When using crystals in a therapeutic way it is best to develop a method of crystal charging for your practice. Most practitioners agree that using some form of ritual or energy healing method is the best way to activate the energy matrix inside of crystals. Here are three of the most common ways to activate the energy matrix in crystals. It is best to do these ritual practices after the crystals have been cleansed. For more about cleansing crystals please review the previous blog related to cleansing crystals.
Method One: Using Other Crystals to Charge Crystals
This is a very simple method crystal charging and activating the matrix energy within a crystal. It is best to have a previously charged crystal or find crystals that have a natural matrix charge such as selenite, and some forms of quartz. If you already have some crystals that you use in your practice that have been charged using another method you can use those crystals to charge the matrix in your newly cleansed crystals. To activate the matrix energy within the crystal, simply place the two crystals together for an extended period of time. I recommend at least seven days. This will allow the crystal you are charging to naturally pick up the vibrational energy associated with the naturally charged or previously charged crystals.
Method Two: Using Reiki to Charge Crystals
Another method of crystal charging is to use Reiki. Reiki is a form of energy healing that follows the tradition of the founder Dr. Mikao Usui. To become a Reiki practitioner there are three attunements necessary (or more) depending on the branch of Reiki that you desire to use. Once you are a practitioner you can use the healing techniques you have learned and attuned to during your sessions to naturally charge the crystal. There is no set guideline for how long to charge a crystal, but for the most part the practitioner can easily determine how long is necessary for maximum benefit.
Method Three: Using the Moon or Sun to Charge Crystals
This is another method for effective crystal charging, and activating the matrix energy within crystals. You can use the energy of the full moon to charge the matrix within crystals. This normally takes one night, but it is best during full moon phases. Many other practitioners will use sunlight to charge their crystals. This is recommended for clear or white crystals only, because sunlight can often dampen the vibrant colors that exist within other crystals. This is a good way to charge a single crystal for the purpose of charging your colored crystals if you prefer the sun’s vibratory energy over the moon’s vibratory energy. Matrix charging can occur in a very short time when placed in the sun. Normally one to two hours.
These are by no means a complete list of charging rituals. It is best to find the method that works for you. One thing to remember about crystals is they respond to intention. They can certainly aid us in discovery and assist us in bringing about change, but 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!
