Hi. I've been enjoying the crystals I've received from your site. I was wondering if you could suggest a crystal to give as a gift. This would be for a friend, someone who is in her head a lot, something of a scientist. She's intellectual, very detail oriented, very good with numbers, analyzing stuff. I think something that would balance her out a little. Maybe something to meditate with. I think she is trying to find her spiritual niche, but is trying to analyze it too much, if you know what I mean. Maybe needs to let go a little? Maybe ground? My first thoughts were a nice chunk of rose quartz or cool-looking clear quartz cluster. Can you think of anything else?
What a wonderful gift :) Your intuition of Rose Quartz and/or a lovely quartz cluster are both great ideas! Here are a few more gift recommendations for the analytical personality.
Dalmatian Stone is a wonderful stone to work with for those who are overly analytical. It helps the over-analyzer to ground and center all bodies (physical, emotional, intellectual, etc) to maintain balance and connection with the etheric energies.
Meditation is simply the art of "being still," yet sometimes this can be a challenge in itself! Our mind continues to catalog the events of our day. We are distracted, finding that this one-minded focus is quite the challenge to accomplish. We may have a hard time turning off this chatter. Do not become discouraged! That is why Meditation is called a "practice" or "discipline". Keep at it! There are dozens of crystals that can help here. For now, let me share three crystals that can assist in attaining and maintaining that space of quiet — Amethyst, Sugilite and Tanzanite.
Amethyst creates a sense of inner peace, connecting you to the higher vibrations of Source while turning down the volume on the distracting conversations of the mind. Amethyst opens and activates the Crown Chakra, allowing easier access to the Divine.
Sugilite opens the crown and higher chakras, which help to enhance spiritual awareness and spiritual wisdom, promoting a higher state of consciousness. Once in this higher consciousness, the chatter of the mind will simply move to the background where it is not a constant distraction.
Tanzanite creates a stillness both within and without. Tanzanite helps you to reach a higher state of consciousness — a place of peace and solitude. It helps the mind to just "be" without all of the analysis and chatter.
Sodalite unites intelligence and logic with intuition effectively bringing information from the highest source down to the physical level. Sodalite is highly effective when used to deepen meditation.
I am sure whatever you choose will be the perfect gift and a wonderful way to deepen the connection between friends.
With love and crystal blessings,
