We have been captivated by crystals for centuries, revered not only for their aesthetic beauty but also for their metaphysical properties. I have used them in my spiritual journey for many years and I am often asked what do I do with them? In this blog post, we will delve into the fascinating world of crystals, exploring the science and mystique behind how crystals work and providing practical insights into incorporating them into your daily life.
Before we begin, whenever you are working with crystals always set an intention, hold the crystal to your heart and connect to it's energy. Then ask the spirit of the crystal to work with you to help you create (whatever you are wanting to create) and then use the crystals in the ways suggested below.
How Crystals Work:
Crystals vibrate at specific frequencies due to their molecular structure.
When in contact with a person, these vibrations may influence and harmonize with the individual's energy.
The Piezoelectric Effect:
Certain crystals, like quartz, exhibit the piezoelectric effect.
When pressure is applied, these crystals generate an electrical charge, often used in technology but also thought to impact energy fields.
Crystals are believed to amplify and store energy.
This property can be harnessed for intention setting and focusing positive energy.
Crystals are often associated with the body's energy centers or chakras.
Selecting crystals that correspond to specific chakras is thought to balance and align our energy flow.
Practical Tips for Crystal Use:
Cleansing and Charging:
Regularly cleanse crystals to remove accumulated energies. Methods include smudging with sage, placing them in moonlight or sunlight, or using other clearing techniques. I always cleanse my crystal by putting them in my singing bowl and then strike the side of the bowl with the stick and use the stick around the outside edges to keep the rising going, when I sense a change in energy I stop and I know the crystals are cleansed.
Charge crystals with your intentions by focusing your thoughts and energy on them as described above.
Choosing Crystals Intuitively:
Allow your intuition to guide you when selecting crystals, go for the ones that grab you, the one that stands out. they say the crystal always chooses you!
Pay attention to the crystals that draw you in or resonate with you personally.
Meditation and Visualization:
Incorporate crystals into meditation practices.
Hold or place crystals nearby, visualizing their energy merging with yours.
Jewelry and Wearable Crystals:
Wear crystal jewelry to carry the energy throughout the day.
Choose crystals that align with your intentions or areas of focus.
Put your chosen crystals in your pocket and carry them with you during the day
Create geometric arrangements of crystals for specific intentions.
The combination of crystals in a grid is believed to amplify the collective energy.
Position crystals strategically in your home or workspace.
Consider the energy flow and purpose of each crystal placement.
There are so many ways for you to work with the energy of crystals, from carrying them in your pocket, placing them around you during meditation or placing them on your chakras. I hope that this blog has given you some idea on how to work with your crystals and what you do with them after you purchase them.
