Crystals For Personal Growth
We all strive to become better people in our lives. As we get older the issues we have with ourselves start to become clearer. Instead of getting down on ourselves, we need to work on one thing: growth. Personal growth is a vital part of life and ourselves as people. We must grow and learn in order to expand our minds and emotional capacities. This isnâ€™t an easy task though. Personal growth can be hard and painful. We may not know where to begin or we may feel like we need support so we donâ€™t have to go at it alone. If you are ready to work on growing as a person, we suggest the support needed from the power of crystals.
It is the vibrant hues of violet that can begin to open up your awakening of personal growth. 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.
Use Violet Crystals
As the color ray of influence that begins the cycle of life once again, violet is one of the most powerful rays in nature. It inspires awe, and invites a feeling of mystery and magic, reminiscent of the mystery and magic of lifeâ€™s rejuvenation and renewal. 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. It is an important color for following your heart and having these inspiration for the personal growth you need.
Ametrine is a wonderful talisman for use in the creative arts. If you paint, draw, sculpt, write, or create in any way, keep a nice ametrine crystal or crystal cluster in the area to focus and amplify the creative elements of the Universal Life Force. Ametrine is also a well-known healer that has profound effects in balancing the crown chakra. If you are feeling out of sorts, blocked, and mentally clumsy, try a short session with an ametrine, you will likely find yourself refreshed, alert, and back in control. Spend time meditating with ametrine over your crown chakra to clear your head and focus on personal growth. Think about the part of yourself youâ€™d like to work on while you are meditating.
Stichtite is a dream stone. It is used to interpret dreams. To use it for this purpose, it should be place under your pillow at night or near your bed to capture the dream essence. Then upon awakening, hold the stone on your forehead for several minutes until the dream and its meaning reenter your mind. Stichtite is also a Seeker Builder Crystal. Seeker Builders are talismans used when the desire is to find a way to transform a part of oneâ€™s life to a more desirable state. Seekers are used when we need some help to find a new path, a new approach, or in any quest to gain that which we desire but do not yet possess. When they possess the Earth Power of the Builder, they have the power to aid us to grow new relationships. This is especially important when we seek to find something within ourselves and work on it. The relationship you grow can be within yourself.
Ametrine is a very popular and effective meditation crystal. Ametrine helps you visualize new ideas, helps you solidify ideas into reality, and helps your mind focus on its internal creative powers.
We suggest you use Stichtite for its Fire Energy by placing one in the South area of your room or home. Not only are they incredibly beautiful, but they bring the Fire Energy to a room that is so essential to good health.
