A Spiritual Pregnancy - Crystals for New Age Mothers and Alternative Pregnancy Support
As we approach mother's day it is important we don't forget expectant mothers in the festivities! Whether you are a seasoned mama expecting an additional child or are expecting your first, read on for some ideas for alternative remedies to help guide you through this season of motherhood.
Crystals for Pregnancy, Delivery, and for New Baby
Leading up to and after the process of carrying, birthing, and caring for a new baby, the human body experiences significant and drastic change. Between what feels like an emotional free-fall from hormone fluctuations and the dramatic life changes that will invariably ensue with the addition of a new family member, the notion of a person needing support during this challenging time should not come as a surprise.
On the flip side of all of the scary parts, bringing life into this world is a beautiful, spiritual, and natural part of being a human. Having experienced two pregnancies and births personally, I understand fully the push/pull between being brought to my knees with fear and uncertainty and the overwhelming elation and almost unbearably fierce love that comes with motherhood. It's a lot. Because it's a lot and I know there are a lot of you out there struggling with this right now, I wanted to share a quick list of things I have in my arsenal that you will hopefully find as helpful as I do.
For the Spiritual side of things, the following stones and any combination thereof are ideal choices for connection with the Divine Feminine, feminine energy, and the deep and impenetrable strength that comes with motherhood.
Moonstone metaphysical properties: Moonstone is perfect for embracing feminine energy and the Divine Feminine. It is known for its soothing qualities it has on the emotions. (It's great for emotional balance for men, too)
Rose Quartz metaphysical properties: The Stone of Universal Love, Rose Quartz is connected to the Divine Feminine in all of us. It brings with it an energy of compassion and peace.
Labradorite metaphysical properties: Labradorite is known to strengthen intuition and psychic abilities. It's great for balancing masculine and feminine energies and is powerful in opening up the connection to the Divine Feminine.
Amethyst metaphysical properties: Amethyst is the ultimate stone of feminine energy. It carries a loving and gentle but unmistakable vibration. It's great for digging deep into the strength of the feminine when moments of vulnerability surface.
Selenite metaphysical properties: Selenite is a stone directly linked to the moon, which is directly linked to the feminine cycles. It is a high-vibrational stone of energy amplification and is known for its cleansing capabilities. When one wants to invoke the strength of the Divine Feminine, Selenite is a go-to.
For emotional and female hormonal support, I recommend the following:
Moonstone benefits: Moonstone makes the list again for its ability to neutralize emotional instability. It balances hormones and is excellent for conception, pregnancy, childbirth, and PMS.
Smoky Quartz benefits: Smoky Quartz brings emotional calmness and dispels anxiety.
Rose Quartz benefits: Rose Quartz also make the list again for its ability to regulate mood swings and to bring peace.
Labradorite benefits: not only is Labradorite great for balancing energy, it is wonderful for menstrual issues, particularly when placed on the abdomen. It is also a powerful mood booster.
Citrine benefits: Citrine is said to be a powerful stone of transformation, enhancing energy levels and dissipating negative energy. It harmonizes the physical, mental and spiritual aspects, providing balance and strengthening the intuition.
Lepidolite benefits: Lepidolite is a great mood stabilizer and brings with it soothing energy. It is wonderful for dispelling anxiety.
Unakite benefits: Unakite is known to promote nurturing qualities and is associated with kindness.
All of these crystals are great but each will work better for some than others. I recommend you try out a few that really call to you to help narrow down the best choice for you.
