Love 101
For centuries, both women and men have used gemstones and crystals to attract their love partners.  However, when our love needs are  not being met, our expectations about life are left in an uncomfortable spiritual position.  We begin to doubt, rather than be in wonderment with the process of relating to another person. Crystals have magic properties that break through personal barriers to love and help to attune oneself to a higher Love vibration. The easiest way to get crystal energy is to wear the crystal as a pendant near your Heart, for at least 21 days for the energy to work. The vibrations of the crystals will continue to affect areas of  imbalance, restoring a positive state. The effects of crystal healing at the emotional and psychological levels are  subtle, yet are often noticed more by others than by yourself! As your personal vibration changes to a higher, more positive outlook, you will attract your Soul Mate to you, like a magnet !

If you need to patch up your life to move on with a new relationship, or to help heal the one you have, read the following descriptions and select the crystal that best fits your situation. If you exchange crystals with a friend, you will be forever connected to each other ! I have listed  twelve crystals and gemstones below that are useful in healing relationship issues.  Also see my article Three Steps to Crystal Healing that will tell you more about what to expect from crystal healing.
