Three simple steps to start using healing crystals.
Healing crystals are believed to have healing powers because of their powerful energy vibrations that are literally connected to the environment from which they come. Science tells us that everything is made from atoms and energy that is neither created nor destroyed, so it’s not too far fetched to believe that the same types of material found in things that power our world in a practical way (buildings, technology, aircraft, and more) can function in ways that power our mind, body and spirit in both a physical and spiritual way.
There have been numerous scientific studies done about the function of crystals for practical and metaphysical usage. One of the first pieces of scientific evidence relating to the power of crystals was done by IBM scientist Marcel Vogel. Under a microscope, Vogel found that growing crystals took the form of whatever he was thinking about. He hypothesized that these vibrations are the result of the constant assembling and disassembling of bonds between molecules. He also tested the metaphysical power of quartz crystal and proved that rocks can store thoughts similar to how tapes use magnetic energy to record sound.
Step One: Choose Your Crystal
The crystals will choose you.
Each crystal has a unique vibration energy that works to clear and ward off negative energy. Crystal experts often say that the crystal chooses you instead of the other way around. You’ll want to browse crystals either in person or online and see what appeals to you. It could be a certain color or pattern of the crystal that attracts your attention or it could be something deeper that is pulling you in. Either way, go for it!
Step 2: Think About and Craft Your Intention
What is it that you want to manifest?
Thoughts create vibrations throughout the universe, which makes setting intentions a powerful tool for achieving happiness, well-being and balance. Intentions are like magnets. They attract what will make them come true. Create your intention by setting goals that align with your values, aspirations, and purpose. A thoughtful and specific intention is a great starting point for healing crystals because specific intentions instilled into your daily thought patterns also become part of its energy.
Step 3: Program Your Crystals
Programming your crystal is simple. The first step is to cleanse your crystal. You can choose your preferred method of clearing by what resonates with you the most. You can immerse your crystals in the smoke of burning sage, or you can place your crystals in direct sunlight for a few hours to recharge them with the sun’s energy. Next, hold the charged crystal in your hand. While breathing calmly think of your intentions. Ask the crystal to clear its energy and accept and hold your intentions that you will then speak in your mind.
Now that you know the three simple steps to use healing crystals, you can speak good intentions into your crystals anytime you want to recharge your desires. Have another intention? Cleanse your crystal as you did before with burning sage or sunlight, and pre-program your crystal for new desires and intentions.
