Birthing something new.
Bringing a new reality to light.
Turning a new chapter.
The beginning of something new is always a little scary and a little exciting. There are so many unknowns when setting out on a new path that most of us find ourselves full of nerves and anxiety.
Entering uncharted waters is an essential part of life. If we don’t start new things, we don’t progress, we don’t experience, we don’t grow, frankly, we don’t live.
When the time comes to enter a new phase, you’ll feel a bit apprehensive. The start of something new is always the ending of something old, which can be quite bittersweet depending on what that old thing is.
However, if you don’t just step off the ledge and dive in, there’s a good chance you’ll get stuck. You need to embrace your inner witch and grab hold of your strength so that you can enter the unknown of new beginnings.
The good news is, you’re not alone as you get started on this new path. You can keep crystals with you always to bring you comfort, calming, grounding, and overall support.
There are many healing crystals with grounding, supporting, and calming properties. Learning which crystals to use as you embark on new beginnings will help you prepare for, and get started on, your journey.
You’re off on a new journey with a crystal in your pocket and one around your neck. You grab hold of them and feel the energy coursing through you, reminding you that you’re just fine.
It doesn’t matter what your new beginning holds; it could be a job, a relationship, an adventure, or simply a new year. Whatever it is, it’s a powerful moment in your life that’s filled with change and will help you grow.
Keeping your crystals with you physically or storing them around your house/car/office, can provide you with the support you need as you begin this journey. While there are many emotions you can feel during this beginning, each crystal has different properties to aid you throughout the process.
These are the best crystals that I’ve found for when you’re venturing into the unknown and headed into a new beginning:
The clear quartz is a transparent stone that promotes clarity. When you use this crystal, it will help to cut through any fog and produce clear thoughts about where you’re headed and what you are hoping to manifest through this new beginning.
Anytime you start something new, it’s essential to have clarity and to know what you’d like to come from the venture. With clear quartz, you can feel at ease as you gaze into the future and determine your intentions.
Meditate with clear quartz by picturing a light shining down onto your crown chakra. This light penetrates your mind, giving it wisdom and awareness.
Labradorite is an iridescent crystal with a beautiful, dark color and streaks of metallic yellows, blues, reds, and greens running through it. It is a stone of transformation, which is perfect for those times when things are changing; something ending, something beginning.
Labradorite will help to open your mind, deepen your view, and expand your intuition. The crystal will empower you as you begin your journey, helping you feel the strong energy and trust your own judgment.
Keep labradorite on you as you go about your day or meditate with the crystal, placing it on your crown chakra to bring awareness.
More than anything else, new life is the foundation of new beginnings. The rainbow moonstone is a crystal of new life, as it is the stone of fertility.
It radiates hope, protection, and sends forth goddess energy. As you begin walking your new path, the rainbow moonstone will be your guiding light.
Filled with shining rainbow colors, the rainbow moonstone is one of my favorite stones for new beginnings. Place it on your sacral chakra and picture a bright orange light expanding over you.
You can also hold the stone in your palms and visualize your desire to begin. The crystal will prepare you and set you free to begin with a feeling of security and confidence.
Smoky quartz is a darker stone that promotes grounding, release, and security. As you embark on a new journey, it’s important to feel at ease, grounded in place, and confident about your next steps.
Any negativity that you feel about the new phase in life will be released as you use the stone. It will also help you to let go of the things in your past that are ending as the new beginnings take root.
With smoky quartz resting on your solar plexus chakra, visualize roots moving down from your navel, out of your feet, and into the earth. Picture your grounding, picture being rooted, as you breathe in the security that you are on the right path and everything will be okay.
Wear smoky quartz around your neck for continual grounding energy and support as you say goodbye to what was and embrace what is to come.
Citrine is a healing crystal that promotes joy, peace, harmony, and happiness. Honestly, it promotes everything we need to feel when we’re starting something new.
This crystal’s energy cuts through the fear and apprehension, moving us straight to the heart. It reminds us why, it helps us grab hold of the excitement over our new journey and to feel at ease.
Instead of feeling unsure and pessimistic, citrine helps us enter our new phase with optimism and anticipation. It uplifts us and helps us find the confidence to move forward.
Placing the crystal on our solar plexus chakra, visualize a consuming light and energy taking root. Citrine activates the chakra, filling you with power and inner strength for your journey.
There are many ways that you can use your crystals as you seek to find peace on your new journey. Meditation and chakra activation are one of the deepest and best ways to experience each crystal’s full effects.
You can also carry your crystals with you by keeping them in your pocket, around your neck, or in your car. Place them in areas of your home and set them with affirmation and intentions so that they are constantly releasing the energy you need.
Make sure you’re using your crystals daily, as consistency is key to experience the deepness of their energy. Remind yourself of truths as you start your new venture to feel at ease, confident, and happy.
