Throughout history, ancient civilizations have utilized crystals for healing. Cultures like the Egyptians, Romans, Sumerians, and Mayans have been keen on the powerful metaphysical properties of stones and crystals, as they are believed to have the ability to transform energy, as well as physical and spiritual health.
How do crystals heal?
Over the last few hundred years, research on the structure of the atom has shown that everything in the universe is made up of energy. This means that all objects, even the tiniest, are at their very core, vibrations of energy. Thus, the cells in the human body and healing crystals are made up of the same kind of energy. The energetic healing properties of crystals are no secret to researchers and scientists, as they are commonly used in modern technology today. Embedded in pharmaceuticals, television screens, mobile phones, microscopes and more— crystals are pervasive, and whether you realize it or not, they play a fundamental role in our daily lives.
From relieving anxiety to increase mental clarity, to resolving imbalance and more— there’s no limit to the benefits you can receive from healing crystals.
In this blog, we’ll cover the basic healing properties of 5 amazing crystals: Smoky Quartz, Amethyst Quartz, Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, and Fluorite.
Smoky Quartz: Smoky Quartz acts as a protective shield against negative, unwanted energy. It will absorb bad energy and negative vibrations that surround us, and transmute it, paving the way for a clean slate and a clear path.
Smoky quartz is a great stone for lateral thinking. It assists in the progress of problem-solving, releasing old thinking patterns and belief systems that hold you back, allowing you to achieve new perspectives and creative solutions. It’s the perfect stone to help you navigate through difficult conversations with your partner, as it fosters cooperation and good communication. It doesn’t magically solve problems, but it ensures that everyone involved approaches them with a clear, open mind. It can also help relieve painful emotions and soak up toxicity. It is also beneficial in helping facilitate the manifestation of your wishes and dreams.
How to use: Smoky quartz can be carried with you, or placed around your house in certain rooms or areas where the energy is seemingly disrupted.
Amethyst: Amethyst Quartz is primarily thought of as a protective stone. It assists in purifying the mind and clearing away negative thoughts. Many people use Amethyst Quartz during meditation, as it is believed to relieve stress and anxiety. It is especially useful for alleviating work-related stress because it is also linked with abundance. So at the same time as it rids oneself of stress, it can manifest prosperity. Amethyst’s metaphysical properties help facilitate good communication and intuition, which can also improve the effectiveness of work-life overall.
How to use: You can reap the metaphysical benefits of Amethyst Quartz by placing it in the right room or space. It can be placed on a desk at work, or in a living room to facilitate family bonding. It can also be placed in a room commonly used for meditation, or in the bathroom during a relaxing bath.
Clear Quartz: Clear Quartz is an essential crystal for manifesting intentions because of its powerful programmability, and amplification properties. Clear Quartz is commonly used for spiritual healing, as it is known to enhance personal growth and self-awareness. It can also help with emotional healing because it helps banish negative thinking patterns while shifting perceptions to inspire more positive feelings.
How to use: Clear quartz can be programmed with your intentions by holding it in the palm of your hands while focusing intently on what you want it to transfer into the crystal. It will absorb the intentions embedded into it, and its unique ability to amplify will manifest those goals. To maintain positive energy, it is recommended to regularly cleanse the crystal because of the fact that it continuously magnifies the energy transferred to it, and surrounded by it. Clear Quartz can also be worn as jewelry, used topically as an elixir, held in the hands during times of emotional stress, or carried with you in your pocket or purse throughout the day.
Rose Quartz: Rose Quartz is known as the stone of unconditional love. It is associated with the heart chakra, and it helps bring consciousness to a higher level. Rose Quartz helps dispel negative energy and allows every kind of love to enter your life, from romantic love to familial love, self-love, and more. Rose Quartz is highly regarded for its heart healing properties, allowing you to forgive, understand, restore trust, and see problems or situations in a different light.
How to use: Rose quartz can be carried with you in your purse, or placed in your bedroom to cultivate loving energy into your space. It can be held in your hand during meditation to help bring compassion and love into your life, or placed underneath your pillow during sleep to help manifest loving energy into your dreams.
Rose quartz crystals are even used in facial rollers and massage tools for numerous wellness and beauty benefits. Vibrations of love are emitted from this special stone, helping relieve toxic impurities from your skin, promoting a youthful healthy glow.
Fluorite: Fluorite has the ability to take in negative energy within a space and neutralize it. It restores chaotic energy and disorganization and fills your space with calmness and peace. It is also a great crystal for the workspace, as it is known to clear confusion while improving focus and concentration.
How to use: Fluorite can be held in the palm of your hands during meditation and times of relaxation. You can place it in your TV room or home office because the metaphysical properties absorb and reduce electromagnetic stress that emits from electronic devices. It can also be used to cleanse your aura by circling it above and around your body in clockwise motion.
