If you’ve been hearing the term crystal healing recently, you’re not alone! Crystal healing has been gaining popularity in recent years as people are turning more and more toward spirituality and more natural sources of healing. If you haven’t read our first article on crystals called “A Beginner’s Guide to CBD & Crystal Healing,” go read that one first to familiarize yourself! I’ve been doing more research lately on crystals and the metaphysical realm, which has led me to finding different ways you can use your crystals - from meditation to self-healing. In this article, we’re going to cover five more crystals that you can add to your collection.
Obsidian was actually one of the first crystals I ever received, and I’ve been carrying it around in my wallet ever since. This crystal is made from volcanic glass, which explains it’s black color, although you can also find obsidian that is colored silver or brown. It is commonly thought that obsidian is a truth-enhancing and strong protective crystal and is believed to form a shield against negative energy. It is also thought to draw out any mental stress or tension we are holding on to and bring us clarity of the mind. This healing crystal is thought to dissolve emotional blockages and promote compassion and strength. I personally love this crystal because of its protective qualities. No one needs negative energy in their life, right?
Selenite, specifically white selenite, is a very unique crystal because it is thought to be able to charge other crystals. It is associated with the crown chakra, therefore believed to expand self awareness and awareness of your surroundings. It is important to note that you should not cleanse selenite with water, as it will dissolve and return to the mineral gypsum. It is commonly thought that selenite is able to open up your crown chakra as well as aiding you toward receiving higher guidance. Selenite is a very calming stone, which makes it perfect for meditation and other forms of spiritual/energy work.
Clear quartz is one of the most common crystals you’ll see, but it’s a very important one, especially for those of you just beginning to explore the world of crystals. Clear quartz is also associated with the crown chakra and is commonly known as the “master healer.” It is thought that this crystal amplifies energy and thought, as well as the properties of other crystals. Clear quartz is thought to absorb, store, release, and regulate the energy of the crystal user. It is also thought to ward off negative energy and cleanse the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual planes of existence.
Amethyst is commonly associated with the third eye chakra and is thought to be a powerful protective stone, as it protects the user or wearer from any harm. It is believed to be a naturally calming crystal as it relieves stress and pain, as well as soothe any irritability the body is holding on to. It is thought to balance mood as well as dispel any negative emotions, such as sadness or anger. Amethyst is believed to activate spiritual awareness (aka the third eye) and open up intuition, as well as aiding in enhanced focus.
Rose quartz is one of my absolute favorite crystals, and not just because it’s pretty to look at. This crystal is commonly associated with the heart chakra and is referred to as the “stone of universal love.” It is thought to restore both trust and love within relationships, therefore encouraging unconditional love. Rose quartz is believed to open the heart up to self-love, friendship, peace, and inner healing. This crystal is thought to have calming properties and is believed to provide comfort in times of grief. Rose quartz also dispels negative energy and replaces it with loving vibes and energy.
