Attract More by Doing Less: The Power of Pause
“Rise and grind!” You’ve probably seen that phrase all over your social media. A whole subculture has sprung up around “the hustle.” That’s a good thing, right?
Well, not always.
Self-discipline and hard work are important. You’re never going to achieve your dreams without them. However, it’s a different story if you find yourself not sleeping, not eating, or cutting out your loved ones so that you can work. Sacrificing your mental, emotional, or physical health won’t help you reach your goals. In fact, it can only hurt.
Taking breaks is just as important to success as working. When you make time for rest, you ground and cleanse yourself. This stillness realigns you with the universe. It is a crucial part to manifesting your dream life: attracting more by doing less.
Even fifteen minutes makes a difference! We have a simple crystal ritual that can help you slow down, leaving you refocused and refreshed.
You will need two crystals, one for calm and one for manifestation. For calming crystals, we recommend Amethyst, Clear Quartz, or Fluorite. Powerful attractive crystals include Amber, Citrine, Cinnabar, Garnet, Goldstone, Jasper, or Malachite. There are some amazing stones that can function in both ways, like Ametrine, Astrophyllite, Emerald, Jade, Moss Agate, Opal, or Rose Quartz; however, if you use one of these crystals, make sure that you still have two pieces.
To begin, find a quiet space where you can complete the ritual undisturbed. Place your manifestation crystal in the north of the room. In Feng Shui, this direction symbolizes career and luck. If you would like to attract financial abundance specifically, place your manifestation crystal in the Southeast area.
Next, take a step back and sit down on the floor. Hold your calming crystal in your hands, and take three deep, slow breaths. Notice how your body connects with the floor. Next, feel the crystal in your hands—its weight, its texture, its temperature. Imagine your stressors as streams of white light, flowing out of your body and into your calming crystal. With each exhale, send your stress into the stone. Keep going until you have released all of your anxiety.
Next, shift your focus from the calming crystal to the manifestation crystal. Imagine its vibrations as the warm, golden rays of the sun. Watch them emanate from the crystal, reaching all the way to you. Feel the warmth on your face. With each inhale, welcome this abundant energy into your body.
To finish, close your eyes. Take a few more deep breaths. When you are ready, stand up and tackle the rest of your day! Be sure to charge your calming crystal before you use it again; it has absorbed a lot of negativity and needs to be cleansed.
Art or Artifact? A Look at Crystal Skulls
Crystal skulls may seem strange and frightening—maybe you’ve seen Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull—but they are actually sources of empowerment.
The history of crystal skulls is mysterious. Most archaeologists agree that the “Mayan” and “Aztec” skulls that flooded the occult market in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries were hoaxes, even though skulls and crystals are both important to Mesoamerican cultures. However, that fact doesn’t mean that these visually striking stones aren’t significant or powerful!
Modern crystal skulls are handcrafted pieces of art. Some are anatomically correct, whereas others are more creative. Skulls emit their vibrations in all directions, easily anchoring a crystal grid or charging an entire room. They are perfect tools for learning and meditation, as well as décor.
Anatomically speaking, skulls house our brains, and crystal skulls correspond strongly to the mind. They promote knowledge, giving you the focus, dedication, and critical thinking skills to support your study. Crystal skulls also resonate with your Third Eye and Crown Chakras, boosting your intuition while providing psychic protection.

Pisces and the Power of Fluorite
Fluorite is a powerful and versatile crystal, and it has a special connection to the Pisces astrological sign. The fish constellation’s water energy harmonizes perfectly with Fluorite, whose name comes from the Latin verb “fluere (to flow).”
Pisces are extremely emotionally sensitive. This trait is both their superpower and their biggest weakness. Pisces’ extraordinary compassion allows them to be empathetic, supportive friends and community members, but it can also make them especially prone to melancholy. If a trusting Pisces is betrayed, they withdraw into themselves, cutting off their vulnerability.
Fluorite is here to help! This crystal absorbs negativity, and it is an excellent worry stone. Fluorite draws out stress and sadness, freeing Pisces from their effects. It also helps Pisces identify toxic relationships and habits before any damage is done. Fluorite gives emotional Pisces clarity so that they can see things for what they really are. With this mindset, Pisces are free to explore their innate creativity and spirituality.
