There are many things in life I choose to remain firm about, and that includes putting my family on top of my life's priorities, the fact that Sara Bareilles is one of the best singer-songwriters of our time, and that bacon, while good, is overrated. But I've come to learn in the past couple of years that there are benefits to opening up yourself to people, opportunities and even beliefs. So, when we explored the idea of doing the Wellness Watch series, where we try out different wellness fads, I threw (some of) my scepticism out the window and opened myself up to the possibility that alternative ways of healing, particularly one where crystals are involved, can positively affect my well-being.
What is crystal healing?
Crystals are said to have energy properties that can affect the energy you possess. The catch? There's no scientific proof regarding that claim, but there are lots of anecdotal proof from people who practice crystal healing that it does help relieve mental, emotional and physical discomforts.
While I usually scoff at things like this, I can't deny that the idea of a calmer mind and even a lighter physical feeling is enticing. Of course, if I do have any serious health symptoms, I'll definitely seek professional advice and not whisper to stones and ask for healing.
