Beginner’s Guide to Healing Crystals. What You Need to Know
Over the past couple of months, I have become more and more interested in the healing properties of crystals. I have always drawn to crystals and gemstones, as I have been with any other beautiful objects. At that time, I just saw them as pretty in jewelry or as home decor.
That is until I heard about their amazing healing properties. A cynic by nature, I wasn’t immediately drawn into the claims. But with an open mind, and an open heart, I thought, “what do I have to lose?”. And thus began what can only be described as a love affair.
This little interest has quickly grown into a budding collection obsession.
What was once my dirty little secret, has transformed into something I can’t stop talking about. I quickly began to realize, that it wasn’t a secret at all. I continue to be surprised by people proudly describing their experiences with crystals, and why they never leave home without them.
What Are Healing Crystals?
For centuries, ancient civilizations have used the healing properties and energy of crystals to achieve inner peace, health, and prosperity.
They have been seen as mother nature’s natural healers, and each has been said to have their own unique properties.
The ancient Egyptians believed that these gemstones held the power to restore health, and were often buried with quartz placed on their forehead to guide the deceased safely into the afterlife.
Celebrities have even embraced the trend. Victoria Beckham carries a crystal black skull in her handbag. Adele attributed one of her best comeback performances to her “bloody crystals”. Lucy Hale has admitted to a growing crystal collection, despite originally being a non-believer.
Many people are turning to ancient techniques to heal their ailments. There is no doubt that these crystals are beautiful, but can they really impact your well-being? While they may not cure traditional medical diseases, they have been said to provide inner peace in our increasingly stressful and faced paced lifestyles.
From dedicated yoga enthusiasts, new agers, and those who have never meditated, more and more people are turning to the healing energy of crystal to increase their happiness and wellbeing.
It may sound eccentric, but who couldn’t use a little extra positive mojo in their lives. While I would never advocate crystals as a replacement for modern medicine for medical diseases, medicine doesn’t soothe the soul.
