Velvet’s contributing wellbeing editor Caroline S. Asante explains how to harness the power of crystals, to bring tranquillity and balance to your home, accompany you on your travels, and help achieve better mental clarity when working from home
Ah, at last, summer has graced us with its presence, bringing forth an abundance of magnificent trees, blooming flowers, and the delightful buzz of wildlife. As a dedicated enthusiast of crystal healing and a firm believer in the extraordinary power of natural remedies, I find myself eagerly anticipating the boundless opportunities this summer season holds for emotional healing and overall wellbeing.
Crystals have always held a special place in my heart, enchanting me with their captivating energy and the unique properties that they possess. Their alluring qualities have drawn me in throughout my life, continuously guiding me towards a deeper understanding and connection with their transformative potential.
Summer is a season of warmth, adventure, and growth, and there are specific crystals that can enhance these experiences and uplift your spirit. Here are the top five crystals for summer that will bring a boost of energy and enhance your overall wellbeing:
As the name suggests, Sunstone captures the essence of the sun. This crystal radiates vibrant energy, uplifting your mood, and boosting your confidence. It brings warmth, joy, and vitality, making it perfect for embracing the sunny days of summer.
Citrine is like a ray of sunshine in crystal form. Its golden hue exudes positivity, abundance, and optimism. This crystal can help you manifest your desires, attract success, and create a joyful mindset, making it an ideal companion for a summer filled with positivity.
Just as the crystal-clear waters of the ocean sparkle under the summer sun, Aquamarine brings a sense of calm and tranquillity. It has a soothing energy that helps reduce stress and promotes emotional healing. Aquamarine also enhances communication and supports clear self-expression, enabling you to navigate summer adventures with ease.
Aventurine is often referred to as the ‘stone of opportunity’. Its vibrant green colour aligns perfectly with the lushness of nature during the summer season. Aventurine invites abundance, good luck, and prosperity into your life. It also nurtures your heart, promoting emotional wellbeing and harmonious relationships.
Known as the ‘stone of motivation’, Carnelian is a fiery crystal that ignites passion, courage, and determination. It boosts your energy levels, making it an excellent choice for pursuing new goals and embracing summer adventures. Carnelian also enhances creativity and self-confidence, helping you express your true self with enthusiasm.
When you get your summer crystals in hand, incorporate them into your daily rituals and practices. I find carrying a crystal with me throughout the day serves as a constant reminder of my intentions and goals. I often slip a Citrine or Rose Quartz crystal into my pocket, feeling their energy radiating against my skin as I navigate the world. It’s like having a personal cheerleader at your side! Wishing you a happy and prosperous summer and see you in September.
