How to use crystals in modern day life
The modern world would be a better, more peaceful place if more people allowed their feminine energy to flow. Feminine energy is the energy of being, of self-love, compassion, intuition, and flow. Imagine the radical revolution if more people moved from this space. Use crystals to tap into this feminine energy that resides within you. Shift your energy, and the collective energy of the world will begin to shift, too.
How to Use Your Crystals
There are numerous ways to use your crystals, and I recommend experimenting with all of them to see what feels most powerful to you. Go with your intuition when choosing them and what feels and looks good with you. Make it a treasure hunt and research the meanings of each. Some great ways are:
- Meditate with them
- Wear them in jewelry to carry their energy throughout the day
- Create a crystal grid to amplify the energy
- Charge them in water under the full moon and drink the water
- Incorporate into your yoga practice and place them on the top or corners of your mat
- Put them in your bath
- Sleep with them. Add under your pillow with some lavender essential oil for a good nights rest
- Place them around your home in different spaces. Indoors and outdoors. There can never be enough
- Teach your children, family and loved ones the meaning of crystals. It’s science!
