I am wondering what type of and how many crystals I need to restructure gallon jug of water?
Greetings and thank you for sending in your question. Water comprises over 70% of the human body. It is the most basic element of life and as such, it should be treated with respect and reverence. Anything we ingest, whether food or water, will be better for us if it carries positive energies. To clarify this, many people do not eat meat due to the way it is processed before it gets to the grocery store. Some people feel that the way an animal lives and dies has an effect on the energetic qualities of the resulting meat. For example, the meat of an animal that has been raised on a free range pasture will be a better quality than that of an animal that has been raised in a factory farm in less than optimum conditions. One could argue that the same thing can be said about water that has come from a natural spring versus water from a pressurized pipe. It is believed that the water that comes to our homes through metal pipes flows in an unnatural way, and thus may not be carrying energies that our beneficial to our physical bodies.
Crystals work with etheric energies, and while they cannot remove physical toxins from water, they can charge it with positive, healing energies. Almost any crystal can have beneficial effects on water, but you must be careful not to place any stone that is soft and friable into a liquid, as it will begin to break up and dissolve. Stones that cannot be placed in drinking water include, but are not limited to, Azurite, Lapis Lazuli, Selenite, Sulphur, and any cluster, because they can easily come off of the matrix.
One crystal that is known for purifying the energies of water, and for raising its overall vibration, is Lithium Quartz. A soothing stone with supportive energies, Lithium Quartz can help to balance and align all the chakras, with some focus on the Heart and Third-Eye Chakras. Uplifting Lithium Quartz is a powerful yet gentle healing crystal that can bring harmony to the etheric energies of the water you are using. For a gallon jug of water, you would want to cover at least one third of the bottom with these crystals, which could be one to three stones, depending on their size. To see our selection of Lithium Quartz, please follow this link:
Another crystal that would be great for pulling negative energies out of water is Tibetan Quartz. Tibetan Quartz carries strong, protective energies that can be imparted into the water it is placed in. A highly spiritual stone, Tibetan Quartz can create a field of protection around whatever it touches. Tibetan Quartz is known to dissolve energetic blockages and dispel negative influences. The protective energies of Tibetan Quartz are enhanced when in a crystal grid formation. To do this, you would place six small crystals in the bottom of a container, in a hexagram formation for optimum effects. The hexagram amplifies the natural sacred geometry of the crystals. You can see our Tibetan Quartz Crystals here:
The last crystal I want to mention for clarifying the energies of your water is the Herkimer Diamond. Prized for their purifying energies, Herkimer Diamonds carry some of the highest vibrations in the mineral kingdom. Herkimer Diamonds are known as "attunement stones", and are frequently used to align ones vibration for the highest good. Clearing away all energetic debris and blockages, Herkimer Diamonds are known to purify the etheric energy field in and around any object or person, making them ideal crystals for water restructuring. Additionally, Herkimers are known to amplify the energies of other crystals and can therefore be placed in a jug of water with some other crystals for some unique energetic effects. You can take a look at our Herkimer Diamonds at the following page:
Each of the crystals I have mentioned above can enhance the vibrational energies of your water. They can be used alone or in combination. One tip I want to mention is that you could use one of each crystal, thereby allowing the Herkimer Diamond to not only contribute its higher frequencies, but also to enhance the energies of the Lithium Quartz and the Tibetan Quartz. This collaboration of energies would create a powerful and purifying combination. Please remember to cleanse and program your crystals before using them. For information on these topics, please see the articles on them in our newsletter archive on this page:
While I am happy to make this recommendation, it is not intended to be used as medical advice. If you remember to always use your intuition when considering which crystals to use for any purpose, you won't go wrong.
I hope this helps. Good luck with your crystal work!
Peace and Blessings,
