A Beginners Guide to Wearing Healing Crystals
Posted on April 23 2019
People have been wearing crystals since the beginning of recorded history. Shamans, kings, queens, and even warriors would don themselves in crystals and gemstones.
These days, you don’t have to be royalty to wear crystals. The power and magic of crystals are known to many so much so that some women even wear them in their bras!
I’ve been drawn to the power of healing crystals since I was a teenager and I translated that love into a business creating custom made crystal jewelry for people like you. In addition to creating the jewelry, one of my passions is educating people on what the crystals mean, so they know how the crystals are benefitting them.
So let’s dive into how this all actually works, and how you can benefit from wearing crystals and gemstones in your everyday life. If you're totally new to this, stick around until the end for some suggestions on what crystals you can wear specific to what is going on in your life.
How Does It Work?
Everything is vibration. This is not a new age theory, this has been scientifically proven. The crystals you’ve been collecting and the crystal jewelry you wear all contain a vibration specific to that crystal. So when you wear a crystal, you are allowing that crystal to alter your vibration.
Benefits of Wearing Crystals
There are several ways in which wearing crystals can benefit your overall well being.
- Many people believe that crystals enhance your physical, mental, and spiritual being by affecting your energy centers (chakras) and your aura.
- Crystals can also offer energy protection from negative thoughts, specific places, or people who may otherwise drain your energy.
- Some crystals can be used to provide clarity when you are otherwise feeling stuck or confused.
- Wearing crystals can also help if you are on a mission to increase your intuition, channel your higher self, or angel guides.
How to Choose a Crystal to Wear
So now that you understand how wearing crystals can benefit you, where do you start? How do you know which is most appropriate for you?
One way is through intuition. I suggest browsing through my inventory and seeing what crystals call to you. You can then follow up by reading about them as each of my Etsy listings has a description of the metaphysical properties pertaining to the crystals used in the jewelry.
