With the new year around the corner, this is a perfect time to highlight Citrine and it’s powers to help manifest. I personally have been thinking of my 2021 goals and the things that I would like to see myself achieve in the coming year, and I’ve kept Citrine front and center throughout the process.
A crystal that we’ve featured on our Instagram in the past, Citrine, is known as “The Merchants Stone”. It attracts wealth, prosperity and success. You can see how it could be good for business! This past year, my partner and I launched our business, and one of my goals is to definitely see it grow and prosper.
The sunny warm stone also promotes creativity. This year it was nice to tap back into creativity that I forgot existed in me. Citrine helped add energy and focus to that creativity as we developed ideas for different parts of our business and the direction we wanted it to go. Maybe I am biased (because Yellow is one of my top favorite colors), but I can’t help but to feel happy when I look at Citrine. It’s definitely a stone that can put you in a positive mindset and help you to elevate higher, which we all need after the year 2020 has been!
Natural Citrine is native to Brazil, and can be hard to come by. Alternatively- you can pick up a heat treated Citrine (though not natural, they still possess the same crystal energy), or you can also keep a Honey Calcite close. Honey Calcite (or Sun Honey as I like to call it ) is just as warm as Citrine and you can even find beautiful spheres with rainbow flashes! This gem promotes self-confidence and responsibility – the perfect combination to tackle those New Year resolutions head on!
What are some goals you have for the new year? What are some ways that Citrine could be that extra boost into making the most of 2021?
Celestite, also known as Celestine, is a great crystal for the New Year! It is most commonly known for its heavenly blue color, although some Celestite are white and orange. Celestite activates three main chakras – the throat, third eye, and crown chakras, allowing you to speak openly to any higher power that you call on. Singers and public speakers can practice with the openness that this gem provides.
The benefits of working with such a stone are plentiful as it helps you connect to the spirit world. Place Celestite bedside for dreams, and clearer messages. As beautiful as this stone is, it’s no surprise that the more you work with its energy, the more you start to see the beauty in all, good and bad! It also helps you radiate your inner beauty by bringing forth gratitude for the simple things. If you need help letting go of consumerism, hold this gem while making a list of the things and people in your life that you love, and it will help you acknowledge that you lack for nothing.
This angelic crystal cools down fiery personalities, if ever in a heated argument, think of the way the celestites hue is calming and serene and it can help to ease the tension! If you are meditating, allow Celestite to assist you in fortifying your mind, bringing you to a deeper meditative state. The best day to work with Celestite is Friday! The best way to cleanse this crystal is with wind, take it out and let the breeze flow through it!
