A Beginner's Guide To Healing Crystals

Whether or not you believe in the science of healing crystals, they are great items to leave in your room to clear all negative energy and provide an amazing aesthetic. Even if you’re just buying crystals because of their appearance, knowing what each crystal means and what they can do for you may allow you to make better choices in the crystals you buy, and raise interest in the entire idea of crystal healing. Written by someone who uses healing crystals regularly and has done an abundance of research and readings about them, here is a one-stop guide on how and why to use healing crystals!

Here is what I will be discussing in this article:

- What are healing crystals?

- What are the chakras?

- What do specific crystals do?

- How do I know which ones I need?

- Where can I buy them?

So... what even are healing crystals?

Crystals are capable of sucking up negative, harmful energy and replacing it with positive, warming energy. For me personally, they allow me to reach a higher state of clarity and understanding, make me feel refreshed, and bring me to a deeper place in my meditations. They have been used for centuries; historical evidence shows that it was commonly used in Ancient Egypt. The idea of their energy is that they were extracted from deep, energy-condensed caves, and that very energy is contained within the crystal and can be utilized through the crystal.

There are theories that claim that bodily dysfunctions, from headaches to kidney disease, derive from energy blockages within the 7 chakras. Not every crystal aligns with a chakra, but they all provide a specific force of energy to its user
