Working with crystals

Hold the cleansed crystal in your hand (right or left) and send it a telepathic message. The energy of your thoughts will be incorporated into the crystal. Meditating with your crystal: Crystals can enhance the energies of your meditation. You can hold the crystal, wear it, place it on a specific chakra (if it is small enough), or combine it with other crystals you are using.

Chakra Use

The human body is believed to contain several "points of energy" (called chakras) that help govern the way we feel. If a chakra is "low on energy" - then it can have a profound effect on your health. It is believed that crystals can help restore a chakras energy levels to normal (and thus improve the way you feel). If you'd like to try this, find a place to lay/sit down (i.e. somewhere you can relax safely) and place a single crystal of the corresponding color onto each chakra (for around ten minutes):

 

  1. Base/Root chakra - use brown crystals to assist energy associated with grounding, quietening and stabilizing.

  2. Sacral chakra - use red crystals to assist energy associated with physical energy, initiation and positive thought.

  3. Solar plexus chakra - use orange crystals to assist energy associated with happiness, self-discipline, and self-worth.

  4. Heart chakra - use green crystals to assist energy associated with harmony, love, and compassion.

  5. Throat chakra - use blue crystals to assist energy associated with communication, logic, and understanding.

  6. Brow chakra - use indigo (i.e. dark blue) crystals to assist energy associated with clarification, intuition, and perspective.

  7. Crown chakra - use white crystals to assist energy associated with imagination, optimism, and strengthening.

 

To increase the potency of this approach, you may also combine it with meditation. For example, as you relax (with crystals on you), you may wish to visualize the color of each chakra becoming more intense, gradually merging together until you obtain a balanced flow, that moves slowly upwards throughout your entire body - helping to keep you in sync with the Earth.

If you're new to crystals, you may find it hard to remember "which crystal is which" if you attempt to work with seven crystals/chakras straight away. As such, you may find it easier to work with one crystal/chakra at a time (for a while), which will also help you isolate which crystals work well with you.
