Welcome Back! Today we are tackling a topic that EVERYONE has to deal with at one point or another in their life, the workplace. Whether you love your job, tolerate it or hate every stinkin minute you are there, the crystals that are mentioned in this blog can help.
Even if you absolutely love your job (like we do), some days can get hectic and overwhelming, that's completely normal (I think…). There are crystals that can help you find peace and harmony. If you hate your job and are running out the door as soon as the clock hits 5, (maybe even 4:30 on Fridays….don’t worry, I won’t tell) there are crystals that can help bring new opportunities into your life. So if you are ready to make a change, then keep on reading!
The first crystal we are going to talk about is the most effective crystal for the workplace. A clear crystal sphere, (you would want to use a sphere because they emit positive energy in ALL directions) will help to unify people in different situations and aid in making the workplace more productive, especially when placed in the middle of an open floor plan office. Now, I know that many people do not have the luxury of working in an open floor office, (yes, you cubicle dwellers, I’m talking to you) not to worry, it's not to say you can’t benefit from this crystal, simply place it near a telephone (do they still have those?) or a computer. By doing so, this invites opportunity for beneficial calls, sales and networking .
Next we are going to move on to crystals for protection in the workplace. I mean most of us can think of that one person that we work with that no matter how much coffee you shove their way, they don’t seem any more pleasant…(Come on...you know...the person that as soon as you see them heading your way, you head for the hills…). The best stone for protection in the workplace is hands down, Black Obsidian. You can easily program this crystal with your intentions (perhaps blocking out negativity, helping your big business pitch to run flawlessly or helping to rid unkind thoughts). Just remember to cleanse your crystals weekly to remove any residual negative energy. And as an added bonus, Obsidian will attract success and recognition to you (Just sayin).
In addition to Black Obsidian, Quartz Crystal Points are another great way to protect yourself from workplace negativity. Simply placing the quartz crystals on the outer sides of your workspace with the points facing you, will help keep positive energy flowing towards you all day. When you feel trouble is brewing turn the points so they face away from you. This also may help in keeping the problems away too.
Now onto the other problems that may plague a workplace. This next stone is extremely helpful, especially if you work in customer service and you deal with complaints or challenging phone calls. Place a dark green and red Bloodstone near your phone or computer. This is a stone of courage that helps you stand your ground and politely prevail until you get what you want. (Asking for a raise anyone?)
On the outside looking in? Are you in a workplace that is extremely cliquey? Have a boss that favors one over the rest? (I mean I thought all that was over in highschool but I guess not) then Blue Calcite is extremely helpful in dissolving cliques and workplace rivalries. Not to mention it helps to protect the workplace from dishonesty. This blue powerhouse of a stone can also help you with choosing the right words to flow out of your mouth so the workplace stays positive and friendly. (it is called a filter, but as you know, sometimes you can let it slip out when dealing with cliques and rivalries.)
If you are one of the many in the workforce that spends a majority of their time on the computer or near electronics, Malachite is for you! Place a piece in each corner of your computer or near any machine you use regularly, as it helps to clear electromagnetic pollution. (Please remember to only use tumbled Malachite). I know some employers may not want crystals displayed,but you can still receive the benefits by keeping tumbled stones in a drawstring bag in your desk or near your primary workspace.
Now don’t think we forgot about those of you who may not exactly love their job. I know the current employment climate is less than ideal, especially in certain specialties. And switching careers can be daunting, however there are some stones that can help guide you in the right direction. Green Chrysoprase is great for helping you find a job especially in a tough work climate. It is especially helpful to have with you when you are sending out applications (or applying online because really, who uses paper applications anymore? I mean really? Does anyone? Seriously, I want to know!) Green Chrysoprase reminds us that a new opportunity comes when it is least expected and will often open unexpected doors in the future. Rutilated Quartz aids in successful career changes, especially if the career change is a spiritual or creative focused change.
Have you ever had that scary feeling of a career change? Most of the time you can’t walk in and get the job on the spot, (unless you start your own business, but that's a different blog post). You actually have to interview (and unless you love hearing yourself speak, which hey you might and good for you, interviews are hard!) But have no fear! Lapis Lazuli helps one have successful interviews and encourages steady career advancement.
Now I know there can be an endless list of issues in the workplace and this list can’t possibly cover them all (In other words, we would be here foreverrrr) but hopefully this helps you to eliminate some of the more common problems.
