It is summer and families are taking to the road to find fun and adventure. Visiting new places allows us to experience new people, cultures, lifestyles, food, and ways of seeing the world that we may not have known existed. It allows us to connect with the beauty of our planet and appreciate the majesty of creation in a new way.
“Traveling is one of the easiest ways to become aware of the magic that weaves all of creation together through serendipity and synchronicity with perfect timing.” – Adam Siddiq
It is always advantageous to set an intention prior to your trip. By doing so, you energetically set the stage for realizing your goals. The trick is to set it and then let go of any attachments and open yourself up for the ride.
One very special way to connect with your intentions is to include a dose of gemstone energy when you pack your suitcase. They take up very little room but provide so much beauty and awareness and vibrational support both on your journey and while at your destination.
So, what is it you wish to find or achieve on your next road trip? Beauty and harmony? Helpful people? Safe travels? Commune with nature? More abundance? Whatever your desires are, here are some gemstones that can assist with your goals.
Bloodstone. Bloodstone is a transformative stone that has the capacity to help us take on life and its challenges. It also promotes benevolence and humility and invites us to learn from nature, tree and plant spirits.
Amethyst. Amethyst is “extravagance in violet.” It carries both fire (red) and water (black or blue) energy. Fire turns water into steam and it is this alchemy that helps us manifest. Thus, amethyst is a talisman for wealth and abundance.
Carnelian. Carnelian is excellent for restoring vitality and motivation, and for stimulating creativity. From the Feng Shui Five Element point of view, the red-orange color of carnelian is the result of Fire/red moving into Earth/yellow becoming orange. Its fiery quality reminds us to take action, but not at the risk of burn out.
Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is a powerful stone of unconditional love. It gently draws off the negative energy and replaces it with loving vibrations. This beautiful stone promotes an openness to love and beauty in all its forms.
Moonstone. This very female stone carries with it an ability to create and is thus an excellent stone for sparking your creativity. Moonstone helps us to be naturally “in sync” with the cycles of the external world. Moonstone has been used for thousands of years as a talisman for protection when traveling.
Hematite. Hematite is the heaviest stone used in stone medicine. Because it is easily magnetized, it conducts intention easily. Hematite is the perfect stone to attract the people and things we want and need to helps us on our journey.
Snowflake Obsidian. Snowflake Obsidian contains fire energy from its origin deep in the earth, however; the water element, is essential here. This amorphous gemstone is actually molten lava that was submerged in water that cooled so quickly it had no time to crystallize. Spiritually, Snowflake Obsidian vitalizes soul purpose while keeping us grounded.
Lapis Lazuli. Lapis Lazuli is a powerful stone of wisdom that strengthens our intuition. It increases our level of consciousness and thus opens the door to higher knowledge. In a dream state, Lapis Lazuli can be used to cultivate astral travel.
