Energy is everywhere and everything, and crystals are no exception. You’ve probably heard people talk about frequency, vibrations and wave lengths. You know, everyone is always “sending good vibes.” These are all different terms referring to the energy you put out into the world. Crystals have their own frequencies and vibrations and when you tap into these energies, that’s where the healing comes in.
Crystals emit different frequencies that help you reach a more peaceful state of mind and a revitalized sense of being. Using healing crystals elevates your overall well-being so you can create harmony between your mind, body and soul.
How to Use Healing Crystals
It doesn’t matter whether you’re entirely new to the world of crystals or you’re a long-time expert, healing crystals are for any and all to use. All you need is an open and willing mind and heart. Looking for useful tips to harness the energy of your healing crystal? Below are 5 of our favorite ways to use healing crystals in your everyday life.
Use Crystals During Meditation
The quiet and stillness of meditation is the perfect time to connect with crystals. You can hold them in your hands, place them on your body, or simply have them sitting near you in your sacred meditation space. Crystals enhance your meditation practice by deepening your connection to yourself and to the Universe, allowing you to unlock your innate inner magic and knowledge that is usually inaccessible during your busy day-to-day life. Each crystal has different healing benefits so the connection you feel will likely vary. Be patient with this practice.
Create Crystal Grids
Crystal grids are an incredible way to magnify the energy of crystals. They are a powerful tool to use during rituals and when manifesting any intention. Set an intention for your grid, choose the crystals you require, select a sacred geometry pattern that resonates with you, and start creating. If you’re new to creating crystal grids, don’t worry! Your patterns don’t need to be very complicated right away. Let your crystals guide you. The more you practice, the easier it will be to create intricate designs.

Crystals for Self Care
Healing crystals are an amazing way to take your self-care to the next level. You’ve probably seen rose quartz or jade face rollers and gua sha sets. That’s because crystals are minerals from Mother Earth that have properties that benefit our little earthling bodies! Everything in the Universe is connected, so when you’re being drawn to a specific crystal, it’s because it’s something your mind, body or soul needs in that moment. There are many ways to incorporate crystals into your self-care routine. Our favorites are including crystals in your bath ritual and even soaking them in the water you use to wash your face.
Place Crystals Throughout Your Home
Crystals hold a unique frequency that can imbue any space. The energies they emit electrify any room they are placed in. Crystals can be incorporated all throughout your home in order to shift the overall energy and feel of your most cherished space. Certain crystals have specific properties so be strategic about where you place them. For example, black tourmaline is a powerful protection stone. It’s best to be kept by the door of your home in order to ward off any negative energies and provide an energetic detox for anyone entering your home. Remember, crystals need to be charged every so often so be sure to place them out in the sunlight or moonlight to recharge their magic!
Wear Crystal Jewelry
Crystals aren’t just powerful spiritual tools; they make gorgeous accessories, too! Wearing crystal jewelry is a beautiful and fashionable way to stay connected to the energy of your healing crystals. Crystals can be wire-wrapped and fashioned into rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc. You can purchase crystal jewelry at any crystal shop, or you can have pieces specifically customized with your chosen stone and intention.
When to Use Your Healing Crystal
Once you’ve activated your crystal with a specific intention, its energy is always working for you! The more contact you have with your crystal, the more aware you will become of its energy. Tuning into the energy of your crystal on a daily basis will strengthen your connection to it, even if just for a brief moment or for an extended period of time. How you work with your crystal is entirely up to you. You can choose to connect with your crystal at specific times each day, like when you’re meditating or journaling or doing yoga. Or you can carry your crystal around with you all day long, tucked away in your pocket, stored in your purse, or even slipped into your bra!
Here’s the beauty about harnessing the energy of crystals—there really are no specific rules or instructions to follow. It’s all very intuitive. Trust your intuition, tune into your inner magic and open up to the power of the Universe. Energy is all around you, and crystals are simply a beautiful tool to further enhance your connection to the magic of life.
