Top 10 Crystals for Fall


Good morning!

Top 10 Crystals for Fall

by Andrew Pacholyk, MS L.Ac

from his exciting new book,
 Lead Us To A Place ~ your spiritual journey through life's seasons.

Fall is a time of transition. A change in the amount of light we get and changes in weather conditions can all have an effect on our mood and emotions. Crystals can play a part in making changes, improving transitions and helping us to move forward gracefully. They are a great tool to meditate and contemplate with.  Here are my top 10 choices for Fall.
Amber: Warm and inviting this actual resin from tree sap is an excellent choice for Fall. It is excellent at detoxification and protection from other people's energies. Due to its strong connection to nature and the earth, amber is a great stone for grounding your higher energies. Amber can add stability to your life. Helpful in clearing up mental chatter it can bring about a positive mental state. Also useful as a memory booster, it a good stone for studying. Amber is used for past life work, divination, and scrying. It aligns mental and emotional bodies via its deep orange and yellow color.
 Amethyst: The stone of spirituality and dream recall. Used for contentment and meditation. Provides common sense and flexibility in decisions. Native Indian cultures have used this to strengthen and enhances psychic abilities, imagery, and mind quieting. Wear when sleeping or when awake to reduce anger, impatience, and nightmares. Most effective on the Third Eye and Crown Chakra. Amethyst contains the grounding color of red with the energy of blue, which is expanding, spacious and flows with peace. Amethyst is the color that you see in the sky as twilight transitions into night. Amethyst takes you on this transition from the magic time of dusk to a conscious shift into a different place. Crossing this threshold is the lesson of humility, which amethyst can teach us. This stone can show us how to let go and trust; so that you may see beyond the cycle that consumes our attention. Amethyst is considered a Master Healing stone.
 Carnelian: This stone represents confidence, boldness, initiative, dramatic abilities, assertiveness, and outgoingness. Used for precision, analysis, stimulating appetite, encouraging celebrations and brings awareness of feelings. It is the stone of passion and sexuality and is associated with the Sacral/Spleen Chakra. This stone helps you feel anchored and comfortable with your surroundings. It provides a connection to the past or to historical events. Carnelian can improve motivation. Helps one achieve greater success in career or personal matters. Carnelian is one of the most helpful crystals for healing trauma, stress and emotional wounds that have accumulated in the etheric body or the Aura and manifesting as physical symptoms.
Copper: Excellent energy conductor! Sends and amplifies thoughts, healing, and electrical energy into the wearer's energy field. Worn next to skin, copper is known as a detoxer and soothes arthritis, rheumatism, and other inflammatory problems. Use to improve exhaustion, poor circulation and balancing energy levels. Helps stabilize the metabolism and heightens the immune system.
Hematite: This crystal is the most recommended stone for grounding and is associated with the Root Chakra, by encourages one's survival instincts. Hematite condenses scattered feelings, turns fuzziness into mental clarity, enhances concentration, memory, practicality, and helps those who study. Considered the symbol of life energy, hematite allows for more confidence, will power and boldness. Helps us adjust to being physical. A protective stone that helps bolster low self-esteem. Hematite is known to deflect negativity. In Renaissance times, it was used to restore equilibrium, bring stability and for astral protection. It brings our awareness back to the body and helps one maintain their sense of self. If worn, magnetic hematite can be placed on any traumatic injury to increase blood circulation.
Jasper: This stone is a methodical and meticulous worker of practical, down to earth solutions. It has the ability to foster and nurture. Its energy is used for grounding and protection. Considered more effective if it is used for long periods of time because it works slowly. Each color of Jasper has additional, specific qualities when used alone. Jasper is very effective when using on the Root Chakra.
Kunzite: is a powerful, high-level stone. It is used against negative energy and empowers positive and loving thoughts. Most effective on the Heart Chakra, it opens the emotional heart and spiritual heart. It represents unconditional love and compassion. Used for healing abuse/loss/addictions. Helps empower confidence, connection to our higher self and unity. Kunzite is also used on the Third Eye and Crown Chakra for the reason that it deepens altered states, emotionally and spiritually.

Petrified Wood: This "stone" is most noted in helping us to investigate past-life experiences. Makes the user more aware of nature. It is a warm earthy stone, which is used at the Root Chakra, encouraging one's survival instincts and is grounding. Petrified Wood is also believed to energize the Heart Chakra. In mythological times, petrified wood was believed to possess divine power and to this day, stands as a symbol of man's true connection to the natural world. This stone helps with mental longevity, helping to soothe emotions, generating calm and relieves stress.
Sodalite: This stone is most recognized for healing, meditation, and wisdom. This is a good stone for general communication, for the self and writing. It is used for expressing logic and ideas due to its connection with the Throat Chakra. It is also used at the Third Eye Chakra due to the fact that it can access levels of intuitive information and promote the understanding of these concepts. It is also known to enhance community relationships. Sodalite can strongly affect changes in your attitude about yourself. It helps you be more objective and less critical about ways of dealing with existence. It is a stone associated with studying.
 Sunstone: This stone is a kiss of sunshine, crystallized. Honor God, brings good luck and fortune. Energizes and empowers one's self. Warms the heart and lifts/rejuvenates the spirit. Sunstone is used for protection, life force, and grounding. Sunstone is a great stone to use with "energy vampires", or those who drain your energy from you. This includes parents, children, lovers, patients, bosses or anyone who is possessive, aggressive or overbearing. Sunstone breaks these bonds and allows light, separation, and clarity from these energies. Sunstone does great justice when placed on our power center or Solar Plexus Chakra. Sunstone is a great stone to relieve stress and overcome fear. This stone is so brilliant that it can bring optimism, happiness, and joy to anyone! Use this stone to help bring awareness to your spiritual realm and encourage the priorities of life. This is one of my favorite stones for depression. A good stone to strengthen the psyche as it promotes cheerfulness, good humor, and a benevolent temper.
