Crystals, Stones and Personal Growth
By themselves, crystals and stones do not make you a better person or a different person from what you are. But they do resonate with the subtle energy of your inner self, your attitudes or human qualities, to make them stronger and more intense, so it becomes more obvious to you what is going on inside. This makes it easier for you to see who you are and what you want to change about yourself in order to become a better person. But keep in mind that your attitudes don't change unless you want them to, and that you are the one responsible for any growth you do. A stone can only amplify an aspect of who you already are. To grow as a person you must do the work yourself.
Crystals and stones can be of really good help in personal growth, but keep in mind that they are not magic. What they do is give you an edge in growth because of how the vibrations of their crystalline structure interact with the inner self. Crystals and stones have the ability to resonate with the different energies of the inner self, thereby strengthening those energies. This additional strength gives you the internal boost your energies need to make it easier to take steps towards growth. It gives you the extra insight and determination you need to take the leap of faith that is necessary in adopting a new attitude. It also gives you the strength to not be afraid to change something about yourself. But in spite of all this, you must still do the actual learning and growing.
The magical qualities of crystals and stones lies in the effect they have on people. Because of how they work, crystals and stones have the ability to make someone feel more positive, feel better about life. Among other things, the way they interact with a person's inner self enhances the human qualities of loving and caring, which are often considered rather magical in themselves. Crystals and stones are really considered magical only because they enhance the magic that already exists in people's lives.
