Using crystals is a great way to begin accessing information for yourself and others, and can gently open you up to greater levels of spiritual and psychic gifts and awakening.
Although quartz crystals are the most common stone for this sort of connection, I believe that you need to work with the crystal you are drawn to. My very first working stone was an aventurine shaped roughly like a heart that fit nicely in the palm of my hand. (For more information on how to choose a crystal click here.)
Crystals are great teachers. They can hold much wisdom, and allow us to tap into information stored within us, within our Higher Selves, within the Akashic Records, and within Guides and other energetic Beings.
When I was young I never, ever thought I would be able to channel or do work at the level I am at now. I was such a skeptic even though my own natural abilities had been evident much of my life. I was okay with receiving information as it came to me, but felt very uncertain about attempting to make it happen deliberately. I was uncomfortable with even trying this sort of activity, but I found as my resistance decreased and I became more open, things flowed much more easily.
So it doesn’t matter if you feel awkward or uncomfortable with today’s activity – just enter with a sense of innocence and childlike curiosity and you might be amazed at what comes to Light. ♥
Meditation for Accessing Guidance and Information from a Crystal:
Choose a stone you feel drawn to work with, clease it and then sit somewhere comfortable so that you can follow this meditation. You may like to burn incense or light a candle to further enhance your experience.
It is useful to keep a journal to record any impressions, information or names from your meditation sessions. You might even feel inspired to draw or paint!
(PS – The stone I used today during this meditation was a Canadian Labradorite – that’s it in the picture below.)
Storing and handling crystals
If possible, wrap crystals you are not using, or that you are transporting, in a natural fabric such as silk, cotton, wool, linen or hemp. Use your intuition when selecting fabrics – maybe a patterned scarf, a scrap of velvet, a bag you found at the markets, or even a pretty handkerchief could be used.
Once you have cleansed your crystals, be selective about who you allow to touch them because stones will absorb the energies of the people who handle them. You may find that there are some stones you need to keep just for you, while others may invite handling from anyone! After working with a stone for a long time, and investing a lot of your own energy into it, you may find that just holding that stone will take you to a positive, calmer, more meditative or healing state.
