Crystals: Color and Use

The best way to work with crystals magickally, is to simply carry them in your pocket or touch them. You can also wear them as jewelry as a single crystal or combined with other complimentary crystals on places such as: over your heart or at your wrists, etc, to disburse the energies throughout the body. 


Cleansing Crystals

Many people often handle the crystals before they are bought by you, so aligning and cleansing them is recommended for purest energy. 

Crystal Alignment Meditation

  1. Stand before your crystals and close your eyes and focus on the moment
  2. Take three slow breaths: inhale to the count of four, hold for count of four, and exhale for count of four, and then hold for another four counts
  3. State firmly in your mind “My spirit vibrates in harmony with (insert crystal type here)” (Robbins & Bedell, 2017). 
  4. Continue to mentally recite the chant until you feel an energetic shift in yourself 
  5. Open your eyes and start to feel the crystals before you
  6. Hold them, touch them
  7. The crystal that is right for you will feel like its humming in your hand–the sensation of your energy and the crystal energy aligning 

Boosting Crystal Power with a Simple Cleansing Ritual

  • Materials:
    • Your crystals
    • Bowl of soapy water
    • Sea salt (in small bowl)
    • Bowl of cold water
  • Ritual:
    • Take all the crystals and put them in the bowl of soapy water. Use your hands to rub them clean
    • Chant as you wash clean: “Water, cleanse and clean. Remove the negative unseen” (Robbins & Bedell, 2017).
    • When the crystals feel lighter, individually place them in the bowl of salt. The salt will ground them in your energy and their energy, and remove any remaining energy
    • Next, dip them in the bowl of cold water to rinse off the salt, but keep the energetic process. As you remove them from the cold water, say “By the water, no more negativity. By the water, blessed be” (Robbins & Bedell, 2017)
    • Your crystals are now blessed and cleansed and ready for use

  • Let sit for 2-8 hours
  • Once done, strain the water into a clean glass and store

cleansing crystals

full moon: on the night of a full moon, leave your crystals outside to soak up the moonlight, the crystals will still receive the energy even if it’s cloudy or raining! (but make sure the crystals can safely be in contact with water!!)

sunlight: leave your crystals out to bathe in the sun for a few hours (Amegreen, Amethyst, Ametrine,  Aquamarine,  Celestite, Citrine, Fluorite,  Kunzite, Opal,Rose Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Spirit Quartz, Super Seven, Topaz, and Turquoise should not be left out in the sun!!)

sage/incense: waft the smoke over the crystals, or hold the crystals in the smoke, let the smoke reach every side of the crystal

water: let your crystals soak in a nice cool water bath, or place them under running water, visualise the water cleaning out any negative energy (Calcite, Desert Rose, Halite, Hematite, Lodestone, Malachite, Satin Spar, and Selenite should not be placed in water!!)

earth: bury your crystals in the soil for a few hours and the earth will soak up negative energies (again, be cautious about rain!)

sound: place your crystals in front of speakers and play your favourite music!! the vibrations from sound waves will pass through the crystals and reset their vibrations to their original state

flower petals: bury your crystals in a bowl of flower petals, choose a flower that has extra healing properties to help your crystals

visualisation: hold your crystal in your hand and envision a white light surrounding it, then see a white beam pass through the crystal, taking the negative energy away

I keep the shells in the metal container with the pink gem on top. I keep everything in the black pouch.

Caeleste Ursi: “The Bears of The Stars & Void”

The Caeleste Ursi (Celestial Bears) are spirits who relate to the stars, void, galaxies, and on occasion, planets. 

Appearance:

They have colors that vary from blues or purples to black, with eyes that are hollow and glow various colors. The most common eye colors are aqua, soft gold, yellow, pink or white. In the very rare case of albinos, which tends to happen once every few millennia, they are a translucent glowing white with black void eyes. Albino or not, all of them have fur that  is laced with bits of star-glow, giving them all the appearance of sparkling.

Energy:

The energy given off by these spirits reminds me of the vastness of space, the swirling patterns of galaxies and stars, the buzz you hear when there is no other noise, and the cold determination of a protector. However it also has subtle undertones of the warm fire in a library, the smell of ink on parchment paper, and the whispers of secrets transferring from one person to another.

