What Are Crystals and How Do They Work?

How a crystal is formed, gives each crystal it’s own unique capacity or healing attributes. They are literally a representation of the earths history. Depending on how deep the crystal sat within the layers of the earth, if it was created under heat, pressure, erosion, water or air will determine what characteristics it has. Each has a unique internal crystalline structure, giving it a unique energetic pattern and each shape too has an impact on the crystal’s abilities.

How do Crystals Work?

Crystals work on an energetic level. Meaning that they can help to elevate you into a certain level of vibration or keep you at a certain level of vibration.

Think about your favorite song and how it makes you feel (happy, energetic, healthy and vibrant). Every time you put that song on, you know how it will make you feel. You can seek out a particular song because you want to feel happy and elated. Crystals work in a similar way, they energetically raise you up to the level you want to be or hold you there, depending on what you’re looking for and how you use the crystal.

You can wear crystals in certain places for particular effects or you can place them in certain areas of your home or office for specific results.

Choosing a Crystal

Generally speaking, people tend to choose one that feels right. You can choose it based on the description that often sits with the crystal in the store or by the look and feel of it. Sometimes, in a Kinesiology session, a particular crystal will test up for a client in order to help them to achieve a particular goal like sleeping well, feeling calm, feeling more confident to name a few.

Cleansing your Crystals

People often forget to cleanse their crystals. Here’s why it’s so important. If you keep a crystal in your pocket for instance and it’s a crystal that is meant to help elevate your confidence, it works extra hard to raise your vibration and as it does, it sucks away the negative or lower vibration. The crystal can only hold so much of the lower vibration, before it is unable to do it’s job in the best way possible because it has no room for the positive elements.

Here’s how to cleanse your crystals:

  1. Sit them under running water for a few minutes to shift the energy
  2. Sit them in a bowl of salt water
  3. Put them on the window ledge on the full moon (yes, it’s quirky but it works)
  4. Bury them in the back yard for a day (this works by returning them to their “home” for a little refresh, after all that’s where they came from)

There are hundreds of crystals with many different qualities so have a look next time you’re near a crystal store or stall holder and if something looks or feels nice, then pick it up and have a read of it’s qualities.  We’re often drawn to the ones we need the most at that point in time.
