Best for: Those who need a push, who seek to retrieve the spark missing in their lives. You seek, because you are now conscious that the lack of vital energy, motivation and inspiration is something you have to bid goodbye to in order to work towards a sunny future.
Rise and shine! Harness the power of the Sun today. Imagine yourself as Superman who gains strength by absorbing solar energy, minus the UV rays, of course.
As its name suggests, Sunstone radiates light and warmth. It gives you an extra boost of confidence and assertiveness to be the charismatic leader you are. Like the Sun gods, you’re too hot to handle. The prowess you radiate makes you untouchable by those with ill intentions. Its shimmer illuminates one’s soul with positivity and creativity. You light up the room with your optimism and vitality. As though enchanted, others are attracted to your force of gravity, orbiting around you.
Work with sunstone in its element — the Sun, in the day! To work with this crystal for anything creativity-related, hold and rub it while brainstorming for ideas.
Ask respectfully — “I seek your kind guidance for inspiration to flow in abundance. The power of the Sun to empower all within me. Unleash my power so that I can reach my highest potential of divine higher will. Thank you x 3”
To meditate and regain confidence, hold it and do simple deep breathing exercises while sitting up. Have a piece of paper and a pen with you. After the exercise, write down —1) What things/actions do you want to be in power and control of? 2) What unhealthy habits/situations/people do you currently have that you are making excuses for? 3) How would you feel after breaking away from those variables that are withholding your right to have power over your situation? 4) What should you do next to take back your power?
Procrastination is an excuse that your mind programmed. Time to break that cycle. If you want crystals to assist you, you have to have an aligned intention to help yourself. Set up a 3 days’ routine each night/week before. Follow through the routine. Make an effort to do something creative or spontaneous each day. It could be as simple as a fruit juice mix you have never tried or travelling out for a meal instead of staying within your home ground. Even after the 3 days routine, try to come up with another 3 days so forth.
Sunstone has a very energising and active energy. If you are someone very sensitive to energy and find yourself being hyper energised or active that day, consider other more calming stones for the day instead to balance out the massive energy.

2) According to a Native American legend, Sunstone was formed after a great warrior was wounded by an arrow and his blood spilled onto the stones, thus the red colour. It was believed that this infused the stones with great power. (Credits: Fire Mountain Gems)
