Crystals are becoming more and more popular these days for all types of different uses (jewelry, chakra healing, meditation, or home decor). If you are not that familiar with crystals, you may be wondering how exactly they’re supposed to work. Well, different crystals are believed to hold different healing properties, affect a person’s energy fields, and are even able to absorb, change, move, redirect, rid you of, or attract different energies in and around your body.
SPIRITUALITY AND SOBRIETY
As one of the most popular crystals in the world, amethyst is a violet variety of quartz and a natural tranquilizer, meaning it alleviates stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, and dismisses anger, rage, fear, and anxiety. It can also help lessen grief and sadness, assist with weight loss, provide stress relief, reduce headaches, dissolve negativity, plus many more benefits.
MONEY AND ENERGY
The crystal’s color varies from a light lemony yellow all the way to an earthy brown with some very nice oranges in between. It cleanses the chakras and opens intuition. Citrine attracts prosperity, wealth, and success. It also raises self-esteem and self-confidence. Citrine promotes motivation, physical activity, and encourages self-expression and creativity. This crystal also enhances concentration and revitalizes the mind, releases negative traits, expels depression, fears and phobias; and creates emotional balance.
KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM
For deep self-knowledge, look into this blue crystal (blues will vary from light blue to a deep blue with gold flakes), which aids in discerning inner truth, activating psychic abilities and intuition, exploring past lives, and helping to discover your truest inner-self. Lapis Lazuli can also help if you suffer from insomnia and is known to bring wisdom to those who use it.
LOVE AND ROMANCE
This pink crystal is known as the universal stone of love as it attracts romance and opens the heart to love. Some benefits to this crystal are feeling a strong sense of self-worth, promoting fertility and deep emotional healing, improving circulation, and even lowering blood pressure.
