When you are moving to a more mindful place in your life, there are few items that become more present.
Smoke cleaning using incense sticks, being kinder to yourself and others around, you, more aware of spiritual practices and crystals.
Crystals have been around for millions of years; they are part of the earth that we live on.
They have also been used for millions of years as adornments like rights, ear weights and necklaces, and in healing practices.
But if you don’t already use crystals, then how can you add them to your mindful practices.
Carefully choose your crystals.
Consider each crystal to have a range of properties that change how they work and what they will bring to your life.
With that in mind, you should choose crystals that make the most difference to your life in a positive way.

Choose crystals that have the properties you are looking for. Here are some of the most popular ones, and a bit about what they do:
