Happy almost-Thanksgiving, readers! Liz here, and today I thought it would be prudent to get Violet Mooney’s take on the best crystals to take with you on those family visits–especially the ones that might be, shall we say, less harmonious. Read on for the stones Violet always has on hand when she’s interacting with her mother, Fiona, especially during a tense situation…
Clear quartz is a powerful, high vibe stone that not only gets you crystal clear on all your “stuff,” it is able to absorb and release negative energy. It also amplifies good energy, so it’s a must-have on the holiday table.
Turquoise is great for self-healing, and for people who want to prioritize their own health and wellness. It clears negative energy and gives off peaceful, serene vibes at the same time, so it’s a great one to wear into battle–literally. In ancient times, warriors would wear it into battle. So if turkey day can get contentious in your house, this is a stone to bring!
Ocean jasper. Like all the jasper stones, ocean jasper is calming and grounding. This stone is straight up happy and positive, and trust me, you want it with you if you’re in need of ditching any pessimistic feelings.
Rose quartz is the go-to stone for love and romance, but it’s also a great stone to bring self-love and healing vibes to the party. It also helps give you clarity about other people. This stone is all about the heart chakra, and helps you attract unconditional love. And yes, that can be from Mom, Dad or Grandpa too.
Citrine is one of my (as well as Violet’s) favorite stones for positivity, joy and happiness. The orange color alone makes me happy, which is no surprise because it’s literally like you’re bringing rays of sunshine into your life when you work with citrine. For all you writers out there, it’s also a stone of creativity – and what writer doesn’t get happier when the muse visits?
And, if those aren’t enough, take a black obsidian along. It’s Violet’s favorite protection stone, and it shields against negativity.
For those who celebrate, have a happy, safe, and peaceful Thanksgiving!
