Best Gems to Support Your New Year's Resolutions

Like us, as you look ahead to 2023, you may be setting heartfelt intentions for new growth, new habits, and new awareness for the brand-new year. This is where therapeutic gemstones can help.

While you can find lots of helpful hints for sticking to your 2023 goals, gemstones offer something unique: 24-hour, focused energetic support that is as easy to receive as wearing a beautiful gemstone necklace!

Here are some of the therapeutic gemstones we turn to for support when we want to—

Stay motivated

Whatever your New Year’s resolutions might be, often the greatest challenge is simply sticking with them. At the top of our list for help in staying motivated is Poppy Jasper. Its energy inspires a positive, joyful attitude and provides the motivation and energy to complete tasks and projects. (Bonus: Many find that its adrenaline-like energy is a great caffeine substitute.)

Exercise more

Athena helps you tap your warrior spirit and build overall strength. When worn for short durations, such as before exercise, Athena will remove energetic obstacles that may be holding you back from reaching your goals. Its energy also supports the healing of physical and supraphysical injuries.

TIP! Once you’ve made a healthy change, you can use Quartzite to anchor and stabilize it. Quartzite helps prevent you from slipping back to your old state after you’ve undergone an uplifting change.

Eat healthier 

One of our premier gems for help with healthy eating and weight is Apatite. Its energy focuses on resolving all manner of food-related issues, especially those involving karmic entanglements. Apatite also supports the absorption and assimilation of nutrients, so your body is better able to get the fuel it needs to function at an optimal level and to avoid cravings.

Also check out Citrine, which helps you let go of what no longer serves you (excess weight perhaps?)

Break a bad habit

Need help overcoming an unhealthy behavior pattern? Libra’s steadfast support fosters the dissolution of old habits and encourages the formation of new, healthier ones. Its energy imparts confidence in your power to change your life, while strongly encouraging those changes to occur in balance.

If the unwanted habit is emotional, we recommend Rhodonite, which gradually transforms your entire emotional foundation, helping you become more balanced, mature, and strong in response to life’s challenges. As part of this transformation, unhealthy behaviors naturally tend to fall away.

TIP! Want to speed up the pace of change? Check out Riverstone. It helps you move more swiftly through the shifts sparked by a life-promoting change or therapy. Bonus tip: When used with meditation, Riverstone energizes your entire being and can lead to deeper spiritual experiences.

Focus on self-care

One of the newest members of our Gemisphere gemstone family, Chrome Diopside embodies the energies of a master teacher. It awakens your inner knowing and ability to take practical steps to heal yourself with natural forces. Wearing Chrome Diopside confers a degree of protection as it reveals deeper truths about natural healing and guides you to implement those truths.

Get more organized

Disorderly surroundings and time-management challenges are usually reflections of our own mental disarray. Lavender Fire helps clear mental clutter and brings greater clarity, flexibility, and orderliness to the mind. With greater clarity comes a broader perspective and often fresh ideas for solving your organizational puzzles.

Learn a new skill or hobby

If you have ever seen a master at work, you may have sensed the peace, focus, and joyful purpose that emanates from someone whose heart and mind are working in harmony. When heart and mind work together, mastery of any area of life becomes attainable. Lapis Lazuli harmonizes your heart and mind as it forges stronger bonds between them, making it the ideal gemstone partner when learning a new skill or hobby.
