During times of stress and overwhelming situations, you can easily become drained in many of your energy centers. One of the most stressful situations many people find themselves in at some point in their lives is caregiving. Whether caring for an aging parent, an ill child, or an injured or sick spouse, the task can take a huge toll on your mind, body, and spirit. Many tools, self-care tips, and resources are available for caregivers. Adding crystals to this list is one of my favorite ways to amplify the energy you are able to give back to yourself while you’re giving so much as a caregiver.
Three ways Moss Agate can soothe your caregiving soul:
- Connecting to Nature. Being a caregiver is often all-consuming and you don’t have much time for outdoor hobbies or activities. Moss agate is a power crystal that can connect you to nature even when you can’t be outside as often as you would like. Keep a moss agate in full view while in your caregiving space to remind you of your place in nature.
- Healing Heartache. A loved one is feeling sick or in pain is demanding on your own heart. Seeing someone struggling isn’t easy, and witnessing often uncontrollable circumstances can be heartbreaking. Moss agate is a powerful stone for soothing your heart. Keep one in your pocket, especially when you’re actively caregiving.
- Emotional Balance. Caregiving is a rollercoaster of feelings and experiences. When you feel scattered or triggered, hold a moss agate in your hands and breathe deeply to slow your mind and body and let your emotions re-balance.
When you are a caregiver, maintaining a connection to yourself is important to keep your energy high and your heart, soul, and mind in a positive place. Moss agate is the perfect power stone to bring this connection back into focus to keep you from losing yourself amid the stress of caregiving.
