Crystals are healing gifts from Mother Earth
Crystals galore! Most of us here in the metaphysical community love & collect healing crystals. Not only are they gorgeous, but they are powerful. Deep within their rich colors and sparkly rainbows lie the healing secrets of the Earth. All of which are accessible to anyone who consciously chooses to access them. Even you!
“You know the world is a magical place when Mother Earth grows her own jewelry.” *
Recently, I completed Ashley Leavy’s Crystal Healer Certification Course and became certified in crystal healing. For the last several years I’ve been drawn to all sorts of crystals, and I’ve managed to collect some lovely treasures. Crystal energy is so magical and irresistible, I wanted to absorb as much knowledge as possible. And I want to share a bit of that knowledge with you today!
I am not here to try to convince you of healing crystal energies.
The goal of this blog post is not to convert you into a crystal loving fiend (mostly because there is a pretty good chance you already are one if you’re reading this!). Those of us that allow our reality to be flexible and magical WILL benefit from healing crystals.
Plenty of people around the world claim that any form of alternative healing (such as healing crystals, reiki, and aromatherapy) only produces a placebo effect on our brains. Therefore, it is the mind making these changes and not the therapies themselves. But, in my opinion, that is EXACTLY what makes alternative healing so incredibly powerful and effective. Energy healers don’t necessarily care how the ailment is healed, just so long as it is healed.
We just need to give ourselves the physical tools we need to facilitate our own healing. Tools such as essential oils or healing crystals can help us make positive changes in our lives. Who cares if there is no scientific “proof” of their magic? We have felt the energies ourselves, and we don’t need Big Brother validating our experiences.
So if you’re a skeptic just looking to pick a fight, I kindly ask you to bring your negative energies elsewhere. If you’re already on board the crystal-loving train, then I welcome you to continue reading!
The very basics of crystal healing
Crystals have subtle energies because of their perfect arrangement of molecules, known as their “molecular blueprint.” Every single molecule is perfectly aligned with all the other molecules. Because of these precisely stacked molecules, each crystal has a subtle vibration that determines what properties it promotes.
There are seven different atomic structures for crystals, meaning there are seven basic ways this molecular blueprint can be planned out. Naturally, each structure correlates with a certain chakra. Unique crystalline lattice structures vibrate at the atomic level (like everything else in the Universe) which ultimately gives the healing crystal it’s healing energy.
Humans also give off subtle vibrations, referred to as our aura or our energy field. These energies are a direct reflection of our current physical & emotional state. When we invite the energies of crystals into our energy field, we go through the process of entrainment, where our energy begins to mimic the energy of the crystal. This is where magic and healing occur!
Cleansing, charging, and programming crystals
Yes, all three are different! You may not have known there were so many ways to play with crystals. Putting them on display is great, but actually interacting with your crystals is so much better. Plus, it would be a shame to have a gorgeous crystal collection and not take advantage of the gifts they have to offer you.
Cleansing is the act of clearing away any negative, stagnant, or unwanted energies from the crystal’s energy field. This keeps integrity in the energy. Charging is allowing the crystal to soak up outside energies of the Earth and/or Universe. The idea here is to infuse the crystal with the energies of these elements. Programming is purposefully giving a crystal a specific intention through the power of visualization. Direct the energy of the crystal towards a specific thought to assist in manifesting or other soul work.
I have created a quick booklet that goes into more detail about cleansing, charging, and programming your crystals. And its totally free! Take your love of crystals to the next level, and start utilizing their energies to the fullest potential. All the crystals you have now are in your life for a reason, so don’t let another day go by without actually using them.
4 Easy Ways To Use Healing Crystals
Why would you want to work with crystals every day? Taking the time to play with your gems every day helps you build a relationship with them, get to know their energy while they get to know yours. Just like humans, each stone is a little different, even if they are of a certain variety. Not all amethyst is going to be exactly the same. And just like any other relationship, it will take a little bit of time to build that trust.
Now that we have built a strong foundation for integrating crystals into our spiritual journeys, we can start using them every day! New crystal enthusiasts are often confused about what to actually do with their crystals. So here are four simple ways anyone can utilize the power within the crystals:
During your regular meditation, simply let your crystals rest in your hands. Or if your crystal is quite large, you can sit beside it on the floor. You may also lay your crystals upon your body, right over the corresponding chakra, while you meditate. Make sure to thoroughly cleanse your crystals beforehand, and take note of any colors you may see in your minds eye, or any emotions you may feel.
2. Crystal Jewelry
Adorn yourself with your favorite crystals! This is my absolute favorite way to use crystals by far. So much so that I have opened an online shop to sell genuine crystal healing jewelry. I would be honored if you checked it out! Crystal jewelry is great because that crystal energy remains within your aura the entire time you’re wearing it. Even your diamond engagement ring can produce healing effects.
3. Crystal Sachet
Another thing I love to do to bring crystal healing into my daily life is to create a little pouch of crystals to carry with me. Right now, I have one crystal representing each chakra, with the exception of the heart and third eye where I have two crystals. Also, one piece of clear quartz. I find this little bag of goodies helps keep me feeling balanced throughout the day.
4. Crystal Grids
Probably one of the most popular use of crystals is to create crystal grids. This is a topic that can be as difficult or as complicated as you’d like, but definitely requires a bit of background knowledge. I recommend checking out Hibiscus Moon’s book on crystal grids so you can be mindful with your grid creation. Once your grid is created, take the time to meditate in front of it every day and tune into its energy. Bonus: this will enhance the intention of the grid!
