Angela attempted to explain how crystals and birthstones work by stating that every substance vibrates at its own set frequency, as science makes apparent. She, therefore, believes that wearing birthstones and crystals can help change your vibration to make it slightly easier to receive healing properties.
The healer also spoke about the benefits she receives from amethyst, which relieves her headaches in no time. Apart from that, she mentions that if you’re trying to stay motivated on your weight loss journey, you should get peridot.
