Whether you've worked with crystals before or have a lot plans for the month ahead and want to try a new method of manifesting your goals, you'll want to ensure you have the right crystals.
Bustle talked to shamanic healer and energy medicine practitioner, Aisha Amarfio, who is also the author of CRYSTALS: A Guide to Using the Crystal Compass for Energy, Healing, and Reclaiming Your Power about the powers of crystals and which one will serve us most efficiently and progressively under the February new moon. "Crystals are energy conductors, and have a correcting effect on our energy field, according to our needs and the properties of the crystal. As conductors," Amarfio explains, "they transmit and transform energy, clearing us of blockages and aligning our energy to be more in harmony with our soul," basically, they help us get back in touch with ourselves, Amarfio believes. "When we are aligned with our soul, we can tune in to our intuitive wisdom and express our heart’s highest desires," she continues. Of this belief, Amarfio picked one stone that she finds to be the most useful and powerful for this particular new moon, here's what she says about it.
