Your Pretty Things
So now that you have these pretty crystals and all these beautiful colours, hanging out in your home. How can you really care for these and how can you utilise the energies that they create for you. Firstly, I'm just going to talk over how to care for your crystals. This has touched briefly in our safety and care page, but more specifically, it is important that you do cleanse and charge your babies.
So I challenge you just to have a look at your crystals just think to yourself, does this need cleansing? If the first answer that comes to your mind is no. Take it. Don't overthink it. That is the answer, that is your intuition talking to you. We want to be able to work through these crystal energies for you to be able to understand your intuition, a lot more.
If you get that feeling that yes you do need to cleanse it. You can use fresh water. I personally love to collect rainwater off the roof as it is the easiest freshwater to come across. Unless you live close to a river ocean or lake that is quite fresh and you'll be able to tell when you're cleansing the crystal, whether it's working or not.
Another way to cleanse them is using Sage, been able to burn Sage over them. You're welcome to do both of these with your crystals, but in terms of washing with fresh water... Don't wash crystals that end in 'its'.
This would include your crystals such as, fluorite, apatite, calcite and more! By putting these in water you'll actually end up tarnishing them, and you'll find out that they will eventually break down. Not healthy for your babies!
In terms of being able to charge them. This can be done with the sunlight, you can leave them out in the sun to charge, but the strongest charge you can get is through the full moon that comes once a month. Just put all your crystals on your windowsill, or put them outside on the grass. And this will charge them back up.
The reason we have to charge and cleanse our crystals - say you have a rose quartz for all that love and compassion and building strong relationships. If anything interferes with that energy, the crystal will use its energy to defer it or absorb it. So it's literally like having your phone, it's gonna run out of that charge, and it's going to need that resetting to be able to be back to its optimal strength.
Well... how you can use your crystals. I would be careful and mindful of how many you have in your room, as crystals can chatter to each other. So if you find that you've added crystals to your sleeping space, and you can't sleep. Just think about removing one or two of them from that environment, and popping them somewhere else to talk all night. In the meantime, you'll be able to find that right combination in using that intuition of yours, or muscle testing.
Ways you can use your crystals is one either under your pillow or in your pillow case, OR under the bed! You can get two crystals that work really well together, and we can get both of them sitting under the headspace of you and your partner to enlighten your sleep and spiritual awareness. You can carry crystals around in your pocket, or if you're a female in your bra, which I personally do all the time.
You can find crystals that are on pendants, and you can wear the crystals as jewelry. Every day! You can pop them in a cage we can wrap them up for you to wear around your neck and it's where you can change which one you wear each day.
A very nifty trick that I'm going to share with you is that you can build a pyramid so just make a 3D Pyramid. Any pyramid shape, whether it's square or triangle. And you can sit it in a room or space in your house and pop a crystal or a couple underneath it or inside that pyramid. Write down on a piece of paper what you want to specifically work on, this is so those crystals constantly working with that symptom, or quality that you are wanting to either clear or enhance.
I hope this has given you a couple of nifty tricks and some education around what exactly you can do with your crystal beauties. If you would like to know more, just feel free to contact me, and I will be able to help you.
Lots of love and broomsticks,
