Stones and Crystals Healing Properties

Many people throughout history have used gem stones and crystals for their healing properties.  Some people go by the color of the stone rather than it’s type, while others go by the type of stone rather than just color.  Here is a short list of stones that you could use to get started with using crystals and stones.

I’ve linked each stone name to the Wiki Article detailing it’s make up and scientific facts.  Below the list there are some links that I’ve found to be useful as well.

Please note that although I’m giving this information about stones I’m NOT telling anyone to stop seeking medical treatment or care for conditions.  This is only information and how you use it is on you.

  3. Keeping a cool head and being able to think logically without the fear of nervousness goes a long way. Each person will have their own life coach who will have in-depth knowledge on their personal and work life. They will also have the deepest insight into their fears and goals enabling them to devise a formula that will eliminate all the problems their students may have.

  4. Originally, life coaches were people who had some kind of previous work experience before going into coaching. Most Executive Coaches came out of the corporate business world and as an Executive Coach or Leadership Coach, were able to make great incomes. Many of these past Executive Coaches also have become Client Attraction or Marketing Coaches in today's climate and their services are provided to corporations still but mostly to small or solo businesses or individuals.
