All About Sunshine: Crystals for Happiness + Positivity
These past few months have been a time filled with love, light, and laughter, all gifted to us by the thriving sun, shining bright in the summer sky. Sadly, the time has come to wash the sand off the tips of our toes and tuck away our personalized versions of the itsy-bitsy, teeny-tiny, yellow polka-dot bikini. As the sun sets on the final moments of summer, it’s hard not to be a bit nostalgic at the memories we’ve made and our desire to ooze every ounce of warm light that is left before retreating our homes and hibernating through the colder days. Even though we all might still be in a stage of denial that in a little over a month summer’s warm kiss will slowly fade away, fall is eagerly waiting with open arms to wrap us up in a cozy embrace. As we ride out the last wave of the summer, add these crystals for happiness and positivity into your space to hold the energy of the sun all year long—even as the seasons change!
The clock is ticking, so in the time we have left this sweet summer season, take the opportunity to soak in the sun’s rays and absorb the light that pours down and floods the Earth. If this past summer, you set goals for yourself and envisioned what the brighter days would have to offer, we encourage you to take the time to reminisce and reflect on those initial thoughts. Recall setting your intentions at the beginning of summer and refocus your goals moving into the new season. It is important to stay motivated as we transition into the latter half of the year so that we can continue the progress we’ve made in bettering ourselves. Remember, even with the absence of the sun, the light still remains by our side. These yellow crystals for happiness will fill your spirit with joy and high vibes until we see the summer sun again!
