Last December, while taking a break from the crunch of a hard family health situation at home, I headed over to my local Target to wander around, and maybe pick up some holiday presents for my close people.

I always like to look for my book, Mood Crystals, and this time I was shocked to see our companion crystal card deck on the shelves for the first time! What a rush.

And, to get current, this past Monday I saw the Mood Crystals deck at my local Whole Foods!

Like the book, this crystal card deck was created to help you identify how you’re feeling and then guide you to crystal choices that will enhance your mental wellbeing.

Organized by emotional states, Mood Crystals will help you to cultivate your emotional intelligence as you develop greater awareness of your current mood and practice consciously with crystals. A questionnaire in the included booklet allows you to assess what you’re actually feeling and decide which crystal (or crystal combination) will be most beneficial to you at any given moment and which of the practices you should try with each particular crystal.

Coupled with recommended stones for each emotion, we share practices that can help you unlock the stones’ power, including moving, sound, and touch meditations, journaling exercises, and instructions for conscious crystal dreaming.

I might be biased, but the deck has become my favorite gift to give away (and to give to myself) over this past year.
