How to Work with Crystals

Have you been curious about crystals? Aside from their dazzling beauty, crystals also have powerful healing and manifestation capacities. 

People have been harnessing the power of crystals for thousands of years. Crystal magick is an ancient knowledge that each of us have the ability to tap into. 


Some say that crystals are the heart of Gaia, the Mother Earth. When you hold a crystal in your hand, you are holding the heart of the Mother, connecting to her directly and receiving her high vibrational loving and healing energy.

Crystals transfer their high vibrational energy into anyone connecting with them, therefore strengthening one's energy field. They can also absorb negative energies, helping you to make space in your energy field for positive energy.

When we function at a higher vibration, we have a greater capacity to heal, love and live in balance and abundance. 

There are so many wonderful crystals to choose from. It can be overwhelming, so where to start? Rose quartz, clear quartz, amethyst, selenite and aventurine are some great crystals to start with, or add to your ever growing crystal collection. 

Here’s a rundown of each of these stones and their unique properties:

Rose quartz- Light pink crystal that aids in emotional healing, bringing relationships into harmony and accessing higher love vibrations. 

Clear quartz- Clear colored crystal that can amplify the healing abilities of other crystals, unblocking energy in the body and connecting with higher consciousness within oneself.

Amethyst- Purple colored crystal that has powerful overall healing capabilities as well as aiding in spiritual development. It is also a powerful protector.

Selenite- This whitish clear crystal is great for cleansing rituals. It clears negative energy and emits a peaceful energy. You can also use it to cleanse your other crystals. 

Aventurine- This stone can come in green, red, blue, or brown. Use green aventurine to increase your finances and attract money to you. Aventurine is a natural good luck charm!

There are so many ways to program your crystals, charge them, cleanse them and use them. It would be great for you to do some research and see what methods work best for you. 


Here are a few simple tips on how to use your crystals from us at Saged:

- Regularly cleanse your crystals by smudging them with sage. Just pass them through the smoke until you feel that they are cleansed. It is normal for crystals to carry the negative energies that they sometimes absorb, so cleansing them is necessary.

- Meditate with your stones. Hold your crystals and close your eyes. When you meditate, allow the energies from the stones to absorb into your body. Imagine a brilliant white light radiating from the stones and into your body.

- Carry crystals with you in your purse or pocket, or wear them as jewelry. They will infuse your energy field with their high vibrations throughout your day.

- Sleep with crystals next to your bed or under your pillow for peaceful sleep or amplified lucid dreaming abilities.

- Take baths with your crystals. Some crystals cannot go in water, so be sure to do some research before you use crystals in a bath. Light a candle, place your crystals in the water or next to it, and submerge yourself in their healing energies.
