Let's all hold Neil Gaiman's words to our heart for 2020:
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.
So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”

Crystal Talk in January! New Year, New Beginnings and Goals!
I admit that I am happy January 2020 has arrived and I'm quite excited for this new chapter. I always look at each new year as a new chapter in my life book. What will it hold? Surprises, tears, lessons and frustrations I am sure but also, I am now older to know that I can make it a good chapter if I want to. I don't have to always fight the bad or ignore the good.
This January I share with you the Herkimer Diamond. Not a diamond and technically just a double terminated Clear Quartz but it's called a "Herkimer Diamond" because they are found in only one place: County of Herkimer, NY, USA. Now as I mentioned, they are double terminated Clear Quartz pieces, but when you work with them, there are monumentally different from Master Clear Quartz.
With January being all about new beginnings, new goals and you, why not work with a little Herkimer energy this month (and year!)?
Herkimers are wonderful for new beginnings. I find it has a distinct masculine energy which is good if you, like me, need a good butt kick to get going again every time you fall off the wagon. It's a crystal that is going to fill you with happy, high vibe energy which in turn is going to charge and energize you!
Now this is great for any new goals you want to work on, but this energy can wane as we all know and that's why you KEEP working on it. Just like you want to keep working on your goals - keep them small, break them down into baby steps, check in every month with how you're progressing and if you're not, work out another route with baby steps. Nothing is ever achieved in a month and Herkimer can walk with you every day, every month, through every new something (goal, day, month, year, etc).
What just came to me when I wrote this piece is that being double terminated, Herkimer can act as the perfect channel or line to the Universe. Use it to send your intentions to the Universe but you can allow it to fill you up with Universal energy or guidance too!
If you feel like you need support with a new beginning and the Herkimer energy is calling to you, you can get 20% off our selected favorite Herkimers by clicking here.
Happy 2020 to the beautiful person you are who's always working on yourself,
This month we have two, awesome articles to share with you:
Nicole Marie is back this January to share with us a grid for manifestation! Fantastic when January is filled with all that manifestation energy! Also, Krista Mitchell has allowed us to share an article of hers that offers a ritual for clearing inner resistance. It's perfect for when we are stuck and we aren't always sure why or how to move past it! So let's dive in shall we!
Each new year sees many of us making resolutions and setting goals for the year to come. It also sees most of us abandon these and stress over keeping our promises to ourselves. Crystal grids are an excellent way to help you achieve your desires because when we build a grid and place it somewhere it will be seen daily, it reminds us of our intentions and keeps us in the state of mind we built the grid for. Thus, building a manifestation grid is an excellent way to keep you in a motivated state of mind and remind yourself that you can have your dreams.
This grid uses a Flower of Life pattern (choose any pattern that feels right to you). I chose Clear Quartz as my center stone, because its properties and its possibilities are limitless, just like your dreams. For the surrounding stones, I chose Garnet for the first circle for confidence and power, as well as to amplify the effects of the other stones in the grid. For the next circle, Carnelian for motivation, success, and focus. For the final circle, I chose Citrine for prosperity, abundance, joy, and generosity. The pattern I placed these stones in remind me of dropping a stone into a calm lake. The ripples grow as they move outward, just like I wish to see happen with my big dreams and big goals. The colors also move from colorless to dark to light – moving my goals from the shadows of my mind to the light of day, manifesting in the real world with real, physical results. Happy New Year!

It’s mind-boggling to think that there’s a part of us inside that fights us on making positive changes in our lives.
If something’s going to make our lives better, happier, healthier, why can’t we just do it? What gets in the way?
Put your hand up if you’ve ever experienced this: there’s a change you’ve wanted or needed to make in your life for a long-azz time, but you just seem stuck or held in the same old place or repeating pattern.
You just can’t seem to make the change happen.
It could be losing weight, changing jobs or careers, shifting your pattern of relationships, breaking a bad habit, exercising more, eating better, creating more work/life balance, etc.
What you are experiencing, my friend, is inner resistance.
For whatever reason, something deep, down inside you just won’t budge. There will be excuses, obstacles, refusal, denial. Vagueness or a “lack of clarity” is one of resistance’s favorite defenses.
And two, five, ten years later, you’ll still be stuck in the same old place or pattern.
Resistance, ultimately, is a machination of your shadow self. Somewhen in your childhood you experienced a trauma or an upset, or you learned that in order to get something you had to behave in a certain way, and that programmed a belief in your psyche.
Committed to that belief, you’ll resist anything that goes against it. The program has been written, and it will keep playing out through your entire adult life.
UNLESS, you rewrite it, and rewrite it you CAN!
But first, you have to work through the resistance.
First, accept and surrender. Resisting resistance is futile. When you accept your situation, and surrender to the resistance, you get energy flowing again. Hold Mangano Calcite, Moonstone, or Rose Quartz in your receptive (non-dominant hand). Breathe deeply but gently, and then meditate for at least 1 minute. Consciously decide to accept and surrender.
Identify the cause of your resistance. The key thing to remember is that resistance is seeking to serve a purpose, and inevitably, its purpose is in an effort to either protect you or provide for you in some way. Hold Apache Tear in your receptive hand and Black Moonstone or Black Obsidian in your dominant hand. These crystals help bring aspects of your shadow up to the light of your consciousness so that they can be seen and understood. Meditate for at least 1 minute, and then approach the resistance from a place of curiosity. Ask your inner self “How is this resistance keeping me safe?”, or “What am I gaining from this resistance?” Let the responses float up from your consciousness as opposed to trying to reason them out.
Form a new, positive, empowering belief. Once you’ve identified the cause of your resistance, you’re in a position to choose differently. Hold Black Kyanite or Clear Calcite in your receptive hand to help clear any residual blocked energy, and Hematite in your dominant hand for fortitude, grounding, and commitment. Now close your eyes, and focus on the change you’d like to make. See or feel how it would benefit you, form some positive associations through visualization or sense memory. When you feel you’ve achieved this, take a deep breath, and imagine it settling into your psyche, forming a new, positive belief.
Keep your crystals on your altar or in a sacred place to remind you of your process, and so that you can connect with their energy when you feel the need. Or, you can clear their energy, and work with them again to help you address a different issue of resistance in your life.
