Crystals- Healing energy for the physical
Today I will covering a specific groups of crystals. People tend to look at crystals and go…oh yes I need “healing crystals” well healing crystals are very wide range when you think about it. Just like there are many pharmaceuticals out there that treat specific ailments, or herbal remedies for that matter. So why don’t we break down that list and get a better idea of what type of ailments we can expect to be looking at:
Self love/self worth
Chakra work and alignment work
The list is very extensive, so you its better to know which one you are trying to reference to. I’m going to pick a topic for today and then move on to a new one as weeks go by as rocks are one those things that are a high interest and they should be (as they are like our partners in crime or so I think of it that way).
When I talk about physical ailments I talk about a wide variation. For right now I will outline the most common stones that people would find in a common shop or would have tendency to pick. I will also list a couple that I find have some very good benefits too that you should maybe take a look at if you ever (that is if we ever…) get around to going to a rock show or festival where there are multiple vendors selling many different crystals.
