How to Use Your Crystals
Hello, lets start by saying there are no real rules. How you practice with your crystals is as much a reflection of you as the gems you choose, or are drawn to.
Practice with crystals can be as complicated as the mind can conceive or as simple as one feels to act. I’d suggest starting as simple as can be and let your intuition be your guide.
Here are typical methods:
Simply, have and hold your selected gem, carry it with you with as long as you feel you need to. Let your intuition be your guide on the selection and how long the crystal is with you.
- Keep in your pocket or on your person.
- Place by your bed
- Wear as jewellery
- Place in a sacred space
Trust your intuition and go!
- Healing Modalities
- Qigong, Tai Chi, Yoga
- Magical Practice
Barriers of the Conscious Mind
Focused Mind – Intention
Now the merits of this approach can get somewhat philosophical, but I'm not sure that matters, as I'll redirect you to the above “How you practice with your crystals is as much a reflection of you as the gems you choose”.
But it is the possibly the more popular approach by practitioners.
If these are options are for you, then I wont attempt to educate you on any Particular Healing Modalities, Magical practice, Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga here. I'll simply state that crystals and gems are often included into the lifestyles and practices of these interests.
I will however, comment on meditation processes briefly.
Simple Meditations with Crystals
Meditations are wonderful methods of increasing our self-awareness and mindfulness.
Regardless of your preferred meditation practice, crystals can be a great addition, to assist in improving the ability to gain mental clarity, encouraging a climate of safety, love, acceptance, compassion and even emptiness if you going for the zero point moment of pure transcendence.
In addition, if you’re going for that zero point, that’s the perfect point, to insert your crystal into the meditation to achieve your intention, with a mind as quiet as that, it’s the ultimate place to insert energetic intention, with nothing left to hold it back and the universe to fuel it!
Simply select a crystal, that suits your given need and hold that gem as you see fit, whilst performing your favorite meditation.
That's the simplest method to begin with.
