Labor Day: Find New Purpose in Your Work

Labor Day: Find New Purpose in Your Work

For many of us, Labor Day signifies the end of summer with barbecues, parades, and retail sales extravaganzas.

But the true significance of Labor Day often gets lost in the hullabaloo:  more than 100 years ago, American Labor Unions fought to give us a five-day work week and to remove children from grueling, often dangerous factory jobs.

In the 21st Century, we like to think our lives are so much better than the lives of our great-grandfathers.  But consider this:  in our global economy, Americans are working longer hours, suffering more stress-related heath crises, and reeling under more financial debt than our great-grandfathers ever dreamed of.

So this Labor Day Weekend, as you take a much needed break from your physical workspace, do yourself a favor:  free yourself from the tyranny of your cell phone, television, and email.  Reconnect with the life-affirming rhythms of the Earth Mother:  Hike.  Fish.  Weed your garden.  Nap in the shady of a friendly, old tree.  Listen to the bees buzz.  Watch the glory of the sun as it sets over Lake Travis.  You’ll be amazed how this mental and emotional vacation revitalizes you and helps your find new purpose in your work.

On Tuesday morning, if you want to boost your business success -– or if you need confidence to help you find a new job where your talents can truly shine –- slip one of these trusty minerals into your pocket:

  • Green Aventurine – to attract luck and opportunity. Helps manifest prosperity. Provides relief in times of stress or challenge. (Alternative stones: green jade, peridot, malachite, green garnet.)
  • Citrine – “The Merchant’s Stone.” Used to increase optimism, self-worth, personal power, and hope; enhances creativity and the intellect; strengthens intention, attracts abundance. (Alternative stones: yellow tourmaline, yellow calcite)
  • Black Sapphire – Provides grounding, calming, and confidence in stressful situations; particularly useful if you want to create stability in employment. Repels negativity. (Alternative stones: black tourmaline, black obsidian, smoky quartz)

How to Clear and Heal the Heart Chakra and the Emotional Body with Crystals

Healing the emotions is key to healing all levels of the being. It would be a wonderful thing if we were taught in elementary school how to handle our emotions in healthy and productive ways. Instead, many of us got a message from society that it isn’t appropriate to express our feelings in the moment, and so many of us end up suppressing them. We stuff them down and try to forget about them. But the energy of these emotions doesn’t just disappear.
