How can gemstones motivate me?

Gemstones can motivate you by channeling your internal energy levels in the right direction - with their support you can accomplish anything. The right gemstone can provide the kick in the pants that will help you achieve your goals, whether personal or professional.

We all need motivation form time to time. It might be a good reason to learn something new, a desire to get a better job, encouragement to begin exercising, the impetus to ask someone out on a date or an incentive to save more money.

However it can be all too easy to settle for the usual routine, close the curtains and lie back on the couch, not risk rejection and not take a chance.

There are several different aspects to motivation. We need to make the decision to move, act, change, respond and so on. We need the persistence and endurance to work until we reach our goals and not be put off at the first hurdle. We require concentration and focus so we will not be distracted from the path to success. Finally, we must be able to recognize and enjoy our success and move forward to the next objective.

We have gathered together a great collection of crystals that will motivate, energize, revitalize, nurture, inspire and manifest. Accomplish your aims and avoid motivational speakers and inspirational clichés all at the same time.

So these are the suggested gemstones but how should we use them to boost our motivation?

The simplest way for a gemstone to influence you is to wear one as a piece of jewelry, that way it will be with you all day without you having to think about it.

As an additional thought, bear in mind the Chakras. The color of the gemstone will usually indicate which Chakra it is most closely connected to - green bloodstone is associated with the Heart Chakra so a pendant or necklace could be the jewelry of choice.

Alternatively, you could just put the gemstone in your pocket or handbag and carry them with you throughout the day. If you are feeling particularly listless and in need of a pick-me-up them just take out the gemstone and hold it in your hand for a quick motivational boost.

Keep the gemstones in the area where you would most benefit from motivational aid. It could be in your workspace, desk, by the computer, in the studio, in your car for a lift on the way to work, in the bedroom, in the garden, on your yoga mat - the options are endless.

Use the gemstones when meditating or visualizing - just hold them in the palm of your hand or place them on the floor beside you.

Lie down or relax somewhere with the gemstones or gemstone placed on the relevant Chakra point.

See our Chakra Gemstones article here for more information.

Use the gemstone in an affirmation ritual. Hold a gemstone or two in your hand while repeating out loud (or in your head if you feel a bit shy or self-conscious) a positive statement about what you would like to achieve.

For example:

‘I am strong and powerful. I will achieve my goals'.

Make a gemstone elixir with your gemstone and drink it as tea or a cool glass or water. Put it in a spray bottle and give your space a invigorating spritz.

See our Gemstone elixir page here.

Put some gemstones in or around the bath for an end of day relaxation session that will rid you of the tensions that have built up and will have you ready to go the next day.

Your gemstone will probably need an occasional cleanse and refresh. This can be done in a number of ways.

  • Run them under cool fresh water - in a spring, stream or under a waterfall is best but the tap at home will do.
  • Give them a moon or sun bath - just an hour for the sun as some gemstones can fade and all night for the moon - full moon is best.
  • Bury them in rich soil overnight for a recharge with energies from their birthplace.
  • Smudge them with sage or incense. Wave the gemstones through the smoke.
