I never thought that it would happen to me. I watched it happen to others and empathized with the urge to just give in to the cold, dark days that make you want to forego your normal routine. While it is natural to rest during the winter months, it can be a challenge for most of us to give in and let go of our busy schedules. It is very healthy and beneficial to change your routine and “play hooky” from your life every once and a while. But you want that rebellion to come from a place of fun and whimsy and not because your current circumstances are depleting your energy. Here are some ideas to help when you feel overwhelmed and tired of it all.
Charge your water with Green Tourmaline. Green Tourmaline has so much fiery, aggressive, masculine energy that it cannot help but revive your spirit. I keep a bottle of water in my refrigerator with a Green Tourmaline bracelet on it. I drink it in the morning and it fuels my energy for the rest of the day.
Change your light bulbs. I know this sounds goofy but I recently ran out of light bulbs and could only find those that simulate Daylight. It is amazing how they have completely changed the energy in my home. Every room feels brighter and lighter and my crystals love them. Just try one and see if it doesn't make a difference.
Carry and/or wear Tiger Eye. Powerful Tiger Eye gives you courage and strengthens your willpower. Whether you use Brown, Red or Blue, it can help you trust yourself and that inner voice that will let you know when to keep going and when to stop. Carry all three with you for a day and see how it feels.
Try something new. There is nothing more exciting than doing something different. Maybe you always wanted to try a dance class or learn how to make jewelry. Now is a great time to go for it and many places offer free trials. You will feel happier doing something that you love.
Surround yourself with Clear Quartz. Clear Quartz chases away any negative energy, increases the positive vibrations and draws in more light. It will brighten everything, including your mood and outlook.
