Anyone close to me knows – I LOVE my crystals. I use them everyday for everything. I wear them, I work with them, I sleep with them, I charge my water with them – they are my lifelong healing companions. But when I first got curious about crystals, I had no idea where to start! I had so many questions…like:
How exactly do they create an impact on us? Mama Earth forms these little treasures over millions of years, under high pressures and temperatures. When they emerge, they refract and reflect light (vibration) that we are unable to perceive. There’s a lot going on around us that we aren’t even aware of…check it out:
This affects our auric field, even without physical contact. Sound crazy? Don’t be so sure. From solar energy, to the technology behind computers and LCD screens, check out how crystalline properties are used in your everyday technology HERE.
Science lesson over – time to dive in to the sparkles! It was so hard to pick just five…but here we go!
Clear Quartz is piezoelectric and pyroelectric – meaning it can turn mechanical pressure or heat into electromagnetic energy and vice versa (enabling their use in electronics). The ability to focus, amplify, store and transform energy makes it the most versatile crystal on the market. Clear Quartz produces a force field of healing negative ions while dispelling static electricity and harmful effects
of radiation and radioactivity. It will also amplify the intention of any crystal grid and amplify the energies of any stone it is directed towards.
2. Rose Quartz
Ahhh Rose Quartz – my secret guardian. Believe it or not – I found this piece at a garage sale when I was about 6 for TWO DOLLARS (thanks, Mom 💙). Rose quartz opens the heart chakra, lowers stress and tension, and promotes healing from anger, jealousy, resentment and other emotional pain. A staple of supportive, loving, and comforting energy.
My third recommendation is AMETHYST! This is a beautiful piece that I received as a gift from my best friend. Known as the “all healer”, this stone is the equivalent of a big hug. A great stone to
destress and relax. Keep it by your bedside to improve sleep and experience good dreams.
I’ve got my green fluorite pictured, but it comes in several colors – and odds are, it was used to make some of the products in your home (cooking utensils, enamels, certain types
of glass…cool stuff!) This stone is my go to for overcoming obstacles. It’s energies peak your mental state by actually stimulating the electrical charge in your brain cells. It’s got a spiritual side too, it works to help expand consciousness
5. My final pick is: whatever stone you are attracted to. Intuition rules all baby, you know what you need more than anyone else. Let me know what you pick!
