Crystals for Inspiration
Inspirationâ€¦ itâ€™s such a beautiful thing when it strikes us. You donâ€™t have to be an artist, painter, musician, or writer to appreciate some inspiration finding its way to your life. If you look up the definition of inspiration you will find, â€œthe process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.â€ If there is one thing crystals are good at, it is stimulating us. The soothing vibrations and powerful color rays can inspire us to think, feel, and do. If you need to be motivated for a big talk at work, taking a risky leap, or confessing your love to someone, crystals that provide you with inspiration can help.
At the onset of the darkness of winter, the oranges and reds of autumn give way to the deeper winter tones of violet and blue. The skies are darker with less sunshine; the earth takes on the darker hue of winterâ€™s majesty. Like the sleepy, misty time of year that produces its rays, violet is the color ray of intuition, dreams, nobility, and luxury. As the color ray of influence that begins the cycle of life once again, violet is one of the most powerful rays in nature. Violet color rays are powerful aids in interpreting our dreams, inspiring us to great deeds and accomplishments, and putting the magic back in our lives and relationships.
Use Violet Crystals
Pure violet color rays are absolutely the best color choice for inspiration. It inspires awe, and invites a feeling of mystery and magic, reminiscent of the mystery and magic of lifeâ€™s rejuvenation and renewal. If you are a musician looking for inspiration, you will be happy to know that violet is the color of music; it stirs us, transforms us, and connects us in seemingly mysterious ways to our dreams, our past, and ourselves. Violet crystals also bring your Fire Energy. Fire energy is the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination and activity. It is Yang in nature. It is the energy of heat, action, emotion and passion- of ideas, of concepts, and sex. It is alive, potent, but often destructive. We all need the heat, passion, and life giving energy of the fire element. It is a powerful element that must be used in moderation.
