Crystal of 2020: Let Go of Resistance with Tourmalinated Quartz

It can be difficult to know how to let go of resistance, and even if you know how, it can be difficult to actually do. But letting go of resistance is crucial to making any big shifts in life, and even more crucial to living a happier, healthier life.

That’s why letting go of resistance is the theme of 2020. We all face adversity and challenges on a daily basis, but instead of feeling stuck, 2020 is about breaking through and transforming. This is the year to start taking action and saying YES.

So, it’s finally time for us to let you in on a big secret. Every year, I choose a crystal for the year (like a Pantone color!) And this year, I'm sharing my top pick with you: Tourmalinated Quartz. As the best crystal to match the 2020 theme of replacing resistance with resilience, Tourmalinated Quartz is a must-have crystal for anyone and everyone hoping to make 2020 the best year yet.

Switching your mind-set and your thought pattern from no to yes is often easier said than done. But luckily, you don’t have to go through this transformative journey alone. Your Tourmalinated Quartz crystal is ready to support you as you begin to use all challenging situations as an opportunity for growth.

Why Tourmalinated Quartz?

Before we dive into some different ways to use this crystal, it can be helpful to first understand why Tourmalinated Quartz is such a powerful tool for your everyday life.

As a combination of Clear Quartz and Black Tourmaline, Tourmalinated Quartz aids in releasing what doesn’t serve you and getting clear on what does. Instead of living in resistance, in darkness, Tourmalinated Quartz teaches us resilience so we can constantly shift back into the light.

Each and every day, this crystal urges you to ask yourself how you are going to show up. Are you going to choose the darkness or the light? You have the power to shift and transform quickly, and this is the stone to help you do it.

How To Let Go Of Resistance in 2020

So, how do you actually go about shifting your perspective this year? The first step is to wear a piece of crystal jewelry made of Tourmalinated Quartz.

Wear a Tourmalinated Quartz Crystal Bracelet or Necklace

When you wear Tourmalinated Quartz on a daily basis, you can begin reprogramming yourself. You can start catching yourself when you are feeling stuck or resistant, and then make a conscious choice to turn things around. Instead of getting stuck in a downward spiral, you can bring awareness to the darker thoughts you are experiencing and transform them into more positive ones that serve you better. Soon, the lighter side of life becomes your new normal. And that’s what 2020 is all about — making small but powerful changes to live a better life.

Bring Tourmalinated Quartz Crystals into Your Space

In addition to wearing Tourmalinated Quartz on your body, it is helpful to keep the crystal in any spaces you occupy frequently. Whether that’s a crystal on your desk, in your purse, or somewhere prominent in your home, keeping this stone around you throughout the day can help you remember your intention.

Some of our favorite ways to access the healing properties of this stone are through points and touchstones. A tourmalinated quartz point is able to direct your intention out into the universe, offering you even more support on your journey. A touchstone, on the other hand, offers you that quick on-the-spot relief when you are overcome with negative thoughts. Simply squeezing a Tourmalianted Quartz touchstone in one or both hands allows you to take a step back and reset so you can practice letting go of resistance.
