September * Onyx * Chakras

September * Onyx * Chakras

You just have to love September, don't you? I truly believe it is the best month, and not just because it is my birthday month (but let's be serious, I celebrate that the whole month.) The weather starts to cool of, but still feels nice, we get apple picking, pumpkin spice lattes, and crisp Fall walks.  I've been wanting to work my way up the chakras for the crystal of the month, and September is the perfect time to start. It's a great time to get grounded, and balance your root chakra, as we head into Fall. To do that...


Citrine & The Solar Plexus Chakra

Citrine & The Solar Plexus Chakra

I think of the solar plexus chakra as your inner fire. It's the spark in your gut that encourages you to "do more." It's your creative center, and your will power.

Citrine's harmonious relationship with your solar plexus, is what makes it perfect for finding your purpose, and bringing abundance into your life.

Let's be serious, sometimes the everyday sucks. You can find so many memes on the internet poking fun about how much "adulting" sucks.

Nothing is going to change the job, but using citrine to find more joy, can change your attitude about that job, and may see an opportunity to change from a different perspective.  What is something that you can do in 5 minutes, that will bring you more joy each morning? Is it a cup of tea? Is it dancing or yoga? Is...

We've spent the last few months releasing suppressed subconscious beliefs (with agate in May,) and then practicing self-love (Rose Quartz in June.) Now that we've cleared a lot of the "uck" from our mindset, we can shift our focus to manifesting our joy and abundance. How I see it, once you are pouring love inward, that will start to radiate outward. When I think of radiating happiness and joy, I think of citrine. Citrine is a yellow form of quartz. Citrine encourages creativity and motivation. It encourages sharing what you have, as well as helps you hold onto your wealth....


Guest Post: Crystal Gray of the Yoga Goddess Academy's Tools for Self-Love

Lauren Malmquist

To keep with our theme of rose quartz & self-love for June, I reached out to Crystal Gray, to invite her to guest post. Crystal was my yoga teacher, and founded the Yoga Goddess Academy. She has such authentic posts about yoga, self-love, and growth, that I knew I wanted her voice her on the blog. Check out her tools for self love: I never really thought about self-love too much until recently. It was always kind of in passing and I’d brush it off without really thinking about it because I thought that it wasn’t something I needed to...
