Everything in the Universe is energy. And so are Crystals.
Crystals are conscious beings, that have been used for centuries for their healing powers.
In Ayurveda, crystaltherapy and medical preparations made of natural gemstones are an important part of ayurvedic treatments.
I have always been attracted to crystals since I was little girl. They have been my early companions for calming my anxiety, for raising my vibration, as beautiful home decor, or for curing occasional ailments.
They have been my magical friends since forever. I love their shades, their beauty, the wellbeing they provide me with. 10 years ago I started making my own crystal jewelry and started to gift it or sell it. I find them so much more meaningful than any random fantasy jewelry that you can buy out there. And they hold such powerful energy and wisdom. Crystals are just a Girl's best friend !
This month, let's dive more into CRYSTAL MAGIC !

Types of Crystals
So you are ready to add some crystals to your home and rituals. There are four types of crystals to choose from: raw or rough crystals, clusters and geodes, slices, and points or wands.
Raw or rough crystals are the crystals that come straight from the earth. They are rough and rocky and crystals such as rose quartz or amethyst are often found in this form. When left in their natural state, some people believe you can connect with them more deeply. They give off a gentle and diffused energy that can have a positive effect on a space or even an emotional state.
Clusters and geodes are visually stunning stones. They usually feature a hollow formation that is lled with crystals. These types of crystals have powerful frequencies and can send out a wonderful calming and purifying energy in a space. This is a popular choice for both its power and beauty.
Slices are when a gemstone is cut into a thin piece that is then polished. With this type of crystal you can really enjoy the inner beauty of the crystal. These types of crystals are perfect for decoration and adding a peaceful energy to the space.
Wands or points are often used as a healing tool. They are excellent energy transmitters. Quartz is one of the crystals often found as a wand or point and is known for its purifying and cleansing qualities.
Gemstones come also in the form of a piece of jewelry. This is a beautiful way to wear crystals directly on your skin and to directly take in their healing properties.
There is no right of wrong choice when choosing which type of crystal to add to your collection. More than anything, the most important thing is your connection to the stone. If possible hold the crystal in your hand and close your eyes to tap into intuitive feelings about the stone. If you are choosing the crystal online you can always close your eyes and envision the stone in your mind’s eye and note what feelings and sensations come to you. As long as you always trust your intuition, the right crystal will find you.
How to make a Gemstone Elixir
To make a crystal elixir, place the gemstone of choice in a glass jar of water and leave it outside for at least twenty four hours to soak up the sun and moon’s healing life force (such as Moonstone). If you do not have twenty four hours to soak the crystal it is preferable to leave the elixir out in the sun for as long as you can. Unless the moon is full, the sun tends to charge water faster.
The idea is that when we drink the elixir it will cause physical shifts in the body as it heals our own molecular structure as it aligns it more closely with the energy of the crystal. When making a gemstone elixir always be sure to use puried or distilled water. It is also important to only use a glass jar instead of a plastic one, because chemicals from plastic can leach out into your elixir.
Some other tips are to research the crystal you plan on using your elixir beforehand and making sure it is an insoluble stone. Quartz are commonly used in elixirs and many people describe feeling an almost immediate charge after drinking a quartz elixir. If you choose a crystal that is soluble, you can still make an elixir with it, by placing the crystal outside of the jar, right against the glass of the jar, so that the water gets infused with the crystal's vibrations.
Also, make sure your crystal can handle direct sunlight. Some crystals such as amethyst for example, tend to get damaged in the sunlight.
A Crystal Elixir can be a really healing and restorative ritual to add to your life. Feel free to experiment and I wish you luck on your own healing crystal journey.
