The Power Of Gemstones
Formed deep within the heart of the Earth, gemstones contain an incredible amount of wisdom from experiencing the many transformations over millions and millions of years. All healing crystals serve a similar purpose, which is to guide us towards our highest potential, but among the hundreds of different types, each one has their own unique vibration and healing effects on the mind-body-spirit.
The gemstones and crystals have healing properties that help to balance the body, mind, and spirit. Healing crystals and gemstones have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations; the Egyptians, Aztecs, and others incorporated them into jewelry, cosmetics, decorative statues, amulets, and much more--a testament to their powerful ability to release mental, physical, and spiritual blockages.
Both our bodies and healing crystals have energetic vibrations, which makes us naturally receptive to the vibrations of gemstones as they can align our own vibrations with theirs. This is why healing crystals and gemstones have a powerful vibratory effect when placed directly on your body. This energy surges from the crystal to you, which facilitates the free flow of energy throughout the body.
How To Choose The Right Stone
Malas are often used as decorations, jewelry, or during seated meditation. These beautiful necklaces often hold special significance for the bearer based on where they got it, why they chose the stone or the energy they feel with the beads.
Before choosing a specific gemstone for your mala, you can look at the gemstones meaning. But there are more ways to choose the best gemstone for yourself. Now I hear you thinking, ‘How to choose the right stone?’ You can choose the right stone in different ways. For example, look at your birthstone, make your choice based on the 7 chakra system, or choose on an intention. A whole other way of choosing a gemstone is to close your eyes and think strongly about the intention you have. When the intention that you have is all around in your mind, open your eyes and see which stone attracts you the most. This is what we prefer, choose with your own intuition.
Many people believe that crystals find us.
As long as you choose a quality crystal, there's no right or wrong way to select one.
Certain crystal vibrations resonate with certain energies in our bodies.
Stone energy can help everything related to energy, and when it comes down to it, everything is energy.
HOW TO CHOOSE A CRYSTAL THAT WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD
Stone energy, otherwise known as crystal energy, pertains to the energy each stone gives off. Everything in the world is composed of energy. At its smallest component, all living beings, plants, objects, and even words and thoughts are vibrating energy. Crystals are no different. Some crystals resonate at a high frequency while others resonate at a lower frequency. Neither is bad; just different. The frequency of their vibration determines how they affect us... and that is their stone energy. Certain crystal vibrations resonate with certain energies in our bodies, and when that harmonizing stone energy is in our energy field, it strengthens the energies within us.
Stone energy can help everything related to energy, and when it comes down to it, everything is energy. Here are some examples of what we mean:
Certain crystals can reduce unwanted energy like stress from the body.
Others can help free up energy blockages that are leading to pain or tension in the body.
Some crystals help our energy flow more freely through the body, which improves our physical energy levels.
There are also crystals that can help us feel certain types of energy more readily, such as happiness or serenity.

MEDITATE WITH CRYSTALS
Follow these 5 steps to set an intention for your meditation practice using your crystal:

2. Holding the crystal in your hand, with your eyes closed, begin to take deep cleansing breaths.
