What are Crystals?

Our crystals at Vibrate Higher are conduits of energy and each of them has a different energetic frequency that it meets. The interesting thing about gems is that both our bodies and crystals have energetic vibrations, this makes us naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they can align our own vibrations with theirs. Therefore, crystals and gemstones have a powerful vibratory effect when placed directly on your body. This energy surges from the crystal to you, which facilitates the free flow of energy throughout the body.

How to pick a crystal?

There are many ways to choosing a crystal or letting the crystal choose you, adding our crystal guide to help you follow along with the blog, lets briefly explore two ways we at Vibrate Higher use to choose crystals. 

  1. Properties of the crystal

Let’s say you have a specific need or purpose for a crystal, you can use books or websites which show and explain the metaphysical properties of crystals and how to use them. Our crystal guide is an example as well as a beginner’s guide to finding a crystal for you.  

  1. Use your intuition to find your crystal

This is going with your gut feeling or listening to what your soul feels drawn to. When you see crystals in a shop, in a book, or photos of them on our crystals page, certain crystals might catch your eye. We suggest you let that crystal go and keep looking, then come back to the same crystal to see how you feel the second time. If you are in a shop hold the crystal, do you want to keep it in your hand? This is a good sign. If you are online, see how the image makes you feel, do you feel a pull towards the crystal? Does it light you up inside? It’s always interesting to look up the properties of the crystal afterward and see how this fits your needs. We find this can be weirdly accurate!

Below is a guide of where to start if you don’t know which Crystal you want. So, make sure to keep an open mind and check out what each stone can do for you.

The first thing to ask yourself is what energy do you want to attract into your life?

Crystals promote the flow of good energy, healing, and self-reflection whilst helping rid the body and mind of negative energy for physical and emotional benefits. Historically speaking, crystals are said to be used as ancient forms of medicine, borrowed from Hinduism and Buddhism. The key to indulging in this self-care experience is mindfulness, reflection, and acceptance. We believe that a person’s mind has much more healing power than it’s given credit.

If you’re skeptical about the healing powers of crystals, then they most likely won’t do you any good neither will they harm you. An open mind, acceptance and clear intention are key to obtaining the positive qualities these beautiful stones can offer. Regardless of what you are looking for; good energy, abundance, health, wisdom, etc there’s nothing wrong with giving crystals a try. Maybe — you just might be surprised.
