So you've purchased your first crystal or you've started to build a collection, but now you need to know how to use them. We have 4 ways that you can make the most of your crystals and incorporate these into your everyday life. By using these methods you can channel your intentions and harness the energy from the crystals.
1. Wearing crystals
The first way in which you can use crystals to manifest your intentions is to wear them daily. You can do this in the form of bracelets and necklaces as these help you to have more contact with a crystal and therefore help you to be more aware of its energy. If you are unsure on which crystals to wear, you could firstly start with wearing your birthstone. Alternatively you may have a particular area of weakness in life that you wish to improve. Finding a crystal bracelet or necklace to help with this will help you to achieve your goal.
We have a wide variety of jewellery designed to help you manifest your goals which you can view here.
2. Carry a crystal with you
The second option is to carry a crystal with you and this is where small tumbles can be really useful! To best bring in this energy, you need to firstly give the crystal a purpose as this helps bring your desired result. Once you have set the intention with your crystal, you can carry this in your pocket or bag to help bring this to you. Whenever you need a reminder of your intention, you can pull this out of your pocket and hold it in your hand. For example, if you are looking to bring abundance into your life, you could use our prosperity zen blend and keep these crystals in your wallet or purse to bring more abundance into your life.
3. Setting intentions and meditation
The most powerful tool in manifesting is meditating with crystals. To use this method you need to choose the crystal you wish to use and set an intention for this. Once you've decided what you want the crystal to aid and enhance you can hold the crystal in your hand. Here you will focus on your intention and repeat the goal aloud or silently multiple times.
4. Keep them close by
Placing your crystals nearby is a great way to surround yourself with their energy and continuously remind yourself what you are working towards. You could keep these next to your bed or on your desk at work, anywhere that you spend a lot of time. These can then be used as a visual reminder everytime that they catch your eye. For example you may set a piece of amethyst near you with the intention of calming you when you are stressed. Then when you are feeling stressed at work, you can look at your crystal and reconnect with a calmer mind.
A popular choice is using this method to aid sleep. Many choose to keep a small crystal in their pillow or next to their bed to aid a restful nights sleep. You could also choose to wear a bracelet to promote this too!
Now you know the different ways in which you can use your crystals, it's time to highlight that on top of using your crystals, you will need to begin to cleanse and charge your crystals. Crystals are like sponges and will soak up energy around them, so it's important to keep these cleansed and full of good energy. You can do this in a few ways which we outline in our "Introduction To Crystal Cleansing" blog. This outlines cleaning them in water, salt and other options. If its a full moon, you can also opt to laying them on your windowsill to charge during the night.
