Most of us could use some help in boosting our concentration with all the multitasking we do these days. Sometimes an environment can become so distracting that it can be difficult to focus in on what we are doing, however there are ways to increase attention and improve your productivity. One way is to make use of holistic tools that can improve positive energy anywhere. Once such aid is crystals. Crystals have the ability to absorb negative energies that exist all around us bringing about a positive and calm state. These negative absorbers can be sitting on your desk or worn as jewelry or perhaps in your home. Better yet they can be used as paper weights. In fact, I have a rather large geode I found in the province of Alberta, Canada on my desk. It's a beauty too! Can't help but admire the natural shapes and colors. They're mesmerizing!
There are so many different types of crystals that it is difficult to know what ones to begin collecting but I have some favorites that I'd like to share with you.
Agate – Known as the good luck stone, this crystal is also known for its ability to protect, provide strength and harmony. Back in the day agate was worn by soldiers to give them strength. It is known to increase creativity, intelligence and energy. The energy it provides is intermittent and comes in the form of bursts of energy.
Labradorite – This stone is a favorite of the Inuits in Alaska. The crystal gives off a protective barrier against energies that can cause anxiety. Think about all the computers there are in many offices just giving off negativity creating distractions that generate undue stress. Labradorite can ward off these forces allowing you to be calm and focused. It has the most beautiful blue color as well. This makes a very attractive addition to any desk.
Lava stones – These rocks contain a grounding force that allows you to handle complicated situations by providing you with clarity allowing you to be focused and balanced.
Citrine – This gem is known for vibrations of happiness and joy. It has a yellow-gold color and is often found in jewelry. You might try fondling this in the morning to keep you pleasant and content.
Amethyst – A beautiful purple crystal often found in jewelry, it is known for its ability to heal your inner self. This is good to have around when you take time for self reflection. This brings about a calm state much like an alpha state you achieve in meditation. This allows you to go forward in a calm and controlled fashion even in the presence of negative energies.
Rose Quartz – The deep red of rose quartz is heart warning and naturally inspires feelings of love. This provides for a feeling of self love which transcends to all around you. I particularly like this gem and used to collect it off the ground in upper state New York as a child. My bedroom was full of these little beauties.
