If you’re new to working with crystals either for healing or energy management, then this article will provide you with all the information you need to get started. We’re going to cover the basics such as what crystals are and how they work in our favor. We’ll then take a look at managing your crystals. This will include what to do in the event of a broken crystal and how to recharge them. Not to mention how to use healing crystals on a day to day basis. So let’s take a look at the basics of healing crystals.
The Basics of Healing Crystals
Healing crystals (sometimes referred to as spiritual crystals or angels crystals) are simply what the name would suggest: crystals which you would use for healing.
You’re probably wondering how this process works. In simple terms, healing crystals are energy hubs. They naturally regenerate positive energy over time and can be charged with certain types of energy when necessary.
We can then use this energy provided by the crystals in a number of ways which we will explore in a moment. Due to the many numbers of ways we can make use of crystals, it’s often necessary to recharge them. So let’s take a look at the simplest ways.
Recharging your Crystals
There are a couple of simple ways you can recharge your crystal. You may choose one over the other depending on the sort of energy you’d prefer to receive from your crystals. As you learn how to charge crystals, you also, in essence, learn how to program crystals.
When it comes to charging your crystals, one of the simplest, yet most powerful methods is using sunlight. This natural energy hub is constantly releasing energy.
To charge your crystal, simply leave it in direct sunlight for a few days. You can leave it for longer but your crystal will charge very quickly through sunlight and will reach a point where it will be fully charged.
If you wish to charge your spiritual crystals with natural Earth energy, you’re going to have to bury it. Of course, you don’t want your crystal being damaged by nature so it’s always best to wrap your crystal in some sort of cloth and then place it in a box.
You can then bury the box which will A) protect your crystal from damage and B) Make it easier to find again. Don’t worry about the box deflecting energy, if you leave your crystal buried for a week or more, it will definitely be recharged.
It goes without saying that if you’re trying to discover how to cleanse crystals, there’s really no better method than washing them with water. Not only does this clean them, allowing for more efficient energy release but it also charges them. Ideally, you want to use natural water.
You could either collect water from a stream or lake or simply take your crystals with you and bathe them in the water. If this isn’t an option for you, don’t be afraid to run them under the tap or alternatively, use some salt water.
What to do with Broken Crystals?
Some crystals are more prone to damage than others. Whether you have angel crystal quartz or something else entirely, it’s likely that your crystal will become damaged sooner or later.
So what should you do? Well, don’t worry too much about it. Crystals will often break of their own accord. This can be due to a number of reasons: they may have over-charged, they may be under-charged or they may have simply expired.
Just because a crystal is broken doesn’t mean you should throw it in the trash. If the crystal has broken into shards then you can always return it to the Earth.
If the crystal was a wand and has snapped in half, then you now have two smaller crystals. You can still use them in the exact same way. You’ll find that the area where the crystal broke is cleaner and clearer than the rest of it. So let’s take a look at how to use healing stones or crystals in your day to day life.
Using Healing Crystals
When it comes to using your healing crystals, there is a wide range of options to choose from. Some are a little more complicated or time-consuming than other so we’ll focus on the basic ones, to begin with.
Using healing crystals during meditation is an incredibly useful practice. You’ll find that the crystals help you to focus on your meditation and this is even truer for healing practices.
The charged up crystals will slowly release their energy into your body and allow your vibrational energy level to increase naturally. You don’t have to do anything incredibly complicated. You can simply hold the crystal in one or both your hands or wear it as a form of jewelry. Speaking of which…
Wear your Crystals
This is a great option if your crystal has broken. You can simply transform your crystals into jewelry that you wear on a day to day basis.
This will naturally increase your energy and if you take some time to charge your crystal with protective energy (perhaps with the help of your angels) then you’ll receive these benefits whenever you wear your crystal.
Decorate your Home
Our final method for making use of your healing crystals is to place them around your home or workplace. Not only do they look beautiful but they serve a more functional purpose.
The energy will be slowly released into their environment i.e. your home. This balances the energy and works as a repellent for negative energy.
