I found this post really helpful in understanding the benefits of using an Agate crystal for grounding and balancing your life. It’s so easy to get caught up in the chaos of daily life and forget to take a step back and assess where our energy is going. My question would be, what are some tips for incorporating Agate crystals into your daily routine for maximum benefit? And, is there a specific type of Agate that is best for beginners to use? I’m excited to try this out and see if it helps bring some balance and peace into my life!
Hi Emoche, Agates are so plentiful and varied, it’s understandable that it’s hard to choose! When choosing where to begin, I suggest you let your intuition guide you. Search our website for “agate” and see which crystal catches your eye as you’re scrolling. Let the color of the stone draw you in, click the product and read the description. If it doesn’t sound like what you’re looking for, continue browsing. Adding crystals to your daily life is very easy. You can hold a crystal while you do your morning meditation, remind yourself of what the properties are of a crystal bracelet while you’re wearing it, put crystals on your dining table or work desk so that you see them often, the possibilities are endless! Keep reading articles in our Library for more information, but don’t overthink it. I’ll post a couple links below to get you started. Lastly, since you mentioned balance and peace, perhaps you might enjoy working with Blue Lace Agate, Botswana Agate, Lake Superior Agates, and Grape Agate.
I hope this helps!
