What are Crystals?

Crystals are more than just shiny rocks. They are solid crystalline materials uniquely formed through geological processes within the earth. Each crystal has its own unique structure and energy vibration, each filled with its own powerful energy that can be harnessed to help heal the mind, body, and soul. We cleanse and protect our physical body – why not do the same for our energetic bodies? This includes mental, emotional and spiritual. 

As genius Nikola Tesla stated: “In a crystal we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being.”

What are Crystals Used For?

Crystals can help promote a healthy flow of energy in their environment. They can also protect from harmful energies such as electromagnetic frequencies and negative thoughts, emotions or people. Crystals help cleanse the body and mind of dense energy for physical and emotional benefits. 

Many different cultures and traditions have long used crystals as a tool for healing. The key is intention and purpose. Crystals are after all, living beings!

How do we utilize the healing power of crystals in everyday life?

A simple exercise you can do to harness the power of a crystal is to meditate with it in the palm of your hand. Take note of how you feel before and after, as well as any thoughts or emotions that come up. 

You can also ‘program’ a crystal by setting an affirmative intention for its purpose in your life. For example: “I attract material abundance into my life”, “I have a clear mind and vision”, “I deserve miracles”, or “I welcome in love and harmony”.

Then you can carry it with you as you go about your day, place it in your home or even under your pillow to support you with your intention.

Crystal Quality Matters! 

There are many artificial stones or low quality stones being sold in today’s market. To ensure your crystals are authentic and of high quality, make sure you ask the business you are purchasing from. They should be able to tell you where the crystal is from, how it is mined and sourced, and what grade of crystal it is. The higher the grade, the more pure and higher energy the crystal will have. For example, Nish Crystals specializes in super grade crystals which are the highest grade possible. All of our crystals are also ethically-mined and ethically-sourced.
