How to Use Stones and Crystals

Our wondrous universe that God created is one of vibrations. Absolutely everything - including us - vibrates at a molecular level! In some things, these vibrations tend to cancel one another due to the chaotic structure of that substance. But other things, like crystals and stones, have structures that allow these vibrations to add together. 

Stones and crystals each have a unique structure and composition. This gives each one a unique vibration rate and quality.

At the heart of a crystal is the atom and its component parts. An atom is dynamic, consisting of particles rotating around a centre in constant motion. So, although a crystal may look outwardly serene, it is in fact a seething molecular mass vibrating at a certain frequency. This is what gives a crystal its energy.

Your body is made of the same elements found in stones and crystals. Your body and its internal organs are a collection of parts, each with a specific structure (on a chemical level), each made up of different combinations of carbon, hydrogen and other elements. Because of its structure and composition, each part of your body vibrates and emits energy into the space around it. If you could see these vibrations which are very high frequency you would see them as an energy body that extended well beyond your physical one. These are called your Chakras.

Energetic impurities within your body and in your environment alter these vibrations, adding chaotic elements that distort your energy body. These distortions can starve some areas of your body, preventing them from getting the correct vibrational energy that keeps them operating in harmony with the rest of the parts that make up your physical self.

Since stones and crystals vibrate and emit pure, strong vibrations at constant rates, they can be used to help eliminate these distortions and restore proper balance, leading to better overall physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Each stone and crystal emit subtle vibrations that influence a specific area of your body. Matching the stone or crystal to its specific use allows you to get the most benefit from these natural gifts of harmony.

Scientific evidence about the potential health benefits and risks associated with stones and crystals is hard to come by, but crystals and stones have been used for thousands and thousands of years. This would seem to indicate not only their safety, but also their effectiveness. However, always seek medical attention from a qualified medical or mental health worker, or a Natural Health Practitioner, if you suspect you have a serious problem. The energies radiated from crystals and gems are subtle, and work over time.

Why and How to Choose a Stone or Crystal

Crystals and stones have been used since the dawn of civilization and our loving God has created them in an amazing array of different kinds. They can be used to influence our moods, our health, our personal development, our wealth, our environment, and our relationships.

If you are trying to choose a crystal for a specific reason, then focus on that reason and allow your intuition to choose the right crystals. If it is for someone else, focus on that person.

Enjoy them and remember to thank our loving God who created them too!

Dedicating and Programming Your Crystals and Stones

Crystals need to be dedicated to the purpose for which you use them. Dedicate a new crystal as soon as you have cleansed it. This focuses the energy.

Hold the crystal in your hands. Picture light surrounding it. If you find this difficult, hold your hands in front of a light source. Say out loud: “I dedicate this crystal to the highest good of all. May it be used in light and love”. Reiki practitioners can Reiki their crystals in order to cleanse them.

To program your crystal, hold it in your hand. Let yourself be open to higher Divine guidance. Consider the purpose for which you wish to use it. Be specific. If you want to attract love, describe exactly what kind of love you are looking for. When you have formulated your program, attune to the crystal. Ensure that this is exactly the right crystal for the purpose. When you are totally in tune, say out loud: “I program this crystal for {your purpose” and thank God for helping with that.

When not in use, wrap your crystals in a silk/velvet scarf, store in a special pouch or box, or keep them on a bed of sea salt.

Using Stones and Crystals

Your commitment to the crystal is part of the healing process. Let the crystal do the work for you. It is best not to wear more than two stones at any one time if you are new to crystal healing, as many people find the effects too distracting. The length of time to obtain the effects desired will depend on the quality of the crystal (size, colour, energy charge), location of wear, duration, and the crystal's appropriateness to your healing. Some crystals are better suited to healing the overall problem which underlies the symptoms, than to just treating superficial symptoms. Select your crystal with an honest outlook on the real problem.

Wearing crystals or simply having one in close proximity (carrying one in your pocket or placing one on your night table or under your pillow) can boost your energy and allow them to impart their healing vibrations to your environment. You can also grid crystals around your home or bed, do crystal layouts or make gem elixirs and essences. Remember to program your crystals before use.

Rotating a crystal wand on the skin, or simply placing an appropriate stone on the affected area causes compression which releases a focused beam of vibrations to the affected organ beneath.

Cleaning and Caring for Gemstones

Gemstones can pick up or absorb vibrations not in harmony with their natural rate or quality. Because of this, it is recommended that all stones and crystals be cleansed on a regular basis. You will know it is time when the stone’s energy seems to have diminished or its energy feels tired.

There are many ways you can do this. The easiest for most people is to simply place the stone or crystal in direct sunlight for a few hours. Sunlight is the colors of light, each color having a different vibration rate. This bombardment of energy will strip away the lingering energies that do not belong there, washing them away to leave only those energies produced by the structure of the crystal or stone itself. Sunlight can fade some stones, however, such as Amethyst, Aventurine, Citrine, Fluorite, Rose Quartz, and Smokey Quartz.

Another way is to bury them in the earth. The earth produces vibrational energies in large amounts due to the abundance of moving electrons in its component parts. This energy covers a range of frequencies beyond what the eye can see, with each of the elements producing its own tone or vibration rate. Remember to mark where you bury them so you can find them again! Using a bag would help too. This vibration washes away the negative energies and leaves only the energies of the stone or crystal itself. Keep your stones and crystals buried for at least 2 or 3 days.

Another alternative is to put coarse sea salt in a small container and bury the stone for between 7-24 hours. Do not use salt water as prolonged use can damage softer stones. You can also keep your stones on a bed of salt when not in use. Sprinkling in a bit of tobacco will help energize the salt.

Placing your crystals and stones in a running stream can cleanse them too. You can also blow with force on your stone or crystal to release negative energy.

Citrine and Kyanite can also be used to clean your stones and crystals. They are the only two self-cleaning crystals and stones. You can place your stones on them, as well as Selenite, or Apophyllite or Amethyst clusters for approximately two hours and they will emerge completely energized.

Other methods of cleaning gemstones include using the light of a full moon, a bell, gong or tuning fork, running water (except stones like Selenite and Desert Rose which will eventually melt), a candle, incense, or smudge.
