Summer is here, school is out, and many of us are planning trips to white sand beaches and fabulous resorts, hoping to catch a little sun, a little rest, and a little magic along the way.
When you pack your bags for vacation, do you remember to pack your crystals? Crystals make wonderful traveling companions. They can hold intentions for your trip and should be part of any awakened soul’s packing routine. But traveling light is vital and it’s important to know which crystals are best for you to bring on your journey.
I have a few tried and true favorites for the road. If you have one or two of these stones, toss them into your suitcase before you hike, ride, or fly to your next destination.
Jasper – There are a lot of jaspers out there to choose from, and I highly recommend any of them as traveling companions. Jasper is known as the supreme nurturer of the crystal kingdom, and isn’t that what vacation is all about? Some of my favorite jasper choices for the road are picture jasper, yellow jasper, and desert jasper.
Amber – If you’re looking to mellow out under the sun on a lazy beach dripping with palm trees, you can’t do much better than amber as your crystal companion. Amber relieves pain and stress, eases worry, and opens our hearts to soak in all the goodness life has to offer.
Rose Quartz – If the focus of your getaway is self-love and healing, then rose quartz is your crystal for the road. Rose quartz is all about pampering ourselves and loving ourselves unconditionally. It’s perfect for those who need to get away from it all and reconnect.
Scolecite – If you’re planning a trip somewhere peaceful and quiet, looking to dig deep and recharge, like a yoga retreat, a national park, or a new age spa, then you’ll want scolecite by your side. This crystal helps quiet the mind and center us, and it’s perfect for meditation.
Citrine – For some, vacation is less about settling down and more about revving up. Citrine is your traveling companion if you want to get out there, hit the town, live it up, and mingle like a pro. This happy little crystal will help you let your hair down and make some memories.
Jade – Regardless of your destination choice, jade is a great traveling companion for those who want everything to go smoothly and work out beautifully. A great choice for worry warts, planners, and anyone feeling anxiety about their trip, such as to a country with a language barrier. Jade is all about lining you up with the most fortuitous circumstances possible.
What Are You Working On? – My final suggestion is any crystal that lines up with something you’re focusing on in your life right now. Because we unplug from the routine and open up to the possibilities, vacations are a great time to make headway on whatever intentions you’ve been feeling called to. Find a crystal that resonates with that intention and take it on the road, outside of your comfort zone. You’ll be amazed at what can transpire.
