Your home is your sanctuary. It's where you start and end your days, both good and bad. No matter what, you are the one who gets to control the energies you'll allow to permeate that space. But sometimes, regardless of how hard you try, anxiety and negative vibes still manage to seep through the cracks and invade that glorious personal space of yours.
Healing crystals can be an excellent way to banish stress from your home, so you can leave behind the bad vibes of the outside world the moment you open your front door.
Here are five types of crystals that can help you restore a sense of peace in your personal space.
I'm sure you've heard of amethyst before, as it is one of the most common crystals out there, known for its calming, meditative power that promotes balance and peace, and eliminates impatience.
If you are new to crystals, amethyst is often listed as a good starter stone. With its immensely powerful energy, it's usually used for spiritual and emotional healing. If you're feeling like after a long day of work, you're still going home to bad vibes, adding a few amethysts around your room or apartment will help detoxify the space.
Besides, amethyst's deep purple hue is sure to add some wonderful color to your bookshelf, no?
2. Rose Quartz
Another good beginner's crystal, rose quartz is absolutely a stone you need to have in your home.
With its easy-on-the-eye, pastel pink hue, the crystal is known to promote love of all kinds. According to Vogue, it promotes self-love, platonic love, romantic love, and even familial love.
If you're looking for a more comforting energy to envelop your home, rose quartz is the way to go.
Selenite is a must-have crystal, as it calms, heals, and balances the body in a gentle and protective way. Unlike amethyst and rose quartz, it is white in color, but similar to amethyst, it helps to stabilize and the energy running through your body.
If you're having a bad day and need a cleanse in your aura, this crystal is for you.
4. Blue Lace Agate
This crystal is specifically said to help reduce anxiety and stress by soothing your vibrational energies, encouraging relaxation, and calming your nerves.
Blue lace agate is the perfect crystal to meditate with, though it's worth nothing it vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones. Crystal "vibration" has to do with the size and thickness of the cut of the stone and even the color of the stone. Every piece of matter has a frequency vibration, so that is what is referred to when discussing crystal frequencies. For all of you non-believers out there, this is purely science.
5. Black Tourmaline
I like this crystal because it acts as a sort of vacuum for bad energy. Black tourmaline is said to provide direct protection from dark energy. Plus, it's meant to ground you by providing you with a sense of power and self-confidence.
