Understanding the Power of Healing Crystals

Crystals! Let’s talk about ‘em...

I’m obsessed, what else can I say? They are such beautiful creations; the colors, shapes, and energy they bring. When I walk into a store that sells crystals, I love that I’m energetically drawn to certain stones. For me, the real connection occurs when I’m able to learn the meaning behind a particular stone, and something just clicks. It will immediately resonate with me and I can’t help but keep it close as I meditate, or simply admire its natural beauty. 

Crystals as just so magical. As a person who suffers from migraine headaches, I love that I can grab my moonstone, place it on my neck where the pain is, and meditate that pain away. From the books that I’ve read and the talks I have watched, I’ve learned that we have to power to do so much more to heal ourselves, and doubly so when I use the crystal as a focus for that healing energy. 

Because of my affinity for them, I want to share with you the different stones and their energetic connections. They’ve become an increasingly important part of my wellness routine, and just like a beauty-food recipe, I can’t wait to share this knowledge with the world! I’ve borrowed the text below from a lovely Healthline article you can read here. This piece really does an excellent job of breaking down many of the common crystals, their uses, and practical applications in your life.

Enjoy! 

Healing Crystals 101

Clear quartz

This white crystal is considered a “master healer.” It’s said to amplify energy by absorbing, storing, releasing, and regulating it. It’s also said to aid concentration and memory.

It isn’t all about other people, though. Rose quartz is said to also encourage love, respect, trust, and worth within one’s self — something we could all use in this day and age.

Jasper
This smooth crystal is known as the “supreme nurturer.” It’s said to empower the spirit and support you through times of stress by preparing you to fully “show up.” It’s claimed to protect you from and absorb negative vibes while promoting courage, quick thinking, and confidence. These are traits that are extra helpful when tackling important issues — which is exactly what this stone may be good for.

It’s also said to help get rid of emotional blockage and promote qualities of strength, clarity, and compassion to help find your true sense of self. For your physical body, it may aid in digestion and detoxification while potentially helping reduce pain and cramps.

Citrine
Bring joy, wonder, and enthusiasm to every part of your life with citrine.

Are You Feeling Nourished?

June 16, 2020

As a woman who has dedicated her life and lifestyle to organics, I’m always thinking about how I’m nourishing my body. Normally, my mind immediately goes to meals - what I’m physically fueling my body with. But today I want to talk a little bit about we can all better nourish our soul. It may sound trite or obvious, but conscious consumption is an essential part of living a more balanced and inspired life.

But consumption comes in many forms: media, emotional energy, mealtime, the gym, etc. Being aware of how these different areas can affect our lives is essential in creating healthier habits...
