A Quick Guide to Crystals
By: Nicole Bravo, Crystal Shop Owner, @supernovacrystalshop
Crystals are magical gifts created by Mother Earth, and can be traced back thousands of years. For centuries, humans have used crystals to adorn their bodies and decorate their homes, in an effort to reap the physical and mental health benefits of crystal magic. Here is a guide to choosing a beautiful crystal.
Crystal healers often say that "you don't choose the crystal, the crystal chooses you". In fact, your deep dive into crystal work begins with the selection process.
First thing is to physically hold a crystal that attracts your eye. Holding this piece in your hand starts a transfer of energy that connects directly to you. You may feel the frequency of your body changing right away. This change can vary depending on the type of crystal you are holding, since each crystal has its own frequency and helps achieve different results.
Once you have your stones, hold them in your dominant hand and focus on an intention or affirmation. Take 3 deep breaths, and then exhale deeply onto your crystal to bring it to its highest vibration. Be sure to take your crystals with you wherever you go, so that their energy and benefits surround you constantly.
