Every year we take time to cultivate and create space for self love, reflection, and self exploration in the cold bones of winter. It can be a challenging and cathartic time of death and rebirth as we explore our inner selves and figure out what we truly want, what we desire and how we wish to exist in this world, but there’s power here if you’re willing to explore. Every time we crumble our foundations we have an opportunity to rebuild. As the powerful Kobe Bryant said “Everything negative – pressure, challenges- is all an opportunity for me to rise.”
At Malabella we believe in taking time and energy to explore the self, dig deep and reflect on what truly makes us happy, mind, body, and soul. Here’s our favorite crystals for this time of year. You can simply add them around your house as a reminder of your journey, wear jewels that support your intention, or meditate with them to guide your thought patterns towards your dreams.
