Whether you have an amazing bond with your mom (or a not-so-great one) you're sure to have a maternal figure that has graced you with the nurturing energy we associate with motherhood. Many mothers express that being a mom is the greatest position they've taken on (despite being underpaid & the potential tolls on their mental + physical health). Nonetheless, women from all walks of life have taken on the responsibility in the best way they know how. That can mean coddling a child to the point of disdain or losing a bond due to being unable to pull her own emotions & surrounding responsibilities together.
To truly empathize with the experience, you'd have to LIVE it; and since we can't always understand what we haven't endured, the next best thing we can offer is SUPPORT. If the mother in your life is redefining her life & needs, there's a gemstone for that. If she's become jaded in her POV & you're wanting to bring positivity into her world, there's one for that too. If your relationship with your mother is estranged, and it's hard to fathom the thought of reconciling at times ... you guessed it. There's a crystal to approach that as well. Here's a brief list of natural gemstones gifts for mom that will benefit her well beyond the holiday.
“Empathy is about finding echoes of another person in yourself.”
The gift majority of us desire most & are the most afraid to admit is the presence of another presence or support.
There are 3 essential ways crystals manage to transform your energy field and bring balance to your life including clearing & energizing.

Think of the crystals you wear like taking a vitamin. Below is a list of 10 great natural gemstones for women to better connect with their intuition, heighten their universal protection, or welcome more abundance in their lives.

Amethyst ✧ is a popular stone for stability and inner peace which also improves your intuition. It can help you sleep better, soothe headaches and alleviate the pain of menstrual cramps.
Hopefully, you've found an option that best suits the mama in your life (or you). Just a heads up, remember to clear any crystals you purchase to be sure it isn't holding any stagnant energy & program them to YOUR highest intent. Here at Mine Full, our stones are charged + cleansed prior to being shipped or sold but we encourage our supporters to do so as well when the time is right. One of the easiest ways to do this is to simply speak positive affirmations aloud while holding the crystals.
A good example is this:
“I ask that the highest vibration of love (God/the divine/the universe) connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy or any previous programming. I command this crystal to hold the intention of . . .”
Finish up with a few intentions for your crystal—energies that you wish it to hold for you. As with most things ending by expressing gratitude, (especially in multiples) allows you to resonate with the energy you seek to be in by emphasizing that what you’re asking for ALREADY EXISTS in the universe.
