If you’re among the 75% of American adults who identify as spiritual, you likely have wondered how to get yourself more in touch with the flow of nature. Understanding healing crystals and how to use them is a great place to start. Read on to learn the basics of how to work with crystals and harness the power they possess.
What Are Healing Crystals?
At the most basic level, crystals are a gift from mother nature. They form naturally in the ground and are rare and beautiful wonders to behold. They’re often colorful, shining, and precious.
Many people believe that crystals help us to harness our energy as human beings.
We constantly pick up both positive and negative energy from others. We also give energy away with our dispositions and communication habits. If someone is happy near you, you’ll naturally become happy, and if they’re sad, you might find your mood getting lower than usual.
But crystals don’t have that. They each hold a stable and secure energetic vibration. It doesn’t fluctuate based on their environment or who’s holding onto them.
So, if you’re in a sad mood and are experiencing a negative mindset, working with a crystal could help you. Holding onto the crystal in the right way and being mindful of it could help you absorb the good vibes from the stone. Since crystals are so stable, they won’t take your bad mood from you- they’ll just dissipate it and restore your balance.
Healing Crystals: How to Use Them
There are many different ways that people work with healing crystals. Some people choose to take the ones with their favorite properties, create an evenly-balanced circle around themselves, and meditate in the center of the circle. This lets natural energies from the crystal flow evenly into your mind and spirit.
Other people hold the crystals while practicing meditation and mindfulness. If you close your eyes while running your fingers along some tourmaline, for example, you will likely experience a sense of security and feel grounded.
Some people even like to wear their favorite crystals so they have them at all times. For example, if you struggle with anxiety, an amethyst necklace or bracelet can help to make you feel calmer all day.
Choosing the Right Crystals
To appropriately harness the power of healing crystals, you’ll need to select the best one to suit your needs. Some amazing options are:
- Tiger’s eye for boosting confidence
- Rose quartz for self-love
- Citrine or sunstone for a feeling of warmth
- Amethyst for anxiety alleviation
- Moldavite for self-actualization and transcendence
These are just a few of the best options. Do your research and decide which will work best for you. And remember that you can choose multiple crystals and wear them at different times!
