How To Work With Crystals
I wanted to write this post to show you just how easy and simple it is to work with crystals.
The art of working with crystals can be traced back centuries, but now we're starting to see it more and more in a culture where we are understanding just how healing elements from nature can be. I started working with crystals about a year ago, and I find myself seeking their help when I'm having difficulty with my emotional and mental health. Here I will show you which crystals I love to work with the most, how I use them and how the benefits of this energy work can bring more balance into your life.
How to cleanse the crystals
First, I want to teach you how and why we cleanse the crystals before we wear them.
The idea is that crystals absorb and give off energy to what's around them. Negative energies that we give off or attaches to us during the day can and will be absorbed by the crystals. By cleansing them before you wear them or work with them, you avoid old energy to reattach to you. The best way to do this is by burning sage or Palo Santo and letting the smoke smudge around the crystal. I also suggest cleansing yourself before working with them, this will help you be free of any lingering energies around you.
Rose Quartz is my favorite crystal to work with. If it's beautiful pink color doesn't catch your attention, it's ability to work with energies will. It is known as the "heart stone", bring ability to heal broken hearts and to restore unconditional love. It promotes inner healing, restores trust and harmony in relationships and invokes self-trust and worth. This crystal works best by wearing it in a necklace, close to your heart.
To meditate with it, I like to lay on my back, placing the stone on my heart, and imagining a pink glow radiating from the rock, into my heart, healing all the brokenness within it.
Clear Quartz it's the perfect stone to use while working with your chakras, since it can connect with and aid all of them, but it's most helpful with the Crown Chakra. The Crown Chakra controls how we perceive situations and working with this crystal will aid the development of clairvoyance. It's also known for it's ability to amplify intentions, making it useful to use for manifesting. Clear quartz also protects your aura, alleviates fatigue and exhaustion and helps with concentration.
To set intentions with this crystal, all you do is hold it in-between your hands, take a few deep breaths to ground yourself and focus on what you want to transfer to the crystal.
Amethyst is well known for its beautiful purple and violet color, hard to miss among all other crystals. Amethyst connects with the Crown Chakra to calm your thoughts, helping you bring spiritual protection. It works well at alleviating stress, anxiety, sadness and anger and it helps you disconnect from unhealthy attachments and addictions.
By meditating with this crystal, you'll be able to be more in tune with your feelings, helping you know yourself better.
Citrine is the perfect manifestation stone. It encourages motivation, activates creativity and intellect and it attracts abundance and success. This stone allows you to detach from fear and welcomes positive changes into your life.
To activate, simply hold it while meditating with it, thinking of your goals and dreams, allowing all the feelings that come with it to be absorbed by the crystal.
Selenite is a powerful crystal, named after the Greek Goddess of the Moon. Selenite works great at cleansing your aura, cleaning all negative energies from within you and provides clarity for the mind. I love working with this crystal because it brings a calming energy, deep peace and mental clarity.
The best way to meditate with this crystal is to place the crystal on the floor, placing your bare feet on top. The energy of the earth will bring balance into your being, allowing you to remove blocks of negative energy in you.
