Creativity is the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, and patterns to create your own unique interpretation of the world around you.
We are all naturally creative to some extent—whether we show it through our clothing, hairstyle, or writing. Using crystals is a great way to turn this inherent creativity up a notch. Creativity starts from within our dreams and desires—and healing stones help us hone in on these visions and turn them into reality.
Simply keep these stones in sight the next time you're creating, holding them in your hands from time to time and visualizing what you want to come out of your creative endeavor. When dealing with natural components from the earth, it is helpful to use all of our senses to really get in tune with them. So relax, light a candle, listen to your thoughts, feel the stones, and take the time to infuse them with your creative intentions.
