Can crystals really improve my sex life?

Turns out diamonds aren’t the only rock that can be your best friend. These days, semi-precious stones aren’t just to shine pretty on your neck and ears, but believe it or not, they can improve your sex life.

How is it possible that a cold crystal can turn up the heat? More and more, people are turning to the power of crystals and gemstones, believing that our bodies actually correspond with the energy and vibration levels of crystals and mineral stones, which are said to possess natural energy fields and properties. That’s why some healers will tell you there are crystals for enhancing sexual energy if you’re not feeling it.

Researchers at the National Center for Biotechnology Information say gemstone therapy believers claim stones carry certain vibrations and channel good energy.

So that when the gem or stone is placed within a person’s “aura”, it can change the mental and physical outlook of the wearer. They add that chakra therapies involve “a gemstone being placed on major and minor chakra points of the body to restore balance and vitality to the human system.”

According to Dr. Andrew Weil, chakra is a Sanskrit term for vortices of energy that are believed to connect the physical and energetic body. While western medicine remains skeptical, the power of the mind over the body sometimes works pretty well.

Manganoan Calcite

If you’re in need of a little crystal therapy for a better sex life, the L.A.-based crystal healer Azalea Lee told The New York Times that she often uses this stone in her private crystal healing sessions.

Triangularly stacked, she says that the manganoan calcite from China helps people learn how to receive love.

“From those who have difficulty accepting compliments to singles who feel romantically marginalized, manganoan calcite works to dispel the false belief that others are more important and deserve more love than oneself,” says Lee.

Lee adds that the stone is perfect for mothers who give love and attention “but who may feel guilty letting themselves be taken care of.”

This crystal gently reminds you that sometimes, it’s all about YOU.
