The Rich History of Crystals 

To truly appreciate the fascinating world of crystals, one must delve into their rich history rooted in mythology, mystical teachings, and our ancestral practices. Across cultures and civilizations, crystals have been paired with symbolic meanings and mystical powers. Ancient Egyptians decorated themselves with lapis lazuli for protection and enlightenment, while Chinese emperors prized jade for its association with longevity and prosperity. In medieval Europe, crystals were used in alchemy and believed to possess magical properties. Every culture throughout history has had some sort of connection to crystals and precious stones. Some Crystals grow in the water and some in caves and underground absorbing the earth's energy and healing properties. It is important to keep your crystal charged and clean from the energy around it to allow its healing properties to be most efficient. Check out the 6 Ways to Clean and Recharge your crystals, also known as Crystal Purification.

The Science Behind the Sparkle

While the appeal of crystals often evokes notions of mysticism, their beauty is rooted in scientific principles. Crystals are solid substances with a highly ordered internal structure, formed through the repeated arrangement of atoms or molecules. This atomic arrangement gives rise to their characteristic geometric shapes and optical properties, such as transparency and luster. From quartz to diamond, each crystal possesses unique chemical compositions and physical properties that contribute to its distinctiveness.

We use crystals in different capacities in our modern daily lives, they are used in our quartz watches, microphones, LCDs, electric cars, etc. They can amplify frequencies and energy, store energy, and give out energy.  Human thoughts have frequencies and are measurable by devices such as EEG and MEG. As we connect our intentions to crystals, we can activate crystals' amplifying powers to better serve us. A word of caution is that this amplifying property is a neutral ability of the crystals, they do not choose which thought to amplify or not, so it is best to be cautious and aware of our thoughts when connecting to our crystals so it is from the space of love, healing, and gratitude. It is equally important to recognize the energy that crystals absorb needs to be cleared out regularly.

Exploring Crystal Healing

One of the most enduring beliefs surrounding crystals is their healing properties. These gemstones possess energetic vibrations that can influence physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. From amethyst to rose quartz, each crystal is associated with specific healing properties, such as promoting relaxation, enhancing clarity of mind, or balancing chakras. Despite the wide use of crystals in technology, science is still skeptical about their healing abilities. However, many individuals attest to the profound therapeutic benefits they experience from incorporating crystals into their holistic wellness practices and connecting to Mother Earth’s healing powers. 

Harnessing the Power of Crystals

Beyond their ornamental and metaphysical uses, crystals serve a massive purpose in modern society. From technology to alternative medicine, these gemstones play a significant role in various industries. Quartz crystals, for instance, are essential components in electronic devices, serving as oscillators in clocks and resonators in radios. Additionally, crystals are used in alternative medicine modalities like acupuncture and Reiki to facilitate energy flow and promote healing. According to spiritual and crystal healers, the first thing to do when you purchase or receive a crystal is to purify it. Crystals contain information, so your crystal has recorded all energy, people, events, and places that it has come in contact with since the moment it was formed. 

6 Steps to Crystal Purification and Charging

  1. Ensure your crystal is water-tolerant

It is always best to check if your crystal is water-tolerant or soluble. For example, Dolomite dissolves in water so it would be considered water soluble. Most earth/water-grown crystals are fine in water.

2. Use the correct bowl material

Use a bowl that is glass, wood, or ceramic. Find a size that your crystal can be submerged in. Do not use plastic or metal bowls for this process.

3. Use healthy water

Fill up the bowl with purified, distilled, or spring water, and add a pinch of natural sea salt. If you look closely at natural sea salt, you notice they are in the form of natural cubes, they are soft crystals. When dissolved in water, it creates an electrical charge in the water molecules that is stronger than the charge in the crystal matrix and it will erase the memory of the crystals molecules.

4. Soak the Crystal

The first time, the soaking time needs to be 7 days and 7 nights. This will completely clear the energetic imprints of your crystal and bring it fully to its natural state.

If the crystal is sitting around your home, you can cleanse it once a month or once a season by soaking it in sea salt water for several hours.

5. Charge the Crystal

It is important to charge the crystal in the sun and/or the full moon (especially a moon stone).  Ideally charging it for 24 hours during a new moon or a full moon. Essential oils can also be used, however, they typically cleanse the outside of the crystal while the salt water remedy is meant to clear the entire molecular structure.

If you are using your crystal for healing purposes with close contact with the body (for example the use of Reiki and Crystal healing), be sure to clean it with the salt water solution for 2 to 3 hours after each use to purify it. Check out a session of Reiki with the use of healing crystals.

6. Alternate Cleansing options to try as well

  • Burying them until you feel they have charged enough

  • Using running water

  • Place them on top of other larger crystals or a cluster of them for 24 hours.

  • If moving them around, use a red cloth or bag to protect their energy 

Embracing Crystal Consciousness

If you intend to work with crystals for their healing abilities or manifestation properties, natural crystals that have been formed by natural elements should be used over lab-grown crystals to best amplify your thoughts and desires.  They are truly the stardust that is grown within the heart of our planet and deserving of our love and cherish.

Treat your crystals as friends

Talk to them, love them, meditate with them, establish a relationship, ask them to help you achieve health and homeostasis, and make sure they are in a place that can be seen and receive natural light.
