Crystals and stones have been incorporated in healing rituals throughout history. Crystals hold powerful, healing vibrations which are used to ease worries, bring luck, stimulate chakras, and enhance intuition.
When a charged crystal is placed close to the body the energy waves or frequency of the body tries to tune into the crystal, which in turn helps to stimulate healing.
To begin a crystal or stone healing set your intention upon the crystal. Hold your crystal, quiet your mind, and offer your intention to the crystal such as, I wish to use this crystal to help stimulate the healing of……
After your intentions are set, allow your intuition to guide you in choosing the best method of charging your stone. We offer a series common charging practices below to help you get started.
Some crystals and stones are naturally charging such as selenite and quartz. You can place other crystals on top of these cleansing stones for 24 hours or until their energy is purified.
Alternatively, you can use smaller pieces of cleansing crystals such as quartz and use them to surround the crystal you want to charge in a circle. This is particularly beneficial for yellow, orange, red, grey and white stones.
Bury your crystal into the ground for 24 hours or up to a week, depending on the energy you want to infuse. This is particularly beneficial for earthy stones that are dark in color such as black, green, brown, or deep reds and greys.
Place your crystal in a healthy garden or in a flower pot with lots of healthy, fresh leaves growing. Charge it up for 24 hours. This is particularly beneficial for green, white, orange, yellow or pink colored stones.
Charging with Sound
Reiki or sound bowls can also help charge crystals with positive energy. Simply practice the reiki over your crystal. You can also create a sound bath using singing bowls or gongs. This is particularly beneficial for charging blue, purple, pink and white stones.
Infusing Stones with Sun or Moon light
Crystals can be charged using the rays of the sun or moon as they both have the power to be very energizing. This method can also be adopted to cleanse your crystals of negative energy. Place your crystal in the direct line of moon or sun light for 24 hours. Placing your crystals out on a new or full Moon can also be a more potent option. Place your stones or crystals in the rays of a Full Moon to signify endings or a New Moon for beginnings.
