Do you ever feel like your life is a movie constantly stuck on fast forward? When you ask how someone is these days the usual response is 'busy'. Yes, we're all busy - we're all wearing numerous hats and trying to juggle as many things as possible but what are we doing to slow down and actually enjoy life?
If you feel like you're missing the point in getting from A to B, here are some of my favourite crystals to help you slow down and enjoy the ride!

Work with your crystals during meditation or keep them in your bag, car or bedside table. Once they are infused with your energy, they will work for you, delivering all of their healing properties. If you're new to crystals, be sure to follow the next few steps - this is really important!
Cleanse: Purify your stone by placing it in a small bowl with water and 1 Tablespoon of rock salt (my fave is Pink Himalayan, but any rock salt will do). Keep it in there for around 30 minutes and then rinse it under running water.
Activate: Charge your crystal by placing it in direct moonlight, sunlight or burying it into the Earth. Allow it to activate for at least 1 hour and then hold the stone in your hand saying something along the lines of ""I intend for this crystal to be effective for healing in light and love for the highest and greatest good of all"
After this process, your crystals are ready for use! Just remember if anyone else touches your crystal, you will need to repeat the cleanse and activation process again due to the transfer of energy.
As we approach the end of the year (or as some people refer to it as the 'silly season') remember to breathe and take the pace off life. Enjoy the moment and show gratitude for all that you have! Living in the present and actually being content with where you're at and what you have is the absolute key to happiness.
Love & Light
