You don’t have to be a spiritual guru to understand how crystals and minerals can help your body to balance itself out when it feels most anxious. Today, many people self-medicate with pills when they want to relieve depression, improve their energy, or even eliminate anxiety. Unfortunately, this need to take medication not only prolongs the problem, but it can also lead to much worse side effects. Why take such chances when you have everything you need right here on this earth? As a matter of fact, many of you may even have some of the essential minerals in your own garden. Let’s take a moment to discuss just how important some of these minerals are to your health and overall wellbeing.
This planet contains over 5,000 identified minerals that all have the power to heal individuals both physically and spiritually. According to The Modern Guide to Crystal Healing, minerals are generally one chemical composition that is naturally occurring, solid, inorganic, and has an internal crystalline structure. Although not all crystals are minerals, all minerals are indeed crystals. These natural elements work with our bodies to enhance our ability to heal ourselves naturally. The power of crystals on our bodies are transformed through two different means: vibration and color.
Vibration: Scientists agree that all living things consist of atoms and are in constant motion. Metaphysically, every object is surrounded by its own vibrating sphere of energy. When you think of crystals in this aspect, remember that they are symmetrical patterns put forth by its own atoms, creating a ‘crystal lattice’ that allows them to transmit their own force of energy and vibration. This can explain how a person might begin to feel uplifted the moment they are near certain crystals that have a healing element.
Color: The vibrant colors of crystals have been known to serve as healers for both health and spiritual well-being. According to scientific studies, we are greatly affected both physically and emotionally by the colors that surround us. Proof of this is evident when you feel a certain way inside of a room filled with calming colors, as opposed to being in a room that is painted all bright red. The colors of crystals can and will assist in uplifting your mood when you add them to your home, bedroom, or office.
Examples of a few crystals that can assist with your personal balance is Tourmaline, Quartz Crystals, Amethyst, and Selenite. All of these have healing elements that can calm you when you are feeling anxious, unsteady, nervous, or even angry. Tourmaline and Selenite are most known for their ability to emit positive energy, and to transmute energy that might be negative. If you are feeling nervous or frightened, simply hold either Tourmaline or Selenite in both hands and slow down your breathing. Close your eyes while taking in deep breaths and feel the positive energy of the minerals in your hands. You will begin to feel a slight difference in your mood in a matter of a few minutes. This is the power of crystals.
Rather than taking medication for your anxiety, depression, or mood-swings, try surrounding yourself with the healing powers of crystals. See for yourself if it will make a difference in your life, and then do yourself a favor…join the rest of us on the journey of spiritual, mental, and physical well-being. It will be well worth the ride.
