What is the touchstone that helps you move through challenges? Is it a gemstone, a book, or a song? For people who have ended up homeless or in a difficult position, a touchstone keeps them grounded and it helps them feel loved.
Touchstones also give us an object to focus our love and passion. They can give us hope and faith that our life circumstances will improve even in the worst situations. I know during my own hardships, my touchstones were most often gemstones, feathers, or other metaphysical objects. My journals are often touchstones too as I document the events in my life and also the information that comes to me through spirit.
Other touchstones are Oracle or tarot card decks, figurines of saints, animals, or angels, pictures, postcards, letters sent to me from friends, jewelry, or a favorite article of clothing. The main thing is that touchstones are something tangible that contain richer meaning for us. A touchstone uplifts us by reminding us of better times in the past and better times in the future by keeping us anchored in the present moment.
Other less tangible touchstones are favorite songs, favorite colors, a favorite number, or a cherished memory. A touchstone could be a scene in a movie or a book that we repeat in our minds that give us hope or perhaps, the words of a gifted psychic that saw positive results for our efforts or aspirations.
Even if you are sailing through happier times now, find or create a touchstone. In all our lives, there are ups and downs; good times and tragic times. The touchstone travels with us through the gamut of life circumstances. Choose your touchstone wisely for it will travel with you and it will feel like a friend.
