The use of crystals for meditation, manifestation and other rituals has recently seen an uptick in popularity among a younger population. 

Crystals are used in a set-up with other materials like incense sticks and/or tarot cards. Users light the incense to cleanse the crystals and use the crystals to meditate and manifest balance and stability in their lives. The seven chakras consist of the crown chakra, third eye chakra, throat chakra, heart chakra, solar plexus chakra, sacral chakra and root chakra. These are all linked to different aspects of mental and physical well-being. Having balanced chakras means having a good attitude about life. The consumer may obey a guide or do meditation or manifestation practices on their own to maintain balanced chakras for different parts of the mind, soul and body, every way.

Stability between physical and mental health obtains relevancy because end-of-the-year exams are ensuing, and many students feel under pressure. So where do individuals discover crystals that satisfy their needs?

Silver Eagle is my favorite place [to find crystals],” freshman Sophie Scherer said. “I look for helpful properties that apply to me.”

Crystals can hold specific properties. Different shops around Naples supply a variety of crystals with a diversity of assets appointed to each type of crystal.

“Many crystals are designed and can be used in day-to-day life,” freshman Delainey Beams said. “They can be used in day-to-day life for things like balance, stress and blocking negative energy.” 

Stores provide multiple resources to customers like readings and meditation areas. These places seem to attract beginners who are seeking a welcoming environment. 

Goddess I AM is super fun,” Beams said. “They have clothes, a meditation room, a temple and even readings.”

There are many reasons for everyone, and students particularly, to become captivated by crystals. They grant a sort of guidance that people in your daily routine don’t always contribute to.

“I turned to crystals because they really helped me block bad energy and feel good,” Scherer said. “It is a fun hobby that I can benefit from.”
