How To Choose A Crystal

Aug 06, 2019

When I talk to people about crystals one of the most common things I hear is "but I just don't know where to start!" And it can be over-whelming - there are literally thousands of types of minerals, crystals and stones! How does one choose a crystal? But finding the right crystal for you to work with at any given time is simpler than you think.

The methods I'm going to explain here can be used when purchasing a new crystal from a store, or when you're selecting one to work with from your own collection.

Sensing their energy

How To Prevent Empath Burnout

Aug 01, 2019

Many people have commented on my self-confidence. In particular, how I seem to not care what anyone else thinks. Or rather, how I don't let it affect me. Water off a duck's back.

Crystals also need to be cleansed before and after you use them for healing or meditation. Unless they are regularly cleansed, they will hold onto these energies. Furthermore, a crystal may even tell you that it needs to be cleansed - their colour may fade or seem dull, and they just won't feel right to you. Below are some methods you can use to cleanse your crystal and bring back their natural energies.

SMOKE

Immersing your crystals in the smoke of burning Sage or Palo Santo is an easy and popular way to cleanse them. Hold your crystal in the smoke for about 1 minute or until you feel it's vibration start to shift. This method is useful when wanting to cleanse lots of crystals at once as you can...
