We all have days when we feel down and the world seems like a dreary place. Perhaps you are feeling a bit sad right now and need a boost of positive energy? Know that you can always turn to crystals for support and guidance!
Crystals can help to calm your mind, soothe your soul, and enhance your energy levels with their gentle, uplifting vibrations.
There are so many wonderful ways to work with crystals, such as meditating with them, creating your own crystal healing grid, or wearing them as jewelry.
The following is my intuitive selection of 3 crystals to boost your mood, plus simple ways you can use these crystals in your everyday life-
1.) Peacock Ore – See the magic in each moment
A crystal of optimism and joy, Peacock Ore teaches you to live your life to the fullest. When you’re feeling blue, this crystal will bring a dash of bright color into your everyday routine.
Peacock Ore teaches you to love your life and to truly appreciate each moment. Its vibrant colors give you an instant dose of uplifting energy.
Working with this crystal reminds you to see yourself in the most favorable light you can imagine, for that’s when your life will start to shift in miraculous ways.
The message that Peacock Ore brings us is that life is full of magic and wonder, and it is our job to open our eyes to the multitude of miracles happening all around us every single moment.
As we start to notice these miracles in the mundane everyday situations, we remember our connection to the divine and our life becomes a sacred journey full of magic and blessings.
2.) Unakite – Seize the day!
If your mind is overwhelmed by painful memories of the past and anxiety about the future, working with Unakite crystal helps bring your awareness back to the present.
We all feel a bit stuck sometimes. Perhaps we are holding onto something from our past, feeling afraid to move forward, yet unable to go back to the way things once were. For instance, we might be clinging to our thoughts and feelings from yesterday, thereby blocking the natural flow of life.
New energy cannot enter your life when the energy of the past is taking up too much space. If this sounds familiar to you, you might be stuck between two worlds.
Working with a Unakite crystal reminds you that in this place, between what was and what will be, lies the present moment, full of boundless potential.
Being stuck can have a huge effect on your mood by making you feel anxious and scared. Unakite crystal can help you regain a sense of clarity and direction. Meditating with this crystal calms down an overactive mind and slows down the stream of rushing thoughts in your head.
3.) Turquoise – Be carried away to an ocean paradise
Working with a Turquoise crystal connects you with the healing waters of planet Earth. Holding a piece of Turquoise crystal in your hands and gazing at its bright-blue hues can boost your mood instantly.
Since ancient times, Turquoise crystal has been believed to surround its wearer with a powerful shield of protection. Working with this crystal cleanses and strengthens your energy field, which in turn raises your vibrational frequency and uplifts your mood.
Turquoise crystal reminds you that no matter what you are going through, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. In case you are feeling heartbroken, the vibrant vibrations of Turquoise can help shift your focus to more optimistic thoughts.
Working with a Turquoise crystal can be a very calming and nurturing experience, as this crystal conjures up images of azure ocean water which brings a sense of tranquillity and bliss.
How to use these 3 crystals for boosting your mood
Wear or Carry
You can wear these crystals in the form of jewelry or carry them in your purse or pocket. That way, you will be connected to their uplifting energies throughout your day.
Another way to tap into the energies of these crystals is to place them with intention in your home or workspace. The positive vibrations of the crystal will spread throughout your home or work environment, thereby enhancing your mood and general well-being. Looking at the crystal will also remind you to bring your awareness back to the present moment.
A fun and creative way to connect with the properties of these crystals is to create your own crystal healing grid. Just arrange the crystals in a sacred geometric shape (free templates are available on the web), and set an intention you wish to manifest. The combined energies of the crystals will charge your intention with extra power.
Hold any of these three crystals in your hands while you meditate, as this will help calm your mind and focus on the here and now. Meditating with crystals can also help you connect with higher realms so you can receive support and guidance from your spirit guides.
You can also recite the following mantra I have channeled for you during or after your meditation:
Today I feel happy to be alive, as I know that my life is full of magic and blessings.
