Crystals can fill your life with beauty and magic. Most people just like to buy them to display their beauty without actually knowing what they can do for them. Crystals have many benefits to the user and it doesn’t take much to start getting into them. You don’t need to spend loads of money or have any special training, all you need is an open mind.

Crystal healing is when you use the healing powers of crystals to balance one’s body, mind, and energy. There are many different types of crystals and each has different healing abilities and benefits. Many are thought to promote the flow of good energy throughout the body and help get rid of any negative energy that will then help with physical or emotional pain. The most important part of working with crystals is that you need an open mind and leave the skepticism at the door, because if you are not sure if they will work, then they won’t. It’s all about your mindset. 

Everything on earth has vibrations and energies and these rocks help connect us to energies that we want in our lives that will benefit us. Setting your intention while working with them is the key to harnessing their positive energy. You can work with these crystals by carrying them in your pocket, putting them in your home, meditating with them, or just wearing them as a piece of jewelry. 

The best way to figure out what crystal you should get is by

identifying what challenges you are facing and what you need help with. Each crystal has its own unique benefits and so once you establish what you are looking for then it will be easier for you to choose the right one for you. Say if you are dealing with anxiety, then getting amethyst would be the best choice for you or if you are having love related issues, then rose quartz would be the crystal for you.

We also can use our chakras to help work with crystals. Chakras are different focal energy points on our bodies and are thought to be like spinning discs of energy that correspond with certain nerve bundles and major organs. It is important for your chakras to be balanced because if they become unbalanced that’s when you could run into some issues. There are 7 chakras in total, and each represents a part of the body and has a color that corresponds to it. There is the crown chakra(purple), Third eye(dark blue), Throat(light blue), Heart(green), Solar Plexus(yellow), Sacral(orange) and your root(red). You can actually use crystals to help balance your chakras. You can do this by placing different crystals with the correlating color on your different chakras to help open them up. This is helpful because the energies of the crystals will work with your chakras in a positive way. 

Crystals have many amazing benefits and with the right mindset and curiosity, you can really explore the energies and benefits that go with these amazing rocks. I recommend that everyone should start their journey with crystals to really help you grow.
