Crystals are simply the love of the Earth, forged over aeons and in ridiculous love for us, they fight to the surface of the earth to ensure we are able to physically connect with her bounty. Forever changed was my view as I have learned to honor and work with these gifts of the Earth.
Crystals are uniquely different in size, texture, color, and vibration. While quartz may be the perfect ally for some tasks, other crystals are uniquely suited for specific purposes for each offers their own places of mastery and wisdom. Follow your intuition on what crystals are offering what benefits, you may find smoky quartz to be just the boon for soothing your upset stomach while lepidolite is known to be a soother of stress. Many books are available which will guide your research.
To simply pick up a crystal is a gift for immediately its resonance will affect us physically, emotionally and spiritually. Here are some ways to use crystals to enhance your day-to-day reality.
All crystals will help you better connect with your own intuition and hear subtle messages from the universe. My favorite crystals and their use is with my own spiritual path. Amethyst will help open your 3rd eye, ajna chakra, to better perceive the unseen around you.
Apophyllite on the 3rd eye will magnify the power of your psychic vision and a mild vibration can be felt by sensitive souls.
You may practice with any crystal you are drawn to. While laying down, place the crystal of your choosing on your 3rd eye — slightly between and above the eyebrows. With a loving invitation, ask the crystal to assist you, to expand your awareness and notice how you feel. Some people may experience strong physical sensations while others may feel nothing at all. Be gentle as you begin to explore the ways crystals will affect you and trust that it is amplifying your psychic vision.
Placing crystals in plants is a most harmonious partnership and is nature at her most connected. Using crystals to assist the plant kingdoms is both a generous and bounteous gift. Like crystals, plants will emit their own energetic, psychic signature. To bless a plant with a crystal partner is to create a partnership that will amplify all life around you.
There is a symbiotic relationship, the plant will cleanse the crystal, the crystal will bless the plant.
Choose the crystals you are guided to or ask the plant itself, until you feel an urge of confirmation. You may place the crystals in the dirt with the plant or around the container if the chosen crystal is too large.
You may feel an immediate sigh of delight as this friendship is offered. Both are in immense gratitude for the support of the other.
Your plants will thrive, your environment will be purified and your connection to the earth realms will be even easier to traverse.
If meditation is already a part of your practice, using crystals to enhance your connections to God and the unseen realms will offer untold blessings.
As a natural amplifier of energy, crystals deepen your meditation and grant you access to spaces you may not discover on your own.
Pietersite, for example, is an excellent stone for working in the Akashic Records while howlite will help you access past lives. If peace of mind is what you require, serpentine will put you in a gentle connection with Angels to soothe and enhance your meditations.
Crystals can help you connect with your higher self, spiritual masters and ascended beings and gives greater clarity on your path.
As with plants, the uses for crystals in meditation are vast and yours to explore.
These crystals may very likely become allies for you and will hold the potency of your truth and vibration which can elevate your meditative states and practices.
Water is a living liquid vibration. Crystals can both purify and cleanse the water and are a blessed partnership.
To Cleanse: Naturally running water is a rare treat and our tap water goes through all sorts of contaminants before showing up in our glass. Crystals can be used to cleanse water. Shungite cleans water: when used properly it can remove impurities from your water. After all, water has a crystal structure so the partnership of these two is a blessed union indeed.
To Bless: Known as gem elixirs, you can put crystals directly in your water to receive their love and absorb their vibrations. Note however not all crystals can go in water directly, some will be harmful or may even dissolve contaminating your water. Do your research before ever placing crystals directly in your water.
Healing Crystals For You
Crystals transmit a frequency, they are able to alleviate the vibrations of unease and discomfort we encounter. I will often turn to crystals before I turn to medication as they offer a profound gift of direct connection with the blessings of the earth.
You may be surprised to discover that crystals will hold a vibration, both their own and those they are working with. Sodalite at the back of the neck, for instance, will help to extract a headache while rose quartz on the heart will help to soothe sadness.
Placing crystals directly on the afflicted area is suggested and cleaning the crystal after is imperative to restore the natural frequency of your crystal.
From physical pain to emotional distress, there is a perfect crystal ally waiting to help. All you need do is ask!
If working with the chakra system, crystals can be used to help balance your energetic field. Find a stone that is the color of the chakra you are working with and it can immediately assist in fine-tuning your vibrations. Placed directly on the body, the crystal can bring you back into balance and harmony more quickly.
