The Power of Crystals
I like to remind people that crystals are a symbol of immortality. They were created millions of years ago from the womb of Mother Earth. I think of crystals as a timeless database of knowledge because they gather in them all the information they are exposed to. Crystals have the ability to absorb information - whether from a severe weather pattern, or the experience of an ancient ceremony - and can also pass it to anyone who comes into contact with them.
We must remember, everything that exists seeks balance.
So, what your crystal retains, your crystal must release.
Crystals exist for a purpose, just like you do. Crystals are meant to work in harmonious communication with the energies around them. Since we are made up of energy, the crystals have the ability to respond to our energetic field in 3 ways:
Clearing: Healing crystals can absorb unwanted energies from your body and therefore release you from what no longer serves you.
Energising: Crystals can also enter your energetic field and push energy into your body, mind, and spirit. The crystal gathers energy from the quantum field and sends it into your energy field.
Balancing: Sometimes your electromagnetic field can be imbalanced - too much or too little of one thing. Healing crystals have the ability to restore balance in your body, mind, and spirit.
Using your crystals
Meditate with your crystals
I invite you to hold your crystal in the palm of your hand, observe it and intentionally accept receiving its positive energy or to accept receiving balance or release. Do not worry if you are not certain of what you need. The intelligence of your body will tell your crystal, and your crystal can sense what is out of balance, needs release, or restoration.
You can meditate with your crystals. Close your eyes and willingly choose to give your thoughts a rest. During meditation, crystals can help you intuitively receive insights.

Sleep with your crystals
Intentionally choose one or two crystals and place them under your pillow or your bedside table. Let them help you during the night. Some crystals can bring insights and advice to your dreams. Others can clear your mind, body, and spirit. When you sleep you are more open to receiving energy as your mind isn’t in the way.
Move them around your body
You can absolutely use crystal wands to remove energies - from your head to your toes. If you feel like you hold onto other people’s energies, when you take a shower, use your healing crystals to remove what does not belong to you. Simply move the crystal around your body over your skin. Water is cleansing and if you add the cleansing powers of crystals, you will feel much lighter.
Place them in your home or car
Crystals can protect your space and your energy. There are a lot of people on the road and sometimes they can be very impatient and angry with the traffic. This can cause accidents or simply a lot of honking that can be filled up with negative energies. Crystals can help prevent those energies entering your field. You can use it the same way in your home. Crystals can also be used to empower an intention. For example, I am calmer on the road.
A crystal is alive
Think of a crystal as a person. Smile to your crystals. Talk to your crystals like you would a person who is helping you and thank them for the positive energies they bring you or the unwanted energies they release you from.
Crystals don’t like to be confined because it traps their energy, so it is best not to combine them in bowls. They like to be in spaces where they can breathe.
I love using my crystals during my crystal reiki sessions. For so many of the reasons mentioned above, they are the perfect addition to an energy healing. They aid in the healing of the emotional, mental, and physical body. I act as a channel for this healing energy and, together with the power of the crystals, I read the patient's energy and direct it to bring benefit and relief for my patients.

Cleansing your crystals
To ensure your crystals are most effective and powerful, it is extremely important to clean them correctly and regularly. When you receive crystals or buy crystals, they will need to be cleaned and reset. This is because they absorb people’s energy, like a sponge absorbs water. If you are a healer, you’ll want to cleanse your crystals after each client to remove any negative energy.
Darker crystals have the capacity to absorb heavier energies, so they will require cleansing and recharging more frequently.
Ways to cleanse your crystals:
Bury them in sea salt
Use your breath by blowing energy away from the crystal
Subject them to soundwaves (e.g., singing bowls, bells)
Pass the crystals through incense or smudge them with sage
Pass them through the flame of a candle
Put the crystals in spring water. This allows the energy that has built up to be absorbed by the water
Bury the crystals in the earth. The earth draws stale energy out and absorbs energy like a sponge (grounding the crystal). Beware that crystals like to go back to nature, so if doing this, it may be best to place them in a pot plant so you’re able to easily unbury them
Place the crystals on a Clear Quartz or Amethyst bed or place your crystals around a Selenite tower. These large clusters draw out negative energy
Rituals, prayer, or specific clearing sprays
Ways to recharge your crystals with positive energy:
Place your crystals under a full moon or under sunlight. Bear in mind that leaving your crystals under the sun for long periods of time can bleach their colour
Thunderstorms and singing bowls can help recharge your crystals
Use Clear Quartz, Amethyst beds, or Selenite towers to recharge your crystals
Meditate with your crystals, surrounding you and your crystals in white healing light
Wishing you all the best crystal healing and energy
