Ahh, another late evening blurring into early morning. Is anyone else creeping closer and closer to nocturnal hours these days? My natural sleep schedule seems to prefer 3am to 12pm as hibernation time, though I try to set my alarm for 11:11am as it makes me feel lucky. As I ponder whether to attempt to go to sleep soon, I find myself feeling drawn to hold a piece of selenite. I think this crystal has a Sunday night message for us all, as it can be particularly helpful during these trying times. Let’s reflect on the magical meaning of selenite!Continue reading

Are you sensitive? (it’s ok)
As a Pisces with a Cancer moon I feel highly qualified to tell you about being sensitive. Are you a sensitive person too? Are you always in your feels? It’s not always easy being someone who feels their feelings so intensely. Being super in touch with your emotions can sometimes make your everyday life a bit taxing, am I right? Let’s talk about how we can navigate this.
How to actually use crystals
You might have heard crystals can bring you an unlimited source of good vibes. You might be hearing all about how crystals can help you reduce stress, cope with depression, or just improve your overall quality of life. But you might also be wondering, how the heck do you actually use these things? How do we tap into the infinite benefits supposedly enclosed in these shiny little guys?
Well wonder no more, because I’m totally here to help you through this. I’ve made a list of my top five favorite ways to use crystals. These tips will work with literally any kind of crystal, so feel free to experiment! If you’re new to crystals, go and pick one out! Seriously, just try listening to your first instinct and take home the one that first grabs your attention. (Unless that’s the $3,500 geode in the window that you’ll need to open a new credit card for, in which case, maybe work up to that eventually.)
Now that you have a sparkly new friend, keep one really important thing in mind! Ultimately, a crystal’s true meaning is what it means to you. This can be as life-altering or as lighthearted as you care to think of it. Aside from all the folklore and fabled magical properties, the true power of a crystal is that it triggers an association in your mind with the characteristics it represents. It is a tangible reminder of what you’re choosing to invite more of into your life. You can hold it and behold it, you can see it and believe in it. But ultimately the qualities being brought to the surface are qualities already in you. Sometimes you just need to make things feel a little more magical to see it.
