Have you had a painful breakup in the past that you are still holding on to? Or perhaps you are still grieving over the demise of a loved one or a beloved pet?
If you are interested in letting go of all that 'baggage' and starting anew, the smoky quartz crystal is for you. Read on to learn some history behind these healing crystals and what are some of their health benefits.
History and the Making of Smoky Quartz
You probably had no idea that smoky quartz is the national gem of Scotland, as it was sacred to the Druids and involved in a variety of rituals, representing the dark power of Gods and Goddesses.
It was also worn as mourning jewelry (jewelry worn by people who had had a loss) in the 19th century, adorned for a customary period of one to two years.
It's found in a variety of places in the world, like Australia, Brazil, Madagascar, Scotland, and United States.
It is from the family of quartz healing crystals, but it has a distinctive smokey wispy brown color due to exposure to natural underground radiation from granite deposits.
That's why this stone has such extensive healing properties.
Using Smoky Quartz to Let Go Of Your Wounds and Move On
When you are holding on to too much historical data, be it in the form of emotions, feelings, or stories you tell yourself, it creates tension in your body, mind, and body.
It also creates a sort of heaviness in your aura that is hard to permeate.
These wounds or 'baggage' from the past take up so much space that nothing new can enter your world and realm, be it energetically or physically.
That's where smoky quartz comes in. These healing crystals allow you to recognize all those stale energies that you need to let go of. It also absorbs them all so you don't have to hold on to them anymore.
It's probably why the smoky quartz has this smoky darkish tint to it. It absorbs all the lower vibrations from you, leaving you free to explore your higher elevated consciousness.
With all that 'baggage' gone, you can connect to your higher self, to bright white light, to the celestial realms, and more. You can start feeling positive, hopeful, and filled with joy again. What a relief, you might think to yourself.
Smoky quartz is also a great stone for grounding and balancing, helping you stay calm, cool, and collected as you navigate difficult situations in your life.
Smoky Quartz Has Many Healing Properties
As you can see, smoky quartz is a stone of diverse healing capabilities. It isn't something you should take lightly. In fact, smoky quartz can be a tool in your extensive healing journey from here to beyond.
You can use your smoky quartz healing crystals in many ways - either by wearing it on your body, or carrying it in your purse, or placing it on your desk or in your bedroom.
