Those of you that follow my blog & FB page regularly know I’m a bit of a crystal kid. Maybe it’s the pretty colours & the interesting shapes that draw me to crystals. It’s more like the crystals energy I’m attracted too.
During my daily meditations I always incorporate crystals. Why is this? Every crystal has it’s own healing properties. The crystals I select depend upon the meditation I am listening to & the healing I wish to receive. My intuition draws me to which meditation I need that day. Sometimes it’s guided, other times it’s sound therapy. I select my crystals the same way. Usually I just ‘know’ which crystals to use. Sometimes these change at the last minute as I reach for one crystal then go for a totally different one. The crystals I choose always make sense for that moment.
I do have my favourites crystals that do get used more often. In the picture below the ‘favourite’ features is the Atlantean Quartz channel crystal in the bottom right. This I received as a gift right at the time I was starting to use crystals to help tap into my inner guidance. It’s the perfect blend of yin & yang, masculine & feminine. The clear point in the masculine side makes it very strong & powerful. This crystal really helps open a clear channel within.
The other crystals I used this day were based around the theme of ‘releasing the fear of personal success.’ I mentioned in last Tuesdays post I’ve been reviewing my finances & accepting my self-worth. I do struggle with putting a price on my skills. I’ve got 100% better than this time last year. However there are some very pre-programmed patterns that need breaking & rebuilding.
Top Left: Strawberry Quartz.
This is a recent addition, I have many pieces of clear quartz but when I saw the strawberry the attraction was instant. It’s a very soft crystal that brings grounding energy to the heart & root. I placed this over my heart to help connect me with the earth. Heart to earth. I found its energy very soothing & gentle. The pink is very striking, not like the other pink crystals I have this is quite deep.
Top Right: Blue Apatite.
Placed over my throat chakra to remove any blockages about speaking out about my self-worth. Apatite clears any stale energy based around communication. When I don’t speak out & set my price I’m not living authentically.
Fear holds me back in this area. I get scared people will get angry if set my fees where my heart is telling me to. Worse I’ll lose their business. When in fact if I do lose their business for this reason they aren’t clients worth keeping, as they obviously don’t value my service. A blocked throat chakra can manifest in sore throats & swollen tonsils. My voice is one of my most valuable tools for my job so I must keep my throat healthy.
Bottom Left: Citrine.
Isn’t the colour fantastic? This crystal is known as the stone of abundance. It can assist in attracting success & prosperity. I really needed some Citrine to help transmute any negative energy based around my self-worth. By not thinking I was good enough to receive financial reward for my work then that is what would be attracted to me. I needed some assistance to reverse this thinking.
Citrines bright yellow colour comes from the sun making it a powerful cleanser. I placed Citrine over my Solar Plexus chakra to build my self-esteem & confidence.
Do you have any favourite crystals you like to meditate with or have close by. I’d love for you to share in the comments below.

This is a simple question right? Maybe not for some. I’m always looking for patterns & themes with my healing clients (& in my own life). We are all part of the universal ebb & flow. That means if something is affecting us individually it’s actually affecting us all on a whole. We are all one in the universe. There for it is important for my to aware of these patterns so I can best assist.
A theme this month has been strongly focused around joy. I myself have been asked many a time from my mentors ‘what brings you joy?’ These past few weeks I have been asking my clients the same question. I was totally shocked to be met with blank stares or ‘I don’t know, nothing.’ It breaks my heart when people become so disconnected with their hearts they don’t know what makes them tick. Its no wonder life is depressing & miserable if you are not connecting with your core & your passions.
With a little coaching based around the messages I receive intuitively in sessions I am able to guide clients back to their forgotten hobbies & loves. If you get sucked into the grind of life spending so much time not doing what you love & going with the slog I can see it might be easy forget. Life shouldn’t be like that, it should not be difficult or Soul draining.
Just like everyone else I’ve been experiencing a lack of joy but on a slightly different level. I haven’t been giving myself enough time off to do some self-love. (Check out this post for more.) Yes I love building my business & being of service this does bring me great joy. My life is based around doing what I love but I do need time off to just put my feet up & watch a movie. December there hasn’t been enough of this.
Here’s a really simple technique that I use to remind myself to do some self-love when I’m in danger of being all work, work, work.
My business coach advised me to make a ‘Soul Nurturing List.’ On this list I have put everything that I love to do, that brings me joy & nurtures my Soul. All of these are non-business related. Nothing on this list will give me a financial reward & nearly all but two of the twenty things will cost me no money. Even better, Soul- nurturing that is FREE! Most do not involve travel either I can do them at home. You just need to get creative.
When it’s time for my breaks in the day or on my day off I usually have a pretty good idea what I wish to do for fun. However if I get stuck or need some inspiration I get the Soul-Nurturing list out. I can easily pick something off the list to do in my spare time.
Here are few examples from my list:
- Painting or drawing
- Podcast (I’m loving Oprah’s free Soul Series right now)
- Watch a movie
- Horse riding
- At home spa day – facial, hair treatment, manicure & pedicure
- The list goes on….
The words ‘I’m bored’ shall never pass my lips that’s for sure.
If you have forgotten or just don’t know what brings you joy strip it back. Sit quietly somewhere, get comfortable & close your eyes. Breathe deeply & relax. Think right back to when you were a child. What was your favourite thing to do? Mine was to draw & paint or spend the day at the riding stables. These things are still in my life as an adult. You might like flower arranging, cooking, having a coffee with friends or walking alone on the beach. Everyone must have something they like to do. It’s just about remembering. It doesn’t need to cost money either. Most of mine don’t.
Go out there & give yourself some joy, it’s Christmas after all, a time to give back to yourself just as much to others.
With love K xx
