WHY CRYSTAL HEALING WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD.
Throughout 2019 I learnt a-lot about manifestation and mindfulness which honestly changed my life. I also learnt about crystals and their benefits.
Now hear me out, I know a lot of people will read this and be like honestly Kirstie, how can a piece of rock help you?. I thought it was all just a phase people go through too, until I learnt about them and found that they actually helped me.
I’m not an expert, I still have a lot to learn about crystals as there is so many, and they all represent different energies. The few I do have though have boosted my happiness and overall self love. I always wear a rose quartz bracelet now as It just helps with my confidence and anxiety when I’m out. To put it as simply as I can, crystals are an energetic medicine.
Crystals can help with just about anything, from boosting finances to improving sleep. The crystal amplifies the energy of your intentions so you can reach your personal goals. I’m going to write different blog posts to go more in detail about the crystals that can help you for different intentions soon, but I wanted to start with a quick guide for beginners.
Crystals come in many different shapes and sized, it can be overwhelming to find your perfect stone. Whether a crystal catches your eye or you feel a physical pull towards one, your inner intuition will help guide you to the crystal that’s right for you.
Chunks can be good for enriching a rooms atmosphere, for holding during meditation or carrying in your pocket.
Cut crystals are crystals that have been cut and polished into shapes such as pyramids, wands or spheres.
Tumblestones are small stones, rocks or crystals that have become smooth and shiny. Many people like to carry them around in their pocket to keep the energy of the stone with them throughout the day.
These have a single point at one end and a rough or rounded edge at the other. They are used in healing, cleansing and meditation and as jewellery.
HOW TO POWER YOUR CRYSTALS.
Start by choosing one for the following options to power your crystals.
The sun burns off old energy and refills your crystal with vibrancy and light. Place your crystal outside in the sun for four hours or more.
This is when the moon is at it’s brightest. Bathing the crystals under the full moon restores them to their most lustrous form. Place the crystals outside in the light of the moon for four hours or more.
Water helps purify the crystals. Run them under tap water with a bit of sea salt for 30 seconds. Please make sure the crystal you use for this method is ok with sea salt as some crystals can be damaged this way.
Immerse the crystal in the smoke of burning sage for at least 30 seconds. This carries away any low vibrational energy and restores them to their pure form. This method is great for jewellery.
You can bury your crystals in the earth will clear any lingering energies. For best results, it is recommended to leave the crystal in the earth from 3 to 11 days.
Some crystals can actually help clear other stones. Selenite, quartz, amethyst and kyanite are just a few that can do this. Put one of those crystals under the crystal you want to clear and charge.
Once the crystal is ready, hold it in your hands, close your eyes and take three deep breaths. Connect with your highest vibration by focusing on what makes you happy.
Then say “I ask that the highest vibration of love and light connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy or any previous programming. I command this crystal to hold the intention of…”
Then think of three intentions (goals) you wish for this crystal to help you with. Finish by saying thank you three times.
GOOD CRYSTALS FOR BEGINNERS.
Amethyst is known for it’s powerful spiritual properties. This crystal is great for meditation as it boosts strength and provides protection. It’s also use as home decor too because of how beautiful it is.
This beautiful crystal also helps with people suffering from addictions as it helps the body and mind overcome toxicity and influence.
Amethyst was said to be worth as much as diamonds throughout history, which meant this crystal was a popular choice for Kings, Queens and priests.
Citrine is infused with light and is one of the most powerful stones for manifestation. It is perfect for beginners and stimulates your mind to make your intentions a reality.
This is one of the most popular crystals. Clear quartz amplifies your intention which means it’s a very important crystal to have for your collection. It also amplifies crystals you place around it too, this is due to the powerful cleansing effects it has.
Clear Quartz is perfect for manifestation as it boosts the energy of anything around it. It offers insight and helps clear your mind to focus your energy on what you require.
Rose Quartz is the unconditional stone for love, making it the perfect stone for love and confidence. This crystal purifies and opens the heart to promote love, self-love, friendship, and feelings of peace. Ruling the heart chakra, Rose Quartz can heal past hurt and loss. This stone can also aid in attracting love and teaches us to love from within.
This was one of the first crystals I used and still to this day is one of my favourites.
Selenite ensures positive flow between you and other crystals. This means that this stone is ideal for beginners. It is very useful for connecting the body and mind and grounding you. Selenite is believed to be connected to the moon.
SOME OF MY FAVOURITE STORES.
When it comes to buying your crystals, my recommendation would be to always go for the ones you are drawn to. I have a few local shops I find mine, as I like being able to see them in person first. However there are a few stores online I love.
I will write about the different types of crystals and what intentions they can help with in future posts, but I thought this would be a nice introduction. Do you use crystals?
