This short guide will show you how to use healing crystals, complete with practical guidelines that you can observe as a healing crystal user.
By keeping these tips in mind, you will be able to better harness the power of healing crystals, helping you become more efficient and effective in your approach.
Tip #1: Begin with an end in mind
When using healing crystals, it’s important to take note of our own individual goals; the ends that we want to achieve.
Purchasing a bunch of healing crystals, without setting a goal or intention, is not going to create results.
Instead, having a ton of unnecessary healing crystals in your bedroom creates conflicting energies.
As such, one consideration for you to effectively utilize healing crystals is to begin with an end in mind.
Just as in all things, having an end in mind is one of the best ways to succeed in life. When the goal is clear, an individual with perseverance and wits will be able to achieve it.
The first tip is to make sure that you are clear about what you want to achieve.
Once you have clarity in what you want to achieve and experience, you can start sifting through different healing crystals that are aligned with your intentions.
Beginning with an end in mind is a far more prudent approach.
Thus, the next healing crystal purchase you make should be a meaningful one; a choice that is sensitive to your goals and vision in life.
When you have an end in mind, you become heavily in-sync with your healing crystal.
Tip #2: Let your healing crystal choose you
As a counterpart of our first tip on how to use healing crystals, the second one places emphasis on the healing crystal instead of the user.
As we learn more about using healing crystals, we learn more about the importance of aligning our goals and visions with the energies of the earth’s vibrations. and its vibrations.
This is why it is crucial to properly select our healing crystals.
Beyond this, we must understand that the power of healing crystals is not something we can command.
Healing crystals are not machines that we can fix and utilize at will. Rather, they are containers of the mystic energies and vibrations of the world around us.
We have to realize that healing crystals also have the power to choose its user. You have to view healing crystals with reverence, taking into account their mystic nature.
When choosing your healing crystals, you have to remember that you are not fully in control.
When you choose your healing crystals, try to let go of your ego. This practice will allow you to feel its power work through you.
This process of letting go of your biases and preconceived notions will lead to a healing crystal choosing you to become its owner.
Allow the crystal to project itself in your mind. Hold it in the palms of your hands and feel its energies. If it’s right, you’ll feel a strong connection, almost as if the healing crystal is alive.
That sense of belonging and connection will act as your cue – that your crystal has selected you as its owner. Be sensitive, let go, and immerse yourself in their powers, as you allow them to pick you.
Just as a warrior is capable of using any weapon, a legendary sword chooses its owner. The same is true with healing crystals.
Tip #3: Avoid using too many healing crystals at the same time
It may be tempting to follow the practice of healing experts and fill your entire house with healing crystals, it might not be advisable to follow suit.
They have spent years of learning and practicing crystal healing, so it would be safe to assume that they’re familiar with how to use healing crystals.
They might not stop you from buying all the healing crystals you want, but it remains good practice to avoid having too many healing crystals.
One good reason is that having too many healing crystals distorts our focus and dilutes the entire effect.
Just as in buffets, filling your plate with more than what you can consume will inevitably result to spoilage or puking.
For one, we have to understand that this goes with the natural laws of the universe – that an excess will lead to a regress.
Nature seeks balance, and the lack of it leads to chaos.
Healing crystals embody the essence of nature itself. And part of nature’s essence is to maintain balance.
Following the natural course of nature, we should refrain from having too many crystals at once.
Another good reason why we should avoid ourselves being bombarded with too many crystals is that our focus can only handle one at a time.
In using healing crystals, we usually meditate with them. As discussed in the previous sections, meditating with healing crystals requires inner tranquility and silence; a process which allows for its power to work within us.
Having too much of them in one place will not only cause a disturbance in energy flow, but also disperse your attention just by the mere fact that they can simultaneously fill in your subconscious.
Similar to a cluttered home creating a cluttered mind, having too many healing crystals at one time contributes to a lack of focus and internal chaos.
Thus, you are better off having a few at the same time, as this keeps each healing crystal’s functions in-check.
Tip #4: Store them properly
Technically, you can own every single healing crystal in the world.
The catch is that you have to be sensitive in doing so, as keeping and storing them properly becomes more difficult.
Each healing crystal is a condensed form of nature’s energy. Carelessly storing them will lead to a chaotic mix of vibrations.
As such, it’s up to you to be a responsible owner. Ensure proper moderation in the quantity and variety of your healing crystals collection.
This means being responsible enough to avoid squandering them around. Making sure that each crystal is housed in a secured compartment will be something to bear in mind.
Practicing this will clear your subconscious from unnecessary clutter as your ensure that their energies don’t mix.
Preventing them from mixing ensures that they won’t cancel out each other or add-up to form an incomprehensible vibration.
A multi-compartment jewelry box is a great way to store your healing crystals. Although storing crystals altogether can be acceptable (especially if they are coming from the same intention and family), it is always better to have multiple compartments.
This storage method gives you quick access to your crystals. It will also physically prevent your crystals from getting damaged or consuming dirt.
Lastly, your healing crystals will be kept clean from negative energies, ensuring that they’re sufficiently charged.
Tip #5: Clean your Healing Crystals
Physically, healing crystals can be subjected to wear and tear – a natural process of using them.
