When you’re working for yourself, it can often feel like it’s you against the world, which is totally understandable! As solopreneurs, we have seemingly endless to-do lists and conflicting priorities. It is often overwhelming and isolating.
Humans are social creatures. We thrive when surrounded by people that understand us, care about us, and whom we care about in return. We aren’t meant to do anything in this life alone.
Finding your people is the ultimate act of self care for small business owners.
Here are 10 crystals to help you feel rejuvenated!
Carnelian for boosting energy and determination.
Carnelian is a beautiful red-orange stone that effectively boosts energy and vitality. This crystal is said to ignite your inner fire. It is used by many to help call upon their inner strength and remember their self-worth.
Carnelian is a great stone for creative people. It can be used to remove blocks that leave us feeling burnt out, uninspired, and stuck. Simply looking at its vibrant color stimulates passion, motivation, confidence, and joy.
This highly rejuvenating crystal has the power to improve our natural drive, raise positive vibrations, unblock energy, and lift our spirits in a way that makes us feel alive, present, and alert.
Carnelian not only awakens but also boosts our determination to get things done without feeling pressured or stressed. It allows us to naturally feel passionate about every new day and motivated by every step we take towards our goals, rather than having to force ourselves.
Bloodstone for energy and strength.
This powerful healing stone purifies and detoxifies the body, cleansing your body’s energy. It increases energy and strength, promoting a constant flow of energy throughout the body.
Bloodstone is a powerful energizer, and having it around can help you stay motivated as you work toward your goals. If you've hit a personal or professional roadblock and need to get back on track, this is the gemstone for you. Place it on your workspace or at-home altar to increase your drive and sense of enthusiasm.
Bloodstone is the perfect choice if you frequently feel low, drained, and burdened by everyday responsibilities. This is a stone of revitalization, which helps awaken our life force and push us forward every day.
It is a great stone to have when starting a new project or changing life circumstances that you know will take a lot of energy, such as moving or getting a new job.
Bloodstone improves our physical and emotional capacity and makes us feel invigorated, helping us get up, start something, work, and get things done without feeling exhausted at the end of the day.
Rainbow Moonstone for growth and openness to new opportunities.
Rainbow moonstone is a transformational stone that allows you to reset yourself, achieve mental clarity, and grow anew.
Just like the cycle of the moon, the changing energy of this crystal creates new opportunities each month. Relish in its strength and rid yourself of the stress and anxiety holding you down.
If you’re having trouble during transitional periods, a rainbow moonstone is exactly what you need to bring out the best of life’s changes.
Dalmatian Jasper for increasing your energy and positivity.
Dalmatian jasper stones are light-hearted, playful stones that connect us to our inner child and dispel resentment. All of us could use a stone that promotes loving energy and positive attitudes.
Dalmatian jasper brings about childlike energy and inner joy, perfect for strengthening the positive relationships around you.
Celestite for reflection and restful sleep.
Celestite crystals are divine gemstones full of cosmic energy - ideal for meditation, mindfulness, and prayer. They are perfect for private spaces which encourage quiet reflection and spiritual growth.
Celestite crystals should be charged with either sun or moon energies. Sun-charged celestite encourages life-affirming energy, while lunar celestite will bring about heightened intuition.
This stone's heavenly blue color can help drum up the kind of peace and happiness we get when looking up at the sky on a clear day. It's an ideal crystal to place in your bedroom to bring tranquillity and a harmonious energy field and encourage restful sleep.
Combining the divine celestite healing properties with meditation practices allows for better recognition of what you have control over. Celestite crystals grant you the courage and wisdom needed for continual growth.
Aventurine for dissolving negative feelings and calming irritation.
Green aventurine is a gem of good fortune, new beginnings, and alternative possibilities. It attracts prosperity, enhances creativity, and dissolves negative feelings, so it’s a great stone for calming irritation and working through the inevitable kinks of new ventures.
Aventurine can help you to overcome feelings of self-doubt and feel more optimistic since, like rose quartz, it's thought to open the energy of the heart. The next time you're feeling anger and frustration bubble up in your chest, take a few deep breaths with aventurine in your hand to calm down.
Selenite for harmony and and absorbing negative energy.
Selenite crystals are thought to absorb negative energy and they are commonly used for protection. This crystal is said to bring protection, harmony, and soul healing to your body, mind, and home.
Selenite can also be an amazing stone for shifting through energy blocks, bringing peace and purity to one’s head and heart, and generally just ensuring that you stay protected and connected to the world around you.
If there were an ultimate starter crystal set, selenite would be included—and for a good reason (in fact, that's why include it in my Altar Starter Bundle).
Selenite is like liquid light. Be sure to keep it out during the full moon, as this powerful lunar energy is thought to be cleansing and charging for crystals of all types.
Kunzite for managing stress and grounding.
When you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed, Kunzite can help your thoughts turn more positive and help you find peace.
Kunzite helps to cleanse your aura, expand your heart, and heal old wounds from past relationships. Reach for this one if you need harmony and flow in life.
Kunzite is great for facilitating calmness and a sense of grounding—which is kind of the exact kind of support we all need right now.
Tourmalinated Quartz for combating negative thoughts and increasing energy.
These lovely and unusual black crystals combine the healing properties of the Quartz Crystal and the Black Tourmaline. Tourmalinated Quartz is clear crystal quartz that has grown together with black tourmaline and shows strands of the tourmaline running through it.
Tourmalinated quartz is believed to protect the wearer from negative thoughts and emotions.
When healing is needed and negative thoughts must be brushed away, clear crystal quartz and black tourmaline crystals are here to support you.
Tourmaline purifies one's own energies and protects from negativity, while quartz amplifies.
Chrysocolla for patience and flexibility.
This solid light blue to blue green stone has a very gentle, soothing, friendly energy. It is considered the “wise stone” or “sage stone“, as it offers up its wisdom and sagely advice to those who pay attention.
Use this stone for allowing what you need into your life. It helps us to be flexible, self-forgiving, and patient. It keeps one in light, love, and healing on a daily basis.
