Healing crystals are now reaching the masses and helping many people from different backgrounds to set intentions, tune in to the Universe, and focus on attracting what they want from life. They are having a moment, and it seems everyone – from famous people like Katy Perry and Miranda Kerr to ordinary people – has recently started dishing on their high-vibe collections.
Using crystals to protect your energy can be fun and a simple and beautiful way to take your self-care game to the following level. Knowing how they can help attract abundance and good energy is one thing, but understanding how to incorporate them into your everyday routine is completely another.
These gems have thousands, and sometimes millions of years of history stored off the Earth within them so that you can harness them to step into your most excellent self. But, as with any other healing practice, diet, or exercise, a crystal routine that works for one person does not necessarily mean 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 social anxiety, absorb other people’s energy or work in a toxic environment, this will be a great and descript way to protect yourself. My favourite protective crystals are Obsidian, Black Tourmaline, Hematite, and Carnelian.
The more contact you have with crystal, the more aware you will be of its energy. You can carry the crystal in your pocket or purse and pull it out whenever you need to centre yourself or 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 to raise good vibes and create a beautifully decorated place.
Protecting energy that comes into your house is also very important for your energy protection. Particularly, if you work in a toxic environment, this will help you ensure that your negative boss or nosey co-worker’s vibes stay outside 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, making it the perfect addition to your room.
3. Use healing 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, and 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 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 during savasana to encourage a deeper state of healing meditation.
4. Make a beautiful and sacred place and use them for cleansing.
Sacred spaces have quickly become popular and are now crucial components of most yoga and meditation practice spaces. Using crystals in these calming displays adds beautiful earth energy and a peaceful, grounding presence. The crystals will also constantly remind you to reconnect with your intention each time you revisit your space.
When 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 other people’s energy to be released from your energy.
5. Use crystals for healing 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. Bring your crystals into the bath with you for a DIY crystal treatment or let them soak in the water so you can use them to wash your face. The crystal energy will 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. Pick a corresponding stone and place it on your body if you work with a specific chakra. 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 to give your root chakra some grounding energy or place an aventurine over your heart 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. Everyone is so connected with technology, which can be a blessing or a curse. For instance, you will find our article and amazing website on your technology device. But, as you scroll through the pictures or the entire article, you also take in EMF or electromagnetic radiation.
Although we cannot see it, our bodies retail that energy. Placing certain crystals on your laptop, cell phone, and desk will protect your body from that energy. Some crystals great for this purpose are Orgonite, Shungite, Copper and Black Tourmaline.
As mentioned, numerous ways of working with these amazing stones exist. Here, we presented a few that seem fun and can play up their energy.
We have gazed upon the cosmic ocean from our small world for thousands of years. It has been a wonder what it would be like to see it from the outside.
Crafted with the 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.
I hope you enjoy it! (Source)
