Our crystal therapy session is a “how to” discussion about choosing the crystals that are right for you. When venturing into a new mode of healing, it is important to stay engaged with that mode to the best of your ability. Making sure that you have the right tools is an integral part of the process. This week we will discuss how to pick the right crystals for you, and three ways of identifying crystals that will benefit your crystal therapy sessions.
Visually Appealing Crystals for Crystal Therapy
When choosing crystals for your crystal therapy it is important to make sure you are choosing crystals that are visually appealing. Whether it is a jewelry piece, a carved or polished piece, or a raw crystal; it is important that the crystal be aesthetically pleasing. Finding crystals that are pleasing to the eye will encourage you to use them more regularly, and also place them in strategic regions of your home or office.
Beauty is a natural part of the order of the universe. Beauty is a reflection of the love that is holding everything together within the cosmos. By selecting visually appealing crystals they are a reflection of the love that is available for us at our most optimum state of human expression.
Beauty is certainly in the eyes of the beholder, so be sure to pick something that is right for you. Allowing yourself to be surrounded by beauty is another way for you to love yourself, and you will be more prone to interact with the healing energy of crystals when you resonate with their beauty.
Feeling the Crystals for Crystal Therapy
Crystals carry a resonate energy field through their matrices that are developed when they are formed. When I am considering crystals for crystal therapy I pay attention to how they make me feel. I hold them, and put my attention on how they make me feel.
Energy is a language that exists within our universe. We use energy to communicate in interpersonal relationships as well as in our interactions with inanimate objects in our lives. The most prevalent energy related example is when you walk into someone’s house. Some houses we walk into have a light, free energy, and this is often a reflection of those who live in that house. Other times we walk into a house and feel heavier. Both experiences are a reflection of the resonate energy communication that is taking place between you and the house. This is why, if you are not already doing so, you need to make sure you are putting loving energy in the rooms of your house and office, and placing crystals in strategic points to increase the vibrations within your dwelling or workplace.
Nearly all crystals will provide you with a sense of wellness when you put your attention on their energy. The way I choose the crystals that are right for me is I pay attention to the peak feelings that I get when I handle them. To explain this in a different way, I pay attention to the uniqueness of the crystals. When I find a crystal that provides not only the sense of wellness, but also a unique energy vibe, I know that one is right for me and my healing journey.
Listening To Your Guidance for Crystal Therapy
In all healing modalities it is extremely important to listen to your inner voice. There is a verse in the Bible that says, “The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness, and self- control.” This is a reflection of what God sounds like, and can be referred to in many different ways. Some people call it the Holy Spirit, the higher self, the Christ consciousness, the Buddha nature, etc. Labels are less important than experience, but giving language to something can often allow us to engage at a higher level.
When you are choosing the ideal crystals for your crystal therapy make sure you are listening to that voice of love within you, and follow it. When discussing “feeling the crystal,” we were discussing how the crystals energy influences you. By listening to your inner guidance you are listening to that voice of guidance within you to ascertain what kind of impact the crystal will have in your healing journey.
To do this follow the first two steps provided in this tutorial. Then take a moment and close your eyes, and center yourself. Find that place within you that is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness, and self-control, then breath into that place. Take two or three deep breaths and direct those breaths into that part of your consciousness. Then listen for the answer. Sometimes a crystal can be very beautiful and have good “unique” energy, but it is meant for someone else. Follow this inner instinct. Sometimes you will get a “no”, other times you will get a profound “yes”, and you may even get a message from your inner self to buy the crystal, and then find out later that it was for another person and related to their healing journey. Pay attention to this voice of love, because it will never steer you wrong.
One thing to keep in mind when you are developing a crystal therapy practice is that crystals can certainly aid us in discovery and assist us in bringing about change. However, the reality is that if we remain unwilling to change in certain areas of our lives the crystals themselves will have little effect. It is important with all healing practices that you take a holistic approach, and adopt methods that assist you in many ways. Crystal energy is often subtle, but when someone aligns their intention with it through action it can create wonderful results. My prayer is that each person reading this article will find the strategies that work best for them to bring healing to themselves and therefore the planet.
I look forward to speaking with you!
