I have purchased a quanity of your crystals and they are lovely. What I need to know is how do I use them. Do I hole them or put them inder my pillow or next to my bed. I'm very confused about the best way to use them for receiving the greates benefit.
I am planning on purchasing more crystals but before I do I would like to know the best way to use them.
Thank you very much for your help because at this time I am going through a horrible divorce that is into it's second year. After 25yrs of marriage my husband left me for his secretary.
So any help you can give me on these crystals will be very much appreciated.
Greetings, and thank you for your email! I'm sorry to hear about your divorce. Please try to focus on the idea that this is a new chapter in your life, during which time you can be free to grow into a whole new self. I would first like to recommend some aura strengthening work, such as meditation. You can imagine that with every inhale, you are drawing in powerful, positive energy into your center. As you exhale, imagine that energy being sent out into your aura, creating a strong protective energy field.
Regarding the use of crystals, I can tell you that there are many books on the subject of working with crystals, each with valuable information to offer guidance. That being said, there really are no set-in-stone rules for working with your crystals. Everyone is different and as such, we each have different requirements, bringing out different properties from our crystals. So if you decide to read some books on the subject, always keep in mind that there are variables and "your mileage may vary", as they say. Now that you know that, here is a listing of books on the subject that have great knowledge of crystals:
Here are some examples of how I like to work with my crystals: I like to sleep with one in my pillow case. I meditate with them in my hands, I use them in manifestation grids, carry them in my pocket, place them on my chakras, wear them as jewelry.... the possibilities are endless really. You can also grid your home with crystals for protection, put a piece of Citrine in the far left corner of the house for attracting money, and place some Rose Quartz in the far right to attract love. These are just some suggestions, and it is always best to use your own judgement.
When you first get a new crystal, I recommend spending some one-on-one time with that new piece. You could spend maybe a week with your new stone, carrying it in your pocket, meditating with it, sleeping with it, until you feel like you have an idea of its particular energy offerings for you. For example, in your situation, you might benefit from a nice-sized piece of Rose Quartz to offer comforting vibrations to your Heart Chakra. When you first receive it, you might hold it in your hand, examine it, touch it, and keep it with you for a while. You might find that Rose Quartz has a soothing energy about it that soothes the broken heart and strengthens self-love, which is very important during this time of emotional healing. We carry a large selection of Rose Quartz at this page:
After reading the energy of your email, I got the sense that you might also enjoy the energies of Selenite. Selenite has a strong, spiritual vibration that can uplift the soul. Selenite is great for removing energetic blockages and are helpful during healing sessions. The Natural Selenite wands are great as they can focus their energies when you point them at a specific chakra, but the Hearts are nice too, as they offer a softer vibration for when you need a little TLC. If you are interested in seeing some Selenite, take a look at this page:
It might be a good idea to use this period of time after your divorce as a time of renewal. You can use this new space of yours to develop yourself spiritually. I don't know if you've noticed, but the world is going through some amazing changes in our current time. Many people are beginning to awaken in a spiritual sense. If you find yourself drawn to the spiritual side, encourage that. Try to meditate regularly, empower your chakras and aura, and heal your soul from any negative attachments.
