💎 Crystal Card of the Day for January 7th, 2018!
The most common need that we prioritize over our need for love and connection is certainty. Certainty covers a lot of bases, such as financial security, comfort, safety, predictability, and peace of mind. We all have the need for certainty, and need it fulfilled to one extent or another, so there's nothing inherently wrong with that. But when we prioritize certainty over love and connection, we withhold our love until our need for certainty is met, and this is what causes suffering. You see, sometimes love requires taking risks, growing our heart's capacity, and at times causes growing pains. You may also recognize someone who prioritizes certainty over love because he/she attempts to control his/her loved ones instead of giving them the freedom to express who they truly are and loving unconditionally.
Hiddenite is a beautiful heart chakra stone, imparting the understanding and experience of unconditional love and universal love to its wearer, allowing him/her to pass those experiences on to others, free of expectation and the need to control. Hiddenite is supportive of any gratitude practice, putting us in touch with a thankful state and one of hope, bringing our awareness to our innate connection to the Divine. This powerful yet gentle healer helps to alleviate emotional as well as physical issues, releases attachment by opening the heart to joy and love, and provides rejuvenation to the mind and heart. Getting out of the withholding and controlling pattern is important not only because it feels best to give our gift of love, but when we hold back, we are also withholding love from ourselves.
