Crystals can assist with healing, abundance, protection, releasing energy, balancing your chakras and energy field, dissolving stress, increasing intuition, aligning one with healthy communication, and connecting with one's guides and higher self are just a few of the benefits you can achieve through crystal usage.
Along with the request for crystals are questions. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about crystals as well as the corresponding answers to these questions.

- The use of a pendulum can help you make your decision.
- You may also close your eyes and select your crystal by leaving the choice up to spirit.

- How often do you need to clear my crystals?
- It depends, the crystal may feel flat, break or become lost if you do not clear your crystal. Use your common sense and intuition. If you are going through a difficult time or the crystal doesn't feel the same, it is time to clear.
Are other people allowed to hold your crystals?
- It really is a personal preference. I would probably not have someone use my crystal if I am using it for a personal intention. **Be sure to request permission before handling anyone else's crystal**
Can you gift them?
- Absolutely, and you may clear them and pass them on. When I select a crystal for another person, I ask my higher self for assistance. Usually I will "hear" the crystal volunteer to go a new home.
Crystals are not only beautiful to look at, they feel good in your hand and are also excellent for shifting energy, bringing in energy and releasing energy. They have been used for centuries here on Mamma Earth by ancient civilizations as well as recent civilizations as energy amplifiers, etheric and physical tools as well as for magical purposes. The thing I love most about crystals is that there are limitless uses as well as infinite crystals to choose from. I honestly can say that I have never met a crystal that I didn't like :)
