Healing Crystals 101: Finding the Right One for You

Healing Crystals

Little do people know that nowadays contemporary medicine has pushed its way forward and brought alternative and complementary healing treatments closer to humankind. Amongst acupuncture, herbs, and other nature-inspired ways, the most notorious way might be through precious healing stones. These flabbergasting gems have a lot to offer, but the greatest benefit of them might be their unique ability to mindfully affect our body, mind, and soul. So, if you’re still wondering what exactly are they meant to do, and which one would suit you the best, here is a thorough guide that will help you comprehend their allure.

Healing crystals uplift your mood

It is essential to know that healing crystals cannot do wonders, but they can give you some unknotted energy that can utterly revive your spirit. Crystals like selenite help uplift your mood after being surrounded by an abundance of blood-sucking nagging people. By carrying some of the healing crystals either in your pocket, wallet, or around your neck, your new energy can easily fight off the energy of those seemingly anxious and negative individuals. Blue lace agate crystal can also uplift your spirit and fill you up with serene energy.

Healing stones help restore love and harmony

Most rock crystals have the genuine ability to activate the heart chakra, which means filling your body with life, love and tenderness. We all know that love and compassion are some of the biggest healing elements when you feel disappointed or let down. Rose quartz crystal, for instance, symbolizes love, calmness, and trust in oneself, just as the color suggests. Hence, if you were to try healing with rose quartz crystal your body will recharge with vibrating and loving energy, just as if you were meditating for hours. You can wear this gorgeous gem either like a ring or a pendant. 

Healing crystals reawaken your energy

When we feel down and overwhelmed, there is no need to resort to any modern medicines, but on the contrary, turn to healing crystals. Tiger’s eye crystal is known for its ability to help get rid of negativity, fear, and nervousness out of your system. Besides Tiger’s eye, there is citrine that encourages motivation, optimism, and warmth, and at the same time, helps boost creativity and energy. Only, try to keep your crystals closely by your side so you can maximally feel its energy.

Healing crystals have protective properties

Precious stones can also act as protective healers as they shield you from negativity and the world’s bad influences. Obsidian is one of the protective crystals that can keep you safe from any physical or emotional injuries. Plus, if you happen to have problems with digestion and detoxification, obsidian can help you ease up the pain. Simultaneously, amethyst is equally protective and purifying. This magnificent stone promotes sobriety and helps boost clarity. If you have any issues with lack of sleep or stress, wearing or carrying amethyst will help you relieve insomnia, pain, and keep your body and mind from other negative elements.

Healing crystals restore wisdom and vitality

If you are looking for a magic aid that will help you find inner peace, revamp your vitality levels, and encourage patience and sanity, go for sapphire, bloodstone, or ruby. Ruby triggers sensuality and enhances your intellect and self-awareness. Likewise, bloodstone can help you advance your circulation and help you push out the faulty feelings of irritability and impatience. While sapphire eases depression and attracts wisdom.

Finding the right healing crystal for you might seem like a difficult task but not an impossible one. Once you touch or sense its powers while just holding it, you might immediately recognize which one suits you the best.

Clarifying Words for Head vs Heart Decisions

Head vs Heart

When faced with a head vs heart decision, we find ourselves conflicted between what we feel and what we know.

Our intuition and our knowledge seem to oppose each other. We find ourselves unable to make a decision; we can’t simply disregard either perspective.

We value both of these perspectives because, on some level, we know that there is truth in each of them.

If we manage to reconcile these two perspectives, we can make a more informed and more effective choice than if we were to disregard either one.

Intuition vs Emotionality

Sometimes, we find ourselves emotionally inclined towards something that defies our better judgement.

This emotionality can have many sources; some constructive, and some destructive.

At its best, our intuition represents knowledge that lies just beneath the surface. When we get a funny feeling about someone or something, it is usually because we have observed something subconsciously.

It may be a discrepancy, a loophole, or something otherwise suspicious. It is something we know, yet can’t quite describe.

For instance, if we know intuitively that a certain choice could backfire, we will probably get an unsettling feeling. That makes intuition a useful tool, worth our consideration.

Our intuition is confounded when our emotions lead us astray. If we have conflicts of interest, or if our insecurities are at play, our intuition may mislead us.

Because of this, intuition alone is not a basis for a decision. Rather, intuition is a clue that prompts us to do more conscious investigation, so we can find the source of that funny feeling we have.

Knowledge vs Bias

This is how our knowledge can fill in the gaps left by our intuition. When our dilemma seems impossible to resolve, we can often satisfy our discomfort by finding the basis for our intuition.

If our intuition is caused by a conflict of interest or personal insecurity, further investigation will help us discredit it. This will lead our misplaced intuition to be replaced by a calm, secure sense of resolve.

