Fatigue, low morale, lack of self-confidence… What if we opted for precious stones to take control of our emotional balance?

Good to know: in ancient civilizations, many rituals were based on the beneficial effects of precious stones… To fully understand the merits of stones, you need to know a little about “energy”.

The stones have a particular vibratory field which releases a certain form of energy and rebalances the body. Stones have various beneficial effects depending on their properties, which are related to their composition. So how do you choose the right stone for you? Well, there are two ways. Whether you have a specific problem (difficulty sleeping, irrational fears…) and you are looking for a stone to remedy it. Or you follow your intuition. Once you have chosen a stone, know that what it can reveal to you would be the comfort you really need.

In lithotherapy, crystals and stones are used to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Each type of crystal is believed to vibrate at a different frequency, which can help balance the energy centers of the body. The stones can be worn as jewelry (as a necklace or as a bracelet). You can also slip them inside your bag, in a pocket or even under your cushion. Or put them in the spotlight on your desk. Another possibility: you can hold them in your hand and use them as a meditation support.

If some people can easily buy these gemstones from local metaphysical store or online retailer. Others prefer to obtain them through more earthly methods, such as hiking, stone hunting, or gem mining.

They are usually sold in sets of different shapes and sizes and can be used for various purposes. Like meditation, energy work, or carrying in a pocket or purse.

If you do not have the opportunity to buy crushed stones, you can visit a natural stone store or attend an exhibition of precious stones and minerals. These events usually take place every year and offer a wide variety of rocks, minerals, and fossils to purchase. Finally, for those who live near areas where rock is exposed, hiking and rock hunting can be great ways to find crystals and rough stones. When searching for these gemstones in the wild, be sure to use only gentle methods, such as hand picking or raking, so as not to harm the environment.
