Once you've chosen your healing crystals - how do you work with them?
Crystals are beautiful and their energy will draw you to them - but what do you do with them when you get them home?
Any healing crystals have to be able to react with your energy field - the specific energy vibration of the crystal reacting and balancing your own energy field. This is also know and the electromagnetic field or aura. So the crystals need to be inside that energy field - 'your space' - which is out to about arms length for most people.
You can work with a number of different crystals at the same time - they work very well together and their energies don't interfere with each other.
Different crystals work on different parts of your energy field and help you deal with different problems. They help balance your energy field on the emotional, spiritual, mental and physical levels, which means that they can help with physical problems as well as stress, loss, depression or fear.
Working with personal crystals
You can wear your crystal as jewellery - many people have a selection of different crystal pendants that they wear depending on which effects thay are looking for at the time. I always wear at least two!
Personally I find it easy and practical to wear the crystals I want to work with during the day, as jewellery - pendants, earrings and bracelets. But it's just a matter of choice and what will suit your lifestyle.
You can also keep tumbled pieces in your pocket, place them close to you where you work, put them under your pillow as you sleep or tuck them into a chair you spend a lot of time sitting at.
You don't have to have the crystals actually touching you, but they are very tactile, lovely to hold and very soothing as worry stones. So if you like them holding them and playing with they, that is perfect.
As a general guide, putting them in a handbag or putting them in a bowl won't help you. When you're carrying the bag it's fine, but for much of the day the bag will not be close to you and the crystals won't be able to interact with your energy field. You'll also forget about them - out of sight out of mind - and you'll forget to cleanse them.
A bowl of mixed crystals will also normally be too far away from you to help your energy field. A bowl full of individual tumbled amethyst (for instance) will be fine for cleansing the energy of a room. A bowl full of tumbled pieces of any individual crystal will have enough energy to spread further and can be very decorative as well as still spreading their healing energy into your energy field.
Laying Crystals on the body
You can lay the crystals on or around your body as you relax. There are many layout patterns that you can use, but the basic ones use the main Chakra points and/or clear quartz points
Set aside time to relax and absorb the energy of the crystals, allow them to rebalance your energy and improve the flow of energy through your body
You can hold your crystal in your hand while relaxing or meditating, or keep it in a pocket where your hand will touch it easily thoughout the day
In other cases, it is enough to have the crystal close to you - for instance an amethyst under your pillow to help you sleep, a sodalite or clear quartz between you and your computer to help deflect the electro-magnetic radiation from the machine.
Larger pieces of crystal are not only beautiful, they can be very useful for your environment. A large piece of rose quartz or amethyst can keep the atmosphere in a room or office calm and positive. a clear quartz can help reduce the electro-magnetic radiation of the the TV, DVD, digibox or iPod - and of course the mobile phone!
You can keep crystals around you in general. On your desk, by the cooker, as a hand comforter, by your seat as you watch TV or by your bedside
In fact - once you start, it won't be long before you have crystals everywhere!
Crystal healing is one of the forms of energy healing, a complementary therapy. You should always take medical advice for a serious health problem and work with crystals alongside other treatments.
