When it comes to our spiritual practices, the value of consistency cannot be overstated. Much like training for a marathon or earning a specialized degree, it takes lots of consistent effort, on a daily basis, to see real progress! To that end, it’s time to reconnect with our warrior mindset in order to stay on track with our spiritual practices.
However, white-knuckling through your rituals every day and beating up on yourself if you get off-track is not the way to go! That’s why our favorite crystal pairing to work with when it comes to consistent rituals is Shiva Lingam and Spirit Quartz. They are a powerful combination that will help you get rooted, stay rooted, but also have a little compassion for yourself when you veer off-track. Add both of these crystal energies to your daily rituals for added support, guidance, and empowerment along the way.
Remember: crystals + practice + consistency = results!
