The power of Crystals

Crystal healing is an ancient practice of using natural gemstones and crystals to heal the body, stimulate the mind and activate the soul. Countless proofs have been found throughout history where the healing power of crystals has been mentioned in various cultures and civilizations. We have long known from Egyptians, Mayans, Sumerians and Indians that they adorned themselves with crystals to ward off evil and protect themselves from dark forces.

Crystals are natural minerals usually found beneath the Earth and formed through thousands of years of crystallization in various environmental conditions. Because crystals are inherently connected to nature, they have an incredible power to sense pain and unease in a human body and to heal the body and mind.

Agate Discharge

Agate can energetically cleanse or discharge you in several ways:

  1. Moonlight: place the stone on the windowsill at night under a full moon. Always do this behind glass and don’t forget to take your stone out of the sunlight in the morning.
  2. White Sage or Palo Santo : With dried white sage or Palo Santo (Holy Wood) you can clean quartz species by keeping them in the purifying smoke for a while.
  3. Selenite: Selenite rods are ideal for cleaning your crystals. Simply place your crystals against the selenite or put them together overnight in a box or bag.
  4. Hematite: Another way to discharge your stones is to put them in an abalone shell with hematite stones overnight.
  5. Water: Hold the stone under running water for a few minutes, dry well.
