Crystals are one of the most powerful tools to use for any kind of spiritual work. They can be used to enhance manifestation, healing, meditation, or magic. Crystals come in a variety of colors and shapes, and they are not only beautiful, but they’re practical too! They each work to raise the energetic vibration of that space in distinct ways.
Created deep within the earth over thousands of years, crystals harness the life-giving and healing energy of the Earth, unlike any other natural element. Crystals connect us to Earth as soon as we come into contact with them.
The Celt, Aztec, Egyptian, and Native American cultures regularly adorned their bodies, buildings, jewelry and tools with crystals for specific purposes.
Today, crystals have made a big resurgence in spirituality. A variety of gorgeous crystals, in all sizes, can easily be found at any local spiritual shop. It can be overwhelming at first to know which crystals are best to choose.

How to Use Your Crystals
There are a variety of ways to use crystals for spiritual work and healing.
1. Place them in your home
Place Quartz Crystal in various places around your home to feel the energy of the room lighten. Use Rose Quartz to draw in romance by placing it in your bedroom, or use Amethyst to help you sleep by placing it on your bedside table.
2.Wear them on your body
Since crystals absorb, repel, and transmit energy, wearing them can help balance your energy field. Placing them on your body is also an excellent way to access their healing properties. For example, to ease a headache, sit quietly with a Quartz Crystal resting on the area experiencing pain.
3. Use them in your magic
Hold Aventurine in your hand while you focus your energy on drawing in prosperity and luck. Place Black Tourmaline on your altar, or by your front door, for cleansing and the protection of your sacred space and energy.
Wishing you many sparkly, crystal-filled blessings!
Love and light to you!
