If you’re looking for help with bringing more of something into your life, like love, money or confidence, finding the right crystal can give your energy the boost and support it needs to help you manifest wonderful things and feelings into your life.
There are no hard and fast rules to using crystals and it is down to preference and personal comfort. Crystals can be immensely supportive and healing for you, but just like any spiritual practise, your intuition will guide you on the best practise for you. Here are some ways you can use your crystals to being with while you find your own way with them.
Wear them. Whether your wear a crystal pendent, bracelet or pop it in your bra or pocket, keeping your crystals with you within your auric field will help them attune to your personal energy field.
Hold them in your hand, close to your heart or against your forehead when you feel like you need a little extra support
Meditate with them or use them as part of your yoga routine to help keep you focused and positive.
Looking to attract an abundance of wealth into your life? Keep them in your purse or wallet.
Take a bath with them. Not all crystals can be placed in water so make sure you check for best practise, but placing them in the bathroom while you take a relaxing bat with candles and aromatic oils can help you relax and open your heart to the power and energy they possess.
Plants are known to raise the vibration of your space, so pop them in with your plants to boost the healing power of plant energy, just be careful not to get them wet if they are water sensitive.
Keep them next to your bed. Certain crystals can help with sleep and dream recall – such as chevron amethyst – so sleeping close to your crystals, whether they’re on your bedside table or inside your pillow case can help you get the best night rest.
Use them to decorate a space. If you have a room where you choose to relax and unwind, placing crystals in the space can help bring positive and cleansing energies into that space and help you feel calm, relaxed and comfort
When you buy or receive new crystals you need to cleanse them to clear their energetic fields. There are a few ways to do this and finding the right way for you will become clearer as you spend more time with your crystals, but here are the most common ways to cleanse.
Cleanse with crystals – Certain crystals can be used to help cleanse such as clear quartz and carnelian. Do your research on which stones can help cleanse new crystals.
Running water – if your crystals are water-friendly, then holding them under running water is a very effective method. If you live near a stream then cleanse them in the healing running waters. Ask the universe to remove negative energies from your crystals while holding within flowing water.
Full moon – Each month, place your crystals on the windowsill or outside in a clear, sealed glass jar to let the moons powerful lunar energy refresh your stones.
Use your own energy field – Visualisation and intention is a powerful tool! Hold your crystal in your hands, close your eyes and imagine a golden light surrounding them, clearing any negativity and replacing the energies with positivity and love. Ask the universe to help refresh and energise your crystals.
Once you receive new crystals, you can set your intentions for their purpose. To do this follow these instructions:
Sit in a quiet place where you feel comfortable
Remove your crystals from their bag and hold them in your hand
Take a deep cleansing breath
Remember, when asking the universe for anything you should focus on a need rather than a want. Focus on a goal and try not to be too specific or materialistic.
You can either tell your crystals what their purpose is or write it down on a piece of paper and keep it with your crystals until you feel that your intention is set.
Keeping your crystals with you and sleeping with them next to your bed will keep them in your auric field and help you keep your goals at the forefront of your mind.
Be thankful and always express your gratitude for your blessings.
