Cerridwen Greenleaf, author of Mystical Crystals, has written a new blog post on various crystals and the incredible benefits they can bring to your life.
I am sure you will come to find this to be true: certain crystals can be true touchstones in your life and bring multitudinous benefits, both emotional and spiritual. Find spots in your home or office where you can incorporate them each and every day. Whether it is a shrine, your nightstand, or stacked in a corner on your desk, a sort of crystal cairn. This can be your special corner of the world where you renew and connect with your spiritual center.
Picking up and holding your touchstones can be one of the most soul-nourishing small acts of self-care you can do.
