Have you ever found yourself asking, ‘Why won’t my stones work anymore?’
UPDATE: This article previously used the term “mojo” to describe a person’s energetic connection to their crystals. Using this term is culturally appropriative (as this is a term rooted in African spiritual practice) in the context it was previously used, especially shared by the author here (who is white). This article has been updated to reflect this change.
Here’s what I can tell you from my own experience… Just because your crystals didn’t work for healing this one time, it doesn’t mean they DON’T work, or that they WON’T work for you again in the future. So don’t worry, There are many things you can do to get your crystal connection back…
It could be that your body was just worn down and you became a bit ill. Sometimes this is necessary so that we actually take time to RECOVER physically. Your crystals were still likely working hard behind the scenes to support you energetically.
Also, from time to time, we need a break from everything. Yes, dare I say… even form working with our stones.
And this is OK! 🙂
I love gardening, but if I were out gardening every day, I would totally overdo it. I would exhaust myself.
Sometimes you just have to trust that your crystals know best. If you’re not feeling called to work with them right now, it could be because they’re sending you signals that it’s just not the right time. Or, even more likely, your higher self (or inner self/intuition/guides/angels/etc.) may be sending you signals that it’s not the right time.
So, my advice is… take a step back.
Allow yourself some time to naturally get back into your crystal groove. Maybe start slow by adding a piece of crystal jewelry into your routine. Or, choose just 1 single stone to carry around in your pocket for a few days.
Just be in the flow of the universe. Don’t force it and your connection will rekindle in divine time.
Sometimes the universe forces us to take a break from things. This includes from the things we love and that are important to us.
It may be time to get really serious and really honest with yourself. Ask some important questions about why you’re unable to connect with your stones like:
- “Am I taking care of myself?”
- “Am I pursuing my work and being of service to others at the expense of my own physical or emotional well being?”
- “Is there any reason my guides or the universe would want me to take a pause or rest from the work I am doing?”
- “Has anything else in my life shifted or changed that would cause me to feel disconnected from my work?”
Take some time to really sit with these questions. Maybe even meditate on them, or journal about them.
Sometimes these things can be scary, overwhelming, or difficult to face. However, there is almost always a good reason for this.
