My Top 10 Crystals for Autumn
Fall is a time of transition. A change in the amount of light we get and changes
in weather conditions can all have an affect on our mood and emotions. Crystals
can play a part in making changes, improving transitions and helping us to move
forward gracefully. Here are my top 10 choices for Fall.
1. Amber: Warm and inviting this actual resin from tree sap is an excellent
choice for Fall. It is excellent at detoxification and protection from
radiation, especially x-rays, sun, computers, airport, planes and other people's
energies. Due to its strong connection to nature and the earth, amber is a great
stone for grounding our higher energies. Amber can add stability to your life.

about a positive mental state. Also useful as a memory aid, which makes it a
good stone for studying. Amber is used for past life work, divination and

and meditation. Provides common sense and flexibility in decisions. Strengthens
and enhances psychic abilities, imagery and mind quieting. Wear when sleeping or
when awake to reduce anger, impatience, and nightmares. Most effective on the
Brow and Crown Chakra. Amethyst contains the grounding color of red with the
energy of blue, which is expanding, spacious and flow of 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; surrender
so that you may see beyond the cycle that consumes your attention; give it all
up, so that you can receive more; and bow, that you may become a part of the
greater whole. Amethyst is considered a Master Healing stone.

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.
