The Energies of Crystals
I believe that crystals contain energies that can be harnessed. Often used in meditation and healing crystals can be a powerful tool to channel positive energy into our lives.
For me, crystals are a reminder of my intentions. When I see the soft pink of a rose quartz crystal sitting on my dresser I am reminded of my intention: I live lovingly. When the deep, vibrant blue of the blue quartz crystal next to my bed catches my eye, I can feel my connection to the divine, and I am reminded that I trust my intuition.
