We all love crystals but what do you actually DO with them, how do you use them, and how do you choose? These are some ways of using crystal power to enhance your life...
1) FIRST GET THE PERFECT MATCH
Generally a crystal that will be beneficial to you will feel right to you even though you may not be able to describe the sensations it creates. Sometimes a crystal may give off a regular pulse of energy; you may feel others as being very cold in your hand, or even warm.
2) CLEANSE YOUR CRYSTAL
Crystals can collect various forms of energy from emotions, thought, touch and many other sources. When other people handle your crystal, they leave their energy imprint on the crystal.
This isn’t “bad” however, in order to make your crystal truly yours, we suggest that you remove the stored vibration. This is known as clearing the crystal. Take your magical gem and imagine a golden light radiating and filling your item. Or simply give your crystal sunlight or moonlight for 8 hours. Use your own instincts as you develop the methods that work best for you.
3) PROGRAM YOUR CRYSTAL
Your thoughts, visualizations, and feelings have an energetic charge; when you program a crystal to assist you in manifesting your desires and dreams you put that energetic charge into your crystal. The key is to hold your crystal in a closed fist, close your eyes, and repeat your chants or affirmations. Alternatively, you can form a vision in your mind’s eye that creates an image of what you want to occur.
4) HARNESS THEIR ENERGY
A good way to acquaint yourself with stones is to lay down and place the stone somewhere on your body, like your third eye. Lay with it for a few minutes – you may feel a lot, you may feel nothing, but it will help you unconsciously pick up the stone’s subtle vibrations.
5) ASK IT QUESTIONS
You can use your crystal to seek answers from your subconscious mind. Hold your crystal from a chain and use it as a pendulum. Begin by asking “will this crystal be beneficial to me?”. The crystal will swing left/right for a NO answer and forwards/backwards for a YES answer. You can endlessly experiment with the questions you ask your crystal. Cool hey!
6) KEEP IT NEARBY
Even if all you do with your crystal is keep it near you, you will begin to notice subtle changes in yourself. Crystals amplify and balance even the most subtle mental energy. Just having crystals in your environment can improve the quality of your life.
7) BOOST WRITTEN AFFIRMATIONS
One of the most powerful methods of programming that we’ve discovered is to write your intention on a piece of paper and, after using the above method, place your crystal on the written note and leave it there.
8) MEDITATE WITH YOUR CRYSTAL
We have noticed that the quality of our meditations improved immeasurably when we started making crystals part of our meditation. Crystals help to focus our energy, and thus our thoughts. They raise our vibrations and energy level and help to turn our attention from everyday concerns to our greater purposes in being alive.
The simplest way to introduce crystals into your meditation is to hold clear quartz in one or both of your hands. To receive light and energy, hold the quartz with point facing you. To project your wishes into the universe (as when you’re repeating affirmations), face the points away from you.
9) PLACE YOUR CRYSTAL UNDER YOUR PILLOW
Keeping Crystals under the pillow whilst asleep has many advantages. Certain crystals can help with sleep problems like insomnia. They can ward off nightmares and psychic attacks. Other crystals have properties to aid in dream recall and some can assist in out of body experiences and astral travel.
10) WEAR YOUR CRYSTALS
One way to benefit from the properties of the crystals and stones is to wear them. Often people who have no conscious knowledge of crystal healing will intuitively select crystal jewellery with stones that will have a positive healing effect for them. Choose stones appropriate for the purpose you want but always use your intuition.
