What is crystal healing and how can crystals help?
There are hundreds of different crystals which all have unique properties that can be used for different things.
You can go to a crystal healer or use them yourself at home.
Crystals are natural and safe to use for mind, body and soul.
Crystals are formed underground and it takes millions of years. There are lots of different types of crystals, depending the conditions they grow and which minerals they’re made from. These differences change the effect of the crystals energies. So different crystals emit different healing energies.
Crystal healing is an energy based holistic system. They help unblock , balance and direct energy where it is needed most for healing.
You need to choose the crystals you are instinctively drawn to, use your intuition when choosing the right ones for you.
Cleansing and setting intentions
Before using your crystals you need to cleanse them because they absorb negative energies ( always remember to cleanse before and after you use them). Then you need to set the intentions that you would like them to help you with.
Cleansing • Wash them in salt water • Burry them underground over night • Leaving them outside over night under a full moon • Pass them through sage or smudging stick
Setting your intentions • Once your crystals are cleansed, they are ready to use. Take a few moments to sit quietly holding them and thinking how you’d like them to help or support you.
Ways to use crystals
• Go to a professional crystal healer • Wear crystal jewellery, such as bracelets or necklaces • Hold a gemstone in your hand during meditation • Pop one under your pillow at night while you sleep • Place crystals on your night stand by your bed or anywhere in your room, that feels right for you • Put crystals on your chackra areas while you lay and relax ( you can use the crystals that correspond to each chackra ) • Pop the crystals you like in your pocket or bag when you are going out.
