This may or may not be a surprise to you but I’m a big believer of energetic and spiritual healing. I also happen to be a Level IV Reiki Master and spent some time studying the works of Doreen Virtue and hold many of her certifications and have also studied under under the guidance of Barbara Brennan at her school. I also use essential oils, burn incense, own a pendulum and can feel open and closed chakras with my hands. I’m a little bit of a hippie if you haven’t already noticed.
I’ve spent a lot of my adult life studying. I’m born to be a student. No wonder I like to teach.
Having said that, I’m also a huge lover of healing crystals. I have a ton of them and they come in and out of my life depending on what I’m going through. The more going on in my life the more crystals I have on my body or in my pocket. Sometimes I just wear them because I believe they keep me grounded. It could just be the power of the mind working, but either way, they’ll always be a part of my life.
I’m most likely to be caught wearing my amber necklaces which I even wear when I Crossfit. There’s a reason behind my madness. Amber releases an acid when warmed to body temperature which seeps through the skin into the blood and can help with a ton of things from headaches, to teething, which is why Annabelle wears one too.
Here are some of my favorites. Besides amber.
Amethyst has been known as THE stone for spirituality. Its energy calms and soothes the emotions and is said to help overcome addictions and help relieve insomnia. A great choice for helping in meditations.
Angelite is said to bring serenity, inner peace and a sense of calm. It dispels fear, and anger and encourages forgiveness which I sometimes have trouble with. It’s a great crystal to dress yourself with if you’re feeling stressed out or overwhelmed which you might if you’re a mom. or a dad. or a human being with feelings and emotions.
Kyanite has unlimited uses. It is said to be so powerful that not only does it not need any cleaning but can also be set by other crystlas to cleanse them. It can help align your chakras simply by being worn and with intention can help open them. It also brings tranquility and calming energy.
Quartz Crystals can help purify and clear negative energy. It fosters healing energy around you and encourage balance, energy and protection. It can also help cancel the harmful effects of radiation and radioactivity.
Rose quartz is a stone of unconditional love. It opens the heart chakra to all forms of love: self-love, family love, platonic love, and romantic love. Rose quartz has excellent protection energies during pregnancy and childbirth. Brings self-confidence, self worth and creativity and is soothing, calming and reduces stress and tension. Who couldn’t use more love it their life?
If you don’t have any experience with crystals go buy yourself some. You’ll thank me later.