If we really think about our choices, we can develop forethought, allowing us to anticipate and prepare for things that would have otherwise ambushed us. When we can predict the consequences of any particular decision, the choice often becomes clear.

The trouble with knowledge is our inability to know when it is incomplete. Too often, we only have half the story, even when we think we are fully informed. We may take action with full confidence of the turnout, only to find ourselves surprised and unprepared.

To make matters worse, our emotionality interferes with our knowledge, causing bias. Despite our good intentions, we may unknowingly seek out information that suits our emotions, rather than investigating impartially.

This is where our sense of intuition can help us resolve our uncertainty.

Head vs Heart

We can have the best of both worlds. Knowledge and intuition are not mutually exclusive; they are complementary.

We should strive to reconcile these two perspectives. If we choose only one, we ignore the insight that the other had to offer us. We make a less informed decision, leaving us flying blind.

On the other hand, if we can combine the insight from both our head and our heart, we see the bigger picture; we make better decisions with greater confidence.

But even with such a holistic perspective, it is true that knowledge is largely determined by our emotions. These emotional barriers can make it impossible to be certain of our own objectivity. When this is the case, we must borrow the impartiality of others.

Guidance

Asking for help is a valuable tool that can help us break through this barrier. People who are not personally involved in our situation can offer us an unemotional, non-conflicted perspective.

This perspective can offer us a constructive sense of doubt when we are too certain of ourselves, and reinforce our confidence if our perspective is clear.

Nevertheless, their interpretation is limited by the information we give them, which itself is subject to our own interpretation. They are also biased by their loyalties and preconceptions.

Vigilance

We should therefore always be conscientious. There is no such thing as total certainty; hasty confidence should be viewed with skepticism.

The closest we can get to true certainty is a calm assuredness, based on an unemotional interpretation of what we know (including an awareness of what we do not know).

We can reach this point by using all the tools in our arsenal. Through this variety, we can gain insight about our dilemmas as they arise.

As we practice this investigation repeatedly, we begin to recognize patterns, both in the outcomes of our decisions and in our personal biases. Not only do we prosper from our own good decisions; we gain wisdom about ourselves and the world around us.

5 Positive Thoughts Your Heart Needs Before Going To Sleep

heart needs

Rejection, disagreements, conflicts, self-pity, hurt all these companions are hard to let go of.
After a hard day’s work when you reach home, all these emotions finally get to you. Your heart needs to let go all the burdens.

You have to maintain a professional, emotionless facade at your workplace or institutes. But the mask falls off when you reach home.

You fell the overload of these repressed emotions and going to sleep with them in mind can really be dangerous for you.

It’s not a joke. It could lead you straight to depression.

Save your day from negative thoughts.

Just think of it this way. Every one must have a smartphone, and you need to charge it periodically after the battery drains.

It’s similar to your body and your mind. Giving into the negative thoughts is like saying, “Screw it! Let the phone die. What do I need it for?”

Just like you need your phone for almost everything today, you need your body and mind, both of them working in sync.

So, you shouldn’t just satisfy your physical cravings but emotional ones as well.

So, when you go to bed next time. How about you feed your soul and mind as well? Watch for your heart needs.

Here are 5 positive thoughts that will help you with your goal.

1. “We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”

What you have to understand here is the difference between addiction and passion. When you are passionate about what you have planned you should not divert from the path even in the face of some obstacles or roadblocks.

Addiction will lead you astray. It could be your addiction to toxic things that appear toxic like alcohol, pills, gambling or it could be something completely harmless as watching movies all the time.

But both of them lead you astray.

Gambling is a perfect example for us to explore here.

Suppose someone who is good at numbers decides that gambling is a job for him. But is he being smart about it?

Is he investing the money he earned or just gambling it away in a string of wins and losses?

Is he drinking it all away?  When it stops being productive in all sorts of ways (financial, spiritual, etc), should seek new and positive things.

The right time to move on is when the passion turns into addiction. No matter how hard it is welcome the new life that is waiting for you.

2. “Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.”

Hope springs eternal or does it?

How many times have you felt so lost that you never thought that you could wake up the next day? That you just couldn’t take it anymore. Why do these things keep happening to me?

This is when you start to get the feeling of doom and you feel like someone is actually telling you  ‘abandon hope all ye who enter here.’

When it happens why don’t you try saying this to yourself?

“Well, boohoo. I’m so sorry your feelings are hurt, Princess.”

You are going to get hurt. There’s no way around it. Sulk for a few days if you have to but there will come a time when you have to say enough is enough and get over it.

Let your experiences shape you. If you just broke up with someone you might feel like relationships are not for you. Think about this, would you have been happy with that person in long term? Why did it not work out? What does your heart needs?

