Healing Crystals and Christmas
article by Reiki Master Colleen Simmons
Christmas brings a mixed bag of joy, love, laughter, happiness, sadness, stress, overwork, depression and
There is a feeling in the air at Christmas (a cliché) a higher vibration if you like. People
are more friendly, even to strangers, they smile and nod where normally they would not
even make eye contact. Feel-good movies appear on our TV screens, stores play
Christmas carols you will hear people singing and humming as they shop. It's a great
time of year for most of us.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could carry these feelings and actions with us throughout
the year? We can do this. There are Crystals that help to instill the very things that make
Christmas so special.
For those of us for whom Christmas is not so wonderful - the homeless, those with little or
no money, the lonely, the depressed, those who are stressed and overworked this time of year
can be their worst time.
Holiday Healing Stones
Hope & Compassion = white topaz, aventurine
Joy & Kindness = turquoise, jade
Love & Hope = rose quartz, moss agate
Sadness & Stress = amethyst, moonstone
Despair & Goodwill = chalcedony, copper
Create your own combinations from the stones below...
We can do practical things to help these people for example, donate food and money, try
to bring about social change. BUT we can also do something else that is not quite so
tangible. We can use the power of Crystal Healing to help those that want to be helped to
improve the lives. You do not have to go to these people personally. You do not even
have to know their names or faces, all you need to know is that you want to send them
love happiness and joy.
You can use a single Crystal or you can use a Crystal Healing Grid (we use a number of
Crystals to heal a number of things at once). I have listed below some crystals whose
healing properties can be used to these purposes. You can also use these Crystals to help
keep the best qualities of this time of year in your own lives as well.
Compassion:Angelite, Aventurine, Rhodochrosite, Tourmaline
Happiness: Snakeskin Agate, Copper, Tiger Eye
Hope: Moss Agate, Topaz, Lepidolite
Joy: Chrysanthemum Stone, Jade, Peridot
Kindness: Smithsonite, Green Spinel, Turquoise
Loneliness: Abalone, Aragonite, Carnelian
Love: Botswana Agate, Rose Quartz, Tourmaline
Sadness: Amethyst, Azurite
Stress: Ametrine, Celestite, Moonstone
Depression: Smokey Quartz, Sunstone
Overwhelmed by responsibilities: Aquamarine, Gold
Despair: Regency Rose Agate, Iron Pyrite, Copper
These are just a few of the Healing Crystals that you can use for the above conditions.
I do not want to make you feel guilty or sad or spoil Christmas in any way with this
article - quite the contrary, I want to enhance all the positive feelings of love that you have
at Christmas and all year and this can happen when we think of others and do something
small that really does not cost us much in time or money.
For me Christmas is a time of Love, Hope the coming together of people everywhere.
Christmas gives me great hope for the future, because if we can behave like this for a few
days then we will eventually be like this all the time (I know people keep telling me that I
am the supreme optimist but hey, we are all still here and the World is still turning).
I wish you and yours are safe happy and loving Christmas.
Love and light
