To continue the conversation on crystals, I want to recommend 3 easy-to-find crystals for general health and relaxation that you can use at home. I also want to use this as an opportunity to explain the crystal's unique properties and how they affect the body. You can create a mini crystal relaxation session at home with just these 3 crystals.
The first crystal is Lapis Lazuli.
Lapis is a vivid blue stone with flecks of "gold." It has cooling and calming properties, nourishing the Kidneys (Water element) in the body. To generate a sense of calm, self-love, and grounding, try placing one under your foot (or both feet), while sitting in a chair. The acupuncture point you are aiming for is called Kidney 1 or "Bubbling Spring." No need to be exact, but this is a picture of the point:
Alternatively, if you want to do your crystal session lying down, you can put the Lapis on the lower stomach, an inch or two below the belly button.
The next stone I recommend is Tiger Eye.
Tiger Eye is a great stone for strengthening digestion (Earth element) and improving overall energy in the body. This stone is great for fatigue, increasing motivation, digestive issues, and promoting feelings of adequacy. Place the stone on the midline of the abdomen, on a point called CV 12. Again, you don't need to be exact, but just place roughly in that area.
The next stone is Amazonite.
This stone is cooling and calming and great for anxiety, chest tightness. aches and pains, and allergies. It also helps with strengthening willpower and determination.
There are 2 great locations for this stone:
1) On the chest, wherever it feels most comfortable.
2) On the right side of the abdomen over the Liver area.
Try both spots and see which feels best.
Enjoy your mini-relaxation session!
