For as long as I can remember I have been a collector of rocks, and crystals. And, over the years I have gained more of an understanding of their healing and spiritual qualities. Each crystal has a different energy and implication. It can be a little overwhelming when learning about crystals, and finding out what crystal is best for your needs. I wanted to share my top three healing crystals, and introduce the healing powers that they posses to help you start your own crystal collection.
Clear Quartz attracts life force from the unlimited source of life at the core of your being and brings it into the physical world. As this life force flows through you, it nourishes and balances your mind, emotions, and physical body and corrects color ray imbalances within them. Because this stream of vital energy touches every facet of your being, all aspects of your life improve. The life energy Quartz draws through your body and into the atmosphere also provides vital spiritual nourishment for the Earth. [click link for source]

To start your collection I would suggest starting with the clear quartz. It has a variety of uses so you can use it for any area of personal healing. It is also great for clearing the energy at your home, or office. Clear quartz can also be used to charge other crystals. Later I will talk about uses/placements of crystals around your home and how to care for your crystals to get the greatest healing benefits from them. Until then, head to your nearest mineral store and get your crystal collection started. When picking a crystal pick it up and see if the energy feels right. I really believe crystals speak to different peoples’ energies. Once you get your crystal home give it a good bath water. Your crystal is now ready to energize and start the healing process.
