Where Do They Come From?

Crystals and stones used for healing come from countries around the world. Madagascar, for example, has become one of the world’s largest producers of rose quartz, amethyst, tourmaline, citrine, labradorite, carnelian and others. That’s because the landscape of Madagascar has a naturally high volume of these crystals and stones.

Rhodozite is another example of a stone that is primarily from Madagascar. At Crystalis, we offer a wide range of rhodonite bracelets and other jewelry made from stones that have been mined in Madagascar. But this is just one of many sources for crystals and stones across the globe.

Identify

Next, address these issues by finding the right healing crystal to meet your needs. While this list has a number of options, it is far from complete. There are plenty of other crystals out there, and you should select your healing crystal based on what you need in your life.

Address
Address

Figure out what you are missing in your life. For example, are you having trouble falling asleep at night? Or, are you having trouble focusing on the task at hand? Perhaps you are having issues with relationships with loved ones in your life?

Intuition

When you narrow down your crystals or stones to a few options, it is time to use your intuition. Sometimes, people sense a physical pull to one crystal or another. Trust your instincts and do not ignore this. This is the universe telling your subconscious that there is a healing crystal that can help you.

Once you find the right healing crystal or stone, make sure that you use it or wear it on a regular basis. This will help you build the spiritual connection that you need to get the most out of your crystals.

How To Take Care of Your Healing Crystal

Cleansing with Water

In order to get the most out of your crystals or stones, you need to care for them properly. Water is an important part of the cleansing process, whether you’ve just purchased a stone or have been using it for a while already.

Why cleanse with water? As you travel with your crystals or interact with others, it is possible to pick up negativity along the way. Water is needed to remove the bad energy from the crystal and reactivate its healing power:

1

Hold the crystal under cold, running water straight from the tap.

2

When feasible, hold the crystal under a source of natural water.

Try to make sure the water is relatively cool.

You can also add some sea salt to the water to increase its ability to extract negative energies from your crystals. Also, consider burning some sage to remove any negative energy from the air. Finally, consider leaving the healing crystal out to dry under a full moon or in the bright light of the morning sun. As the light filters through the crystal, this will also remove negative energy from it.

Setting the Right Expectations

In addition to physical care, you need to care for the crystal mentally as well. In order for crystals and stones to be effective, you need to focus on the healing crystal itself. Removing all skepticism surrounding the power of the healing crystal is crucial for expunging negative energy from it. It is important for you to respect the abilities of the crystal in order to experience the benefits on a deep, almost spiritual level.

How To Use Your Healing Crystal
