This month we have Pluto going retrograde, Jupiter going retrograde, and Saturn going retrograde. That means the Universe is launching us into a review and reflection time. If you want to come out of these retrogrades healthy and feeling like you are spiritually alive, then you will need to make some changes. That’s what retrograde periods are for; to discover what we need to change.
When we change something in our lives, that often means saying “no.” Having trouble with this? Having trouble with saying no to things and people that aren’t good for you? Healing crystals can help.
Sometimes it’s people steering us wrong, and sometimes it’s just things in life. Whatever it is, if it is weighing you down, you aren’t going to grow. That’s why you are here. To grow and be successful and find that path of enlightenment that takes you into abundance of love, wealth, and most importantly, an abundance of joy. Today we are going to look at 5 clearing, healing crystals that will help you do this and help you to say YES to you, and NO to what is not so great for you.
1. Black Tourmaline
Black tourmaline is known to have incredible transformative effects. It is a traditional stone that is used to cleanse negative ions from the atmosphere around which it may reside. As such, it’s considered a protector stone. When negative energy arrives, it repels it and bounces it back into the atmosphere.
If you are having negative experiences with people, this is a wonderful stone. If a work colleague is always all up in your stuff, or a person in your life is abusing your trust, this stone will help you to release the negative energy you may subconsciously be soaking in. It works with your Root chakra, and thus helps you with your basic needs. You have a basic need of being protected from evil people or negative influences. Use black tourmaline to help you bounce it in another direction.
2. Black Onyx
Have you ever heard the phrase, “I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off me and goes back to you.” That’s what black onyx does. It not only protects you from evil spirits, but also evil people and people that lie to you.
Black onyx works with your Third Eye chakra for foresight and intuition, and your Root chakra.
As such, it helps to give you the foresight into who is trying to trick you or bestow some negative energy. It will prevent you from feeling drained by gaslighters, but also help you to see them coming.
You’ll obviously want to come from a place of “NO” with this type, and black onyx will help here.
Amethyst is a wonderful stone that is meant to help you with your dream work, but also your emotional health. It works with your Third Eye and Crown chakras to get you closer to the Divine, and further on your path to enlightenment. When you are dealing with a lot of negativity, it is also a very grounding stone.
Wear it to feel more emotionally stable, and prevent a psychic attack from others. Also, if you are feeling overwhelmed, it stabilizes you. You feel more confident in your sense of self and able to say “NO” to those placing unwarranted demands on you.
At the same time, if you come from a place of NO with amethyst, you also don’t take on the guilt you might otherwise feel from saying no.
Amber is known to be the “Gold of the Sea” and has been used for centuries for a variety of things. It is legendary for even being used on babies, as in days of yore beads and beads of it would be put on babies to protect them from evil doers and naysayers.
Sometimes, though, it’s okay to be a naysayer. Sometimes, being a naysayer means saying yes to you. Toxic naysayers will try and sell you one line and try to trick you into buying falsehoods that could ruin your life. Amber will help you with that.
Amber detoxes air and spirits naturally, and can even help you with pain. It works with your Solar Plexus chakra and your Sacral chakra to help give you the confidence to say no. You don’t have to buy this pile of horsepiles today, thank you.
5. Smoky Quartz
When we come from a place of YES when we don’t want to, that is coming from a place of fear. Sometimes we say yes because we are afraid of what will happen if we don’t say yes. We are afraid of saying no.
What if they don’t like me anymore? What if I lose my job if I say no? What if what if what if what if?
When coming from a place of fear, usually the things we are afraid of happening don’t ever actually end up happening. Well, if you lose your job or relationship because you said no to a demand you weren’t comfortable with, that’s the Universe’s way of saying it wasn’t a good fit.
Smoky quartz works with your Root chakra that helps you to keep your basic needs and sense of confidence clear. It takes that negative energy that is being thrown at you and pours it back into Mother Earth.
Hold it in your palm, visualize it soaking up all of that stress, and say goodbye to your fears.
Then, say no. You can do it!
