Navigating the world of clean & pure green beauty can be incredibly overwhelming to the novice or veteran. That world is expanding daily (thankfully) and who better to lead you down the perfect path than my absolute go to clean beauty pro Britanie Faith, curator of Beauty By Britanie. Her wisdom is deep, well-tested, with health as her number one focus.

Today she guides you through another one of my absolute favorite and long loved daily energetic sources, crystals and gemstones. Here is Britanie’s incredibly clear guide to leaning into what life sends you by using the support of these ancient healers. 

Harnessing the Healing Benefits of Crystals & Gemstones for Manifesting Personal Intentions

B Choosing the right combination of crystals & gemstones to hold, carry, or wear, can positively assist you by turning your intentions into reality. It’s not just your personal positive affirmations directed to the gems that make them so effective. The belief and subsequent science that crystals & gemstones contain healing and therapeutic properties is ancient. Over 5,000 years ago in Ayurvedic Medicine, gems, minerals and herbs were incorporated into specific healing protocols. Roman soldiers even wore Citrine on their chest plates with the belief that it was protective for them in battle. It’s been said that Cleopatra carried a piece of Chrysocolla believing the gemstone would make her more sensitive and tolerant towards others.

Crystals & Gemstones are a treasured gift from the earth. Mother Nature has provided assistance to enhance healing, compassion, joy, love, stress relief & wisdom.  Allow the frequency and pure energy patterns of these organic gifts bring you back into harmony and help you with your resolutions.

Meditate with and use your intuition for choosing specific stones to attach to your intentions. Carry and or wear your crystals & gemstones. If you prefer, you can purchase intentional jewelry created with specific stones to aid in your journey. At night place under your pillow or on your bedside table to immerse yourself in the healing properties of these gems. You cannot make a wrong choice. Have fun with this and think of it as creative manifesting. Notice how you feel when you wear a particular piece. Don’t forget to cleanse your crystals by running water over them or leave them in pure sunshine for a few hours.

Crystals are an integral part of my life. I hold them in my hands, meditate with specific ones placed on my seven Chakras. I wear them in necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, carry them in my pockets and occasionally put one in my bra to be close to my heart. I even use them in my skincare routine (will touch more on that soon!).

Remember that when a crystal is touching you, you’re getting pure raw healing energy helping to align to your innermost intentions. I buy my crystals from a trusted local store to be sure of the authenticity of the stones and to always shop and support local business.

Here are some of my favorites that I attach positive intentions to when I'm looking to manifest the following:

Detox: Apatite (power to achieve goals, suppress hunger). Rose Quartz (helps with self love). Danburite (brings about change).

Organize Space: Vanadinite (assists with clear thinking and helps create powerful action). Unakite (releases things that inhibit growth). Peridot (promotes patience, confidence & assertiveness).

Spend Less: Tiger Eye (for self discipline). Onyx (stabilizing & stimulates the power of wise decision making). Red Jasper (remain centered, feel stable emotionally). 

Enjoy Life to the Fullest: Cavansite (releases pleasurable endorphins). Chrysocolla (balances the emotions and brings peace to the heart & mind). Watermelon Tourmaline (enhances emotional healing & promotes feelings of joy).

Increase Health & Wellness: Garnet (manifest dreams, confidence, action and helps move past blocks). Pearl (enhances integrity, helps with personal focus). Aquamarine (enhances intellectual capabilities).

Ease Anxiety & Worry: Amethyst (inner peace and healing, healing of body, mind & soul, positive transformation, balance, relieves stress), Lepidolite (calm, trust, acceptance. strong relaxing, balancing and calming effect), Citrine (activates imagination, removes negative energy and thoughts, attracts abundance).

Remember that authentic healing is a recovering from “dis-ease” and a returning to our natural source. So let go of limiting ideas and practices that no longer serve you. I find that by holding, wearing and loving crystals the journey gets a bit easier. These treasures from the earth assist me in my quest for increased health, love, staying focused, and enjoying each moment. I open my heart to be receptive to their pure energy. Healing always occurs from the inside~out. Begin by choosing the stones that resonate with your intuition. Then align your intentions, reinforce with affirmations, and accept the natural power of these organic gifts that are available to you. Then give thanks to Mother Nature for her pure generosity.
