There are three steps to effective crystal healing. While
you are wearing your crystals as jewelry or in a pouch at your heart
center, the crystal vibrations work continuously on your imbalances.
The Cleansing Process
The first step is the cleansing process. In first week or so, the crystal
is making tremendous adjustments within your energy field, matching the
matrix of your energy fields to a larger outer universal energy field
which will be used in your healing.
It is important to keep the crystal on you all the time
(24 hours a day) for at least the first 21 days for this cleansing process
to be initiated and completed. This is also a period of time where the
blockages of energy that are causing the imbalance are removed.
Sometimes a healing crisis occurs at this point, during
the early days of wearing the crystal. Remember, resolving the inner
conflict may take time and that crystals accelerate the change process.
Allow these processes to occur without interruption, by continuously
wearing the stone or crystal until you complete the next two steps.
It is a good idea to cleanse your crystal every week and
to recharge it in the sunlight for at least four hours weekly through
out the healing process.
Harmonizing and Integrating
The second step in crystal healing is the process of
harmonizing and integrating the changes into your whole being. You may
notice physical and emotional changes in either of the first or second
steps as your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies come into
alignment. Some of these changes are caused by throwing off toxins and
negative energies from the cleansing process which continues throughout
the cycle of healing.
In the second stage, beginning in about the fourth week of
wearing the stone or crystal, you may notice that your face looks more
relaxed as the harmonizing connection is made within yourself. Your mental
outlook, thoughts, feelings and even opinions may change significantly.
All aspects of your energy will be activated and the result is a very
positive feeling. However, you are not out of the woods yet!
The third step can take three to four months, perhaps even
longer for some people depending on the intensity of the original
condition. With continuous wearing of the stones or crystals, you will
achieve stability for the changes. There is no turning back at this point.
You can test out the stability by removing your crystals
from time to time. If you feel desperate and need to put your crystals
back on after only a few minutes, you are not even close to stabilizing
the energy changes. If you are able to go for a few days without your
stones, but then notice you are slipping back into your old ways, consider
wearing your stones for another week or more, or only at bedtime before
testing again. As you develop deeper sensitivity for crystal energy, you
may decide to keep the crystals on much longer.
Some Hints On Crystal Healing
Your commitment to the crystal is part of the healing
process. Let the crystal do the work for you. It is best not to wear more
than two stones at any one time if you are new to crystal healing, as many
people find the effects too distracting. The length of time to obtain the
effects desired will depend on the quality of the crystal (size, color,
energy charge), location of wear, duration, and the crystal's
appropriateness to your healing. Some crystals are better suited to
healing the overall problem which underlies the symptoms, than to just
treating superficial symptoms. Select your crystal with an honest outlook
on the real problem.
