Stone Medicine: Smoky Quartz

I have been feeling really drained lately... I feel pulled in a thousand directions, school is picking up and I feel so off balanced trying to juggle everything that I want and need to do. My diet is taking a turn for the worse because that has become last on my list like always. And of course, daily cups of espresso and caffeine make me stay up way too late. OY!

So I take my Smoky quartz and keep him by my side. And there is relief. I remember to breathe. Mind you, crystal healing is not a quick fix- you do have to put in work. But you feel it on a soul level. 

Smoky quartz is grounding and protective. As Clear quartz rules the realm of the higher chakras, on the opposite end of the spectrum, Smoky quartz rules the root. As clear quartz is the ultimate healing stone, it is said that smoky quartz is best grounding stone!

It also has the ability to transmute negative energy in your surroundings. This is a great detoxing stone and space clearing stone- placing one in each corner of your room/home can help clear the energy. To magnify the protection and clearing energy, I have been pairing it with Amethyst and carrying them with me and meditating with them everyday this week.

If you want to magnify practicality, organization, and grounding energy pair your Smoky quartz with Obsidian, Jet, Black Tourmaline, or Hematite.

What do you do when you are feeling drained? What helps to ground you? Most of my birth chart, and Ayurvedic dosha (thanks to Lindsay's Tea Consultation at Whole Body Alchemy) has little earth energy, if at all! I need all the grounding advice I can get!

After releasing a big project, I have heard you can go through an unsettling phase after. I sure am. The phase has a theme of ungrounded, scattered energy. Everything is scattered: my thoughts, emotions, my clothes, and my energy is a big blah. I have been floating in the ether for so long, my soul is not use to Earth at the moment. And to be completely honest, Earth has always felt like foreign ground to me; I believe we all have themes and lessons we must learn in this lifetime, and one of mine is Earth Medicine. My lower chakras, pertaining to my physical body (mostle root and sacral) have always been imbalanced, so it is time to bring back some nourishment, me thinks. It has been far too long Marissa.

Samhain was not the best for me this year, a lot of issues surfaced, and it made me realize how much I need a clearing out in all areas of my life. And it needs to start with me, in my body, in my mind, in my heart and soul. The sacred sage bundle (above) and a beautiful set of stones (above is Garnet) is exactly what my soul needed this morning. I ordered this set from Sage Goddess and it was one of the first things I woke up to. The sage bundle has rosemary and rose petals and smells absolutely divine. I have been carrying it around with me all day just smelling and savoring it. I even smudged the inside of my car and it got way too smoky in there, haha, lesson learned! It is healing to say the least. And Garnet is a stone of the root chakra so I have been keeping myself grounded.

A nice start off to November, I think. Keep yourselves grounded loves and remember releasing is  apart of life (more of a reminder to me). Love to you all this November <3
