Top Crystals for the New Year of 2019

By Siobhan Gouws from SGCrystalHealing

Top Crystals for New Year 2019

Today I share my top crystals for the new year of 2019, because it’s here folks! 2019 is approaching quickly!

These are by no means the only crystals you should use. My TOP crystal for anything under the sun is whatever crystal you are attracted to RIGHT NOW. These are solely the crystals that came through during meditation and how I think they’ll be helpful.

Green Tourmaline to heal the heart and overcome any challenges of the heart. Let your heart lead the way! Green Tourmaline is also known to bring abundance, creativity, success and aid with visualization.

Angel Aura Quartz to remind you that you are never alone. You are supported in ways you cannot even imagine. You ARE divine and part of this Universal picture. Don’t forget that!

Citrine because it’s time to start believing in yourself now. Light yourself up and start tending to your confidence fire.

Dalmation Jasper to keep calm, stop lashing out and reacting. Take a breath first. This is a crystal that is calming and helps dissolve negativity.

Blue Kyanite to let your words fly, but remember to maintain balance. It was Kimberlei Ann from Spiritual ReSOULutions that came time mind and something that she wrote about: “It’s about balance. Constantly speaking and spreading negativity (if that’s the ‘truth’ you are speaking) is no good for anyone. Balance out some of that by saying something nice now and again because words have some serious power.” So, speak your truth, but if you only have hurt to share continually, then grab your Dalmation Jasper instead 😉

The last thing I want to share is about Connection. For 2019, it’s time to come out of the cave and start getting out there to make connections. Start chatting, stop hiding and connect. You never know who you will meet and what love you’ll encounter.

Creative Crystal Connecting,
Siobhan

TRAILBLAZER: CRYSTALS + AKASHIC GUIDANCE FOR THE NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE 2019

By Krista Mitchell

New year, new paradigm.

In keeping with the themes of this new year and new moon, I’m approaching these posts in a new way: from an Akashic perspective (as opposed to astrological), and providing soul-based crystal suggestions.

Interestingly enough, what came through my Akashic guides resonated strongly with astrological reports for this new moon solar eclipse in Capricorn, so there’s proof of the divine design, for you!

I’m really excited for this new moon and for the paradigm shift it engenders, as after 2018 I’m so ready to do things in a new way, to strike further than I have before, and make all that good change last.

New Moon / Solar Eclipse January 5

Dear All,

Happy New Year!! Hope you have already planted some seeds! And if not — it is not too late — the upcoming New Moon in Capricorn opens an amazing energetic doorway for new beginnings!

New Moon in Capricorn / Solar Eclipse in Capricorn happens exactly at 8:29pm EST on Saturday, January 5th. It happens between Saturn and Pluto and connects with Neptune, emphasizing the following:
  • wise decision making
  • learning from the past to transform the future
  • being pragmatic while following your dreams
  • balancing methodical approach with intuitive guidance
  • achieving deep understanding from spiritual learning
And of course, all this while opening the doors for new beginnings. The window for this is quite wide — all day Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
Additional astro alignments involving Mercury, Uranus, Venus and Chiron are accentuating expanded thinking, expanded consciousness, enlightening revelations, healing through beauty, art, spirituality, mentorship and supportive relationships . . .
Crystals to use during this time are Pink Tourmaline, Green Aventurine, Red Jasper, Carnelian, Mahogany Obsidian, Black Obsidian, Herkimer Diamond, Phenacite, Moldavite . . . This obviously not all at once at the same time but as you feel guided, up to 3 different stones at most if you are a crystal beginner, and not while driving . . . Remember that crystals can powerfully move your energies so if you are working with a crystal that is new to you, make sure to do it first at home, for a short period of time.
And if you are a newbie in the crystal world, I recommend listening to myjust released podcast HERE
Even if you already know a lot about crystals, you might find it useful. We are scheduling the time for another one that will be more advanced — if you would like me to address specific topics not covered in this one — send me an email and let me know 🙂 🙂
And now a list of events that I have going on this month for those who are local (Hampton Roads, Virginia):
~New Year — New Moon Meditation
Monday, January 7th, 8pm Cadefit
~Chakras Workshop Series, Introduction and Chakra Assessment
Thursday, January 10th, 8pm Cadefit
~Healing Yourself: Where Science Meets Spirit Workshop
~Energy Healing 101
Sunday, January 27th, 1:30pm Body Balance Studio LLC
Hope to see you there!
Till then,
Stay happy and healthy!

Start the New Year with Some Crystal Healing!

By Krista Mitchell

Happy New Year!

