Everyone is crystal curious these days and these beautiful energetic tools are just waiting to be used. In such a chaotic world crystal energy can be just the added bonus people are looking for in their lives.
Everything is vibration and everything is energy. Our energy is very light and loves to do this dance with our mind. Where our mind goes our energy follows and vice versa, however crystal and stone energy keeps its own consistent vibration lending itself to be the perfect tool in balancing our energetic fluctuations. When working with crystals we are looking to achieve something called entrainment. It’s when two like energies, rhythms or vibrations brought near each other synchronize with one another. Since stones and crystals don’t have a mind of their own their vibration always stays true.
Here are some ways to work with crystal energy.
Wearing crystals and stones as jewelry.
Crystal energy is most affective when touching the skin. This makes jewelry a wonderful crystal energy tool. You can wear it as a bracelet or a pendant. Another funny and convenient way to have crystals near is to keep them in your bra - for the femmes out there. Otherwise, having them in your pocket can also be helpful and easily held when needed.
During your meditation or yoga nidra practice.
Using crystals during your meditation or yoga nidra practice is a great way to enhance the energy and intention of your practice. While seated in meditation you can hold crystals in the palms of your hands or even place them on the floor in front of you. If you are lying down for yoga nidra you may choose to place crystals on your body or on the floor around you.
Placing them in your home.
Crystals and stones are wonderful to have in the home not only as home decor but for energetic purposes. There are a few different ways to use crystals in your home according to Feng Shui. Here is a great article about how to use your crystals in the home and office. My personal favorite is to have a citrine point in the northeast corner of my home to promote abundance. Another one I love to use is a combination of amethyst and rose quartz in my kids room to help keep away nightmares.
If you are just starting on your crystal journey the crystal I always recommend starting with is Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is a universal stone of love, compassion, empathy and friendship. In the end everything comes back to love. Love and intuition. When choosing your stones and crystals remember to always follow your intuition, it will never lead you astray.
Many people also ask about crystal maintenance. A popular question is “How do I cleanse my crystals?” There are a few different ways to do this. You can simply run them under cold water while sending loving intention to them. Another way is to place them in the full moon light. This can be done through a window in a window sill as well. Finally, you can place them on a selenite plate or in an amethyst geode. There are a few more we can go over another time, but these are sure ways to get your crystal energy shining bright again.
Enjoy your time working with crystals and stones!
