The New Year is a perfect time to reevaluate what the past year has taught us and what we wish to bring into the new one. The year 2021 in numerology is a 5 year (2+0+2+1), and this number symbolizes curiosity, freedom, change and possibilities.
In order to assist you with the challenges and opportunities that 2021 may bring, I have chosen the following five crystals that can serve as allies on your journey throughout this year. Use them in meditation, put them in a prominent place in your home, or simply carry one, or all five, as needed.
The 5 Crystals for this year
Labradorite – stone of magic and a powerful protector. Labradorite creates a shielding force throughout the aura and strengthens natural energies from within. It facilitates visionary experiences and allows one’s innate magical powers to surface. Labradorite can help enhance abilities such as intuition, clairvoyance, telepathy, and assist in communication with higher guides and spirits. Labradorite tempers the shadow side of our personality and the traits and actions that usually rob us of our energy.
When meditating, hold a piece of Labradorite in your hand and visualize its positive and healing energies flowing through you. Use it to connect to your Higher knowing when making decisions.
Lapis Lazuli – ancient stone highly favored by royalty and seen as a symbol of honor, spirit, and vision. Lapis carries the vibration of wisdom and truth. It encourages honesty of the spirit, and in the spoken and written word. It reveals inner truths and promotes self-awareness and the acceptance of that knowledge. Lapis Lazuli can help you express yourself without holding back or compromising your truth. As a stone of deep communication, it can help bring harmony in all relationships.
You can use Lapis Lazuli in meditation to find your strength and confidence and see all the good qualities within yourself. You can also visualize its indigo light going out to the world to bring the energy of truth and wisdom to the collective.
Moonstone – stone of the Divine Feminine, connecting us to the nurturing, loving and caring part that exists in all of us. In ancient times it was thought to help with prophecy, clearing the mind to reach wise decisions and keep the heart and mind in touch with each other. Moonstone opens the heart to the acceptance of love and is the ultimate crystal for creation.
When meditating with Moonstone, you will feel yourself falling into a natural rhythm, you will be renewed with a deep positive energy which will inspire you to follow your heart through difficult decisions.
Rose Quartz – stone of Unconditional Love, for ourselves and others. Rose Quartz helps dissolve the sorrows, worries, fears, and resentments the heart has suffered and replaces it with healing, comfort, and love.
You can use Rose Quartz in meditation whenever you need to give unconditional love to yourself or send it out to others. Hold the rose quartz in your hand and visualize a beautiful pink light radiating all around you starting from your heart center. Once you have been filled with this love you can send it out to others for Heart healing "as needed and allowed" by the recipients.
Aventurine – stone of Opportunity, considered the luckiest of all crystals, especially for manifesting prosperity and wealth. Aventurine is also known for its healing vibration, it balances the emotional body, calms nervousness, anger, and irritation and helps guide one toward inner harmony. It inspires a feeling of lightness, and stimulates a renewed sense of optimism, joy, and hope. It is a reaffirming stone, especially during times of change or upheaval, and can be the emotional anchor one needs to remain stable and firmly grounded.
Meditate with Aventurine to call to yourself what you need at the moment, whether it’s healing, prosperity, serenity or the availability of an opportunity to enhance your life.
This new year has the energetics to bring endless possibilities for healing, transformation and growth. Many of us have been recalibrated and rebooted in 2020 in preparation to move us to the next level. The “ground” has been primed to receive the seeds we are about to sow in 2021 so be aware of your thoughts, feelings and actions.
As the saying goes, “as you sow, so shall you reap” therefore be mindful that whatever you put your time, talent and energy into is what you get back. Wishing you a wonderful harvest.
Love, Peace and Blessings for 2021
