How do crystals work?
Crystals can store and transmit energy just like any living thing. In fact, crystals are alive, each one resonating a unique geometric pattern – a frequency. Crystals have an inherent, incorruptible, radiant energy that works like a tuning fork. As human beings, we are also resonating energy patterns. When we feel out of balance, it is our energy/pattern/frequency that is off. We can use crystals to rebalance our energetic pattern.
Admittedly, this concept is a little strange at first. But here are some examples: Has anyone’s bad mood ever rubbed off on you? Or in reverse, ever felt elated from being around someone who is “full of energy” or in love? Have you ever experienced euphoria at a music festival? This is what I mean by the ability of living things to store and transmit energy.
How to use crystals
* The best thing about adding crystals to your holistic lifestyle is that it’s really easy. Of course you can meditate with them and really get into it, but as a beginner you don’t need to do much other than have them next to you. Just being near their beautiful, harmonious energy is enough.
* You can keep small gemstones in your pocket, under your pillow, larger ones on your bedside table, in your kitchen, etc.
* When you’re feeling low, take 5 minutes in a quiet place and hold your favourite crystal close to your heart.
There are a few things you need to do when you bring a crystal into your home.
1) Cleanse: Wash your crystals under running tap water, gently pat dry.
2) Program: Different crystals are good for different things. For example Clear Quartz is known as the Master Healer, and the Stone of Power. Using your mind, ask your chosen crystal to help, support, nurture, and heal whatever it is that is bothering you.
3) Charge: Charge your crystals by sunlight and by moonlight. Leave them in the open air during the day and over night, preferably under a full moon. It’s a good habit to repeat this process every couple of months, or more.
There have been times when holding my little treasures has made me feel better within a few minutes. It might all be in my mind. I can’t prove my crystals beam an energetic field of peace, love and healing harmony. But I feel like they do. And to be frank, that’s good enough for me. Although I enjoy crystals, I have found prayer to be the most effective healer of all.
In an age where prescription pain-killers/anti-depressant, and addiction are at an all-time high, I believe stillness and prayer are a welcome alternative.
My experience has also led to experimentation in beauty formulations. I tried a few different things before landing on what I believe is pretty special. Sea Quartz, is a 100% natural, vegan cleanser made with 98% edible ingredients like spirulina, turmeric and coconut milk. But what makes is really special is that each jar contains a full carat of Clear Quartz crystals. Talk about amplifying your beauty ritual!
