Crystals and stones have been used for centuries in various cultures around the world for their healing and energy-balancing properties. While there's no one-size-fits-all approach to using crystals and stones for healing, here are some general guidelines to help you get started on your journey to release energy and promote healing:
Selecting Your Crystals:
Begin by selecting crystals or stones that resonate with your specific needs and intentions. Research the properties and energies associated with different crystals to find the ones that align with your goals. Some popular healing crystals include amethyst, rose quartz, citrine, clear quartz, and black tourmaline, but there are many others to explore.

Cleansing Your Crystals:
Crystals can absorb energy from their surroundings, so it's essential to cleanse them before use. You can do this by placing them under running water, leaving them in the sunlight or moonlight, smudging them with sage or palo santo, or burying them in the earth for a short period. Choose a method that resonates with you and the crystal's energy.
Setting Your Intention:
Before using a crystal or stone, it's important to set a clear intention. This can be a simple statement of what you want to achieve or release. Hold the crystal in your hands, close your eyes, and focus on your intention. Visualize the desired outcome and infuse the crystal with your energy.
To help you connect with these healing stones, we have hand shaped the front of the stone as smooth dome - making it tactile to the touch. The reverse of each charm has an open setting so the stones energy can connect with your skin when worn.

Meditation and Visualization:
Crystals can be powerful tools for meditation and visualization. Hold the crystal in your hand or place it on your body (e.g., on your heart chakra or third eye) as you meditate. Allow the crystal's energy to guide your thoughts and feelings, promoting relaxation, clarity, and emotional release.
Crystals are often associated with the body's energy centers or chakras. Select crystals that correspond to specific chakras to help balance and align your energy. For example, use amethyst for the crown chakra, rose quartz for the heart chakra, and citrine for the solar plexus chakra.
Carry or Wear Crystals:
Incorporate crystals into your daily life by , wearing them as jewelry, or placing them in your environment. This allows you to benefit from their energy throughout the day. Choose crystals that resonate with your goals or emotional needs.
Create crystal grids to amplify the energy and intention of your crystals. Arrange them in a geometric pattern, focusing on your desired outcome. Crystal grids can be used for various purposes, such as protection, manifestation, or healing.
Elixir and Bath:
Some crystals are safe to use in elixirs or baths. Make sure to research which crystals are suitable for water use. You can place a cleansed crystal in a glass of water and let it infuse overnight for a crystal elixir, or add crystals to your bath for a soothing and energizing experience.
Keep a crystal journal to record your experiences, thoughts, and feelings while working with crystals. Document any shifts in energy, emotions, or insights that occur during your crystal healing practice. Lily Charmed have also designed a collection of Manifest Jewellery that aligns with this practice.
Trust Your Intuition:
Ultimately, trust your intuition and follow your instincts when working with crystals. Your connection with these natural wonders is a personal and unique experience. Experiment with different techniques and crystals to discover what works best for you.
Remember that using crystals and stones for healing is a complementary practice and should not replace professional medical advice or treatment when needed. Crystals can be powerful tools for self-awareness, emotional healing, and energy balancing when used with intention and respect for their inherent properties.
