What Are the Best Crystals for Pregnancy and Conception?

If you are looking to start a family or perhaps you have been trying for a while and have been using other modalities like IVF while working with your overseeing physician, you may want to consider crystal healing to enhance your chances of getting pregnant. The beauty of crystal healing is that you can use it without any risk of adverse reaction or impairment of your current methods. Crystals work on a deep level to raise your spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical frequencies.

The Best Crystals to Improve Fertility

The best crystals to improve your chances of getting pregnant are:

  • Moonstone
  • Rose quartz
  • Carnelian
  • Ruby
  • Ruby Zoisite
  • Amazonite
  • Rhodonite

Crystals and Their Properties

Crystals work by enhancing your physical, mental, and spiritual capacities. For instance, if you are trying to get pregnant while overcoming relationship issues, a crystal like rose quartz or rhodonite might work wonderfully for healing the heart. On the other hand, if you have reproductive challenges (whether male or female), using a stone like carnelian to enhance intimacy and performance might be just what you need.

Crystal healing is noninvasive. You can use crystals by simply keeping them on your nightstand while you sleep, wearing them as jewelry, rolling them over your stomach or pelvis, sleeping with them under your pillow or bed, etc. When working with raw crystals (not tumbled) it is important to make sure that they do not contain any serious metals or minerals that can be absorbed transdermally.

1. Moonstone the "Woman's Healing Stone"
