Recently I have been on a journey to shift my mindset towards abundance, work on my belief around money, and open myself up to receive on a greater level. With a baby on the way and so much change in my emotional and physical state, I have been craving a new direction. New thoughts have surfaced about what I am doing with my life, what brings me joy, and what things spark my creativity.
I've been listening to all kinds of audiobooks, podcasts, and even attending women's entrepreneur workshops to align with this feeling of expansion that I internally feel and am ready to grow into. I have been taking time each morning to meditate and then write down any negative ideas or thoughts that surface-- this usually requires about a page or two of stream of consciousness writing, followed by writing a few positive affirmations for the day, and a gratitude list.
These morning exercises have been propelling me in new directions and opening up to the idea of "This is MY life. I can do whatever I want with it. I am free to choose."
A friend recently texted me the quote, "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you."-- Maya Angelou
It hit me hard and made me seek even more clarity.
-What am I envisioning for my life?
-What is stopping me?
-How can I align with my greatest potential?
Perhaps you've asked yourself these same questions. Maybe you are on the same journey as me at this time and are ready to grow.
Of course, meditation, gratitude, shifting your mindset, and taking action through study or networking are great ways to find your flow. However, one thing I feel has helped me energetically step into alignment and raise my vibration faster is crystal therapy.
Today, I will share with you the three crystals I use to align with an abundance mindset and how I use them in my own practice.
Step One-- Cleansing and Clearing with Black Tourmaline
When using crystal therapy, we want to have a system of stones that energetically lift us up. In order to create the space, we have to clear.
Black tourmaline is a powerful and protective stone that blocks negative energies, psychic attacks, and is great at cutting cords.
If you find yourself worrying or placing too much energy on how something will happen, I recommend using Black Tourmaline to ground you and clear you.
How to Use: Each night I set the intention to cleanse and clear negative thought forms or energy that I may have picked up during the day from my body & energy. I place the black tourmaline under my pillow and sleep with it; allowing the crystal to do the work for me and setting that intention that my higher self will do what is right for my highest good.
Step Two-- Activating Abundance with Citrine
The next step is through action. I wear citrine in a ring on my pointer finger every day. The pointer finger is the finger that aligns with the energy of Jupiter-- hello, expansive and abundant vibes!
Citrine promotes motivation, activates creativity, encourages self-expression, stabilizes our focus (goals!), and even balances the mindset. It is a great stone for activating abundance in our life by aligning our vibrations to match the crystal's.
How to Use: When I wake up in the morning, I choose a meditation that helps harness my abundant mindset. This could be something I find on youtube or you can even do this abundance meditation I recorded for you. While I do this meditation, I place the citrine in my lap or in my pocket, close to my womb space/sacral chakra. The sacral chakra is the space that helps us to manifest and create our reality.
When I am done. I may carry the stone with me all day, or wear some jewelry with it as I do on my pointer finger.
**Please note-- you do not have to do this in the morning, you can also do it in the afternoon. This is simply how I choose to do it and works for me.
Step Three-- Raising Vibrations with Elestial Quartz
The last step requires us to surrender. We've shown up, done the work, and now we must be connected to our source or vortex to receive. In order to do that we must let go. Not ask how, not wonder when, but simply be open to however this wants to show up for us.
Elestial Quartz has an extremely high vibration. This crystal is attuned to the higher spiritual realms and will help to attune you to "all that is," thus giving you more trust and ease on your journey. They also assist healing on a deep soul level (talking subconscious and unconscious thought clearing), as well as releasing anything you have karmically.
How to Use: After my night and morning using black tourmaline and citrine, the rest of the day I am in the flow just by carrying this crystal around with me. Sometimes I carry it close to my heart, either in a necklace or, yes, even in my bra. Other times I want it to help ground those spiritual energies as well as abundant ones, so I carry it in my pocket or my purse.
You can create your own routine for daily crystal therapy or change up how I've done it to resonate with your style, schedule, and energy. There is no right or wrong way to do this. It's simply about connecting even deeper to your intuition.
My hope is that using crystals in a therapeutic and mindful sense will bring you great ease, hope, joy, trust, and, of course, abundance.
