I’m often presented with this question:
“I LOVE crystals! I’ve been collecting them since I was a kid & I just know there’s something more to them but I don’t know how to get started with working with them on a spiritual level. How can I do that?”
Here’s what I suggest, Crystal Hottie.
Grab a few crystals or stones that you’re intuitively drawn to. Just start with 3 & don’t think too long on this.
Your 3 fav’s….go get ’em now!
Now, you’re going to choose 1 of your 3 stones to meditate with for just 5 min. If you’ve never meditated before, I just mean relax your body & mind & hold your crystal. You can hold the crystal in your hand or place it on a chakra or you can place it in front of you where you can gaze & focus on it. Just be w/ it. Go ahead, try it now.
After your mediation, try to keep that stone by your side…whether it’s in your pocket or at your bedside, could be under your pillow or worn on a pendant.
Now, you’re going to do this with the same stone for about 4 days in a row.
Did you notice any messages, sensations or themes during that 4 day period? Any little lesson, special dreams, feelings, sensations or even direct messages coming through during your meditation?
Your intention + intuition are the most powerful factor in determining what crystal works best for you personally.
Some more tips to make this more pleasant & effective:
- Remember when doing this to just work with 1 stone at a time so messages don’t get muddied up
- If you can ramp up your meditation time to to 10-15 min. sessions that would be even better
- Choose total silence or meditation music in the background but make so there are no outside distractions
- Light incense
- Light a candle
- Have a designated sacred space or altar to do this work
After you’ve done this, you’ll have a great foundation to work from. You should know those 3 little stone babies pretty well & will have created a strong bond with them. You can choose to continue this with a few more stones if you like or start experimenting with the ones you’ve figured out so far. Use them in medicine bundles, use them with body layouts, in a crystal grid or just hold them when you feel a need for that special mojo that you’ve tapped into.
By the way…there’s an excellent side effect to this crystal exploration…STRESS RELIEF. Oh yeah!
Above all, be grateful for these insights & connections and so many more will come to you, Lima Bean.
Pretty simple, right?
Crystal Blessings to you on your journey, Crystal Hottie!
