What is Crystal Healing?
Crystal healing involves using crystals on or around the body to draw out negative energy which can cause disease. At the same time, positive energy flows into the body to help it heal naturally.
Crystals have been fascinating people since ancient times. These precious stones embody spirituality, healing, energy, and even for some, magic as they allow you to tap into your own intuition, empowering you to be an active partner in your health and wellbeing.
Several philosophies, such as the Chinese concept of chi (or Qi) and the Hindu concept of chakras, incorporate crystal use for healing and nourishment.

How Do I Use Healing Crystals?
Now that you have set foot on your crystal healing path it is time to learn how to care and use your crystals so you can optimize their wonderful healing benefits.
Cleanse Your Crystals
First, you need to cleanse your crystals to get rid of any negative energy. There are many ways to cleanse your crystals depending on type and color. Make sure to find out first which ones are suitable for your crystal.
For instance, for hard stones such as quartz and amethyst, you may use salt water, whilst for tumbled stones like tiger’s eye and turquoise, natural light would be good.
On the other hand, other stones may be cleansed using breath, water, or sound. Some can even be purified using fire, smudging, or full moonlight.
Set Your Intentions
Next, identify and focus on something you want your crystal to help you with. You may want to keep it in mind or even write it on a piece of paper. Do what feels right for you.
Wear Your Crystals
When you touch your crystals, you tap into their energy. One of the best ways is to wear them jewelry or add them to your favorite outfit.
Put Them in Your Pocket
If you don’t feel like putting your chakra stones on display then you can just place them in your pocket and touch them as needed.
Have Them Near When You Meditate
To harness your crystals’ healing powers, you could also place the crystals beside you during meditation as they can help you tap into your own intuition.
You can hold the crystals in your hand, place them on your chakras, or set up a crystal energy field.
As you can see, crystal healing is a powerful way to use what’s naturally available to help heal ourselves—physically, emotionally, and spiritually. They can heighten your positive vibrations and stave off unwanted energy. Visit our shop and get your own healing crystals.
