A Quick Guide to Three Crystals for Self Love

Love it or loathe we  are in the month were many people celebrate Valentine’s Day, it always seems to come around somewhat quickly don’t you think?  Rather than looking at it from a traditional viewpoint of loving someone out there, I thought I’d take the opportunity and turn tradition on its head and go from looking out there for love to looking inward and loving your-self.

Many people say it is difficult to find the “me” time required to turn inward for some self-loving, so it gets put on the shelf and forgotten about.  But self-loving is so important as it raises the vibration of every cell in your body; it allows you to recognise that you are just as important as all those things, distractions and other people who take up your time.  It tells your whole self that you are worthy and that you honour and value yourself.

With all this self-loving in mind, I have selected three crystals to assist you in healing and loving your very own personal self.

Kunzite

Kunzite is a beautiful crystal that will assist you in healing any underlying emotional problems connected to your heart.

If others have emotionally hurt you in the past, this crystal will serve its purpose by opening your heart.  It lends a hand for self-observation so you are able to recognise, break down and let go of any protective walls that you may have previously built and by doing so you will eventually feel a profound sense of freedom by being able to express your heart felt feelings.

Kunzite loves to heal your emotional self and let joy and happiness flow into your life.

Rhodonite

This crystal is like that good friend who ultimately has your best interests at heart.

If you have a tendency to put yourself last or always forget about your own needs then the energy of Rhodonite will encourage you to recognise that doing this is a self-harming habit.

It is a crystal that offers you its heartfelt support, it wants to guide you so you recognise that your own needs are just as important as others, it boosts, nurtures and reinforces feelings of self-love.

Rhodonite is a fabulous crystal that will do its best to remove any self-destructive behaviours and it will work with you, encouraging you to create the time and space for personal care whilst easing in feelings of self-love.

Rose Quartz

One of the most popular crystals related to love; it would be difficult to leave it out, with its beautiful energies it seeks to promote unconditional love.

A truly gentle stone, Rose Quartz will help you in appreciating the true essence of all the love and beauty that is within and beyond you.  It is a crystal to open your heart on all levels.

This loving and giving crystal awakens the knowledge that within you there is deep-seated unconditional love, it has always been there.  This unconditional love is for you yourself also, to love yourself fully despite what you may see as flaws or failures.

Rose Quartz reminds you to love and accept yourself unconditionally.

 

These are just a few of the many crystals available, which relate to love and the energetic heart, you may be drawn to others if so go with them, trust your instinct and follow your heart.

February Where is the love?

WHERE IS THE LOVE?

Well I don’t know about you, but for me January has been a funny old month.  I could have gone down the hysterical route a couple of times if I had allowed myself, and I don’t mean in the hilarious sense either.  If you’d told me Mercury was in retrograde for the whole month I would have believed you, everything and anything played up.

Now we are here bobbing along into February and I for one am hoping for a smoother ride. With February comes Valentine Day, so come on hands up how many of you know that you are going to be receiving flowers, chocolates, little pieces of jewellery or in the case of a proposal maybe a big piece of jewellery for Valentines.

I had desires for a Valentines demonstration of some sort or another for many a year, about 30 to be precise, (I have a lot of stamina) I waited in vain…it never happened.  My other half never did give way to what he called “commercialism” he just didn’t buy into it.

I remember one time I decided not to bother buying him anymore Easter eggs, I’d done this consistently every year since we met. If you don’t like commercialism I thought, then my Easter egg offering just might make you choke!  Yes I was indignant

It’s so obvious now that I was looking for an outward demonstration of love and relying on Valentine Day for that, it can be difficult watching lines of bouquets arriving in your workplace with friends and colleagues excitedly talking about Valentine weekends away and Valentine meals in or out, whilst in the meantime having nothing to add to the conversation, apart from “Oh that’s nice”.

Eventually I saw the bigger picture and came to a place where I accepted that much love was offered to me every day, if only I’d look.  I didn’t feel the need for a token gesture anymore, I recognised I had someone who stayed through thick and thin, who offered multitudes of little things every day and gave me huge space to grow and just to top it off brought a fantastic sense of humour to the relationship.  Most of all as cliché as it sounds, I found the place to love myself so it was no longer a demand on someone else.

The point I’m making is, rather than projecting outwards on to others for our fulfilment, if we take a deep breath and start to take a good look inside our own self and perhaps ask “why is there this need in me, what is it saying to me?”  We are then able to resolve the anguish that we ourselves create.

When my husband hears it’s so and so day, it does rather irritate him and he still makes comments saying “days for this”, “days for that”, but it doesn’t matter to me any more.

If though, Valentine Day rubs you up the wrong way and you have sentiments like I used to, with tongue in cheek, I found a couple of other “days” in which you can celebrate that may be more acceptable to you or your partner.  Are you ready?

National Frozen Yogurt Day (I kid you not) First Monday in February.

Not quite what you were looking for?  Then how about…..

Open That Bottle Night (Not sure people will wait for this) Last Saturday in February.

AMBER

Amber a crystal for February

Amber has captivated humans for thousands of years and over that time in medicinal terms has become known as the Elixir of Youth.  Warm to the touch and associated with the sun it is a favourite of many.

It is not strictly a Crystal but is embraced as such due to its fabulous healing qualities and sunny disposition.  Amber is actually a fossilized tree resin which often has insects or plant material entombed within.

This organic resin has been used for centuries as a pain relief and also to boost vitality.  It is believed to remove restrictions and melt rigid attitudes that we ourselves have created.  It also has the ability to protect us against outside influences.  You can place a piece of Amber on your Solar Plexus to enhance creative expression and enthusiasm for life.

Any captured insects or plant material found within the Amber will energetically enhance it with those same inherent qualities.

Visit the Wisdom of Wellbeing shop  or view our newly listed Amber pendants.   Have you seen our February product of the month  there’s a 25% discount using code feb25 at the checkout (until February 28th 2017)

You can also find a page on therapies there too.

So in the meantime, enjoy all that February brings whether it is bouquets of flowers or frozen yogurt.

Wishing you oodles of Crystal Rays and Happy Days,

Lorraine