In celebration of today’s launch of my second book Crystal Reiki (a #1 new release in energy healing on Amazon!), I’m sharing a few crystal healing protocols from the book to help you start your year off in a healthy, loving, and magical way!

Here are three crystal healing sessions you can give yourself, depending on your needs.

Lie down, place your crystals, and sink into the vibes anywhere from 25 – 45 minutes. Don’t forget to clear your energy first, and have a blanket on hand in case you get cold!

Detox protocol:

  • Galena or smoky quartz placed at the feet will help to draw out toxins
  • Place red calcite at the root chakra for overall detox of the body
  • Charoite on the liver and gold rutilated quartz on the kidneys will help to purge toxins from those organs

Self-Love / Self-Worth protocol:

  • Place rhodochrosite, rose quartz, and rhodonite on the heart chakra for heart healing, compassion, courage, and pure love energy
  • Ruby on the root chakra for empowered self-leadership, grounding, passion, strength and confidence
  • You can also hold rose quartz in both hands

Manifestation

  • Hold epidote in your receptive hand and clear topaz in your dominant hand (you can sub in quartz points if you don’t have these crystals)
  • Pyrite on the solar plexus
  • Blue apatite on the throat chakra
  • Optical calcite on the 3rd eye chakra
  • Spend time during your healing session visualizing, affirming out loud, and emotionally connecting to your dreams and desires for this year.

SOLSTICE JOURNEY + CRYSTAL MAGIC!

By Krista Mitchell

Solstice-magic / krista-mitchell.com

HAPPY SOLSTICE!

For those who keep the olde ways in the northern hemisphere, while the winter solstice (Yule) marks the longest night of the year, it also heralds the dawn of a new one.

The Oak King will triumph over the Holly King. The sun will grow stronger. Warmth and life will slowly return to the land.

It is a time of wish magic, setting intentions and divination work for the coming year.

Conversely, in the southern hemisphere, the summer solstice (Litha) marks the longest day of the year.

It is a time of fairy magic, manifestation, and celebrating the abundant splendors of the earth, before the sun begins to wane.

Here are some crystal suggestions for this magical day. You can wear them to tune into the energy of these magical days, and to enhance any of your manifestation, healing, ritual, or spiritual workings.

I’ve also included TWO FREE SPIRIT JOURNEYS below that you can do on solstice day as part of your magical ritual!

Winter Solstice + the Full Moon => A Potent Combination

Dear all,
For the first time since 2010 and for the last time until 2094 we’ll have the Full Moon coinciding with the Winter Solstice!
The exact peak of the Full Moon is several hours after the exact moment of the Solstice but with the Full Moon energies active a day before a day of and a day after the actual peak — this is quite significant!
So the Winter Solstice on Friday happens at 5:23 pm EST, when Sun enters Capricorn.
Traditionally, this was a time of celebration, feasting and gift-giving — and with Christmas, it still is.
Energetically, however, the specific alignment of Sun and Moon signals that this is a timeto turn inward and start slowing down and unwinding.
The Earth Energy of Sun in Capricorn combines harmoniously with the strong Water Energy of the Full Moon to guide our bodies to downshift and start to relax.
One of the best qualities of the energy of this Full Moon due to its harmonious connection to Uranus is that it can help us see more clearly what we feel, what we need, and what we have outgrown. And then it can assist us with breaking those habits related to things we have outgrown more easily than at other times, if we so wish.
It may also bring you new information, new insights, new perspective, or new people who might help you in some way or to whom you will offer help.
Additionally, both Friday and Saturday are great for any creative pursuits, learning and spiritual immersion or even just dreaming them up.
So what can you do to further amplify the effect of energy in your life?
First, you may want to enjoy “wishing upon a start” as this weekend there will be a peak of the Ursid Meteor Shower. Last night California experienced an amazing one, captured on social media. To do that, hold or carry your Tektite or Moldavite while looking at the night sky and then see what shows up in your dreams.
Next, start making a list of habits that you know you want to change, and see which one is the easiest to change starting Saturday. You can use Moldavite while doing this.
Then, to connect to your creativity and bring more of it into your life, wear or carry with you Friday and Saturday Picture Jasper, Crazy Lace Agate (that’s actually a real name 🙂 ), Rainbow Obsidian, Chrysocolla or Opal.
Have beautiful holidays! May all kinds of blessings come your way!

OPENING THE ROAD: A CRYSTAL FIRE RITUAL

By Krista Mitchell

Crystal Fire Ritual / krista-mitchell.com

What are you ready to let go?

As we near the end of the calendar year, this is a big and important question.

Why?

