Crystals can be amazing to for healing in all different areas of life. You can feel them work as you hold them against your skin. But if you leave them at home, you are without their properties all day. And sometimes, we need them most when we’re out and about, especially if we have busy or hectic lives. One of the best solutions to this problem is to wear crystal healing pendants.
They can be worn against your chest, in close harmony with your heart. They remain there throughout the day, providing balance in each of their respective energies. Not only is this an incredibly powerful practice, but it can also be quite stylish, if you know what to look for.
The Best Crystals for Healing
While many crystals provide their own forms of healing, there are a choice few that will really drive your energy in a positive direction, especially when combined. Here are just a few of these wonderful stones.
Amethyst - Deep purple and notably beautiful, the amethyst is as powerful as it is aesthetically pleasing. Known for its ability to calm, the amethyst is great for people who live a stressful life and need that extra help to center themselves during the day. It can help you keep a clear head through even the most tumultuous times. After all, its name in Ancient Greek does mean “not intoxicated”. While this applies to literal intoxication, it also means sobriety in thought.
Rose Quartz - This lovely little pink crystal is named the rose quartz not only for its color, but because of the rose’s close association with love. It promotes sensuality, which makes it a great aphrodisiac. It’s also calming, so it will aid the amethyst if they are paired together. While the amethyst keeps you calm in daily activities, the rose quartz will settle you during times of trauma.
Citrine - Another form of quartz, this crystal helps to attract wealth. Naturally, it’s a great piece to keep around your neck at work. Its healing properties come in the form of control: not only will you gain wealth, you’ll keep it as well. Citrine will help you control your spending and make purchases more wisely. It is a very useful stone to have at any time.
These three basic stones can provide much of what we need, and keeping them in a pendant, whether separate or together, can make your life a much more peaceful experience.
Proper Care for your Crystals
Having a crystal healing pendant is powerful, but it must be cared for properly. Like any crystal, you must regularly cleanse your pendant. However, you may find that you’ll need to cleanse more frequently, due to the high output of energy resulting in constant contact with your skin.
Because you may have to cleanse every day, you’ll probably want to make use of sage to cleanse, since it is the quickest way to revitalize your crystal’s energy. You can also leave your crystal out in the sunlight for a day if you plan on giving it a bit of a break.
It’s important to remember that proper care will give you all of those properties we spoke of earlier. If you don’t cleanse regularly, you won’t be enjoying the full effects of your crystal healing pendant.
