7 crystals to help you concentrate

We all feel the need for focus sometimes don’t we?  Concentrating with so many distractions in modern living can be a challenge.  Be ahead of the game and use these 7 crystals to aide your concentration.
You can use crystals with your chakras.  Not sure what chakras are?  They’re ‘energy centres’ in our bodies and they’re colour-coded according to each ‘energy centre’ or chakra.   You can read more on chakras soon on my blog and this poem is a brief guide to chakras.

Now let’s look at those 7 crystals that can help you concentrate…

Brief Guide to Chakras Wellbeing Balance

A brief guide to chakras

I recently told you how you can balance your body and mind with crystals.  To illustrate how you can do this, there are many levels of alternative therapies that we can and must look at.  The challenge is to introduce each level as a layer, much like an auric layer!  (more on those at a later date!)

We each have 7 major ‘spinning wheels’ called chakras. They should each be open and spinning in alternate directions. They should also align with each other. If they’re not open and aligned, the energy cannot flow freely. When we have blockages in our energy flow, we become out of balance. This is when our body becomes out of alignment or not at ‘ease’. It is when our body is ‘dis-eased’ that we get ill. It is clear to see then, that if we keep our chakras balanced, we are less likely to experience ‘dis-ease’ or ‘illness’ and stress.

Other than introducing you to my ebook ‘The Domino Effect‘ (for your free copy, opt-in at the bottom of this post), the best way I can think to introduce you to the wonderful world of chakras is in poem form.  Here’s one that I wrote a few years ago and it’s the perfect time to share it again:

How to balance your body and mind with crystals

We all feel the stresses of life don’t we?  Even those of us who follow a daily routine.  It’s called ‘life’.  As soon as you step outside your door, you leave yourself open to outside influences that cause imbalances in your body and mind.

But there are things you can do to keep that balance and keep ‘aligned’

5 ways to ground yourself and control anxiety

Do you or someone you know experience anxiety?  Then you need 

5 ways to ground yourself and control anxiety…

5 ways full to ground yourself and control anxiety virtually all sorts wellbeing

Look at happy pictures.  My ‘Smile, give your face a work-out’ pinterest board never fails to, well make me smile!  There are quite a few cute cat ones on there but the rest are just random ones that I’m sure will make you laugh from the belly.  You’re welcome 🙂

 

Surround yourself with positive people.  And if you’re limited to social contact for whatever reason (due to sleeping children at night-time or isolation perhaps due to illness), then you can join in with forums or even pinterest boards.  My ‘Just Wow’ board may literally take your breath away.  When I’m pinning away, I’m saying ‘wow’ and bam, it ends up on my board.  The beauty will at least help you forget your anxiety for a while.

 

Read positive things ~ blogs, books, inspirational quotes, the Positive Moment Project pinterest board.

This picture from Two Tiny Hands was taken from there 5 ways to ground yourself and control anxiety virtually all sorts wellbeing…and don’t you just love it?!

 

Breathe ‘properly’ ~ meditate, practice yoga, use crystals.

 

Use a grounding rock ~ Mine is called my ‘gratitude rock’ and it works really well for me.  It’s whichever crystal I have on my person on any given day.  By physically touching it, I’m reminded of why it’s there, which helps to ground me.  I always make sure I’m using the right one for me on any given day.

 

Have you got any other ways to ground yourself?  All positive thoughts are welcome!  Share them in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere 🙂

Crystals for healing layouts … relax with #TheZenZing

As I delve deeper into my Crystal Healing Practitioner’s Course, I become more intrigued with crystal layouts (or grids, as they are also known).
To that end, I have scoured my The Essential Crystal Handbook to learn more about the benefits of each crystal featured, noted which ones I feel will benefit me and decided which crystals I need, along with the quantities, in order to use the healing layouts effectively.
#TheZenZing Zen Zing crystals crystal healing layout grids relax energy positivity realign rebalance

I already own a small collection of crystals which I use on a daily basis.  My next step is to expand my collection to enable me to use the following crystal layouts:
  • To encourage new ideas ~ place fluorite below the sacral chakra and on the throat chakra
  • To aid inventive solutions to problems ~ hold meteorite (not strictly a ‘layout’ but a healing use of a crystal nonetheless!)
  • To be uplifted ~ place: Citrine at the root chakra and solar plexus; aventurine at heart chakra; blue lace agate at throat chakra; danburite at brow (third eye chakra)
  • For detoxing ~ place calcopyrite at the brow for new ideas; place calcopyrite at solar plexus to increase enjoyment of life
  • To help stop recurring worries ~ place kyanite at the brow and on each wrist pulse (or next to hands); smoky quartz at the feet
  • To encourage restfulness ~ sleep with blue lace agate near to your bed
  • To aid peace and contentment ~ place a blue stone at your throat chakra; larimar at heart chakra and 2 clear quartz either side (with points facing out); citrine at solar plexus; smoky quartz between legs
  • To help achieve your goals ~ place epidote at the centre of your forehead and in each hand
  • To release negativity ~ place 7 tumbled labradorite… around your body to include around your head, by each foot, each side of your body; fluorite at the base of your throat
~
I’m very much looking forward to using the above layouts with some reiki and I hope to report back in #TheZenZing post in a couple of months (if not before!) 🙂

My no procrastinating day…

So, I told you last week that I was going on my ‘no procrastinating’ day and I’m very happy to say that I actually did it!

WhatImWriting blog linky no procrastinating #NextBigThing

I focussed, re-focussed and re-focussed again, several times.  I wrote and wrote and wrote.  With no editting.  And it still hasn’t been editted.  But it will be.  And when it is, I will have completed the next step of my #NextBigThing project 🙂 I’ve chosen my title and I’m (finally) in the process of approaching an illustrator (the very rough sketches have been done).

The very fact that I’m almost over the awful lurgy that I’ve been in the midst of for over a month (!) and have found some more energy, is exciting in itself!  I’ve also cleansed my crystals and have been re-energising and healing with the help of new-found knowledge from my Crystal Healing Practitioner’s course.

I’m feeling good!  I’m back! 🙂

Crystals ~ All That Shines

pyrite fool's gold crystal shine blog

I’ve written before about my intrigue with crystals. Not the chandelier type! I’m talking about the incredibly versatile mineral formations that are crystals (which I’m still learning so much about). In previous posts I’ve touched on the healing properties and the energising properties of some crystals. Some, like Pyrite or ‘Fool’s Gold’, can help to protect against pollutants and negative energy. With its amazing reflective, brassy surface, pyrite activates, cleanses and clarifies. With these properties and its shiney surface, do you see how I sometimes turn to fool’s gold in the right circumstances?

With thanks to Sara at Mumturnedmom for The Prompt “shine”.
