If you are new to using crystals you may have a few questions about them and how they can benefit you. We have put together a quick list of common questions to get you started on your crystal journey.
HOW DO CRYSTALS WORK?
Used in healing for over 9,000 years, crystals are growing entities that are formed from solarised sunlight, which take millions of years to form. They emit a stable and subtle energy. Their stable energy acts on our own bodies’ energy field to bring us back into vibrational harmony and balance.
Different coloured crystals emit particular frequencies and vibrations that work on different areas and energy centres (chakras) of your body. By working on balancing the energy of our body, they are said to heal and attune our mind, body and spirit.
HOW DO I CHOOSE MY CRYSTALS?
Picking crystals is super easy. You simply select the crystals that you are most drawn to. We are said to be intuitively attracted to the crystals we need the most. You will often find that the crystal you were drawn to, often has the healing effects you may benefit from. We have a helpful CRYSTAL QUIZ that will help guide you to your perfect crystal.
WHAT DO I DO WITH MY CRYSTALS?
Crystals store the energy of the people that they have been in contact with. It is therefore best to cleanse and clear your crystal when you receive it. One way to do this is to put your crystal on your windowsill overnight so it absorbs the moonlight. To benefit from a crystal they first need to be activated and programmed. To do this simply hold your crystal in your hands and visualise a bright white light around it and thank your crystal for its help and inspiration. This will connect you to your crystal and awaken its energy. Next, focus on the intention that you are after and ideally state out loud how it will assist you. For example “This crystal will bring me positivity and love”
WHAT SHOULD I EXPERIENCE WITH CRYSTALS?
Sometimes certain crystals can make the hairs stand up on your skin. Some people report hot and cold sensations. Other times you may not feel anything at all other than appreciation of the crystals natural beauty. Whether you can feel the physical sensations of your crystal or not, it is your daily reminder to focus on and allow positivity and uplifting energy to flow into your life. When worn, it can remind you of your full unlimited potential.
WHERE SHOULD I PUT MY CRYSTALS?
Crystals are great when worn as jewellery as wearing them against the skin helps to activate them. It also serves as a visual reminder of what we want to manifest and affirms this to our subconscious mind. For example, seeing your healing crystal bracelet everyday can help focus your intention on your healing journey and give you daily encouragement and support. If you have loose stones then you can put them wherever feels intuitive for you. For some people this is under their pillow, beside their bed or in their pockets or bag. The closer they are to you the better.
