2021 is a new year, that's for sure. We are all looking forward to positive change, at least that is our hope. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to throw every affirmation and woo woo trick I know at 2021 -- because I don't want a repeat of this past year. Don't get me wrong, there were some positives that came out of 2020, like the time I was fortunate enough to spend with all three of my sons. That time was precious and for those months with them, I will always be grateful.
All of that said, we still need some healing strategies in our toolbox, and one of my favorite healing practices has always been to study and work with crystals. Two of the stones I hold most dear are Rose Quartz and Amethyst. I'll tell you why...
• It is known as a stone of pure love
• It is said to promote compassion and kindness
• It also promotes mutual understanding
• Rose Quartz is also believed to promote feelings of peace and calm
• It is said to open the heart chakra for promotion of a deep feeling of love
• It is known to be the balancer of negative energy, replacing it with positive energy.
It is also simply a beautiful light pink stone.
I can't think of a better gift to give someone in 2021 than a gift of healing positive energy. While you can wear jewelry with Rose Quartz, I like to simply keep a stone on my work desk that I can hold as I'm thinking through my day or when I am feeling stressed. I like to just have it around me.
The next stone I love to keep around me is Amethyst. Here are some properties of Amethyst that I find comforting:
• It activates spiritual awareness
• promotes healing
• is said to restore balance
• is known as a stone of positive transformation
If you are on a new journey, Amethyst is the stone you are looking for in your life. A friend once gave me an Amethyst stone and I have kept it alongside my Rose Quartz on my studio desk for the last six years that Second Spring Naturals has been in business. I consider my studio a happy place that is full of good vibes for me as the start of this business was a sort of renewal period in my life; so, it is only fitting to include these crystals I have come to love in the space around me. I have always believed that you need to surround yourself with good energy and I want all the good energy I can drum up to be infused into the soaps and creams that are manufactured in my studio.
We are including these two crystals in our healing gift sets this winter. Watch for them in our gift set section.
