Our lives have changed drastically over the past few weeks, but that doesn’t mean we can’t come out stronger as individuals and as a society. People are sad, lonely, angry, confused and afraid– I don’t blame them. But, we can’t let negative emotions consume us. It’s crucial that we search for light in every corner. I feel it’s important to tap into spirituality to ease the mind, especially with all the fear circling the world, and crystals can help achieve that. Believe it or not, crystals contain energy and emit vibrational frequencies just like we do! So, in an attempt to help ease the anxiety from the overwhelming uncertainty around us, here’s a list of some crystals that can bring comfort and light to these dark times.
