Ever feel stressed out? Do you wish you had a quick and easy way to relax and relieve your stress? If so, using crystals for energy might be the answer. Crystals are natural stones that make up the earth’s crust. They have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations across the globe as tools for healing physical, mental, and spiritual ailments.
I’ve always been fascinated with crystals. It’s not just because various cultures have used them throughout centuries, but it’s mainly due to the fact that they can be used to harness energy.
Crystals are a way to access the natural energy in our world and direct it in a positive manner.
However, even with this ancient history in mind, most people still don’t know much about crystals and their practical application in everyday life.
In fact, many skeptics believe all it does is create a placebo effect. Today, I’m going to discuss what they are, how they work, and what type of crystals work best for raising energy.
A crystal by definition is a solid material with atoms organized in a structured pattern. Its surface shows this regularity, and it is this same internal symmetry that gives the crystal the capacity to easily draw energy from the energy.
This stable energy pattern can be used for channeling different intentions such as clarity, peace, courage, and love.
Essentially, crystals are used to raise our vibration and allow us to attune to the hidden powers of nature — to which we all have access to if only we keep an open mind.
I know it may look silly for some people, holding these “wishing stones” and asking the Universe for help. They are not exactly made for wishing per se. After all, what we need, we already have to begin with.
We use crystals to raise energy because sometimes, our minds can get clouded. The stresses of everyday life can take a toll on our well-being, and we keep this energy within us, making it difficult to practice mindfulness and stay in a higher vibrational field. Crystals promote feelings of tranquility and positivity. With some crystals, they even provide pain relief and immunity.
I consider crystals as precious gifts forged by the earth. They have seen the passing of time and remained intact, preserving their energy through their beautiful form.
People have been drawn to them since the dawn of time, being used for divination rituals, healing practices, and spiritual growth. They are also great for clearing spaces, casting spells, and enhancing power.
Every type of crystal has a specific purpose.
Here are examples of some of the most popularly used crystals today.
This crystal is associated with the root chakra and makes you feel more grounded. It’s perfect for when you want to cleanse yourself of toxic energies and you want to decompress. Put it under your pillow case or on your nightstand. You can even hold it in your hand while you fall asleep. It can help you do a reset throughout the night and wake up feeling ready for a brand-new day.
This crystal is associated with the sacral chakra and is perfect for harnessing creative and sexual energy. It also promotes a balanced female reproductive health. Some female pagan practitioners even store their carnelian stones with their tampons. When you’re feeling irritable or blue because your period is right around the corner, hold the carnelian in your hand. Or, you can lie down and place it on your abdomen.
This crystal is associated with the solar plexus chakra and makes you feel powerful and ready to conquer anything. Use this particular stone when you’re feeling less than special, tap into its energy, and make things happen! Put it in your pocket when you want to increase your self-confidence and enhance personal power in any aspect of your life.
This crystal is associated with the heart chakra and aids in developing self-love as well love for other people. It’s also a great stone to raise our feelings of spiritual love, which puts us on a higher plane and closer to our soul’s purpose. Use this to quell your anger and release any tension you’re keeping in your body. For a practical use, place your rose quartz in a spritzer filled with water. Add some rose oil to amp up its power and spray it on whenever you need to wrap yourself in loving-kindness energy.
This crystal is associated with the throat chakra and helps you speak your truth with grace and ease. It’s a great stone for people who have a fear of public speaking or have great difficulty articulating what’s on their minds. Hold the stone in your hand while practicing your speech and release all your anxiety into it. It will give you the courage you need.
This crystal is associated with the third eye chakra and keeps the effect of energy vampires at bay. It also protects you from psychic attacks because it puts you on a higher spiritual plane, vibrating at a much higher frequency. If you’re feeling less than intuitive and finding it hard to see through a challenging situation, use this stone for clarity and to connect to a higher power. Place the amethyst in a basin of water and bathe yourself with it. Let it wash away the worry and make you more attuned to the higher powers.
This crystal is associated with the crown chakra and is known as the master healer. It amplifies the power of all stones by increasing their vibrations. This is perfect for tuning in to your higher self and your spirit guides. If you’re experiencing blockages in specific areas of your life, use the clear quartz to raise your frequency and bring in light that purifies. Use it while meditating to clear your mind and be your best self.
This is a way to make sure you’ll get the most out of their vibrations when you use them for your spiritual work.
