What Is Crystal Healing Anyway? ๐Ÿ’Ž Here Are 5 Crystals To Get So You Can Kickstart Your Healing Journey!

My personal spiritual wellness journey is highlighted by (but not limited to) five major parts; affirmations, holistic skin care, chakra healing, herbal healing and CRYSTAL HEALING.

A coincidence that each are interconnected? I think nottttt.

Before we jump into what crystals would be beneficial for beginners looking to kickstart their crystal healing journey, let’s first ask ourselves: WHAT IS CRYSTAL HEALING ANYWAYS?

Crystal healing is a holistic, non-invasive, vibrational energy-based system of healing. The technique uses precisely placed crystals either on and/or around the physical body to help aid with evolution and ascension in our physical and spiritual bodies.

Crystals have the ability to absorb, focus, direct, detoxify, shift, transmute and diffuse energy within the human and/or environmental energy field.

In the context of crystal healing, illness is dis-ease, the final manifestation of spiritual, environmental, physiological, psychological, emotional, mental, karmic, and/or ancestral imbalance or distress.

Beginning that healing process means aligning the mind, body, heart, soul and environment back into harmony thus restoring the bodyโ€™s natural rhythm and equilibrium. The main influence for healing is the chakra philosophy of disease caused by energy imbalances.

Now that we know the basis of what crystal healing is, how do you begin if you are new to the practice? How do you know what crystals to buy?

Nearly every Thursday at 7pm, I go live on instagram, to talk all things spiritual and holistic wellness. During one of my sessions, I was joined by Eyereen, mental health advocate, self care practitioner and founder of Brown Girls Heal Wellness Community.

The focus of our convo? Crystals for those new to the journey. So without further a-due, here is a round up of crystals that we both believe are best for beginners.

Crystal 1 โˆ™ Amethyst

Amethyst is a stone relating to the Third Eye and Crown chakras.

Sidenote โˆ™ writing that out reminds me that I need to make a post about what chakras are! That will be coming very soon babes. But to put it simply, chakras are energy centers within our body. There are 7 ‘major ones’ – each ruled by an element, and is symbolic of something in our spiritual and physical bodies. For example, the sacral chakra is all aboutย creativity, emotions and pleasure. It is ruled by the womb/lower abdomen. Now back to Amethyst …

It is a stone of spiritual growth, prosperity, creativity and passion. This stone helps to Amethyst Rocks | Tumbling Amethyst | Rough Minerals for Salequiet the mind andย enhance our meditative experience.

Crystal 3 โˆ™ Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz is a stone of the Crown chakra.

Crystal 4 โˆ™ Black Tourmaline

No crystal set is complete without a stone of protection!

One of my favs are Black Tourmaline, a beautiful powerful stone of the Root Chakra.

Black Tourmaline, repels and blocks negative energy -within a person orย space. It helps to cleanse, purify, andย transform dense energy intoย a lighter vibration.

A good stone for groundingย Black Tourmaline also helps to harmonizeย and balance all of the chakras. It can also beย used to help release fear and boost self confidence.

Sidenote: If you are someone that believes they are being called to be a healer/energy practitioner/spiritual alchemist or anything of the sort, I would highly suggest getting this crystal.
