Ways how to infuse crystal healing into your life…

You can simply use these crystals by carrying them with you or wearing them as jewelry. For example, creating your own crystal medicine pouch with the purpose of helping you to cope with your depression can energetically shift your mindset to healthier and more positive.

Crystals can also be used in a more active way by engaging with them through meditation, crystal body layouts, or crystal grids. There are multiple ways to meditate with crystals. You can devote as little as 5 minutes to sit quietly with your crystal and tune into its energy. Or you may want to try a longer guided meditation with your crystals.

Using crystals in layouts can be as simple as placing a crystal over a corresponding chakra. For example, if you wanted to promote healthy emotional balance, you might try placing Sunstone over your Sacral Chakra. To help enhance positivity, a Citrine crystal could be held over your Solar Plexus Chakra, or to provide comfort and support, you could place a Rose Quartz over your Heart Chakra.

You can allow your intuition to guide you in placing a larger crystal layout on and around your entire physical body. It can have an incredibly strong harmonizing effect to both your physical and energetic bodies. Listening to your intuition and inner guidance about what will best support you is crucial, however, you may also consult your medical advisor if you feel like.

Another wonderful technique that you could use is crystal gridding. In a crystal grid the healing crystals are placed in concise geometric arrangement to affect the flow of energy for a specific purpose. The properties of the crystals used, combined with their geometric placement creates a unique energy frequency that can be used to enhance your intention and encourage healing.

Make your Happiness booster Crystal Grid…

Give it a try! Here is a step by step mini guide on how to create your grid:

  1. Create a purpose or intention for your grid. It’s important to frame your intention for a grid in a positive way. For example, instead of an intention to “Remove Depression”, you should frame your intention concisely “to enhance happiness and positivity” or “to create emotional balance”. Write it down on a small piece of paper to later be placed in the center of your grid.
  2. Select the crystals you will use for your grid. You can choose from my recommendations above or go ahead and explore Crystal Guru (from the CRYSTAL HEALING COOL KIT).
  3. Cleanse yourself, your space, and your crystals of all negative or unwanted energy. Wash yourself and your crystals physically, then burn a sage smudge or incense stick in the place where you are going to set up the grid.
  4. Ground and center yourself with a little intro meditation.
  5. Place each crystal while focusing on your intention into a geometric arrangement, making sure to follow the lines of the geometry of the shape. You can use, for example, the Flower of Life Crystal Grid Cloth. Any intuitively chosen geometrical shape will do too, just keep in mind that proper alignment is necessary for proper energy flow.
  6. Place your written intention under the center crystal of your crystal grid. If you do not have a stone in the center of your grid, you may place your written intention in the center area, or somewhere near your grid.
  7. Activate your crystal grid:
    • To activate and enhance the energy of the grid, you may use a clear Quartz crystal point to link all crystals within the grid.
    • Point your wand over the center stone. Set your intention to channel universal love energy through your point for activation. Visualize each of these connections as lines of white light, linking the energy of each individual stone into one cohesive unit.
    • Moving from the center, “draw” a line to a stone on the outside of the grid.
    • Moving clockwise, “draw” a line to the next stone on the outside of the grid and then back to the central stone.
    • Move back up this same line to the stone you just came from, then clockwise to the next outside stone, and then back again to the center.
    • Continue in this fashion until you have connected all stones and arrive back in the center of the grid.
    • Finally, point the termination of your laser wand toward the center of the grid to infuse it with universal energy so that it may carry out its purpose.
  8. Devote time each day to connect to the energy and intention of your grid. You may choose to do this by meditating, by drawing energy into your body from the grid, by sending energy to your grid, etc. This will make your grid a personal powerhouse or healing, and will help to amplify the energy of your intention.
