I have been a crystal, stone, gem, and rock junkie since I was a kid. I’ve always loved the vibration of them and gravitated to all of the shiny objects. In the 90’s I had a rock sack full of stones that I just loved SOOO much and my purse weighed 50 lbs., and every time I took my bra off, they would go falling out onto the floor.

I found a quartz crystal once out on the property when I got off my horse, and I carried that thing with me EVERYWHERE! I was super bummed when I lost it, and I truly feel the unfortunate life events that I endured afterward were linked to the loss of my crystal. Was it really? NO… My poor decisions as a 19-year-old would really be the cause, but it made me realize in that moment the power of the crystal!

I guess there is a fine line between superstition and vibrational connection. I’m going to really point you in the direction of the vibrational properties here and less on the superstition.

How Do Crystals Work?

“Everything in life is a vibration.” – Albert Einstein

Crystals are made of particles that hold energy and emit vibrations. Each crystal has its own vibrations and brings to the table its own set of superpowers. Our electronic devices (e.g. your cell phone, computer, TV, etc.) are made with clear quartz alongside other minerals because of their ability to emit a gentle charge under pressure.

Our senses and emotions are all influenced by vibrations in our environment. Using crystals gives us the power to support ourselves mentally, energetically, physically, and spiritually.

How to Use Crystals

  1. Cleanse and charge your crystals when you first get them. They’re exposed to all kinds of energy so when they come into your possession give them a fresh start. You can use sage or palo santo smoke, a saltwater bath, or let them soak up the moonlight.
  2. Program your crystal by going through a visualization exercise, stating your intention, and expressing gratitude.
  3. From here, how you use your crystals is up to you. You can use them in meditation, or a ritual, you can wear them, or keep them close by in various areas of your home, car, office, etc.

Which Crystal is Best For You?

The stones, crystals, rocks, and gems will find you! Pay attention to what attracts you and why. Do the research, and learn about them! Why do you love [enter your favorite stone here] so much?

Go to one of my favorite books Love Is in The Earth to read all the things on all the stones! Crystals: The Modern Guide to Crystal Healing and The Crystal Code: Balance Your Energy, Transform Your Life are good ones too.