Because no matter how this past year went for you (stellar, some hits / some misses, total clunker), this next year represents an opportunity to go bigger and better, achieve more goals, or have a fresh start.

And while many of us focus on what we intend to attract, create or achieve in the new year, not as many contemplate what they’re willing to release in order to create space for their dreams, opening the road to success.

So far in this year-end series we’ve cut cords to past relationships, and unblocked our inner resistance to positive change. Now, we’re ready to release what’s inside that no longer serves, and open the road.

Why This New Moon Is a Game Changer!

Labradorite
You may not feel it yet, due to the challenging aspects that the Sun is making to Mars and Neptune, lowering levels of personal energy — but let me assure you — this New Moon is truly  something special!

For the first time in 12 years it is coming up in Sagittarius together with the ruler of Sagittarius, whose keywords are luck,
optimism, new opportunities, growth, learning, expansion,
far-away places, travel!

New Moon opens up the energy for new beginnings so starting Friday and till the end of the month, you may feel this
“new life” Fire energy starting to build.
Don’t let the temporary dive of Mars and Neptune into the
oceanic depths mislead you into believing otherwise. They will try — but only so that you can test your faith, your belief in unseen magical world of goodness that is waiting for you.

This is the real test of faith — and another keyword for the
energy of this New Moon — to believe in the
greater meaning and the bigger picture, even when — and especially when — you can not yet see them. Remember that the New Moon actually means Dark Moon — if you look at the sky there is no evidence still that the Moon even exists. And
yet, it is there, ready to grow.

So if you can have that kind of trust on Friday and this
weekend — write out your biggest dreams relating to any of the keywords listed above while looking at the candle flame, to emphasize the Fire Element and then meditate with 
Orange Calcite, Citrine, Imperial Topaz or Labradorite.
Buy a new notebook and write them all out! Go big, play with
it, you have nothing to lose!

And to go even bigger and solve some of your more persistent
questions about your life’s journey — check out the 
Astro-Archetypes New Year Workshop — offered in
Williamsburg, VA on December 29th in collaboration with
Kathy Eckhardt — all other details are here: 
https://crystalcosmopolitan.com/astro-archetypes-new-year-workshop/

[BTW — IF you have already sent me an email
registering for the workshop and did not receive my reply —
remember that Mercury is still retrograde, so please send again! I always reply and if I didn’t — that means I did not get it!]

As you see, understand, feel and expand your energy through
playing with your Astro-Archetypes in the unique ways that
we’ll do it, you will begin to notice how easily a new path
starts forming in front of you, leading you to places
you’ve always longed for . . . 
Let the magic of transformations begin!

Till then,Stay happy and healthy!

A Little Yuletide Crystal Magic

by Krista Mitchell from KristaMitchell.com

 We're moving into a potent phase of intention setting and manifestation magic from the 25th to the 6th (the original 12 days of Yuletide or Christmas), when our thoughts and hopes will look to a fresh start at the new year.

We’re moving into a potent phase of intention setting and manifestation magic from the 25th to the 6th (the original 12 days of Yuletide or Christmas), when our thoughts and hopes will look to a fresh start at the new year.

YULETIDE BLESSINGS & SEASON’S GREETINGS!

We’ve made it through the darkest time, and longest night, of the year. 
Slowly but surely the sun will begin to wax, and while they still feel far away, the warm days will come again.

We’re moving into a potent phase of intention setting and manifestation magic from the 25th to the 6th (the original 12 days of Yuletide or Christmas), when our thoughts and hopes will look to a fresh start at the new year.

According to the ancient Celtic and Druidic calendars, the month of Birch begins today. The birch tree symbolizes new beginnings, rebirth, and resurrection. In the runic language of the old Norse, it symbolizes fertilityhealingprosperity, and the feminine mysteries. 
 

A LITTLE YULETIDE CRYSTAL MAGIC

To consciously welcome in the magic, healing, and blessings this time brings:

  1. Place a candle in your window at twilight, the magical “between and betwixt time” revered by the Druids. (An LED candle is fine, safety first!)
  2. Using your saliva (or a sacred oil) and your index finger, draw the runic Berkana symbol (meaning “birch”, pictured above) on your window.
  3. Hold a piece of quartz and whisper your desires for healing, renewal, fertility or prosperity into the quartz.
  4. Leave the quartz beside your candle throughout the night, symbolizing the light of your dreams blazing through the darkness.
  5. Keep the quartz with you, place it on your altar, or bury it in your garden after the Spring thaw.

MAY MAGIC, HEALING, LOVE AND HOPE BLESS YOU AND YOURS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

WARMEST WISHES,
KRISTA
