Crystals were once seen (maybe they still are) as a very alternate, hippy thing. They’re not being more widely recognised for their emotional and physical healing powers making then great for mums. It’s hard to know where to start so I’ve put together 7 Starter crystals for motherhood.
I didn’t remember it until just recently but when I was a child, I used to have a small crystal collection. The only piece in particular that I remember was a beautiful piece of amethyst.
Where we used to holiday every summer (and any weekend we could get away) there was a crystal shop in an alley on the way to the beach and my sister and I would also stop and peruse the crystals for no other reason than thinking they were pretty.
It’s only now (literally a few months ago) that I’m learning about the emotional and physical healing powers of crystals that I realise it probably helped me a lot when I was younger. Kids are so intuitive aren’t they?
I’m currently doing a small crystal healing course but in the meantime, I thought I’d get someone a little more experienced in for an ‘intro to crystals’ class.
As I said, I started with them just a few months ago. Literally, hours before we heard my grandma wasn’t well, I bought my first crystal and I believe they’ve helped me a lot through this sad time.
I wear them in jewellery, shove them in my pockets, sleep with them under my pillow and keep them around the house.
