To get the most out of your crystals, you need to find those that are truly yours. Each person has a unique energy frequency and the secret to effective crystal working is to find the crystals that best respond to you.
The following text is taken from my book
Crystal Basics: How to Use Crystals and Their Energy to Enhance Your Life (Hay House Basics) which guides you through choosing, attuning to and using crystals.
Everyone who is interested in crystals has had the experience of a crystal ‘winking’ at them. You go into a shop or trawl the internet and a crystal catches your eye. This is the one for you. It is not necessarily the biggest, prettiest or priciest. It may be a raw lump, tumbled or faceted. But it is the most potent for you personally.
So, go into a shop and see what calls to you. These eager beings have been longing to work with you. Now is the time. You can also use my Crystal Wisdom Oracle cards,
which allow you to feel the energies from a photograph, or the photographs in 101 Power Crystals, or look at the pictures on www.angeladditions.co.uk or www.exquisitecrystals.com and see which crystals call to you. You can dowse, or look at what you already have in your collection. But whatever you do, first open the chakras in your palms and set your root in place.
There is one simple thing that enables the maximum contact with crystals, and that is opening the energy sensitive chakras in the centre of your palms. Although these chakras are little known, they are what make healing and feeling crystal energies so potent.
Exercise: Opening the palm chakras
The second thing that makes working with crystal energies easier – and helps you to feel secure – is to open the Earth Star chakra, or energy centre, beneath your feet. This
chakra helps you to grow a ‘root’ that goes deep down into the Earth and grounds your energies. Earth energy travels up this root and healing energy goes down through
it, setting up a circuit that helps you channel subtle crystal energy into the physical dimension and makes your crystal work more power-full.
Exercise: Opening the Earth Star chakra
Open the Earth Star chakra whenever you work with crystal energies.
One way to start out is to think about what you want your crystal to do for you. Do you want it to enhance your environment? Heal you? Show you the future? These are
some of the things you might want from your crystal:
All of the above topics are covered in Crystal Basics but the steps to finding the right crystal for you are the same in every case.
Now you’ve identified what you want your crystal to do, try the following exercises to help you choose the right crystal.
Exercise: Exercising your intuition
Exercise: The power of touch
Exercise: Choosing in the comfort of your home
Exercise: Let your eyes do the choosing
Dowsing is an excellent way to choose crystals. There are two methods, one using a pendulum and the other using your fingers.
Exercise: Finding your pendulum
Pendulums are crafted from a variety of crystals or woods in different sizes and weights. Choose one that interacts well with your energy to make dowsing more productive. Good crystal shops never mind if you try out several before buying.
To use a pendulum you need to establish your ‘yes’, ‘no’ and ‘maybe’. Once you know your ‘yes’ and ‘no’ indications (see below), hold the pendulum over a crystal and ask, ‘Is this the right crystal for me?’ If the answer is a rather half-hearted ‘yes’ or ‘maybe’, ask, ‘Is there a better one?’ If the answer is ‘yes’, check out whether it’s another crystal of the same type or whether a different type would be better.
Exercise: Pendulum dowsing – establishing ‘yes’ and ‘no’
Finger dowsing is a quick and easy alternative to pendulum dowsing. It gives you an instant, strong ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.
Exercise: Finger dowsing
Before going any further, take note of one of the fundamental principles of crystal work: First cleanse your crystals:
This is a fundamental rule of working with crystals. No matter whether you’re working with a favourite crystal you’ve had for a long time or one you’ve just bought home from a shop, a crystal need cleansing before use. And it needs cleansing after use too. People say, ‘This crystal used to work, but now it’s stopped.’ When asked, ‘Have you cleaned it?’, they look perplexed. To keep a crystal working at optimum level, it needs regular cleansing and re-energizing. This is especially the case with Shungite, which needs very frequent cleansing, or crystal jewellery, which will be working for you whether you intend it to or not, so you may as well help it along. It will be collecting energies and will transmute them and pass on its properties to you as long as it’s kept clean. Also note that crystals that are on display need to be cleansed frequently.
Exercise: Cleansing a crystal
Exercise: Feeling the difference
Crystals are very wise beings who see much further than we do, but if you don’t ask one to work with you, how does it know what you want it to do? Having said that, I try not to be too specific, as I feel it restricts the crystal if I only ask from my limited Earth perspective. So I ask for the crystal to work for my highest good and that of other
people, and to do what is appropriate for my personal and spiritual growth, and I add ‘this or something better’ or ‘as appropriate’ to requests. There are times when I feel stuck in a situation I’d much rather get out of, but if there’s something I need to learn from it, or a gift I need to gain, scrambling out too quickly may lose me that opportunity. Therefore, I would rather have a crystal support me as I go through the necessary challenge and out the other side.
Exercise: Programming and charging
Each crystal has its own unique vibration – its frequency or wavelength. These frequencies range from earthy to extremely high, and some crystals combine both, grounding the energies. A high-vibration crystal isn’t better than an earthy one, it’s simply different. Each type of crystal has a specific task to do. Finding the appropriate vibration for the work you need a crystal to do helps the crystal to work at optimum efficiency. So, a crystal toolkit of about seven or eight basic crystals with an additional few high-vibration ones will be just right. You might like to purchase my Crystal Healing Pack, which has crystals for each of the chakras, and add one or two high-vibration stones of your choice.
Enjoy your crystals!
