For as long as human’s have existed on this Earth, they have used crystals and stones for various religious and medicinal purposes. The Ancient Sumerians were one of the first people to use crystals in magic formulas, and the Ancient Egyptians used Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise, Carnelian, Emerald, and Clear Quartz in their jewelry. Ancient Greeks believed these natural stones had spiritual and cosmic energy powerful for healing and transformation. Green stones, like Malachite and Emerald, were used to signify the heart of the deceased and were included in burials. Amethyst means ‘not drunken’ and was worn as an amulet to prevent both drunkenness and hangovers. Many people today still believe in the power of crystals to heal and transform. Quartz is one of the most recognized crystals and is used by tens of thousands of people every day—to power their watches! Ancient Japanese believed quartz formed from the breath of a white dragon and regarded it as representing perfection. It is considered to be the highest most mutable form of energy, adapting to the specific needs of the user.

Despite the fact that hard core science may not stand behind the effectiveness of crystals and healing—I believe! I believe that crystals and stones have healing properties that work with my body and its make up to help me feel good. Like any sort of medicine or remedy, what works for some people may not work for others, and that’s okay. We are all on our own journey!

benefits-of-healing-crystalsI’ve been using crystals for a little over three years, and I have seen an improvement in my mental and physical health, as well as my overall space and attitude toward my surroundings. I have used various crystals to improve my depression, anxiety, and stress, as well as to treat carpel tunnel syndrome. Most importantly, I have found something to fill my personal space with that creates a relaxing environment to live in. I have a full collection of crystals ranging from small stones to larger pieces that I use for my alter. For everyday use, I wear various crystals depending on what I am doing that day, where I am going, and who I am seeing. What’s important is that it makes me happy and makes me feel good, which I think is essentially why crystals can be powerful. In the gallery, I share with you some of the crystals that have ‘spoken to me’. They are readily found at your local health food shop, naturopathic store, or even your local farmer’s market! I find a lot of information and purchase many of my crystals on healingcrystals.com. They have given me encouragement and strength, and have helped to create a more positive space in my home. These stones were some of the first in my collection. Maybe they will inspire you to explore crystals for healing and well-being.
