Seasonal Affective Disorder Stones (S.A.D.)
Sunstone: Stone of Joy
Selenite: Stone of Cleansing
Carnelian: Stone of Vitality
Citrine: Stone of Success
Orange Calcite: Stone of Revitalization
Winter in Ohio gets me every year! I personally struggle with S.A.D., and these are my favorite crystals to work with during those cold times.
•How to incorporate into our everyday lives:
Simply having crystals in the space you occupy will bring about a feeling of their energy.
Carry all, some, or one of the Crystals with you (whichever crystals you feel is necessary for that day) in your pocket or purse. Pull them out to hold them whenever you need a little pick me up or momentary meditation.
Placing your crystals in a grid-like pattern can create a forcefield of energy that supercharges your healing stones to amp up their power. Smudge the room, make sure your gems are cleansed and charged and place your crystals in a geometrical grid (I suggest a Sunburst grid, which is simply setting 1 crystal as the center of the sun, and the remainder placed as the sun rays).
Place the crystals on your body to let the healing vibrations of the Crystal sink in and soothe the soul.
***Always remember crystals thrive off intention! It is important that you set the intention you are trying to achieve with the Crystal or crystals you are working with that day.
