Charging Crystals and Gemstones

charging crystals and gemstonesEverything is energy, including your intention.  Crystals, gemstones and all products of the Earth innately hold the imprint of Life itself and are more than willing to serve the Truth and greater purpose once you learn to tap into their energy.  Charging crystals and gemstones is a simple practice that can achieve potent results. It is a good example of how we often need very little to accomplish very much.

Formed by the evolution of the Earth over time, each crystal or gemstone carries its own metaphysical properties, and vibrates with its own frequency. Crystals and gemstones are powerful tools you can use to magnify and direct energy. However, it is important to remember that you are using them to work with energy; the crystal or gemstone itself is not the energy, but a conductor, amplifier, generator, and director. Individual gemstones vibrate at particular frequencies that naturally resonate with certain energy patterns, manifestations, and intentions. Intentionally choosing stones to work with can bring transformation.

Gemstones emit powerful and unique energetic vibrations that impact how you feel, sense, and interact with your environment. I encourage you to select stones to work with based on their individual properties, and your intentions. Visual attraction alone will not always bring the results you seek. However, if there is a particular stone you are drawn to visually, it may be a subconscious realization of an unexpressed need. Don’t ignore your instincts.

Some people are highly sensitive to gemstone vibrations while others are not. As you raise your own vibration, you will be more in touch with, and more readily able to use, your own intuition as a guide. Don’t assume that just because you aren’t sensitive to gemstone vibrations today that you won’t be able to work with them at all. Give yourself time, and recognize that energy work is a process and a skill that you develop with practice..

Charging crystals and gemstones involves setting your intention and purpose. Ask yourself honestly what you seek to manifest, release, or change. Some common intentions that often lead people to work with crystals and gemstones are: healing, love, wealth, spiritual growth, endings and beginnings, and happiness. With any of the charging methods below, send your intentions, and their associated thoughts, feelings, and vibrations into the Universe, thanking the specific stone for being your partner in this energy work.

First, always clear any negative or unwanted energy from your stones. Place your stone under the light of the full moon overnight, or use sage smoke or spray to sufficiently clear energies and purify.


Charging Grid: Gridding is a powerful and beautiful way to use multiples of certain gemstones to achieve a desired outcome.  Try working in multiples of four because the Medicine Wheel has four cardinal directions: North,South,Charging Crystals and Genstones East, and West. You can use four quartz points to make the four cardinal directions and then work in multiples of four if you wish to honor both the quarters and cross-quarters: N, S, E, W, and NE, NW, SE, SW.  Or you can do something as simple as the pattern in this picture.


Charging Stone: Stones can clear and energize each other. Place the stone you are working with directly on or against a charging stone for 24 hours or until it feels full. Selenite and quartz are fantastic examples of charging crystals. Remember that Black Kyanite clears ALL energies from all objects, without holding any energy or charge. No other stone has that unique quality!

Plants: Energy flows vibrantly through thriving nature. Place your gemstone in the soil and among the leaves of a healthy, growing plant for 24 hours or more. If you place Green Aventurine in your plants, they will root faster, grow stronger, and thrive better.

Earth Burial: Mother Earth generously takes away that which no longer serves and returns it to a state of fertile ground. Burying stones in the earth for at least a week or up to a month will clear and charge them. This method works particularly well with grounding gemstones such as smoky quartz and red jasper. You can even grid within the Earth and then bury the entire grid.

Amber is One of the World’s Oldest Treasures

Amber is one of the world’s oldest treasures.   It is as popular today Amber as it was in ancient cultures and was utilized as far back as the Stone Age for its pleasing warmth of color, value in adornment, and its magical and medicinal properties.

Amber belongs to a small class of organic gems, neither a crystal or a mineral, but a biological product of nature.  It is a protective resin that oozed from living prehistoric trees and fossilized over millions of years.  It is prized for its energetic and healing properties and the powerful Life Force it carries.  Other organic gems include pearl, coral and ivory.

Amber holds a strong connection to the sun and the earth as well as once living insects, plants, and organisms that are forever preserved in its golden structure.

Amber is a natural purifier.  It is esteemed for its ability to draw pain and disease from the physical body as well as the mind and spirit, by absorbing negative energies and stimulating the body’s own ability to heal itself.  It cleanses and reactivates the chakras particularly the Sacral and Solar Plexus.  It emits a bright, soothing energy conducive to health and wellbeing, and provides a protective shield against negative energies.

