New Year Resolutions – Crystals to help
January 1. A day that so many resolve to follow through on their New Year Resolutions – A New Year – with new beginnings and an opportunity to put the past and things that no longer serve, behind us and to get a fresh new start.
The New Year can provide the circumstances to move forward into bigger and better things and to fulfil our New Year Resolutions. It allows us an occasion to use our intention to build a brighter, better future—as long as we follow through.
So! Here we are a few weeks into this glorious opportunity and what have we done?
Sadly, too many used this time to make idle wishes that will never be commenced, never mind followed through with. Just as many made elaborate plans and then lost motivation with the first obstacle, or just petered out and fell by the wayside of their best intentions.
Some made solid plans and are steadfastly sticking with it. To those who have already tasted sweet victory with their immediate resolutions—Congratulations and well done; now you need to be sure to keep it up and stick to it for the rest.
There is a purpose behind my writing this today and having us revisit our New Year Resolutions. Perhaps we have now found that they were fairy tale wishes, or that they were ill formed. Some may even have been way beyond our realistic capacity. Some of us may have even passed the whole thing off as a bit of a waste of time, while secretly hoping for a greater future. Possibly all of us could use some help to determine what is important and then maintain the motivation to see things right through to their completion.
None of this matters for we now have the opportunity to put our resolutions right and make this a great year.
Whether we are succeeding or failing with the resolutions and plans we made, we now have the chance to make, or re-set, or improve upon what we have already done.
Healing crystals can be used to enhance and support your New Year Resolutions or any plans you may make. Crystals can amplify your intentions and provide energetic support for your goals, whilst inspiring you to take action every day. The key for success lays in setting the right intentions, then making and following an action plan for the year and planning for any resistance to change.
Let’s start with one little tip, a small paradigm shift that makes a huge difference; it’s far better to be “moving towards” success rather than “turning away from” failure. Next, don’t overdo it; just pick one or two things that you really want to embrace in your life this year.
So, let’s say you want to lose weight; you can also make your goal into a positive affirmation: Now instead of making your resolution “I’m giving up take-away”, make it “I enjoy eating healthy foods each and every day.” Make it short and simple. Something you can use like a mantra whenever you feel your resolve slipping.
Crystals will support your intentions, buoy up your motivation and will power and assist with any challenges you may face.
First, choose a crystal that best aligns with your intention. For example, if your goal is to lose and then maintain a healthy weight, Amethyst would assist you with making wise decisions and achieving the calm and balance necessary to move toward what you want and allow for breaking free from harmful addictions and habits. Carnelian and Sunstone could help with the needed motivation to keep you on track. If exercise was added, then a Bloodstone would enhance your endurance and persistence.
Great benefit can be obtained by writing your objectives out and then placing a crystal point on top of your action plan – Help bring your New Year Resolutions intentions to life, with a Citrine point; A Clear Quartz point to provide clarity to your intentions and continuously communicate these to the universe, even when you are not thinking about them; Rutilated Quartz point to endow a feeling of support from the universe. Each day, you can revisit your written goals and refresh your mind as well as recharge your resolve with the crystal energy needed to help accomplish them.
One of the best ways to achieve your goals is to consider any resistance to change and plan for conflicts that may arise and prevent you from accomplishing them. To help you manage this situation, a double terminated Clear Quartz is ideal for when these times arise. Holding the crystal, or rotating it over your chakras can be helpful. Meditating with it may clarify your resistances and reveal the necessary steps to accomplishing your goals.
Your New Year Resolutions could be better achieved with crystals that support your intention, sustain your ability to manifest, resolve any conflict and guide you to reach your goals.
