Crystals, used with and without meditation, are a good way to help reduce stress, rid yourself of anxiety and help you relax. Crystals have long been used for their healing properties. Each crystal has a unique set of properties, all tuned to that crystal’s vibrations. Different crystals have different vibrations and so they all have different properties, all of which are beneficial to you.
When it comes to how to use crystals, you will find that you can use them virtually anywhere. Some people prefer to wear them as jewelry, while others like to carry them in their pockets, wallet or purses. You can keep one in your car, or place them around your home and office. For relaxation, placing them around your desk is best and for the home, near or around your bed, to help you de-stress and sleep better at night.
For an extra boost, use them while meditating. Meditation is already a great way to shed your stress and anxiety. Holding a crystal while doing so will have double the benefit.
