Before you get all, “Really? Crystals? Ok. This is too weird.” Keep reading.
Rocks, Crystals, Gemstones, whatever you call them, come from this beautiful planet earth we’ve been graced to live on. And, you already know that great things come the earth, like, food for example. So, consider that crystals, that come from the earth, also have got some good stuff going on and they can probably help you out.
If you’re the type of person who can’t get enough of crystals and have a ton of them all over the place, then you’re probably already picking up what I’m putting down.
Crystals can do a lot. We’re talking a range of raising your vibration from stressed and crusty to chilled out and happy, to helping heal straight up physical issues like poor circulation and blood flow. Now, I’m not saying you can skip your visit to the doctor after picking up a nice piece of hematite. What I am saying is that these little guys can be a great thing to use in conjunction with modern western medicine. Just a few examples are:
Amethyst: relieves stress, eases headaches and is incredible for insomnia. In fact, you can put this bad boy by or under your mattress/pillow and you will sleep like a baby. Speaking of, it’s also great for helping keep children calm and get them into the sleep zone easier. It’s as simple as having a piece in any bedroom.
Carnelian: pictured above, is great for fertility issues and can help ease lower back pain and arthritis. Hi. Amazing. Wearing it is probably most effective but carrying a little one in your pocket can also work great.
Smoky Quartz: Love love love this one. First off, it’s great for absorbing negative energy and dispersing it. Hello. It’s also great for ailments of the abdomen, hips and legs. And it’s generally just super grounding and makes you feel solid and rooted. Who doesn’t want that.
That’s just a couple of examples. There are so many crystals out there and so much information on how to use them it’s insane. I like the Crystal Bible, parts 1, 2 and 3. Lots of info and pictures to go with so you can do your research and see what works for you. Typically, whatever you are most attracted to is exactly what you need, (funny how that works) so trust you intuition when picking any stones. It will not steer you wrong!
The best thing about using stones is that they’re typically pretty easy to get and cheap! Carry them with you, meditate with them, leave them by your bed. It’s all good. So get out there, do some research, play and be open to the possibility of something new!
