with if friends, family, or coworkers are draining your energies. Everytime I’ve worn this crystal, I feel perky and upbeat. It helps you to persevere even when you are feeling low.
I know. The name is a dead give-away, but it’s true! Sunstone is THE happiness stone! It makes you feel alive and enthusiastic! It keeps you focused on the present moment without worrying about how long your happiness will last. Like the sun, it will increase your visibility, attracting new people and opportunities your way. I have a worry stone made of Sunstone, and whenever I feel low, I rub my fingers along it and I feel a burst of energy and excitement. It’s especially useful in the winter when you are feeling cold, as it will warm you up.
Spinel might not be the most obvious choice for a crystal to life your spirits, but I believe it is the most powerful happiness crystal. Spinel comes from the latin word ‘spina’ meaning spine, as Spinel has sharp needle like formations. It is a high vibe crystal that is used to substitute rubies and sapphires. Spinel repels negativity and grounds the user. It is said to alchemize all negative and emotional issues into positive emotions, empowering the user. It is known as a matrix crystal because of its strong regenerative properties. It will give you inspiration and optimism more than any other crystal. I recently purchased a spinel necklace, and I have never felt more happy in my life. I feel excited for the future and ecstatic in the present. I worry less and have more passion for life. I cannot recommend Spinel enough, which is why it’s my #1 crystal for uplifting your spirits!
There are many more crystals out there that will uplift you, but these are 3 that I have worked with that have had a great impact on my life. Typically the yellow and orange crystals are known as the happiness boosters as they activate your solar plexus chakra, which is known as the seat of happiness. Try exploring yellow and orange crystals if you cannot get your hands on the ones I’ve mentioend.
Some other good alternatives are:
Amber (not a crystal)
Yellow or Orange Calcite