Abilities:

Caeleste Ursi are skilled at anything involving stars, planets, astrology, and astronomy. They have very keen memories and remember most things in vast detail. They also seem to be very good with protection, comforting, and minor healing.

Associations:

Colors- Purple, Blue, Indigo, White, Black, Magenta

Plants- Pansies (esp purple ones)  Mint, Lemongrass, Coriander

Stones- Ametrine, Blue Lace Agate, Fluorite, Hematite, Rose Quartz, Sodalite, Selenite, Blue Goldstone

Smells- Cedar, Eucalyptus, Jasmine, Lavender, Lotus

SACRED GEMS

CRYSTAL HEALING FOR INSOMNIA

 If Insomnia plagues you, try some crystal healing!  Specific Gemstones to alleviate insomnia are Amethyst, Hematite, and Rose Quartz.

*Amethyst:  Amethyst has long been used to open the spiritual and psychic centers, making it one of the power stones. It is also used as a meditation aid when worn as a necklace. It is used as a dream stone and to help insomnia. Put an Amethyst under your pillow to bring about pleasant dreams, or rub it across your forehead to offer relief from a headache.

*Hematite:  Hematite restores the body in balance and assists in Insomnia.  Considered the symbol of life energy, Hematite allows for more confidence, will power and boldness. It helps us adjust to being physical. A protective stone and helps bolster low self-esteem, Hematite is known to deflect negativity. It restores equilibrium, stability and is also used for astral protection.

*Rose Quartz:  Rose Quartz is helpful in aiding in Insomnia.  Rose Quartz can be used to facilitate emotional healing, ease loss, calm stress, relieve hurt, dissolve fear, help strengthen low confidence, resolves resentment and quells anger. Rose quartz aligns mental, emotional, and astral bodies.  It is of particular value in helping us to forgive ourselves, hastening self-acceptance. 

Witching on a budget: Six must have crystals.

When practising witchcraft you don’t need a whole lot of fancy tools, herbs, jars, books or even crystals. If you’re on a budget it can be hard to collect everything that you think it requires, when I first started I had an exercise book a pen and the library, I collected flowers, leaves and twigs from the garden along with herbs from my parents kitchen. I was a girl who knew what path I wanted to follow. I now live with my husband, and we’re witches who have a budget.

I have a huge soft spot for crystals, I love them, and my husband does too. Anywho I have put together a list of crystals that I believe can enhance the craft, for those witches who are on a budget but still want to get themselves a few crystals. Please remember this is my own view, feel free to add to the list.

Clear quartz: I think clear quartz will pop up on any list, as it is the most versatile crystal you can get. Clear quartz can take on almost any meaning/energy it’s charged with and boosts the energy of other tools/herbs it’s pared with. This quartz can also be used to direct energy, especially pointed pillars of quartz. And it’s very cleansing. It might not be the prettiest of crystals but if you’re only going to have one, this should be it. 

Tigers eye: I read once that the Roman soldiers carried this crystal with them into battle to help bring them victory. I am unsure how true that is but I find it interesting. Tigers eye promotes strength, courage, self-confidence, and good fortune. I have also noticed that tigers eye helps with social anxiety, depression and PTSD.

Citrine: This another fantastic crystal! Citrine can be used to Cleanse; People, situations, areas, objects and even other crystals. This crystal can help defuse disturbing energy, help with nightmares/sleepless nights, and even help to enhance physic ability/dreams along with aiding in divination.

Amethyst: This crystal aids physic ability and dreams, along with helping divination (an amethyst pendulum is a good idea for divination and physic ability).  Amethyst can help with and deepen/focus meditation, along with aiding in remembrance and peaceful energy/behaviour.  

 Hematite: Hematite is amazing for grounding and healing. Carrying or wearing a piece can really help centre and ground your emotions.

Rose quartz: If you’re doing a ritual that involves emotion rose quartz is the perfect crystal to help, especially if it involves love/romance/friendship. Promotes healing and soothing energy and attracts love/romance/friendship.
