Just like a rollercoaster, motherhood can be full of ups and downs. So today we’re sharing our favourite supportive crystals to help you to slow down and take in the magical moments and face the inevitable challenges with confidence.
Rose Quartz: For unconditional love.
This pretty pink crystal is known as the stone of unconditional love and infinite peace. It opens the heart chakra and teaches you the true essence of love, enhancing it in every situation. Rose quartz gently dispels negative energy allowing you to focus on the joy of motherhood, even through the inevitable tough times. Calming and reassuring, it reminds you to love, trust and forgive yourself. Wear it close to your heart to feel its loving energy.
Crystal Quartz: For clarity and healing.
A wonderful stone for mothers who often find themselves too busy nurturing others to nurture themselves. Crystal quartz is known as the ‘master healer’ and is considered to be one of the most powerful healing and energising crystals on the planet. Crystal quartz clears your mind and assists with concentration and memory, particularly beneficial for new mothers experiencing fatigue, sleep depravation and the dreaded ‘baby brain’!
Emerald: For patience and inspiration.
Known for bringing goodness into your life, this sparkling green stone of ‘successful love’ is said to bring inspiration and infinite patience, and if there's one thing every mother needs it's infinite patience! The emerald is also the birthstone of May, which we in Australia along with many other countries throughout the world associate with Mother’s Day.
Moonstone: For hope and intuition.
A stone of reflection and intuition, moonstone’s strong connection to the power of the moon reminds us that everything is part of a cycle of growth and change, encouraging us to go with the flow and appreciate each precious, fleeting moment. Known as the dream stone, it brings hope, inspiration and open-mindedness, calming and stabilising the emotions and protecting you from unwanted energies.
Amethyst: For calm and inner peace.Soothing amethyst is known to balance and centre the emotions, calming or stimulating the mind when needed to provide strength and inner peace. One of the most spiritual stones, it stimulates the third eye chakra enhancing intuition and encouraging spiritual wisdom, awareness and protection. As an added bonus (and perhaps all Mum really wants for Mother's Day!) amethyst is also believed to promote a restful sleep.
Black Onyx: For strength, stamina and perseverance.
