The Crystals Every Person Needs - Part 2 Claiming Yourself

Back in the day, when people used to use punch cards to program computers that took up entire rooms, they had an expression, "Garbage in, garbage out."  It meant that whatever you put into a system is exactly what you took out.  An updated version of "Sow, shall you reap."  Think about those two expressions.  In more than 5,000 years the only thing that changed was the social reference, not the actual message.  Human experience is more consistent than we realize.

Each day we are influenced by our contact with other people and situations.  Our energy fields bush against each others and as Lucard's Principal states, whenever two objects come in contact, there is an exchange of matter.  Granted, he was talking about the physical plane, but in actuality, the same transference occurs energetically.  People's negative, or low vibrational energy effects you and it's much easier for them to pull you down to their frequency than it is for you to raise them up to yours.  Always keep in mind that no one has the right to determine your day and that by learning to clear and ground yourself you are taking responsibility for who you are and who you wish to become.

The following is a list of stones that can help clear and balance to your energy flow.  You can meditate with them, wear them or sometimes its simply enough to be around them.

Apatite  -  Clears away mental confusion and weariness.  It offers good balancing energy and can be      
                 used to activate you in the direction of humanitarian pursuits.  It can also be used as an aid
                 to making healthier eating choices (yay!).

Amethyst - Opens and activates the crown chakra.  This is a stone a spirituality and assists in divine
                   meditation, assimilating new ideas and understanding the links between cause and effect
                   within yourself.

Ametrine -  A blend of Amethyst and Citrine that induces mental clarity.  It clears a pathway between
                   physical form and your highest self.  This stone is self-clearing.  It balances male and female
                   energies, assists in the development of consciousness, releases blockages and disburses
                   negativity from your aura.  I call this stone, "one stop energy shopping."  Ametrine will help
                   you bring buried issues into the light and is an very strong protector.  It also guards against
                   psychic attack.

Aqua Aura Quartz - Stimulates the throat chakra and releases stress.  It assists you in speaking your truth
                                 and releasing negativity. Think of it as the stone that helps you find your voice.

Rose Quartz - This stone is the stone of unconditional love.  It will teach you the nature of love, how to
                        express it and how to receive it.  Rose Quartz opens the heart chakra, comforts you in
                        grief and draws love and relationships to you. I have a huge chunk of it sitting in my
                        house and it's wonderful.

Citrine  -    Brightens the dark corners in you and banishes fear.  It promotes inner calm and natural
                  wisdom.  Citrine will not hold negativity.  It's a stone of personal power and attracts money
                  and abundance.  Place it in a cashbox or carry a chip in your wallet.

Moonstone - One of the great emotional balancing stones.  It brings calmness and awareness. Moonstone
                     is also known as the "traveler's stone," offering protection during trips.  I wear it to balance
                     moods and bring serenity.  Its energy can also be used to suppress appetite (double yay!).

Carnelian -  A stone of action.  It increases your ability to analyze and aids in precision.  It can awaken
                   your talents, protect against anger, envy and rage and it can lift sorrows.  Carnelian is also
                   a great hearth and home stone.  It houses a gentle, loving energy akin to nurturing, yet it
                   dispels apathy and passive avoidance.

These are the basic crystals I choose to have around me.  Others might chose differently.  Please remember that each of the crystals named above have other attributes and uses and likewise there are other crystals that hold similar characteristics that you may prefer to use.  Also, where Ametrine and Citrine do not require clearing, the other stones mentioned can be cleared by running them under cold water or burying them in brown rice for twenty-four hours.

If you are experiencing issues and you are not certain of the origins, i.e. a feeling of sadness or malaise, a short temper, confusion.  I recommend doing a tarot reading and seeing what suits you pull.  For instance, an abundance of cups could be an emotional imbalance, swords, mental fatigue, stress and so on.  Think about what your reading might mean in terms of what crystals can best support your needs.
If you have any questions please email me.  I'd love to hear from you.

Life is abundant and if we focus on fear and stress, fear and stress is what we will create.  If we focus on joy, hope and prosperity we will see our world expand to fulfill our desires.  This is not a new concept.  Ask any motivational speaker and they'll tell you that.  Tarot and crystals are not an end unto themselves.  They are merely the tools you can use to open up your existence and develop the new skill set you need for your journey towards living a conscious life.  The universe is knocking.  All you have to do is open the door.
