Crystals form an integral part of most people’s spiritual journey and experience. I wouldn’t mind betting you have a crystal near you right now, a clear or rose quartz, an amethyst, carnelian, citrine, turquoise…
There is something calming, pleasing and reassuring about the sight and feel of any crystal. Browse your local new age shop and you will be enchanted by the glistening, the shapes and the colours. What you may not understand is the energetic qualities they will be flooding you with at the same time. Empaths can either feel enlivened or overwhelmed in such a shop, such are the energies moving freely around. On a recent visit to the geology department of a museum, I had to stabilise myself several times because of the strong pull on my energetic field by the rocks and crystals on display.
This has been known for millenia with crystals being used for healing in ancient times right up to the present. They were used not just for their energetic properties but for physical healing too. Combine with oils and other natural ingredients and you have a powerful cocktail of healing at your fingertips. The problem we may find is that some of the crystals required for very specific healings are hard to find or cannot be ethically sourced.
