The Energy Enhancer
As a full-time student, I often feel drained both physically and mentally. Since my program is strictly online for the time being, doing classes from home every day also seems to rain on my creativity.
To top this off, my day-to-day struggles with anxiety and depression can make it very hard to focus. And when I do stay focused, I usually end up having a battle with my perfectionism and imposter syndrome.
In summary, there’s a bit of mental chaos going on in my brain on the regular. But whose mind isn’t at least a bit chaotic now and then? Whether it’s school, work, or just our daily lives, the past couple of years have kicked stress, anxiety, and other mental wellness struggles into high gear.
If you’re a stressed-out student or feeling weighed down and tired from those seemingly never-ending workdays, there’s a crystal calling you.
Citrine is a variety of quartz (similar to amethyst) with pale yellow or amber colouring. It’s found in many regions including Brazil, Argentina, Madagascar, Zaire, Namibia, Spain, and Russia. (Minerals.net)
Citrine’s main associations are energy, success, and prosperity. It’s a comforting stone and keeping it by your side can bring you positive, reassuring vibes.
In general, citrine can help lift your mood. It’s said citrine can aid with chronic fatigue and other conditions that leave you with low energy. If you often feel sluggish or drained, try keeping citrine close by.
It’s also believed citrine helps your thyroid, stimulates a healthy digestive system, improves blood circulation, negates bladder infections, helps with nausea, and keeps allergies and skin irritations at bay.
Emotional & Mental Wellness
One reason citrine is a great crystal for students is that it helps stimulate the brain, increases focus and concentration, and promotes motivation. Citrine also aids creativity, self-expression, and raises self-esteem.
Citrine can help dissolve your fears, anxieties, and depression. If you’re looking for crystals to help with mental wellness, citrine is a great one to add to your collection.
Overall, citrine helps bring you positive energy and happiness.
Citrine not only energizes your physical body but can also elevate your spiritual energy.