AmberFrom the earliest discoveries of Amber thousands of years ago it became one of the first exports from the Baltic region.  Prehistoric trade routes were defined by the Amber trade and the inland corridor from coastal areas of the North and Baltic Seas down to the Mediterranean Sea became known as the Amber Road.

AmberTrue Amber of lapidary quality come mainly from the Baltic regions, primarily from Russia, Poland and Lithuania, with small amounts coming from Mexico, Dominican Republic, Burma and Indonesia.  It has a hardness of 2 to 2.5 and comes in colors ranging from whitish and pale yellow, to honey yellow/orange/brown hues,  to a deep brown.  Colors like red or green are rare and most on the market are heat or pressure treated.  Black Amber is not fully fossilized resin and is  really Jet, a form of lignite coal.

Amber is an excellent rubbing stone for dispelling negative moods, relieving anxiety or deflecting energy from others.  Carry it in your pocket or wear it in jewelry.

Since the time of Hippocrates in ancient Greece, Amber and its resinous extracts have been used to alleviate  a variety of health ailments.  It is excellent for relieving stress and depression, and increasing overall vitality and energy levels.  It can stimulate sluggish digestion and is beneficial in treatments for the kidney, spleen, liver and gall bladder, and disorders of the throat.

Bringing balance and stability to ones life, Amber encourages patience and flexibility.  Its warm energy promotes cheerfulness and trust and strengthens self confidence.  It enhances the understanding of messages from the past to aid in decision making and moving forward in life.

Use Amber in meditation when you want to connect to the earth’s wisdom of an earlier age.  It is a great tool for past life exploration, clearing family patterns, or cleansing karmic debris from your energy field.

AmberAmber associates with the color energies of Gold.  Gold color rays bring success, enthusiasm, happiness and power.  It’s the color of kings, riches and the sun.  Light Gold rays provide us with a cheerfulness and contentment while dark Gold provides a deeper more pronounced sense of devotion and commitment.

Amber is fossilized with its Life Force energies intact and is an excellent source of Light energy for the physical body and a tangible support for energetic healing.  It can assist you in connecting with interdimentional and intergalactic Light beings including Nature devas and fairies, and those who are on earth to help mankind through the coming shift.

Although Amber endured millions of years of intense heat, pressure and weathering, it is still very sensitive to acid, gasoline, caustic solutions, alcohol and perfume.  It Is easily scratched and should only be wiped using a soft cloth.



Crystals Amplify Universal Energy

Crystals amplify Universal energyCrystals amplify Universal energy as well as their own energy.  Crystals have an orderliness of structure at the molecular level and with each molecule vibrating at the same rate as all the others.  Synchronization takes place so that all the units within the crystal, and every other crystal of the same composition, vibrate in unison called a harmonic convergence.  Each crystal type has its own fundamental frequency or harmonic note.

Crystal therapy refers to working with crystals’ energy in conjunction with Divine energy. Crystal therapy helps you to better hear, feel, and know the voice of Spirit during your healing sessions.  The crystals work to assist you in healing and helping you communicate with Source.

Crystals amplify Universal energySince crystal therapy is an intuitive healing process, it’s normal for psychic ability to increase as you work with the stones.
I have learned that crystals are alive and filled with exciting and healing messages for us all. They have so much to share with us if we’ll only listen.

Science tells us everything in the Universe is composed of always-moving atomic particles, and we know Spirit is everywhere. Therefore, Spirit is within crystals.  You can probably feel major shifts surging through the world today. As the world speeds up, it’s natural for you to want to slow down and ground yourself. Well, crystals can help you do both. Crystals amplify Universal Energy and can help you understand all the new world energies by opening spiritual channels for you, while also reconnecting you to Mother Earth.  These remarkable minerals Crystals amplify Universal energyare present on Earth to assist us in remembering the dynamics of evolution. As we acknowledge and accept our crystal friends we begin experiencing their positive influence. They’ve been patiently awaiting our willingness to interact from a place of intention and truth, to assist us in healing old patterns while elevating our sensitivity to timeless knowledge.

Universe and Nature have come together to create a vast array of combinations and structures within crystals.  Remember that the mineral kingdom happily welcomes you to explore the beauty, power, and joy of crystals.

Well, have I got a crystal for you – Selenite, the all-purpose healing crystal!

All-purpose healing crystal

Selenite is a hydrous calcium sulfate mineral, a form of gypsum crystal and is often called “liquid light”.  It is named after Selene, the Greek goddess of the moon.  Due to the saltwater formation of Selenite and our own saltwater beginnings we resonate with the very essence of this crystal.  This energetic element and tool enables us to create and intensify new seeds of consciousness.

