Healing with crystals is not only great for clearing energy and aligning chakras, but they are absolutely gorgeous to wear, place on an altar and incorporate them into magic and healing rituals.
Crystals vibrate at certain frequencies, excellent conduits for holding and projecting energy. The use of crystals in magical and healing ways have been around for thousands of years, it is not “new age” in any way. The ancient Egyptians encrusted the tombs of pharaohs to help the deceased find their way through the passage of death, back into the source of all. There are folktales of the Atlantans, the ancient mythical city, using crystals as a source of light and helped aid in repairing the physical and spiritual self. Crystals are most commonly worn as pendants, kept by the bedside, placed on altars, incorporated into rituals and encrusted onto magical tools utilized for co-creating and self-healing.
