Crystals are incredibly versatile. They can be used in a wide range of ways to improve your life physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Gemstone amulets and talismans have long been worn or carried for protection. While wearing a crystal cannot in itself change your circumstances, a crystal that supports certain attitudes or behaviours can help you to change your circumstances for the better.
Grounding crystals: black, metallic, brown or red stones, strengthen the root chakra, which influences practicaility and survival instincts. Multicoloured stones, such as labradorite or rainbow obsidian, are excellent at preventing other people from daining your energy. Pink stones, such as kunzite or morganite, emphasize calm, empathy and understanding, so can reduce the risk of situations escalating out of your control.
All crystals that you wear or carry should be cleansed regularly to remove the imbalances that they have picked up from you and your environment. Put jewellery on a small cluster of quartz or amethyst overnight to recharge it.
Wearing or carrying lots of different stones at the same time can be counter productive, tiring and confusing the body. Alternate the stones you wear from day to day. Every so often take a rest from wearing or carrying crystals.
