Many cultures have long used crystals and stones as a means of healing the body. In the past century, the scientific community has discovered the amazing properties of certain stones and minerals.
Science has proven that energy is everything, and everything is energy. You, the coffee cup you’re holding, the chair you sit on, and the crystals you know and love –it is all vibrating energy.
Just like everything else on this planet, we humans omit specific unique vibrational outputs.
When we vibrate higher, we radiate from those showing kindness, love, peace, and compassion. People who are dealing with llower vibrations tend to have low-vibe emotions like jealousy, anxiety, anger, or fear.
As humans, our vibrations are unstable because our emotions are easily influenced.
Although, we are powerful Beings, our energetic field can change when we are around people, social media, listen to negative news on TV or radio. Even we can put ourself in a low-vibing mood reliving bad memories that in actuality need to be released as they don’t serve us anymore.
Crystals do not have ever-changing frequencies.
Now, crystals are made of very stable energy frequencies that don’t change. Crystals are made up of a set, always repeating, geometric patterns of molecules. Stability with no effort. The opposite of our always changing, unstable human nature.
Why does this matter? Well, more stable energy equals being more powerful. This powerful energy can mold the energies around it. Therefore, crystals can deeply influence our human unstable (less powerful) energy.
Crystals are very useful for the body. They are used in various forms to increase vitality and protect people from illnesses.
Working with Crystals
Because of their metaphysical properties, crystals and stones are often referred to as “healing crystals” or “crystal stones.” They can serve as a visual reminder of an intention you’ve set or a way of feeling that you want to have. Crystals can also help you feel grounded and centered.
Most people associate crystals with metaphysical healing properties, however crystals have been used for healing for thousands of years.
Crystals hold a certain vibrational frequency. This can be done by holding them. Or even by putting them on your body and placing your hands on them.
Meditation is often used to calm the mind and relax the body. A good crystal (i.e., quartz) will do this for you. You might also need a grounding stone to help you feel grounded.
Even if healing crystals are no more than a soothing effect in terms of physical or mental healing, they play a deeply supportive role in your spirituality and intuitive healing process. Crystals are associated with energies such as love, clarity, protection, and cleansing, all which are helpful in so many ways.
Cleansing and Charging Crystals
Working with your new crystal is to cleanse it.
Cleansing is an important step because your crystals has probably passed through many hands and energies before arriving to you. There are many ways of cleansing, I am just sharing what I found easiest and is suitable for all crystals.
It’s best to cleanse your crystals when you first get them, but you should also plan to cleanse your them regularly.
This is needed most if they are in high traffic areas, where they may be picking up a many outside energies.
You may place them outside in the moonlight or you can use a smudge stick.
Now that your crystals are cleansed, they are ready to be charged!
Charging crystals is just programming them with your intentions and goals.
The words cleansing and charging are sometimes used together, and you might hear about “charging” their crystals in the moonlight. This is completely OK, too. Crystals can be charged with your intentions and used to call your desires out into the universe.
Crystals are here to help you manifest your desires, communicate more clearly, or calm your anxiety.
You can add them into your meditation, yoga, or prayers. Take them with you when traveling to feel safe and energetically protected.
Crystals won’t magically make things change with a snap of your fingers – you do have to take the time and energy to help create what you want.
All in all I have found them to be very supportive in directing and focusing my energy and increasing my prayers & intentions. Enjoy your crystals!
