I learned about this amazingly powerful ritual from the magnificent crystal master Krista Mitchell.
I love rituals that are simple, quick yet proven to be highly effective. Now the best time for this ritual is during the first quarter moon as this time signals a time of taking action, possibility, opportunity, and attraction. This is when you work towards achieving your goals and manifesting your intentions. This ritual is one of my faves: a daily practice of writing down my goals while holding a manifestation crystal.
Depending on how many goals you’re presently working towards, this can take as little as one minute. But that’s one minute that can help align + attune your energy, focus, and subconscious towards achieving those goals. Which, for those of you who consciously work the law of attraction know, dramatically fine-tunes your manifestation abilities.
There is a saying that “Millionaires write their goals down once a day. Billionaires write their goals down TWICE a day." Now you may not be seeking out millionaire-hood. But maybe you’d like to lose 10lbs, or add 5 new clients to your weekly schedule, find that next great apartment to live in, meet “the one”, or hit that ambitious sales goal by the end of the month. There’s another saying that “You’re never given a dream that you can’t achieve.” I believe in this saying 100%! But I also know how often life gets in the way, or that many of us can face blocks or limiting beliefs from our psyche that, if allowed, can hold us back.
The genius of writing down your goals as a daily practice is that:
a) all you’re doing is writing down goals (it’s not as threatening to the ego), and
b) unbeknownst to your ego, your subconscious, your energy field, AND the Universe are all taking this list of goals as a list of directives.
In committing to this daily practice, subtle (or not so subtle) shifts start to occur. You start to prioritize differently, or make different choices, or synchronicities and opportunities start popping up, or all of the above!
And those goals start to feel more real, possible, actualized. And if those goals aren’t what you truly, deeply desire on a soul-level, you start to feel it. You become more aware of who you are, your purpose, your true heart’s wishes, and the goals morph into what you really need and are meant to be or do in this lifetime.
This really works and yep, all that from a daily 1-minute practice! Remember as wilth all rituals, consistancy is key.
ADDING CERTAIN MANIFESTATION CRYSTALS TO THE PRACTICE ONLY INCREASES, AMPLIFIES, AND ACCELERATE THE EFFECTS OF THIS RITUAL.
Here’s a few crystal suggestions I can make. My practice is to hold one of these in my left hand (which is my receptive hand), tune in to its vibes, and then start writing with my right hand:
CLEAR QUARTZ You can always work with clear quartz for any kind of intention, and its powers to amplify, magnify, and clarify are a natural fit for manifestation work.
The great thing about quartz is that it acts fast, AND, its like a laser beam to the subconscious. Great for when you’re seeking to pattern new ways of being into the psyche.
RUBIES While not commonly referenced as a manifestation crystal, per se, I was guided to include ruby because it’s excellent for helping people who have trouble staying grounded, committed, and purposeful when it comes to manifesting their purpose or succeeding in positive change.
Ruby is a crystal of self-leadership, passion, wealth, grounding, success, expansion, health, and dedication. It’s a wonderful crystal to work with for those of you who feel you need support in seeing things through.
BLACK OBSIDIAN Grounding, Protection, Shielding. Black Obsidian is a Stone of Manifestation. It is an important crystal to incorporate when wishing to manifest anything. Black Obsidian sharpens your focus and brings new opportunities. Black Obsidian shields you against negativity that may deaden self-belief by cutting through ties and beliefs that no longer serve you.
GOLDEN APITITE is definitely more of a rare find, but worth it, especially for magical workers and people who are consciously activating their law of attraction vibes. I say consciously b/c the law of attraction is always in operation, but for most people its functioning unconsciously (you can reference the work of Jerry and Esther Hicks to learn more).
Golden apatite is a cool crystal to work with for achieving goals because it activates the solar plexus chakra, our personal power center of ambition, will, and achievement.
