Amethyst. Rose Quartz. Selenite.
These are just a few of my favorite crystals. My collection is actually really big now too many to count, but my love for crystals wasn’t something that came quickly. I can remember the first time I even learned about them. I took a geology class back in college — just an elective course that I needed to graduate — and I hated it. I memorized all of the elements about minerals and rocks, graduated, and didn’t think about crystals again until 10 years later.
In 2014, during my spiritual awakening, I realized exactly why the universe put me in the geology class I thought was such a waste of my time! Now, I can’t get enough of these amazing things that are full of energy and hold an abundant amount of healing power.
Crystals can be used in so many different ways: to lift your energy levels, to ground you, to heal you, and even to protect you. There is literally one or more for anything you may need.
For example, Rose Quartz is used to open the heart chakra, but it also has healing properties. It helps to heal chest and lung problems. Selenite promotes flexibility and can help with your spinal cord. Another favorite is Malachite, which helps with menstrual cramps in women, along with helping the reproduction system.
In order for a crystal to work to its full potential, the crystal needs to be charged. And just like there are many crystals, there are many ways to charge them.
You can bury it in dirt and come back and get it later
You can run them under water if they are tumbled and not in the raw form
You can charge them in the sun light
You can sage/ smudge them
They can be charged in the moonlight (my favorite). And are even more potent charged under Full Moon light
During the Full Moon, you simply sit them outside or in your windowsill and let them suck up the moon light. Afterwards, the crystals are fully charged, and you can actually feel the energy radiating through them! I mean, isn’t that amazing?
So, if you are just building your crystal collection, know there are many benefits to crystals and how to use them. Just make sure to keep those babies charged!
