Overcoming Pessimism


Seeing the Sun Through the Clouds

Some people are not familiar with the idea of optimism and pessimism. It is often represented by a half glass full of water. If asked how much water is in the cup and you respond it is half full, you are considered optimistic, whereas if you answer it is half empty, you are considered a pessimist. Of course, these actual personality traits go much deeper. A pessimistic person may not want to be that way. While some people like it and will say they are being realist, others are jealous of the optimistic person’s way of always being able to see the rainbow beyond the storm. If you are a pessimistic person, always expecting the bad to happen or never being able to find hope in desperate situations, but you want to change, we believe crystals can help. Healing crystals have powerful energy that can not only remove and repel negative energy, but also bring you positive and optimistic vibrations.

The vibrant mix of the enlightenment of pure yellow and the joyfulness of orange produces the king of colors: gold. Gold is traditionally the color of kings, riches, and the sun. It is all this and more. It is as close to a magical color as exists. It seems to touch a deep part of our minds, conjuring up images of mystical places, treasure, and adventure. We instinctively seek this color. It makes us feel rich, secure, and successful. It is the color of many symbols of power and wealth. Gold is the color of adventure, success, and power. It is is the color of the earth fully alive in midsummer. It is the ray of rarity, bespeaking richness and natural value. It enriches the spirit, warms us like yellow, and cheers us like orange.

Golden Crystals Bring You Success, Enthusiasm, Happiness, and Power

Gold is the high color, the crown of life. It is all life, sweet, warm—growing, and reaching its peak. It is brilliant, sometimes blinding, but always tinged with awe and inspiration. Gold is exuberance. Pale gold crystals, like spun flax, offer us the power of toned-down exuberance  – they are the crystals of happiness, cheerfulness, and contentment. Crystals that possess the light gold color ray provide us with the pleasure life can offer in simple things. This is a big part of being able to be optimistic about life and its various obstacles and situations.

Apatite is a stone that helps us seek balance and flexibility. It is a stone often used by crystal healers for issues associated with bone and teeth problems. It is a stone of balance and restoration after emotional trauma. Golden Apatite brings success, enthusiasm, happiness, and power. Golden Apatite brings us the vibration of mental clarity, strength of will, and manifestation. It brings a sunny, spiritual energy to the aura, inspiring hope and passion for life, and instilling a sense of self-worth and self-confidence. Golden Apatite is a positive crystal, instilling hope and optimism. It releases old blockages that may limit one’s acceptance of prosperity or abundance and overcomes fear of success.

As ancient as the moon itself, Moonstone holds the power of mystery. Its secrets are locked beneath a pearly veil, and with them, our own hidden truths. Only within its reflected light can we begin to understand what it has to teach us. Moonstone is foremost a talisman of the inward journey, taking one deep into the self to retrieve what is missing, the parts of the soul left behind or forgotten, then brought to light. Golden Moonstone signified hope to ancient man. Because of this uplifting quality it was a popular talisman or amulet for enhancing the personality. Moonstone is a powerful Barrier Filter. Barrier crystals have incredible abilities to help us focus and amplify our efforts to keep undesirable elements out of our lives. Crystals with the earth power of a Filter, absorb positive energy flow but work to keep negative energy away from us. They help us view the world in a “glass half full” outlook, to see the best in others, the beauty in life, and the good in humanity. This makes it a wonderful crystal to overcome pessimism.
