My Top 5 Crystals for Yule
Yule, the Winter Solstice, a time that marks the return of the sun. And one of my absolute favourite times of the year! The days from now start to get a little longer. It's a time of giving and coming together with friends and family to celebrate. It is also a time to say goodbye to the old and welcome in the light and the new. So, prior to Yule is a perfect time to have a good physical declutter of your home as well cleansing energetically by smudging.
This season's colours are white and silver to represent the cold and the snow. But also, the obvious traditional colours of red and gold which are a nice representation of the sun coming back. And of course, green which is a beautiful representation of nature and continuous life.
So what crystals are great to use at this time of year?
Here are a few of my personal favourites;
The colour red, this crystal brings the energy of fire with it, it’s the birthstone of those born in January and as a token for a second Wedding anniversary too!
Garnet inspires love, commitment and stimulates kundalini energy. By bringing the fire energy it’s a great Stone to bring passion into your relationship, closely connected to the sacral chakra will help to increase your sexual desire and confidence. Garnet balances and cleanses the chakra points and is useful when overcoming traumas. It boosts the basic survival instinct to help you tackle and get through almost anything, it helps you to know the inner strength you already have to enable you to move forward.
In ancient times it was carried as a talisman for spiritual protection. It helps you to let go of the things that no longer serve you and move forward positively with an open heart.
Green Goldstone is a manmade stone, this glass gets its green colour from chromium and is sometimes also called sandstone due to it being sand infused. The sparkle of Goldstone is just beautiful and is a result of copper particles reflecting the light.
Green goldstone is associated with abundance and the heart chakra. It gently wards off negative energy and is an emotional healer.
Goldstone is a beautiful stone known as the stone of ambition.
It builds positive energy, drive, courage and strength. A must have to help you move forward with your dreams and desires.
Pyrite is an iron sulphide mineral with a shiny metal look, and this is why it is quite often called ‘fool's gold’. It therefore brings with us the energy of Gold so will aid to bring you abundance, success and power!
Pyrite is also a highly protective stone; it shields you from negative energy of all kinds both emotionally and physically.
Pyrite blocks aura energy leaks and will mend any auric damage. Carry Pyrite with you to protect yourself from both environmental pollution and physical danger.
It also promotes good physical health and emotional well-being.
Snowflake Obsidian is a type of Black Obsidian so is a form of volcanic glass, created when the volcanic lava cools down quickly. The presence of Cristobalite is what makes the little “snowflake” patterns. Most commonly found in North & South American.
Known as the “stone of purity”
Snowflake Obsidian is connected with the base chakra so will help to ground you and make you feel safe by bringing balance to the mind, body and spirit, as well as encouraging your personal growth.
Snowflake Obsidian helps to put you in the right frame of mind, by allowing you to focus and let go of unhelpful behaviour patterns that may be distracting you. It works in a similar way to Black Obsidian by bringing emotions to the surface that need to be acknowledged, addressed and processed. But it does so in a much gentler way, this process will help to bring you peace of mind once you can finally heal and release these emotions.
Snow Quartz is the name of a beautiful type Quartz crystal that contains little tiny bubbles of water. As it is a type of Quartz it has all the basic properties that clear Quartz does such as being an amplifier of other stones energies as well as being a fabulous stone of healing. It has a beautiful soft feminine and due to it being the colour of snow it is the perfect crystal to be using at this time of year. It gently encourages us to find balance and alignment. Also helps to bring clarity, focus and alertness during tense moments. Its healing properties enhance wisdom and sharpen the mind. It’s also commonly known as White Quartz or Milky Quartz.
