Many people find themselves highly interested in healing crystals and stones, but have no idea where to get started. If you are one of those people, please read this healing crystal guide for beginners so you can get started today!
There are many questions you may have when it comes to crystals. How do I use crystals? Can anyone heal with them? Which healing crystals should I get? Do they even work?
Yes, anyone can heal with crystals, and they most definitely will provide powerful healing in your life. Each crystal and stone has its own unique vibration, which resonates with the frequencies in your body. Crystals are powerful healers, and everyone who uses them has experienced positive changes in their lives.
How do I use healing crystals?
Healing your Chakras
The answer is actually pretty simple! The most common way to use healing crystals is by placing them on your chakras to heal specific ailments and improve certain areas of your life. While you are lying down, simply place a crystal or stone on one of the seven chakras, while concentrating on the crystal and the healing it will provide.

Wearing and Carrying Crystals
Another great way to heal with crystals is by wearing them in jewelry or carrying them with you daily. If you own genuine gemstone jewelry, pay attention to how you feel while wearing it as opposed to how you feel when you’re not wearing it. You may be surprised by the difference it actually makes in your daily life. Carrying small stones in your pocket or bra is also an excellent way to carry the benefits with you throughout the day. An important factor to remember is that certain crystals need cleansing to maintain their healing benefits, and each crystal should be cleansed when you first obtain it.
In the Home
Just having crystals in your home, on a shelf or table or anywhere you like, will provide tremendous benefits. Many that have discovered the powers of crystals use them for protection and healing by placing them all over their homes. Placing crystals in strategic areas around the home is called “gridding” and can provide protection from evil and negative energies.

Where can I find genuine healing crystals?
Healing crystals and stones can be found at local crystal shops. Sometimes, shops like those can be hard to find. Unfortunately, there is not a crystal shop in my area, so I purchase all of my crystals online. Luckily, there is a huge variety of crystals that can be found all over the internet. Be sure to look for words like “genuine” when purchasing crystals online.
Avoid words like “simulated”, and search the internet for where each crystal can be found. Many good sellers will tell you where a certain crystal or stone was obtained. For example, Shungite can only be found in Russia. Therefore, anyone selling Shungite online should state that their stones are from Russia.
Because there are so many crystals and stones for sale online, you can find just about any crystal you want for a fair price. My favorite place to buy online is Amazon.com. It may surprise you that they offer a huge variety of healing crystals and stones. The Crystal Shop also has an excellent selection of crystals.
Which healing crystals to buy
There are so many crystals out there, how do you know which ones to buy? First, you can use my search bar on the right to search for a specific ailment or an area of your life you would like to improve. For example, if you wish to improve your creativity, you can type “creativity” into the search bar and hit enter, and you will be shown a list of pages with crystals for creativity. Or, you can type intuition, migraines, protection, nightmares, arthritis or any other ailment you would like to find a crystal for.
You can also search for a specific type of crystal that interests you to learn more about it. Most of the pages you find will have links in them to the actual product you can purchase. If you are just starting out on your crystal journey, I have provided a list of a few stones that are excellent for beginners!
Lapis Lazuli is one of my favorite crystals for healing. It can provide so many benefits in your life, it is a must have for every crystal user. Lapis can be used to relieve anxiety, improve your memory, lower blood pressure, increase creativity, relieve pain and so much more! My favorite way to use Lapis Lazuli is by wearing it in jewelry. If you would like to check out a beautiful Lapis bracelet, click here. Another beautiful piece of jewelry I found is a Lapis Lazuli necklace, which can be found here.
Kyanite can be found in many colors (usually blue) and is the most powerful healing crystal for physical ailments. The best thing about Kyanite is that it can be used to align ALL of the chakras. It is also a great sleep stone and can be placed under your pillow to help with lucid dreaming. There are so many amazing uses and benefits of Kyanite that it is also a must have for every crystal user.
Known as the “success stone”, Citrine is also another favorite of mine. Citrine is said to bring good luck (Or what I believe to be the fostering of positive energies) and success in many areas. Also, this is a great stone for placing under the pillow to relieve nightmares. Citrine can even help with digestion problems and sexual issues. This happy crystal is one everyone should have and use. I own a natural Citrine pendant that I absolutely love and wear daily.
Amazonite is a highly versatile gemstone that can assist you in recognizing your own reality and integrity. With the freedom to express yourself without fear of being judged, Amazonite can help you discover your own truths and honesty. Wearing this stone will enable you to view an issue or problem from someone else’s perspective, allowing you to evaluate both sides objectively.
Last but not least, Rose Quartz is a crystal that should be in every home. This crystal is known as the “love stone” and emits the vibration of love. It is said to help with self-love, romantic love, friendships and familial relationships. I have found that by meditating with Rose Quartz, it really helps open up the heart chakra. This crystal can also be used to help relieve anxiety, grief and stress.

Removing Negative Energy
Many people also ask me how to remove negative energy from their stones. The first thing I recommend is to cleanse your crystals regularly. This can be done in many ways, but the most common way is to use running water. You can either put your stones under running water (make sure they won’t get damaged by the water pressure!) or you can hold them in your hand and let the water run over them. You can also cleanse your crystals using salt water, sunlight, moonlight or smudging with sage. After cleansing your stones, it is important to charge them regularly as well. This can be done by placing them in direct sunlight for a few hours or overnight. You can also use a crystal charger, which you can purchase here.
