The energies in May are all about staying grounded in self and within the earth energies. Massive heart healings and soothing stress. Standing in your self-expression with feeling safe to speak your truth around boundaries with others. The crystals that I chose are:
Blue Chalcedony – Stress relief, Self-care, Healing & Soothing
Associated with the throat and heart chakra Chalcedony’s energy is one of the most calming members of the crystal kingdom, these gently luminous minerals are stones of inner peace and cosmic self-care. Helps you to commit to time and space for caring for yourself, channeling healing and inner radiance to replace stress and burnt out energy. A powerful anti-inflammatory for both mind and spirit. Hold a polished piece and breathe deeply, imagining yourself surrounded by a sweetly, nurturing bubble of blue light whenever you need a moment of peace. A piece under the pillow banishes nightmares and restless sleep and is an especially good sleep aid for children’s rooms or nurseries. It awakens your inner child, helping you live life with a sense of childlike wonder, bright eyed optimism and hope-filled light-heartedness.
Emerald – Abundance, Luck, Health, Protection
Emerald is a gemstone that can manifest huge gifts of magnetic good fortune, abundance and health and is associated with the heart and solar plexus chakra. The ancient Egyptians used it for magic for everything from youthfulness and healthy childbirth to protection in the afterlife. Meditate with Emerald on your heart or sacral chakras to tap into unlimited abundance, vitality, fertility and health. Extremely protective and soothing, perfect stone to take with you in your travels and can bring calm to fear energies. A nurturing, protective crystal for every room in the house.
Hematite – Balancing, Recharge, Grounding, Protection
Magic. Hematite has magnetic properties, and is extremely powerful crystal tool for recharging your personal wiring and energy grid. Associated with the root chakra, it will help anchor you in the present moment and is the perfect stone for those who tend to get stuck in the past or future. A vital stone for rebalancing negative energies whilst under stress. Slip one in your pocket to recharge and balance during your daily activities or tuck one under your chair for continuous grounding during your work day. Adding Hematite to your bath (by your feet) will help you recentre and relax after a long day. It can be too intense, especially for the bedroom if you find it is try using Black Tourmaline or Smokey Quartz instead as they ground and recharge in a gentler manner.
All crystals if they are polished can be cleansed in water. Or you can also use sage, Palo Santo in both smoke and spray versions. Put under the new moons, full moons and sun to recharge any crystal for optimal use.
