Essential Oils & Crystals for a Positive Mindset

Recently my essential oil group spent a month focusing on how to shift from a negative to a positive mindset. Our inner feelings and beliefs dominate our mindset. When we can identify the underlying feeling or belief, we can then start the shift from a negative to positive mindset.

These are some of our favorite essential oils and crystals to help us shift.

Shifting from overwhelm to motivated

We live in a world with a lot of noise and information overload. It can be so much that we feel smothered and weighed down which can create apathy and numbness. These are our favorites:

  • Magnify Your Purpose blend = Overwhelm can set in when you have lost your purpose. Smell this oil and let it get you back on track with your purpose.
  • Motivation blend = This was a team favorite and the name says it all! When you smell it or diffuse it, you will be amazed at what you get done.
  • Sacred Mountain blend = When you can calm and ground yourself, you can begin to re-energize and move out of the mindset of overwhelm.
  • Crystals I love for motivation are Celestite (helps calm when overwhelmed), Clear Quartz (amplifies your energy field simply by holding it) and Stellar Beam (Dog Tooth) Calcite (very high vibrational energy to get moving).

Shifting from worry & fear to strength & courage

Worry and fear are feelings of scarcity, lack, disempowerment, panic, and despair. All you are doing is traumatizing yourself about something in the future that has not and likely will not happen. Worry stores in the stomach as powerlessness and fear stores in the kidneys. These emotions will lower you in to a frequency where dis-ease can take root. So don’t go there! These are our favorites:

  • Valor blend = When we worry and are consumed with fear, we simply need to find our confidence and courage. Valor helps to shift your energy to get back on track.
  • Abundance blend = Abundance is an energy and mindset. It is about shifting to see all that you have in your life and that your glass is overflowing! When you see that, fear and worry melt away.
  • Present Time blend = When you are present, everything is perfect in that moment. Do not let your mindset get stuck in the past or worried and afraid of the future. This is a very calming blend that really helps to focus on being present.
  • Crystals I love for courage are Black Tourmaline (grounding and strength), Celestite (releases negative patterns of fear and worry) and Dumortierite (calming strength and courage).

Shifting from anger to forgiveness

Have you felt a lot of anger floating around in the air? Sometimes the anger that gets into our energy is actually not our own. But it still can still cause havoc in our body. Anger stores itself in our liver, and resentment in the spleen. When anger is not processed it can result in bitterness, intolerance, and settle into resentment … more toxic emotions for our poor body to deal with. These are our favorites:

  • Release blend = When you are ready to let go of toxic feelings and mindset. Topically apply over your liver and then deeply inhale it while saying “I release all negativity from body, mind and spirit”.
  • Forgiveness blend = As Mark Twain said, “”Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.” Forgiveness is beautiful once you find it. When you smell this blend it can bring you into a higher awareness and vibrational frequency to the point where you can let go and move on. Topically apply over your heart and then deeply inhale while saying “I am thankful for life’s experiences and the lessons they teach.”
  • Humility blend = Humility is the step after forgiveness so that we can learn and transform. It keeps you sweet and strong no matter what is happening around you.
  • Crystals I love for forgiveness are Blue Lace Agate (calming), Rose Quartz (forgiving) and Rutilated Quartz (let go of the past hurts).

Shifting from loneliness to self-love

Did you know that the remedy to loneliness is self-love? Lack of self-love can come from unresolved grief and when grief is not processed and released it can lead to depression. When you are comfortable hanging out with yourself, your thoughts, and engaging in self-care and personal development during isolation, you are less likely to feel lonely. These are our favorites:

  • Frankincense = Simply smelling this oil can get your energy moving. It is my favorite when missing a person, pet or lifestyle, to restore faith, to ground and uplift. It is also soothing for moments of unworthiness and loneliness.
  • White Angelica blend = You will want to slather all over yourself (your pets). I call it the Wrapped-In-A-Warm-Blanket Oil and the All-Is-Well oil. It is like being wrapped in love. It feels protective so that you do not feel the need to isolate. I love to use it with abused and shelter pets.
  • Hope blend = Hope is a good start with when it comes to deep emotional healing. Because other than love, we all need hope. When you combine the energy of Melissa for those who are highly sensitive with the deep grounding and empowerment of Juniper, Myrrh and Black Spruce, you find Hope! It is my go-to for deep emotions that need to be released. It will help you keep moving forward one day at a time.
  • Crystals I love for self-love are Citrine (happy vibe crystal), Lepidolite (contains lithium to pull out of grief and sadness) and Rose Quartz (self-love).

