HOW TO USE YOUR CRYSTALS
One way to benefit from the properties of the crystals and stones is to wear them. Often people who have no conscious knowledge of crystal healing will intuitively select crystal jewellery with stones that will have a positive healing effect for them.
Choose stones appropriate for the purpose you want but always use your intuition. Crystals worn on or close to the body are often used for healing or protective purposes. these usually do affect the entire body and energy field. The particular location of the stone is also not absolutely critical in most cases.
Placing the stone on or near the specific area related to the purpose of treatment is often faster and has a more focused effect, however as in any form of healing, The healing energies will go to where it is intended and to where the healing is needed. You can also direct and focus the energy from the crystal by intention.
Sometimes you will feel that a stone needs to be somewhere that has no pocket or practical place to wear jewellery. Little pouches can be pinned inside clothing for fine tuned placement.The length of the chain a pendant is on will help control the strongest effect of the stone. A pendant or necklace resting at the throat chakra might have the greatest effect on areas governed by the throat chakra (for example: communication and creativity and other throat chakra issues) but will still provide energy to the entire aura and physical body.
A stone worn lower down and near to or on the heart will again have a greater effect on issues and areas governed by the heart chakra, for example: matters of love and compassion.
Many people feel that the stones worn on the left side have to do with receiving energies and that stones worn on the right side will primarily influence projective matters and outside issues.
UNDER YOUR PILLOW
Keeping Crystals under the pillow whilst asleep has many advantages. Certain crystals can help with sleep problems like insomnia. They can ward off nightmares and psychic attacks. Other crystals have properties to aid in dream recall and some can assist in out of body experiences and astral travel.
IN THE BATH
Crystals can be used in the Bathwater or placed around the edge of the Bath Tub. This method is very effective and enjoyable. Bathing cleanses not just the physical body but also cleanses us on all 4 levels. Bathing can wash away the stresses and strains of the day, any negative emotions we might be holding onto and can refresh us, soothe us, revitalise us and energise us.
Placing Crystals in the bath will absorb any negative energy or emotions. In addition the healing energies of the crystal will be directed to where it is intended. Aventurine is an effective crystal for use in the bath. Good "all round" crystals like Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz and Amethyst are also great for use at bath times.
The energy structure of crystal naturally imparts a stillness and order to the subtle body system, which in turn helps to quieten the mind. Problems are issues that have not yet been resolved by normal thought processes. By altering our way of thinking away from everyday issues a solution can automatically arise. Crystals can be placed in front of you in meditation practice of they can be held in the hands.
PLACE AROUND YOUR HOME OR OFFICE
Crystal are able to alter the energy of a space, enlivening the atmosphere and neutralising negative energies. Crystals can add harmony to any space. There is no hard and fast rule as to where .you should place your crystals. You should use your intuition. Raw Crystals and Crystal Clusters have a better ability over small single crystals to retain their own energy integrity. Because of this they are able to retain more negative energy before they need to be cleansed again.
COUNTERACT ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION
Every day our bodies are subjected to harm from everyday substances. This is known as Environmental Stress. Substances like plastics, electricity, radio and microwaves have harmful effects. These substances increase the stress loading on our systems making us more susceptible to Illness and Disease. The earth has a natural electromagnetic field called the geomagnetic field. Man-made substances can reduce this ambient Earth Energy by shielding it, or by setting up stronger electromagnetic resonances that may interfere with natural frequencies. Electrical devices in the home and workplace create a powerful electromagnetic field around itself. This can cause a problem of entrainment in a person who is run down or susceptible. Entrainment is when the natural frequencies of the body become enmeshed with a stronger set of frequencies from an outside force. Crystals can be used to amplify personal energy fields which may counteract the affects of environmental pollution. The use of crystals is becoming quite popular in modern offices where computers, artificial lighting, air conditioning, metal furniture and nylon carpets can be disastrous for the energy system.
It is important to clean a crystal when your crystal arrives and then clean your crystals after you have been working with them, such as in healing work or meditation, as they absorb the negative energy.
Some methods of cleaning crystals can give you the ability to charge them at the same time. While other methods of charging your crystals need to be done separately from the cleaning process.
When charging your crystals you need to have an intent. Do you want them to heal, find a life partner, bring you wealth, or clear your Karma. You can key the crystal to its task by saying affirmations as you charge them.
PROGRAM A CRYSTAL FOR A SPECIFIC NEED
For crystal healing this is the final step, as it focuses the energy of the crystal. Hold the crystal in your hands and picture light surrounding it if you can’t do this hold you hands in front of a natural light source and say out loud:
"I dedicate this crystal to the highest good of all.
May it be used in light and love".
If you wish your crystal to perform a specific task hold the crystal in your hands think about the purpose, you must be specific. When you are ready say out loud I program this crystal for …..
Then you can place it some where you will see it regularly or keep it in your pocket, touch and hold the crystal a few times a day so that it will key to your energies.
