Healing crystals for the heart and soul
If you’ve been searching for ways to be more mindful, to calm anxiety, soothe stress, or even promote a restful night’s sleep, then crystal healing could become part of your self-care ritual.
Crystals are renowned for their healing powers and can be used to promote positive energy flow, balance the emotions, and can even be used in meditation. In this blog, we’re taking a look at the healing power of crystals and their many uses.
Quartz is the ‘master healer’ of the crystals, known for its ability to absorb, store, and regulate the release of energy. This makes it the perfect stone to restore a sense of balance and harmony to yourself and the world around you. Whatever you pour into this crystal, you’ll get back in spades! Quartz works in unison with your mind, body, and soul to help put you back on an even keel.
Amethyst, a beautiful purple stone is well-known for healing and spirituality. It’s a soothing stone with a calming and serene energy which makes it the perfect stone to help you catch those much-needed zzzzz’s. If you struggle to sleep, keep it on your bedside table or under your pillow to reap the benefits.
Amethyst is also linked to the crown chakra, our connection to spirituality. If you’d like to find out more about the chakras, read our Guide to the Chakras blog here. This is also a particularly strong stone to use during meditation.
The ultimate heart healer, Rose Quartz is a gentle but powerful stone that can bring harmony to yourself and your relationships, deepen connections, and bring a wealth of positive energy. It might come as no surprise that this crystal is linked to the Heart chakra.
How to use crystals for healing
Your crystals can be worn on the skin as jewellery, placed around the house depending on where you need them, or even carried around with you in your handbag or on your desk at work.
Start by setting an intention. To do this, hold your chosen crystal in your hand, clear your mind of any distractions, and start to visualise a white light going through the crystal. If you’re holding a Rose Quartz, and your intention is to start to treat yourself with more compassion and kindness, then you’ll need to think this thought until you feel the message has gotten through.
Over time, your crystals may become less effective as they absorb different energies. To cleanse them, pop them in a salt bath which will melt away any negative energies. You can also leave your crystals in the sun to recharge, but don’t forget to reset your intention on the crystal afterwards.
