The magic of crystals...

Updated: Apr 17, 2020

We're starting to see crystals all over social media. Have you ever wondered what are these little gems and why is there such a hype around them?....

Crystals are minerals composed of molecules and atoms formed underground. Crystals come in various shapes, sizes, stunning arrays of colours, and each of them with their own characteristics. So, what makes them so special? Crystals have been used by medicine people and spiritualists around the world for thousands of years. They have been used in Chinese traditional medicine dating back over 5,000 years, Ayurvedic texts from India, and the Bible, which has hundreds of references to crystals and their healing powers. All crystals have their own unique energies and properties which can affect our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of ourselves. Pretty cool right! So, how does it all work? It is suggested that, crystals work through the human energy system also known as chakras, auras, and bio-field. The crystals influence on the energy system is what claims to have healing effects on the mind, body, and spirit. I will discuss chakras and energy healing in more detail in further posts, so keep a look out!

So, soul tribe.. where do you start and how can you incorporate crystals into your life. I often get comments when clients enter my work space that they feel calm and relaxed. I have always believed this came from the crystals I keep not only in my home but working environment, sometimes I carry them in my pockets, bags, working tools e.g. make up brush belt etc.. you name it. Where ever I can sneak one of these little stones of magic, rest assured there’s always one near me. One of my favourite ways to use crystals is drinking crystal elixir. Sounds pretty magical but it really is as simple as putting your chosen crystals into your water bottle. With the rise in awareness of crystals there are many companies that have designed crystal elixir bottles. I will tag one of my favourites below. Crystals can be used in meditation by placing them over various parts of the body, particularly, areas where you may be experiencing physical or emotional issues. You can take them along with you to yoga classes, sleep with them under your pillow, pretty much anywhere your imagination takes you.

Now you maybe be wondering how to choose the right crystals for you. One of the most common ways is to allow yourself to be intuitively drawn to a crystal. This is great when first starting out. As your collection grows you may decide to research the right crystal based on your current life situation. For example, you may purchase a crystal to assist you with a job interview, exam, new beginning, or simply one to provide some peace in a stressful period. Here are some of my favourite crystals which have supported me through various situations over the years.