And always remember … Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change.

Forgiveness heals everything


Being human, it is natural that we will experience situations that are hurtful and cause resentment. I do not think that we can be humans without going through life unscathed. The key to moving beyond those moments is to forgive. Yet forgiveness is like finding the Holy Grail … sought after but not found.

Here’s a quick test:

  • Who or what do I need to forgive (be sure to include yourself)?
  • On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 1 being lowest), rate the resentment you feel towards the person or situation.

If you scored anything higher than a 4, it’s time to work on forgiveness. Why? Because when you are harboring unforgiveness, that’s negative energy that can create an energy block in your body. An energy block is like a clogged drain pipe and anything below that clog is not getting life-sustaining energy. Basically, those areas are being starved and you can end up with physical or emotional issues. Unforgiveness also blocks manifesting positive things that you desire.

My favorite statement about unforgiveness is: When you do not forgive, it is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. It’s so true! You may be consumed with resentment and clinging to a comment or situation that happened years ago and the other person is going on merrily with their life completely unaware that you are still festering. So who is really suffering? (Hint: The answer would be “you, the one drinking the poison.”)

Forgiveness is not something that you “do”, it is something that you feel. Saying “I forgive you” does not make it true. I go into great detail in one of my online classes about how to process unforgiveness; I dedicate an entire class to the topic because it is challenging to manifest what you want when you’re consumed with unforgiveness. The easiest way to describe getting to forgiveness is that when you can think of the person or situation and feel neutral, you have forgiven. There is no emotional connection. Anything other than neutrality means that you have some forgiveness to work out.

In 2012 I had a chance to hear Carolyn Myss speak and she talked about old energy as feeling the need to punish someone when something doesn’t go our way. Whereas the new energy is about forgiveness. Forgiveness is stopping ourselves from retaliating against a wrong, and recognizing that what happened brought out the worst in ourselves. Forgiveness is about choosing to stop the suffering and to forgive. When we forgive, we stop an energy cycle of pain; we stop the fear of the ego.

So how do you do it? Forgiveness is about seeing the other person or the situation in the best light that you can, release the person or situation, wish them well (even if they hurt you greatly because wishing them well may prevent someone else from being harmed) and then set them free. It’s a great visualization exercise to go through and you will feel better afterwards. I tell my students that when they do this, they are disconnecting an energy cord that has kept them connected to the person or situation. So when you release the cord, do not be surprised if the person makes an attempt to contact you, or a new situation develops exactly like the one you just released. If either of those happen, do not respond otherwise you will re-establish the connection.

What are some practical tools to support you while you are forgiving? These are my favs:


  • Crystals = a few of my favorites include Ajoite (photo), Apache Tear, Celestite, Cobalto Calcite, Danburite, Diopside, Rose Quartz, Sugilite. Obsidian Arrowheads are great for cord cutting but only do this only with a trained crystal healer.
  • Essential Oils = Young Living Forgiveness and Release oils.
  • Tapping = this is a great site to get you started


I use all 3 of these tools when I am processing forgiveness because they may a powerful combination. Such as tapping with essential oils on my fingertips, or meditating with crystals while I diffuse the essential oils.

A word of advice … do not beat yourself up if you have loads of things to forgive. This is a big issue for most people, yet most people do not realize it’s an issue. So you’re already ahead of game simply by reading this. But then do something about it so that unforgiveness doestn’t away at your physical health, emotional health and life anymore. Make a decision to release it and then do it! You will then know that you have truly forgiven when you feel lighter, healthier and neutral.

If you have a technique that has worked for you, please post a comment and share!
