Crystals for Healing

Crystals for Healing

So many of you enjoyed the post I did about amethyst crystals for protection and had lots of questions about how exactly crystal healing works and where to find and buy crystals, I wanted to share a more in depth about crystals.

I was utterly shocked by the positive reaction to my first crystal post! Like I mentioned in the first article, using crystals for healing is something I have done both personally and in my private practice for over a decade. At first, I didn’t like talking about it openly for fear of ridicule. But more people are opening up to the positive healing effects of crystals and are open to the information and healing opportunities.


Although crystals seem inert, crystals are very much alive. They are filled with energy and are conduits of energy.  I am Christian, specifically a Catholic, and I believe that God made the energy that we are all made up of, humans, animals, plants and crystals. It’s all His Divine work and the ancient and timeless healing knowledge of nature, plants (herbs, etc.) and crystals are all tools He created for us to use to reach our highest potential, vibrational frequency, and help us heal ourselves.

Crystals can help improve your physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial health. Each crystal has a different healing property. They can support your romantic life, help your children sleep better, and amplify your personal healing power. In short, crystals help you feel happier and healthier.

Minerals form in a wide range of environments, blending chemical ingredients, pressures, and temperatures to create the specific stone. According to Heather Askinosie, one of the founders of, “Human beings are made up of energy and crystals are made up of earth energy- when these two come together vibrational healing occurs.”

Finding the right crystal for you is a fun process. Once you decide you want to find a crystal for yourself, open yourself to sycronistic events. Picking a stone in person is the best way to find the perfect crystal for you. You will want to pick it up and hold it, feel its energy and get a sense about whether or not this is the crystal for you.

After everyone asking me where to find crystals online, I found an amazing online option called This company is awesome with beautiful jewelry and they even sell individual crystals. I have several necklaces from them and individual stones and have found them to a reputable and trustworthly source. Be very leery of some wholesale sites that get crystals from China or that are manufactured instead of naturally mined.

Once you get your crystal, you will want to clean and clear it. You can do that several ways:

-Blow healing breath on it at least three times with the intention of cleaning and clearing the crystal.

Saging the crystal.

-Soaking it in sea salt water, or better yet, some ocean water.

-Burying it in the dirt outside.

-Lay it outside to get sun and moonshine. You can also lay them in a grid pattern to for added intention.

Crystals direct, amplify, and accelerate energy patterns.   They combine their individual gifts with the strength of your desires, intentions, and prayers to assist you in manifesting whatever you are working on. And remember, we are not owners of crystals; we are guardians of them, much like we are of our children and pets. Treat them with extreme care, respect, and kindness.

You can place crystals around your house. I like to place mine in certain Feng Shui areas of the house that are good for health, love and finances, or near my bead so I can feel them when I am sleeping. I also carry them on my body in clothing pockets, purses or in jewelry, or I hold them while meditating, or while going for a meditative walk. I will also often hold one or several in my lap as I am writing or working with clients over the phone.

I love that the crystals from Energy Muse come with information about each crystal and it’s healing powers and how to set the intention for each piece and stone. For more information about the different types of crystals and their healing properties, check out these favorite books of mine:

    Hi! My son has sensory processing disorder just like your daughter as well as epilepsy. I was wondering what kind, if any, crystals you keep in her room. I know nothing really about the topic but am open to any type of natural healing and therapy!

    Hi! I am wanting to purchase some crystals for my children. It’s not possible for me to get into a crystal shop right now but I am going to buy online through your link. Is it ok to get more than one type of stone as a gift? I’ve read a little bit about each stone having unique energies and sometimes they can conflict with each other. My 6 yr old lives with her Dad half of the time, and I wanted to get her something to help her to feel extra love from me, especially when she’s not with me. Also, she can be hyper, and also very dark and moody at times, and she gives up and becomes frustrated very easily when trying new things which upsets her greatly, Although we’re both very nurturing parents, I know she needs extra help feeling confidence, feeling loved unconditionally, staying calm and being positive… Several stones seem like they could help but is it ok to do that? Any thoughts you have would be appreciated!

      Yes, it’s ok to combine crystals. Rose Quartz would be a great crystal for her. Also, just FYI, she sounds like she might have some sensory issues too, and it might not all be divorce related. Have you ever looked into Sensory Processing Disorder?

        Ok cool. No I haven’t looked into SPD…never thought about it before. I’ll read up on it. 🙂 I was wondering if the MBLOVE discount is still valid? I tried using it and it didn’t work…. would love to use the link and buy the crystals from them. Thanks for any info you have!

    The discount worked! Just ordered their beautiful Light and Love bracelet for my daughter. I’m so excited, it’s so pretty and she is going to love it. Plus it has elastic which will be easy for her to take on and off every day. Thank you so much for the info Stephanie! I knew there was a reason I was pulled to your site. 🙂
