Holistic Health Support and Healing are a signature part of the HHC, and ROTH was fortunate this year that one of the largest crystal shows in the US coincided with the course. Some of our students chose to do their presentation on several crystals that spoke to them on a spiritual level. Below is a list of the crystals and some of the more prominent aspects and healing properties associated with each.
Which crystals speak to you spiritually? Have you used crystals before on either horses or yourself? If so, which ones and what was your experience? Feel free to share your comments on our Facebook page that accompanies this post!
Keywords: Spiritual Connection and Meditation
A crystal of facilitating and strengthening consciousness. Apophyllite brings high energy to mystical and other endeavors. When placed on the third-eye chakra, it can help one see the truth for use in spiritual growth and connection.
