Using crystals to practice the universal laws has been around for thousands of years, and for those of you who may be using the visualization and manifestation programs, I believe you will find this information to be interesting.
I was introduced to crystals by my best friend 35 years ago, but it wasn’t until 7 years ago that I decided to really incorporate them into my life. Especially when my research revealed they could be used to eliminate negative energy from your surroundings. Needless to say I have more than just a few negative family members who love to come over and vent about all their troubles, so I decided to place crystals in every room of my home.
Now there are a lot of crystals out there, and of course I can’t get into details about all of them, so what I’ve listed below is just a small sample of how they can be used. If you are interested in using crystals when practicing any aspect of the universal laws, then I would suggest doing a little research so that you can uncover more ways to use them.
First however, let me give you a little background information about them before we get into how they are used.
The Forming Of Crystals
There are a few ways they can be formed. Some are formed from the magma of the earths interior and some are formed in the volcanic lava streams that reach the earths surface.
When molecules and atoms, under tremendous heat, are combined with whatever mineral is available, crystals are formed. When the lava cools slowly large crystals are formed, but when the lava cools rapidly small ones are formed.
No one knows how long it takes for most of them to form, but some think it may take thousands of years. Others say that when the elements are right, they could form in an instant.
Their molecules however, are formed symmetrically that is repeated in the exact same pattern throughout the entire crystal. Because of this, it is believed they radiate energy in a consistent and steady manner.
Cleaning Your Crystals
If you want to continue using crystals for success, then you have to clean them periodically. It has been suggested that one of the easiest ways to wash them is by using clear spring water which is the same as bottled water. Put 1/2 cup of sea salt to 1 cup of spring water.
Soak them for 8 to 24 hours. Then dry in either the sun or moonlight. The length of time they soak and how you dry them depends on the crystal.
Clearing Your Crystals
Crystals also have to be cleared after each use. Clearing your crystals removes any unwanted negative vibrations from previous use. Its also important to clear them when you first purchase them.
Lots of people may have handled your crystal so you want to remove all the negative energy that passed from them to it. Two of the easiest ways to clear it is by placing it pointed end down in sea salt for 24 hours depending on the stone. Another way is to pour a bottle of spring water over it and place it in the sun to dry.
Bonding With Your Crystals
Okay, bonding with them is also important. Its yours now and you want it to be in tune to your mind and your vibration. This is something that should be done with every one you purchase.
Find a quite place, hold it in your hand, close your eyes. Try to feel it with your mind, feel its energy, its texture. Do this for a few minutes then open your eyes. Look at your crystal, notice the color, the shape, the flaws. Become familiar with every part of it.
Doing this helps to create a permanent image of your crystal in your mind. Now you can either program it or wait until later.
Programming Your Crystals
Remember our thoughts are energy and when programming a crystal for success, were putting the energy of our feelings and thoughts into the energy pattern of our crystal. They intensify and radiate whatever we give them.
So its important to be sure of our intentions when programming them. Make sure you have your intentions in mind before programming.
Hold it in both hands, gaze into it. Breath slow and deep breaths. Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Concentrate on what you want to program into your crystal. As you inhale, visualize the image of what you want and imagine how it feels to have it.
On each exhale, send what you desire into it. Clearly visualize what you want, once you can do this your intention will be programmed into the crystal. This particular vibration will be stored in it until you replace it with a new intention. Once youve programmed it it will radiate the energy of your intention until you program it for something else.
Smooth Your Irregular Energy Patterns
This is one of the reasons why people believe crystals work so well with us. Our energy pattern is not smooth and regular but scattered and somewhat erratic, and the symmetrical energy patterns from crystals tend to make ours regular and smooth.
Its also been said that because of these symmetrical energy patterns, they can be used to quiet the mind that will in turn help us focus on realizing our goals.
Our thoughts vibrate at a high and light rate of frequency while matter vibrates at a slow and dense frequency. If you could look at the vibrating energy in crystals however, you would see they vibrate at a very high frequency.
You would also discover that they arent really matter, but are very subtle vibrations that are said to be attuned to the cosmic force. They are capable of containing, receiving, projecting, refracting, and reflecting light, this is the highest form of energy known in the physical world.
They also have a way of unblocking psychic and physical energy. You can use them to find clarity in your intentions, to focus, for mediation and spiritual enlightenment.
