Crystal Healing

Crystal healing has been around for thousands of years, and are becoming increasingly popular in the last couple of years. Although some are skeptical, crystals have been claimed to bring positive energy and anything else your heart desires. 


We visited Simple Strands in Cumming, GA to get our crystals. At the door, we were greeted with gargoyles and the smell of burning incense. The store sells a variety of items including tarot cards, crystals, gargoyles, and incense. As a first time customer, the store was very welcoming and had positive energy. Abby bought a rose quartz crystal, which is said to bring self-love to the owner. She bought another stone that is said to bring positive energy to the owner’s life. She has seen the powers of the rose quartz in her life firsthand. Chaney bought jade to help with sleep and green onyx to help give a sense of confidence.


People may think that you need a different crystal for every attribute you are wanting to obtain. However, this is not the case, clear quartz is said to be used as a substitute for any other crystal you may need. 


Charging and cleansing crystals are very important. There are several ways to do this, you can charge your crystal by putting in the moonlight, the sunlight, or you can charge it on a pink Himalayan salt charging block.


Many may think that crystal shopping is expensive, but this is not the case. A crystal can cost less than a dollar, depending on what it does. The rose quartz that Abby purchased was five dollars, and it is able to be put on a chain to be worn in a necklace form or bracelet form. These crystals can apparently be used for years if properly taken care of and charged correctly. A one-time investment in a crystal is said to bring positive energy and love for years.


Even if you are skeptical, give these small gems a chance and see the power of them firsthand in your life. If you have any questions or stories, direct message the Lambert Post on Instagram to tell us about your experience!
