In the previous article “What do We Mean by Spirituality?” we looked at the ways in which your spiritual existence and experiences are directly linked to your moods, feelings, mental and emotional health. In order to be truly at home and comfortable with ourselves, we need to be aware of the way in which we are connected to all that is. We are part of the cosmic whole, and the more we feel as if we are an important part of the whole, the safer and more secure we feel, on a deep soul level. When you have found a way to connect with the energies and vibration of Spirit you will know that you can handle anything that comes up for you in your life.
Which Crystals are Best for Spiritual Work?
Connecting with Spirit, with the vibrations of love and benevolence that are constantly all around us, brings a deep sense of joy and contentment no matter what is happening in your physical world. Crystals can help you to make this connection, and to maintain it during the ups and downs of your everyday life.
Rose Quartz for Love
This delicate pink crystal is a firm favorite with just about everybody. It carries a vibration of Unconditional Universal Love and allows you to open your own Heart chakra to these loving vibrations so that you are able to both give and receive love on all levels. It is a highly spiritual stone with a comforting, motherly vibration that will soothe your fears and allow you to grow and develop spiritually in a safe, comfortable way.
Carnelian for Confidence
Carnelian aligns with the Sacral chakra and is an excellent crystal to use when you want to access your own spiritual insights and creativity. Many people are shy or doubtful about their spiritual experiences, reluctant to speak about or acknowledge for fear of being judged or mocked. Carnelian is your support stone, letting you know that yes, your feelings and experiences are real! Share them with others with confidence, but above all, allow yourself to accept that your connection to the Divine, the Cosmos, to Angels, to Other Worldly Energies is valid and real.
