In a world that often feels chaotic, medicalised and overwhelming, we may find ourselves seeking balance and answers within holistic approaches to healing. When we begin this journey of discovery we often experience our first encounter of crystals ‘by chance’ for example, finding ourselves wondering into a little holistic shop somewhere and being drawn to a certain crystal. While the scientific evidence supporting the healing benefits of crystals may be limited (because lets face it, universities and scientists around the world are not particularly jumping at the thought of pouring their funds into researching our little rocky bundles of happiness) the profound experiences and testimonials of those I work with cannot be denied. In this post, I want to reveal the captivating world of crystal healing and delve into some of the ways in which crystals are believed to offer healing benefits to support your MBFI healing journey.

A loving reminder:
Although crystals are often associated with specific healing properties, I believe that intuitively we know what crystal is best for us in the moment. I would encourage you to explore your own intuitive connection and discover what different crystals mean for you. Throw the rule book out the window and listen to your own body. Trust that voice within your mind and the nudge in your stomach to follow and carve out your own path and relationship with mother nature’s beautiful gifts to you!
Crystals offer a holistic wellbeing approach to overall wellness but cannot and should not replace sound medical advice and or treatment. Please do talk with your GP if you have any concerns about your wellbeing.
