Observing Father's Day with Crystals
By Deborah Elaine
Father’s Day is an emotional day for many people, but there is quite a spectrum of emotions that can come up with this annual tribute to dads. Whether you will be honoring an inspiring dad, mourning a dad who has passed, or longing for an unknown father, your crystals can be helpful in your observance of the day.
If your father appreciates crystals (or like some dads, tolerates them), a crystal gift like Black Onyx or Black Obsidian in a strong shape like a tower might be appreciated. A child could even add a “World’s Best Dad” card to it to make it a crystal trophy of sorts.
For fathers who are in need of strength and protection while they serve the Armed Forces, sending them Hematite or meditating with Hematite to send them strength and protection energies would be fitting.
If you are remembering a father who has passed on, Rose Quartz may help you with your grief. Programming Rose Quartz to send love to your father and leaving it at his graveside is a way to give the gift of healing and love that can reach him through time and space. You could also create a grid of crystals that make you think of your father’s personality and send love to him through that grid. Remember that crystals can cross boundaries of time and space. Trust that your loving intentions will be received.
Some of you may long for the ideal fatherly energies of strength, wisdom, and protection that you may not have received as children. Petrified Wood combines the energy of ancient trees with the energy of Quartz which slowly replaced the organic material of the tree as it fossilized over millennia. This energy is grounding, protective, and simple but powerful.
However you choose to Honor your father this Father’s Day, be kind to yourself and to him. Walk in love and gratitude for the lessons you’ve learned and the ones yet to be learned from your connection to this man. ~Blessings, Debbie
