Healing crystals are now reaching the masses and helping a lot of people from different backgrounds to set intentions, tune in to the Universe, as well as focus on attracting what they want from life. They are having a moment, and it seems like everyone – from famous people like Katy Perry and Miranda Kerr to ordinary people - has recently started dishing on their high-vibe collections.
Using crystals for protecting your energy can be fun, as well as a simple and beautiful way to take your self-care game to the following level. Knowing how they can help attract all sorts of abundance and good energy is one thing, but understanding how you can incorporate them in your everyday routine is completely another.
These gems have thousands, and sometimes millions of years of the history stored of the Earth within them so that you can harness to step into your most excellent self. But, as with any other healing practice, diet, or exercise, a crystal routine which works for one person does not necessarily mean that it will work for another.
1. Carry a crystal around with you.
Everyone should carry a crystal or a worry stone around with them. If you tend to have some social anxiety, absorb the energy of other people or work in a toxic environment, this will be a great and descript way to protect yourself. Some of my favorite protective crystals are Obsidian, Black Tourmaline, Hematite, and Carnelian.
The more contact you have with crystal, the more aware you are going to be of its energy. You can carry the crystal in your pocket or purse, and pull it out every time when you will need to center yourself or to bring your attention back to the intention on which you were working.
2. Display crystals in your home.
Aside from attracting different sorts of positive energy, crystals also act as the art of nature. You should place crystals around the entrances of your home. Use them throughout your space in order to raise good vibes and create a beautifully decorated place.
Protecting energy which comes into your house is very important for your energy protection too. Particularly, if you are working in a toxic environment, this is going to help you make sure that your negative boss or nosey co-worker’s vibes stay outside of your home.
Because of this, healing crystals were popping up in several home décor magazines. Larger crystals make for jaw-dropping statement pieces which work to shift the energy of a space. For instance, Amethyst dispels negative energy and emits positive vibes so that it will be the perfect addition to your room.
3. Use crystals during meditation and yoga.
Another way to incorporate crystals into your life is to use them in meditation and yoga. You can program your rock and use it to channel your intentions. Sit comfortably, with your back gently supported, hold the crystals in the palm of your hand. Then, shut your eyes and focus on your breath – in and out, in and out.
You can feel like your body is sinking deeper into the earth, in that way creating a grounding effect. You may feel a lightness surround you. Or you may not feel anything right away, as some crystals simply do not resonate.
Keeping crystals on your yoga mat will also help you to create a peaceful space for your practice. You can also place crystals on your body at the time of savasana in order to encourage a deeper state of healing meditation.
4. Make a beautiful and sacred place and use them for cleansing too.
Sacred spaces have quickly become popular, and they are now crucial components of most of the yoga and meditation practice spaces. Using crystals in these calming displays actually adds a beautiful piece of earth energy, as well as brings a peaceful, grounding presence. The crystals will also constantly remind you to reconnect with your intention each time you revisit your space.
When for cleansing, you should wash your hands with salt, as it is a powerfully cleansing and protecting crystal. A practice which you can start is washing your hands at the end of the day with Himalayan Sea Salt. You can crank a few crystals in your hand and ask for the energy of other people to be released from your energy.
5. Use them as the ultimate spa treatment and place them on your body.
Crystals have the power to infuse a lot of self-care routines with healing properties. For a DIY crystal treatment, you should bring your crystals into the bath with you or let them soak in the water so that you can use them to wash your face. The crystal energy is going to have a peaceful and restorative effect on your spa day at home.
Also, putting crystals on your body has a completely different effect than simply holding them. If you work with a specific chakra, you should pick a stone which corresponds to that chakra and places it on your body. This will serve to stir the energy around that chakra, as well as bring up the emotions which you need to heal.
For this purpose, you can use smoky quartz, in order to give your root chakra some grounding energy or place an aventurine over your heart in order to open your heart chakra for receiving and giving love. You can place the quartz crystal above your head.
6. Use crystals around technology.
There are crystals for your cell phone/laptop. Every one of us is so connected with technology, which can be a blessing or a curse. For instance, you are finding our article and amazing website on your technology device. But, as you are scrolling through the pictures or through the entire article, you’re also taking in EMF or electromagnetic radiation.
Although we cannot see it, out bodies retail that energy. Placing certain crystals on your laptop, cell phone and desk is going to protect your body from that energy. Some crystals great for this purpose are Orgonite, Shungite, Copper and Black Tourmaline.
As we already mentioned, there are numerous ways of working with these amazing stones. Here, we presented you a few of them which seem fun and which can play up their energy.
For thousands of years, we have gazed upon the cosmic ocean from our small world. It has been a wonder what it would be like to see it from the outside.
Crafted with utmost skill to model the planets revolving around our sun, hold this mesmerizing crystal ball in your hand and gaze upon the beauty of our solar system. Revel at the infinite possibilities it offers. Have an open mind, free from limitations and let your dreams flow on.
Hope you enjoy!
