Have you ever felt like no matter how much energy you took toward a problem, you couldn’t seem to fix it? There’s few things more deflating than investing hard work into a part of your life, and not seeing a positive pay off. If you’ve been stuck in a sludge of negativity, and nothing you’ve done has worked to break you out of it, it’s probably time to shift your approach.
Healing crystals give us the perspective we need to better assess how to achieve a breakthrough. In life, when we find out that a route we’re on has a dead end, we turn around and find an alternative path. When things are less literal, and we reach an impasse in our career, love life or spiritual progress, it’s harder to visualize ourselves stepping back and pursuing a different strategy. Instead, we feel that we’ve sunk too much effort into this plan to quit now, so we may even push forward with it after recognizing those dead end signs. By infusing your spirit with optimism, focus and a renewed perspective, crystals lend you the clarity to see obstacles and find new ways past them.
