I have a lot of tools in my self care kit, but this one ROCKS.
It might just be one of the prettiest healing tools ever.
It's my collection of crystals.
Crystals aren't just beautiful to look at. Crystals are millions of years old and hold some serious energetic magic.
These precious rocks respond to, absorb and emit energy. The energy frequency of these stones interacts with the electromagnetic energy of our bodies and our emotions to bring about energetic changes. That's why I love to hold them and use them to amplify the energy during acupuncture.
You can use the power of crystals in your everyday life by simply having them around you. You can wear them in jewelry, pendants or hold them while meditating, daydreaming or praying. You could place them over an acupuncture point or chakra. You could slip one in your pocket, keep one on your desk, rub them like a worry stone, use them as a paperweight or sleep with them on your nightstand or under your pillow.
Here's just one of my favorite ways to use crystals:
I lie down and place my favorite crystal (which right now happens to be rose quartz) on the acupuncture point, Sea of Tranquility, and breathe for a few minutes. Doing this always magically helps me to feel my heart soften and my spirit calm.
Sometimes, I simply slip a crystal, such as amethyst or quartz, under my pillow at night.
Each crystal completely unique. Do you have a favorite crystal or gemstone that you find healing?
Mount Shasta is considered a vortex and it's quite the place for crystals - I'd love to know which ones you'd like to know more about;)
