What are healing crystals?

Crystal healing applies to a type of therapy which involve placing gemstones on your body or nearby places to draw out negative energy. Crystals are a tool which work with your energy field to attract and direct energies. They have existed on the planet for millions of years and crystal healing has been a known healing form for ages.

Where is the best place to keep your crystals?

Make sure to keep your crystals and healing stones close to you. Some people keep them in their pocket, handbag or in their bra. They are also great to keep around the house. Place them on your nightstand if you want them to work their magic and improve your energies while you are sleeping or place them in every corner of a room for protection. Another place for your healing stones can be around your work desk to provide you with focus and clarity.

In other words, there are no right or wrong for where you should keep your crystals, but it is best to keep them in spots where you're around them for a substantial amount of the day.

How do I use my crystals?

Hold the crystal in your hand and set an intention on the crystal. For example, if you want to find your soulmate you can use the Strawberry Quartz and visualize that you are meeting the love of your life. The intention will then be implemented in the crystal.

It is important to keep your healing crystals close by when you use them. Just by existing they're heightening your energy. You can also mediate with them by holding them in your hand.

How long does it take to notice a difference in yourself after using a healing crystal?

How fast the crystals work is very individual. The more open you are, the faster and better they work. Being open to energies means being able to receive more energy.
