The Beginner’s Guide to Healing Crystals

Healing crystals are said to harness the power of the sun, the moon, and the Earth. Fans of these beautiful stones tout their holistic healing properties, created by the power of positive intentions. When we hold crystals or wear them close to our bodies, they amplify the good vibrations we put out into the world.

To get started on this personalized practice of well-being, here are the key steps one should take:

Understand Your Crystal

The first step in working with healing stones is to understand them as a whole. Crystals are very powerful and possess very strong capabilities. As humans are entropic, the power held within the crystal flows through to the human when the two are in connection. When you look at your crystals, you will be reminded of your connection to the universe and its infinite powers. Understanding and accepting the abilities of your crystal is a vital aspect of the process.

Choosing the Right Crystal

Although it can be easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices when it comes to healing crystals, trust your intuition and choose the stone you feel a natural attraction and connection to.

The shape of a crystal can impact your overall experience when working with that particular stone. You can choose natural, rough stones or polished versions that are easy to carry or wear. ― These are the properties of some of the most common healing crystal shapes:

  • Pointed crystal: Those who use healing stones use the pointed stone as a powerful tool to manifest and amplify intentions. This versatile choice is great for beginners as it has diverse uses and effectively radiates your energy into the universe.
  • Cube-shaped crystal: This grounding stone is useful to create a sense of calm and well-being. These are also used as protection stones, often by placing one in each of a room’s four corners.
  • Heart crystal: If you find a heart crystal, keep it close to your own heart. It will pick up your loving intentions.
  • Crystal spheres: These stones have a grounding effect because they’re sending equal energy in every direction. Many who use crystals find that the round shapes promote a sense of harmony.
  • Cylinder: To support meditation practice, try using two cylindrical crystals together. Known as a harmonizer, the pair is said to promote spiritual and emotional balance.
  • Pyramid crystal:  Used by ancient civilizations, this shape is renowned for its powerful manifestation properties. Try writing down your intentions and placing a pyramid crystal on top.

Cleansing Crystals

Selenite and Quartz are cleansing crystals, which are known to clear out energies through exposure. As crystals hold so much power, over time, they can become overloaded with energy. While some people believe it is important to cleanse your crystals, it is not a necessary step for a successful conveyance of capabilities. Crystals are very powerful objects and possess the ability to withhold an overload of energy. It is not required for humans to clean crystals to better endure their strengths.
