What a difference a year makes! I was lucky enough to have reviewed some past Awakening in a Box boxes over a year ago (which I loved)- but to see how much the quality has been amped up & the goodies included this time around was quite astounding! As I said, these boxes were awesome a year ago & now they are even better! Creator Megan, now has the crystal index cards on nice, vibrant, gorgeous, sturdy business card-type stock as opposed to the regular paper from before. Little touches like that are wonderful in showing just how streamlined & gorgeous each of these boxes are.

Just look at how jam-packed this box is! It was full of such amazing goodies & was so much fun to uncover each item within.

Let’s take a closer look at the contents of the beautiful Mother Earth Energy box, shall we?

The Crystals:
(This month all the crystals were cleansed & charged in moonlight!)

All the Crystals pretty

Crystals and Cards
Aragonite
:
Aragonite is known to be an Earth healer, & promotes conservation of Earth’s precious resources. Aragonite works with all of the chakras, but can work specifically with the Root Chakra for grounding & for creating a deeper connection to Planet Earth.

Aligns with the Root, Sacral & Crown Chakras & Zodiac sign Capricorn.

Moss Agate:
Moss Agate is known to bring new beginnings to anyone searching for a fresh start or reset. It is also associated with nature spirits bringing healing Earth energy into the world. Put tumbled Moss Agate around plants for better growth! The gentle, nurturing energy of Moss Agate encourages the user to appreciate & enjoy each moment on Earth, & assists the planet in its healing as well.

Aligns with the Heart & Crown Chakras & Zodiac sign Virgo.

Trio
Crystals with the Cards
Petrified Wood:
Petrified Wood is so full of Earth energy & is a great grounding stone. Use it during meditation when you are feeling scattered & chaotic. Helps you access universal consciousness held deep within our Earth & shares wisdom & lessons of the past. Petrified Wood is often used for channeling nature spirits that may be holding divine wisdom & sacred messages.

Aligns with the Root & Heart Chakras & Zodiac sign Leo.

Crystal Trio
Jasper:
Jasper encourages you to be present in your physical body & conscious of Nature & your surroundings. It helps you to revel in moments of isolation to absorb, reflect, & connect with these energies & ignites an awareness of the spiritual connection we hold with all living things. Jasper is known as the supreme nurturer. It can support you during times of stress, bring a sense of tranquility & wholeness. Used in healing, it unifies all aspects of your life.

Aligns with the Root & Sacral Chakras & Zodiac signs Leo & Virgo.

Big Crytals
Miriam Stone:
Miriam Stone is naturally made up of Hematite iron & Fossilized shells which means they hold ancient remnants of earth energy inside each stone. Celebrated by many cultures for centuries. Fossils, because of their age are often used as talismans for protection & long life. They are links to the past &, as such, can be helpful for past-life meditation, astral travel & increased knowledge of ancient ways. Miriam Stone is associated with the Earth element, which can heighten ones intuition, especially when learning about crystals.

Aligns with the Third Eye, Root & Solar Plexus Chakras & Zodiac signs Capricorn & Virgo.

Big Stones

All of the crystals/rocks in Awakening in a Box are incredibly high-quality stones. I really enjoy that I often don’t already own the stones that they provide- they seem to pick out harder to find (for me anyway) speicimens so they really add a wonderful variety to my growing collection of crystals/stones/gems.

Frankincense & Myrrh Incense Cones:
A combination of two fragrances used since ancient times & known for their relaxing & meditative qualities.

Incense

This incense smells amazing! It’s not too intense like some can sometimes be to me. I really like it.

Alfalfa:
Alfalfa is traditionally used as an herb of prosperity & money gathering & as proof against hunger due to a lack of money. It is also connected to Feminine Energy, Venus & Earth.

Alfalfa
This has a beautiful, fresh scent to it. I placed some into the hidden chamber of my wooden pendulum.

Wooden Pendulum with Hidden Chamber:

Pendulum
This beautifully made Wooden Pendulum contains a hidden chamber at the top that you can store your herb holding powerful earth energy.

Pendulum Open
I think the hidden chamber in the pendulum was such a neat touch. The wood the pendulum is made out of is so smooth & nice. It has such a great feel to it & is very easy to work with.

Tree of Life Pendulum Map:

Pendulum Map alone
This gorgeous pendulum maps consists of different words that you hold your pendulum over to get responses.

Pendulum and Map
Hand Carved Sacred Wooden Box:

Sacred Box
This Hand Carved Sacred Wooden Box is beyond stunning! The flower details on the lid & the sides are so intricate & pretty. The wood itself is a quality wood with a great shine to it. It has an ancient, yet expensive feeling to it.

Sacred Box Open
Just look at the detailed work up close!

Sacred Box Details Up Close
It is perfect for all of my loose crystals that have been sitting on my desk without a home. It’s as if it was tailor-made for me!

Sterling Silver Earth Charm/Pendant Necklace:

Globe Necklace Up Close
This is a lovely & delicate Earth necklace on a silver snake chain.

I was beyond happy with all of the contents of this box. Not only were each of the items within beautiful they were obviously high-quality & perfectly chosen to fit the month’s Mother Earth Energy theme. Every item made sense & you could tell much thought & care went into the curation of this box.

My Favorite Items
I felt that the Mother Earth Energy theme was really well-done. All the items inside the box fit incredibly well with the overall theme & provided you with very interesting items that were exciting to try, to use & to add to my own sacred altar space & into my life.

sacred Box with Crystals
While I absolutely adored everything in this box, I do have a few favorite standouts which were: the Hand Carved Sacred Wooden Box (I had been on the search for a box like this to no avail but then alas, the universe made it happen with this beautiful piece! The perfect home for all my tiny collection of loose crystals), all of the crystals: Aragonite, Moss Agate, Petrified Wood, Jasper & Miriam Stone (many of which I didn’t already have specimens of & the quality of each stone was perfection. They all hah such a good & positive vibration to them), & finally the Wooden Pendulum with Chamber & Tree of Life Pendulum Map (I am newer to using pendulums & quite obsessed! I had never known that they came in a wood form, so this one was quite exciting to see, not to mention the fun aspect of the little hidden chamber on top to place sacred herbs. The Tree of Life Pendulum Map that goes along with the Wooden Pendulum is wonderful & very pretty with its Tree of Life depiction.

All Of It
Awakening in Box packs a serious punch & has been one of my top favorites in my The Subscription Box Chronicles series for the thought & care that was put into each one. I urge you to try Awakening in a Box for yourself, it is a nice price point & a great start into collecting & understanding about different types of crystals/minerals.
