How do I choose my stones?
It is said that crystals and gemstones choose us rather than the other way around. I can affirm this with my own experiences and it amazes me how incredible these treasure of the earth are!
Tips for Choosing the right stone:
Clear your mind off all thoughts - Breathe and Centre yourself - Allow your senses to completely relax and trust that the stones you are drawn to is determined by your openness to receiving the right stone. Trust is key. You may be surprised at how well this works!
How do I use my crystal to realign my energies?
Hand Held Crystal Healing
If you have an area of over-energy, it can often be identified by a feeling of congestion, heat, pain, tention, irritation, frustration or anger.
Place the palm of your left hand over that area. Hold the Quartz Crystal in your right hand with its point away from you directed at the ground. As you breathe deepely and evenly, begin to relax and imagine all excess energy releasing from your body and passing out through the crystal. Remember, crystals are carriers and tranmuters of LIGHT. Light is energy. And your thoughts (guided by your imagination) will greatly enhance the effectiveness of the healing.
With your thoughts, know that the energy that the crstal is transmitting to the earth will harm no-one or no thing and that the Earth will absorb the energy and teturn it to Source energy: cleansed and purified. Moving the crystal in circles may help you to imagine the process more clearly.
When there is the need to recharge your vitality or if you have some need for extra healing energy, hold the quartz in your right hand pointing in towards the area concerned. Hold your left hand out from your body with the palm facing upwards. As you breathe deeply and evenly, imagine healing energies from the universe passing from your upturned hand through the crystal and into your body.
Taking care of healing stone jewelry
For thousands of years precious and semi-precious stones have been worn for their beneficial metaphysical properties. Wearing crystals is a useful way to help maintain the body's energy levels, but remember the stone can only help you if its own energy is clean! Place your jewellery on a crystal cluster to cleanse it or place it in brown rice overnight. If crystal jewellery isn't cleansed regularly (we suggest weekly and especially over full and new moons) they cannot process unbalanced energies and these may even be reflected back into your auric field, making matter even worse.
Wear one stone at a time to increase its effectiveness on your emotional bodies.
How does crystal healing work?
Quartz Crystal healers say that it works because everything is energy and vibrates at various frequencies and that crystals work via these vibrations. Every living thing has a vibrational energy system, which includes chakras, subtle bodies and meridians. By using the appropriate crystals one can allegedly retune an energy system or rebalance a body's energies, thus improving well-being.
Crystals and Gemstones have long been used for their ability to conduct and store information in energy form. Technology has incorporated the use of crystals in it's advancement and crystals as well as gemstones have been used for thousands of years for their spiriual awakening effects as well as emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
The reason why crystals and gemstones are wonderful and powerful healing tools are because of what science calls its piezoelectric effect. (You can see this effect in the modern quartz watches). Crystals and gemstones respond to the electricity that is coursing through our body, and if the energy is sluggish, the constant electrical vibrations of the stones will help to harmonize, balance, and stimulate these energies.
Working with crystals and gemstones is easy and effective. A basic understanding of just a few crystals and gemstones can be highly beneficial on your path of healing. We become naturally more aware of subtle energies that flow through us and as a result are able to restore balanace where needed. One is only required to be open to the energy of healing for it to work. Allow the energy of healing to flow through you by not attaching yourself to outcomes or goals. Healing energy flows when ego is not guiding it. Using the right stones in the right places is just the start. The rest becomes clear and more and more abundant the more we allow it to flow through us.

Can I use a pendulum to balance my energy centres?
Yes, you most certainly can! sing crystal pendulums fro healing is effective in removing energy imbalances from the body's finer energy systems.
Have a clear intent that the crystal pendulum will only move away from a neutral swing (back and forth), when it comes across an imbalance that can be corrected quickly and safely.
The crystal will move in a pattern that allows the imbalance to be cleared and will then return to the neutral swing.
1.Hold the pendulum lightly and firmly between the thumb and forefinger. Allow the wrist to relax and hold an arm and body in a comfortable position.
2.Start the pendulum swinging in a line, to and fro. This is a neutral swing.
3.Slowly move up the centre of the body, beginning beneath the feet. Wherever the pendulum moves away from neutral, simply stay at that point until the neutral swing returns.
4.When you get to a point above the head, go back to the feet and begin again, this time holding the pendulum near one side of the body. Repeat for the other side.
