Crystals 101

Updated: Jun 5, 2022

Working with crystals is purely trial and error. Despite a specific crystals properties, one crystal might work better than the other for you. However, you were drawn to them for a reason. Whether you believe in the metaphysical properties of crystals or are looking for beautiful decor and want to know my beliefs and opinions on working with crystal, I have some information for you. Note that I am writing based off my experience and knowledge, and it is okay if your experience is not the same as mine. Methods that work for me may not be the best for others and vice versa. Experiment and find what works for you.

Since I was a little kid, I would collects rocks and shells from the beach and not until a few years ago, I realized I am very sensitive to healing crystals energy. Whether or not you can feel your crystals energy, your energy fields are interacting. The ability to feel and read your crystals energy will develop overtime.

Where did Healing Crystals originate?

The powers of crystals have been documented as early as 4500 BC. The Ancient Sumerians hold the first historical reference to the use of crystals in magic formulas. Crystal origins can be tied back to Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, etc. Crystals have also been used in Chinese medicine dating back at least 5000 years. The word crystal comes from the Ancient Greek word, ‘krystallos’, meaning ice.

How do Healing Crystals Work?

Quantum physicists discovered that atoms are made up of energy, constantly vibrating and radiating their own unique energy signature. Meaning everything is energy and vibrates at different frequencies. We each have our own unique vibrational frequency. The interaction between different vibrational frequencies affect your energy. No matter what frequency you are at, your vibration is easily affected by the outside world.

On the other hand, crystal energy is extremely stable and does not change. Crystals vibrate at high frequencies and their energy can not be affected by anything lower than its vibration making them extremely powerful. Every crystal vibrates at different frequencies, promoting different properties, all that raise your vibration. Based on this, specific crystals can assist you in healing and manifesting your specific needs.

How do you know which crystal is right for you?

Choosing a new crystal can be overwhelming, especially if you have so many options. I suggest picking what you are first drawn to.What catches your eye? Let your intuition decide for you. After read the properties and most likely they will resonate with your needs. In the shop, there is a description of each individual crystal and its properties to help you choose your crystal based on your needs. If you are still stuck on what crystals to start with, I recommend Satin Spar Selenite and Clear Quartz as great beginner stones.

How to choose a crystal based on the chakras?

The colors we see are different light frequencies. Purple has the highest vibrational frequency, next up blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. These colors also correlate to our chakras (we have seven main chakras, energy points in our body, with 114 total chakras in the human body). For example, the Root Chakra or Muladhara corresponds with the color red, both aligning with that vibrational frequency. Our chakras can become imbalanced throughout our lives based on different experiences and traumas; Crystals can assist to activate and return our energy centers to the frequency they are meant to vibrate at. If you are trying to choose a crystal to help heal a certain chakra, you can usually look at the color to help you decide. I do not want to go too deep into chakra healing because it is not part of my religion, but I highly encourage you to research about this topic.

How do we know the properties of each crystal?

You can always look up the properties of crystals on Google, but in my opinion it is a lot easier to trust and believe in your crystal when you have an idea of why it does what it does. A lot of the properties you read of is from our ancestors; From them using their energy and intuition to work with a crystal and figure out how it benefits them. These benefits stuck around when groups of people agree on the properties. This brings me to, our energy and intuition. As we continue to discover new crystals, energy workers will work with the crystal and determine the common benefits. This ability to read and feel your crystals energy will develop as you continue to work with crystals. Next, is color. As I talked about before the color of your crystal can correlate to different chakras and from this you can pull out some of the crystals properties. Fourth is location of discovery & fifth is stories and myths behind your crystal. For example, Lemurian Quartz. The spiritual civilization in Lemuria discovered the Lemurian Quartz crystal & preserved their ancient wisdom and knowledge in the crystal to later be discovered. That is just a short overview to give you an example that the location of discovery and the stories behind your crystal can give you information on the benefits. The last topic I am going to talk about is the chemical makeup of your crystal. For example, Lepidolite. Lepidolite has a high content of Lithium. Lithium is a chemical given as medicine to people with depression, mood disorders, etc. This tells us Lepidolite is good for calming, can aid symptoms of depression and mood swings, etc.

How do you cleanse your crystals?

Whether you want to cleanse your crystals or not is 100% up to you. Personally, I rarely feel the need to cleanse my personal crystals, because they are already aligned with my energy. I have decided that I will not be cleansing crystals before I ship them out. This is because some peoples religion restricts them from buying crystals that have been blessed in anyway and I want everyone to have access to these healing tools. All orders are sent out with an incense stick, so if you feel you want to cleanse your crystals you have the materials to do so. The purpose of cleansing your crystals is to remove energies left from someone else or any lingering negative energies. There are numerous ways to cleanse your crystals if you feel it is necessary. You may use herbs or incense to smoke cleanse by using intentions and running your crystal through the smoke, bury your crystals in the earth, submerge your crystals in water or hold them under running water, use frequencies or singing bowls to sound cleanse, use a cleansing oil (available in my shop), use other crystals such as selenite or larger crystal clusters, etc. Your journey is personal and there are no rules. These are only here for your desires.

How do you set intentions and charge your crystals?

There are numerous ways to charge and set intention for your crystals, but it may be simpler than you think. Crystals have many properties; Setting intentions allows you to highlight what your specific needs are based on their properties. Setting your intention is as easy as grounding, visualizing your intention, and saying it out loud. You can also sleep with them to better connect and align your energy with your crystal.

Charging your crystals reactivates the crystals energies and gives their energy a boost. This is 100% optional. You can charge your crystals by placing them in the moonlight, placing them in the sunlight, burying them in the dirt to be charged with the energies of the earth, or make a crystal charging station using herbs or Himalayan salt.

How do we use them?

If you take care of your crystals, they will take care of you. Crystals are tools, meant to form a connection with and use to assist to raise consciousness. Crystals can be used in a countless number of ways which include, but is not limited to:

  • meditation or yoga practices

  • create a crystal grid with intention

  • place in specific areas to amplify their energies

  • add them to your bath or shower rituals

  • to aid manifestations

  • place them around your home, in your purse, on you or as jewelry to embrace their energy daily

  • reiki energy healing

How do crystals aid manifestations?

You attract people, things, etc. of the same energetic frequency. Manifesting is raising your energy field and putting yourself in the vibrational frequency of whatever your desires are. Crystals can assist you to do this by helping you raise your vibrational state to fit your desires.
