Since ancient times, crystals have been used for their powerful energetic healing properties. Crystals can help heal deep-seated issues, bringing forth good health and greater happiness. Each crystal has its own unique healing properties — some are best suited for abundance and prosperity, while others are better for love, relationships and harmony, or even protection and shielding. Sounds like bullsh*t right?
Bear with me. I can already see the eyes rolling at the thought that a bunch of rocks can improve your life. I was the same, but a good friend of mine has been keeping a few crystals inside her bra for the last few months and hasn’t had anxiety since. Sure, it could be psychological but it’s worth a try right?
I’ve only just started using crystals in my life so the jury is still out but I will try anything that could help me be more chilled. Lets face it, they look pretty and are easy to get. The smaller ones are only a few pounds and you can keep them in a little pouch in your handbag. If there is one you are particularly drawn too then you can buy a larger one to have in your home which looks really cool. They also make gorgeous jewellery – I have all my chakra crystals in a bracelet and my sister wears a beautiful clear quartz pendent round her neck, close to her heart so the choice is yours.
