Do you have crystals around your home, but don’t remember why you purchased them in the first place? Even if you are not actively using them, you bought them for a purpose. The crystals drew you to them for a reason. In this article, we explore what healing you needed that encouraged you to buy the crystals.
Collecting Things is In Our Nature
Remember when you were a kid, and you enjoyed toys, rocks, and seashells? You likely collected more than one toy to play with at home, and probably had a set of characters from your favorite movie or cartoon show. Crystal experts say that we picked up rocks, wanted toys, and possibly even collected bugs like fireflies because it was fun.
When we were kids, we spent more time in nature and collected things from it because we wanted to take a piece of nature inside to still be with us. Many people, as adults, still feel a need to connect with that same earth energy. Crystals are popular because they not only fill that need but also give us hope and inspiration towards our goals.
Different Meanings for Various Crystals
Experts recommend choosing crystals without knowing what they mean but collecting crystals that draw you towards them. If you look up a crystal, you’ll likely find dozens of different meanings for it. Most of them have more than one intention in several life areas like finances, relationships, and wellbeing. Try to choose the one you feel called to before you research it.
Alternatively, you can also choose a crystal based on its meaning. Most crystal shops have the purpose of the crystal listed for you to see. If you aren’t sure how to pick your first crystal, choose one that you like. It could be the color, the shape, or a combination of both that you want. Hold it in your hand and try to sense the crystal with your feelings. Don’t make it harder than it has to be! If you feel attracted to a specific crystal, then that is the one you can use right now in your life.
How to Use Your Healing Crystal
Using crystals can involve several different things to do for healing. Here are a few suggestions on how to use your crystal:
- Keep it in your pocket to take with you while on the go. Try this for one week. Reflect on what happened over that week. Did you feel the energy from the crystal working towards your goals and intentions? Have you noticed a situation differently? Keep your reflections in a journal and repeat this experiment weekly.
- Keep the crystal under your pillow when you sleep. Try this and notice if you have any vividly clear dreams. Keep a notebook for your dreams by your bedside and record them when you wake up. Did you notice more dreams since putting your crystal under your pillow? Have you been able to sleep more deeply or fall asleep faster?
- Use them in meditation. Try holding a crystal in your hands the next time you meditate. Notice the energy of the crystal and what emotions come up. Keep a notebook nearby to jot down any insights or visions you receive while holding the crystal.
While healing crystals don’t have magical powers, they can be powerful reminders for their owners. They can help you feel more empowered in your life and will remind you to put your self-care first. You’ll be encouraged to focus on yourself and your goals when you find the right crystal for you. If you aren’t quite sure what to think, try choosing a crystal for yourself, and see. It can’t hurt to try!
