All people have a leadership quality available to them, that they can tap into at anytime the situation requires.
I have often met people who at first judgment consider me to be a charismatic person, who is outspoken and possesses the ingenuity to create ideas and construct decisions in order to make things happen. This version of me is true as I do possess these abilities, however; what is also true is that over the years I have been my biggest set back, by not understanding my abilities and using my energy creatively and correctly. At times my lack of knowledge about myself has led me to say no to opportunities that have come my way, because of the belief systems that I have adopted that some people are leaders and some people are not. My historical attitude towards what a leader looked like in my mind, was mainly based on an ingrained societal imprint. I found that the firsts steps I could take in reprogramming my attitude was to re-distinguish the meaning of the word leadership and to disconnect it from the societal norms.
Leadership in Our Lives
With the UK elections coming up on the 8th June, I have been thinking about the ways in which negative or positive leadership can impact all our lives. I have been considering crystals that are beneficial for all leaders, to enhance positive leadership and structure within decision-making processes, to increase productivity and organisation.
Taking leadership is one of the toughest challenges that most people will face, this can be in the home, workplace or community. However taking the lead can open up enriching opportunities that can offer positive experiences and learning opportunities and the only way to take advantage of this is to say yes to opportunities. Not everyone will say yes and this can be for a number of reasons. These can range from lack of motivation, low self-esteem and a feeling of not being cut out for the job.
I believe that all individuals have a leadership quality available to them, that they can tap into at anytime the situation requires. This quality starts with having a positive state of mind and a set of energetically charged belief systems that can act as an inspirational prompt.
The ability to make thinks happen and be effective at what you do begins with energy, when your leadership energy is depleted its easy to find that the power source is not available when required, in order to tap into the ability and make good decisions. I believe the first step towards positive and fulfilling leadership is to start by working on balancing the energy that fuels this ability.

Our Understanding of Aventurine
Along your journey towards leadership and achieving your goals, Aventurine is a crystal that can support in harnessing the abilities that you possess. Aventurine is a multi faceted crystal as it is able to enhance your abilities to generate the energy required to carry out your ambitions and goals. Whilst at the same time when used in Chakra healing and Meditation, Aventurine can support in grounding and protecting the energy that has been created.
If you are seeking to enhance your leadership abilities so that you can become a positive influence in your home, within your work, local, national or international community, it is possible. Society predetermine that some people are leaders and some people are not, I believe that this is a societal myth. We are all leaders. The foundation of constructive, positive, productive leadership cannot be quantified by material gains. Often our most productive leaders and influencers in society who truly touch the heart of what matters, go unnoticed by mainstream media.
Being a positive leader starts with creating, recognising and tapping into the energy from within yourself to recognise the qualities that you possess. When you learn how to develop these qualities, you will realise that what you harness will attract the external energy required to create a momentum of productivity. Productivity can manifest itself in a subtle way as well as on a grand scale. The humour and openness that Aventurine inspires, supports in the development of leaders that are not constantly judgmental of themselves and others but can recognise when they and leaders around them are working to their best.
