In this complete yet concise guide, we will be briefly discussing what crystal healing and how to do it. If you are new to the topic, then this is the perfect piece for you to get engaged in the art of crystal healing.
What are Healing Crystals?
Healing Crystals are earthly elements that are naturally formed by the processes and forces of Mother Nature itself. As it does its routine, the earth mixes different kinds of substances, creating what is known as a “healing crystal.”
Given the complex nature of endless vibrations, tectonic movements, temperature adjustments, earthquakes, etc., unique healing crystals are formed. As such, different compounds and substances are mixed in one unique rock formation.
Furthermore, such complex process also results in various patterns and colour combinations in each crystal. This leads to a vast array of meanings and applications, with each healing crystal having its own unique set of attributes!
What is Crystal Healing?
Crystal healing is the process of using gemstones or commonly referred to as “healing crystals” to address problems in the physical and the mental states of the human person.
By taking advantage of its unique properties and meanings, each healing crystal will apply to a specific situation, feeling, or dilemma. For instance, when you are generally feeling a lack of love in your own life, tapping onto the power of a Rose Quartz can significantly ease your pain.
How do Healing Crystals affect us?

For one thing, healing crystals are understood to bring about certain frequencies and vibrations with it. These vibrations carry certain energies with it, depending on the healing crystal. For instance, Citrine is known to bring with it the power of the sun. Aside from bringing vibrations and frequencies, healing crystals are also known to remove negative energies from our bodies. Particularly the black-coloured crystals, they are known to absorb the blockages from our Chakra points. Black Tourmaline, for instance, is known to absorb bad luck.
