I love crystals. I’ve loved them since discovering them as a little girl on a school trip to Chislehurst caves. And what’s not to love? They’re pretty and have amazing energy too. Working with your energy in a way that supports you in healing, amplifying, embodying or releasing energy. So, that you can feel better and, dare I say, more beautiful inside out.
Therefore, it was no surprise that I was drawn to crystals during a soulmate breakup many years ago. Perusing the many crystals in my local metaphysical shop I found myself instantly drawn to 3 crystals in particular. Trusting the pull that was coming from within I purchased them all and never looked back. Using each one with clear intention and in my daily routine. Resulting in heart healing, following through on more self care and finally being able to let go with more ease and grace than ever before.
That’s not to say that it was all plain sailing. I still had my regular Angelic Reiki sessions and my own shit to work through. However, blending crystals into my routine and practices, provided the healing and embodiment that I needed.
So, if you or someone you know is currently feeling the depths of emotions after a breakup, maybe its time to reach for Crystals alongside the red wine and ice cream.
Before working with your crystal you want to cleanse it of energy that doesn’t belong to you and that is not in alignment with you. This helps to reset the crystal’s energy. That way its more ready to attune to your energy.
You then want to sit with your crystal. This is a part that most people miss out because they want to dive straight into setting intentions. That’s all good. However, by holding the crystal in your hand, sitting with its energy and close your eyes. As you sit with your crystal notice how you feel and think about your intention. Allowing thoughts, words and images to come to you. You can do this at anytime. Although it’s good to do so before bed or in the morning as soon you wake up. This is because you can better access the intuitive mind and receive guidance from within.