You are not the reason it didn’t work out. Things were just not meant to be. You were not suited for each other. So, rather than giving up on relationships altogether, why don’t you learn why you didn’t suit and avoid that in the partner you next choose?

heart need

3. “Storms make trees take deeper roots”

This is a new one but you must have heard about how “Even the stars need darkness to shine.”

This thought means mostly the same thing.

When you weather the storm you emerge a victor. Because even when everything else was blown away by the storm, you stood strong and kept control on the thing.

You did not let the storm blow you away like it did all the other things in sight. It only made you take deeper roots.

So, congratulate yourself that you are still standing strong. You can hold on for far much longer and be this amazing individual that you are.

Isn’t it a good thing to tell yourself before you fall asleep?

It is.

4. “IF you are searching for that one person that will change your life, take a look in the mirror.”

If you are looking for a partner because you feel that he/she can give a new and better direction to your life then think again.

Or better yet why don’t you find a mirror and take a good look at the person who can actually do that for you?

You are the only one who can decide what to do with your life. No one else can help with it. You can try yoga and go for spiritual retreats but they will only work as deep down as you have made the choice to do it.

Next time you look in the mirror don’t admire yourself, for a change think about what kind of changes you want to happen in your life and how you can go about making them.

“Mirror Mirror on the wall who’s gonna change it all?”

You. The answer is always going to be you. 

5. “Don’t be afraid of being different, be afraid of being the same as everyone else.”

Here’s another thought worth remembering.

Remember seeing a girl/guy out there and thinking wish I looked like her/him?

Do not feel sorry for yourself and you actually think about it. They might look cool but they could be plastics. There are many people out there who look just like them.

And then there is you. You might not have the same style or you might not like putting much effort in what you look like but you are you.

You are unique, the way you dress defines you. It is what sets you apart. Why do you want to be clones of other people running out there? Be yourself and enjoy being it.

Here’s the thing. If you go looking for negative things you will find them just the same way if you go looking for positive things you will find them.

And you will make mistakes along the way. Sometimes you will want to give up and say, “I can’t carry the facade of being happy, I do it every day at work or outside the house. Why do I have to keep it up even at home? I need a break.”

To clear things up. A facade is a mask that you put up to fool others. And no matter how hard you try, you can’t fool yourself about your real feelings and emotions.

What you are doing at home is not a facade it is you trying to feed your soul with positive energy. These are just a few positive thoughts. If you go looking you will find so much more. So, think one positive thought a day or a month before you go to sleep.

Don’t just say it out loud and go to sleep. Feel the thought, understand it and it will help you.

15 Things You Can Do To Attract Positive Energy

positive vibes1

Learning how to harness positive energy on a daily basis – transform your daily routine with these tried and true methods for attracting positive vibes.

Sometimes it can be too much to go through a day without feeling exhausted both physically and mentally. We all need some positive vibes and energy to do our daily tasks no matter what.

While some people have it in their bones to attract positive energy without much effort, others struggle to find a safe haven that can help them relax and unwind. What are some of the tried and true things you can do in order to attract some positive energy into your life right now and start your day anew?

1. Learn to let go

Holding grudges towards your friends or acquaintances rarely ends well. While sometimes it may create office rivalry or healthy competition, at other times it can create rifts between would-be friends. Learn to let go of the negative thoughts you may be harboring towards someone else.

The truth is that we simply don’t know where some people come from and what brought them to confront us in the first place. Keep this in your mind the next time you come face-to-face with an ill thought towards someone.

2. Listening to upbeat music

Positive vibes come in many forms, not the least of which is music that can help you overcome negative thoughts. Many genres such as jazz, chill or acoustic can help you not only relax but embrace the day in a different perspective.

Don’t rely on music that emphasizes dancing or electronic instruments that serve to make your heart race. Music that relaxes and lets you think is the best way to attract some positive vibes in no time whatsoever.

3. Visualize before acting

We are all guilty of acting on impulse and regretting the decisions we have made. Visualizing the action you are about to enact is a good way of letting yourself think before doing something you might regret. The same applies to college tests, job interviews, and even company meetings.

Every word you say can and will have a ripple effect on your life moving forward. Visualize those results in different scenarios and you will live a much more positive daily life as a result.

4. Less future talk

Talking about the future and planning your career is great. However, those plans should be as loose as possible if you don’t want to bum yourself out later on. People map their lives out to a great extent only to realize that a lot of what is happening around them isn’t under direct control.

Think about the future as an idea but never let yourself rely on a “better tomorrow” just because you are dealing with a lot of things right now. Focus on what’s important in the moment and let the future happen by itself.

5. Learn to embrace, not hate

Of course, you are not going to like the new dress your wife bought for herself. Your son might come home with a low grade and feel scared to even come near you because of it. The favorite pizza place you often visited has been shut down indefinitely with no hopes of coming back. These things will happen all the time and they are all part of life. Hating yourself, those around you or something third entirely won’t bring you any more happiness.

