Hey Guys,

So yeah, I've been seeing all these photos, bits and pieces of what people do with crystals. I was just wondering If someone could explain what you use them for? Is it a common thing among witches to use? I'm really interested in how it all works and learn how to properly use them to my advantage and craft.

Thanks :flyingwitch:

I would suggest you look through Crystals and Gemstones subforum. You may find some answers there.

The basic idea is that Crystals, by nature of their 6-sided structure, will hold an electrical charge that can be programmed to radiate energy to influence an intention or to transmit information. Different minerals are associated with specific benefits. The simplest way to use a stone is by it's color. The 7 rainbow colors of the visible light spectrum relate to the 7 energy centers of the body (called chakras). A stone of the appropriate color can be programmed to influence the chakra of the same color for healing benefits. The stone is programmed & carried in a pocket or can be held during meditation.

To program a crystal it should be held in your hands & stroked while you think of the intent. Stones aren't big on conversation so using only a few words to convey the instruction is best. And like setting intent into any spell you must know it in your gut & push this knowing into the stone. Any stone will hold this "charge" until something else pushes it out. We can clear stones of their prior programming before re-use by simply placing them on the ground, on a bed of mixed herbs & dry salt, in cleansing moonlight or holding them in flowing water. Soft stones like selenite & kyanite can be damaged by water, & iron rusts, so be careful. Stones with high copper or mercury content can be toxic if soaked in water you plan to drink like stone elixirs.

To use stones for meditation - sit quietly while stroking the stone or laying down with the stone resting on the relevant chakra. Placing 7 stones at the 7 chakras in color sequence would align our energy body with the physical body for healings. Placing various crystal points along the body can direct the flow of energy for trance work. Color sequence is like a rainbow: red at the lowest >> red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, white (i.e., groin, belly button, stomach, heart, throat, forehead, crown).

Combining stones & crystals in geometric layouts can be used for spell crafting. It's pretty much an intuitive exercise when you have a collection to work with. Crystals & stones can be read for divination using their metaphysical properties as guidelines; rolled like dice & reading the combinations.
