Welcome Mindfulness Into Your Life!
A large number of us now understand what it means to be mindful. Many of us benefit from practicing mindfulness and meditation every day. Therefore, it makes sense that now the need is for our calm and peace to remain. To be able to stay worry-free at any time of the day.
We are now able to recognise and understand when our states have been altered by our emotions. As a result we want to have the tools to be able to remain calm throughout the day.
To regain control when we encounter difficult situations or our minds are flooded with negative thoughts. To be able to help ourselves, when we feel most at risk of an angry outburst, an onset of depression or the early warnings of a panic attack.
Those are the times that we want to reach for the reassuring touch of our healing crystals and be reminded that we are more than enough to make it through.
That is the reason why the use of healing crystals is growing so quickly.
Their history and organic composition reminds us too, of the insignificance of a moment time. That nature orchestrates the fleeting quality of events – of the certainty that this too shall pass.
What Are Healing Crystals?
Let’s take a look at what healing crystals are.
Formed over thousands of years, deep in the earth, the use of healing crystals by humans, can be traced all the way back to the beginnings of man. According to crystalage.com healing crystals were first used in jewellery: beads carved of mammoth ivory were found in Sungir, Russia that date
back to 60,000 years. Additionally, amulets made from Baltic amber have been found from ‘30,000 years ago’. 2 Fast forward thousands of years and the great ancient civilisations, from the Ancient Greeks to the Ancient Egyptians, used healing crystals to aid the body and support spiritual practices.
In the last twenty years, healing crystals have been used as a focus tool to aid mindfulness. Known to instill a sense of calm, crystals are widely used in conjunction with meditation.
