WOW! APRIL, SOME MUCH NEEDED CLARITY!
BIRTH FLOWER: DAISY + SWEET PEA
April: In These Crazy Times We Live In, Here Are Some Gemstones That Relieve Stress
As you most likely know, the world has shifted greatly in the last few weeks to help curb the spread of coronavirus. This new reality has left everyone working out of their pajamas, homeschooling their kids, staying six feet away from their loved one, and oddly enough, buying a bunch of toilet paper. This whole unsettling time left us wanting to dive deeper into the question:
Can gemstone jewelry relieve stress and anxiety?
The answer is, yes. The Gemisphere shares that therapeutic gemstones like rhodonite soothes symptoms of emotional stress, amethyst helps balance those roller coaster-like highs and lows, and citrine releases tension from your mind, body, and soul, allowing you to let go of those negative thoughts a little easier.
Some of the styles that support these notions and help me relax a bit when I see them are the Amethyst Gemstone Charm Necklace (made in the USA and comes with a complimentary 2” extender) and the powerful Amber Citrine Desert Rose Ring in the birthstone collection.
But let’s not forget about the power that the April birthstone and flower bring to the table this month, the diamond and the daisy. Subtly strong yet compassionate, bright, and illuminating, both of these serve as the perfect beginning to spring as they open up and shine when introduced to natural light.
April’s alternative gemstones are considered to be any transparent rock, such as the quartz (which also carries therapeutic properties). Fortunately, Julia creates many incredible translucent gemstone necklaces, bracelets, rings, and more that help boost balance and mindfulness, often promoting them through exclusive emails to her subscribers (sign up at the bottom of her homepage and get 10% off your first order).
No matter what you’re feeling right now, just remember that we’re all in this together and each one of us is dealing with our own unique challenges.
I find that practicing The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz (especially #1- don’t take anything personally) helps me get through this time, as well as wearing beautiful jewelry (even if I’m just wearing it with my yoga pants or pajamas). In conclusion, may you stay sane, practice kindness, and keep washing your hands!
