How-To: Surround Yourself with Success.

Whether you are advancing your career, looking for love or making a change to your daily routine — we always strive for success in everything we do. While it is not always guaranteed, there are ways to help present success into your life. I’m going to show you how you can add success into your life by surrounding yourself with crystals and gemstones.

Pyrite

Commonly known as fool’s gold, Pyrite is associated with wealth, abundance, prosperity and good luck. If you are looking for success within your career, place a piece of Pyrite on or near your workspace. That way you can look into its shiny, reflective surface and tell yourself you are ready to take the next step.

Garnet

Looking for love and success in your relationships? Purchase a Garnet gemstone necklace and make sure it lays right next to your heart. This deep red gemstone represents love, endurance, self-confidence and courage. Just like its namesake of ‘granatum’ meaning pomegranate in Latin, Garnet can help you plant the seeds of success into your love life — if you let it.

Citrine

From a smokey to a light warm yellow hue, Citrine crystals are beautiful but one of the most deceiving on the market. Unknown to many buyers, most Citrine sold are actually heat-treated Amethyst or Smokey Quartz. This crystal symbolizes joy, optimism, creativity and inspires positive outcomes. Wearing a piece of Citrine in the form of jewelry or carrying one in your pocket will help you manifest success into your life by providing a clear mind and positive energy to focus on your pursuits.

Sodalite

Promoting truth and self-expression, Sodalite gemstones emit a tranquil energy to help you think logically while exploring your creative side. This gemstone encourages discipline, trusting your intuition and helps to calm your emotions. Wearing a piece of Sodalite in the form of jewelry or having one near you when working on your pursuits and creative interests will help bring success into your life by allowing you to believe in yourself, think clearly and act efficiently to help turn your dreams into a reality!

These crystals and gemstones are just some ways to help you surround yourself with success. While success is not always guaranteed, it’s important to remember to always believe in yourself and your abilities. If you continue to work hard and dream big — success will come to you!

A Healing Home: Crystal Decor.

Ever since I’ve started to get into gemstones and crystals — it has become such a fixture in my home.

It’s said that different gemstones and crystals give off certain energies and healing properties. They can range from protection, calmness, self-esteem/confidence boost, wisdom, balance and groundedness — just to name a few.

With all of these different types of stones and properties — it’s hard to know which to add to your home. Now, it’s strictly up to you for which stones call out to you and feel the best / have the right fit! However, for those – like me – who can’t decide — here’s a few suggestions on which gemstones and crystals to add to your home and various living spaces! [*]

The Best for your Desk and Workspace – Amethyst

I’m definitely going to bring a chunk of one to the office for my desk! This stone is a natural stress reliever — it encourages inner strength, peace, spiritual growth and intuition. [**] I also suggest having one (or a cluster) of these in your work space at home as well!

The Best for your Bedroom – Rose quartz

Known as the stone of love, its gentle qualities are said to open your heart to all types of love. Whether it be self-love, romantic, family and for everything else — the bedroom is the best place to surround yourself with love. [**] Since it’s not necessarily a very neutral color, placing this pink stone in your room can be in areas where it’s hidden or to bring a bit of color to your decor — whether it be in a bowl with other stones, a candle holder, book-ends — the possibilities are endless!

The Best for your Kitchen / Dining room – Calcite

Does it still count as being in my kitchen if I placed this stone in my living room which is right next to my kitchen? I’m going to say yes — especially since I only have so much space in my tiny apartment. Calcite radiates calm and soothing energy. It helps restore balance to the mind, body and spirit! [**] The kitchen is a great space for this crystal because it’s where we keep ourselves and our loved ones nourished, as well as being a busy and frequent gathering place. Calcite comes in a variety of colors, so you’re still able to get its properties while choosing whichever fits your color palette best!

The Best for your Living room / Family  room – Selenite

Selenite is ideal for energy cleansing. It’s said to unblock stagnant and remove negative energy. Bringing peace and mental clarity, this is a great crystal for this space because it’s where we gather to be with our loved ones and or an area to rest/relax after a long day. [**]

The Best for your Bathroom – Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz amplifies energy and enhances clarity of the mind. [**] It’s a good crystal to have in this space because it’s an area we are with our thoughts and have time to ourselves — whether it’s taking care of business or relaxing with a hot shower or warm bath.

I can’t wait to add some of these new crystals to my home ASAP! Are any of these in your home? How are you experiencing + enjoying them? Comment below!
