Food, gifts, family, love… yeah, yeah, we get it. The holidays are meant to be a time of thanks, gratitude and sharing. You know, all the happy good stuff.
But let’s be real, traveling home to spend days on end with family can sometimes be, well, challenging.
I’ve already had a ton of friends swap excuses to avoid heading home, or at the very least dodge the ol’ what-are-you-doing-with-your-life interrogation from Uncle Bart.
To keep things moving smoothly, and saving you from losing your mind, it might be time you called on the good joo-joo of the Universe and kept some healing crystals close by. I mean, believer or not, it’s worth a shot!
So here we go, here are three healing crystals you need to get your mitts on to help survive the holidays.
Festive season or no, this is one crystal everyone needs to get their hands on. The Patronus of rocks, this is one super protective stone that will shield you from negativity. We’re lookin at you, Drunk Aunt Doris.
It also helps bring you to a heightened state of intuition and awareness when you’re meditating, so use it to really supercharge those much needed deep breaths.
Essentially, this is going to remind you to keep the peace, and peace is what this time of year is all about, right?
Breathe in, zennnnn. Breathe out, zennnn.
Keep a nugget in your pocket, under your pillow, or even in your hair or bra if that’s more your thing.
We’ve heard it all before – you can’t change what happens to you, you can only control how you react to it. And, well, good things seem to happen when you respond from a place of compassion and love rather than pissed-off-edness.
Easier said than done, but hey, that’s why you need a crystal! Talisman’s dude, folks have been using them forever for a reason.
So. Love. What you need is some powerful pink Rose Quartz. It attracts and promotes unconditional love, even in super tough siblings-are-annoying-you and someone-ate-the-last-slice circumstances.
Hold it tight, breathe deep, and voila. You’ll be smiling and responding with lovvvvvve.
Be prepared, this crystal can really work some mushy, kisskiss magic, so keep your eyes peeled for mistletoe.
This yellow crystal is a must have for so many reasons. Get. It.
Okay first off, it’s a money magnet. And let’s be honest, there’s a good chance your wallet is taking a beating this time of year.
Travels, drinks, food, drinks, gifts, drinks. It adds up! Use this to attract some good deals or surprise boosts in the ol’ cash department. Did I hear Christmas bonus?
If that’s not enough, citrine is also one happy crystal. It turns out yellow = happy, even in the hippie world. So keep it close to spread a little cheer and joy.
Peace, love, happiness and minimizing damage to your bank balance… what’s not to love about this these magic gems?!
