"Sometimes your light attracts moths and your warmth attracts parasites. Protect your space and energy." - Warsan Shire
We can't stress the importance of self-care. There's nothing more rewarding than initiating actions and forming habits that lead to a healthy mind, body and spirit. Over the next few weeks we'll be exploring different forms of self-care and how to best realign parts of your mind and body that have been misaligned due to the business of life. Today we'll be guiding you through crystals, starting with an interview with Eunsoo, our resident crystal expert, and highlighting some of our favourite crystals.
How do you use them?
You can use them in your living space as a way to emit positive energy, create a protective barrier or attract prosperity, peace or love etc. You can also wear them on your body as a necklace or keep one in your bra. It is best to wear them but I like to keep my favourite crystals in a nice small pouch in my handbag.
Is it possible for crystals to be contaminated by negative energy?
What crystals do you recommend for "beginners"?
Amethyst is a powerful crystal that repels \negative energy and transforms unwanted energy into love and emits positivity. We recommend keeping it with you while you travel as it can protect you from the evil eye. It also is an excellent stress reliever, can help uplift your mood and calm fears and anxiety.
The Turquoise stone aligns with the Throat Chakra and is believed to be the bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds. Known for its protective and healing qualities, Turquoise is the talisman of kings, shamans and warriors and acts as a protective good luck charm when given as a gift. This stone promotes leadership, creativity and since it’s a crystal of travel, it helps protect your goods from theft, loss or attack.
The Clear Quartz is commonly referred to as the “Master Healer”. This stone can be used alone or it can be used to intensify the energy of other crystals. This universal crystal is suited for all zodiac signs and it can help increase awareness, stimulate brain function and increase positive energy.
Fluorite, primarily Purple Fluorite, is a stone of protection. Similarly to Clear Quartz, this stone absorbs and counteracts negative energy. It can also increases positivity, self-confidence and concentration. This is a great stone to keep when studying and we recommend keeping it on your work desk.
