The Benefits of Crystals
The benefits and healing properties of crystals and precious stones are well-documented.
Many healers believe that healing crystals can soothe the mind, body, and soul, aid in holistic treatment and the flow of good energy, as well as evoke and cultivate positivity and the shedding of negative emotion. These beliefs date back to ancient civilisations, with evidence that crystals and precious stones were used for healing purposes in Ancient Rome and Greece, Ancient Chinese Dynasties, Ancient India and Japan, and in the era of the Egyptian Pharaohs.
Additionally, each different type of crystal or precious stone is also known to have different healing properties, all intended to assist with various ailments, illnesses or life concerns a person may have. Crystal healing properties are generally focused on increasing and stimulating energy flow and releasing emotional blockages, as well as promoting qualities of compassion, love, respect, trust, or self-worth; and can also aid with relaxation, calmness, and stress relief.
But which crystal or precious stone is best suited to my needs? And most importantly, how should I carry around, display, or wear my crystals on my person to ensure they are close to me when I need them most? Well, read on to find out more.
How Should I Wear, Display or Carry my Crystal?
There are many different ways a person can carry, wear or display their crystals and precious gems or stones. Of course, one way to display crystals is in their natural form, as simply a polished stone. These stones are often displayed in the home, in a bowl on a mantlepiece, or the dining table, for example.
Alternatively, you can wear your crystal! Crystal jewellery, or jewellery items made from precious stones, are a very popular way to carry and display your gems. These jewellery items can come in various forms – including pendants or necklaces, earrings, rings, brooches, or even bracelets.
Of course, one of the preferred ways to wear crystal jewellery is in the form of a Crystal Chip Bracelet. Crystal Chip Bracelets are popular because they allow for close contact with the skin, meaning the wearer is in direct contact with the benefits and healing properties of the crystals or stones they are wearing. Crystal Chip Bracelets are also the most inexpensive way to purchase and wear crystals, as they are made from small shards, or chips, of stone – making them a great option for the price-conscious, bargain savvy shopper, who doesn’t wish to invest in a large crystal piece – which can be quite expensive. If looking for the very best price, you can also buy crystal chip bracelets wholesale.
