If you’d asked me 10 years ago if I’d be writing a blog about crystals for business, I would have laughed! “Who me? I am a Dental Surgeon and businesswoman with a science background, get a grip!”
2008 changed all that for me. Amidst the financial crisis and banking collapse, I had my own “almost” meltdown. Going through a divorce, personal challenges, a ridiculous “I am a martyr” work ethic, a never-ending to-do list that grew bigger as I grew more stressed and two lovely little boys to look after. Burnout was on the horizon.
I needed help but was a tad reluctant to go down the Prozac route. A friend of mine suggested I see a crystal healer she knew. “Are you kidding me?” I immediately thought, hippy, woo woo, just plain out there! No!
A few weeks later I relented and decided to try the healer. After a few sessions with Anna (now a very dear friend), it turned my life around. From then on, I was a convert. These Crystals helped me to create a life that I always wanted.
I lived and breathed crystals and became a healer myself. What resonated with me was the science behind how crystals worked, and as a scientist I found it made sense. Getting even more curious I thought if it’s great for healing mind, body and spirit, what else can our beautiful and mesmerizing crystal co-workers do? They manifest all kinds of abundance, right? Like love, wealth and health.
It got me thinking, what if I worked with crystals on my business to attract ideal clients and financial abundance? As I started using them, synchronicity increased. Meeting the right person for the task was a frequent event in a very short space of time. Business opportunities came out of nowhere. All this made me appreciate how powerful crystals were.
Don’t forget we are surrounded by them in technology, computers, watches, radio transmitters, lasers and the list goes on. They store huge amounts of data and energy and emit them at a steady frequency.
Since then, I have gone on to work with a range of professions, from high profile football players, musicians, actors and entrepreneurs.
If yours is a start-up business or even an established one, you can work with crystals to supercharge your goals and intentions. Here are my top 5 crystals to investigate.
Known as the “Merchant’s stone”. Place a piece on your work desk. Citrine helps to manifest creative ways of inviting abundance in. This stone is full of positive sun energy and a happy vibe in any business attracts positive outcomes. If you are dealing with and negotiating on contracts, carry a piece of citrine with you and consider it done.
The eye of the tiger is always an asset in business. It stimulates the part of your brain that expands your awareness and ability to assess and understand your situation. It keeps you grounded and promotes balance. Best of all, Tiger’s Eye is great for bringing in and hanging on to money.
A very lucky stone and brings energy and a higher self-esteem. Garnet is a stone of intense feelings. Many ancient civilizations used Garnet to increase awareness and bring creative powers, and this stone was often worn in the breastplate of the High Priest. Garnet is often used to improve business relationships and prevent money losses. Being the stone of commitment, Garnet will help you stay on task and complete goals.
Known as the abundance and joyful stone. Wearing it will bring you what you need and desire and will bring high energy to you throughout the day. If you have or are starting an online business, keep this stone next to your computer to increase success. If you happen to be a procrastinator, wearing Sunstone will help you stay on task.
Known as the “stone of opportunity”, Green Aventurine is the luckiest of all healing stones. Those that like to gamble,wear it as jewellery or carry a stone in your pocket, as it can improve your odds in games of chance. Aventurine can also help relieve you of your old habits and lead to new opportunities. If you try to avoid change, this stone will help you to embrace it.
With all crystals don’t forget to hold them under running water before use, holding the intention of clearing them of any unwanted energies that may stop them working well. Then, like a computer program your crystal for what you need in your business.
