1 DO A ‘WAKE-UP’ CRYS­TAL MED­I­TA­TION Power up your spir­i­tual prac­tice by hav­ing a lie-in with an amethyst. Be­fore you get up, spend 10 min­utes ly­ing qui­etly with the crys­tal on your third eye chakra (mid­dle of the fore­head). As you breathe deeply, imag­ine the en­ergy of this pur­ple stone pour­ing into your body, help­ing you to feel in­vig­o­rated and spir­i­tu­ally mo­ti­vated.

ASK FOR SPIR­I­TUAL SUP­PORT

When you need a crys­tal to help you, all you have to do is ask. If you need sup­port, hold a piece of mala­chite in your hand and say, ‘Will you help me stay true to my spir­i­tual path? Carry this crys­tal in your bag to en­hance dis­ci­pline and hold it when­ever you feel you need to strengthen your re­solve.

MAKE A CRYS­TAL VI­SION BOARD

Are you feel­ing like a lost soul? Make a col­lage us­ing images of crys­tals and gem­stones cut out from mag­a­zines to help get you firmly back on your path. No­tice the colours you are drawn to and how they make you feel. Bright shades might be up­lift­ing, whereas darker shades could sig­nify the need for re­treat and pro­tec­tion. Add some pos­i­tive af­fir­ma­tions to your cre­ation such as, ‘My soul is sparkly and knows my di­vine pur­pose’.

CRAFT A CRYS­TAL CHARM BAG

Think about the spir­i­tual goals you’ve set your­self and su­per­charge your in­ten­tion by creat­ing a crys­tal charm bag. Take a draw-string bag and fill it with a se­lec­tion of crys­tals to help you fo­cus. Quartz, kyan­ite and flu­o­rite are good choices. Carry the bag with you un­til you’ve achieved your goal.

CON­NECT WITH SPIRIT GUIDES

Charoite is an ex­cel­lent crys­tal to help you open com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the spirit realm. And what bet­ter way to mo­ti­vate your­self than by en­hanc­ing your spir­i­tual con­nec­tion? Place a piece of this crys­tal un­der your pil­low be­fore you go to bed at night and ask your spirit guides to join you in your dreams. When you wake up in the morn­ing, quickly jot down any signs or sym­bols you’ve been shown.

6 LIVE BY THE PEN­DU­LUM

If you’re strug­gling to find di­rec­tion, use a crys­tal pen­du­lum to guide you. Write down a list of 10 spir­i­tual ac­tiv­i­ties you’re in­ter­ested in. Now hover the pen­du­lum over each one and see which ac­tiv­ity gets the first pos­i­tive re­ac­tion from the pen­du­lum (right swing = yes. Left swing = no). Make that the first one to tick off your ‘to try’ list. 7

PRO­TECT YOUR­SELF WITH OBSIDIAN If you’re feel­ing spir­i­tu­ally sti­fled or stuck, you may have picked up some neg­a­tive en­ergy. Place a piece of black obsidian at your feet and imag­ine it blow­ing shim­mery magic dust over your aura,

re­mov­ing any bad vibes.
