Updated on July 9, 2020

I have studied crystal healing for many years and have studied and been attuned to reiki levels one, two, and masters.

Imbolc is also known as Candlemas or Brigid's Day. This point on the wheel of the year focuses on the return of spring. It marks the transformation of the goddess from crone to maiden. Celebrations on this day mark the successful passage through winter and the anticipation of a new agricultural year. Signs of new life are beginning to show on the earth as the days slowly begin to lengthen and the suns warmth returns. This is a time of the year for new beginnings, renewal, growth, preparation, and planning for the future.

Crystals can be used to enhance our energy and support us during this phase. They can also be used in encouraging the growth of plants and crops to boost fertility.

This pretty, purple stone is a good choice for anyone that has difficulty accepting new ideas or is afraid of the change. Amethyst supports us throughout the decision-making process by bringing common sense to the forefront of our minds and providing spiritual insight. It is a very beneficial stone to use in meditation due to its strong connection with spiritual matters and ability to help us focus scattered thoughts. Amethyst can be used to improve motivation and in setting realistic goals for yourself.

Peridot is an effective crystal for supporting us through the process of releasing guilt and other burdens from the past and in leaving negative patterns behind. It can help you to see the lessons in your past experiences and mistakes and move past these, leaving jealousy, resentment, guilt, and anger behind. This process can make it easier to move forward in life and in understanding your destiny. Peridot can be used in learning to take responsibility for your life and the choices you have made, even when they ended badly.

3. Moss Agate

This is a stabilising stone that will help anyone to see the beauty that is present around them. It has strong connections to abundance and will benefit anyone who works with plants or in agriculture. Moss agate can be planted in fields to help to ensure the success of the year’s crop. Crystals can also be planted in vegetable patches, gardens, and plant pots to keep the plants healthy and productive. Sickly plants may also benefit from a moss agate crystal being buried close to them.

Moss agate works like a magnet to draw abundance of all kinds. For example, it can be used to draw in new customers or to help a new business get started on good footing. Keep the crystals in your workspace and in areas concerned with the business such as filing cabinets or cash registers. Wearing or carrying a moss agate crystal in your pocket while working on business matters such as accounts, spreadsheets or advertising is also considered to be beneficial.
