At an atomic level, our universe is in a constant state of vibration. Crystals are extremely good at holding a stable vibration due to their crystalline lattice structure. We, on the other hand are a very complex mix of vibrations that can easily be disturbed and become unbalanced which makes us sick and unwell. All kinds of things can affect our vibration, from external influences such as electromagnetic and geopathic stress, to internal ones such as constant negative thought patterns and suppressing emotions.
Crystals can pick up negative energies very quickly so it is important when you first obtain a crystal and even after you have been using it for some time that it is cleansed. Before it arrives in your at your home, crystals pass through many hands absorbing different energies that could affect your own balance. There are a number of cleansing methods, our top 6 are listed below. Depending on whether your crystal is raw or polished and also which type of crystal you should be careful and choose an appropriate cleansing method. For example, cleansing some crystals in water if they are metal may cause them to erode or for delicate crystals they may disintegrate. Please hover over the crystalboxes below to find out more about each method and which one you can use on your crystals.
It is important that the crystals you use are charged when you first buy them and regularly for them to perform at their best. With experience you’ll be able to feel whether or not your crystals need charging.
To activate your crystal, sit quietly holding your crystal, relax and initiate circular breathing. Set an intention for your crystal silently or aloud (eg. I am down to earth and divinely connected’)By setting our crystals with positive intentions we are manifesting the world to return to us the positive life experiences that we seek.
Chakras are energy centers that are located down the midline of the body each related to an acupressure point. Ideally the upper chakras and the lower chakras should be balanced to ensure optimum health of those bodily parts. Each of your seven chakras is strongly connected with specific crystals which produce vibrations to help balance, align and cleanse your chakras. Check each crystal’s product description to find out which chakra it corresponds to. Read more about chakras and how to recognize imbalance in our blog.
