Fluorite: Healing and Magickal Properties

Fluorite is one of those crystals I can’t stop buying because I find them so amazingly pretty, especially the rainbow ones. They remind me of sweets, even though their energy to me doesn’t feel „sweet“. Yes, they are calming, but at the same time a bit rigid due to their cubic crystal system. I use them when I need calm logic, but that’s just my way of feeling fluorites. 

What is a Fluorite?

Fluorite is a mineral with a glassy luster that is often found in colors of purple, green, blue, and yellow. It is made of calcium fluoride and is a soft mineral with only a rating of 4 on Mohs scale of hardness. Fluorite is found in many places around the world!

Malachite: Healing and Magickal Properties

When I saw a Malachite for the first time, I actually thought it was made from polymer clay! The green swirls and patterns looked too handmade to be a gemstone, I thought. But, of course, I was wrong. Malachite is a beautiful crystal, with no stone looking like the other. So what does it do and which magical properties does it own?

How to Protect Yourself From Negative Energies! 

Last week I wrote about how to be a witch in times of crisis. What I didn’t wrote about is, how to protect yourself from negative energies – not only now but in general! If you follow the law of attraction – something I am getting more and more immersed in – then you know it is absolutely important to keep your energy positive. Because like attracts like and the more negative you become yourself, the more negative things you will attract. Of course that doesn’t mean to run around smiling and ignoring what is going on in the world. But still, you can try to keep the impact on you as small as possible.  Here are some ideas on how to protect yourself from negative energies!

Set Healthy Boundaries

You need to set clear boundaries in order to protect yourself from any negative energies around you. This might be actually telling people in your life about your boundaries, physically setting a boundary between you and toxic people, or just mentally and spiritually putting your guard up.  

One way to set boundaries is to have mental red flags that act as warnings for you to avoid certain people or situations. You might have noticed that your energy is deeply affected, when you are in a room of people gossiping or sharing drama about someone. In that case, you should exit the situation as quickly as possible. This way, you have set this boundary for yourself.  

Sometimes, people in your life have negative influences on your energy, especially if you are an empath, and you will need to have very clear boundaries for those people. 

Mindfulness can help!

You can also protect yourself from negative energy around you by being more mindful.  

Mindfulness allows you to stay in the present. You can check what you are thinking and feeling, instead of looking outward. When you focus on yourself during any moment, you are charged by your own energy and not the surrounding energy.  

This way, you renew your own positive energy, and avoid the possibly toxic energy that might be circling around you.  

Protect Yourself with Crystals

There are many crystals that you can use for protection spells and to keep negative energy away from you. Black tourmaline, pyrite, obsidian, and clear quartz are fantastic crystals for this purpose! You should charge the crystal you intend to use for protection with your clear intention in mind. When you know you are going to be in a place with difficult energies, bring this crystal with you and keep the intention of protection in mind as you use it.

Identify and Avoid Energy Vampires

Energy vampires are people who tend to drain you of all your positive energy. Of course, they don’t do it on purpose! Some of them do this completely subconsciously, where they just have habits that create negative energy in your presence, or they like to ask too much of you and suck up all your energy. Other people are more malicious and have negative thoughts like jealousy, bitterness, resentment, or envy that can also severely drain your good energy.  

If you feel absolutely exhausted mentally and physically whenever you are around a particular person, then you know they are energy vampires and should probably be avoided in the future.

Please stay sane and healthy in these difficult times.
Blessed be!

Crystals You Can Put Under Your Pillow

Crystals can hold powerful energy, which you can even feel, when you are sensible enough. The energy itself can help to protect you, soothe you, make you feel more enlightened, even ward off negative spirits. Crystals can also help you sleep better, relieve stress, and generally feel more positive. That is why it can be so beneficial to keep some crystals under your pillow while you are sleeping. Please remember to cleanse and charge them properly. And if they don’t feel right, choose another crystal, that you are drawn to! Also, please keep in mind that you should use it safely. If you can’t put a crystal in your bed without accidentally hurting yourself, rather put it on a nightstand or under the bed!

Amethyst

One of the best crystals you can put under your pillow is the amethyst. Amethyst has very cleansing and purifying properties. But it can also help you to sleep a little bit better! If you are looking for crystals to help with insomnia, or simply be calmer while you sleep, then this is the right crystal for you.  

Flourite

Another very calming crystal is fluorite. It not only helps you to calm your mind, but it can also get rid of some of those returning negative and anxious thoughts you might be struggling with. For many witches, having trouble sleeping is less about physical causes and more about your mental state. Because if you have too much going around in your head, your mind can’t quiet long enough to help you sleep.  Fluorite is also a great supporter of lucid dreams!

Rose Quartz

Rose quartz is often associated with love and romance, but of course it can also be used for self-love. Rose quartz is perfect, if you feel you need to manifest more self-love while sleeping and if you have had confidence or self-esteem issues. It is also wonderful for giving you more emotional warmth and love, feeling more positive while you sleep, as it is a very gentle stone.

Howlite

The benefits of keeping a howlite stone under your pillow are very similar to that of amethyst. It is a calming and soothing crystal, that wards off negative energies and protects you from any bad vibrations that might lead to nightmares. It can also help to calm your mind and settle down for sleep.

Lepidolite

Lepidolite is a wonderful protection crystal, so if you have been struggling with bad dreams lately, this is the perfect crystal for you. Not only can it protect you in your dreams, but also protect your energies from turning too negative from stressful or anxious thoughts. For this reason, you might also consider carrying this crystal with you throughout the day when you feel like you need some extra protection.

Crystals for Anxiety and Stress

Crystals can be a wonderful way to reduce stress and anxiety — but please keep in mind that if you suffer severely from both, go and see a doctor, get in therapy and take your medication! Crystals won’t heal anxiety but can be of great help and support!

You also have to find out what is the best way for you to have the crystals near you. You could put them in the pocket of your trousers, wear them as a necklace or bracelet, keep them near you on your desk or at your bedside. It just has to fit your needs! I used to wear them as a necklace till a few years ago and then switched to bracelets — why? I honestly don’t know, I am just following my intuition.

So here are three crystals you can use to reduce stress:

Rose Quartz

Rose quartz has an amazing calming presence, even by looking at it. When you touch it, it feels gentle and loving. Imagine using this crystal to help soothe your emotions and calm your thoughts, and you can see why it is the perfect energy. If you can wear a rose quartz near your heart chakra to get the most of it!

Black Tourmaline

Normal black isn’t a color associated with bringing calmness and reducing stress. But black tourmaline is one of the best crystals for anxiety and stress, because it absorbs all the negative energy you have around you, which is why it is so powerful for healing and protection. However, since it absorbs so much of the negative energy, it does need to be cleansed and charged more often than your other crystals.

Amethyst

Last but not least, amethyst is the perfect stone for reducing stress and anxiety. Any time you are struggling with your emotions, stress, or anxiety, you should consider using amethyst for spiritual practices. Even having it near you during meditation will help tremendously to manifest reduced stress and a calmer mind! Wearing one is also tremendously helpful.
