This week, I arrived into the Street Yoga and greeted my new tool for abundance & success, a vivid and eye-catching citrine.

I was further reinforced about the effectiveness of this method in Cara Lee’s Street Yoga Workshop on Empathic Engagement. She offered us a moment to experience the grounding effects of rocks. Yes, simply rocks. Cara laid out a circle of lovely, smooth rocks collected at the ocean here in Oregon’s majestic coast. We were invited to each pick a rock that called to us, and hold it for a simple meditation. I knew exactly which rock I wanted to pick, and once it was in my hands it fit perfectly. Its heavy, cool properties seemed to absorb any chaotic feelings within me and sing the rhythmic melody of the eternal ocean. Cara explained that just by bringing a piece of the Earth into our workplace or yoga studio or home, the grounded nature of this planet and its abundant source of healing becomes accessible.


There are so many tools out there for caregivers, trauma survivors, and everyone in-between. Resources such as The Trauma Toolkit by Susan Pease Banitt are emerging with numerous healing methods from cultures all over the world. From Aromatherapy to Shamanic Journeying, there is something for everyone.


I would love to share with you the properties of the gemstone Citrine. If this speaks to you, an amazing resource for studying crystals and stones is the tome, Love Is In The Earth.  Explore hundreds of crystals to suit your needs and goals.
