What Are Crystals ?
Crystals are beautiful rock formations that have energy properties which positively interact with your body’s energy field, or chakra system. Crystals transmit a specific frequency that is unique to its natural healing property. Offering the gift of activating dormant qualities that can harmonize aspects of the emotional body that are out of balance.
Crystals connect us to the earth because they are tangible, physical formations created deep within the crust of “Mother Earth”. This energy intensifies when you connect and wear crystals close to your skin or on your body. Wearing crystal jewellery can enhance your physical, emotional and spiritual healing by positively interacting with your body’s energy field.
Wearing high vibrational jewellery can change your own vibration and have a big impact on your life, in regards to how you feel, what you think and how confident you are to express yourself. Many people experience positive changes when using crystals – in mind, body and being, and an opening of their awareness and life experiences.
