Radical spirits, there is no better time than now to use your arsenal of healing crystals to strengthen your auric field. What with all the toxic, fear-based news and politics, it’s crucial that you strengthen and protect your heart.

Crystals are very much alive and hold countless years of earth wisdom. By working with them consciously, you can gain a trusted spiritual teacher and greater spiritual awareness.

When selecting healing crystals, be sure to “tune in” to the energy of them first, and see if they are calling you. Usually, the ones you’re attracted to first are the ones that most want to work with you. It truly is best to approach this intuitively rather than on a mental level.

If you don’t have any healing crystals, well aren’t you in for a treat?! Here’s a list of some of the most powerful healing crystals for all of your energetic and spiritual needs.

01  Clear Quartz

Clear quartz is the OG of crystals. While other crystals have more specific purposes and meanings, crystal quartz is like a blank slate on which you can project any intention you want onto it. It’s a perfect starting point to pair it with any other crystal as it acts as an amplifier of energy. Need more love? Pair it with a rose quartz. Need to clear some negative energy and raise your vibration? Pair it with obsidian or hematite. Need universal support to attract abundance and career opportunities? Hello citrine and aventurine!

02  Shungite

There are claims around the spiritual spheres that shungite is a “miracle crystal.” While I don’t think that there is such a thing as a magic bullet, shungite has some pretty compelling properties that you won’t find anywhere else.

Numerous studies show the medicinal and healing benefits of placing shungite in water, like this one and this one. Studies by the International Journal of Advanced Scientific and Technical Research show that shungite, “removes free radicals out of water 30 times more effectively than activated carbon.”

If you’re doing deep shadow work, shungite will be your very best friend. It assists in transmuting and purifying anything that isn’t in direct alignment with your divine nature. This is great if you’re wanting to clear the old energetic residue stuck in your subconscious that might be wreaking havoc in your daily life. Be gone inner demons!

As Stacie’s Metaphysical Corner says, “Shungite ain’t for sissies!”

03  Obsidian

Obsidian is my personal choice for protection and grounding purposes. It works through the root chakra to “root” you to the earth and strengthen your position in life. It’s also fantastic for clearing negative energy and protecting you from psychic vampires and psychic attacks. For those who are highly sensitive, this is an excellent choice because it not only protects your aura psychically, but it also protects your field from electromagnetic waves in the atmosphere. This is also a fantastic accompaniment when doing past life work.

04  Kunzite

I’m a big fan of kunzite and have used different colors of them with great results. It’s wonderful at balancing thoughts and emotions. It eases stress, anxiety and the burdens of daily life. If you’ve been at your wit’s end lately, wear a kunzite crystal with you for a few days for emotional support. Kunzite comes in several different colors which brings an additional healing quality to it. For example, pink kunzite is fantastic for love of self and others. I especially recommend to those who suffer from low self-esteem. While black kunzite has protection and grounding qualities to it, and blue kunzite helps to open the third eye.

Aren’t they a beauty?!

05  Herkimer Diamond

When you want to stay above the fray and detach from drama, the herkimer diamond can do the trick. It carries an exceptionally high frequency that allows the user to reach higher spiritual realms. As a result, it’s conducive for having psychic visions, receiving messages in dreams, and having out-of-body experiences. When selecting a herkimer diamond, try to find the clearest one possible as they carry the highest vibration.

06  Amethyst

Amethyst is one of the very first crystals I ever worked with. It’s a superb stone to open your third eye and connect with your spiritual guides. You can place one under your pillow to activate dreams with healing messages. If your dreams become too active and your not getting restful sleep, take them out and place them on your nightstand or in another part of the room. I also like using an amethyst during meditation and to connect with my spirit guides.

07  Ruby

All crystals assist the soul in different ways, including the gorgeous ruby. But, what makes the ruby stand out, is that it helps one become more masterful as a human on earth. If you’re lacking vitality, passion or sensuality in life, the ruby should be your go-to friend. When life feels too damn relentless, connect with the ruby. She is a masterful teacher when it comes to healing physical and emotional trauma from the past. Also, if you’ve been missing your mojo in bed, wear the ruby to stoke your fires. It’s been known to invigorate sexuality.
