Four Easy Ways to Use Crystals

OK, so you have been bitten by the crystal bug and your collection has started to grow. They’re pretty and attractive, you know how to cleanse them and you think you feel something from them, but what next?

(If you’re not sure how to cleanse your crystals here’s a helpful post)

Well, the first thing is, you don’t have to do ANYTHING with them. If you just enjoy them for how they look and feel, that’s fine.

If you want to get a bit more out of your crystals here are just a few simple ways you can get more assistance from your amethyst or more zap from your zoisite.

  • 1. Carry or wear them: This is the most  beneficial way of getting the crystal energy you need at any given moment. Whether nestled in your jeans pocket, in a corner of your purse, snugly in your bra or wearing them as jewellery,  having the crystals close to your body and in your personal space is just fabulous. It keeps the vibration of the crystal aligned to you and your aura (energy field) and you to it. Just use your intuition to choose one or more crystals for the day and away you go. It’s easy to do – handle or look at your stones and you will be drawn to one or more. You can also use a pendulum to choose which, how many and for how long you need them, but simply picking your gem from a bowl will do just fine.
  • 2. Meditate with crystals: No, don’t panic if you don’t or feel you can’t meditate. Meditating with crystals is so easy to do. And even if you get distracted, you will still have the benefit from being with the crystal. The simplest way is to spend a few minutes just sitting quietly with your crystal, gazing at it, turning it over in your hands and just going with the flow. Here are some more tips for a really lovely crystal meditation.
  • 3. Place around the home or workspace: To me there is nothing nicer than being able to see and sense crystals as I work, relax or rest. I love going into a home where crystals are around, there is always a nice feel. Certain crystals such as Rose Quartz or Amethyst keep a loving, happy and healing vibe around the home. Others such as black tourmaline or shungite, can protect us from negative energies and even the energy waves from electronic devices.
  • 4. Give them away: (Shock! Horror!) No, I’m not advocating giving away all your lovely collection! But crystals do make a lovely gift and if you concentrate on the recipient when choosing and let the crystals hook up with your intuition you can get just the thing they need or want (even if they didn’t know). I do give away lots from my personal collection too, so if you find yourself looking at a lovely green malachite and thinking of your friend Susan, then perhaps Susan needs a little random act of crystal kindness. (Don’t forget to give her a few cleansing tips too if she is new to crystals.)

So there you have it, 4 easy ways to get the most from your crystals. Do let me know what you think, and which crystals you love to have around you.

And if you’d like to buy a crystal as a gift, here’s my shop for some ideas.

Much love,
