The healing power of gemstones and crystals is something we’ve always been aware of, yet if you’re like me you probably never really took it seriously. Throughout history, ancient civilisations have always sought the healing properties of crystals and gemstones to release physical, emotional, and spiritual tensions. These gemstones reflect, store and transmit light and thus receive and give off energy. It is thought that the reason our bodies respond to the healing properties of certain stones is due to the fact that we are naturally receptive to the vibrations emitted by these stones. The laws of physics dictate that our thoughts guide the energy, and energy follows thought. Read below to learn more about the healing power of crystals and what gemstone is right for you…
