Home divine feminine Crystals Aren’t Just Pretty Rocks

Crystals are often referred to as “stone people” or “wisdom keepers,” because they hold thousands or even millions of years of the Earth’s history within them. Ancient civilizations have worked with the energy of the Earth since the beginning of time, finding guidance from that which lived under their feet.

Today, crystals are infused in beauty products, displayed in homes and businesses, and crafted into beautiful jewelry because of their healing energy. From dedicated yogis to those who have never meditated a day in their life, more and more people are using these wonderful gifts from the Earth.

Crystals have a long tradition of being used for healing. Each variety of crystal has a unique internal structure, which causes it to resonate at a certain frequency. It is this resonance that is said to give crystals their healing abilities. Applying this resonance in a coherent way can help to restore stability and balance to the bodies energy systems, stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

Crystal therapy is a gentle non-invasive form of alternative healing that works holistically to harmonize the mind, body, emotions and spirit, helping to increase our feeling of well-being, neutralize negativity, lift depression and to help us to become integrated, whole beings.

Like people, each crystal is unique and has a different story to tell. Each stone has its own vibrational blueprint, so take the time to shop around for different types before you decide which one is perfect for you. When first choosing a crystal, focus on its colour, shape, and size  rather than its healing properties. More often than not, the crystal you are drawn to visually possesses exactly the energy you need. If you’re able to shop in person rather than on the Internet, be sure to hold the crystal in your hands for a few moments so you can truly feel its energetic effect on you.
