Using Healing Crystals to Promote Gratitude


Using Healing Crystals to Promote Gratitude

Oftentimes we take for granted all the blessings that we are receiving daily, and we don’t take time out to acknowledge and give thanks for those blessings. We are officially reminded each year, in the form of a national holiday that the practice of gratitude is imperative.

In the United States, Canada, Brazil, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Liberia, and the sub-national entities Leiden, Norfolk Island, and Puerto Rico, a national holiday has been established in November for the purpose of mindful thankfulness and gratitude. Similarly named festival holidays occur in Germany and Japan with the purpose of heightening our awareness to give thanks for the lessons and blessing that we have and are receiving.

November 25th, Thanksgiving Day, has been established as the official day for many to collectively acknowledge and express gratitude for all the good that is present in their life. Many families have gratitude rituals that they acknowledge while gathering on that day. For some, Thanksgiving Day gives them the opportunity to share with others many of the things that they are grateful for.

One day of expressing thankfulness and gratitude isn’t enough to sustain the happiness in our lives, so as a daily practice it is wise to count our blessings, take notice of the simple pleasures we enjoy, and acknowledge everything we receive as a gift. Gratitude shifts your life from what is lacking to recognizing the abundance that is already present.

Each day we should take time to notice and reflect upon the things that we are thankful for so that we may experience more positive emotions, express compassion, and kindness, and feel more alive. Gratitude is a feeling that we should maintain to ensure a happy life.

Many times, especially during any type of hardship, or any other discomfort, lack, or barrier, one may find difficulty in expressing gratitude. We still must be grateful because we all have so much to be grateful for.  No matter how bad we may think things are, if we are experiencing the discomfort – we are alive, and the gratitude starts there.

To promote feelings of gratitude, we can use healing crystals on our journey to achieve the goal of being grateful for everything and everyone in your life. The proper use of healing crystals is known to promote feelings that will ensure that you can gain the mental and emotional freedom to begin to feel gratitude in everything in life and live and think at a higher vibration.

A few healing crystals that are known to promote gratitude are Rose Quartz, Amethyst, and Citrine.


Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing, and feelings of peace. 

Using Rose Quartz during meditation or wearing it as jewelry helps you to appreciate yourself and others. During the appreciation process, you may find that you are appreciative of things that occur in life (like the sun rising, or the oxygen that we breathe that helps to sustain our lives) as well as the things that others may do to make your life a little more comfortable.



Amethyst helps to infuse your energy with loving gratitude. Amethyst is the crystal of inner peace and transformation, keeps you calm, focused and appreciative of life around you. 

Meditating with Amethyst, carrying it close to you or wearing it will promote those feelings of gratitude and greatly assist with changing your outlook on life.



Citrine holds a joyful energy and is known for putting the wearer in high vibration while it cultivates expressing gratitude.

When using or wearing Citrine, set the intention to manifest abundance or whatever your heart desires; the manifestation is sure to give you an abundance of things to be grateful for.
