Mental Clarity, Manifestation, and Creativity; The Crystal of Abundance
Citrine enhances one's mental clarity while magnifying the powers of personal will, helping you take on difficult situations and projects with optimism and creativity. Citrine improves motivation, enhances concentration, and revitalizes the mind promoting a sensation of inner calmness and clarity so that wisdom can emerge, awakening the higher mind. Citrine raises self confidence and self-esteem, removing emotional patterns while assists understanding constructive criticism.
As a powerful cleanser it is an extremely beneficial crystal. Absorbing negative energy it transmutes it to that of joy.

How do you know which crystal is right for you?
How do you pick out one of the many before you?
Most people look with only their eyes to buy crystals or minerals. Yet remember this urges one to pick what is more pleasing for themselves; whether it is shinier, prettier etc.
The famous quote "You can never tell a book by its cover,” by Edwin Rolfe runs through my mind when choosing a crystal or anything in life.
In crystal healing it is not what you want but what you need. When choosing a crystal or mineral... FEEL... don’t look for what you want but rather let the crystal come to you.
If a crystal feels too heavy (as if there is an invisible cord tethering it to its place) or it feels uncomfortable immediately put it down. You already know it’s not for you and as you study it thoughts about how you love the look of the crystal runs through your head. Which compelled you to pick it up in the first place. It’s okay we crystal lovers have all been there. Don’t believe me try it for yourself. It will be proven time and time again.
Crystals and minerals come to you for a reason whether you believe in crystal healing or not. Think about how old that crystal or mineral is, the history it has seen, the energy of the forces that shaped it and out of the many this particular one came to you. It is absolutely amazing to think that this one particular crystal or mineral’s journey was to make it to you... Appreciate it! Love it!
So when choosing a crystal pick a couple or two you feel drawn to. If you are having trouble choosing.
While holding one close your eyes... and take a deep breath to clear you mind. This may take a couple deep breathes to do so.
All doubts aside, open your heart. For crystals and minerals are the loving energy of the Earth and are in fact the Earth’s DNA.
I assure you within a couple deep breaths and holding the crystal you will know which one is for you.
So remember Crystal Lovers… “In Crystal Healing it is not what you want but what you need!” Sending much love and light to all. – Amanda-Rayne –
On Labor Day I went mining for Herkimer Diamonds for my first time! I found a couple amazing baby Herkimers with my good friends Nick and Mac. It was a wonderful day even after mining in 100 degree wether.
The moment you find a crystal your heart leaps with joy like that of a child's.
I definitely have so much respect and renewed appreciation for those who work in the field. Thank you to all the miners and collectors who make having our crystals and minerals possible, it is no easy job.
I can't wait to go mining again!
