Crystal of the month

February is normally associated with Amethyst, as it is the Aquarians birth stone. For me February is the month of love. There are 2 crystals I associate with love. One is Rose Quartz and the other Malachite. For today I am going to focus on Rose Quartz. If you have never owned a crystal before this is the first one I would always recommend to people.

Back in 2008 I was on a second date and we had gone to a Psychic Evening. ( As you do!) There was a couple there selling crystals. I went up first and picked a piece of rough rose quartz crystal, I had no idea what it was but it looked pretty. Half an hour later my date showed me his rose quartz buddha that he had chosen. He hadn’t seen my crystal. I tok it home and slept with it on my bedside table. Sometimes I held it as I went to sleep. It sounds odd, but it felt like someone was giving me a gentle hug when I held it. At fairs I always describe Rose Quartz as a gentle hug for the soul.

It is effective in attracting love, romance and intimacy. So if you’re looking for love this February or feel as if you could do with a bit of self love, find a piece of rose quartz and keep it near you. Hold it or carry it in your pocket. Let me know how you get on!

Crystal Of the Month

January is a month for making New Year resolutions or abstaining from certain foods, drinks or behaviours.  This is why I have chosen Amethyst as crystal of the month. Purple in colour and the birthstone for Aquarians, this stone is an extremely useful one to have in your collection. It is personally one of my favourite go-to stones. So how can Amethyst help you in January? Well, if you have an addiction of any kind, Amethyst can help support you in kicking this, be it chocolate, alcohol or bad food. The Greeks used to drink out of Amethyst goblets, believing that if they drank wine out of them they wouldn’t get drunk. If you’re doing Dry January or Vegan January and trying to give something up, pop a piece of this in your pocket for the month.

Amethyst can also help enhance physical vitality and strengthen the immune system, very important after all the winter bugs! Amethyst is also said to help relieve insomnia so pop a piece under your pillow at night. Also if you suffer headaches it is said that placing a piece on your third eye chakra will help relieve this.

Let me know if you have used amethyst for any of the above and feel free to share your pictures of amethyst in the comments below. Thank you for reading and look out for crystal of the month in February..
