The year 2020 has been a struggle for many; here in Australia we had an intense bushfire season which saw a record number of flora, fauna and entire communities directly impacted. I genuinely thought that given how bad a start the year was, that it could only get better from there.
And then Covid-19 hit the news.
I remember early on feeling almost instant anxiety over the situation. I recall being at university back in the mid 2000’s when an outbreak of Swine Flu was really taking off and Mum told me if it ever got to our shores I was to hop in the car and come straight home. I remember thinking she was over the top. And now, 15 years on, that advice had never rung truer. I made a plan; every week I was to get a couple extra things in my groceries just in case. I bought some hand sanitiser, just in case. And I ordered some masks, just in case. And when the panic buying hit, I felt like I was okay as I had already slowly been stocking up.
But it wasn’t just the toilet paper, pasta and hand sanitiser that I was mindful of having, it was also bearing in mind what would help my mental state.
Then, just as we began to accept a potential new reality of living life in a pandemic, the dumpster fire of 2020 decided to add in mass protests across the globe, recession, job insecurity and a toilet paper shortage.
Life in 2020 is just plain stressful.
And this is where crystals come in. I find great comfort from crystals. But I am a realist, I know having a pocket full of crystals in your bra is not going to protect you from this highly contagious virus. But crystals can have a totally different role in this whole mess, they can provide comfort.
So these are my top crystals to provide that Zen we so crave during this uncertain time (some may describe it as a shit show) that is 2020.
