The healing power of crystals is something that I have always been fascinated by but never really tried it myself. My interest spiked recently with the opening of a new shop in our town.
In the centre of the store, they have a large table filled with lots of colourful crystals. I could just sit and stare at it all day. I’ve always been a sucker for sparkly things. Next, to the crystals, they have little cards which briefly explain the health benefits of each stone.
It got me thinking about whether crystal healing is something I should start incorporating into my own life. I bought a rose quartz stone which is apparently good for anxiety. I keep it in my coat pocket and hold it in my hand when I’m out and about.
What I have found is that it helps me to focus back on the moment rather than letting my anxiety take over so I guess it’s working for me.
I am by no means a *crystal expert. I cannot guarantee you that the crystals I have listed below will help you.
However, I do believe that if people are open to embracing new things great things can happen. Whether crystal healing is merely a placebo effect or not I don’t know but surely if it helps a person that has to be a good thing right? Regardless of the science behind it.
