Whether you are dreaming of travel, in the midst of an adventure or reminiscing about the places you’ve been, Byron Bay has been a location that has been attracting a transient tribe to it’s shores for centuries. Renown for it’s high vibe energy and healing frequencies created from the vortex of ley lines or song lines the area becomes home to many visitors who were initially just passing through. The energy of Australia’s most Easterly point has beckoned those with wanderlust, those looking for ascension and healing, and lovers of nature, into the green cauldron of dense flora and fauna from the ancient volcano.
Situated in the Northern Rivers of NSW, Byron Bay and it’s surrounds is a meeting place of waters, where the rivers unite with the ocean. In these areas the natural landscape creates thin energetic veils near the waters edge, ideal for communication with the higher realms and spirits of the earth. Tribes of country visited the area to gather and collaborate with other tribal communities, today Byron Bay is the meeting and melting pot of the global tribe. Whatever the reason for your visit, you will be greeted with the welcome sign to, “Slow down and chill out,” a sentiment many of us are either searching for, or embracing in the present times.
Byron Bay is governed and embraced by the seasons, tides and moons. Many visiting choose to reconnect with nature and “Byron time” as they slow down and embrace a slower rhythm and flowing cycle. It’s in the letting go, that many find themselves, their true purpose and the path they have been searching for. Sprawling beneath the diverse natural environments of the shire, is a layer of obsidian crystal, an organic transmuter of negative energy. The energetic properties of this layer of crystal radiates throughout the land above to the people connecting and living within the region. Black obsidian invites balance, grounds and simultaneously uplifts you through self awareness and healing, another ingredient that invites those looking for change and a holistic lifestyle.
Tiny Living for a Huge Life
Traveling and living large and consciously leaving a small or non existent footprint for many, means embracing a simple and minimalist lifestyle. The nomadic life invited through the space conscious tiny homes and van life in Byron Bay can be traced back to the kombies notoriously coupled with the carefree hippie lifestyle. Living from a backpack, or being space conscious creates a need for convenience, where multi purpose items are highly valued, this is especially true when selecting your crystals and gemstones to travel with you.
Crystals for the Transient & Nomadic Lifestyle
Whether your dashboard is your altar or you carry your crystals in a pouch, or wear them for their versatility as decoration and their healing properties, selecting the crystals that can support you through growth, transitions of change, all whilst assisting you to maintain alignment and flow when following your passion and purpose, is important and essential.
Crystals healers may keep a specific layout to attune to chakras in a pouch for travel, or you may use a travelers kit including a protector like Amethyst or Jade, a transmuter like Black Obsidian or Smoky Quartz, a healer like Rose Quartz, an amplifier like Clear Quartz and individual crystals associated with properties to support your purpose or passion like Herkimer Diamonds or a specific crystal that is calling for you to work with it.
If you are working with a particular crystal for your inner journey while you are walking through your travel adventure you may choose to keep it in a pouch or wrapped in a scarf for safe keeping when not in use. The benefit of traveling with a crystal is that as you slow down and detach from the “busy” life, you will become aware of the the crystal revealing and opening more to you as you align with it’s energies. When you align and are in flow, you will receive the maximum healing, wisdom and energy that you are ready for.
When in transit, nature, the changing scenery and the moment can invite an impromptu meditation session with your crystal, a session for clarity with crystal runes or insight with a crystal sphere. When you set up your energy vortex to open for vibrational frequency exchange, protect yourself by carrying a mobile altar with you. Four crystals are ideal to surround yourself and welcome the protective energies of the directions, or utlise them as an altar to bring your focus and awareness, combined with your intention and anchor them into this realm. A mobile altar of crystals carried in a pouch allows you the opportunity to use the pouch as a base for your altar to maintain centered energy. You may choose a prepackaged travel altar pouch or create one of your own desired gemstones, fossils and crystals.
