“These gems have life in them: their colors speak; say what words fail of.”
George Eliot (1819-1880)

Perfect Health is a topic many of us are interested in at this time, whether it is our own health or the health of our children or aging parents. My crystal friends are quite ecstatic at the prospect of offering their help and guidance to all of us on this journey towards health of body, mind and spirit. The most important thing for us to remember when it comes to using crystals is to honor our own inner voice or guidance. This is especially true when we are choosing the crystals we want to work with to create health and wellness.

It can be said that all crystals can assist us with creating health, however there are certain crystals that have intended themselves for the specific purpose of generating health on the physical level. There are literally thousands of types of crystals to choose from when you are embarking on your crystal healing journey; don’t be distracted by all of these choices! The one thing you can be guaranteed is there are no wrong choices! If you are drawn to a particular stone but there is no research that supports it will help you with your health concern-buy it anyway! We each possess our own distinct and unique energy field and like snowflakes no two are exactly the same. Our Crystal friends know who they can help and will reach out to us in their own way.

Once you have chosen your crystal or crystals there are a few things that you may want to complete in order to connect and prepare it for use. The following is my own opinion on preparing the crystals, in no way is this exhaustive of all the different methods used for this process. Again, follow your guidance and in the absence of certain techniques your own energy & intention/ thought is the most valuable tool you possess for crystal preparation.

1. Hold the crystal in your hands and using your breath blow forcefully over all sides of the crystal. In your mind or out loud say, “Clear this stone.”
2. Spend some time with the stone; hold the stone in front of your heart and ask in your mind or out loud to be connected with all of the loving and healing aspects of the stone. Allow your self sufficient time to really feel that this stone is now a part of your ‘family’; a part of you.
3. Now ask the stone to please help you with your health concern. Again allow time to ensure the stone is ready for the purpose you are requesting.
4. Finally, thank the crystal for its gift of healing.

Now it’s time for the fun stuff. As I had mentioned earlier all crystals can be used for healing, but just as we might search Google for information it is always a quicker process if we actually know the name of the website we are looking to find The following is a brief list of some crystals and the physical ailments they can help to alleviate. I tried to keep this list focused on stones that are readily available either on-line or in your local gem/metaphysical shops.

As you can see there are many crystal friends available to you as assistants on your journey towards whole health of body, mind and spirit! When working with crystals, it is suggested to limit the number of types you use for your healing. My suggestion would be to pick the one that most calls to you and if you feel a need you can always pair that crystal with either a clear quartz or a diamond to help amplify the energy of your chosen stone. There are many ways that you can utilize your new crystal friend such as laying the stones on each of your chakras or energy centers, holding them in your hands, keeping them in your pocket or perhaps wearing jewelry that contains your favorite crystal friend. Whichever method you choose will be the perfect method-have faith in your Divine Inner guidance as it is always leading you in the direction of true bliss & perfect balance!

On behalf of the Crystal Kingdom we wish you the best of luck as you embark on this path of healing. Follow your inner Divine wisdom and infinite opportunities will present themselves to you each moment of your day.

With Angel & Crystal Blessings,
