Three Lesser Known Crystals for Attraction: Bring the Magic Your Way

What attracts you the most?

Don't be shy. Make a list and do not edit yourself. What do you really want out of life? Who are you now and what are you doing to continue to become the person you most want to be?

Heady stuff, I know. But as the brilliant Robin Williams said, "Embrace that little bit of madness within. It's all we've got and we can't deny our true nature. It's what propels us towards our greatness. Go be extraordinary."

Whether you believe in the power crystals possess or not, one thing is for sure - whatever power we believe any object to contain is a power we have within us, even if we have yet to tap into the fullness of it's potential.

Crystals have gained so much popularity and momentum over the last decade because those who use them in meditation manifest the things in life they desire the most. They go the extra mile. These individuals embrace and embody every tool at their disposal. They are as open as a fully bloomed lotus and they radiate their intentions into every space they inhabit.

No, there is no scientific evidence that crystals can do any of the highly charged magic their various meanings promise. But could placing a labradorite crystal on your root chakra open you up to your true dharma with a brilliant and illuminating light because of your intention to see the truth? There's only one way to find out....

Using crystals for attraction helps us be clear about our truest intentions

This is how crystals work. Every time you see, touch and utilize a given crystal, you'll think about its attributes. They provoke us to look within and both realize and truly recognize all that we are and everything we really want.

Make a list. Don't edit. Just begin. I want...

  • love
  • excitement
  • unexpected adventures
  • happiness
  • success
  • acknowledgment
  • insight
  • inspiration
  • joy
  • passion
  • devotion
  • to impact the lives of others positively
  • compassion
  • empathy
  • connection

This is just to get you started. Don't hold back. And if you're open to utilizing crystals for attraction to bring all that you want your way, here are a few extra powerful gemstones to add to your manifestation arsenal:

  1. Rhyolite has properties that help us wade through the waters of old muck each of us carries around. It assists in purging old stories and releasing past mistakes and choices that lead us down paths of rumination and steer us away from our current lives and purpose. Does your self-esteem need a little boost? Right, who among us couldn't benefit from feeling as wonderful about ourselves as we deserve to feel? Crystals for attraction of self-love and appreciation need to be easily reachable. Touch it many times throughout the day as a reminder to be present and embrace the incredible human you are and all of the possibilities waiting for you to explore them.
  2. Kambaba Jasper is a compass. When fears hold us back, this crystal is on the ready to point us in other directions. And even when these new directions scare us, listening to that not so little voice inside telling us to go for it and side-step fear is the north star we need to follow. Wear this gorgeous stone as an amulet protecting you from holding yourself back.
  3. Fluorite offers tranquility. Are you looking for ways to calm your mind, balance your chakras, and renounce negativity? Meditate on these qualities and feel the magic of intention flourish first in your heart and then to the world around you.

We go back to ancient remedies and time-tested natural healers over and over because we want to feel good. No, we want to feel empowered and to know ourselves in ways that better the world. Let's practice together.

Muladhara (Root Chakra): Heal Your Anxiety with This Guided Meditation

DO YOU FEEL ANXIOUS, UM, BASICALLY ALWAYS?

It’s something so many of us are totally used to and we don’t even realize that we’re walking around in a constant state of stress and worry. And that it’s not ‘normal’. It’s our normal. Damn.

If you smile at a stranger and they don’t smile back, are you deflated?

If you text a friend and they don’t reply that same day, are you convinced the friendship is dead and maybe you imagined it after all?

Okay, aside from the melodrama, these are indications that anxiety is a driving force in your life and it’s a really tough way to live second to second. There is, thank the stars, a deeply practiced and proven solution for the relentless stress of anxiety.

Choose to heal

Oh, okay, super easy. I’ll get right on that. Healing only takes ALL the energy and tools at our disposal. Healing means we have to get up and over what stands in our way and change, even positive change is scary.

But it’s totally worth it. Once we heal. We don’t have to go back and do it all over again. It’s not like our hamstrings. They need constant attention and diligence. Healing old wounds means we can move up and on. We’ve shifted our chakra system and we’ve started at the root.

Always start at the root of the issue, not the symptoms

Muladhara is our first chakra. Its located at the very base of our spine and it’s main responsibility is offering us a sense of security and safety. So much can happen throughout our lives as a result of shocks to our sense of security and what we believe we can rely on in this world.

Muladhara is all about grounding. Our upbringing can offer us a deep sense of this or quite the opposite. And if the opposite is our basic understanding of the world – that security is an illusion and everything can fall apart at any given moment, it’s pretty darn difficult to feel any sense of peace and surrender to trusting that the universe will provide.

Anxiety is powerful, but so are we, and we’re stronger than any one emotion. Every emotion only has the depth of power and intensity that we attribute to it. Grounding and developing a sense of rooted support from the earth and those around us as well as the ideas and moral compass we’ve created help to dissipate this sense of instability.

Try this guided meditation to put your anxiety in perspective and work in the direction of healing your root chakra and creating the foundation for grounded strength that you both deserve and has been there all along.

(Muladhara chakra is connected to the color red, associated with the earth element, and to our sense of smell. Fear is the roadblock in bringing balance into this chakra. Anxiety is just another name for fear. Let’s go.)

Lay down on the earth, preferably outside to create a more keen sense of being connected to the earth’s floor. Find a grassy, dry spot that lets the sun peak through the trees. Press your hands directly into the grass or dirt. Dig in. 

Make sure the color red is represented either in the form of jewelry, clothing, a blanket you’ve placed under your knees or a crystal such as red jasper. Red jasper is powerful in its ability to create a more receptive and open sensation within the root chakra. It also connects the root to the sacral chakra, stimulating connection there. Place the crystal right at on your pelvis about 3-4 inches below your belly button.

Choose wise words of encouragement Breath in serenity, breath out fear. Breath in empowerment, breath out insecurity. Continue to pursue your breath feeling it become wider, more vast and offering a stronger sense of clarity. Keep finding more words to represent who you are right now and who you continue to become Defy old, destructive identifying words that do not serve you or your purpose and desire for security and a strong foundation. 

Visualize an image that offers you comfort. Color this image red. For example, if that image is a lotus (the symbol for the root chakra), on the inhale allow the color of the lotus to get deeper and more vivid in your mind. On the exhale as you’re sending the old thoughts away, see the color of your image waning and dissipating in depth. Take away it’s power. Send your energy to the new ideas and thoughts you’re cultivating as present truths. Breath and be.

As you complete your meditation. Move slowly away from the space, being mindful to touch the earth meaningfully. Perhaps you even bring a little with you to serve as a reminder as you move through your day. Namaste.
