What is Crystal Healing?
Crystal healing is an ancient healing system used to naturally heal and improve one's wellbeing: mind, body + spirit. Crystals work with the human energy field to align, absorb, focus, direct + diffuse energy within the body through the crystal's vibrations.
How Does it Work?
Research has shown that everything in the Universe is made up of energy. Just like magnets use energy to attract or repel, healing stones + crystals use energy in a similar way. Certain stones correlate with certain energy fields in your body. When those stones are placed over certain parts of your body, your energy transforms, vibrates, shifts and pulses in accordance to that stone's particular metaphysical properties. One must open their heart + mind to the practice of crystal healing to experience the benefits. If you enter this practice with doubts and a closed mind, you will be stuck between a rock and a hard place. Literally.
Ways to Use Crystals
The uses and how to use healing crystals are endless. The beauty of crystal healing is that you choose what works best for you.
Adorning yourself in healing crystals in the morning is a perfect way to align your energy for the day. Since these stones + crystals have the ability to absorb, cleanse, transform and repel negative energy, wearing them will allow you to carry through the day with a balanced energy field. Wearing your crystal jewelry will also be a physical reminder to remain aware of your thoughts, but to allow them to pass without judgement. A reminder to be present in every moment. A reminder to trust in the power of the universe.
Meditating With Them
When meditating, you can hold or surround yourself with healing crystals. Allow yourself to clear your mind, focus on your breath, and raise your vibration to receive insights from your crystals.
Placing Them Under Your Pillow
Our subconscious minds often take over when we're fast asleep. Keeping a crystal nearby your bed or under your pillow can effect your dreams in a positive way, alleviating fear and worry.
How Will I Know Which Crystal Works For Me?
Since every crystal + stone has their own healing and metaphysical properties, it is important to tune in to your mind, body + spirit to find exactly what it is you need from crystal healing at that moment. Once you are aware of what areas you need healing, you can begin your research to find the stone which correlates with your needs.

Cleansing Your Crystals
It is very important to remember to cleanse your crystals after a healing session or a day of wearing your UBN piece(s). If your crystals are not cleansed, they will carry unwanted negative energy from days prior. Luckily, cleansing and aligning your crystals is simple.
Cleansing UBN gems
It is recommended to smudge (using the smoke from sage, dried herbs, palo santo, or incense) or placing your pieces under the light of a full moon (moon bath) to cleanse your jewelry. You can also place your pieces nearby or on a piece of Selenite which has the ability to cleanse and restore other crystals.
Cleansing Raw or Tumbled Stones + Crystals
You can use the above cleansing rituals as well as soaking your stones in purified water or salt water. **Selenite is not to be placed in water as it will dissolve**
Crystal healing is the ideal way to ground yourself to Mother Earth while raising your vibration. For further knowledge about stones + crystals, I HIGHLY recommend purchasing the Crystal Bible(s) by Judy Hall.
Love + light to you. xo
