The Crystal Craze

The Crystal Craze

Why should we use crystals as a part of a holistic approach to wellbeing?

Crystals have been used for their powerful healing properties for thousands of years. Ancient cultures all over the world used healing crystals and stones to align, clear and transform their energy, spirit and physical health. The metaphysical powers of crystals were no mystery to most ancient cultures including the Egyptians, Mayans and Sumerians who regularly adorned their bodies, jewellery and buildings with these sacred stones.

At an atomic level, our universe is in a constant state of vibration. Crystals emit high frequency vibrations and are extremely good at holding a stable vibration due to their crystalline lattice structure. We, on the other hand, are a very complex mix of vibrations that can easily be disturbed and become unbalanced, which makes us feel sick and unwell. All kinds of things can affect our vibrations, from external influences such as electromagnetic and geopathic stress, to internal ones such as a constant negative thought pattern or suppressing emotions. If for nothing other than their tactile benefits, rolling these shapes around in our hands releases our minds from the more mundane and automatic reactions we have to almost every object we pick up these days (I.e. instantly unlocking your phone when you pick it up).

What are the most common misconceptions about crystals?

Crystals have for so long been boxed in as ‘hippie’ and the jargon surrounding it has made them difficult to understand and ultimately undervalued by the mainstream. Crystals are starting to make a comeback and are slowly finding their way back to the people.

How to choose the right crystal?

After reading about each crystal (research google, read books and blogs, etc.), pick one which has a message that resonates with you and your journey and perhaps what you are looking for to focus on in the near future. Many people say crystals choose us and you may often feel drawn to a particular crystal, maybe the colour or a glint in the stone will draw you in and make you feel a connection with the natural object. In saying this, if you are still very unsure and want to get your collection going, the Clear Quartz is one of the best first crystals to begin with. It is a master healer and generator, which means it also helps to charge other stones. Another cool fact: clear quartz is one of the only crystals that refract light and bounce rainbows off the walls!

How to take care of crystals?

To ensure our crystals are working at their best it is important to follow a 3 step-process when caring for our crystals. CLEANSE, CHARGE and ACTIVATE. Clean crystals in salt water or pass them through incense to eliminate negative energy. Charge your crystal under the sun or moonlight to re-energise; the Full Moon for an extra kick! Activate your crystal by setting an intention to your stone. Remember, what we think or believe about ourselves and the world becomes our reality.

What type of healing can we expect from crystals?

You can use crystals to heal everything from migraines to anxiety and beyond. Healing crystals can also accelerate your meditation practices, align your 7 chakras and even induce trance states under the right conditions. There’s no limit to the types or level of healing you can get from the right crystal or stone in the right application.
