Yes, in my secret world beyond this computer screen, I’m an artist.
I spent several years of my life in College here in Northern Ontario and met some amazing people who helped me to be able to reach inside of myself and bring out my creative side. Being creative is an incredibly healing way of letting your inner thoughts be released into the universe!
An artist is not just one who paints or draws, an artist is someone who writes, or speaks.. or works with various medium that might seem non traditional to others. It might be photography, crafting, working with clay, telling stories, singing, dancing… there are no limits to what lays inside of you that you can tap into for expression.
So now let’s tie my two passions together shall we? Yes, you can use gemstones to help you to reach inside of yourself to find that creative spark!
How does that work exactly? Well, its tricky since I can’t really see inside of your brain to see how you are personally wired 🙂 So I’ll try to simplify things for you. Gemstones are again, like Trigger tools (like I talked about in my previous post about dealing with stress here in this blog). Working with crystals and gems is an ancient art that has been used for many rotations of our planet.
Gems emit an energy that you can connect to and depending on the stone type, this energy can help work with an area of change you are seeking. In this case, we’re talking today about creativity. Over time, those who have worked with gems have recorded their findings – even my own clients have gotten back to me over the decades to talk to me about how individual crystals work with them and benefit their lives.
People, just like you, have connected with particular stones for their needs and found that they do help. It has been used for so long now that others have written books about these findings and they are now being used by the masses as reference points to use for gemstone healing.
So how do I use them?
Because stones emit an energy that helps to connect (or align) with your creativity, the best method is to begin wearing a particular type of stone that really calls to you. When I say “calls to you” I mean, that emotionally you get a feeling of “OOOAHH” when you see it and you just know you want to have this in your life.
Let the stone connect with you and be a part of your creative process and be aware that it is with you on this journey. After a time, you and your stone will develop a sort of kinship or bond that you may find will help uplift your mind and spirit to connect with those energies you need for creative thinking.
We are all individuals and a stone that might work for person (a) may not work for person (b). So when choosing YOUR gem, don’t let others try to tell you what you should have. Use your instincts to pick your healing stone, do your research on what a stone can do and then, go with your hearts desire 🙂
And as always, I like to remind folks to cleanse their gemstones on a regular bases. My blog post here will fill you in on how to do so.
You can do it…. 🙂
And ps.. I use gems personally when I am suffering from writers block as well as when I’m working with paints and other artist’s media.
