A FRESH START IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER.
Life is full of transitions. It’s often been said that the only constant in life is that it changes. And while change can be unwelcome at times – especially if it seems to come on suddenly and unexpectedly – it can also be an opportunity to experience something new. Every ending is also a beginning. And because we are active co-creators here – because we can manifest real, beneficial shifts in our own life circumstances – we can actually invite in these times of transition. If your life has felt boring or stale or if you’ve felt stuck in any particular area, a fresh restart may be just what you need. By setting the intention to experience a new beginning, you send a message to the universe that you are open to shifts in perspective and that you’re ready to experience a new day to day reality.
There are many ways to usher in a new beginning in life. We can attempt different practices, make unique choices, and build habits that will sustain our desired changes. We can call upon our families, friends, and communities to hold the space for our transformation. And we can also utilize the power of crystals to support us in our intentions for positive change! Here are some of the best crystals and stones for ushering in a new beginning:
Moonstone has long been associated with the moon and its cycles; as well as the divine feminine, the subconscious, and the realm of dreams. For this reason, it is one of the best stones for new beginnings. It helps us align with our heart’s desires and find our soul’s purpose. If you’ve been walking a path in life that no longer feels true to you, Moonstone may be helpful to work with when inviting in a more fitting situation. Supercharge your intentions for this desired life change by meditating with a piece of Moonstone at the time of the new moon. Moonstone is also a great crystal for pregnant women and expectant mothers.
Labradorite is a magical stone known for its ability to help shift our perspective and open us up to receive inspiration. Its color appears slightly different depending on the angle in which you’re looking at it, due to the reflection of light. For this reason, Labradorite’s shiny iridescence is a reminder that there are always multiple ways to approach a situation and that everything is not always as it appears to be. For this reason, Labradorite can be a great companion for anyone on the precipice of a big decision; such as whether to switch career paths, to leave a partner, or to pick up and move to a new location. Labradorite can help us attain a birds’ eye view of the situation; allowing us to see all the various routes that exist before us and guiding us to follow the brightest glow of our intuition when choosing a direction.
Citrine is a wonderful crystal to have in any collection as it sparkles with optimism and helps us focus on the joyful and positive aspects of any situation. First-time parents, homeowners, graduates, and anyone in a state of life transition that finds themselves venturing into the total unknown will benefit from working with Citrine. Its inherent, joyful spark encourages a hopeful mindset. It has also been known to activate the solar plexus chakra and with it, our inner reserves of confidence, courage, and determination – all important qualities to access when embarking upon a new beginning.
Green Aventurine is often called the stone of luck and has long been considered one of the best crystals to attract good fortune. It’s a mood-boosting crystal; known to block harmful radiation and negative vibes. When looking for a fresh start in life, Green Aventurine can help align you with positive experiences and opportunities – especially those concerning money, financial abundance, and love relationships. Bring a piece of Green Aventurine to a job interview, important meeting, or first date and it may just be your lucky charm!
Change may ultimately be a positive and beneficial experience for us in some way – and in hindsight this is always the case – but the initial shifts in our day to day reality may cause some anxiety and fear. Transition can be uncomfortable to the ego, which clings to the familiar and what it already knows. This is where it becomes incredibly important to ground your energy. Working with root chakra stones, such as Smoky Quartz, is a great way to feel stable and secure despite the changes taking place around you. Smoky Quartz is a powerful crystal that helps clear unwanted negative energies, such as fear and self-doubt, so that we may better align with our calm and trusting center. Meditate with a piece of Smoky Quartz at your feet or at the base of your spine.
Kyanite is a high-vibrational, self-cleansing stone that reminds us of our innate ability to start each day renewed and from a place of harmonious alignment. It can be the perfect stone for gaining clarity of mind and releasing psychic clutter accumulated within the mental body. Kyanite promotes clear and confident communication and can be helpful whenever you want to make a good first impression. It is known to pave the way for divine inspiration and intuitive insights; giving us greater confidence in our own self-direction and the inner guidance we receive. The more we trust the path as it unfolds before us, the more we can embrace the beauty of a new beginning!
