How do crystals work

Crystals work with the human energy field and can move, absorb, focus, direct and diffuse energy within the body. Working with crystalline energy helps the body to find it’s natural rhythm. All crystals radiate pure patterns since they are sourced directly from nature. They are mother natures production of art and a representation of how energy is harnessed correctly to create perfect harmony in the material world. Crystals can be programmed with our thought energy and then act behind the scenes to work on our subtle energy fields. They also help to create situations in our lives that will lead us in the directions that allow positive growth and healing.

How to choose your crystals

Choosing crystals can be an intuitive process where you have to feel what you're being naturally drawn to or you can receive a Free Crystal Consultation and find out what crystals may be of benefit for your current journey. You can physically sense the crystals energies simply by holding it in your hand or if you're seeing one online, choose the crystal that most appeals to you or physically attracts you. Trying to choose your crystal can be a little overwhelming if you're drawn to so many and at the same time! To help narrow your options, you can close your eyes, ask your higher self to help you choose the right stones you may need and upon opening you'll feel certain of your choice.

How to set an intention with your crystals

1. Hold the crystal associated with your intention as you say your phrase aloud. Your crystal will hold your intention and stay with you throughout the day, even if it’s not on your conscious mind. 

2. Take a deep breath in and then exhale slowly. Allow any tension in your body to dissipate before speaking you words of love. Repeat this 3 times.

3. When you are fully relaxed, say your chosen phrase out loud to yourself three times—the power of three is universal as it contains a beginning, middle, and end connecting your mind, body, and spirit. 

"I program this crystal to help me with ____________. So it is."

Cleansing with lunar light

“Listen to the moon; it knows secrets of our past, controls the present, and tells our future.” - F.K. Sylvia

The Full Moon and New Moon are perfect times to cleanse and energetically charge your crystals. Simply place your crystals the evening of the Full/New Moon in a location where they will receive the lunar light. You may be able to place them outside but watch out for sudden rain as some crystals can get damaged with water.

Other cleansing methods

Smudging - Smudge your crystals with burning cedar or sage. This allows your stones to be purified. To do so, simply hold the burning sage or cedar stick while passing your stone through the smoke. Other commonly used smudging herbs include: white sage, cedar, juniper, palo santo, sweetgrass and sandalwood.

Earth - Burying your crystals into the earth is helpful when you feel a deep cleansing is needed. Dig a hole outside the size of your crystal, place your crystal point down and cover it with soil. Leave it in for a day.

Breathwork - Blowing away any negativity with ones sacred breath is quick and easy. Hold the stone in your hand and blow on it, while blowing visualize white light surrounding the crystal and ask your higher higher self to assist you during this crystal cleanse.

Water - Hold the stone in a stream of running water or take a dip in the ocean with your crystals. Place them in a glass bowl of ocean water (natural sea salt+purified water) works wonderful too. This will allow all negative energy the crystal may have picked up to be washed away. Note that some crystals may not be water-friendly and can get damaged.

Reiki - If you are a Reiki practitioner, you too can Reiki your stones and crystals. Hold them in your hands and sett the intention for your crystals to be cleansed.

Crystals - Placing your stones on a bed of Amethyst or in a bag with Carnelian will cleanse them. Using Selenite as a crystal resting bed can also keep your stones cleansed and energized.
