Ultimate Guide to Crystals for Beginners


Crystals have been used for centuries for their healing properties. They are believed to have special physical and/or optical properties that can interact with the body’s energy field and create balance and alignment. Crystals can be used for healing purposes by placing them on or near the body, meditating with them, or exposing them to sunlight, moonlight, or X-ray radiation. 

Some of the benefits of crystals that are claimed by some sources are: staying alert and focused, promoting self-healing, inner peace, calmness, and relief, promoting spiritual growth and enlightenment, and enhancing psychic abilities. However, these benefits may not be noticed or experienced by everyone, and some may never come up. ¹²³
