4 CRYSTALS TO BOOST YOUR MOOD
(AND BANK ACCOUNT)
Article by Katie Potratz
Ah, the life of an entrepreneur… It’s so rewarding, freeing, and liberating. Yup, it’s sunny skies when you’re a #girlboss.
Of course, you’ll always have to watch out for the occasional dark cloud of doubt, the winds of worry, and the scattered self-criticism showers.
If you’re an entrepreneur you know that it’s not always rainbows and butterflies. In fact, when it comes to running the show, we tend to work a hell of a lot harder and longer, and get knee deep in issues we’d rather not deal with. But at the end of the day, we’re doing what we love and we don’t report to anyone. Can you spell f-r-e-e-d-o-m!?
Since I’m all about helping you chase your dreams and crush yo’ goals, I thought you could gain from a few crystal suggestions to keep your spirits (and bank account) high.
I’ve rounded up the four crystals that I personally have in my #girlboss office, and keep on hand at all times. They’ll help keep you afloat in difficult times as you ride the roller coaster of female entrepreneur-hood.
And these stones will perfectly complement that chic vibe you’ve got happening in your workspace!
1 :: Lepidolite
Lepidolite is an excellent stone for the entrepreneur. It’s known as the “stone of transition”, assisting in the release and reorganization of old behavior and unhelpful patterns. It also dissipates negative energy, clears blockages, aids in keeping you focused on what’s important and helps you look forward into the future –a great skill for the business woman.
This beautiful lilac stone also encourages independence, self-love, and trust. Lepoidolite will also help keep your office clear from things like electromagnetic pollution, while strengthening your immune system, stabilizing mood swings and help with stress caused by being in front of a computer all day.
2 :: Cinnabar
Cinnabar is one of my newest crystal favorites and I always keep my beautiful cinnabar sphere in my office to keep me charged up.
Cinnabar is known as the “stone of prosperity” and is an excellent stone to use in manifestation. It increases the kundalini energy and encourages the flow of Chi throughout the body. Cinnabar stimulates the emotional body, and can assist in releasing buried resentment, anger and fear which is crucial for living in your highest vibration and attracting your desires.
3 :: Red Aventurine
I recently discovered this stone, and my first thought was where have you been all my life?! You’ll probably feel the same way too.
Red Aventurine boosts physical energy levels, helping you get through those early morning hustle sessions. It also encourages optimism (say what?! I know, it’s incredible), inspires dedication to tasks, and helps us make appropriate choices for our life path.
Not to mention, it heightens self-confidence and keeps the ego in check.
Red Aventurine can also assist with releasing guilt and boosting libido (hey, a girl has needs), and if you’re also trying to fit into that little red pantsuit, use Red Aventurine to help stimulate your metabolism!
I told you, this stone is everything.
4 :: Rose Quartz
You may not be surprised to see Rose Quartz on the list, and that’s because this crystal should be in every girl’s collection. It’s the essence of self-love.
Just look at the beautiful blush coloring, it radiates acceptance and love.
Rose Quartz is typically thought of as a romantic stone, but its resume is actually much larger. Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love. That means love for all things, love for oneself, and love and compassion toward others. It can help you recognize your own need for forgiveness and understanding, and will wash out toxic energies and emotions you have trapped inside.
So how is this helpful for the lady bosses out there?
If you build your empire with a strong foundation of compassion and unconditional love, you will not only succeed, but actually appreciate your success and have a greater impact on the lives of others. People can tell when someone’s agenda is all about ringing in the cash. And they can also sense when someone truly cares about the impact that their business has on the world.
I keep rose quartz close by to remember to always come from a place of love. To be compassionate to others and myself, it’s a beautiful stone and brings beautiful energy.
So there you have it, four stones that are perfectly curated for the girl boss (or aspiring girl boss!). Carry them around or keep them in your super chic lady boss office!