Learn to embrace change and the things coming your way without jumping to conclusions. Shutting off most of the hate will automatically make your positive energy skyrocket without you even realizing it.

6. Be as objective as possible

Most of the negativity in our lives can be attributed to subjectivity. We are the product of our parents, friends, family, and society. They shaped us into who we are today, and the person we became sometimes comes to contact with things it doesn’t really like.

This is where objectivity comes into play as a means to distance ourselves from negativity. Just because someone is different or does something different than we’d like them to it doesn’t mean they are unworthy of our attention. Be objective as much as possible and don’t let your personal judgment come in the way of happiness.

7. Express through writing

One of the easiest and most creative ways to express your inner thoughts and emotions is through writing. Anyone can write, whether they want to admit that or not. While some people are more apt to write essays, others prefer song lyrics or wordplay. You can even use a professional service such as rewardedessays to help you out with editing and formatting if you are unable to manage by yourself.

The most important thing is to let your mind and hand do most of the work without thinking about the end result. Depressurize your mind and let go of stray thoughts by putting them on paper and seeing what comes of it.

8. Spend time in nature

Nature is one of the best positive energy conductors on the planet. You don’t have to go too far to enjoy nature to its fullest. Local parks, riverside walkways or even mountain paths can be a good way to stretch your legs and breathe some fresh air. Being inside too much is one of the main causes of depression and anxiety which are directly linked to negative energy. Do yourself a favor and go out as much as possible for short stretches of time.

9. Act selflessly now and then

While volunteer work and NGOs aren’t for everyone, you can still do something selfless every now and then without expecting a reward. There are people all around us who are suffering to unimaginable degrees, not the least of which are homeless people without hope for redemption.

Giving someone money on the street, standing up in the city bus or letting someone in line in front of you is a gentle gesture that most will be shocked by. Do something that will make you happy for someone you barely even know and see your positive energy shift to a whole new level.

10. Shut off the negative

Negative people will always be around to make us feel miserable without even realizing it. While some people struggle with family or close friends, others are under constant pressure from coworkers or college professors. Learn to let go of their negativity by trying to understand things from their point of view.

Very rarely will someone be mean to you by pure chance – there is always a good reason for their personal reasoning and suffering. Shut these negative influences out by focusing on yourself and what makes you happy in life.

11. Accept yourself

Many of us are unhappy with the way we look, sound, walk or talk. It is very little we can do to change what our parents gave us and most people find that unsatisfying. Accepting yourself for who you really are is one of the best things you can do in a lifetime.

The amount of happiness and positive energy on the other side of fear is something you should seriously consider. Just think about all the people who can’t walk or see with their own eyes and what they would do to be in your place. The world is a cruel place and you should be your own best asset in making ends meet in life.

12. Smile a little

Smiling does a lot more than just show your teeth to whoever you are talking to. It shows that you are genuinely ready to listen to your fellow speaker and attract positive energy wherever you go. Sometimes smiling in front of the mirror for a couple of seconds can make all the bad thoughts go away.

It can be hard to make yourself smile if the world simply won’t give you a much-needed break but it does help to try. Repeat this small ritual any time you feel as if you are too deep in negativity and need to vent a little.

13. Learn to say “no”

Accepting to help others is a noble gesture up to a point where people start abusing it. There will always be coworkers or friends who want something free of charge and want it as soon as possible. Saying “no” to these people isn’t a bad thing – you do have your own life and worries to take care of.

Learn which tasks and favors are worth your time and don’t commit to promises you don’t intend to keep. Keeping your head clear of all the favors and promises that need to be cashed in will make you a more positive thinker in more ways than one.

14. Do some cardio

Sometimes all you need is a jog to clear your mind. Some people prefer treadmills while others opt for bikes or rollers. Anything that involves your physical exercise is a good release mechanism for negative energy. Being positive is far easier if you feel good about your body.

Give yourself a few moments of cardio each day in order to fill that positive energy bar to it’s fullest any time you feel you need to get out of the house. You might even meet a new friend or see something interesting along the way.

15. Live in here and now

A huge portion of negative energy can be dismissed simply by focusing on the task at hand. If you are at work, or at college, focus on what is happening at the moment. Don’t think about what might happen in several weeks or what happened the month before. Those things don’t matter as much as the moment you are in right now.

The present gives you a chance to shape your life to an unimaginable degree. Use that opportunity to take hold of your life and attract positive energy willingly, without worrying about what happened or might happen.

Living a positive life                                                                                                             

Being positive 24/7 is nigh impossible and you shouldn’t push yourself to achieve that state. There will always be something that bugs us at night and doesn’t go away no matter what we do. Learn to accept the things you can’t change and be aware of the things happening around you at the present. Only then will you be able to truly attract positive energy and learn to live your life more productively.
