Creative 101: Crystals for Creativity
A guide to what crystals will enhance your creative energy.
Written by Krista Mitchell
A large part of my clientele is people working in the arts, media, and creative industries. Who knows where creative ideas come from? Some say they’re born of passion, others necessity. Whether your creative juices spring from the gentle whispers of your heart or if they flow from the Divine, when your rent depends on it, what matters is that they flow! I’ve seen many a creative block in my time. Lots of crippling self-doubt. And piles of pressure to stay at the top of your game.
I’ve learned that when you’re working in a creative field, nurturing yourself is equally as important as nurturing your muse. The great thing about crystals is that they can help clear creative blocks, boost the flow of creative ideas, and open you up to greater sources of inspiration. All this while supporting your health and well-being, too.
✨ CRYSTAL COMBINATIONS ✨
CREATIVE CRYSTAL SUPPORT TEAM: Wear carnelian, fire agate, jade, citrine, and azurite while working. You can also place larger pieces of these crystals strategically on your desk, in your studio, or in your workshop for added energy.
CREATIVE EXPANSION: If you’re ready to expand your ideas, concepts, and creations, meditate with azurite in your receptive hand and cinnabar quartz in your dominant hand regularly for 20–30 minutes. Stay open to whatever guidance or impulses come to you throughout the day.
DIVINE INSPIRATION: Sleep with moonstone under your pillow every night, or meditate holding it in your receptive hand for 10–15 minutes daily. Its yin and intuitive, creative energy are also perfect for plumbing the subconscious for new ideas.
IMAGINATION: The child within us keeps our magic, hope, and wonder alive. Our creative genius, inspired selves, and spark of imagination often come from this special place inside. Meditate or sleep with angelite daily, and wear mangano calcite, pink kunzite, and green aventurine to help tap into the wellsprings of your inner child.
INVITING THE MUSES: Wear pink kunzite, moonstone, and ajoite to relax and bring on a dreamy, expansive state. Give yourself at least one hour wearing this combination while remaining open and receptive, then make note of whatever surfaces. Great guidance and ideas can pop in at times when we just let go and let our minds wander.
PERFORMING: Wear citrine and carnelian for inspired choices, and aquamarine for free, fearless expression when acting, singing, or dancing.
STIMULATION: Wear blue kyanite to stimulate creative expression and ideas.
TRANSDIMENSIONAL IDEAS (ESPECIALLY FOR SPIRITUAL AND SCI-FI/FANTASY ARTISTS AND AUTHORS): Wear celestite for divine inspiration, smoky quartz for grounding and purpose, and cinnabar quartz and ajoite for creative flow and expression.
WORKING UNDER PRESSURE: Wear carnelian, garnet, amethyst, and blue lace agate to keep you from blocking the flow of your creativity or shutting down when you’re working under pressure.
WRITER’S BLOCK: Wear carnelian, orange calcite, cinnabar quartz, and citrine daily to dissolve creative blocks and get your good chi flowing again.
