I don’t know about you, but growing up I was told you can’t wish or wait for things to come to you, you have to go out and get them. I remember testing that theory as an 8 year old and woke up kinda disappointed that it was true (I mean guys I wished for a yo yo, I know it's odd but I was a weird kid) but the thought never occurred to eight year old Alexa to ask instead of wish (now I was an extremely shy kid which has turned me into an awkward adult but that's a story for another day, perhaps they have stones for awkward people). I’ll have to research that and let you know. Ok, I need to get back on track here, this blog is going to be focusing on crystals that help you in manifestation or setting an intention. So unlike younger me, we are looking at what we can put out into the universe and the crystals that can help bring those intentions to life. Now please do not misunderstand this, you STILL need to work for what you want. The universe is not going to be throwing money, love or success into your lap but, it can help you choose the right places to put your focus and energy. So if you're ready, you can manifest your dreams into reality and keep on reading.
The first stone we are going to be talking about is Citrine. Now keep in mind that natural Citrine is becoming increasingly rare and heat treated Amethyst is often passed off as Citrine so make sure to do your research. (And guys I do have to throw it in here that we do have natural citrine available in store). Citrine is a great stone to use to manifest wealth prosperity and all good things. It is known as a happy generous stone which will also help to encourage you to share what you have. (Because the more we have the more good in the world we could do, right?)
The next stone we are going to talk about is a stone for all the lonely hearts out there. Rose Quartz is a stone for the heart. It’s a stone of unconditional love and infinite peace. It can be used to call a romantic relationship, or bring self love (which less face it, some of us need more than others). If you are looking to call love to yourself, place a rose quartz by your bed. If you are in an existing relationship, it can help to restore trust and harmony. Rose Quartz is also a great stone to help you learn how to love yourself, and once you can love yourself, others can love you too.
Obsidian has made regular appearances on our blogs as well. This is a stone that is good for anyone who is looking to make a change. This is a stone that helps us let go of negative habits and beliefs that no longer serve us. I mean come on, admit it, some of us are stuck in a routine that no longer works, and that needs to change, myself included here. When we are able to let go of what is holding us back, then we are able to see our opportunity for change.
Carnelian is a great manifestation stone for you creatives. The beautiful reddish stone is a high energy stone which is perfect for restoring motivation, (I’m talking to all you burnt out people out there!) It is also said to increase courage, stimulate ambition and help eliminate fear and doubt and helps you get down to the bottom of what makes you tick, because for some of us we have no clue.
The last stone on my lift is once again my all time favorite Amethyst. This purple beauty helps to promote calm (which for my anxiety prone self if amazing). Amethyst is perfect for stretching intuition which helps you to manifest your desires quickly by showing us the correct direction to go to in order to achieve our goals.
Now Remember we recommend choosing the crystals that calls to you, because chances are there is something you need at that moment in time from the crystal. Try different crystals and see how each one works for you.
