June is the month we honor our fathers, as well as those graduating from academic programs. This is the time of year that supports our connection to the energy of taking action, accomplishment, and acknowledgement. It is aligned with masculine energy.
How can we balance, embrace, and nurture this masculine energy? With gemstones! There are hundreds of crystals and minerals to choose from; the key is to pick a stone to which you are attracted and make a matching thought. The masculine vibe teaches that you can accomplish anything and find the courage to do so. It also teaches about discernment and the healthy ability to set limits, to say no when that is what you want to say. Pick a few stones with these intentions associated with the masculine energy during this month of June—or any time.
The masculine vibration is the doing, business making, giving, and active principle. Everyone has both masculine and feminine energies, regardless of gender. It is a good goal to balance the masculine and the feminine vibe to have a healthy and happy life. Take a moment to honor Dad or someone who is like a father to you and feel gratitude because they helped develop this aspect within you.
Here are the top five gemstones to balance your masculine energy. These gemstones also make a great gift if you are trying to figure out what to get dear old Dad! They can be used as paperweights, a decoration, or as a worry stone. Perhaps a bracelet or a bookend made of one of these stones would fit the bill. Gift yourself with one of these. Use the matching positive thoughts associated with each stone until you notice that you've integrated the thoughts and make them the truth in your life.
It is important to have an intention and to focus on the positive so that life reflects your highest potential. Everything that is created is created through intention. We create our lives with our thoughts, actions, words, and deeds. Our intentions vibrate out into the world and return to us in the form of our personal reality.
When a gemstone is paired with an affirmation, the stone amplifies that intention. It is a tool that helps you maintain your focus on what you do want. In my work with color and crystals over the course of three decades, I've found that to use a stone most effectively, it is best to associate an intention with it. And the more information you have about the qualities associated with certain stones, the more creative you can be with using these valuable tools to improve your life.
The most important thing about working with crystals, minerals, and stones is to remember is that they are simply tools that provide you with a reminder of your intentions and goals. Just as you might light a candle to help you focus on your intention or tie a string around your finger to remember something, a gemstone can provide that same nudge. These sparkling treasures from deep within the earth can help distract you from any troubling thoughts that might be getting in the way of your progress. They remind you to focus on what you do want instead of what you don't want. Here is a good way to get started:
You can carry smaller stones around with you to stay focused on your intentions while you go about your day, or you can place them strategically around your house or workplace. In fact, there are many methods for incorporating crystals into your daily life, including:
Contemplate on balancing the masculine and feminine energies as a spiritual practice and observe the positive changes in your life. Decide how you can bring your masculine energy into balance in your life. Honor the masculine within and around you. Remember those who have filled the position of father in your life and pause for a moment of gratitude.
