Crystals for Empaths
As an Empath, crystals help us to remain grounded, shielded and soothed. Since we are so in-tune and sensitive to the energies that surround us, crystals make an excellent addition to our "energetic empowerment" regimen!
You can carry a crystal in your pocket, or wear crystal jewelry to benefit from these little gems! Each stone carries with it, different energy signatures and have been said to hold many beneficial metaphysical properties.
