Kick off the new year by harnessing some good vibrations from the Jan. 5 partial solar eclipse. While it won't be visible in the U.S., you can still use crystals for the January 2019 partial solar eclipse to take advantage of its cosmic energy to attract what you want for the coming year. "One of the most important components to working with crystals is setting an intention, 'programming' each stone to reflect what it is that you want. It wants to work for you, but you have to tell it what to do," Energy Muse co-founders Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro said in a Q&A about crystals.
"Life doesn’t always go as planned, and it can throw you off-kilter. In the moments when you’re vibrating at a lower frequency, your intentions can fly out the window. When you reconnect with your programmed crystal, it will help you remember your goals and limitless potential." Ahead of the eclipse, take some time to work with your crystals and set your intentions for the January 2019 partial solar eclipse. Make sure you're super clear about what you want to bring into your life.
"Aloud or in your head, say, 'I ask that the highest vibration of love and light connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy and any previous programming. I command this crystal to hold the intention of [insert your intention] ...' To finish the sentence, add three intentions for your crystal — energies that you wish it to hold for you. End by repeating 'thank you' three times. By saying it three times, you emphasize that what you’re asking for already exists in the universe," Askinosie and Jandro explained. Ready to get started?
