Crystal jewelry is a timeless and elegant addition to anyone's collection of accessories, but it offers so much more than the appeal to the eye. Apart from being beautiful, wearable crystals and gemstones can help you achieve the benefits of physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental healing by working with our chakras.
What are chakras?
Chakras are the energy centers of the human body that help regulate all of its processes. This includes our organ functions, our immune systems, and our emotions. From the base of your spine to the crown of your head, seven chakras are positioned throughout your body. Each has its own color, vibrational frequency, and governs specific functions. These 7 chakras are also connected to the 7 layers of the aura. If these chakras are blocked or drained, our mind, body, and spirit can not function properly. Crystal healing is one way we can help clear and balance our chakras. Chakra healing stones are color coordinated with each chakra, and can be charged and laid upon the energy centers to help open up the chakras or speed healing of certain ailments. This is because each stone possesses a vibrational frequency which the chakra can absorb to restore balance. Click here to read more about each chakra and various crystals that work well with them. Below are some of the many ways we can benefit from wearing healing crystals in our daily life.
Healing Mind, Body, and Spirit
As aforementioned, nature's gifts of crystals and gemstones work with our energy centers to improve the function of our mind, body, and spirit. Healing with crystals is an ancient practice that helps us attain healing and better general health. Crystals absorb, store, emit, and generate energy that can help you attain, a peaceful mind, a healthy body, and a clean soul. Each stone has specific healing properties, and we can select them for the areas we need help with. For example, rose quartz is known to help you become more kind and relaxed, amethyst can help combat blood sugar problems, and aquamarine can help reduce anxiety. Here is an interesting source on the use of healing crystals in ancient cultures.
Guards Against Negativity
One of the largest benefits of wearing crystal jewelry is that they can help protect you from negative thoughts or a psychic attack. Choosing crystals such as pyrite, amethyst, jade, fire agate, and many others can protect you against negative vibrations to help preserve your mood and your confidence.
Mood & Confidence Boost
Confidence is the key to success in all that we do. Crystal jewelry can help improve confidence not only by protecting you from negativity, but also by working directly with your energy centers to unlock the confidence within us. For example, stones like aquamarine can help improve communication skills. Working with amber, red calcite, or aventurine can help boost confidence as well. Crystal jewelry is also an excellent way to augment your physical strength and mental quickness. Axinite can help improve strength and endurance, and crystals like clear quartz can boost your mood and help you stay happier.
