Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Tess Whitehurst, author of a number of books, including Magical Housekeeping, You Are Magical, and the new Unicorn Magic.
Both crystals and unicorns are of the earth, and both also transcend the earthly plane to align us with the Otherworld, the realm of Faerie, and the eternal consciousness of Spirit. But some crystals are particularly aligned with unicorn energy, making them uniquely relevant to those of us drawn to the magic and wonder of the unicorn realm.
Here are 7 gemstones that will help you attune to the purifying, healing, and courage-inspiring realm of the unicorns.
|Amethyst is a purple-colored quartz with a soothing and spiritual vibration. It’s calming and stress-relieving and supports a deep and restful night’s sleep. Amethyst also helps heal addictions and addictive behaviors. Like unicorns, amethyst is aligned with the crown chakra, which opens up our connection the the realm of dreams and the Divine.|
|Apophyllite is a starlight-colored, bright, clear-white stone that often appears as a tiny little luminous pyramid. When you meditate with it, it can help you enter into other worlds and dimensions, including the fairy, unicorn, astral, and angelic realms.|
|Aquamarine is reminiscent of pale blue tropical oceans and pristine alpine streams. It purifies mind, body, and spirit, and helps relieve any sense of uncleanliness or toxicity. This mirrors the unicorn’s fabled ability to instantly and completely transform any poison or noxious pond into sparkling, clear, drinkable water.|
|Larimar is an opaque, vibrantly aqua-toned stone that looks like the brightest blue sky after its been purified by a heavy rain or strong wind. Simply glimpsing a larimar can infuse you with deep and abiding joy. Quite like a unicorn sighting, larimar helps bring back our joy when it seems to be lost. It also reminds us to prioritize joy every day, and to spread it to everyone we meet.|
|Lepidolite is a sparkly, lavender-hued stone that is perhaps the answer to the question, if a unicorn were a crystal, what would it be? Like unicorns, lepidolite reminds us to love freely, purely, and deeply. It also attunes us to the inner knowing that we are lovable, adorable, and deserving of every wonderful thing. Carrying or wearing it helps us draw true love and lasting friendship.|
|Peridot is a pale, grass-green crystal. It’s as serene and comforting as a late summer day. Unicorns are perfectly harmonized with the magic and wisdom of herbs, flowers, trees, and the seasons, and peridot helps us harmonize with these things in a similar way. It also helps strengthen physical and emotional health, healthy habits, and feelings of grounding, inspiration, and interconnection.|
|Spirit quartz, also known as drusy, is a quartz covered with lots of smaller crystal points, resulting in a breathtaking, sparkling effect. It appears in clear, amethyst, aqua aura, and angel aura varieties, and all can help foster a harmonious sense of community and interconnection. Additionally, just like unicorns, spirit quartz boosts energy, creativity, inspiration, wonder, vitality, and joy.|
To work with one of these crystals in order to gain greater access to the wisdom and healing power of unicorns, first cleanse it in sunlight and/or running water. Then hold it in your right hand and set the intention to align with unicorn consciousness and to open up to the magic of the realm. Next, carry it, wear it, sleep with it under your pillow, or place it on your altar. You can even create an altar specifically for the purpose, by placing an attractive image of a unicorn as a focal point, along with any other altar items you may like to include such as candles, flowers, or offerings (hint: unicorns like cinnamon sticks, apples, and sweet-smelling flowers).
Did you work with any of these crystals to attune your energy to the realm of the unicorns? Or do you plan to? Please share your thoughts and experiences in the comments below.
