How to Use Crystals for Beginners

By: Chelsea Vurciaga

If you are reading this you are probably wondering…is it really possible for me to use crystals and stones?

Also, you might be thinking…won’t it take a long time to learn how to use them? What if I’m a complete beginner?

Based on my extensive experience, crystals and stones are a powerful tool and anyone can learn how to use them…especially beginners!

In fact, I’ve found that beginners who learn the right techniques from the start are a lot more successful than those who have been practicing wrong techniques for years.

It all hinges on learning the correct way to use crystals and respecting the energetic rules, which have been passed down throughout time…

Ancient Crystal Success Teachings

Several ancient writings and cultures as far back as 4000 BC mention the powers of crystal healing.

It’s important to distinguish between crystal healing and religion. Although there are positive references to crystals in the bible, crystal healing is not a religion and does not have a religious affiliation. Crystals and stones are simply natural energetic tools.

For instance, in Plato’s account of Atlantis, the Atlanteans used crystals to amplify thoughts and the Ancient Sumerians used crystals in healing formulas.

In fact, you’ll find prominent accounts of crystals healing in scriptures from Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and Native America.

Unfortunately, knowledge of this ancient art has been limited to fewer people as time has passed…

But, thankfully it is not lost!

I’ve spent nearly my entire life studying with prominent healers to learn how to successfully use crystals and stones.

What I’ve learned is that it is of upmost importance to understand, respect and follow the ancient energetic teachings.

ESPECIALLY if you are using crystals and stones for luck, love, success and money!

The Truth is Approximately 99 Percent of Crystal Collectors Don’t Actually Use Them…

If you look at any online crystal forum, most comments and posts revolve around building a large crystal and stone collection.

However, having beautiful crystals around you is like gathering vibrant paints and never painting a picture with them!

What good does that do?

Or like buying your dream car and never driving it…

You get the picture.

Thus, it is VITAL that you cleanse, align and interact with your crystals in order to bring their energetic quality to your goals.

Also, if your crystals are simply in your environment, these crystals and stones may be absorbing the energy of other people or the energy of the actual environment.

Not at all what you want! Instead, you want your crystal energy pure, powerful and focused… just as if you plucked the crystal from nature yourself!

Too Many Crystals Means Too Much Energy

Another thing to keep in mind is that using TOO MANY crystals and stones at once might overwhelm your energy and goals.

Remember, that you want to be as focused as possible on the goal that you want to achieve, SO YOU WANT YOUR CRYSTAL ENERGY TO BE AS FOCUSED AS POSSIBLE.

Sometimes, people start getting so many crystals and stones that they are not building the energy that they ultimately want to achieve BECAUSE ITS TOO MUCH SCATTERED ENERGY.

Therefore, it is important to use specific crystals for your specific goals.

The Problem with Crystal Grids

Often Crystal Grids are simply a gigantic mess of crystal energy.

Yes, they make for beautiful photos, but they are not actually bringing any focused energy your way.

The truth is that making a powerful crystal grid is not suitable for beginner or even intermediate crystal users.

Think about it…first you have to learn to walk before you can run.

First, you need to learn how to attract and align crystal energy before you can build an intricate and complicated crystal grid!

Thus, relying on crystal grids is another reason many people using crystals never get any real results.

Especially if you are building a grid someone ELSE recommends and NOT one from your heart.

OR…you are building a grid with crystals that aren’t aligned to you or your purpose! How would that benefit YOU?

It all starts with finding the right crystals and stones and attuning them to your energy.

How to Find the Crystals and Stones for YOU

Unfortunately, most people read long descriptions of crystals and stones to select them.

Doing this leads to acquiring a bunch of crystals and stones that aren’t aligned to you AT ALL.

It is similar to choosing a spouse by reading a description of him/her…we all know those “looks good on paper” types who aren’t actually a match.

Just like you find that special spark with someone, you must share a spark of energy and attraction with the crystals and stones that you use!

The energy of attraction is extremely important to your success with your crystals and stones.

ALSO, you need to make sure that your crystals and stones are cleansed and aligned with YOUR UNIQUE ENERGY!

