Crystals to help us make the most of Easter
Easter is nearly here again; ready to be acknowledged on its annual cycle. For some Easter is no different to any other days of the year. For others it is a time of religious significance. And for many, Easter is a great four day holiday.
This is an ideal time to rest and recuperate and to recharge the batteries for what’s ahead. It gives us a chance to stop, take stock and reassess our lot. Some of the things you might want to consider are: are you on track? Are your goals still relevant? Are you living your values? Are you being kind to yourself?
Can you allow yourself to just let go and be in the moment for the Easter holidays? It’s even better if you can do this most of the time.
It can be nice to reflect upon the religious significance of Easter and to capture the essence of resurrection and maybe even use this to rebirth and resurrect your authentic self or at least some of it.
Crystals allow us to tap into energies and use them to help us understand and improve ourselves. Heal and restore, boost our energy and express the best of who we are.
Why not get hold of some and let them add their healing power to the enjoyment and experience of Easter.
Crystal Eggs symbolically transmit imagery of new beginnings and the spark of creation. By tradition eggs are regarded as a powerful symbol of purity, fertility and rebirth. In magic rituals and healing practice, crystal eggs are frequently used to encourage fertility and restore virility – throughout body, mind and spirit. Crystal eggs also represent protection, new beginnings, growth and resurrection.
Christians embraced the egg symbology as it was in agreement with their concept of the death into life transformation or Resurrection.

Making the most of crystals this Easter:
Use crystal eggs as part of your Easter decorations.
Make crystal water or elixirs to drink over the break.
Select the crystals that can best help you or resonate with you (not necessarily just from those above) and keep them close by. You could put them in your pocket or purse. Place them in a bowl in the middle of your dining table or entertainment area. Decorate with them in other imaginative ways. Have a bathwith them, even better if it is long and relaxing.
Wear them as jewellery. Tumbled stones placed into wire cages and suspended from a chain, or pinned to clothing are very effective.
