I have a question for you. Too many crystals, not enough time?
I was wondering if this is a common problem in our crystal-lovin’ community? I recently asked this question on my Facebook Page & got a lot of very interesting answers.
I thought this response from Mary was classic!:
- Maybe you keep telling yourself you need the perfect sacred space before you can start working with them, or you don’t have the right combo of crystals, or the right crystal books, or enough time.
- Maybe you’re waiting & waiting for the perfect blend of magical sparkly ingredients. And maybe you tell yourself that you’ll get to all that someday. I KNOW how this plays out b/c I’ve done it myself!!
- Or do you even think that someday you’ll finally remember what all the crystals are & what to use them for? Ha! Good luck with that 1. It’s a noble goal, but…forget it. THIS IS KEY & what I’m always preaching: Just use your intuition, Crystal Hottie. Forget about learning all the crystals. You’ll never do that. There are over 4,500 and counting!! That should relieve some overwhelm right there.
Let me tell you a little-bitty secret:
“Someday” usually never comes.
Sometimes, we create all sorts of reasons that can indefinitely support our “putting it off”. C’mon…think about it. How many things have you said “Someday” or “later” to & actually completed?
Hey, if you’ve decided you’re totally OK with just collecting crystals & never actually putting them to any use, that’s great. There are many other people in the world who do that & I think its’ wonderful to collect something of such beauty.
BUT if you do want to actually get to working with your crystals, learning what they can each do for you as well as others, then how about finally getting to that?
Procrastination. All of us do it & all of us get stuck. And you may not even realize that you’re procrastinating at all. But if you do realize you’re just putting off working with your crystals, and you do really want to realize their full potential & get your motivation going, I have some tips for you:
Action Steps to Finally Learn How to Work with all your Crystals
ACTION STEP 1
Eliminate Crystal Overwhelm. If you’re like me & have a TON O’ CRYSTALS then you may be suffering from Crystal-Overwhelm. It happens to the best of us. All of a sudden you realize you’ve amassed too many stones & crystals & you find yourself paralyzed. Here’s what you can do: break the task down into chunks of easy steps. One way to do this is to commit to learning to sense & feel the energies of just 1 crystal for 1 entire week. Sit down to meditate with it committing to just 1-5 minutes each day if possible. Yes, 1 minute will be fine. Work with just 1 crystal for just 1 minute/day for 1 week. You can do that. Call that a success. Vow to work with only 1 crystal all week long. Eliminate temptation to do something else. Throughout the week, journal any messages, sensations, visions or special dreams. At the end of the week look over your journal and see if you note a theme. This is how that crystal is resonating for you personally. It may sound simple but it’s POWERFUL STUFFS.
ACTION STEP 2
Focused Blocks of Sacred Time. Not enough time? You’re too busy? I call BULLSCHIST. First, you need to decide that its important enough to you. Make that time sacred, and don’t let anything or anyone get in the way. In step one all you need is 1 minute/day to work with your crystal. Make the time if it’s important. Stop watching TV, get off of social media, watching the negativity news stories. Yeah, if you cute 1/2 of that stuff out, I bet you’ll find all sorts of time. It’s just about breaking habits, deciding what’s important & making it a priority. Put it on your calendar daily (go…go schedule it on your phone now) and make it happen.
ACTION STEP 3
Overcome the Fear of Failing at Crystal Healing. I really hesitate to call it “crystal healing” (but cont. to do so b/c so many don’t understand what you’re talking about if you call it anything else). So; “crystal healing, therapy, energy work”…whatever you want to call it, many think to themselves…“Who am I to think I can do this? I’m going to fail. It won’t work.”
I say…you cannot fail. Yes, you’ll have to do some work, but if you do the work, you cannot fail. Simply think about who you’re helping, find inspiration in the people you’re going to help.
And always bear in mind that when working with crystals, the “healing” taking place is a 2 way street…it goes both ways.
You’re simply acting as a facilitator, so that takes a lot of the pressure off & diminishes the fear that so many of us have around this. You can do this. I believe in you.
ACTION STEP 4
Publicly Commit. …this is the MOST powerful. If you’re comfy with it, social media is great for this!! In fact, social motivation is one of the most powerful motivators there is.
When I wanted to commit to doing a daily crystal oracle card reading, I told my YouTube followers that I was going to do this for 7 days in a row. I knew then that if I didn’t or skipped a day, that they’d be asking me about it. Did that keep me motivated to stay on track? you bet it did! OK, you don’t have to shout it from the rooftops but at least let your inner circle know what you’re doing & tell them you they would really help you out if they asked you about your goal to learn more about your crystals when they see or talk to you. Ask for some accountability.
What To Do Right Now
Review the steps above, and right down on your calendar when you’re getting started.
That’s what you need to do right now.
Don’t think or talk about finally learning to work with your crystals, do it.