This soft but powerful mineral is beneficial for everyone to work with for clarity and balance.  But be careful, Selenite will dissolve in any liquid.

Here is a simple energy shifting techniques you can do in your office or at home with a Selenite wand or stone.  Sit in a chair and place your bare feet on your stone.  Then sit quietly and feel the energy of Mother Earth beneath your feet, take deep breaths and allow yourself to relax. Continue for about 15 minutes or until you feel balance return to your body.

You can burn white candles in Selenite candle holders for a beautiful and simple way to keep the energy clear when your home is full of people.

Try placing Selenite on any part of your body that feels tight or sore.  Leave it there for about 20 minutes while you breathe and relax, and you will feel the improvement.

To clean your aura, take a Selenite wand or rod and comb it down your body from your head to the bottom of your feet and into the ground, visualize it sucking up all the anxiety, negativity and worries.  This technique is very powerful and takes just a few minutes.

Once you make contact with the energy of your Selenite you will find the best way to use it for your own personal benefit.


Crystals and Candle Therapy

Crystals and candle therapyCrystals and candle therapy have been around for thousands of years in various forms. Some type of candle therapy is used by nearly every religion and healing modality.  Ever since ancient times candles have lit our way through transitions both happy and sad.  They are used for celebrations, processions and ceremonies.  The candle flame creates a tranquil and hypnotic experience for those who allow its power to take their mind away to their special, safe place.

Crystals and candlesThe technique of crystals and candle therapy involves holding your selected crystal or crystals in your hand or placing it next to your candle on a table or on the floor near you, and focusing on the crystal as you meditate.  In a group meditation place the candles and crystals in the center of the group.  Just be sure the entire group focuses on the same intention.

Crystals allow you to reach higher spiritual levels during meditation.  They magnify your personal energy by aligning and connecting with the Universe or Divine Source.  By concentrating on the candle flame you can center your attention and then focus on your intention.

Here are a few suggestions I found for crystals and candle therapy for specific intentions.

For Success:

Take an unscented soy wax candle and lightly coat it in a clockwise motion with cinnamon oil.  As you go around the candle with the oil think of your intention, feel it in your body.  If you don’t have cinnamon oil place powdered cinnamon in the bottom of the candleholder.  Intuitively select 8 crystals which include Carnelian, Citrine, and Amber, and infuse them with your intention.  On a bright, sunny day place the candle in the sunshine, light it and place the crystals in a circle around it focusing on the success you wish to achieve.  Leave the candle burn for about an hour.  Do this daily for a week or until your candle runs out, then carry the crystals in your pocket to keep close the energy of your intention.

For Love:

Choose a rose soy wax candle and Rose Quartz Crystal.   Make some quiet time for yourself, light the candle and sit quietly holding your crystal in your dominant hand over your heart.  Take some deep breaths and focusing on your breathing picture pink light going into your heart chakra from the crystal.  Now imagine that pink light spreading though your whole being, forming a beautiful cloud around your body.  See this pink light infuses your body with love and compassion.  Breathe it in and as you release your breath see all your unwanted feelings and emotions leaving your body and change into tiny pink sparkles that float away.  Do this until your feel renewed.  Then imagine a pink cord or root going down from your feet grounding you to Mother Earth.

For a Good Nights Sleep:

Light a chamomile or amber soy wax candle and breath in the scent focusing on relaxing your body.  Do this for 5-10 minutes to unwind from your day.  Have a Blue Lace Agate and a Blue Calcite in your pocket or next to your candle.  Drink some chamomile tea and let it relax your torso and limbs and when the tea is gone place the candle in your bedroom and blow out the flame letting the smoke permeate your room as you drift off to sleep.

For Abundance:

One of the best ways to work towards increasing your abundance is toCrystals and candle therapy create a crystal grid.  Use a jasmine soy wax candle and hold it in your hands infusing it with your intentions, then place it in the center of your grid.  Select Citrine and Clear Quartz crystals and hold them in your hands imaging them filling up with your goals and desires. Place the Citrine crystals around the candle holder and then place the Clear Quartz in a circle around the Citrine.  Light your candle and imagine the flame spreading to each crystal then picture it spreading past your grid and carrying your intention out to the Universe.  Do this daily for a week or until you intuitively feel it’s time to quit.

Remember to always thank your crystals when done and clear them before using them for another intention.  If your candle wasn’t used up  then do the same with it if you plan to light it again for a different intention.

Crystals and candle therapy is used to enhance your crystal altar or grid or meditation time, it’s another tool to assist you in taking your message out to the Universe.
