Hello, my dears!
I have been practicing embracing my spirituality more and more over the last several years. It started when I met a friend who had a strong connection to his own spirituality. There is an element of spirituality (metaphysical) which involves crystals, or at least it can. I personally, love crystals. Crystals are beautiful parts of the earth that can provide different healing properties to an individual provided they are able to connect with the crystal.
How Crystals Work
Crystals each have their own vibrational level and are known to be able to reduce or increase your own vibration until there is balance once again. It is also believed that they can help with physical ailments as well. There’s also a belief that crystals can communicate with those who meditate with them. The aim is to program your crystal with an intention and then use the crystal to work on an emotional, spiritual, or physical level. Fun fact: I owned a crystal that I gave to my friend and he was able to communicate what activities I had been doing while holding the crystal! He was a highly intuitive person but still!
A few of my favorite crystals are:
The love crystal. It provides aid in self-love, self-esteem, intimacy, communication. This is my all-time favorite crystal and to me, it has a very calming and soothing vibe as well.
Amethyst is great for grounding, as well as relieving stress and anxiety. It can help with thoughts and their clarity and spiritual protection.
Rhodonite is an all-around emotional wellness stone. It provides room for love, caring, and charity.
Sodalite is great for self-esteem, commitment, trust, and grounding.
Lapis Lazuli is a perfect stone to figure out what your dreams are trying to tell you. It provides wisdom and reason.
Taking Care of Your Crystals
As far as taking care of crystals goes, you cannot just pick up a crystal and it will bring the magical properties. Crystals adapt to the energy you provide them with, so you must keep them cleansed so they can work to their full potential. There are a few ways to cleanse crystals, you can do so by:
- Laying them in the moonlight
- Putting them back in the earth for a period of time
- Combine them with selenite or quartz
- Use sage or palo santo
