Thanksgiving is a holiday that means a lot of different things to many people.
It’s a holiday that celebrates American values but in light of recent events I have begun to question some of these values.
Syrian refugees are running from ISIS much like our ancestors did the Crown.
But, this nation who is known for being built by immigrants is shunning immigrants now.
Perhaps right wing fanatics are scared of that the refugees will do to us what our ancestors did to the Native Americans.
So in light of what’s going on I have picked three gemstones that I believe will balance you during this turbulent holiday season:
Apophyllite is a gem that is known for helping you see the truth. It sheds light into your own behavior so you can see the hidden truth behind your actions. It is known as the Stone of Truth.
This stone helps you express your truth in a compassionate way. It brings harmony on all levels and helps you to stay level headed.
Rose Quartz is the Stone of Divine Love. It helps you to love yourself and other and promote emotional healing on all levels.
I chose these three because Thanksgiving should be a time of giving thanks, but due to our nation’s history of hurting people such as Native Americans, African Americans, and also because of recent events, we need to focus on finding our own truths–good and bad–accepting ourselves and forgiving both ourselves and others.
