Crystals have been used for centuries to heal and bring peace, but what are they exactly?


Crystals can be found all over the world.
They come in many shapes, colors and sizes. Different crystals even have different properties depending on where you find them and their unique mineral makeup.
In this blog post we will explore what crystals are used for, how they work and some of their benefits.


What are Crystals?

A Crystal is a solid body with a geometrically regular shape, they were created as the Earth formed and have continued to change and develop as the Planet itself has changed.

Each Crystal has its own unique crystalline structure, whether it grew underground, dripped into form or grew from layer upon layer, this all adds to their individual properties and how they function.

However the Crystal has formed, each crystalline structure can absorb, and emit energy in a positive way.

Crystals take on different colours and different energies dependant on their individual mineral make up and the energy of the land the it formed in.

Crystals have been used since ancient times to heal, energize and bring peace.
They were used in jewellery and as Talisman for protection.
Crushed and ground into their body armour and also worn.

There are plenty of crystals and lots of positive benefits that make this a great option for anyone interested in a holistic way of helping themselves with the aid of these natural crystals.
There are many different crystals to choose from, sizes, shapes and colours!


How do they work?

You can use crystals as an accessory or just place them around your home (or anywhere else you want). Keep your crystals out on display so that its energy will radiate throughout the room. You can also meditate near your crystals or hold one in your hand and benefit from its vibrations, offer calming qualities while acting as a filter against negative energies, helping to heighten your experience whilst helping you also relax deeper.

Crystals work Holistically, which means they work on the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional levels of being.

They work through vibration, balancing, energising and breaking down dis-ease within our own energy field, also known as our Aura, the bio magnetic sheath that surrounds our physical bodies. (think of the ‘ready break’ breakfast cereal man with the light around him)

Within our Energy Field we have link points, known as our Chakras.
A chakra is a vortex of energy that regulates the bodies vibrational state.
We have 7 main Chakra Points running down the center of our body, with many more smaller ones. (more on chakras another time)

Many illnesses whether it be physical, mental or emotional will leave a dis-ease, a negative area within our energy field.
As our energy flows around our body, it can gradually build up over the dis-eased area which in turn has a negate impact on the physical body even more.

Crystals can be used to bring in the right vibration of energy to help dissolve, energise, balance and realign and negative and dis-eased areas within our Energy Field.

By linking Crystals with the correct Chakra and energy vibration needed, you can achieve a very powerful healing and regain balance.

Working holistically isn’t a replacement for Medical treatment, it works on a totally different part of us.
There is no operation that can cure a energy block, in fact things like that can have a negative impact and leave trauma.

Crystals, used correctly have been and are a brilliant way of healing and adding some balance and strength to our own energy field, and life force.


Some Crystal Benefits:

  • Bring balance and alignment to your energy field.
  • Aid in easing physical, Mental and Emotional pain.
  • Help to ground you and feel more centred.
  • Adds positive energy into your daily life and home.

As we have mentioned before, there are lots of different types of crystals, all having their own unique healing qualities.
We can also relate crystals to our chakras by colour as well as their healing properties.
This is always a good starting guide to help you know which crystal can help with what chakra.

  1. I absolutely love this explanation on what crystal are, where they originate and ways they can help heal and bring comfort/calmness into our lives.
    I’m fairly new to the world of crystals in general.
    My first time holding a crystal from my chakra set I immediately felt the energy strongly like a rushing wind.
    That feeling will stay with me forever, it gives me tingles as I write this.
    I love reading about anything crystal related, meditating with them and giving them as gifts to friends and family.
    Thank you for this blog as I look forward to all the information to come
