Using Crystals

So you have new gemstones/crystals and you don’t know what to do with them. Well, here are a few ideas:

Carry them around in your pockets. Having them on your body will help them help you faster.

Meditate with your crystals. Hold them in your hands if you sit up. Place them on and around your body if you lay flat. Put one on your third eye. Crystals can really amplify a meditation experience.

Sleep with them under your pillow. Specific stones work on specific issues, but you can choose ones that will help you sleep better, remember your dreams, and/or astral travel.

Sleep with them on your bedside table. Again, you have to set intentions and choose the right stone for this, but this is one of my favorite ways to work with stones…especially the ones that increase my contact with the spirit world.

Bathe with them. Want a different bathing experience? Put some stones in your bath water…they will help you relax and induce a state of meditation. You might get some interesting ideas while in the tub! BUT, be careful in choosing which stones to bathe with. Some, like selenite, will melt in water!

If you garden, you can plant certain stones along with your seeds/bulbs/etc. This will make your plants happy and healthy.

Similarly, you can plant stones outside of your house to create peace/love/happiness/whatever intention you set.

AND, you can place stones in the outer corners of the inside of your home for the same purpose(s). This is called gridding.

You can also wave stones around your body, especially the massage wands, to move energy around. Sometimes the stagnation of energy can make us uncomfortable, and just waving the stones around can make us feel good.

One thing I noticed years ago was that when I took stones into a staff meeting and laid them on the table we sat around, everyone got along much better–finally, no yelling!

You can do nearly anything with your crystals. Use your imagination!

You’ll know you’re doing the right thing when it feels right.

Also, listen to your crystals. It sounds a bit crazy, but just listen. They’ll tell you what to do with them.
