Hi there. I have recently bought a small Clear Quartz crystal to wear everyday as a healing stone, but I'm having some problems with it. I wear it as a necklace and sometimes it gives me a very uncomfortable burning sensation where it touches my skin, which slowly disappears after I take the pendant off. I tried holding it and meditating about my intentions for the stone (to bring positive energy and healing to my life), but I can't wear it without getting "burned", having intense nightmares, or bad days. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Or maybe my energy and the stones don't work well together? I'm at a loss...
Thank you for your question.
I first need to ask you whether you cleansed your crystal and whether you are cleansing it regularly? This may be one of the possible reasons for the unease that you are experiencing.
Another reason may be this --sometimes crystals work to illuminate something that needs to be cleared (from our bodies, emotional patterns, beliefs, habits) in order for us to be more healthy and balanced. So you may want to ask yourself, as you hold your crystal (after you have cleansed it), whether there is anything that needs to be cleansed out of your system? Any emotional pattern that is no longer beneficial to you, any attachment to a past that no longer servers your highest good, any fear that has no basis in reality and is stopping you from achieving what you want and need?
If you receive any messages, it might help to write them down and then look for a healing modality that might best address what you are going through.
I know that it is disappointing when we get a stone that we hoped will bring us relief and instead we experience the opposite, but it is usually a good sign -- a sign that you are ready to change and shift but that you need to first look into what is not currently working for you. The fact that you are having nightmares is also one indicator of this. Try to analyze them in the light of day and see if they represent any fears that you are repressing during daytime or any unresolved issues that you have from your past.
Finally, you may want to disregard all of this, and find a stone that makes you feel good, through experimentation. It may be that this crystal is bringing up a lot of issues that may be hard for you to deal with right now.
Follow your intuition and see what happens. This is the best way towards personal change and transformation.
Please make sure to cleanse your crystals regularly, every day if you wear them daily, using one of the methods outlined here.
I hope that these recommendations can be of assistance and that crystals grace your journey with love and light.
