Working With Crystals – A Guide on How to Use Them for Healing and Manifestation

golden crystals and gemstones

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 emit specific unique vibrational outputs. When we vibrate higher, we radiate kindness, love, peace, and compassion.

People dealing with lower vibrations tend to experience 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, or negative news. Even reliving bad memories can put us in a low-vibing mood, though these memories need to be released as they no longer serve us.

The Stability of Crystals

Crystals, on the other hand, do not have ever-changing frequencies. Crystals are made of very stable energy frequencies that don’t change. They consist of a set, always repeating, geometric pattern of molecules. Stability with no effort—the opposite of our ever-changing, unstable human nature.

Why does this matter? Well, more stable energy equals more powerful energy. This powerful energy can mold the energies around it. Therefore, crystals can deeply influence our unstable (less powerful) human 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 visual reminders 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.

To work with crystals, hold them, place them on your body, or keep them nearby. Meditation is often used to calm the mind and relax the body, and a good crystal (like quartz) can assist with this. A grounding stone can help you feel centered.

Even if healing crystals offer 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, which are helpful in many ways.

Cleansing and Charging Your Precious Stones

The first step in working with your new crystal is to cleanse it. Cleansing is important because your crystals have probably passed through many hands and energies before arriving to you.

There are many ways to cleanse crystals, but I will share the easiest and most suitable methods for all crystals.

Cleanse your crystals when you first get them and regularly thereafter, especially if they are in high-traffic areas where they may pick up many outside energies.

You can place them outside in the moonlight or use a smudge stick.

Now that your crystals are cleansed, they are ready to be charged! Charging crystals means programming them with your intentions and goals.

Sometimes, cleansing and charging are used together, such as “charging” crystals in the moonlight. This is perfectly fine. Crystals can be charged with your intentions and used to manifest your desires into the universe.

How to Use Crystals in Your Daily Life

Crystals can help you manifest your desires, communicate more clearly, or calm your anxiety. You can integrate them into your meditation, yoga, or prayers.

Take them with you when traveling to feel safe and energetically protected.

Crystals won’t magically change things with a snap of your fingers—you do need to invest time and energy to help create what you want.

However, I have found them to be very supportive in directing and focusing my energy and enhancing my prayers and intentions.

Another great use for crystals is to use them for Chakra Cleansing. For more on enhancing your spiritual practice, check out our blog on How to Cleanse Your Main Seven Chakras.  


Working with crystals can be a transformative experience. By cleansing, charging, and using them regularly, you can tap into their stable energy to support your healing, manifest your desires, and elevate your spiritual practice.

Embrace the power of crystals and enjoy the journey!
