Crystals for Health, Healing and Happiness

Updated on January 25, 2011


Have you ever sat there and thought you could really do with some help to get you through a job interview or motivation to get you through a project or help with a difficult confrontation? I’m sure you all have because I know I have.


Healing crystals can be used for many different things and have always been considered as special and extraordinary with their fascinating forms and unusual colours.

Crystals are known for wearing as jewellery and in alternative medicine to cure illness and meditation but did you know that you can use them to balance your mind, life and insecurities?


The basic colour and meanings are;

Black                                       grounding

Brown                                      enabling

Red                                          energizing

Orange                                     releasing

Yellow                                     organising

Green                                       balancing

Blue                                         communicating

Indigo                                       cooling

Violet                                       integrating

Pink                                         accepting

White                                       cleansing

Clear                                        clarifying


All you need to do to start is go into any mind, body and spirit shop and pick up any crystals that appeal to you, if it jumps out and you think what a beautiful stone it is – Get it. These can vary from 50p through to £10 or more (all of my crystals cost me a small 50p) you don’t need to go overboard and spend a fortune.


You will need to cleanse your crystals to get rid of energies and so they only hold your energies and this can be as simple as running your crystal under water and then place in sunlight to dry. You can really go to town and use incense smoke or ring chime bells to cleanse your crystals but in my opinion this is a little extreme as running it under water in my eyes does the trick.


Below I am going to give you a sample of some crystals and what they can help you. All you need to do is wear the stone, whether as a necklace, bracelet or earings or just carry it around with you, in your pocket or in your bag.



Use to counteract mental stress and confusion. Heals stress and stress related illness it brings peaceful resolution to emotional issues.



Creates new mental pathways, enhances communication skills. It lowers blood pressure and eases nervous stress conditions.



Brings acceptance of the self and acceptance of personality traits that have caused mental anguish.


Kunzite and Hiddenite

Allows us to feel safe, eases depression and all manic disorders. It heals the nervous system and stops panic attacks.



Increases the ability to hold positive thoughts also amplifies the power of your thoughts and prayers. It helps you work through your emotions.



Calms and focuses an overactive mind. Deepens understanding of underlying issues also eases addictions and addictive traits within the personality.


Blue Topaz

Calming and inspiring, it stops the build up of anger, resentment and bitterness. Blue Topaz aids clear communication.


This is just a few of the many crystals that are available and each and everyone of them have their own cleansing quality. You can either use the crystals like that and keep them under your pillow at night or around your neck or in your pocket and let the crystal do all the work or you can do what I do and that is dedicate your crystal. Normally its only Clear Quartz that are “programmable”, the way to programme your crystal is by holding it to your third eye chakra and concentrate on the purpose to which you want to use your crystal for, remain positive while you fill your crystal with your energy. I use mine for remembering my dreams, my worry crystal (to take away my worries), my assertiveness crystal (to make me assertive at work when needed) and believe me I have many more…


Having crystals and keeping one with you each day for whatever reason gives you the uplift and motivation to get on with whatever life throws at you, is it the crystals doing their magic or is it all in the mind? Whichever it is, I know it works for me.

      The use of crystals is more powerful and life changing then anyone can realize. I have used rose quartz to bring love and a positive energy as well as to protect against evil entities.Try them just by having one in your pocket all day and let it heal and give you good vibes.

      This is helpful to me. I like the idea of wearing a bracelet or necklace containing a gem. I used to have a small crystal I would keep with me. It was helpful and inspiring.

      Hi saksare, thank you for your comments im glad you enjoyed my hub. I do believe that they do affect lives by grounding and balancing you and giving you strength throughout tough times.

      If you use crystals regularly over the weeks you will notice that your wellbeing improves and that you cope better with difficult situations and you will feel more settled in yourself.
