Whether it’s your school, your vacation or your life in general, it’s important to make the most out of every opportunity. Healing crystal jewelry is no different. At Energy Muse, our crystals represent an opportunity to enhance your energy, and manifest positive intentions. Crystals are tools that you can use to help you make the changes that you need to make for a better life. As tools, crystals can’t work unless you work with them. If you expect your crystal to do all the work, you can expect to be disappointed. But if you are willing to invest your own energy in the process, the capacity for your crystallized transformation is boundless. To take advantage of your crystal opportunity, follow these easy steps to make the most out of your jewelry.
You can’t expect your crystals to magically transform your life overnight – it’s not magic. They require time and dedication. A crystal’s energy vibrates with properties that are uniquely suited to connect with our own energy and intention. These properties can cleanse, align and even uplift our energy field. So while some crystals may bring peace of mind, others will stimulate drive. Once you have determined what energy you need to bring into your life, you can pick the crystal with the energy to match. We’ve put together a list of our favorite tips to getting the most of your healing crystal jewelry:
Cleanse Your Healing Crystal Jewelry Regularly
Cleansing your crystal jewelry is an important step because it purifies the crystal of any energies it may have picked up throughout the day, and assures that you are working from a clean energetic slate. To cleanse your jewelry, you can smudge it with the smoke of burning sage or palo santo, place under the sun or moon for at least four hours, bury it in soil for several hours or let it cleanse overnight on a piece of quartz or a selenite crystal.
Give It a Job
Set an intention for what you would like accomplish with your healing crystal jewelry. We call this giving your crystal a job. Everyone – including a crystal – is more productive when they have a sense of direction. Giving your jewelry a job infuses it with the energy of what you want it to help you with, so it can send that intention out into the universe. This practice is also beneficial in that it helps you to reaffirm what progress you would like to make in your life. Remember, this is a journey that you and your crystals are going on together.
It’s All About Consistency
With the exception of the shower and when you go to sleep, wear your crystal jewelry consistently for a period of time – 10 days, 21 days or, our personal favorite, 40 days. This period of time solidifies the energetic bond between you and your crystals, and the purpose of your work together. True change requires consistency. In programming your crystal with the energy of your intention, you are also programming your mind with positive affirmations. You are instilling beneficial behaviors, and phasing out the negative thought patterns that were holding you back in life. Forgetting to wear it for even one day breaks this cycle. If you skip a day, we recommend starting the process over, so that you can program your healing crystal jewelry constantly for the full 40 days. This attention to conviction will elevate your personal power and open you up to recognize and take advantage of the new opportunities that the universe sends your way.
Keep Track of Your Journey
Document what’s happening so you can go back and look at the progress you’ve made. The ups and downs, and everything in between. Sometimes things we see as a negative at the time actually open us up to new opportunities and breakthroughs down the road. Keep a mindfulness journal of your experience. If you’re not someone who likes to write it down, keep audio recordings! Choose whatever medium feels right for you.
YOU are the Magic
Like any new program, it takes time and consistency to get results. Working with your crystal jewelry is no different. But the magic is not the crystal; it’s you. It’s not doing the work, you’re doing the work. You have the power to reclaim your life and make choices to move you in the direction that you want to go in. The crystals are allies on your journey. Tools to help you get to where you want to go.
