Look at the 6 crystals below, which are you drawn to?
Don’t choose your favorite color, choose the one you are most attracted to at this moment.
You seek freedom, somewhere peaceful to calm your senses and hear your inner voice. Have you been feeling stressed and disconnected? Do you feel unsure of your path ahead and crave time alone to think? As this cloudy stone suggests, your vision is obscured by the hum drum of daily life and some alone time is called for. It's not necessarily that anything is 'wrong' with your life, but perhaps you feel it is running you rather than the other way around. As we approach the dawn of a new year, find time (if just for an afternoon) to assess things. You may discover when you think about your goals, you are in fact moving successfully towards them. When we spend quiet moments in contemplation the vibration of our body changes. It allows inspirational thoughts to pop into our head out the blue (this stone is associated with angel communication). Deep down you sense a connection with the 'other side', and they are waiting to talk to you and give you guidance.
No.2 Green Malachite
If you are attracted to this stone, you are (or are about) to go through a major life transformation. This transformation may be practical, changing the way you live and work, but it also goes much deeper. It is about spiritual evolution, energy blockages in your mind and body from past experiences being untangled and released. You are becoming wiser and in the process learning to truly value yourself. You may find the process unsettling, initially you become more aware of what you don't want, rather than what you do. That's fine. First we must acknowledge the need for change, only then can we start to look for alternatives. Malachite is the stone of prosperity and abundance, when you start to look up, luck and fortune are waiting. It can signify the end of destructive romantic relationships and the dawn of pure love. By picking this stone you are unconsciously telling the Universe, 'I am ready for success. I am ready to lose the negativity. I am ready to be passionate about my life'.
No. 3 Sun Stone
If you are attracted to this stone, you are beginning to feel more optimistic about the future. The power of the sun is energizing your body, enhancing your health and lifting fears and stress. The sun stone is an omen of good luck and signifies events taking a turn for the better. Imagine waking in the morning and your first emotion is JOY. Pure Joy because you have breath in your body and people in your life who love you. Once joy exists at this basic level, you attract more of the same. You are being given strength to overcome problems. Watch as magical alternatives appear. If you've been silently praying for a miracle, this is it. It is time for your day in the sun.
No. 4 Mahogany Obsidian
This is the stone of closure. If you chose it your unconscious is saying 'I am ready to break out of negative habits and become happy'. You are becoming grounded. Like a sudden revelation you can finally see that others are not more fortunate or more lucky than you. They have their problems too, although they choose not to show them. You ARE what you feel. Jealously, bitterness, feeling of being cheated by life, these emotions poison our system and lead to a downward spiral of misery. We only hurt ourselves. Fortunately, energy blocks in your system are disappearing speedily. At last you find the willpower to break free of negativity (and perhaps negative situations or people) and embrace peace. As 2014 begins expect to feel expectantly happy in your skin. The breakthrough is realizing that the only path to long-lasting happiness is appreciating what you have, rather than what you don't have.
No 5: Howlite
If you are attracted to this stone you have been receiving messages from the 'other side', either in the form of dreams, thoughts out of the blue, visions or seeing repetitive numbers or words. You are being intuitively guided in a certain direction - acknowledge your intuition and listen to it. It knows without thinking - it is your short-cut to success. If you've had trouble sleeping it may be you are ignoring a gut feeling about someone or some situation. By acknowledging and going with the flow, spiritual breakthroughs will occur. You are not alone, you are never alone in this journey. The Howlite crystal is a message from the world of spirit that a new spirit guide awaits you. Your guide plans to elevate you to levels beyond your wildest dreams. All they ask is that you believe in them, and take their hand.
Additional: Howlite denotes luck to those hoping for a baby, or who are already pregnant. It is an omen of a healthy, strong baby.
No.6: Dalmatian Jasper
Time to bring fun and humor back into your life! If you chose this crystal, the little voice within is screaming 'lets play again'. Perhaps you have been feeling down, disillusioned, worried or a little cynical. The Dalmatian Jasper reminds us that we are spiritual souls having a physical experience. We only have so many years on this planet before returning to energy form, so let’s enjoy it!!. Even the worst of situations can be brightened by humor - if not for your own sake, then for those around you. Sense of humor binds families and friends. It helps us cope with difficulties at the very instant we are laughing. It sends a message to the world, and the Universe, that I will not be fazed and I will win the day.
Additional: Dalmatian jasper is an anti-smoking crystal - for those with a niggling thought to give up cigarettes, consider this a cosmic order to do so!
