It's officially the Christmas season! For most people, the month of December is about exchanging gifts, preparing an enormous feast, and spending quality time with the family. But for us crystal geeks, December is the best time for setting goals and intentions.
Why Set Your Intentions in December Rather Than January?
When you set intentions for the upcoming year in December and work towards achieving your goals for the entire month, you get to welcome New Year with pride. New Year's Eve then becomes a celebration of what you can do, rather than a time to feel sorry for what you haven't accomplished.
And this sets the tone for the year ahead. This simple switch renews your mindset and attitude for the New Year ” from one of dread and frustration to hope and excitement.
To manifest your desires faster (that is, to accelerate bringing something tangible in your life by belief and attraction), you must set your intentions with healing crystals.
Crystals carry potent energies that breathe life into intentions and turn them into realities.
How Do Crystals Help Us Achieve the Things We Want?
Crystals can be used to control the energy in and around us. This can help speed up the manifestation process.
Various crystals also serve as a visual reminder of your goals. You can use a crystal set with a specific intention to remind you to follow through on that goal.
For example, if you tend to worry about the future, you can look to your amethyst crystal to gently remind yourself to be still and stay grounded in the present moment.
Intentions to Set with Your Crystals
So what exactly are intentions? Intentions are like mantras that guide your goals and vision. They are personal statements that reflect your desires or the outcomes that you want to achieve.
There are different types of intentions you can set with your crystals. For them to be effective, they have to be deeply personal; something that you believe in from the bottom of your heart. You must also recite these intentions while meditating with your crystals.
Here are some examples of intentions:
Intentions for boosting self-confidence:
- I'm bold and brave.
- I have all the qualities I need to succeed.
- I intend to love and care for myself better.
- I am worthy of love and respect.
Intentions for attracting love and romance:
- I intend to be vulnerable and open.
- I embrace new beginnings and healing from the past.
- I invite romantic connection into my life.
- I intend to love unconditionally.
Intentions for embracing positivity and releasing stress:
- I intend to release negativity and choose happiness.
- I am braver than my fears tell me.
- I open myself to healing and warmth.
- I intend to forgive myself and others.
Intentions for career or financial success:
- I intend to take deliberate steps to achieve my dream career.
- I open myself to financial opportunities that I need.
- I invite the right professional connections into my life.
- I intend to be open to success and abundance.
To set these intentions:
- Write down your intention and say it out loud.
- Hold the crystal in your hand.
- Think of your intention and focus on it as if it's already happened. Cleanse and charge your crystals after use.
