Soon enough all you’ll be doing, is running around without catching your breath due to the upcoming holiday season. Thanksgiving is basically around the corner, and Christmas is shortly after.
It’s an upcoming stressful season. But we all know it doesn’t just stop here.
Stress is a sneaky little grinch waiting to jump on us on every corner. A little stress is inevitable, but how do you restore your sense of calm when it constantly gets the best of you?
And it’s just a matter of time when the constant dancing on your shoulders eventually fatigues you. And the grinch is very good at keeping you blinded, leaving you clueless on how to get out of the rut.
How do you deal with stress? You most likely have your own rituals. (One of mine includes fatty foods. Wow it sounds so bad after typing it out. Oh well, it’s called comfort foods for a reason! Ha.)
I’m not telling you to change your habits. You know what works for you. (And who really wants to give up comfort foods?)
So if you have that moment to yourself, enhance it with crystals. It will help you take the time out of your day to really connect with your inner charger. Crystals make you go easy on yourself. Which in return is deeply calming and helps you shake the grinch off your shoulders faster. Your body and mind will thank you for it.
Here are my go-to crystals for occasions like this. See if you notice any difference in your energy by having them around.
Fluorite is a great stone to relieve anxiety, tension, and stress levels by detoxifying the emotional body. It can help get rid of mental blocks and related mental issues. Fluorite can reduce fear of the future and ease anger and depression. Fluorite can also remove confusion and mental "fog" to create a sense of order and harmony in one's life. Have it by your side when you’re taking time off.
Jade is a "dream stone," releasing negative thoughts and irritability by soothing the mind. It stabilizes the personality, integrating the mind with the body, to stimulate ideas and make tasks less complex and easier to act upon.
Use Malachite to regain your sense of strength. Because the grinch on your back blinds you, and can make you just exist with no purpose for days. Malachite never fails to bring about positive changes in one's life. It brings about these changes in a gentle and caring way, making the transition from one state to another an easy process.
Take care of yourself and use the tools that mother nature provided you with.
P.S. What’s your favorite comfort food? Mine is definitely a grilled cheese sandwich with all kinds of extras, depending on what I can get my hands on.
Wishing you a calm mind,
