YOUR ROOT IS EVOLVING! CRYSTALS TO HELP YOU ADAPT + THRIVE

Your Root is Evolving: Crystals to Help You Adapt + Thrive / www.krista-mitchell.com

There was something I learned years ago when I was training as a healer: If the energy centre at your root (at the base of your spine) is out of balance, then everything else will end up out of balance, too.

This is because our root is the foundation of our health and well being.

Our physical health, yes, but also

  • Our livelihoods, our families, our community relations.
  • Ability to remain grounded, centered, empowered.
  • To be resilient, to endure.
  • To feel safe, secure, provided-for, and strong.

When our root is balanced, we feel confident, capable of handling challenges/stress/obstacles, and optimistic.

Our needs are met, and we feel solid in our place in the world.

But when it’s not balanced:

  • We can feel blocked, afraid, or struggling.
  • We have weak energy, are fatigued and un-grounded, and have compromised immune systems.
  • We can isolate and self-neglect, or overcompensate and look for safety, security, or provision in others.
  • Hoarding, recklessness, aggression, conflict, and defensive behaviour can take hold (and we’ve been seeing A LOT of that in recent history).

If the root energy centre continues to function out of balance, that imbalance vibrates up through our energy system and starts to throw off our other energy centres, too.

Crystal Healing for the Solstice: Beginnings & Endings

Crystal Healing for the Solstice: Beginnings and Endings / www.krista-mitchell.com

Can you feel the energy building?

It’s been building through this month, having increased in momentum after the new moon solar eclipse on the 14th.

Whether you’re in the northern or southern hemisphere a climax will be reached on the solstice: the darkest night or the longest day. A transition point. Cycles and patterns beginning and ending.

Cultures and faiths the world over have been celebrating this day since ancient times. And while you can apply any practices or notions, ceremonies or beliefs, based on where you come from and what you espouse, if you tune in to the energy and observe nature, there’s no denying the power of this day.

According to many ancient calendars the solstice was observed on the 25th day of December, and it marked the new year.

In the north, it marked the turning point where the sun, in its weakest phase, would be reborn and slowly begin to wax again. It heralded the promising return of light, life, and warmth.

In the south, it marked the height of the sun’s power and the zenith of life force – a time of magic and ceremony – before its power begins to wane.

While in times past I’ve looked forward to my solstice ceremonies and traditions with excitement, this year I feel more contemplative. I’m reflecting on what we’ve been through, and on all those who did not make it through 2020. I’m also reflecting on how we all responded – it was a mix of intense extremes.

While there are those who profited, I see this largely as a year of loss. But loss, in and of itself, is also a healing and growth process.

This is something the ancients have always understood: it’s all a part of the cycle of life.

Loss is an ending but also a beginning. It’s up to us to find what can be gained from losing.

How To Work With Alchemy Crystal For Transformation

Alchemy was the ancient predecessor of our modern science of chemistry, and was practiced in secret for thousands of years in ancient China, Egypt and Greece, right up to medieval France and England.In crystal healing the approach to alchemy is figurative, meaning turning lead (our wounds, shadow selves, illness) to gold (light, consciousness, health).When we do energy clearings with crystals, we are transmuting lower, harmful frequencies into higher frequencies of light and harmony.It’s a form of energy alchemy – as we heal and grow, we transform. Whether or not life is prolonged can be debated, but it is certainly enriched.If you’re looking to create significant change in your life, yourself, or your world, you can work with alchemy stones to help initiate or effect powerful inner and outer transformation.
Find out which crystals are the alchemy stones + how to work with them!
Eclipse season, which generally invites more change + upheaval, is capping off what has already been a dramatically challenging year.

But there’s no need to worry or fear, there are spiritual ways you can navigate this eclipse season with alignment and mastery.

In this video I guide you through a transformational crystal healing practice with quartz, labradorite, and smoky quartz, to help you attune to higher frequencies, come into alignment with divine cosmic energy, and walk your path of mastery with wisdom and grace.

Recommended Crystal Healing Practices for December

We’ve made it to the last month of 2020, but while the Decembers of years passed may have invited reflection and celebration, the vibe of this December feels more to me like one of continued uncertainty, exhaustion, and trepidatious curiosity of what 2021 may bring.

If it holds true that we are indeed in a holographic Universe, and that our thoughts, intentions, and energy are what help to co-create our reality, then how we are aligned and empowered matters more than ever.

The thing is, when it comes to shifting our energy during fraught or fearful times, we usually need some help. 

How do we stay connected with our light, and in alignment with our soul’s highest guidance + radiance in these times?

I’ve been guided to share the crystal practices and guidance below to help us do just that.

Creating Sacred Space

How’s the energy in your space

I’ve been thinking a lot about our spaces lately – in many ways they’ve become more important to us than ever, and a place where many of us are now spending most of our time (or not enough).

The space we live in is an energetic extension of ourselves. What affects us will affect the energy of our space (and vice versa).

In a time when we’ve seen a dramatic increase in fear, stress, uncertainty, and an outpouring of negativity, the more we can hold ourselves + our spaces sacred, the more we all benefit.

While we may all know the importance of clearing the energy of our space, it bears reminding, especially given that some may be feeling too overwhelmed or tired to prioritize it (it’s been my experience that this is when we most need to do it).

WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN YOU BREAK OR LOSE A CRYSTAL?

What Does it Mean When a Crystal is Lost or Broken? / www.krista-mitchell.com

I’m often asked if there’s a meaning behind losing or breaking a crystal.

Recently on a group call for my Pro Crystal Healer course, a student shared that she had lost the same crystal three times, and was wondering if there was any deeper meaning behind it.

It’s definitely possible!

I remember doing a crystal healing layout on myself years ago where I placed a piece of moldavite on my 3rd eye chakra. As I turned over to shut off the alarm at the end of my session, the moldavite fell off. First I searched on the bed beside me, then under the pillow. Nothing. I stripped the bed. Nothing. I pulled the bed away from the wall and checked underneath, including behind the sideboards. Nothing.

We moved a year later, and before we left the empty apartment, I searched for it one more time. Nothing.

True story!

I also remember the time when I first started working at a busy spiritual bookshop in NYC. I was wearing a lot of jet (a protective crystal for empaths), and I hadn’t learned how to shield my energy yet. Pieces of it would keep falling off me throughout the day, either cracking or breaking as they hit the floor, and I had a pretty good feeling as to why…

There can be many possible reasons or meanings behind lost or broken crystals. Sometimes it’s just an unfortunate circumstance – things get lost, accidents happen. But the Universe can work in mysterious ways, and messages or miracles can be hidden behind the circumstances…

Here’s a few possible interpretations, honor your own intuition or what resonates for you in a heart-based way (as opposed to fear-based):
