The Crystal Realm: Crystals for Soween.

As the end of October is the celebration of Soween, I thought I would post this list of crystals that may be useful to you. A few of these stones I use all year long, so they can be utilized for any time you need their energy. If you plan on doing any metaphysical work on the 31st, you might look into using a few of these, depending on what you wish to do.

Soween is the time to communicate with spirits, divination, to honour the ancestors, and to reflect on the past year. There are many crystals whose energy can help, but the list below are ones that I have either used or have a strong connection to the Soween activities.

I’m not sure if I’ll be doing anything extra for this celebration. I just may sit outside and listen to the night with a candle and a few crystals. At this time of year, I find that sometimes, the simpler rites are easier. Especially if I’ve had to work that day as somedays, it can take a few hours to decompress.

Fluorite – Connected to the energies of Neptune, Fluorite is useful in developing psychic abilities. Soween is the perfect time for as this is one of two dates on the wheel where the veil between worlds is at its thinnest.

Obsidian – Obsidian is one of three crystals I use to protect my personal energy. Not only is it a protective stone (actually, its volcanic glass, not a stone), but it also absorbs negative energy.

Smokey Quartz – This crystal is helpful with grounding and meditation. You will need a calm mind for whatever work you plan to do.

Hematite – Another stone is good for focus and grounding.

Labradorite – This crystal is useful for Full moon magic, intuition, divination and help with communicating with the spirit world.

Howlite – This stone is very particular with what it can do. It is connected to and helps with connection to past lives.

Some of the other stones that I researched were:

Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, and Azurite are all helpful with when asking for psychic insights.

I suggest some meditation prior to attempting any spiritual work. You need to be in the right mindset to understand any information that may be given you.

Citrine can help with enhancing concentration and can help cleanse the negative aspects and doubt of the mind. This is very useful for focusing or with meditation.

Don’t forget to include scents with your work. It will enhance and help you focus on your task. Good luck and have a Blessed Soween!
