Crystals are believed to have beneficial health properties and can promote physical and emotional healing. Learn how you can further enhance your wellbeing with these little gems.
Scientifically, crystals have a structure that respond to the inputs of all different surrounding energies, and by placing it close to the body or by simply holding it, they can oscillate and emit specific vibratory frequencies that interact with our body’s energy field. (Heaven has one kept under a spoon in her kitchen for good vibes.)
Different crystals have different purposes – some are designed to restore harmony, some help alleviate stress, some help with concentration and clarity, and the list goes on. Sometimes we might not know what we need, but crystals have their way of finding you. And that can be manifested in a form of the stone omitting heat or sending tingles to your hands. Below are some of Heaven’s favourites:
Rose: Universal love
Rose quartz is the healing stone of unconditional love. It's thought to open up the heart chakra and encourage us to forgive others and ourselves. Use this chakra stone with the intention to nurture and support you on your journey to find self-love, and see what happens.
This crystal can help you to overcome feelings of self-doubt and feel more optimistic since, like rose quartz, it's thought to open the energy of the heart. The next time you're feeling anger and frustration bubble up in your chest, take a few deep breaths with this in your hand to calm down.
It signifies magic, mystery, royalty, and good judgment. They define a feeling of calm or a feeling of energy. The energies of Purple Crystals have the ability to get rid of obstacles and restore the balance into your life. Find a quiet place to sit uninterrupted with the stone in your hands and see if any new insights come through.
Clear: Master Healer
The clear quartz crystal is one of the most popular stones around. Ancient civilizations have long used it to balance the body and clear the mind, and its clear colour means that it can be helpful in a variety of scenarios and situations. For that reason, this is a great stone to start with if you're a total beginner to the world of crystal healing. Physically, clear crystals are claimed to help stimulate the immune system and balance out your entire body.
Turquoise is also known as the master healer, believed to be an energetic bridge between heaven and earth. Since ancient times, the stunning blue stone has been highly regarded for its protective and lucky properties. Turquoise is also a stone of communication, so it might be able to help you speak up if you're having trouble putting words to your feelings or perspective.
This is a great stone for creative people. It can be used to remove blocks that leave us feeling burnt out, uninspired, and stuck. Simply looking at its vibrant orange colour stimulates passion, motivation, confidence, and joy.
Yellow: Willpower & Optimism
This is a crystal of light, happiness, and presence. Holding one serves as a friendly reminder to be mindful and appreciate the world as it is right now. This stone also encourages us to dream big, maintain a positive state of mind, and walk through life with gratitude.
