Crystals amplify and raise energy vibrations, whether this is for you, your space, your home or even your pets. They can make us more aware of our own energy as well as offering a helping hand to keep us present and in the moment. Perhaps in this manic digital age where distraction is everywhere, this is why crystals are having such a moment. They help support us when we are blocked, lacking in energy, feel slowed down or need calming.
There is evidence to suggest that crystals have been used in healing for around 6,000 years, dating back to Sumerians and ancient Egyptians. Nowadays the use of crystal healing relates more to the Buddhist and Hindu understanding of our ‘chakras’ (the energy centres in our body). Regardless, all of the different practices relating to crystal healing assign different properties to different types of crystals. The effect of each crystal changes not just with its type but also its shape and how it has been activated and cleansed.

Singh is an Indian term used as a title or name. The term is derived from the Sanskrit, sinha, meaning “lion,” and represents royalty, courage and divinity. Originally, it was used by Indian warriors and, in 1699, was taken up by the Sikhs and used as a name for all baptized men to ensure equality for everyone. Baptized female Sikhs use the term, kaur, meaning “princess.”
