With the heat “on” and people sharing how hot it’s been with summer kicking in (wishing things would cool off a bit), I thought I’d share this article I wrote a few years back about how choosing a crystal for its calming properties can help soothe your summer heat experience and help return balance and harmony to your life.

Every little bit of support we can get is helpful right? And when we’re feeling like a lot is going on in our lives, coupled with the temperatures rising, it can sure be nice to alleviate hitting the “boiling point.” 🙂
I’ll always share how I find crystals to be amazingly supportive friends and I’ll continue to provide supportive information, as well as steward crystals, as long as I’m guided to and people are desiring the connections.
That being said, the crystal friend fun continues with some more new additions to the Crystal Illumination family. You’ll find that I will be continually adding new crystalline energies (including Crystal Illuminations sacred paintings, as well as individual crystals) to my Etsy Shop as I have time to post them.
Some of the new crystals featured include two new pendants that I just adore and two magical Moldavite (as you see pictured here – click to enlarge), as well as Andaras, and some animal totem stones. Not to mention of course there are a variety of other crystal friends for individual needs…all potent, precious, and perfectly attuned to the current energies, as well as embody the “cooling” and calming effect that was mentioned in the article above.
You’ll discover crystals for all price points and desires, including very high end to extremely affordable. To see more images of the featured pieces you see here, visit the link below.

Everything is intuitively chosen for the vibrational frequency each crystal friend emanates and infused with Reiki Love.
If you have any questions or are particularly interested in a specific crystal you may not see in the shop, you can message me at email@example.com and I’d be happy to assist in helping you find something perfect for you.
Cooling Crystals That Soothe the Mind, Body and Soul – Support for those Hot Summer Days and Inner Boiling Points
As we start to approach those long, hot summer days (my favorite!) and the sun makes its stage performance, the effects of its presence can sometimes be more far-reaching and effectual than you may realize (albeit, quite enjoyable in my book!) During heat waves the body has to work much harder to maintain a normal temperature. Excessive heat can not only result in serious health threats by pushing the human body beyond its limits, but can also have an effect on your mental, emotional and spiritual states of mind as well. Heat cramps, exhaustion and strokes are among the possible physical challenges you might experience, but more common is dehydration. However, the heat can also turn up the possibilities for irritability, stress, frustration, tendency towards intolerance, aggression and confrontation, lack of energy, lack of interest in new ventures, and over-stimulation that draws you outward and away from your inner needs.
There are many measures you can take to prevent heat-related illnesses including avoiding too much sun and extreme temperature changes, slowing down and avoiding strenuous activity, staying indoors as much as possible and keeping your space cool, wearing loose, lightweight and light-colored clothing covering as much skin as possible, protecting your skin with SPF, protecting your face and head with hats, planning major activities for early morning or evening, and especially drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day (water is our best friend!), and avoiding alcoholic beverages.
However, another supportive tactic can be found in wearing and surrounding yourself with crystals that contain within them cooling elements to help adjust more than just your physical temperature, but your overall state of being. These crystals support a calming and beneficial effect that supports a return to harmony and balance during the summer months.
Crystals can and have been used for healing or environmental enhancements for millennia. They possess unique properties and subtle vibrations that affect the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels of being. Since ancient times, healers have been familiar with the fact that crystals possess varying energies and can either be energizing or more calming; sedating or stimulating. So choosing a crystal for its calming properties can help soothe your summer heat experience and help return balance and harmony to your life.
Crystal guides, such as The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall, or Love is in the Earth by Melody (two of my favs), can be used to decipher the properties of crystals and help you find what you are looking for, but sometimes merely the color of the crystal can be very telling, as in the ocean color of aquamarine expressing its calming elements.

Crystals are one such tool that can promote calming tendencies on physical and emotional levels, thus promoting overall well being.
