Crystals and Gemstones.

Crystals and gemstones are carriers of great energy and depending on the stone are very specific in the qualities they behold. Many, even all crystals are used in multiple practices. These practices are used by those who understand and honour the attributes that crystals carry. When using crystals it is important to keep in mind that crystals and gems stones are as powerful as the beholder's belief.

Giving your crystals unbound belief allows them to energize to their highest potential.
There are many, many varieties of crystals. Amethyst, jasper, rhodinite, ruby, citrine, prenite, obsidian, lapiz lazuli, bloodstone, gold stone, selinite and quartz are just a few available crystals you can find easily in any spiritual type store for only a few dollars. These crystals can provide a multitude of uses.

Many energy healers use the healing qualities, placing them are various parts of your body. They are used to strengthen the connection to spirit in prayer, magik and meditation. They are carried and worn as protection from negative energy. They are wonderful to have in home even if just for their beauty.

When you purchase or are given a crystal or gemstone it is good practice to first cleanse your crystal. You can do this in a number of ways. The method you will hear most about is placing your crystal in salt water for couple hours to allow the energy to be cleansed. Another way to cleans is to smudge your crystal with herbs, burning herbs such as sage, lavender, or rosemary and running your crystal through it will also do the job. 24 hours in the sun light, even moon light or visualizing purifying white light are other examples of how you could cleanse your new crystal.

Once your crystal is cleansed you now need to energize it through your thoughts and intentions. Hold your crystal in your hands and see your crystal being energized with it's specific qualities. Believe in their power and they will serve you well. Once you have used your crystal for a specific reason, such as protection from a negative conversation, you should cleanse your crystal again, and of course re energize before it's next use. Ornamental pieces or large pieces that serve to say...offer calmness to a room should periodically be cleansed as well.

Crystals and gemstones offer many qualities and are most beautiful and most are reasonable in price, it is worth your time to do some research on what crystals can help you.
