As you know I’ve done a great post about the oils that I use to help me and because I love woo woo stuff I also have some crystals that I have on hand to help me focus and make my magic happen and while they’re not directly linked with creativity, well one is I like to have them around as a positive reminder. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re pretty to look at and sparkle when you give them the chance.
Now this baby is a gorgeous crystal cluster that makes me so giddy staring at it. She was my second crystal cluster (the first being my citrine) and has by been the biggest help. Amethyst is known for its balancing and clarity when it comes to the mind, it’s also overcome addictions and blockages, which is a writer’s excuse for everything, hey?
Oh hello, there dear writer’s block it’s nice to meet you? No, it’s really not (ps writer’s block isn’t real unless there’s a traumatic event that has happened, believe me). It also enhances memory and decision-making and is great for improving motivation.
Pretty nifty hey?
This is one of my favourite stones, mostly because it’s yellow but because it’s also known to bring abundance. The one that I have in my room has green sticky notes underneath it to help me create some abundance in my life. But the real magic here lays in the fact that citrine raises your self-esteem and self-confidence.
If you feel like you’re being a bit self-destructive, pop this on your desk or in your pocket and it’ll help you smash through it. It also enhances motivation, activates your creativity and encourages self-expression.
It can also help you deal with criticism and negativity which makes it a writer’s best friend. It’s also great for concentration.
Phwoar this little nugget is a goodie.
I keep this one on my desk but I swear I saw at the store I got it from that it was for creativity or I might have read it somewhere, but regardless it stays here because it’s grounding and balancing. It’s also known as Chalcopyrite, which I only just found out, but I have a small chunk that helps with my writing mojo. There’s not a lot of information, but I’m going to strive to find out more. Right now it’s just pretty!(ha!)
For more information on these crystals and many more check The Crystal Bible books bY Judy Hall. It’s seriously one of the best books I’ve come across.
