I have been attracted to crystals for as long as I can remember. I was drawn to them because of their beautiful glow, the vivid range of colors, and the way they glinted and shined, some metallic, others iridescent. Crystals can be a lot more than just pretty stones, though. About a year ago, I learned there was much more to crystals than what meets the eye.
Crystals have been used for healing and protection for thousands of years. Even the ancient Egyptians worked with crystals. Throughout the ages, many people have believed that there is a unique story and spiritual message within each crystal.
There are so many stones, and each possesses varied uses. This might make crystal healing seem complicated and overwhelming for a beginner, but it really doesn’t have to be that way. It’s easy to begin a simple crystal practice.
Here are 5 simple ways to incorporate crystal healing into your life:
1. Carry a small tumbled stone in your pocket or purse.
2. Wear it as a necklace, bracelet, or earring
3. Place it on your altar, nightstand or desk
4. Sleep with it under your pillow
5. Meditate while holding it or laying it on your body
Each crystal has its own unique blueprint. Using the healing power of crystals as a tool for empowerment, balance, and enlightenment is directly related to your own personal beliefs. If you believe that crystals will help you on an energetic and vibrational level, they will! Below I have listed the crystals I work with the most.
