As my life has become more spiritual, I’ve become infatuated with crystals and anything that is known to emit positive energies. Crystals have been used throughout history for their beauty and healing qualities. There are so many to choose from that can suit your positive journey. It has been said that wearing, carrying or taking crystals to bed can help to encourage the stone to release particular energies. I’m a big believer in the fact that the individual also has to be aware of their own energies and make attempts to increase their own positive emotions.
At the moment my collection is quite small and this is because I want to create a gradual process in order to try and appreciate each crystal in it’s own way. I currently have Orange Calcite, Amethyst and Green Aventurine. Perhaps some of their qualities could interest you in starting your own collection.
Orange Calcite – Soft, tranquil, happy and healthy. This stone is also said to aid the acquisition of wisdom as well as stimulating sexual energy in the body. Energy center = Reproductive.
Amethyst – A powerful aid to creative thinking, spiritual awareness and healing. It is also believed to combat insomnia. The colour is associated with the Crown Energy Centre which is located at the top of the head. It is your connection to the universe, spirit, higher power and so forth. Energy center = Crown.
Green Aventurine – Helps to reinforce decisiveness and amplify leadership qualities. Also good for decreasing anxiety and fears as well as lifting your limitation to prosperity and letting go of limiting beliefs. Energy center = Heart.
I feel that when we experience stressful times, crystals can be a reminder to center yourself and locate your spirituality. By doing this, we can allow our bodies and minds to feel back to a place where they feel lighter and more powerful.
