Crystals For Dealing With Stress
Stress is something we have to deal with on a daily basis. Studies have shown that the stress we are under as increased as a whole in our society. We are busier, work more, and are generally more stressed out than ever before. When we feel overwhelmed in work or home life, it can easily spill over, leaving us feeling tense even doing the most menial of tasks. While there are many stress management steps you can take such as adding daily meditation to your life, one idea is often missed; adding crystals to your life. Carrying one around, wearing one, or especially meditating with one can all reduce the stress in your life. Crystals can help us feel less tense, less overwhelmed, and more able to focus on the important tasks in front of us. We often get ahead of ourselves, thinking too much of the future rather than living in the present. It is amazing the focus that crystals will bring on the present in your life. They help you slow down and appreciate the smaller things in life, rather than focusing on stress inducing problems, tasks, or emotions.
When attempting to deal with or reduce the stress in your life, we recommend the balancing and centering rays of Turquoise crystals. 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.

Turquoise colored crystals have a wide variety of uses. They temper excesses, restore calm after a storm, relieve stress, neutralize extremes, and provide a counter to tendencies to fly off in a single direction. They help you overcome conflict, and deal with rage. They moderate aggressiveness and help you deal with cruelty. The turquoise colored crystals help you relax, rewind, and build tolerance. When you seek to reestablish your equilibrium and get your emotions under control, use a turquoise colored crystal.
A unique and beautiful crystal that is perfect for reducing stress in your life is the translucent turquoise rays of Aqua Aura.

Turquoise colored crystals come in various shades, both lighter and darker. However, no crystal is as true to the color rays as the one that takes its name.

Turquoise enhances the ability to see all aspects of ourselves, good and bad, and to integrate these aspects into a cohesive whole. While it is tempting to try and rid ourselves of the traits of self that are not entirely enlightened, Turquoise, like an ancient Grandfather ally, reminds us that all experiences are valid and that mistakes are simply another experience. Wholeness can only come when we are willing to embrace all of who we are and what we have learned.
