Selecting Your Crystal
Choosing the right crystal may seem a bit of a daunting task as there are so many to choose from; some that have similar qualities and attributes, and others with energies of the total opposite. All crystals and gemstones are attuned to a particular resonance and have their own attributes and properties. (Within this site you will find the meanings and healing properties and attributes of all crystals).
Crystals attract and repel us. Trust your intuition and feel which crystal resonates with your own vibration. You can simply pass your hand over the crystal to see if you can feel a subtle energy connection with it. You may feel a small change or ‘shock’, or feel a twitching or pulsing on your skin, fingers or hands. You could feel sensations of cold or hot or a flush or wave of energy.
If still unsure of which crystal to select, choose Clear Quartz as this is a crystal that is able to be programmed to perform almost any function, and is known as a ‘Master Healer’.
Cleansing Your Crystal
It is essential to purify your crystal before and after use, as this ensures that any residual negative energies or disharmonies are removed. It also fills your crystal with positive energies.
Smudging is an ancient form of purification for your crystal, yourself and for your healing and/or meditation space. Allow the smoke to waft around the crystal/s in order to remove residual negative disharmonies. If indoors when smudging, keep a window open so that the negative, stagnant energies can escape.
Sound can also be used to cleanse and purify your crystal. This allows you to cleanse many crystals at once. Use a crystal singing bowl, small Tibetan cymbals (ting-shaw), a tuning fork or a bell to make the right vibrational sound to purify your crystal.
Caring For Your Crystal
Do not allow others to wear or touch your personal crystals or jewellery as this will result in them becoming contaminated with foreign vibrations which may not resonate with or be compatible with your energy field. If someone else handles your personal crystals, take steps to cleanse and purify them as soon as possible.
Crystals imbue us with positive vibrations that resonate with our body and soul, mind and spirit. Store your crystals with care and love.
