How to Use These Crystals for Weight Loss
Place your crystals around your environment. One of the easiest ways to harness the power of your crystals for weight loss is to place them in strategic areas like the kitchen, dining area, office or even your bedroom if you often get tempted to sneak midnight snacks into your room. There are geodes, figurines tumbled stones, or clusters of these crystals that you can use to decorate your space with to allow their energetic vibrations to permeate the space.
Another way is to carry them as tumbled stones in your purse or pocket. This lets you harness their energies all throughout the day and keep you in mind state conducive for weight loss. Or, make a statement and wear them as jewelry in the form of bracelets, necklaces and rings.
Of course, meditation with the crystals that resonate with you most is also one of the best ways to harness their energy. In choosing your crystals for weight loss, allow your intuition to guide you. The ones that attract you most are often the ones your body needs.
Lastly, when you begin dieting, you’re going to need more water. Cravings are sometimes your body’s way of signaling for water. Instead of drinking plain H20, why not drink a crystal-infused drink? Rose Quartz and White Quartz are best for making crystal elixirs for weight loss. Hold your crystals in your hands and focus on your intention. After ensuring that your crystals are clean, place them in a container with your water and leave them under the sun for 2-4 hours to let the water soak up its energy. After that, enjoy your drink!
I hope these help you in your fitness journey! Love and light!
