The Sun: Turn on Your Inner Light

Heather Askinosie|August 29, 2021

People ask me, how do I get my life back in order? What's the fastest way I can shift? One of the tips I always give them is to wake up at sunrise to watch the sun come up and watch the sun set at night for 5 days to reset your energy. There's something about these two simple acts that gets you back into alignment by harnessing the power of the cycle of the sun and the rhythm of the Earth. It allows you to connect with the radiant light of the Sun, which helps to burn off what no longer serves you and activates your inner light. 

And that's why I created the Sun necklace and bracelet. It helps you to align with the energy of the sun. Why does that even matter? The Sun is there every day for us; it's unconditional and let's us know we can start anew daily. It's a rebirth. It's a burning up of your energy. It's a momentum of change. It's a momentum of purification. And bigger than anything for me right now, it's a touchpoint to remind me to turn on my inner light. Imagine you have a gauge in the middle of your chest that controls how bright you shine; the Sun piece helps you turn that dial ever brighter. It has this energy to help you rediscover your mojo and reignite your life.      

The Sun helps you to stand in your grounded power, get back into alignment and align with the energy of the Sun. It purifies and cleanses you so that you are a clean slate to turn on your light and shine bright to be a magnet to attract what you want. 

How to Maximize Your Crystal Formula: 

If you're ready to turn on  your inner light, use this simple 5-step practice:

    1. At sunrise, hold your jewelry in your hands, close your eyes and state your intention out loud 3 times: As the sun rises and sets each day, so do I. Every day is a brand new day. 
    2. Put on your necklace or bracelet and plant your feet firmly in the ground. Close your eyes and place your hands in a triangle over your heart. 
    3. Feel the warmth of the rising sun on your face. See a sphere of golden light surrounding your entire body. See this light expanding and growing, beginning to glow more and more brightly. Feel your light growing brighter and brighter. 
    4. Wear your necklace or bracelet throughout the day to raise your vibration and inner light.
    5. At sunset, place your hands over your heart and watch the sun go down and disappear. See it taking with it anything that you want to purify from the day. Feel it cleansing your energy and lightening your aura.  
    6. At the end of each day, take your jewelry off and lay it to cleanse and recharge overnight on a Selenite Charging Plate. In a journal, jot down any shifts that happened during the day - no matter how small the shifts may seem, write down everything that happened.
    7. Repeat steps 1-6 everyday for 14-40 days.

 Ready to shine as your best self? Get THE SUN.
