After a year long hiatus from school spent traveling, working and soul searching, I found myself being called to enroll this fall semester. I was nervous as a year is a long time to be out of the flow of classes, but as a diligent student in the classroom of life, I prepared myself for the scholarly challenges ahead. With a backpack full of notebooks, pencils and my trusted calculator, I headed out for my first day of class with my back-to-school crystals in my pocket.
My first must have stone is Fluorite. It is a stone of clarity and order; assisting the user by silencing internal chatter and enhancing the ability to focus on the task at hand. Its color varies from rich purple, to deep blue, to glowing green and even golden yellow, healing through the solar, heart, throat and third eye chakras. Fluorite’s tranquil color and energy instills a sense of peace and can relieve stress, tension and frustration. As it aids in decision making, mental clarity and memory integration, it is a wonderful stone for studying and test taking.
Rutilated Quartz is form of quartz with strands of rutile mineral darting through it. Just as a shooting star illuminates the sky as it soars through the atmosphere, rutilated quartz helps to cut through illusions, diminish fear and strengthen decision making. Rutilated Quartz is beneficial for moving energy, clearing blockages and enhancing clarity. For those early mornings after a late night writing papers it’s nice to have such an energetically stimulating stone on hand.
Last but surely not least, Azurite is an essential back-to-school crystal as it works with the third eye to strengthen intuition and open the mind to new perspectives. Used as a tool for spiritual development in ancient Egyptian, Greek, Chinese and Native American practices, Azurite has a long history of enhancing inner vision and providing spiritual insight. Through working with this stone the user may feel more aligned with their higher purpose, allowing them to pursue their goals with confidence and ease. Any test taker is almost guaranteed a better score when in a calm and centered state of being.
No matter what level of study you’re on, whether it be kindergarten or senior year, earning your Master’s or working hard in the school of life, trust in your abilities to be the best student to can be. With an attitude of confidence, dedication and an arsenal of Fluorite, Rutilated Quartz, Azurite supporting you along the journey, success is certain. Enjoy!
