Frequently asked questions

How do I cleanse my crystals?


There are many ways to cleanse your crystal(s) and there is no wrong way of doing it. The popular method of cleansing is to gently rinse your crystal under running water or briefly submerge it in a bowl of water. Other popular ways are allowing your crystal to sunbath shortly in a sunny spot for an extra pep in your crystal's step or in the moonlight to bring out the calm aspects of your crystal. However, the best way I recommend is to light your favorite herbal source whether that be white sage or maybe even pablo santo, you'll want to hold your crystal above the stream of smoke, allowing the smoke to dance over and around your crystal for several minutes. Another way is using music for vibrational re-tuning. Music's vibrational waves harmonize the energy of everything around it. Crystals love being around music and live music especially brings them to life and infuses them with a special glow. So, strum a guitar, chant a mantra, or ring some singing bowls or bells. Your crystal won't judge your funky performance but rather cheer you on! To help your crystal(s) feel grounded and close to the earth, place them under the soil for awhile or as long as it "feels" right. Just don't forget to mark where you placed them. An old school traditional method of cleansing is saltwater soaks or burying your crystal(s) in salt however I don't recommend using salt for general cleansing as it can damage or dull the shine and weaken a crystal. But if you use yoru crystals in multiple healing treatments, salt can be a quick and effective purifier for keeping your "worker" crystals fresh. Any way you choose to cleans your crystal(s), always follow your own instincts and what you feel is the best method for that crystal. Every crystal is different and every method is going to be different for each crystal. Take your time and meditate on which way is best for your little buddy.




How do I know which crystal to choose?


The first step to choosing your crystal is to get out of your head and more into your own heart. It's important to trust your instincts on these things. You'll be drawn to many crystals and you'll pass over others. It might be as simple as the color or sparkle or even the size that makes you stop and pause on one and not the other. Non of these specifics matter. Again, it comes down to your intuition. What are you being drawn to? When you've narrowed your search to the ones you like, learn more about them. Look up the meanings and understand WHY you were being drawn to them. Crystals do many things and each crystal does something different. Understand how each one can help or benefit your life. Which one fascinates you the most? Which ones draw you in deeper than the others? It's important to not that different crystals ignite different feelings for different people. For example, one crystal may emit a creative energy for one person, and that same crystal might be more tranquil for someone else. It's also important to develop your own relationship with each stone rather than being told what the crystal is supposed to do for you. You'll start to notice that each crystal has their very own personality and special "something" about themselves.




I've had my crystal for three days. Why isn't it working?


Does a diet work in three days? Does a fitness regiment work in three days? Like any new program, it takes time and consistency to get results. Working with crystals is no different. The "magic" is not the crystal, it's YOU! It's not doing the work, you're not doing the work. It's an ally on your journey. A tool to help you get to where you want or need to go.




I bought my crystal(s), now how do I use it?


Carry it in your pocket or purse Wear it Place it on your altar or nightstand Lay it on your body Meditate while holding it Place it in your bed or under your mattress (depending if it's a tranquil stone)




How do I program my crystal?


Give your crystal a job and a purpose. One of the most important components to working with crystals is setting an intention. Each stone is meant to reflect what it is you want. It wants to work for you but you have to tell it what to do. So, programming your crystal is pretty simple. First, Cleanse your crystal, hold it in your hands, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Reflect on what makes you happy. This will connect you woth your higher vibration. Then, while in this space of love and light, ask that your crystal be cleared of all unwanted energy. Aloud or in your mind, say, "I ask that the highest vibration of love and light connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy. I command this crystal to hold the intention of _____________" to finish the sentence, add three to five intentions for your crystal that you wish it to hold for you. End by repeating "thank you" three times. By saying it three times, you emphasize that what you're asking for already exists in the universe.
