Here I have listed just a few crystals and their meanings/healing properties, but there are literally hundreds of crystals in this wonderful world of ours!
When I first discovered crystals, which is many years ago, I like many just thought that they were beautiful. I had no idea that they had so many benefits, including healing, luck, and re-energising the mind, to name but a few.
They are also a wonderful tool for spiritual growth.
As these seemingly pretty rocks are so special it is also important to take good care of them and cleanse and charge them when needed, but more on that later!
So how do they work?, after all they are just rocks aren't they? Well yes they are but it is the way that they are formed, the structure internally, that is unique to each one and this means that each one resonates at a given frequency. This is what makes crystals so special. When they are used in the correct way they can stabilise the energy in the body, and different crystals work differently on different parts of the body.
One of the easiest, and in my opinion, best ways to harness the healing power of crystals is to just wear them!
Personally I wear many for this reason. I have rose quartz earrings, quartz and citrine bracelets and amethyst and amazonite pendants.
Another simple way to utilize the power of crystals is to just carry a small stone with you. Keep one in your pocket or purse.
You could also of course keep a group of crystals in your home. I have a lovely collection of natural clusters and points and as well as looking pretty they will emit a power that you cannot see. They will improve the atmosphere and send out their healing vibrations everywhere.
I have a health condition that has greatly benefitted from these magical stones, and it is worth noting that crystal healing is is ranked among the top best alternative health therapies, tested, proven, and trusted. I could write so much more about crystals and their amazing benefits but for now here are just a few of my favourites.
