Crystals make pretty home decor and jewelry, but some people believe their value can go beyond the aesthetic. While there isn’t strong scientific evidence to back up their healing “powers,” crystals have been used in the holistic and alternative medicine communities for many centuries. It is said they have energies that can help balance the body’s energy field. Shanique Worthey, CEO of I’m S.H.E. (Soul Healing Energy) in Ansley Park, is a reiki healer and oracle reader who offers both in-studio and mobile services, and often works with crystals in her practice to enhance her clients’ energy and remove blockages.

“Set an intention for what you want to improve and use the associated crystal to help manifest it,” Worthey says.

Curious if they’ll work for you? The best way to use crystals, Worthey advises, is to keep them on you, such as in your hand, pocket or piece of jewelry. Use them as a tool during meditation, place them on you during a nap or bring them to everything from interviews to difficult conversations with loved ones. You can also put them on a bedside table to improve sleep or in an office space to enhance creativity or focus.

But which one to choose? Worthey offers the following examples based on the seven chakras, or energy centers in the body.
