Mothers are amazing.
From teacher and caregiver to advocate, chauffeur and referee, a mother’s ability to juggle multiple schedules, tasks, and personalities is no small feat.
Luckily, today’s moms have a variety of options when it comes to replenishing their needs, staying balanced, and growing with their families. One such resource, healing crystals, are at the top of that list.
Much like the multi-talented, incredible moms they assist, gems and crystals come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes – each with special benefits.
Here are five of my top crystal benefits for moms, along with some crystal recommendations for each:
Crystal Benefit for Moms #1: Love. There is perhaps no greater characteristic that a mother needs or gives than love. From baby’s first boo-boo to teen squabbles to everything in between, love’s potent, powerful energy serves mom’s needs, too. When it comes to tapping into crystals for loving energy, Rose Quartz, Kunzite, and Morganite are classic choices.
Crystal Benefit for Moms #2: More Peace. If mom suffers from a busy mind, a cluttered home, or occasional overwhelming feelings, there are several crystals available to lend her some peace. Blue Calcite and Howlite work to calm energies, while Aventurine clears the mind during chaos or upheaval. On a related front, Hematite and Smoky Quartz are effective at releasing stagnancy and protecting against negative energies.
Crystal Benefit for Moms #3: Better Balance. Most people know how much today’s moms have on their plates. Given that, what better benefit than a few crystals to help even things out? To bring more equilibrium into one’s life, reach for Shiva Lingham and Mahogany Obsidian to ground and balance yin and yang energies. If emotional stability is lacking, Lepidolite, Lithium Quartz, and Sunstone are great bets.
Crystal Benefit for Moms #4: Patience. Whoever said, “Patience is a Virtue”, was definitely on to something; just ask any mom. Fortunately, today’s matriarchs can receive a helping hand in this department from several members of the crystal family. Dumortierite and Black Onyx, for example, enhance tolerance and self-restraint, while Picture Jasper and Pietersite help Mom rise above pettiness and obstacles.
Crystal Benefit for Moms #5: Strength. Whether chasing down a toddler or watching her first-born get married, most moms can benefit from added physical and emotional strength. Top picks for staying physically fit and in shape include Apatite, Tiger Iron, and Pyrite. For emotional strength and support, Ruby, Tiger Eye, and Sapphire make the grade.
Like the women they assist, crystals are multi-talented and amazing. They serve mothers in a variety of ways, from boosting love and peace to achieving balance, and building patience and strength.
