Our fast-paced world full of technological innovation and non-stop social media interaction can sometimes seem a cold and impersonal place, leaving many longing for a simpler, more relaxing and, above all, more spiritual time. It’s little surprise then that increasing numbers of people in countries across the globe are adopting a new age lifestyle. Of course, ‘new age’ is a very broad term, but at its heart, it encompasses a return to earlier beliefs, a determination to live a more environmentally friendly life, and the importance of meditation and understanding yourself and your role in wider society. If you have friends who meet this description, then they’re sure to love these thoughtful new age gifts.
Sharing The Power Of Crystals
Crystals are natural mineral deposits that can be incredibly beautiful, but if used the right way, they can also bring powerful changes into your life, and with this in mind, people with a new age spirituality or an open mind will always welcome a gift of crystals. Humans have recognized the power of crystals for thousands of years, but only now do we once again understand this ancient knowledge. Different crystals have different powers, so while transparent quartz has the ability to purify the space it stands in, creating positive and calming energy, a pink quartz is associated with love and so makes an ideal addition to a bedroom. Take time to understand the meaning of crystals and stones, as shown on the 10awesome website, and you’ll be able to present a perfect and personalized gift.
Taking Control Of Your Dreams
Whilst we have control of our everyday waking lives, to some extent at least, for most of us, dreams are simply random things that come to us at night. It doesn’t have to be like this, as with a little training we can learn to control our dreams and interact with them in any way we choose. This is called lucid dreaming and can be achieved by simply believing you can do it and then following a series of instructions before retiring to bed. Having a lucid dream can be the most incredible experience because things that are impossible suddenly become possible. Buying an instruction book on lucid dreaming can help your friend enter an incredible new world, and a beautiful journal to record dreams in, an essential step in the process, is a great additional present.
Thoughtful Presents That Help The World
One of the key new age beliefs is that we must do all we can to protect the environment we live in, and so if your friends have adopted a greener lifestyle, there are plenty of presents that they’d particularly appreciate. Organic toiletries will always be welcome, of course, but an alternative gift would be to pay for a good cause in their name. It’s possible to adopt a goat or a village well. These gifts are actually given to communities in the developing world, but your friend will receive details of their gift and the ways that it will help people live better and healthier lives.
You don’t have to have wholeheartedly embraced the new age lifestyle to love these three gifts. Anyone would love organic soaps and toiletries, a beautiful journal, or eye-catching crystals, but if you have friends who have embraced their spiritual side, then these could be the most welcome present of them all, without costing the earth.
