Positive thoughts lead to positive outcomes. The simple yet profound message behind the law of attraction is the reason why people have turned to crystals for centuries. Ancient Greeks and Romans reportedly used crystals for protection in battle. Ancient Egyptians believed gemstone crystals healed and protected. Meantime, sacred Indian texts and Chinese history spotlight crystals in medical treatment. With the emotional heaviness and financial strain the world has been under for the last year and half, it appears natural for a growing number of people to seek the potential healing powers of crystals and stones. We've created a beginner's guide for any of you curious or new to crystal healing.
What Is Crystal Healing?
Each crystal is said to have a different effect on the mind and body. From prosperity to peace to protection, the healing benefits vary by the stone. "Crystals’ vibrations arise from the unique way their atoms and molecules move and interact,"says Amy Mercee, holistic health expert and author of The Mood Book: Crystals, Oils, and Rituals to Elevate Your Spirit. These vibrations and energies can then supposedly affect our bodies—and mind.
How to Choose your Crystals
Determine your most pressing need or desire, like easing stress or releasing negativity, and choose a pertinent crystal to hold during meditation, to carry with you daily or to place in your home as a physical reminder of your intentions.
At Olive & Ollie, we're combining the purported power of crystals with a special selection of our coconut wax candle. Two cleansed crystals are placed in each jar to help you focus on your intentions and manifest the outcome you wish to see. You also have the option of carrying your crystals with you once the candle has burned. Check out the 5 ways you can incorporate crystal healing with the Olive & Ollie candles you’ve grown to love:
