Crystals have this amazing ability to help connect us with the energy of the universe. They were formed in the earth’s surface millions (or even billions) of years ago, typically during periods of change—and like everything else in this world, they retain the vibrations of the planet. Energy and wisdom from the beginning of existence resides inside each mineral. We’re able to harness that energy for ourselves by wearing crystals, holding them, placing them in our homes, and even carrying them with us. Their energy can aid us in transforming ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Humans have been drawn to crystals for thousands of years. Kings and queens used them for protection, shamans use them for healing, watch-makers use quartz to tell time, and scientists use them in microchips.
If you feel drawn to a crystal, it’s likely one you can utilize in your life. When you find the right minerals for you, their energy will work in harmony with yours to enhance your life and reveal things that have been previously out of reach. On the following pages, you’ll find a few crystals to get you started.
