When people face a conflict between their mind and body, they resort to different methods that may help them retain inner peace. Some may turn to yoga, journaling, meditation, or similar activities. If you’re anything like me, then you may turn to your healing crystals.
What are healing crystals?
If you’re new to using crystals, you may wonder how crystals can help your inner healing. Since the olden times, crystals have been revered as objects of healing. Here at Lattice Gems, we do not proclaim that they cure physical ailments (consult your medical practitioner for physical ailments), but they work wonderfully for reflection, mindfulness, and the healing of your mind. At the core of it, healing crystals help ground your soul to this world and help you practice peace within yourself. It’s essential that you choose the right crystal for yourself. To do that, the first thing you need to do is to set a mindful intention that your chosen crystal will help connect you to your manifestation. Trust in higher powers and keep in mind what you want to heal – then you’re all set!
Which crystals have healing properties?
Not all crystals are created equal. Although crystals may share some common properties, they are by no means identical to each other. Different crystals have different energy, and here are some crystals that can help you with your healing.
White or clear crystals are always at the forefront of crystals with healing energy. White stands for clarity, and that translates into their power to clear out your mind from negativity. It can also help with clarity of conscience, as well as mental clarity. On top of that, they help balance out the energy in your body, so you don’t become victim to the imbalance between your mind and heart. Clear quartz is a master healer that can be used for any and all conditions. They dispel negativity and clear away negative energy, and can be used to purify and clarify the spiritual, mental, and physical planes. If you are looking to stimulate your crown chakra, use clear quartz to connect with higher planes and to leap into the infinite possibilities offered by the universe.
Clear quartz is often paired with the classic rose quartz to amplify its powers. Rose is largely regarded as the symbol for love. Rose quartz, therefore, helps with maintaining clarity and harmony within all your relationships, both with other people and with yourself. In today’s day and age, self-love is also essential, so rose quartz is perfect for that! Calming and reassuring, rose quartz also helps to comfort in times of grief. This beautiful pink crystal dispels negativity and protects against environmental pollution, replacing it with loving vibes. Incorporate rose quartz into your gratitude practice - sending love wholeheartedly to all aspects of your life is a guaranteed mood elevator.
Purple is much more than just the color for royalty. Purple represents protection, healing, and purity. All these qualities, specifically purifying, help you get rid of any negative thoughts that plague your mind and increase your spiritual wisdom. It protects you from future negativity and anything that may upset your inner peace. As a calming crystal, amethyst guides you toward relaxation and restful sleep and gives off chill vibes. If you only have one crystal in your bedroom, Amethyst is the way to go. Keeping a piece of Amethyst on your bedside table or under your pillow will aid in a number of sleep problems. It purifies your mind and clears it of negative thoughts, perfect for those who suffer from insomnia or nightmares.
Moonstones are well known for encouraging and fostering inner growth and strength of self. Besides dispelling the negativity around you and within you, it helps soothe anxiety and any uneasiness you have about improving yourself and taking the next step. It is also known for new beginnings, so if you feel rooted in your current spot and can’t move forward, then try using this crystal to change your fate! Apart from its beautiful blue glow against a milky white sheen, Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success, and good fortune in love and business matters.
