Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved healing stones and crystals. My Nana used to take my brother and me to this crystal shop as a child and I was obsessed. From there, I’ve collected them throughout the years, not only for their beauty, but for the power and high vibrational energies and connection to the Earth they hold. Formed from magma in the Earth’s inner core, they are one of the most ancient objects on our planet.
I especially love using them when I meditate and for intention setting. Setting intentions can be a powerful way to manifest things into your life. Kind of like a vision board helps to manifest your dreams, these stones and crystals can be used in the same way. Once we set an intention using them, they can be used as a visual reminder of our intention set, further manifesting it into the Universe. These stones and crystals have also been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations to help release energy blockages.
So how can these be used for a holistic lifestyle? If you are new to the idea of crystals, think of them as a tool to cleanse your mind just like eating healthy cleanses your body. One of my favorite stones for this is Blue Apatite, a beautiful bright ocean blue stone from Energy Muse. It is considered the stone of inspiration and promotes motivation, creativity, health, and well-being. It can increase your personal power by helping you achieve your goals and intentions. It also draws out negative energy from your body and replaces it with creative and healing energies.
You can mark the beginning of your new healthy journey or a new health goal by writing down your intentions on a piece of paper, while holding the Blue Apatite stone in your other hand. Focus on how you want your new health journey or goal to make you feel, and write down your intentions as if they are already happening. As an example, you could write:
I am feeling balanced, happy, and vibrant from the nourishing foods and healthy habits I have implemented into my life.
After you have written down your intentions, hold your crystal in both hands, repeating them aloud, and sending them off into the Universe, creating an active commitment. Aside from setting intentions, you can carry stones like this Blue Apatite with you, or have them out while you eat, workout, practice self-care, and so on. This can serve as a reminder of the intentions and goals you may have set for yourself to nourish your divine body and show it continuous self-love.
Other stones that can be used to help cultivate a holistic lifestyle and healthy well-being include:
This purple stone is a powerful healer, it helps promote reduced stress, healthy sleep and can help kick bad habits or addictions. It can even boost the metabolism and immune system. Being that it is my birthstone, it is one that I have always been drawn to.
This deep black stone helps support healthy digestion and can help with bloating, cramps, food allergies, stress, and an unhealthy diet.
This golden stone is said to carry energy from the sun. It can help with digestion, energy, confidence, and detoxing the body's blood.
It only makes sense that since these crystals and stones come from Mother Earth, that they can help connect us to a deeper, more powerful, universal healing energy. Each crystal has its own specific healing energies, so find stones that resonate with what you may be going through or seeking in life and start M A N I F E S T I N G today.
