REACHING GOALS: RED JASPER
With the ability to anchor us to the earth and keep us grounded, red jasper creates stability and solidity. It is a stone which inspires us to create action because we feel connected to the earth and the reassurance it offers. If you feel blocked by negative thought patterns, red jasper has the ability to ground you, allowing the earth’s energy to run through you and bring the courage to achieve your desires.
CLEAR ON PRIORITIES: CLEAR QUARTZ
Known for its high vibration, clear quartz creates clarity by clearing your body, mind and spirit of clutter. When it is difficult to identify what you want in life, clear quartz clarifies the vision of what it is you truly desire. If we are equipped with a strong vision, it becomes possible to manifest dreams into reality. Clear quartz has the ability to amplify the energy of other stones placed around it and for this reason, it is a perfect complement for the stones we have chosen for the New Year.
