Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Naomi Campbell is raving about these powerful rocks. If you’re overwhelmed by all the information on healing crystals, you’re not alone. Let’s start with the everything you need to know about the mother of all crystals, the clear quartz.
What is a Clear Quartz?
Like all crystals, clear quartz is a naturally occurring rock formation that radiates energy. It can be identified by its clear, opaque or slightly cloudy appearance.
Also known as the “Master Healer”, the clear quartz is praised for it’s ability to clear the mind of negativity, enhance spiritual awareness, and ease physical pain. Additionally, the clear quartz has power to amplify the healing power of other stones —- well get into that a little later.
How Can I Activate My Clear Quartz?
When using a crystal for the first time, it is important that you “program” it to receive, store and emit energy. This process isn’t complicated, all you’re doing is transporting your unique energy to the stone.
Before you do this, you must reset your crystal, or cleanse it of its built up energy. Crystals are exposed to many types of energy from the time they are sourced to when a purchase is made. That is why it’s important to clear them of any energies before using it.
There are many ways you can choose to cleanse your crystal. One way is by smudging it with sage, all you have to do is burn the sage and pass the crystal through the smoke. Another way to reset your crystal is by letting it sit until running water, water is said to neutralize any negative energy.
How Can I Use Clear Quartz for Healing?
The clear quartz corresponds to your crown chakra. Located at the top of your head, this energy portal is responsible for how you think and respond to the world. Symptoms of a blockage in your crown chakra include:
- Isolation and loneliness
- Feeling disconnected spiritually
- Lack of direction
- Nerve pain
- Recurring migraines and headaches
- Thyroid and pineal gland disorders
Using clear quartz for healing can take many forms. Here are a few techniques to get you started on your healing journey.
One of the most common ways to use crystals for healing is meditation. Begin by holding your clear quartz in one hand and closing your eyes. Focus on your breath and visualize a white glowing light radiating at the top of your head. Feel the energy of the stone radiating throughout your body. It’s okay if you don’t feel anything right away, meditation takes practice and gets easier each time you do it.
Carry it With You
Another simple way to feel the healing powers of crystal quartz is to carry it with you. You can keep it in your pocket or in your purse or wear it in the form of jewelry. This way you’ll always be surrounded by it’s energy.
Draw Up a Crystal Bath
There’s no better way than balancing your energies than with a relaxing bath infused with crystals. The crystals’ energy travels easier and with less resistance when placed in water. Treat yo’ self with an at-home spa bath with scented candles, Epsom salt, and clear quartz crystals.
Use Clear Quartz with Other Crystals
Like mentioned earlier, clear quartz helps activate their vibrational frequency of other crystals. A simple way you can do this is with a crystal grid. The clear quartz is placed in the middle of the grid, and it is surrounded by crystals that align with your intention. For example, if your intention is to heal heartbreak and attract love, your grid would have love attracting crystals like rose quartz and green aventurine.
