A Beginner's Guide to Crystals | 10 to get you started

In a world of crystals, stones, energy and healing it can get a little confusing on where to start. I'm here to tell you it's not as intimidating as you think!

When you're starting to work with crystals always follow your intuition, it will never lead you astray. One of the main things I tell people is that you are drawn to what will serve you. It is your intuitions way of guiding you in the right direction. If you're reading this and thinking, "intuition?!" - go with the one you are most attracted to. 

If you're not feeling drawn to any particular crystal or stone, but really want to work with their beneficial energies here is a great list to get you started.
