Beginning your crystal journey

Have you recently shown an interest in crystals and are wanting to learn more in-depth about what they do? Well then, amazing! You are in the right place.

Crystals are natural mineral formations that can be found around the world in all wonderful sizes and colours. To put it in perspective, there are so many crystals out there underneath our feet and they all vary in formation. Crystals are often used in spiritual and healing practices as they are believed to have metaphysical properties, for example, some crystals are said to help with abundance, some with love and relationships, others with protection and some with grounding.

Crystals can be used for a variety of purposes, such as healing, meditation, and decoration. Some people will even use crystals to help them focus or to even have a better sleep at night. Others will place their crystals around their home to create a positive and peaceful environment that will also assist in balancing their energies and reducing stress. Practitioners believe that crystals can help to balance the energy of the body and promote healing. This can include physical healing, as well as emotional and spiritual healing.

Many individuals do often use them for their metaphysical properties, for example, Rose Quartz for love, Amethyst for protection, etc. but others will use them for their pretty shimmers and sparkles which is fine as well! It is important to remember that there is no wrong way to use your crystals.
