Top Healing Crystals For Moms | Mothers Day Gift Guide
Being a parent is hard. Whether you're new to it or are a seasoned mama, it is a challenge. Motherhood has challenged me in more ways than I ever thought possible. It might be cliché, but the part of the parental rumor about not really knowing love until you have a child has some truth to it. (That's not to discount the love child-free people experience, though, just to be clear.)
Raising humans has its ups and downs. I think this is something we can all agree on. I think as mothers we tend to fall into the trap of trying to attain this fictitious idea of perfection. I can't really say who we are trying to prove our worth to, though. The kids? Our spouses? Other mothers? Ourselves? Society as a whole? It's so disheartening to me to know that so many people struggle to keep it all together but women in particular are notorious for trying to not let it show, even though we are all essentially in the same boat. Please rest assured, we are all in the same boat.
I can say from personal experience that one of the parts of being a mother I struggled with the most was feeling like I had lost my sense of self and my connection to Spirit. My children are older now but looking back now, it feels like when they were very young I went through periods of being on autopilot. I remember feeling so disconnected from my humanity and my magic I don't even recognize that woman I remember from back then. I so badly wish I had a mentor / mother figure in my life back then to help remind me to stay grounded.
If you resonate with this, I want to make sure you know that I understand. You don't have to keep up the façade of perfection. Life is messy, and parenting is one of the messiest parts. It is ok to prioritize tasks and it's certainly ok to look after your own wellbeing in the process. Actually, it is NECESSARY for you to look after your own wellbeing in the process, whatever that might look like for you.
I wanted to throw together this quick post to remind you of your magic in case you are feeling separate from it and to offer some support in whatever way I can give it. We do have some lovely crystals and things in the shop you might find helpful. This is also a good list to keep handy for reference when using the crystals you already own.
Without further ado, I present to you my favorite crystals and things for mamas:

Aside from crystals, I cannot recommend this book enough: Chakras and the Vagus Nerve
If you are not familiar, caring for the Vagus Nerve is HUGE part of health. This book was recently released and is already being touted as groundbreaking. Personally, I love the blend of science with esotericism and can't stress enough how important the mind-body connection is. If you are struggling, START HERE!
We also have some great yoga gear on the site. Yoga ties into the Polyvagal Theory, if you aren't familiar, it is truly fascinating.
Please do reach out with any questions. We are always here for you.
