Subject: Crystals and questions ;-)
I would have written sooner, but I was having a problem with my mail program.
I received my package on Thursday, and wanted to thank you so much for the lovely crystals and the free little crystal quartz. :) Everything is very pretty, and hopefully will be of help to me. Already I think I can feel a difference in my apartment just putting them out.
I was wondering if you had to clear and program your crystals if you are placing them in a corner of your room or near a "shrine", or just leave them alone. I put a rose quartz near a memorial of my beloved kitty whom I had to put to sleep two months ago. I also put an amethyst, a clear quartz and a cintrine in the left corner of the room, in hopes of dissipating negative energy and bringing about a more positive atmosphere. I am also in need of attracting abundance, confidence and motivation. At night, I've been trying to meditate with a clear quartz and a lithium crystal to balance my chakras and heal my aura. I don't know when or if it will work, but I am open to anything.
As for the chakra kit, I am unclear as to how to use it. Do I meditate using the gems for a particular chakra one at a time or as long as I feel I need to work on that chakra, or can I pick one stone from each chakra and try it that way? I am assuming there is no right or wrong way of doing things; just use my intuition?
I've also been carrying the little clear quartz and lithium crystal in my little pouch in hopes of feeling more "balanced" throughout the day. I just want to feel calmer and more secure, if that makes sense.
Lastly, I was wondering if there was a powerful crystal that could be used to help my nephew. He is 15 years old and suffers from Asperger's Syndrome (a mild form of autism) and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (he is always fighting and arguing with his parents and sister and giving them an unreasonably hard time). Is there a crystal that can be placed on his room and/or on his person that might calm him down and keep him happy and focused?
Anyway, thank you, again, for the gift and for the care that went into packing and shipping my items. I appreciate your kindness and your time and hope to hear from you when you can respond.
Thanks for your note. I definitely suggest that you become familiar with programming and clearing your crystals regularly. This helps to focus the energy quite a bit and will make the crystals active and effective at what you are trying to accomplish. We have some articles on our website that talk about clearing and programming your crystals which you can find here:
As far as the chakra kit goes, I suggest that you purchase some books on crystal healing and possibly even take a class. It is difficult to give you a short answer to your question on how to use your chakra stones. We are trying to continually add new articles to our website and I've made a note to try and include this as one of our upcoming articles. In the meantime, there are many books available which we suggest here:
I'm glad that you're enjopying your Lithium quartz. We've writting an article on that and may be featuring Lithium quartz in our next newsletter. Lithium is a great stone that helps to calm people and I would also suggest for your nephew, smokey quartz to diffuse negative energy and Rose Quartz to stay centered in his heart. There are many other stones that can help and you will find much discussion on these issues in the crystal books that we recommend.
I wish you much joy and success with your journey of learing about crystals. It can be very rewarding and life altering to give intent and ask the crystals to assist with manifesting your intentions.
Stay in touch and we look forward to hearing from you again soon. Have a wonderful day!
Love and Harmony,
