Look, it’s been quite a year, and incidentally, at the time of publication, it seems like it just won’t quit. Now that we are spending more and more time at home, creating a sanctuary away from the news of the world is more important than ever.
I don’t know about you, but when I light a candle, I instantly feel calm. It could be the warmth of the candlelight or the flickering flame, but it truly takes me to a better place. Besides this, as a psychic medium, my house is filled with crystals. Some are next to my bed, on my windowsill, in an alter in a bookshelf, in the glove box of my car and even one in my bra. True story.
During such a turbulent time — and any time you feel you’re having a bit of a crisis — I urge you to light a candle, sit with a crystal and allow yourself to move through the emotions. Better yet, there are crystal-infused candles that can help create calm, peace and promote loving energies which can sit in your space and light the way.
To help you with this, I’ve rallied a list of 7 of the best crystal-infused candles to help you feel zen during this absolute shit fight of a time.
