Healing crystals are natural stones that have various healing properties and energies. Recently, the method of using healing crystals as a form of healing has become more popular. But, not many people know a lot about the special properties of each crystal or that they’ve been used for healing all throughout history.
For many, healing crystals are a vessel that can connect your body, mind, and soul to the earth and regulate any positive intentions you set on your life. They are often used for chakra healing and work really well with zodiac signs. All of the properties and uses of healing crystals can be a little overwhelming for beginners, but luckily there’s plenty of resources that explain everything you need to know about crystals in detail.
There are too many types of healing crystals to count, but that’s okay because the crystal bible lists them for you, and better yet, it lists all of the properties of each crystal too! Knowing which crystal to pick to start out with can be tricky, so starting with several basics can set you in the right direction.
Whenever I introduce someone new to healing crystals, there are three popular ones I give them to help with all around healing.
1. Clear Quartz –Clear quartz crystals are the all-around, go-to crystals. Clear quartz can be used for almost anything! Clear quartz can be used for all chakras and any zodiac signs. Personally, I believe clear quartz crystals are the most cleansing of all the crystals. I often use them to help ease my mind throughout meditation. If you have no other crystals, clear quartz is the most important one to have.
2. Amethyst– Amethyst provides calmness, clarity, and protection. It can enhance intuition, and aide in addiction, and disease. Wear an amethyst stone around your neck if you need balance in your life, negative energies turned into positive ones, or protection. Placing amethyst near a plant can help it grow and prolong its life, and has the ability to calm an over-active animal.
3. Rainbow Moonstone– Rainbow moonstone is my all-time favorite stone. As a Cancer, rainbow moonstone is associated deeply with the phases of the moon and tides just like the zodiac. You can also wear rainbow moonstone around your neck to enhance psychic abilities and intuition. Leaving rainbow moonstone on your nightstand or under your pillow at night can enhance your dreams making them more vivid, and pleasant. This stone can also be used as a tool for lucid dreaming and helping you to remember your dreams. Charge rainbow moonstone by leaving it outside or on a windowsill during a full moon at night, which will bring about the energies of the stone to be used to their fullest potential.
