Now without further ado, lets jump in!
What exactly are crystals? Crystals are different from just any old rock – they are made up of of a repeated pattern of molecules that come together to emit a frequency. These frequencies are what are known to have healing properties and can be activated by simply holding them. Not only are they pretty – but they can promote spiritual, physical and emotional healing.

There are several different kinds of crystals but I will just introduce a few of my favourites.

Do Crystals Work?
Quartz is used in almost every kind of technology through emitting a vibrational energy – and humans reap the benefits in a similar way. A study conducted by scientist Marcel Vogel showed that crystals changed their shape based on our thought patterns and what we thought about. In addition, Albert Einstein even said that everything in life has a vibration. What this means is that our thoughts, crystals, and actions all have a vibration that attracts a similar energy to itself. For example, when you are having a great morning your entire day tends to go that way. This is because you are emitting a positive frequency vibration, and as a result the universe responds happily to that. In contrast, when you are having a bad morning and you spill coffee on yourself your whole day ends up being off. Therefore, every crystal has different properties and by selecting the right one you too can experience the healing benefits from these energies. In all, however, the best way to find out if crystals work is to test them for yourself! Go check out Prana water bottles, select a bottle that resonates with you and your needs, and see the results. Thank you for supporting a local business, and I will see you next week on Anishinaababe!
