If the dystopian nightmare that is 2020 is spilling over into your sleep and causing you to have weird dreams, you are not alone! I have seen countless articles come out about “weird pandemic dreams” and all of my friends seem to be confirming this as well. With the combination of strange waking life, shifting planetary / lunar / celestial influences, and more time at home to slip into dreamland, it’s no wonder so many of us are having strange experiences at night.

There is an easy solution that can magically influence your dream experiences: a dream sachet, also known as a dream pillow.

Ahh, another late evening blurring into early morning. Is anyone else creeping closer and closer to nocturnal hours these days? My natural sleep schedule seems to prefer 3am to 12pm as hibernation time, though I try to set my alarm for 11:11am as it makes me feel lucky. As I ponder whether to attempt to go to sleep soon, I find myself feeling drawn to hold a piece of selenite. I think this crystal has a Sunday night message for us all, as it can be particularly helpful during these trying times. Let’s reflect on the magical meaning of selenite!
Literally everyone I know is reporting crazy dreams! As a byproduct of our disrupted lives and schedules, many people are reporting especially unusual sleep patterns too.

Everyone still hanging in there out there? Hell yeah you are! I’m proud of all of you keeping your shit together as best as possible.
I’m a firm believer that thoughts become things, and your words “spell” out your reality. (“That’s why it’s called spelling,” said Ralph Smart, and I agree.) These past few weeks, so many changes have happened in the world around us, and there are many elements of our lives that feel out of our control. Even so, it is vital in times like these to create our own internal source of reassurance that we are strong enough to overcome the challenges coming our way. As we head towards the upcoming full moon on April 7th, it is crucial to turn our attention as much as possible to what we want to attract into our lives.
If I could only choose one spell to take to a desert island, this would be it.

Read on for my favorite way to program crystals with your intentions by getting all fired up.
You might have heard crystals can bring you an unlimited source of good vibes. You might be hearing all about how crystals can help you reduce stress, cope with depression, or just improve your overall quality of life. But you might also be wondering, how the heck do you actually use these things? How do we tap into the infinite benefits supposedly enclosed in these shiny little guys?
Well wonder no more, because I’m totally here to help you through this. I’ve made a list of my top five favorite ways to use crystals. These tips will work with literally any kind of crystal, so feel free to experiment! If you’re new to crystals, go and pick one out! Seriously, just try listening to your first instinct and take home the one that first grabs your attention. (Unless that’s the $3,500 geode in the window that you’ll need to open a new credit card for, in which case, maybe work up to that eventually.)
Now that you have a sparkly new friend, keep one really important thing in mind! Ultimately, a crystal’s true meaning is what it means to you. This can be as life-altering or as lighthearted as you care to think of it. Aside from all the folklore and fabled magical properties, the true power of a crystal is that it triggers an association in your mind with the characteristics it represents. It is a tangible reminder of what you’re choosing to invite more of into your life. You can hold it and behold it, you can see it and believe in it. But ultimately the qualities being brought to the surface are qualities already in you. Sometimes you just need to make things feel a little more magical to see it.
