How do crystals work?  

Let’s take for example a wrist watch as many models contain a quartz. This crystal oscillator creates a signal with a precise frequency and these signal cycles are then converted into time displays, showing units of hours, minutes and seconds.

Like our wrist watch we also use crystals to resonate with our own energy. Crystals are formed deep inside the earth’s mantle, a melting pot of various materials and energy. This absorbed and stored energy gives crystals the power to heal, calm or enhance our energy. Their individual power depends on how the crystal was formed, its shape and structures and its mineral content.

An easy way to distinguish between crystals is their shape and colour. We all have particular needs and they may vary during our lifetime and according to situations we find ourselves in. Sometimes we need crystals to give us energy (for example after an illness), but at other times, for example after a stressful exam or job interview, we need an energy to calm us down and get chakras again. At other times again we may look more for strength to get us through bereavement or separation.

How to use crystals

  1. In my view the best and most convenient way is to wear them as jewellery items. You can wear them as rings, bracelets, amulet and they don’t just look pretty, but also help you throughout the day. This is not a new invention, but looking back at every possible civilisation, there has hardly been one where no jewellery was present. Then you can combine their good looks with a practical way of using their energy.
  1. Drink water enhanced by crystals. I used to have a sun stone and whenever I felt a bit lethagic or lack of energy, I would leave the sun stone in a position of full sun light, so he absorbed the full energy of the sun. Then I put it into mineral water and drank it and it really helped to get my energy levels up.   First choose the right crystal for you and cleanse it under running water. Then add the stone(s) to either still mineral or filtered tap water. A crystal the size of a medium sized coin will energise one glass of water. It makes sense to use a larger container and once you have chosen the right crystals, add them to the water and cover Cover the water up with the crystals inside and leave to stand for about 24 hours, then consume during the next day. Here is some more information 
  1. Laying on crystals on the naked skin. Choose the right crystals and move crystals over your chakras. This needs a bit more knowledge and is best left to do for a practicioner who knows all about energy lines of the body. But if someone is knowlegable enough and knows how to use crystals, you feel a small sensation. If there is no reaction at all, it means that your energy is blocked and needs to be aligned first, before this treatment can be started.
