As I'm writing this blog, I realize that I'm going to have to make a 'Life's Cheat Code Series’ because this blog is just one of many that would fit into that series and I of course want to share them all with you, so stay tuned. As of now, let's start with #1
Crystals are like mother earth's gifts to us. I consider them to be one of the cheat codes in the video game called life. I always make the analogy that life is like a big fancy video game. You have you're character that you're playing as, but your HIGHER SELF is actually controlling this character through the screen. Is this getting too matrixy already?
As you/ego plays this role in this video game called life, you/higher self (the one behind the screen) is trying to direct you/ego in the best direction. And in this video game we have ‘cheat codes’ available to us. They are rocks, also knows as crystals. To me..they are one of the 'cheat codes’ of life because they can assist us with a lot of different things in everyday life, different types of crystals help us with specific areas more than others.
These beautiful, magical, crystals are shaped and formed under pressure from our beautiful earth, and they all contain different energies within them. There’s a tonof variety when it comes to color, shape, size etc, and all of them work to better your life in a specific way. Crystals can help with meditation, manifestation, healing, love, and acquiring money, just to name a few. Whatever you're looking to improve or create in your life mother earth has provided a helpful tool, you just have to go out and find it! I feel the same way about herbs and other things, but I’ll save that for another blog. These crystals are so helpful whether you fully believe in their power or not. It's like giving a green juice to a kid, they might not know it's healthy or what it's going to do for them, but that doesn't mean it's not helping. The same goes with crystals. They work their magic whether you choose to believe in them or not.
They pick you as much as you pick them
Picking a crystal is like picking a partner or a pet. It has to be a mutually agreed upon relationship so you use each other’s energy to work together. If you take a couple of deep breaths when you pick up a crystal, you might be able to get a feeling of 'yes or no' and you'll know when you find the right one. Nothing happens solely by coincidence and what you choose will be right. For that reason, I don't like to order them online because I like tophysically FEEL, if we're a good match before I make a decision. You can’t really know what you're getting when you buy them online, unless you buy from a page you trust. If you don't have a store near you, or you're overseas or heck, maybe you just can't find what you're looking for, I'd recommend my usual 'go to' : SAGE GODDESS.
When you purchase your crystals, it's important that you cleanse them from any negative energy and all previously exposed energy that you don't want attached to them. You want to 'program' them to work with YOUR energy. There are different ways of doing this, but my favorite way is definitely cleansing them with the smoke of white sage. You simply hold your crystals in the smoke and let it cleanse away all negative energy. A good way to then recharge them is to place them in direct sunlight for a full day and let them soak up the healing energy of the sun. You can also cleanse them using your intention & a visualization technique. Sitting with them, meditating and imagining white light cleansing your crystals. This takes a little more time but is also a good method.
There are other ways to cleanse them but these are my two favorite and usual go-to's. Placing them outside on the night of the full moon to absorb the powerful energy of the moon light is the best way to charge & cleanse them. Unfortunately I can't always do that as we travel so much, but the full moon is actually tonight so I'll be able to do it!
I absolutely LOVE jewelry made from crystals as they are that much easier to carry around with me but in case you don't have that option, I often place the small ones in my bra or pockets. Not only do my necklaces get charged in the sun as I'm wearing them, they look pretty too. Win-win! For the meaning and uses of the many different crystals, I usually go to this site for information. You could be wanting assistance in one of the areas I mentioned earlier and in that case, I would do a google search and see which crystals helps with whatever you are looking for.
I hope that you have fun with picking your crystals & as a little experiment, you could carry your newly purchased crystals with you for a month and see what has changed for you and THEN look up if that matches the energy of your new crystal ;)
Have fun with it!
