Healing crystals can be a wonderful tool for meditation, as we can use them to amplify the power and meaning of your intentions and mantras. Of course, each crystal has its own energy and healing properties that can help us bring in the good vibes we all need in your life. Some stones can also help us to connect with our Crown chakra and reach higher levels of consciousness, connect deeper with spirituality, but also they can allow us to heal from unwanted negative energy.

It's very easy, just go with the flow, look at the different colors, shapes and patterns and see what you are being drawn to.
