Daily Crystals: A Stone for Each Day of the Week

Daily Crystals: A Stone for Each Day of the Week


Have you ever wondered about the origins of our seven-day week? It dates back to the Babylonians and a decree by King Sargon I of Akkad around 2300 BCE. This number, considered lucky, appears frequently in mythology and religion. For instance, in Christianity, God created the world in seven days. In Hinduism, there are seven higher worlds and seven underworlds. In mythology, there are the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the seven chakras in the body. And at one time, it was thought there were seven planets, which were actually what we now consider 5 planets plus the sun and moon.  Each planet was associated with a day of the week to denote the unique energy of the day.

Around the world weeks have a different number of days or sometimes weeks were not part of the calendar system.

But we follow the seven-day week and have found it does create a rhythm that intertiwines the  blend of work, home duties, friends, fun, and rest and provides a natural cycle with a beginning, middle, and end. While many of us don't follow the traditional Monday-to-Friday workweek, we often have a recurring schedule that flows through the week. Here's a guide to enhancing each day with the power of crystals.
