CHOOSING YOUR CRYSTALS
Welcome aboard the Crystal Magic train! It's time to get started on your crystal healing journey. But there's so many, how do you choose? Each stone has their own shape, color, chemistry and unique energetic vibration that we can apply to different areas of our life. They connect us to universal energy as soon as we come into contact with them. First, think about your intention and the energy you want to embody. Is there a particular chakra you're needing to work on? Are you in need of a confidence boost or perhaps more focus at work? Explore the unique properties of crystals as well as the chakras and elements they are affiliated with. Decide on the minerals that best suit your intention and goals. Let your intuition be your guide when choosing your gemstones, as it is often said that "you don't choose a crystal, the crystal chooses you".
PROGRAMMING YOUR STONES
Think of gemstones as the physical form of our thoughts and desires. Our thoughts are powerful on their own, and crystals act as a way to tangibly connect to the positive energy and thoughts we want to embody and amplify. You can manifest new levels of living - strength, love, forgiveness, abundance, etc by "programming" your crystals to your energy and directing that energy to your goal.
Before using your new stones, you'll want to give it an energetic reset. Cleanse your crystal with the smoke of Palo Santo, Cedar or Sage, or lay your crystals under the light of the full moon. Now that your stone is cleansed, it is ready to store your intentions. and attune to your intention. Hold it in your hand, close your eyes, and speak your intention either out loud or in your mind. Visualize what you are manifesting, and imagine the crystal absorbing your energy.
USING YOUR STONES
Now that your energy and intention has been stored in the physical form of a gemstone, you can keep it close by in your pocket or purse for daily support and for your moon ceremonies and rituals. Crystal grids are a powerful way to amplify the energies of your gemstones for manifestation work. The more you work with minerals and their magic, the more you’ll learn about the properties and how you most enjoy using them.
