Crystal Healing – A Beginner’s Guide to the Power of Crystals

The Healing Power of Crystals

Crystal healing has been used for centuries as crystals have been heralded for their healing properties, and with good reason. These natural wonders possess a unique energy that can bring balance and harmony to our lives, and help us on our healing journey. 

How Crystal Healing Works

Crystal healing is based on the belief that crystals have the ability to interact with the body’s energy system, also known as the chakra system.

The chakras are like vibrant wheels of light, representing the convergence of our physical, emotional, and spiritual energies. Each chakra serves as a gateway to personal growth and self-awareness, guiding us towards balance, healing, and enlightenment. As we journey through these energy centers, we unearth the potential to release blockages, embrace our inner strength, and cultivate a harmonious existence.

Each crystal is believed to possess a specific energy frequency that resonates with different aspects of our being. By placing or wearing crystals in the vicinity of our bodies, we can tap into their healing vibrations and restore balance to our energy fields.

The Benefits of Crystal Healing

Here are just a few of the many benefits of incorporating crystals into your self-care routine.

  1. Stress relief: Crystals can help soothe and calm the mind, reducing feelings of stress and anxiety. Amethyst, rose quartz, and selenite are especially effective for this purpose.
  2. Physical healing: Certain crystals, such as black tourmaline and garnet, have the ability to alleviate physical pain and promote healing in the body.
  3. Emotional healing: Crystals can help release emotional blockages, allowing for a greater sense of peace and happiness. Green aventurine and rose quartz are particularly effective for this.
  4. Chakra balancing: Crystals can be used to balance and align the seven chakras, promoting overall wellness and harmony in the body.
  5. Spiritual growth: Crystals can help deepen spiritual connection, promoting self-discovery and personal growth. Clear quartz and labradorite are excellent choices for this purpose.

Who am I?


Someone once told me (a well-respected mentor) that people need “experts” to live a life they value… and I didn’t believe them.

I thought everybody could find their Purpose on their own because I did. I figured out what didn’t work in my life and then I changed it. Actually, I changed me and my direction many times. And come to think of it, it was a LOT of work over MANY years!

And every time I would discover something that worked, all would be sweet and then that method would stop working. Have you ever found that? And I couldn’t work out why. I just thought it wasn’t the right method for me.

But it turns out that it was, it’s just that I had limiting beliefs standing in the way. QUITE A FEW! That I didn't even realize were there, and when I could transform those, things began to work again. My life would flow beautifully and I’d get those synchronicities to let me know I’m on track.

So that's what we do for our clients now, empower them to discover their purpose even through life’s transitions so they can reignite the spark in their next chapter.
