Crystals for Adaption
Adapting in Life with Crystals
If there is one constant thing in life, it is change. Sometimes we cause the change such as buying a new house or having a baby. Other times, the change sneaks up on us when we least expect it. We may lose our job or our relationship may suddenly come to an end. Surprisingly, whether you chose to experience the changing environment or not, change can be difficult. Most people think that if you are choosing to move, you are ready for that change, but such is not always the case. When change comes we just be ready to adapt. If you have problems adapting to new situations or environments, we believe crystals can help you. They can make the process much easier, whether you asked for it or not. We suggest always have one of the following discussed crystals around in case an unexpected change comes into your life.
Turquoise is a blending of the cold winter blue ray of Trust with the approaching warm green ray of Growth. It is the color of the earth as the new growth and life emerges at the first hints of spring. It is a fresh color, a welcome color, and a color that moves us to serenity knowing that the cycle of life is progressing rapidly. Turquoise is the Color Ray of Discovery and the Color Ray of Balance. Its vibrations help you find yourself and return to equilibrium in your life and feelings. When your life is out of balance, whether from too much passion or not enough, or too much activity or not enough, or whatever the imbalance, turquoise rays can get you back to center again.
Turquoise Crystals for Balance
When attempting to adapt to new situations, we suggest using crystals in a darker turquoise color ray. Dark Turquoise crystals bring you adaptation, flexibility, openness, new perspective, and inner strength. All of these attributes are core to learning to adapt to new circumstances. In darker, richer tones, turquoise brings us a ray of considerable power. It is the color of flexibility.
Many of our shortcomings are based on intolerance. We get used to the way we think people should behave; the way the world should work. We grow more intolerant of new things as we age. Dark Turquoise rays are potent anti-intolerance rays that will give you the adaptability in your outlook to learn, enjoy, and participate in the newness that is constantly being brought to life.
Amazonite is a stone of tranquility, peace, and protection from the undesirable elements of life. It will keep negative energy away from you, making it one of the most protective stones you can own. Called the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth, Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one’s own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgment or confrontation with others to live in alignment with those beliefs and values.
It is also a wonderful healer for the emotional body. It soothes trauma and calms the mind, alleviates worry and fear, and directs anger and irritability into a more positive action. These are very important qualities when attempting to adapt to new situations. We need a calm mind that is free of anxiety and takes any negative feelings we feel from the change and help turn them into positive ones. Amazonite is deeply stimulating to both the Heart and Throat Chakras. The Heart Chakra, located near the center of the breastbone, regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist.
Chrysocolla is a strong dispeller of negative energy that brings a calming energy primarily to the heart. It is the stone of forgiveness, peace, and the strengthening of emotional bonds. It encourages compassion, and helps us recover our natural spontaneity. This stone’s calming effect helps with nervous disorders, such as anxiety and depression, and feelings of guilt. This is essential as fear of change is often brought about by anxiety. Both anxiety and depression can make adaptation near impossible.
Chrysocolla helps align the Heart Chakra, often easing emotional heartache and aiding you to find strength and balance. When the heart chakra is out of balance we may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become critical of the little foibles of others. We may find ourselves having inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday external stimuli. Chrysocolla can ease that stress and emotional response and make it easier for us to deal with change and learn to adapt to an ever moving life.

Life can move quickly and change as regularly as the tide. We cannot always prepare for these changes such as a change in job, a move to a new home, or an end of a relationship. Sometimes when we have prepared, we are still not ready for them. What we need to learn is adaptation or how to become adjusted to new conditions. When confronting change in your life or if you would like to prepare for unexpected ones in the future, we suggest using dark turquoise colored crystals. These crystals color rays bring you adaptation, flexibility, openness, new perspective, and inner strength. Which are all essential in adapting to new circumstances in life.
