Healing Crystals- An Introduction

I can say I am a curious person who wants to constantly explore the world surrounding them. However, I always try to see beyond the obvious and read between the lines. One of my various interests (I could even call it an obsession), as the title suggests, is healing crystals and gem rocks. I’ve always been interested in mineral stones and have visited a lot of natural-history museums, when I was little, to learn more about them (the Internet was a luxury back then). However, just recently maybe a year or so ago, I got a really big interest in healing crystals’ qualities and the way each stone influences us.


A year ago a friend of mine gave me a Citrine crystal as a gift as I was in a difficult period of my life. So she decided the stone might help me as it attracts luck and clears off the negative energy. What you need to do is simply put it in the wealth corner of your room (the furthest right from the door) and this way increase its energy. Citrine is a solar plexus chakra (the second chakra) stone and is used to increase, magnify and clarify personal power and energy. That is why it is also called the ‘success stone’. As you can imagine, it brought me luck and soon after I got it, my problems started fading away.


The thing with crystal stones is that you have to connect with them and work with them. If you have seen the movie Avatar, there’s a scene where the main character- Jake’s avatar is learning to fly. He has to choose a banshee and tame him by connecting through the neural interface. It is the same principle with a healing crystal (not as dangerous of course). Once you get your crystal, you have to clean it physically first (wash it in a running water) and after that spiritually (keep it overnight in a bowl of water and sea salt) and then you have to create a bond with it (hold it in your hand and just concentrate) and finally charge it (leave it under sun or moon light for a few hours). Now it’s ready for use. A very important thing you should remember is your healing crystal is yours and yours alone and you should not lend it to other people.

These are the main things you should know about healing crystals. In a series of blog posts, I’ll be writing about different stones and elaborating on their qualities, how and when to use them. Feel free to ask questions or leave suggestions in the comments section.
