Groundhog day is a tradition in the United States which started in the 1800's and revolves around an actual groundhog who emerges from his winter hibernation to predict the upcoming weather. If he sees his shadow, he goes back into hibernation because there are six more weeks of winter to come. If he does not see his shadow, the groundhog rejoices because it signifies the arrival of an early spring.
This occurs on the second day of the second month of each year, February 2nd, in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Considering that Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog, is only right 39% of the time, this tradition is obviously for the fun and festivities rather than a serious weather forecast.
For the festive spirit of Groundhog Day, we recommend wearing fun-loving animal jewelry like your adorable dolphin pendant, your kitty earrings, or your hedgehog necklace.
In the 1990's, comedic actor Bill Murray made an obscure tradition larger than life with his popular movie titled Groundhog Day. The movie brought this little known event to the mainstream masses.
Before the movie came out, only around 2,000 people would make the trek out to see our groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil. After the movie came out, tens of thousands of excited revelers now endure the frigid northeastern weather to be a part of this delightful day.
In the movie, Bill Murray relives the same day, Groundhog Day, over and over again. He is only able to break free of the day's cycle once he has learned his lessons and changed his life for the better.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could learn our lessons after the very first cycle? Or better yet, if we could learn our lessons virtually through other people's mistakes? Unfortunately, we are not always so eager to let go of our stubborn egos. Falling into the same revolving mistakes can take years to escape.
For example, we all know the friend who keeps going back to a toxic relationship or the person who creates their own cyclical cloud of doom with repetitive negative thoughts. Maybe you are this friend or this person!
Obsidian helps to cut ties and keeps you protected against unwanted energies. This black volcanic stone crystallizes fast upon spilling out onto the Earth's surface. Its no-nonsense energies help to quickly snip off your connection with that which is holding you back.
Obsidian wands, arrowheads or points are excellent to use to cut the energy cords with anyone with whom you have an unhealthy connection. Use these Obsidian healing tools while visualizing yourself energetically cutting the ties with this person.
Personally, I like to imagine an umbilical cord of energy at the Solar Plexus Chakra between myself and the other person. You may imagine an energy cord connection at the Heart or the Third Eye Chakra. Regardless of where you feel the connection, you may feel it stronger with some people than others.
Keep the cords strong with your healthy relationships and slice and shield the cords from the toxic ones. This may take some time and several visualization sessions to completely sever ties with the unwanted energies, but the relief you will feel as consequence will have you floating with joy.
As a bonus, Obsidian is also used to transmute negative energies to positive ones. Hold pieces of Obsidian and focus your annoying and unwanted energies towards the stones. If you are out and about, wear Obsidian jewelry as a shield from falling back into noxious patterns.
Malachite is a powerful stone for releasing emotional traumas. Your Groundhog day cycle may involve being stuck in past events. Use Malachite to bring these events to the surface and confront them for a cathartic relief. Again, like Obsidian, Malachite will take some time to work its magic, especially when dealing with such heavy issues.
Malachite stones are best used at the Heart Chakra. Lie with Malachite over your heart and allow the stone to pump out the energetic obstacles and blockages from your past. You may feel many uncontrollable emotions while using Malachite. Let them bubble up.
If you feel overwhelmed, take a break and hold a softer Heart Chakra stone-like Rose Quartz or Green Aventurine before returning to Malachite's care. Like a defibrillator, Malachite can pump free-flowing energy back into your life.
When not lying with the stones in healing, wear Malachite necklaces over your Heart Chakra to keep a physical reminder of your ultimate goal to break free of the past.
Charoite is a spiraling purple spiritual stone. It is a great aid in helping you to focus on the big picture. Imagine that you are at the end of your current life. You want to let go of your petty, everyday conflicts and instead, embrace all of the joys you experienced in this lifetime. All of the complaints, the grudges, the drama, and the resentment no longer serve a purpose. In this case, they are your Groundhog day, holding you back from spiritual freedom.
Charoite has a rich purple color corresponding with the Crown Chakra. Here is where you are energetically connected with your spiritual self. Place Charoite crystals at the top of your head and let your aura soar to meet your Higher Self.
I met my Higher Self for the first time during a spiritual hypnosis session. She told me her name was Joy. She resembled me physically, but energetically, she was only full of Love and Happiness.
If you don't have access to a hypnotherapist, you can go into your own self-hypnosis trance or meditative state and connect with your Higher Self. Your Higher Self has all of the answers. The answers that your physical self knows subconsciously but is constantly doubting. This doubt is what gets you into trouble, replaying the same situations in your Groundhog Day loop.
Let Charoite's balancing energies connect you with the higher realms and your spiritual self so that you can access the metaphysical knowledge banks and finally brush off irrelevant, earthly problems.
These are your three crystal recommendations for breaking free of your own cyclical Groundhog Day scenarios. Use Obsidian, Malachite, and Charoite together or one at a time.
Let us know how you succeed in your crystal healing endeavors to come out of the cold wintery shadows and relish in the extra days of sunshine!
