I have been fortunate enough to grow up being exposed to these mystical elements from the earth and have always been fascinated by them. The more I incorporate them into my yoga and meditation practices the more I believe in the energy they produce. One of my favorite videos is of the crystal kid who creates a crystal GRID based of "where the crystals tell him to place them" and to charge up the crystals. It's #GOALS.
Everyone thought Spencer Pratt was certifiable when he was talking about crystal energies and his crystal babes, look who's laughing now as one of his streams of income are Spencer Pratt's crystal starter packs and he slings them like hot cakes to help fund his crystal obsession, which you would know if you follow him on snapchat (pratt.spencer) highly recommend.
The power of crystal energies has been recognized since the human race began. The ancient people used rocks and talismans for amulets and power pieces. With the internet crystals and their healing properties have become more mainstream and the information more accessible. Crystals are a great way to balance energy in a home or keep on your person for helping with your unique journey. I believe everyone can benefit from crystals and the best way to find out is to go to a stone store and see what crystal you are drawn to, odds are when you read the description of the crystals powers it will resonate with you and what you are going through at that moment in time.
Crystals can be healing, calming, energizing, cleansing, anxiety ridding, heart opening... just about any ailment of problem you have can be assisted by the energy of a crystal. But you have to keep them happy, don't let them gather dust on a shelf, interact with them, move them around, clean them under the light of the full moon or with a selenite wand. Some people keep them in their purse or their bra or you will notice Gigi and I have them wrapped and wear them around our necks and close to our hearts. I feel that I thrive with my crystals and reap the benefits and attract the energy the crystal is known for when it is near me.
Their energy is no joke. Researchers have confirmed energy fields around them. A quartz tower photographed using Kirlian photo plates wrapped in tesla coil shows the electromagnetic field of the crystal.
Crystals are alive and have an energetic vibration that interacts with our energy fields or auras. Below are a few crystal spotlights and a peek into how my Mom balances the energy of our home with crystals.
One of the most CLEANSING crystals this beautiful wand can help block all of the waves we are exposed to. You can also use it to clean your other crystals. It has a powerful cleansing energy and I keep mine right by all of my devices to help block those bad waves and all the -Fis.
I was drawn to this wonderful crystal's energy during a Kundalini practice by Ritual Radiance. She included information about all of the crystals she was giving out and my new baby Amazonite read, "Called the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth, Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one's own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgement or confrontation with others to live in alignment with those beliefs and values. It provides the freedom to express one's thoughts and feelings and to set strong and clear boundaries, both internally as self discipline and externally on what one is willing to experience or in defining personal space. As a metaphysical healer, Amazonite soothes the chakras and aligns the physical body and etheric. It is particularly rejuvenating to the Heart and Throat Chakras enhancing loving communication on all levels. It balances one's masculine/feminine energies as well as many aspects of the personality. It awakens compassion for others by allowing one to perceive both sides of a problem and accepting differing points of view."
HEART. OPENING. CENTRAL. If anything has happened to you that would cause you to lock your heart up and throw away the key this pink beauty will help open your heart back up to let love in. I have countless stories of rose quartz appearing in people's lives who need it most and shortly after they find happy, healthy meaningful relationships. This is a great crystal to keep in the kitchen to really remind you and drive home the "made with love" intentions. Also is a great addition to the bedroom and provides unconditional love energy and healing.
This is my ride or dieeeeeee. A solar plexus chakra gemstoneI always keep it close by. REAL citrine not the heated amethyst stuff. That real real. Citrine connects you to your self improving thought clarity, learning, confidence and self esteem. It can help with mental faitgue and memory. It can help you find your true calling or path in life by re-establishing the link between the conscious and subconscious minds. "Known to uplift one's spirit". Abundance seems to follow citrine around as well. The most powerful stone for manifestation! Make sure you get the real citrine as the heated amethyst has different properties than real citrine.
I am trying to get my hands on some celestite now that my cortisol levels are confirmed to not be in the normal range for someone my age. More on that later, but I would recommend if you are buying any crystals online ENERGY MUSE (besides Spencer Pratt's rocks of course!) is a great resource and gives you lots of information surrounding the crystals and how to use them. It describes celestite, "For anyone feeling anxious or overcome with stress, Celestite is your saving grace. Coming from the Latin word for heavenly, the way Celestite crystals prevent you from burning out with anxiety and doubt certainly feels like divine intervention. It connects to the highest realms of consciousness to channel serenity within your third eye, crown and heart chakras. For anyone who has trouble getting to sleep, or sleeping through the night without waking up - especially babies or children - will benefit from celestite’s calming energies, which promotes restful sleep." This would be great in any kid's room or adult bedroom. I need some on my person stat!
Another great crystal for the bedside is Unakite. It also relieves stress and can resolve past issues. It balances emotions and spiritual aspects and is very grounding since it is associated with the root chakra it can provide better sleep.
Here's a high vibe crystal considered the stone of fire. It carries a lot of heat and can ignite passion of any kind (sex, action, emotion, ideas, concepts, creativity). It can break up stagnant energy and kickstart your path back to your passions and spiritual development.
This beauty reminds me of the virgin Mary, mother of all crystals. This crystal promotes balance and peace, calm mindful meditation and likes to be in the shade. It can provide emotional stability and inner strength. It can also open pathways for meditation and lucid dreaming. The crystal kid beamed all of his crystal grid to charge up the amethyst and with a beam of energy coming down that it could then shine onto all of the other crystals. I would recommend placing the calming energy of amethyst in a bedroom, but I can provide a calm atmosphere anywhere.
Do you believe in the power of crystals or have any stories of crystal energy? These are just a few of the countless stones out there that are vibrating their powers. I have many more to shine the light on including a full chakra breakdown talking about all of the chakras and corresponding crystals that help balance each chakra. Stay tuned and please share your favorite crystal baby.
