A few ways to use your crystals

There are many ways to use your crystals. We will cover a few ways below and an example of how to use them.

  • Meditation

During your meditation you can hold a crystal in your hand, close your eyes and feel the energy of the crystal. For instance if you want to feel more grounded you might choose the Hematite crystal.

  • To promote healing in the body.

You can place crystals on the body to promote healing. They can be used alone or with a healing method such as Reiki, meditation, or other methods.

  • Carry Crystals with you

You can carry crystals with you in your pocket, purse, or wear as jewelry. For example if you suffer from anxiety you might choose a quartz crystal to carry to help relieve your stress and anxiety.

  • Raise the vibrational energy of your home.

Just sitting them in the room changes the energy. You can choose crystals that cleanse the room and that also raise the vibration of your home. Just find crystals that resonate with you and your family. Amethyst is known for its positive energy and great for sacred spaces.

  • Garden

I love to put the crystals in the pots with my plants. The plants love them too. Clear Quartz is a great one to put in the dirt.

  • Sleep

Putting a crystal on your night stand can help you sleep better. Here are a few.

  • Clear Quartz
  • Hematite
  • Jade

There are many others and I am sure you will find what works for you.

These are some basics on crystals. There are many ways to use the crystals and we will dig deeper in another post. Have fun exploring.
