In a previous blog post I wrote about the power of crystals and how they actually work. And while there are many crystals that help to move or transform energy in one way or another, there are a specific group known for their capacity to help with emotional balance and stability.
These crystals have energy that is very much like the energy of the astral and subtle body, which are layers of scientifically documented biomagnetic energy that enclose your physical body. These balancing and stabilizing crystals work within that energy and can have a positive effect on your emotional well being.
When thinking about Balance and Stability, we also need to include some crystals to help ground and build foundational layers that can be trusted and leaned into when things feel unstable. Grounding crystals are powerful sources of strength and stability that help you be present in the moment and protect you from any negativity.
