Are You Feeling Stressed, Unfocused or Overwhelmed?

Are you Stressed? Agitated? Unfocused? Feeling Overwhelmed…? I just described myself in this moment. Tis the season to be calm, happy and in the flow!

Every year, I say a silent mantra, promising myself that I will overcome all past programming and chaotic belief systems. I promise myself that I will be in the energy frequency of zen and full-mindfulness.  I started off the month with the best of intentions, but now it’s the middle of December, and I seem to be a STRESS HEAD.  What exactly is a stress head? It is when you have checked out of your body and are living in your head. Sometimes, I don’t even feel like I am in my head. I am out of my body looking down at myself, spinning around in circles. LUCKILY, I have been on my spiritual journey long enough to know that sometimes that road leads to frustration and chaos.

I stop for a moment, breathe and walk to my Energy Muse collection of healing crystals. After looking at my jewelry, I decide on the best pieces for my current state. I put on my grounding anklet, Protection Wrap, Transformation Bracelet and Stress Free Wrap. I add a Malachite stone to my pocket and I sat down. My body starts to feel calmer, but my mind is saying, “What are you doing? You have a ton to do!! Hurry up, get up and get going!!”

I continue to sit and remember hearing a story about a respected yogi guru, who said it’s important to meditate each and everyday. Someone asked him, “What do you do if you’re really busy and you don’t have any time to meditate?” He responded, “Those are the days that you meditate for two hours.”

As I reflect back on that story, I chuckle to myself because it’s SO true. The illusion is that we get more done if we keep going, going, going—even if it’s in a chaotic state of being. However, this is all an illusion. As I continue to sit with the grounding energy of the Hematite, I feel myself landing back in my body. My energy body is now rooted in the Earth, instead of my head in the clouds. The Black Onyx in my Protection Wrap helps to stop the constant chatter in my head and the fears of not getting it all done fade away. I take another breath and the soothing energy of the Blue Lace Agate embraces me like an angel wrapping her wings around me. This feels good, this feels normal, and I begin to feel like me again. I find that holding a Malachite stone helps to restore balance between the right and left hemisphere of my brain. The energy of these healing crystals just gave me a reality check and energetically shared their wisdom with me…be still.

In the stillness resides the answers. I am now in my body. Tis the season to be calm, happy and in the flow.

Healer heal thyself.

    Yes… this is such a crazy time of year. With all of the holiday doings, I have found that my own energy hygiene routines have been tossed to the back burner and I’m really starting to feel it! Tell me more about how you use the crystals. Do you simply carry them around? Or do you have an intentional healing ritual that you use them for?

      Thanks for your comment Sara! There are many different ways that you can use your crystals! You can carry them around in your purse or pocket, meditate with them, place them in an alter-type setting, place them on your body or wear them in the form of jewelry. You just want to make sure that you set your intention and activate your crystals before you use them!
