Crystals for Communication
By Rachel Niemczyk
“Say the right words with the right emphasis at the right time…oh, you can make men weep, or cry with joy. Change them. You can change people’s minds just with words. . .”
—David Tennant as the Doctor, Doctor Who, “The Shakespearean Code”
Words have power. With the right words you can clearly express yourself, brighten a person’s day, or give unique insight into a situation. You can make a positive impact on somebody’s life, encourage people to reach for their dreams, give support to a friend, or make a wonderful impression that leads to many future opportunities. The wrong words, on the other hand, can lead to confusion, damage a relationship, or inaccurately express your inner thoughts. Sometimes lacking the vocabulary to speak up, defend your position on a topic, or express yourself can be devastating. Every word you speak and write, whatever the situation, represents you. It communicates to others what you want them to know, what you think, and how you feel.
Yet how often is it difficult for us to find the right words to express our thoughts, our emotions? Communication is one of hardest things to do on this Earth because it is so easy to be misunderstood and so hard to truly express our inner truth. This article lists a few crystals and their helpful vibrations to aid with both written and verbal communication. Hopefully they will help you to speak your truth no matter what the occasion is.
