They're beautiful and oh so helpful
Why do people use crystals for healing or to attract love?
Do gemstones really carry around the type of power people need in times of trouble?
If so which energy stone should you try, and how do you know what gemstone to buy for the type of help that you need?
When life feels like an unbalanced mess, we all turn to different things to help turn our lives around.
Some people do hobbies, others focus on spending quality time with friends.
For me, I love to look at crystals to help me out.
From experience, I have learned that certain crystals have healing and alignment properties associated with them.
The use of various gemstones can range from attracting love energies or repelling negative people.
I have even discovered healing stones can help with sickness and health.
I love using crystals when I’m having trouble with love, success, and mental clarity.
Here are six crystals I swear by because they help me.
1. Rose Quartz
Meaning - stone of universal love
This beautiful little gem if one of the most powerful gems for attracting love.
Its light pink coloring makes it an easy stone to use in jewelry or decoration too, so you can always have a little rose quartz by your side.
Don’t believe its powers?
I once bought a beautiful rose quartz pendulum necklace with a metal casing of roses.
Not even ten minutes after buying it, I got 20 new matches on Tinder and Bumble, ten new messages, and 3 people sliding into my DMs.
I still wear that crystal sparingly from the sheer amount of love it tries to attract for me.
Meaning - stone of good luck
This is a beautiful deep green stone that you can usually find in a cube-like shape.
It has ribbons of lighter green dancing throughout.
This stone is amazing to help heal from a broken heart. It attracts positive energy to you and helps promote an optimistic outlook on life.
It also helps open hearts to all types of love.
3. Green Aventurine
Meaning - stone of well-being
This stone comes in a light mint/seafoam green color with dashes of white sprinkled throughout.
It’s considered one of the luckiest stones, and therefore it’s known as the stone of opportunity.
It encourages creative and motivational energy to help solve problems as well as to put you in the best possible place going into a difficult situation.
Meaning - stone of manifestation
This is my go-to stone for success. It’s not as lucky as green aventurine, but its light orange coloring attracts good fortune.
It’s incredibly effective when starting a new business venture.
It helps to attract success, reaching your goals and being able to get to a solid foundation in your life.
It’s a great gift to give to a friend who is starting down a new career path.
5. Clear Quartz
Meaning - stone of power
Clear Quartz is one of the most popular stones for mental clarity, and for good reason.
This stone helps to promote clear, unbiased thinking.
It helps to dispel distractions, ad in combination with other gemstones, can be an extremely useful and powerful healing crystal.
Stay away from clear quartz crystals that look more cloudy, they won’t be as effective.
6. Smoky Quartz
Meaning - stone of stability
This stone is not as popular as stones like the tiger’s eye, but I find it to be extremely useful.
For mental clarity, smoky quartz focuses on dispelling contradictions.
It is a great stabilization stone, helping to ground thoughts and ideas when they become jumbled up.
It is also good at removing negative energy, which can be very distracting too.
