A beginner’s guide to crystals and their healing powers

Crystals have been used for thousands of years for healing and maintaining well-being. They release energy channels within the home and in our bodies. The human body is made up of silicon dioxide which is the same compound found in quartz crystals. Therefore, we are able to pick up the signals that they emit and the resulting vibrations release energy in our bodies.

Choosing the right crystals for you

Different crystals have different properties. According to spiritual teaching expert Krista Mitchell, more people are looking for ways of replenishing energy sapped by modern life.
Turquoise is useful for healing after an injury or an illness and for helping you think through problems clearly. Citrine is useful if you are suffering from ‘brain fog’ or find yourself forgetting things. In the long term, it can help to prevent cognitive decline associated with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. Keep some opal crystals nearby if you are working on a creative project, especially if you are female.

Most people start by getting some quartz crystals. They can help to maintain your physical and mental health. They will absorb all the negative energy in the home and lift everyone’s moods.

Using crystals around the home

There are other ways to use crystals around your home. Amethyst, quartz, and selenite can be placed under your pillow at night. They help with insomnia and anxiety.

Crystals such as amethyst, citrine and fluorite all have purifying properties. All you have to do is place them in a glass of fresh water for 30 minutes, then remove them and drink it. The crystals will remove impurities from the water. This boosts your immune system and protects you from disease.

Placing quartz crystals all around the bedroom can help with relationship issues.
