How to Begin Working with Crystals and Stones

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, dreaming, gratefullness, meditation 8 Comments

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!

  1. Hi There, I really like your suggestions, H. M. For myself, I just started wondering, one day, what would happen if I put rose quartz stones on a heart chakra, anyone’s heart chakra. So I talked someone into laying down on my Reiki table and letting me experiment and after several repeats with different people, the results were so great I started wondering, what would happen if I alternated rose quartz with green aventurine, and doncha know, the first folks had such fun, when they found out I was still playing with rocks, they came by my studio and we worked with pink and green for awhile. Some day, when I grow up, I’m planning to take your classes and be certified. Thank you for your work. Love and peace, Diana

  2. Hey guys, no matter how I try, I just cannot get my free crystal emit downloaded onto my iPad. Any help in this regard is welcome.
    I simply LOVE you HM.

  3. Hi,

    Do you even do distance chakra healing. i do have chakra healing set with me but i think at times is it working for me or not.

    If you can do distant healing for me I would like to have a session with you.

    Awaiting for your reply.

    Thanks & regards,
    Ekta Thaker.

  4. Hi Hibiscus Moon, I soooo love your work. I’m really grateful for your video on Fluourite and have used Fluourite on myself when I injured myself and found it so helpful that I was game enough to place a piece on my mother, who is prone to bruising as she falls or knocks herself about quite a bit and I am so happy to tell you that mum felt instant relief, as did I and my bruise was nothing like the size of mum’s. So thank you a thousand times, thank you. Sparkly rainbow blessings
