Crystals have existed on earth for millions and millions of years. They are said to be a tool which works with our energy field to absorb, focus and direct energies.
When you purchase crystals, the first thing is to cleanse them with sage, palo santo or water. Next part is to set an intention what you need for example; you need your earthy crystals to help you with compassion, forgiveness, universal love, letting go etc.
There are many ways you can incorporate your beloved crystals in your everyday life -
Meditation: You can start by holding your crystal in you hand (any or both) as you close your eyes and focus on your breath. You may feel that your body is slowly sinking deeper into the earth and creating a grounding effect. Some people also feel lightness. Setting intentions and meditating with your crystal can enhance and magnify your results, and it is really up to you to decide what result you want.
Crystal Grid: Arranging a group of crystals into a sacred geometrical grid is thought to help magnify their power. Placing crystals on your body allows the healing properties of stones to activate that area of your body.
Carrying: You can carry small tumbled crystals with you. The more contact you have with a crystal, the more aware you'll be of its energy. Carry them in your pocket or purse and pulling it out whenever you need to centre yourself or bring your attention back to the intention you're working toward.
Create an alter: Creating a crystal alter will give your living space a beautiful boost of earth energy.
