Here is a Question from One of Our Customers:
1. Do I have to clean my crystals as soon I receive them?
2. Do the crystals need to make contact with the skin to work?
I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.
Common practice is that any time you receive new crystals they should be cleared and cleansed. From when they were removed from the ground until they reached you, many individuals have handled your crystals. Their energy will have left a energy residue on the crystals. Here are several articles on cleaning and clearing.
Now to your question on if crystals need to touch the skin in order to work. It depends on the type of healing and the stone. Many cancer stones work best when touching the skin. Some stones like tumbles stones radiate energy in all directions and work fine sitting in bowls with other crystals. Pendents when touching the skin will slowly allow a continues flow of energy into the body which is absorbed by all areas. Rings when they touch the body work the same way but work best when the stone is turned to face the palm. By closing the palm over the stone you increase the effectiveness of the stone. A large stone such as towers and natural points will emit energy from the point which will work great as collectors and generators for grids. I will tell you that playing with your stones will give you an idea on how best the stone will work for you. You will receive impression and intuitive feels from the handling of the stones and crystals. Trust these feelings, they will guide you into your own personal relationship with your crystals and stones.
