Crystals and tarot cards have been around for generations. Some people like to use them as a helpful guide to life! If you are one of those people, it may be a promising idea to follow some of the pointers in this article. 

Many people believe crystals have healing energy, and while we don’t have that much scientific proof to back it up many people report that they feel as though crystals have enriched their lives in many ways.  

What are some of the things you can use crystals for? Some people like to put them out as a display in their homes. This is a useful way to decorate and fill your home with positive energy. While others like to hold crystals in their hands. This helps some deal with stress. If you are someone who has habits of biting your nails, cracking your knuckles or just being restless in general you might want to explore holding a crystal in your hands. Crystals have all different kinds of texture so you will have the chance to pick the crystal with texture to your likings!  

You might think: What kinds of energies do crystals give off? People can feel a wide range of emotions from all different types of crystals. Some of the basic things you can feel are love, motivation and relaxation. The most commonly known crystal for love is Rose Quartz. One of the most commonly known crystals for relaxation is Amethyst.  

A common belief is that crystals can also help your fate. For example, some crystals are known to help you find the right person and some others are known to brighten your future. Again, this does not have a lot of scientific evidence to back it up but for some it is a comforting thought to think they can use crystals to change their lives.  

Tarot cards- They can be used to be symbolic for our lives. An activity you can do with tarot cards is pull one out in the morning and get an understanding of what you think is happening in the card (hint: there are no right or wrong answers). Some cards will have pictures of different patterns and characters on them. After you complete your day go back and look at the card. What similar thing happened in your day that emulates what is going on in the card. Most of the time, you will find something similar from the card and your day.  

Tarot cards help us reflect on our day and life in general. They may also help us with our destiny!
