As the new year is upon us, there are things that we can do to nurture our visions for the future. Let’s explore the gemstones and journal prompts that help you create your best year yet!
2024 has officially arrived and we’re beyond excited for this fresh start. As we enter the new year we’re starting to think about our future, our purpose and the changes that we need to make to align with our goals. As we do that, we’re letting the universe and our highest selves support us!
Gemstones, and crystals, have many metaphysical properties that can help us as we create positive shifts that align us with our most magical selves. As well, one of our favorite tools for change is journaling. Together, gems and journal prompts have the power to support us as we ebb and flow into a new start.
Gemstones for the New Year
The gemstone, or crystal, that are ringing in the new year with is Citrine. This is our top choice for assisting us with making our dreams a reality. Citrine is a beautifully abundant stone that promotes prosperity, healthy finances and positive change.
Rose quartz is the stone of unconditional love. It is perfect to surround yourself with when you are creating intentional change or trying to manifest something. The reason for this is because rose quartz can support our endeavours to love ourselves and see the love and beauty of this world.
Amethyst is a great stone to bring into your life if you are trying to reduce stress and create an environment full of peace and tranquility. So, when you are working on yourself or bringing a vision to life, this stone can assist with creating an atmosphere that supports those intentions. Aquamarine is another stone that has similar properties of tranquility and pairs nicely with amethyst!
Black Tourmaline is wonderful for warding off negative and unwanted energy. So when you are working towards new goals, this stone can assist you with protecting yourself from anything that could get in the way of your purpose.
Journal Prompts for the New Year
The purpose of new year journal prompts is to allow journalling to assist us in identifying our goals, visions and action steps for the future. When your journalling, avoid editing and let go of self judgement. Let your thoughts roll onto the page freely. So let’s explore some prompts that can inspire new beginnings.
- Take a few moments to detach from technology and sit with yourself in silence. Close your eyes and feel into the emotions of happiness, creativity and inspiration. What do you see? Write it down.
- Who is the person you want to be? Explain this in detail.
- What do you need to do to begin living as the person you want to be? What do you need to let go of or transform?
- What are the action steps that you can take to begin creating change?
- How can you hold yourself accountable to stay on track with your goals and vision?
Wishing you all an abundant and bright 2024! 🎉
