The 7 Most Common Healing Crystals And How To Use Them
Crystals have been used for their amazing and energetic healing properties since ancient times. They can help us heal from repressed issues, bring us happiness, and help us live our healthiest lives. There are a number of different healing crystal varieties naturally found in the Earth. Each one has its own specific healing properties. Some are better used for protection and shielding, some for love and relationships, and some for luck and prosperity. I was first introduced to crystal healing during an online psychic reading and I have been using them since with great success. Below are the top 7 crystals that can help you live your best life.
Clear Quartz, also known as “The Master Healer”, has been used as a general stone for healing anything and everything. It is clear and translucent, and has the ability to heal emotional, physical and mental troubles. Because of its unique makeup, it’s able to resonate with our higher frequency chakras. It floods our bodies with divine white light and connects us to our higher consciousness, higher-self, and increases our ability to love purely. Clear Quartz is a great base crystal for everyone to have in their collection because of its various healing properties.
Citrine is one of the most esteemed crystals by healers. It is a golden, yellow color and is loved not only for its healing properties, but also for its beauty. Those who wish to have more abundance and prosperity in their lives are especially fond of it.
It also goes by the name of “The Merchant’s Stone” because of its ability to attract new opportunities and remove financial blockages from your life. It is highly respected for its weight loss and protection properties as well. Put it in your purse or carry a piece of it in your wallet for prosperity and abundance. For protecting your aura, place it at the four corners of your home. To help you with your weight loss goals, place it on your Solar Plexus Chakra, or Manipura, every day for about 20 minutes while visualizing your goals.
I love this stone so much that I have one set in every single room of my house! I also wear it on a necklace daily so that it is close to me and to protect my aura. It is considered one of the top protective crystals. It has the ability to shield against damaging electromagnetic fields by grounding you and created a shield against them.
Place Black Tourmaline next to any electronic devices for protection against EMF frequencies. It is also a great stone to place in your workplace for protection against negative vibrations and harmful intentions from others. If worn on your body, it will absorb negative energy and convert it to positive energy. If you find yourself having a hard time making your goals a reality, write down your goals and wishes on a piece of paper and set a Black Tourmaline crystal on top of it. The crystal will help remove any psychic blockages that are keeping your goals from coming true. It will replace the blockages with abundance and positive energy.
Amethyst, also referred to as “The All-Purpose Stone”, comes in several different shades and hues. It can be found in anything from a bright purple to a soft lilac shade. This crystal has the ability to resonate with our Crown Chakra and our Third Eye Chakra. The Third Eye Chakra opens the gateway to higher intuition and divine consciousness. Amethyst also delivers clarity to our minds when there is confusion, and relieves stress and anxiety from our bodies. A lot of healers use Amethyst to help treat mood swings and insomnia.
Rose Quartz is similar to Clear Quartz, but it is pink in color and is known for its calming and soothing properties. It symbolizes love and harmony, and opens your heart so that you can give and receive love freely. It is also used to help you move on from certain situations by allowing you to forgive yourself and others. Its energy emits peace, love and harmony.
This is one of the best crystals to use for healing your inner child, healing emotional traumas, and for relationship problems. Hold it or wear it on a piece of jewelry anytime you are feeling emotionally troubled. You will feel a calming wave of tranquility and peace wash over you. Place Rose Quartz anywhere you want to keep a peaceful atmosphere, such as your work desk and home.
Aventurine can come in several different colors, such as yellow, red, blue, green and more. This crystal is known for attracting true love and lasting relationships, as well as true friendships. Green Aventurine is known as the “Luck Stone” because it brings forward new opportunities and good luck. It is also able to raise your self-esteem and confidence, which in turn helps your personal growth. Aventurine also helps alleviate sleep disorders, allergies, helps regulate your blood pressure, and strengthens your immunity.
This crystal can be anything from a deep, reddish brown to a pale, light orange. This stone is known for manifesting motivation, confidence, and inspiration. It also has the ability to give you the determination you need to stay strong no matter what problems come your way. It is also known for being an energy booster that removes impure energies and spreads joy in its place. Carnelian represents the Sacral Chakra, Svadhisthana, so it can help harness creativity, sensuality, and help with addiction problems.
