Not to be like the National Enquirer or anything, but ever since I did a popular blog post a while back on Robert Downey Jr.’s love of crystal healing, I’ve been keeping my eyes & ears open to any rumors of other well-known celebrities who are into it too.
Before we get to the celebs, I recently stumbled across this journalist’s article bashing the use of crystal healing among the celeb-folk. He seems to thing that turning to crystals is total bunk AND a complete dismissal of God or belief in any religion. I completely disagree, but I’ll save that argument for when I meet up with this dude. Just wanted to interject a differing point of view for a little healthy debate!
All right, let’s get to it. Here are a few…(with some hidden celeb gems in the links).
1. Kate Hudson
“I have a crystal my mom gave me for Christmas years ago and I take it everywhere with me. She’s really into energy and stones. It’s Rose Quartz, and heart-shaped and it represents love.” – according to ZenJewels.com…which of course set me off hunting for mommie, Goldie Hawn. YUP!!! Jackpot! (go ahead & click…you’re gonna die!!)
2. Victoria and David Beckham
Both have an interest in crystal healing. “We’ve both been into crystals since moving to LA,” said David. Victoria elaborated, ‘‘We both like crystals, as in crystal energy. I have lots of Pink Quartz and Black Tourmaline in my bathroom. It’s quite spiritual out here in Los Angeles, all very positive.” as quoted in ok.co.uk
3. Anne Hathaway
People.com reported that Ms. Hathaway shopped & purchased 2 special crystal pieces with a friend at the Crystalarium in West Hollywood on Melrose. Apparently, it’s quite the celeb hot spot.
4. Heidi Klum
Friend of the Beckhams, Ms. Klum reportedly gave David Beckham a special gem bracelet to help him heal up some injuries. – according to HelloMagazine.com. You can see a pic here of the bracelets he’s wearing.
5. Oprah Winfrey
Ms. Winfrey has confessed that her greatest indulgence is a crystal bath in this article, “Bathing is my hobby. I love creating bathing experiences—bath gels, bubbles, crystals, salts, lavender milks…”
6. Angelina Jolie
7. Shirley MacLaine
8. Princess Diana
9. Sheryl Crow
10. Lady Gaga
11. Katy Perry
Katy Perry was reported by Handbag.com as saying:
“I have rose quartz a crystal in my purse at all times, to make sure I attract the right kind of love.”
12. Buzz Aldrin
Bigger than any celebrity to me, astronaut Buzz Aldrin wears several skull bracelets for protection: clear quartz (to which he’s added red & blue stones to the eyes to show his patriotism), turquoise & the 3rd one of a matte black stone (not sure what it is). He’s always photographed wearing them & on a talk show he stated they were for good luck & to ward off evil spirits. You can see all his bracelets here.
13. Joan Jett
I was so excited to find out recently that one of my fav rockers, Joan Jett, has been into crystals for a long time. She was quoted as saying this in an online interview (and I really resonate with the part about working in conjunction with spirituality!!):
“Crystals are a gemstone, like a ruby or diamond, so to speak. But there are people, including me, that believe these stones can retain positive or negative thoughts. And there are many different kinds of these stones besides Quartz crystal. Amethyst, Obsidian, Tigers Eye, and Agate. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. But these stones work only in conjunction with spirituality. Not just Church on Sunday and Temple on Saturday, but from within. I suggest you get a book on the subject, because there’s a lot of them out there” quoted from interview on JoanJettBadRep.com
