Good morning, crystal lovers! In this blog post, we're going to explore the importance of a morning ritual and how you can incorporate crystals into your morning routine to start your day off on the right foot. We'll also be discussing some practices you can do to further enhance your morning ritual.
Across the world, the morning is often considered a sacred time. It's a time when the mind is fresh and the energy of the day is new and vibrant. By creating a morning routine that incorporates spiritual practices, you can tap into this energy and set a positive tone for your day.
Starting your morning with crystals can be a powerful way to set your intentions for the day ahead. Here are some of our favourite crystals to use in your morning routine:
- Clear Quartz - Clear quartz is a versatile crystal that can amplify the energy of other crystals and promote clarity and focus. It's a great choice for setting intentions and getting centred before starting your day.
- Citrine - Citrine is a bright, sunny crystal that's associated with positivity, abundance, and success. It's a great choice for promoting a can-do attitude and cultivating optimism and gratitude.
- Carnelian - Carnelian is a fiery, energising crystal that's associated with creativity, motivation, and passion. It's a great choice for getting energised and inspired at the start of your day.
- Rose Quartz - Rose quartz is a gentle, soothing crystal that's associated with love, compassion, and emotional healing. It's a great choice for promoting self-love and self-care.
- Black Tourmaline - Black tourmaline is a protective crystal that can help shield you from negative energy and promote a sense of grounding and stability. It's a great choice for those who tend to feel anxious or overwhelmed in the morning.
So, how can you incorporate crystals into your morning routine? Here are a few ideas:
MEDITATION: Meditate with your crystals - Take a few minutes to sit quietly with your chosen crystals, focusing on your intentions and visualising positive energy flowing into your body. We love to use a guided meditation - some of our favourites are from Gabby Bernstein - here is a great one for making a positive start to your morning.
DRINK CEREMONIAL CACAO: Drinking ceremonial cacao in the morning with crystals can be a potent way to set your intentions for the day ahead. The practice of cacao ceremonies has been used for centuries in indigenous cultures to promote healing and spiritual growth. By combining this practice with the use of crystals, you can infuse the cacao with the energy of the crystals and create a synergistic effect that can enhance your morning routine. You can choose crystals that resonate with your intentions for the day, and hold them while drinking the cacao to amplify their energy and bring a deeper sense of presence to your practice.

JOURNALLING: Journaling can be a powerful way to tap into your inner wisdom and set your intentions for the day ahead. By incorporating crystals that resonate with your goals and placing them near your journal, you can infuse your writing practice with their energy and create a sacred space for reflection and growth. Crystals like clear quartz or amethyst can help amplify your intuition and bring clarity to your thoughts, while stones like rose quartz or citrine can help cultivate a positive mindset and inspire creativity. By incorporating crystals into your journaling practice, you can create a beautiful ritual that supports your personal growth and helps you stay connected to your highest aspirations.
YOGA: Incorporating crystals into your morning yoga practice can bring about transformative benefits for your mind and body. The physical movements of yoga can invigorate and energise your body, while the presence of crystals can help you deepen your connection to your inner self. By selecting crystals that align with your intentions, you can enhance your practice by placing them near your mat or holding them during your practice. Crystals like black tourmaline and hematite can offer grounding and protection, while clear quartz or amethyst can stimulate your spiritual growth and deepen your meditation practice. Combining the healing properties of yoga with the powerful energy of crystals can create a powerful morning ritual that supports your overall health and wellbeing.
