Gemstones and Crystals
When first hearing about the healing abilities of crystals, often some of the first questions asked are, “Does it really work?” and “Can a crystal really heal me?” The answer to both of these is yes, but often we, as humans, need to have experiences with crystals ourselves to fully believe and understand them.
It can be challenging to believe and fully comprehend things that not all people are able to see or feel, like the energy of crystals.
This seemingly complex process of how crystals work can be easily explained in three sentences:
1, Anything that you focus on or put your energy into expands.
2, Energy follows intentions and thought.
3, Crystals amplify intentions.