Beyond taking care of your healing crystal’s exterior, it’s also important to cleanse the internal energy that’s stored within it.
Failure to take care of your healing crystal can result to negative consequences, particularly on the kind of energy it emits. This is, of course, with the premise that healing crystals practically act as vessels of energy.
In this case, a protective crystal may absorb negative energy, reducing the possibility of bad things to happen in your life. In the same way, positive crystals may attract luck and good riddance through its energies.
However, their effectiveness may vary and possibly be affected by the way that you have kept them.
One possible factor is when you have accidentally mixed crystals which have conflicting energies. When these energies mix together, they may end up canceling out (a predicament for a cleanse and charge) or they may form negative electromagnetic waves which aren’t helpful to you in any way.
Furthermore, you would also know if it’s time to clean your crystals because you’ll feel the declining effect in your life. As you reflect on your own experiences, you’ll feel that lack even when you are facing your crystals – a way of them signalling you to do something about it.
Cleansing your healing crystals should be treated as a general form of maintenance for owning them. When you purchase a healing crystal, you are taking a piece of mother earth in your hands, making you its guardian.
Like nature, we have to take care of healing crystals by making sure that they are both externally and internally clean; free of both physical and energetic debris.
Tip #6: Charge your Healing Crystals
Just as we need to cleanse our crystals, we also need to make sure that they are charged. This brings us to the next tip as we learn how to use healing crystals.
While we may not know it, certain activities can lead to discrepancies in how healing crystals emit their energies. As such, it is necessary to make sure that they are charged.
In most cases, newly purchased healing crystals have plenty of charges in them. This is because the ones who originally had them most likely had the proper skills to handle these crystals. Also, they obtained these crystals without the intention of using them, making its energy fully intact.
But as we use our healing crystals, their energies will naturally deplete. Most crystal healing experts would say that they won’t fully deplete, but making sure that they are charged is essential for them to be consistently effective.
Black tourmaline, for instance, is used to ward off negative vibrations and bad luck. As we carry it with us every day, either in our purse or as a wearable jewelry, it absorbs most of the negative energies around us.
But as we use it, the warding energies contained in the healing crystal is depleted.
One way to charge a healing crystal is to reconnect it with its original habitat – the soil. Just as our phones are powered by energy, we plug healing into the soil to power them up.
So the more we use our healing crystals, the more we are required to charge and clean them.
This premise also assumes that the rate of charging our healing crystals is commensurate to the amount of usage that we have. The electromagnetic vibrations stored in healing crystals are consumed at accelerated rates, especially if we use them both physically and internally.
As you use your Carnelian in your bath, and sleep with it afterwards, while taking it with you in the office hoping that you will ward off those negativities in your daily tasks, it will be quickly depleted.
You will notice this phenomenon as you gradually become more susceptible to stress and become less courageous in your dealings.
With this, it is important to know that it is not enough to simply clean our crystals. It is also equally important to charge them, making sure that they have enough vibrations and energies within.
Tip #7: Be sensitive to the 7 Chakra Points
The last and final general tip in this section will be about the relevance of Chakra Points.
In Chakra Healing, there are 7 known chakra points which represent pathways of energy in and out of the body. These 7 charka points each serve a different purpose, specifically relevant to their bodily function.
For instance, the heart chakra can be located near the chest, and functions as a pathway of cosmic energy for our own feelings. As such, when we have problems with the way we communicate with others, the heart chakra can be an avenue for improvement.
With this, all the other 7 chakra points have relevance to the overall structure of chi energy healing. And while it is different from crystal healing, we cannot deny that such exists and is valuable in its own right.
One of the simplest yet most effective ways to use a healing crystal is by wearing it. Physically integrating your healing crystal greatly improves its effectiveness. Being worn brings it closer to you, making it easier to transmit or absorb those electromagnetic waves.
It naturally makes sense that we should be sensitive to chakra points for two reasons.
First, being sensitive to chakra points can further amplify the effect of our healing crystals.
Second, using our healing crystals on the wrong side of our bodies can lead to chakra blockages.
Sensitivity to chakra points amplifies the power of healing crystals by attracting proper energies to the right places.
For instance, rose quartz is commonly used for its relationship-aiding properties. We can then further amplify its power by meditating upon it while it is on our heart chakra. Aside from bringing in its relaxing and love-attracting vibe, it also can re-balance our relationships with others.
If you feel this imbalance, it greatly helps if you are able to identify the chakra related to it. By seeing that our relationships are having problems, then most likely our heart chakra is blocked or unbalanced, which can be corrected with the help of rose quartz.
On the other hand, these chakra points can backfire and serve contrary to the purpose that we want.
Failing to recognize their proper functions as we use our healing crystals can create conflicting signals, nullifying our intentions.
Learning how to use healing crystals might seem daunting at first. But as long as your intentions and attention is correctly aligned, you can be rest assured that your crystals will last a long time.
By following these tips, you’ll ensure that your healing crystals are properly cared for. And likewise, your healing crystals will be in the best shape to care for you.
Think of healing crystals not as objects, but as living beings that vibrate at their own distinctive frequencies. Focus on strengthening your relationship with them and serve them; that’s how they can best serve you!
