Matters of the mind By Guest Writer Citrine Sunflower

A few friends have recently spoken to me about their low moods and feeling that they can’t achieve anything for one reason or another. I felt it necessary to write something about this because let’s face it, I think we have all felt that way at some point in our lives.

Raise your hand if you have been guilty of, in the past or presently, holding in negative emotions, thoughts and memories which are heavily burdening to you which you do not want to share with anyone else... and breathe! *Raising my hand*

It’s awful isn’t it, constant reminders of what ever it is that has happened are everywhere, no one would understand right? If you share your thoughts people will think you are crazy right?

You’re better off not bothering to try for that new job because what’s the point, you’re low in mood, miserable and you’re not intelligent enough anyway because Joe Bloggs told you so, you may as well do nothing because you’ll only screw things up anyway....right?


Don’t let other peoples actions and or words get in the way of you and your future goals and aspirations, don’t stop achieving ever! You can do this!

Confidence is key but to get from this stepping stone to the ‘Confidence stepping stone’ is a long way to go isn’t it?


It’s a mere stones throw away..... or a Crystals throw away... actually don’t throw stones or Crystals, it’s not a good idea but I was talking metaphorically.

What I’m saying is you can do some work on yourself by working with some crystals to manipulate your current energy in a positive way. I did!

If I can do it, you can too!

So, where do we start? Perhaps with an affirmation board which is totally not crystal related but it sure is helpful. Start by cutting out pictures of what it is you may want to achieve, you can draw if you like or even just write or paint words on to a large piece of paper or even a canvas. If you want that job then write it down, that job is going to probably mean more money, write it down, more money probably means that you can save up for that holiday you wanted to go on, cut a picture out of the place and stick it to your board.

Put the board somewhere where you can see it everyday, what ever the topic, you will be able to see what you can achieve. 

Now lets start on the crystals! That’s important too.

Sometimes we don’t want to talk to others about how we are feeling inside but sometimes it’s actually better for you to share, only the information which is safe for you to share of course. The crystals to help you along with this are the Crystals related to the throat chakra, they’ll really help you to get to healing and chatting.

To name a few:

 There are so many Crystals and an array of issues which they could help you with. Perhaps too many to mention here, however, I’ll cover a few Chakra areas:

Heart Chakra

Rose Quartz

For matters of the heart and self love (confidence is raised when you learn to love yourself just the way you are) I would go with Rose Quartz, Rubelite, Rhodonite or even Aventurine.

Root Chakra


To ground those negative energies which are heavy on your shoulders and clogging up your mind try Black Tourmaline, Garnet or even Obsidian

Crown Chakra


For Matters of the mind – try some Amethyst to sooth those negative thoughts or to gain clarity, Selenite should also help here.


Solar Plexus

Let's take a look at the Crystals which will help you to gain confidence in your self, happiness and feel like you can achieve. They are the stones related to your Solar Plexus.

These are:


These are the motivational crystals, the ones which will help you to feel upbeat, they will raise your vibrations and give you that ‘get up and go’ feeling!

You can achieve anything you want to achieve, you just have to believe in yourself and work towards healing the parts of you which have suffered for a while, get those chakras cleansed and get the energy flowing fluidly.

Note down changes to yourself once you have worked with a few crystals. I have a crystal diary which I note everything down in, it comes in quite useful at times, like a recipe book only for Crystals.

Don’t let any body tell you that you can’t do something, don’t even let yourself tell you that either.

Why not try out some meditations with these crystals as well, really soak up the loving energies from the stones the Earth gave you.

I hope you achieve everything you set your mind to, prepare yourselves and Good Luck

In love and light
