What are Healing Crystals?

Healing crystals are natural stones that are believed to have healing properties. They work by aligning the energy fields within our bodies to promote balance and harmony. 

Crystals are formed deep within the earth and are millions of years old. As they form, they absorb and hold onto the energy of their surroundings, creating a unique energy signature.

Crystals come in many different colors, shapes, and sizes, and each one has its own unique properties and healing abilities. Some of the most popular crystals include amethyst, rose quartz, clear quartz, citrine, black tourmaline and moonstone. 

Crystals can be used in a variety of ways to promote healing. Some people wear them as jewelry, while others place them on their bodies during meditation or put them under their pillows at night. You can also place your crystals in a room or on a desk to promote positive energy flow.

While healing crystals aren’t a substitute for medical treatment, they can still be used as a type of complementary therapy. Crystals can help to promote overall well-being and balance, but they should be used in conjunction with other forms of healing.

These powerful crystals can also be used for scrying, also known as crystal reading. These sessions are especially helpful if you’re looking to get a glimpse into the spirit world and ask for guidance or signs, or if you’d like to know more about your past, present, and future.
