The Benefits of Crystals

Crystals have many benefits for mental and physical healing and have been used throughout history for such purposes. Many people don’t really know the power of crystals—some call it some form of “new age” stuff, but believe me when I tell you that crystals really do work and can be beneficial to your life if you know how to use them properly.

A lot of people commonly associate crystals as they do with the art of magic and following a specific religious belief. The great thing about using crystals is that you do NOT have to practice magic or follow a specific religion; anyone can benefit from using crystals for their own well-being and the well-being of others. Below, I have outlined the top five starter crystals that every person should own. I will explain the benefits of each and how you can use them to help enhance your life.

Crystals That Amplify

"Clear quartz has been known to help amplify the effects of any other crystals surrounding it."

Crystal Clear

A clear quartz crystal usually has one or two pointed ends, which makes it great for drawing out negative energy and bringing in positive energy.

1. Clear Quartz

Clear quartz is such an essential part to any beginner’s crystal collection. It can be a powerful tool to help draw out negative energy as well as bring in positive energy. Clear quartz has been known to help amplify the effects of any other crystals surrounding it. In addition, clear quartz can clear blockages, stimulate the immune system, and enhance memory. Just keeping a clear quartz crystal around is bound to help you in a number of ways. You can carry it in a pouch, use the pointed end to draw out negative energy and bring in positive energy, and you can also get a larger clear quartz crystal to help clear the negative energy in a room and bring positive vibrations.

2. Rose Quartz

Another type of quartz, Rose Quartz, is essential and has many positive benefits to your physical and mental health. Ancient myths associate this stone with the goddess Aphrodite, making it known as a symbol of love and related to aspects of the heart. This crystal helps with bringing a calm and peaceful feeling that will open your heart. It also strengthens the circulatory system and aids in circulation. It is a great crystal for helping to rid the body of toxins and impurities.

Mental and Physical Benefits

"More specifically, amethyst is good for those who suffer from insomnia as well as depression or mood disorders."

3. Amethyst

Amethyst is probably one of the best crystals to have on this list. It is an extremely powerful crystal that can benefit you on all different levels. It aids in emotional, physical, and mental healing. More specifically, amethyst is good for those who suffer from insomnia as well as depression or mood disorders. It helps with blood circulation, healthy cell growth, and is also a natural bacterial fighter and wound healer. Additionally, amethyst has been known to support and help those suffering from addictions, as this crystal was originally known as the crystal that aids in sobriety. The name of the crystal itself comes from the Greek word Amethystos, meaning “not drunk.”

4. Black Tourmaline

As essential and beneficial as Clear Quartz and Amethyst, Black Tourmaline is very widely associated as a protective crystal. It is known to dispel negative energy and protect the wearer from psychic attack and negative energies of any kind. Worn around the neck, this crystal can become very useful and powerful for everyday life.

Even in a pouch in your pocket, Black Tourmaline will have a positive effect on your everyday life, and will generally leave you feeling more optimistic and less stressed throughout the day. In addition to these benefits, Black Tourmaline is also a grounding stone and will help keep you balanced. Black Tourmaline also aids in boosting the immune system and pain relief.

5. Tiger's Eye

Tiger’s Eye is a unique and beautiful crystal that has a lot of beneficial qualities. It helps bring balance and harmony to your life as well as assisting in getting rid of anxieties and fears. It is a stone of great understanding, as it helps you to make decisions, take action, and look at things in a practical way. This stone is great for you if you need an extra boost of courage and self-confidence. In addition, this stone has been known to help those with mental and mood disorders, as it balances the emotions.

Start Small

"Starting off small is the best way to really notice the differences and changes that these crystals will bring to your everyday life."

Start Out Small and Notice the Benefits

All of the five crystals above are great to start with if you are just beginning your research and journey with the healing power of crystals. Starting off small is the best way to really notice the differences and changes that these crystals will bring to your everyday life. Start by just keeping a crystal in your pocket and note your changes physically as well as mentally throughout the day.

Did you feel that your mood was overall better? Physically, did you feel less drained and more energetic and refreshed than usual? All of these might point to the benefits that these crystals can give you in your life, but it is ultimately up to you how you use these crystals to continue your well-being and health in your life.
