Healing Crystal Gemstones Explained
Just like everything else in the universe, we each have our own unique vibrational frequency. People with higher vibrations radiate kindness, love, peace, and compassion, whereas people with lower vibrations experience more low-vibe emotions like jealousy, anxiety, anger, or fear.
Whatever frequency you’re at, as a human, your vibration is very unstable and very easily influenced. It changes constantly as we’re exposed to other people, social media, the news, traffic, the weather, good news, bad news, our own memories, etc.
Crystals, on the other hand, have a super stable energy frequency that doesn’t change. Why? They’re made up of a fixed, regularly repeating, perfect geometric pattern of molecules. And they maintain their perfect stability with no effort. Exactly the opposite of our constantly changing, non-stable human nature.
So why does the stability of a crystal matter? Well, more stable energy = more powerful energy. And powerful energy can influence the energies around it. This is why crystals can so profoundly influence our unstable (less powerful) energy.
Holding crystals or placing them on your body is thought to promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Crystals supposedly do this by positively interacting with your body's energy field, or chakra. While some crystals are said to alleviate stress, others purportedly improve concentration or creativity. Even those in the medical community recognize that the use of gemstones have shown physical and emotional benefits to patients regardless of whether they believe in their powerful energy or choose to believe it is the placebo affect that does the job. Either way, it's a positive outcome. There are so many crystals and gemstones that are said to help the human mind, body and spirit. Here is a chart with many of those gemstones and their meanings.

Zodiac Crystal Gemstones and Monthly Birthstones
Depending on the date on which you were born you can find information on the appropriate gemstone for your Zodiac sign and the stone associated with the month in which you were born. Sometimes these are the same. Most people are at least mildly curious about the stone associated with their birth date but what many people do not realize is that the crystals themselves are much more than simply decorative materials for making jewellery and ornaments.
The following chart gives an indication of the different crystal gemstones associated with the zodiac signs as opposed to the monthly birthstones you may be familiar with.
Getting into crystals and overwhelmed by the number of choices? Choose a stone according to your zodiac sign to align your energy into your best self. Each crystal carries different healing properties that can help you manifest positive results in your life.
