Using Crystals

Choosing Crystals: There are hundreds of crystals around, all of which have unique properties that can be used for different things. You could pick a piece based on the meaning of the stone and what you wish to manifest in your life or alternatively follow your instincts and go with one that you’re drawn to. 

Cleansing Your Crystals: You should cleanse and set intentions with your new crystal. There are several ways that you could cleanse your crystals. This includes placing them in sunlight, moonlight or smuding them with sage. It is recommend to research your stone prior to cleansing. Cleansing with water is not recommended for jewellery pieces or certain stones. 

Setting Intentions: Thoughts create vibrations this makes setting intentions a powerful tool for achieving happiness and well-being. Setting an intention with your crystal is a simple task. Simply decide what it is you want to gain, then make a statement of intent as if you have already achieved it. I like to call this  "speaking it into being" . For example if you wish to claim peace you should say "I am at peace" rather than "I want to be at peace". It is best to do this when you are in a quiet space, both physically and mentally.  

Using Crystals: Crystals can be incorporated into your daily life in a number of ways such as holding a crystal during meditation, carrying a crystal with you throughout the day, placing crystals around your house or of course wearing crystals. 

Crystal Jewellery: Jewellery incorporating birth stones or stones of the appropriate colour is a lovely way to gift something both personal and thoughtful to someone. 

Birth Stones: Why not treat yourself or someone else to a piece that is relevant to their birth month or star sign. If you would like to commission a bespoke piece I would be happy and honoured to assist.
