Crystals! and other healing stones.
Now you only need a few stones and they needn't be large to have an impact. Crystal and healing stone therapy dates way back to the Inca's and Ancient Egyptians with their use of Lapis Lazuli, Quartz Crystals, Jade and so on. They used them for their adornment and healing powers.
Crystal and stones are made over many thousands of years by the earth and they all have a vibration/ energy field of their own. This is where the healing comes in. Everything has it's own vibration and it is thought when you are feeling stuck or down you have a low vibration. Crystals and stones help to lift this energy vibration by improving the energy field thus improving the energy vibration of the home or person. This can actually be seen using Krilian photography. Even blood platelet changes have been photographed under a microscope after a crystal healing.
What types of crystals and healing stones will help?
As I mentioned before all crystals have and energy field and effect but listed here is a basic first aid kit of crystals for the beginner. There are crystals that correspond with the Chakras and aid in helping organs of the body but that is a whole other hub. Here we are just covering replacing bad vibes with feel good vibes.

3 easy ways for you to use crystals and healing stones.
So here are my three easy ways to incorporate the healing energy of crystals and stones into your life and home.
- To start with get one each of the stones mentioned above, make sure they are small, pop them in a small jewellery or gift bag and pop them in your pockets, bra or socks for feel good vibes all day long.
- As you increase your collection add a stone to each room. This will get a wonderful energy throughout the house. Study up a bit more and decide on which one's suit which room e.g. Amethyst and Rose quarts are great general stone's for all rooms. Amethyst is also terrific by the computer for clearing the electro magnetic charges they emit. Citrine is great for your office or where you do your accounts as it is thought to attract money. There are stones to help with sexual problems which are good for the bedroom. The list is endless. Crystal and healing stone energy gets more and more fun the more you learn. Don't stop there, then you can go out into the garden and get the good vibes going there too.
- Directly add crystals and stones to your drinking water. Of course make sure the stones are very clean and pop them into a jug of water. Let this stand overnight. The stones charge the water with positive energy and that is then adsorbed by you when you drink the water.
Don't forget to clean your stone's!
Cleansing your stone's is VERY important.
You need to regularly cleanse your stones. Most crystals will absorb negative energy from their surroundings. This is one of the reasons crystal and stone's are so powerful, as they have strong protective and healing energies. Some stones even go cloudy when they are burden with heavy energy and become clear again after cleaning. There are a couple of crystals and stones that self cleanse but be safe a pop them all in for a good clean.
"How often do I clean them?" I hear you say.
This all depends on how negative the energy is around you. If it is really heavy energy clean them once a week at least. As the energy shifts to a lighter feel you can knock it back to once a fortnight, then monthly. Always clean them at least once a month to allow for new good vibes power.
If you have a tragedy happen in your home or a very depressed or negative visitor. Clean your stones soon after.
"How do I clean them?" Is the next question your asking. Well there are a few ways to do this.
You can soak them in ocean water overnight. You can make up your own salty water to soak them in. Leave them outside under a full moon. Leave them outside in a sunny place but be sure to check each crystal. Some deteriorate in the sun. A simple Google search will help you there.
You can get your crystals at your local metaphysical store or fair, Ebay always have a great range as does Amazon.
So now you know a little about healing stones and crystals I hope this helps you all get your good vibes back. "Out with the old and in with the new", I say!
