Working with Crystals

Updated: Nov 16, 2019



Have you ever wondered... So, what’s with this crazy stuff about the magical power of crystals?

Well, here you'll find some information on crystals based on the science as well as the metaphysical.


First, it’s important to understand what a crystal is.

All crystals have a perfect geometric structure. They are extremely stable which makes them able to influence the environment. And, because of their stability, they’re able to influence everything around them, this includes us. We know that everything is energy and everything vibrates a some level of frequency. Crystals being some of the strongest, most energetic, vibrating physical things on the planet, influence us even when we don’t realize it. Us mere mortals aren’t stable, so we can’t influence them.


Also, they can easily maintain their own frequency. In other words, they’ve really got it together, unlike us. They know what they’ve got going on. Citrine will always be citrine and will always be just what it is. It will always help a person manifest differently, be more joyful and be more confident. It will never be influenced by the environment or by you, it's the other way around.


Crystals work on an energetic level.

Since we don’t have a stable structure, we’re just all over the place. On an energetic and physical level, we can’t influence them because our structure just isn’t strong enough. This is why crystals are so important to us. They can effect us on all levels by stabilizing us. Because we’re born connected to the earth in so many ways, crystals can influence us on a very deep level.


Ways to use crystals

First allow them to get in the body. The heart and the brain are central because it’s our intelligent nervous system that connects with them. The best connection into our whole system is through the palm of your hand. So, holding a crystal is best way to get the frequencies into the body. Next best is the heart, so wearing a crystal in a necklace on a daily bases works well. Girls, wearing a crystal in your bra is a great place too. Lastly would be in your pocket.


When starting out, wear a crystal for three weeks to allow your body to adjust to it. Crystals are made up of minerals and so are our bodies. We’re born with a natural connection to them which allows us to take in their energies.


The must haves:

Like Vitamin C for the soul, the Citrine crystal emanates positivity and joy. It carries the power of the sun, it’s a warming, energizing and highly creative stone. Citrine raises self confidence, enhances individuality, improves motivation, activates creativity, encourages self expression and so much more. Wear it, hold it, and meditate with it, especially with guided meditations to help open you up, create and take you to a more joyful state.


Along with citrine, two other must have beginner stones are tiger’s eye and lapis. They work well together to help bring about healing on many levels. The end game with crystals is they change your energetic frequency. That shift in frequency in your life can change everything. So, please don’t just leave them on the shelf. You need to have a connection with them in order to bring healing and change.


Tiger’s eye also grounds us and brings luck and courage. Citrine for manifestation as mentioned above and Lapis to allow you to overcome obstacles and to come into your true being. They make a great team!

*Note, size doesn’t matter with crystals. The little ones can work just as well as big ones. Those in jewelry or the little tumbled ones that are easy to wear, hold and pocket. While having them in your pocket is OK, touching your skin is always best.


Metaphysically speaking...

First allow them to get in the body. The heart and the brain are central because it’s our intelligent nervous system that connects with them. The best connection into our whole system is through the palm of your hand. So, holding a crystal is best way to get the frequencies into the body. Next best is the heart, so wearing a crystal in a necklace on a daily bases works great. Girls, wearing a crystal in your bra is great place. Lastly would be in your pocket.


On a metaphysical level, crystals can effect us through our chakras. While there are many chakras in the body, I’m basically referring to the seven main ones. I invite you to check out this blog post on crystals & chakras for some great information on healing with crystals.

If you don’t have a metaphysical shop near you, I can recommend a few places to go online to buy the three stones I mentioned and more. The least expensive are the small tumbled stones. They work great and are easy to have on you such as in bracelets and pendents. Bracelets should be worn on your left wrist as it has a direct path to your heart. I have several and wear at least one everyday.
