Crystals for Enlightenment
When looking to talk about enlightenment, I think it is first important to define it. Enlightenment can mean a lot of different things to different people, how they personally define it. Enlightenment can be defined as the action of enlightening or the state of being enlightened. If we go one step further we will see enlightened to mean: having or showing a rational, modern, and well-informed outlook. Basically, when one is enlightened they are wiser, open-minded, understanding, gain insight, are aware, and well-informed. If you are seeking to open your mind, gain understanding of things around you, and broaden your horizons, look no further, crystals can help!
When you’re looking to obtain enlightenment, the color of sunshine, happiness, and warmth, yellow, is where you should start. Yellow is the color of the coming of the sun and the warmth it brings. It is the color of the bright days of early summer, and as the sun high in the sky lights up the landscape, its yellow color ray brings us the power of enlightenment, lighting up the landscape of our search for knowledge. It is the color of the summer solstice ushering in the bright time of long days, warm temperatures, and sustained vigor.
