How To Use Crystals
Above, we have given some examples of crystals and what they can do but it is just as important to know the correct way to use them too. Because there are many crystals, this means there are many ways to use them.
Whichever one chosen is unique to that individual and depends on how comfortable it makes them feel. Here, we will be going through some ways to use your crystals as a beginner.
Wear Your Crystals
Many people choose to wear their crystals either in the form of a necklace or a bracelet. This is an ideal option, especially for beginners, as you are keeping the crystal close to you and are allowing that energy to stay through whatever you are doing.
Keep Them In Your Pocket
Another way to keep your crystals on you is to keep them in your pocket (if you don’t have pockets, keep them in your purse!). With a crystal on you, you will be granted with the energy to get you through the day.
Use Them In The Bathtub
Bring energy into a calm setting by scattering some small crystals into your bathtub. This is great for staying relaxed and keeping a calm energy. But with this said, make sure to look into which crystals are appropriate for this. Not all crystals should be submerged in water.
One of the most popular uses of crystals is to meditate with them. For those who do not know much about meditation, this is not a way of praying but instead a way of connecting with ourselves through the aid of crystals.
To meditate, hold your chosen crystal close to you, close your eyes and allow yourself to absorb the energy of the crystals.
Choosing The Right Crystal For You
Because of the major differences which come with crystals, it is important to select the right type of crystal for you. Every person should have a reason for choosing the stone they do.
Crystals are not a fashion accessory, but a stone used to guide you and heal, so it is important not to choose just any.
So, how is this done?
If you are wanting to start collecting your own crystals, first think about what you are missing in your life. A crystal’s job is to heal, so it is necessary to find that emptiness in you.
Perhaps you are losing sleep, or you have trouble communicating. Maybe you are feeling alone or are missing someone you love.
Once you have figured this out, you can then go ahead and choose a stone which connects to your issue. To receive any impact, it is important you make the right decision.
Caring For Your Crystal
Aside from owning a crystal, it is just as essential to take care of it too. As soon as your crystal arrives at your home, it is important to get rid of all of the negative energy which would have latched onto the stone.
Depending on your stone, there are ways you can cleanse your crystal. Some ways include:
- Immersing it in sea salt
- Holding it under cold running water
- Using sage
- Placing it under moonlight
- Placing it under the sun
What Can Crystals Do?
Although there is not much a crystal cannot do, there are still those who choose not to believe in the power of the crystals.
Physical Pain And Illness
Whilst crystals will not cure a sports injury or chronic illness, they will indeed help heal you spiritually. There are many people who use crystals in times of pain or when suffering with an illness. Doing so is great for supporting the body, soul and mind and healing you.
If you are struggling with a form of mental illness such as anxiety or depression, crystals have been notable to help.
Even doctors themselves have seen the effects of crystals for mentally ill patients as it helps to relax and bring people a sense of care and hope. However, it is important to speak to your doctor first.
With crystals, your mood will instantly change. You will be feeling happiness, understand spirituality on a deeper level, and most importantly, fulfillment with a sense of purpose.
It is important for this to work to have a relationship with your crystal. A lot of the work goes into how you treat the crystal and care for it – only then will you see improvements in your mood.
If you are someone who is new to the world of crystals, this should not be anything to be afraid of or intimidated by. By joining those who use crystals, you will be opening up your aura and allowing the healing of your mind, body and soul.
There are many who do not look at crystals in a positive light and believe its power to be made up, but this is far from the truth.
Of course, crystals are not magic and shouldn’t be viewed this way, but they do indeed work to heal and help you through the day.
Choose to wear your crystals as a bracelet, keep in your pocket, or leave on your bedside table when you go to sleep.
Crystals can make a real change in someone’s life, so don’t be afraid to join in and start using crystals yourself.
