Why Crystals? (In my own words)
So many people have asked me - Why do you use crystals?
I don’t have a crazy scientific explanation, even though there are a few out there. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Studies - but to me, crystals are beyond science.
Why do I like crystals? Well. I just do.
Holding crystals, placing them on your body, and placing them in areas of your house or space are said to promote physical, spiritual and emotional healing by interacting with your body’s energy field. Do I believe this to be true? Absolutely.
There is a lot of talk about crystals providing a “Placebo Effect”. According to Google, the definition of A Placebo Effect is a beneficial effect, produced by a placebo drug or treatment, that cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to the patient's belief in that treatment.
When I am stressed and feeling drained you will often find me holding onto a clear quartz point. At night, when my mind is racing and I cannot sleep - I’ll reach over to my nightstand and grab my biggest amethyst and hold it tight to my chest. When I am seeking more creativity and more inspiration with my business, you will find me meditating with a citrine. You will always find me with a wrist full of crystal power bracelets because I believe they give me protection & power.
I love the beauty of crystals. I love the energy they carry. Holding a crystal makes me feel good. Thinking about crystals makes me feel good. There are so many times when I focus on these beautiful little stones, my stresses, my racing mind, and my worries just melt away - even if for just a few seconds.
There may be a great scientific explanation happening here, or maybe its the Placebo Effect working (possibly even a combination of both), but whatever it is - I really don’t care why or how.
For a few seconds I am happy. For a few seconds I am free. And that is all that matters.
