How to Use Crystals for your New Year

Welcome to 2017


Happy New Year to you!

What is it about the New Year that makes us feel a little bit more inspired to reach our goals?  We sense  a “NEW beginning energy”  surrounding us and feel a need to take advantage of this clean slate.

So on New Year’s day we make this commitment to be a better person, eat healthier, get in shape, start attracting abundance, find a new career, etc. But what happens on day 7 or day 10 or even 40 days after.

Did you know that the first 40 days of a New Year are crucial for us to stay on track!

Well here is something helpful you CAN do that will help solidify your goals this year and keep you focused.

Follow these steps 🙂

  1. Write down some goals on a piece of paper  you want to accomplish this year. (5 or 6)

Maybe you want to bring in more abundance and wealth into your life.  Or you want to lose some weight and eat healthier.  Perhaps you want to attract a loving relationship.

2. Choose 5 affirmations concerning your goals that you feel comfortable saying.

When I say to choose “comfortable” sayings, I mean you have to really attach emotion and FEEL what you are saying.  For example, if your goal is attract abundance into your life, I wouldn’t say “I make a million dollars this year.”  Chances are your brain will take a screeching halt and ego takes over saying, “Pfft, as if, loser!  This is NOT something you want interfering with your positive goal!

Try these instead….

I am grateful for all the abundance I have now in my life.

Thank you Universe for the money that flows easily into my life.

I am a money magnet.

I see opportunity for wealth everywhere I look.

Make sure you choose something that makes you feel good when you say it.  Because just saying the words is not where the magic happens; that’s in your emotions.  The higher you are vibrating energetically (so when you’re smiling, happy and feeling good), the faster the Universe is sending what you desire.

Say your affirmations everyday or choose one to focus on for a week or a month.  I REALLY like using the New and Full moon energies so I change my affirmations every 2 weeks.  Use the New moon to ATTRACT things into your life (wealth for ex.) and the full moon to RELEASE (i.e. fear around money)

3. Choose a crystal that aligns with your specific goal or intention you are working towards. See the list below to help you.

Hold the crystal in your hands and take a few deep breaths in through your nose and exhale fully through your mouth.  This is where you program your crystal: while holding your crystal visualize what you want to intend. Imagine how it makes you feel.  Say an affirmation.  Each time you breathe out, feel your energy infuse the crystal with what you intend and send your gratitude.  This will take 2-5 minutes.  When you fee like your crystal is programmed and ready, you can carry it with you throughout the day or place it somewhere it won’t be disturbed.

Note: you can have multiple crystals working for you at once. Just be sure to program each one.

  4. Place a quartz crystal point on the page where you wrote your 5-6 goals for this year.  The quartz point acts a beacon that tells the Universe you are serious about bring these things into your life, even when you aren’t always thinking about it.  Don’t forget to program that crystal too!
If your intentions centre a lot around bringing abundance and wealth into your life, place a citrine point there as well.  You can’t do this wrong!
Just remember to cleanse your crystals ( I like using smudge and of course the Full moon energy), and program them. Have fun with it!
And may you have a wonderful, peaceful and prosperous New Year!!
