So you have purchased or have been gifted a beautiful crystal, but what now?
Crystals have been used for thousands of years as ancient forms of medicine. Throughout time, crystal popularity has soared. But unfortunately, many people believe that there is insufficient scientific evidence proving their healing abilities. Where people go wrong with this belief is they have not given crystal healing a chance. They do not hold the knowledge and haven't tapped into the power of thought, creating a negative outcome before exploring the practice.
The placebo effect is a genuine thing, strongly supported by research. The power of positive thinking has shown health outcomes in patients who are going through treatments. Don't wait for the crystals to change your beliefs; rather, change your beliefs before tapping into their powers.
Crystals can make a great piece for your space to cleanse energy, but enhancing your relationship with crystals can shift your life. There are many different types of crystals, all holding their own unique healing abilities for the mind, body, and soul. Promoting the flow of energy and removing negative energy from your body and mind, allowing you to reap the benefits physically and emotionally.
The key to enhancing your relationship with crystals is firstly uncovering your intentions. Before selecting a crystal, what do you want to achieve with it? This allows you to establish a great relationship. Complete some research of what crystal holds, what healing ability, and which will be best for you. Below are two essentials steps before starting crystal healing practices.
Select your crystal with intuition and intent
It's time to select your crystal as you already have prior thought of what you want to achieve. Whether you have completed some research of crystals healing abilities and know exactly what type of crystal you're after, or want to select your crystal intuitively by feeling a connection.
Cleanse and program your crystal
It is essential to cleanse your crystals from any prior energy. Each transition exposes the stone to energies that may not be aligned with your own. You want to assist the crystal in restoring to its natural state, and there are many practices to achieve this, such as; Full moon ritual cleanse, full moon water cleanse white sage smudge stick, or saltwater for certain crystals.
It's now time to set intentions with the crystal. Take a moment to clear your mind, free from any negativity, and sit with your crystal. Feel the power of the crystal while focusing on the intention; at this moment, you must do what feels important for you. You can repeat affirmations out loud or envision the positive outcome.
Sit in this moment until your body and mind feel ready to move on.
These two steps are crucial before any crystal healing. Once you have completed these, it's time to let the crystal powers work their magic. Some crystal healing practices include:
Meditation with crystals
Creating a crystal grid
Using crystals during yoga
Keeping them in your space
Reiki energy healing with crystals
Carrying them nearby for protection
Now that you hold the knowledge don't forget about your crystals; keep them close, and incorporate working with them in your everyday life. And remember, if a placebo works, a placebo works.
