Crystals For New Year Resolutions: Shedding Old Skin and Welcoming 2021, In!
2020 put a huge damper on the whole new year new me optimism we all usually have, fortunately, it can only go up from here. Crystals for new year resolutions will make sure of it.
But remember, starting over, renewing intentions, and shedding skin don’t have to happen only once in a year. I encourage you to do it as often as you feel called to. The crystals chosen for this article are specifically for releasing, detoxing, renewing, and pressing forward--all of which the collective consciousness tends to do when the clock strikes midnight on January 1st.
So to put your spiritual best-foot-forward, gather these gems just before the ball drops, and prepare for your best year yet.
Crystals to Release the Past
Bringing your 2020 baggage into 2021 is a no-go. The old you, that unfulfilling job, the tired relationship, whatever it is you’re leaving in the past, these crystals will remove all lingering energetic residue of the old you.
Fluorite is great for dispelling negativity and pessimism. It can ease overthinking, worry, and anxiety that is often brought up by thoughts of the past. Fluorite is ideal for meditation practice to help you detach and observe thoughts and feelings that keep coming up so that you can acknowledge and release them.
Fluorite says, “Fulfilment and peace are only found in the present moment”.
Let go of toxic habits and limiting beliefs with obsidian. The almighty dark crystal can cut to the core of what’s holding you back in life. It’s also good for grounding energy so it doesn’t go wasted and can be used to create. Be prepared for major shifts when working with obsidian.
Obsidian says, “It is safe for me to leave the past behind”.
If you need deep-healing before you ring in the new year, reach for Malachite. It’s known as the powerful transformation crystal. Malachite helps restore self-worth, esteem, and confidence. If you need an accountability crystal, Malachite has away of ensuring you don’t repeat the lessons you’ve already learned.
Malachite says, “A lesson learned isn’t repeated”

Now that you’ve purged the past and are manifesting your coming year, it’s time to make space for all the good coming your way.
Protect your energy, shield your goals, and defend your newfound balance with tourmaline. I think of tourmaline as a celestial guard dog.

Tourmaline will absorb negativity and harmful wishes or intentions from others.

Do you need all the crystals for new year? No! Practicing or filling your home with the energy of just one or two of these is enough to multiply your manifesting powers. And if you don’t have a gem to remind you...I’ll say it from one Goddess to another, let go of 2020, open your heart up to endless love and opportunity, and have an amazing year.
