The new year is a common time to make big changes and set the stage for transformation and a fresh start. Most of us have grandiose plans at first, but quickly slip back into old habits. So how can you be sure to stick with your plans and stay on track with your goals in the new year? Try working with these top crystals for new beginnings!


Crystals for New Beginnings in the New Year


Crystals work great along with your intentions for helping you reach your goals. For example, Rhodonite is a fantastic crystal for new beginnings.  To start a new routine in the new year, simply reach for a piece of Rhodonite and hold it in your hands.

Close your eyes and think about exactly what you’d like to do differently in the new year.  Visualize it in great detail – is it a new wellness routine, a commitment to read a book per week, or quitting a habit?  See it as clearly as possible, as if you can see it playing like a movie in your mind’s eye.



Once you’ve been able to visualize this new routine, hold the crystal over your heart for a moment to show gratitude to the stone. Your stone has now been imprinted, or programmed, with the information from your visualization.

Once you’ve programmed your stone, simply carry it with you, in your purse, pocket, or handbag.  

Any time you feel yourself begin to stray from your new routine, just reach for your stone for a bit of support and a reminder of that good feeling you had during your visualization, as well as a reminder of what you’re working toward and why it’s important to you. This will help ensure that your good intentions for creating new beginnings keep their momentum the whole year through.

Since you’ll be carrying your stone throughout the day, you’ll need to be sure to cleanse it frequently.  One of the simplest methods of cleansing is to pass it through the smoke of burning herbs. Try rosemary, mugwort, or lavender.

A great alternative method to smoke-cleansing your stones is to ring a bell or sound a chime near your crystal.  Sound is a powerful cleanser of energy and is quick, simple, and convenient.

For more ideas, see this article on other common crystal cleansing methods.

And while you’re cleansing your stones, you may wish to cleanse your space while you’re at it. By allowing stagnant energy to linger in your environment, you’re inadvertently telling the Universe that you’re fine with anything in your life that feels stuck.  Clearing this energy out of your space tells the Universe that you’re ready for new energy that’s more aligned with your current vision and goals.

Something important to remember is that new beginnings don’t just magically happen.

Lasting change typically requires our effort and focus. Many of us remember to do simple things like routine energy cleansing. But when it comes down to energetic self-care, it’s easy to fall short. Quick and easy healing exercises are ideal (because you’ll actually DO them), but are they effective?  Let me put it this way, it’s better to do little exercises more frequently because they are quick and easy than to put off energetic self-care because you don’t feel like you have time. It’s almost always better to be doing something than to do nothing at all – especially when it comes to your energetic well-being.

    Thank you … the Webinar was great!

  2. Robin on December 14, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    When we cleanse our stones, do we need to “reprogram” our intentions back into them afterwards? After all, isn’t it being COMPLETELY cleansed of everything? I know it’s probably a stupid question, I was just wondering.

    1. Francesca on December 31, 2020 at 1:54 pm

      Cleansing doesn’t get rid of intention, just energetic clutter ?

      1. Jolie Love and Light Support on January 14, 2021 at 6:39 pm

        You got it! 🙂 Great question <3 Crystal Blessings!

  3. Teju on December 14, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    With a brand new year just round the corner, this write-up is just exactly what i needed!
    Thank you, Ashley!

  4. David on December 14, 2016 at 7:52 pm

    Thanks for the post, very nice, i will have to acquire a rhodonite stone

  5. Michelle on December 17, 2016 at 5:33 pm

    I LOVE all of your work Ashley and am SO thankful to have found you!!! This article and information are GREAT and I will certainly start using all of your tips! I really enjoyed your webinar on Tues. night! I was amazed at the age difference I felt with people being late, the “chat bar” that was just very distracting and the late people wanting to know what they had missed? I felt all of that was very disrespectful to you and the rest of us. I am 54, but we were never raised to behave like this. Since I always offer a possible solution to a complaint, maybe not have LIVE webinar’s and have them pre-done before air and THEN offer a live Q&A immediately following. Also, a lot of us were very intrigued with the beautiful crystals you had on the book cases behind you, so maybe have a “show and tell” about what you have in your home and why 🙂 Thank you SO very much for all you do for ALL of us!!! Love, Michelle

    I would love to post your information to my Pinterest wall. Would you consider putting a link to Pinterest on all these blog posts?
    Thank You!

    I’ll definitely give this a try! Everything I’ve tried, that you presented has been successful beyond my hopes and expectations. I, first & foremost, am my own patient. I have spent the last 30 years working on myself, with some remarkable results, in my own right, but you knowledge & instruction put my skills over the top. ?

    1. Jolie Love and Light Support on January 14, 2021 at 6:57 pm

      Yay! Oh that makes me so happy to hear. 🙂 It is so important to put time & effort into our self-care & growth. I admire that greatly! And we are happy to have played a small part in your journey. <3 Crystal Blessings!

  8. Lisa Horton on February 18, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    I have never met anyone whom is so acknowledged regarding crystals; companion flowers, essential oils, elements, zodiac, companion crystal for each.

    How you explain the healing properties.

    You are one incredible lady

    1. Jolie Love and Light Support on February 19, 2021 at 4:57 pm

      That is so kind of you to say! Sending gratitude <3 Crystal Blessings

  9. Riley Rose on January 4, 2024 at 9:30 am

    Hi! I have a question about crystal healing! Is it possible to make crystal grids with larger stones or mismatching stones? Or does it have to be smaller tumbled stones that mirror each other perfectly? I’m asking because I want to get into crystal grids, but only have mismatching stones and don’t have a ton of duplicate stones of eachother and most of them are on the larger side. Thanks!

    1. Cortney Love & Light Support on January 16, 2024 at 9:02 pm

      Hi Riley, absolutely! We often mix stones for crystal grids and layouts, whether its by type, size, could be rough or tumbled, or even using terminated points. Its the intention that’s most important. <3 Crystal Blessings
