Today I want to talk about my babies – my crystal babies!
I am excited that crystal healing is pretty popular these days. More than just pretty rocks, well-sourced crystals can be used for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Now before I lose you – they aren’t a cure-all. Picking up a crystal is not going to eradicate disease or have you win the lotto. But I believe in them, and if you do, too – read on.
Crystals help connect us to the earth’s energy. We can harness this energy through our thoughts, meditation, and touch. Here are some of my favorites:
Rose Quartz – Several years ago, I saw the most beautiful rose quartz at a yoga center in Massachusetts and it called to me. It has become one of my favorite possessions. Rose quartz works with our heart chakra to call in the energy of love and dispel negativity. I find it calming as well.
Purple Amethyst – Another anxiety soother, this stone also helps us connect with our higher selves and spirituality. This is a great one to use during meditation as it connects to our crown chakra.
Selenite – I’ve been told this is a great “beginner’s crystal”. This stone helps us move through mental blocks. It cleans the energy of other crystals around it.
Black Tourmaline – I keep this one right next to my bed every night. It cleans and repels negative energy, and is effective in blocking electromagnetic radiation.
