Crystal healing is everything! Healing crystals are like potato chips, you can never have just one and there are so many to choose from that you can live a life time and not collect them all. With so many options, colors, purposes it feel overwhelming to pick the right piece especially if you are new to the crystal game. My advice is to pace yourself and go with what feels good…like for real. Take a few deep breaths, take a look around, pick-up a few stones. What ever stone you are naturally attracted to or that feels good when you pick-it up is the one you need. You don’t have to over analyze things, don’t expect to have a huge physical reaction or life changing moment; crystal energy can range from subtle to strong; don’t have an expectation just follow your instincts.
If you are just starting your spiritual tool-box and are looking for suggestions here are my picks for crystals everyone should own.
This crystal cleanses the aura, opens the chakras and recharges your energy. It’s a crystal powerhouse that can be used for spiritual, mental, and emotional healing, strengthening, and balance. It resonates with all of the chakras (or energy centers) and can be placed anywhere on the body. It never needs to be cleansed and can be used to cleanse and charge other stones.
This crystal is a member of the quartz family and has several beneficial properties that make it one of my absolute must haves. Citrine is yellow in color and resonates with the solar plexus chakra. This stone encourages us to be optimistic, positive, creative, and confident. It’s energy is protective, attracts success and friendship, and motivates us to follow our passion. You should wear or carry this stone with you everyday for a boost of confidence and good luck. It’s also beneficial for creative types, when they need to turn up their creative juices or showcase their skills.
This version of quartz is used for emotional healing and balance. Known as the stone of love and forgiveness, it resonates with the heart chakra. Rose quartz can help elevate emotional distress, bring calmness, and help soothes a broken heart. It also attracts love, promotes self-love, and strengthens connects in relationships (friends, family, and lovers).
Amethyst is also a member of the quartz family is known as the spiritual stone; it helps connect us to spiritual wisdom. Use amethyst to strengthen the 3rd-eye and Crown chakras, it helpful for meditation and spiritual work. Amethyst helps us to achieve balance and calmness in emotion and temper. This balance is what allows us to tap into our inner-self as well as strengthens intuition and connection to spirit. Amethyst means ” not intoxicated” and is the stone of sobriety. If you are prone to over doing things or struggle with addiction, charge a piece of amethyst with your intentions of staying sober or knowing your limit and carry it with you daily or wear it as jewelry.
