How to Know When to Work with Crystals

When should you work with crystals? And how?

If you're wondering WHEN or HOW to work with crystals...and what that even means, anyway...then you're in the right place.

Let me clear something up: working with crystals doesn’t have to be hard or complicated.

Sound too…easy? Read on, for HOW + WHY.

I’ve been working with crystals for over 20 years…and these simple “practices” (if you can even call them that) have served me time and time again.

Here are three times to work with your crystals

So: how do you know you should "work with" your crystals? 

  1. You have an intense desire to pick one up...and then you don't want to put it down.

  2. You keep thinking about a specific crystal.

  3. You need some kind of specific support: like for clearer communication.

What does that even mean - "work with crystals"?

Working with a crystal doesn't have to be hard. In the first case, start by just holding it when you can. Tuck it into your pocket. Keep it near you while you work.

My recent "need" crystal has been an ammonite palm stone. I've been holding it in the evenings, while watching tv.

If it comes in jewelry form, wear it.

I couldn't stop thinking about some meteorites I I bought one in a pendant and wore it.

Need to hash out a proposal or presentation, but things just aren't flowing? Feeling scattered, but need to focus? Choose a crystal that fits your needs.

I recently used celestite for clearer communication and always have a big black tourmaline near me, if I'm feeling overly stressed or distracted.

Real talk: It doesn't have to be difficult

This isn't about meditating with a crystal, setting an intention, or even being intentionAL. Those are all excellent, powerful things to do.

But we can also just work with crystals casually, no rules, whenever we want.

It doesn't need to be more complex than that, if you don't want it to.