Honor and Enhance Your Purpose In Life

You want your crystal goals to honor the best path forward in your life and what is good and honorable.

The right way is to use your intention, energy flow, actions and intuition to attract the right opportunities.

The wrong way is to try and manipulate the universe into instantly giving you what you want, regardless if it is good for you or not.

Therefore, it is important when using crystals you ARE NOT simply making a wish.

Often what we wish for may seem good for us, but it ISN’T actually what is for our greater good. Thus, it is important to focus crystal energy on something that will have a lasting positive impact in your life!

When we use crystals and stones for our goals AND act with integrity, it amplifies the positive energy flow!

Especially, when we work on removing the blocks that hold us back!

Removing Energetic Blocks When Using Crystals and Stones

Do you feel like something is holding you back from your goals?

Almost like an invisible force is working against you in a way that feels like you are hitting an invisible wall?

Unfortunately, energetic blocks are fairly common.

Often these blocks manifest from trauma, abuse or limiting beliefs and rest in our Chakras, or spiritual centers.

The great news is that you can use crystals and stones to help you remove energetic blocks.

This is just another great way to use your crystals and stones!

Best Crystals and Stones to Attract Success

Have you ever used crystals to help attract success into your life? The good news is that even if you are hesitant to give them a try, most crystals cost just a few dollars each and represent an inexpensive way to help improve your life.

How do crystals and stones work?
Throughout time, many cultures including Egyptians, Chinese and Native Americans have utilized various crystals and stones to focus energy, bring good luck, attract love and invoke success. It is thought that crystals and stones emit energy fields that can encourage positive physical and mental health. One way to begin to understand the healing benefits of crystals is to look at their piezoelectric effect. Simply put, crystals help to harness and emit energy which may explain their power. This is most witnessed in the quartz watch movement that uses crystal interaction in order to keep time. Perhaps it is an energy like this that helps influence OUR energy fields and draw good things to us. For those of us who have had positive experiences with crystals, a feeling of positive attraction seems to be the best description of how they work. Depending on what feels right, you can wear crystals, place them over an important picture or document, or even put them under your pillow at night.

Picking the right crystal and stone for you
Your crystal or stone must choose you as much as you are choose it. Often, if a crystal or stone doesn’t choose you, you will quickly lose or misplace it and never see it again. On the other hand, if a crystal or stone likes you, you will find it again and again in random places you left it and it will not leave you. To choose the right stones and crystals for you, go to the one that you are most attracted to, close your eyes and hold it in your hands by your heart. If you feel pulled forward by it than it is a good choice for you.

Stones and crystals for success
These are some of the standout stones that are known to attract money and success. However, if you are drawn to another stone and feel that it will be lucky for you, please go with your instinct!

This sparkling light yellow stone is known as the “merchants stone” because it is thought to help increase sales. In fact, some say to put a citrine in the cash drawer to bring in more business. It also helps to promote confidence, self-assurance and prosperity and open the mind. People also use citrine as a protection stone and to dispel negative energy. This is a great stone for entrepreneurs!

Aventurine is known as the stone for luck and chance. Some say that this is a good stone to have handy if you play the lottery. It is also said to promote independence, originality, creative visualization and emotional tranquility. People also use it to promote a positive attitude and confidence. Keep it by you as you prep for an important meeting or business presentation!

Tibetan “Black” Quartz
This crystal, which carries the “OM” vibration, is one of the most powerful crystals for removing blockages and negative energies. Use it to bring clarity and focus to your current job situation and remove hinderances. This is also a great crystal to help you realize your path in life and best way toward success. It helps balance all of your chakras, clear negative thought patterns and promote positive actions. It also helps to protect you from from jealous or competitive coworkers and protect you from an overzealous or combative boss.

IMPORTANT – Before using your stones and crystals, make sure to “clear” them by bathing them in sea salt overnight. This is thought to remove all previous energy so that they are free for your use. Simply put them in sea salt so that it covers them completely and leave while you sleep. This is an important step that is a recommended as an absolute must. People use crystals and stones in different ways including carrying them in a left pocket, using them in meditation or simply placing them in their surroundings.
