Crystals, gems and stones, have a long documented history of use in healing work in practically every culture and religious tradition since the dawn of time.
Are you wanting an energy boost, need assistance in grounding, or looking for a manifesting tool? Here is help in choosing the right healing crystal for your purpose. No gemstone has a singular purpose, multiple healing qualities are housed within a single stone. However, some stones have earned a reputation to be especially helpful in certain areas.
We can all use an energy boost from time to time. Choosing an energizing stone is a great way to help you get through the tough times. Energizer type healing crystals tend to be very powerful because of their higher vibrations so you may need to use them sparingly. But, they can be miracle workers when you are feeling fatigued or weakened. You could temper them a bit if wrapped in a gold setting. Also, you might want to keep these highly-charged gemstones away from your bedside so you can get a good night’s rest.
Opal and Topaz are both good crystals for an energy boost

Whatever you focus on most intently in your thoughts, whether good or bad, more of that comes into your life, which we call manifestation.
Citrine and Bloodstone are both good stones for manifestation
