Are you looking forward to a clean, brand-new slate in 2022? Of course you are! Now is the time to build your vision board, decide on your New Year’s resolutions, and manifest your future. But if you want to amp things up a bit and tap into a deeper side of manifestation, you might want to consider setting your intentions with healing crystals. These gems possess natural energy to manifest and build on life-changing intentions. We all need positive energy going into 2022, and we’ve put together a guide to help get you closer to enhancing your goal-setting, personal resilience, and energy sustainment! And don’t worry, it’s perfect for beginners too.
Certain crystals boost our self-care efforts, and the right crystals depend on your resolutions and intentions.
These crystals help us stay on the pathways we create for ourselves, and the different uses of the gems help our continual progress.
Cleansing our crystals restores them to their natural state, and you want to have them as pure as possible. Water will rid any negative energy stored inside of the stone. Your stone should be completely submerged under water to cleanse it, followed by patting it dry. A deeper cleanse of the gem can be done by adding sage or lavender to the water.
The best use of your gems comes from first clarifying the intentions of the gem you’re using. Once you’ve figured that out, you can activate the crystal. There are a few ways to do such; through harmonizing, directed thoughts, loud and proud. Harmonizing activation comes from rolling the cleansed crystal between your palms. Close your eyes and imagine both your and your crystal’s energies are merging together. Think about the intention of your crystal and keep it positive. Directed Thoughts activation comes from sitting in front of your crystal.
Close your eyes and imagine that your crystal is filling with light. The impression should be that your crystal is becoming so bright that you wouldn’t be able to look at it. Your consciousness and the stone’s energy should fuse together, sealing a pure and glowing intention. Loud and Proud activation comes from holding the crystal in your left hand and sitting in natural light. Repeat your intention aloud three times, feeling the crystal grow warmer and warmer as it absorbs your positive energy.
When your gems have been activated, keep them close to you. Wear it as a necklace, a bracelet, keep it as a pocket friend, or in a bag—anywhere close to your works. Keeping your stone is a crucial part of bonding the energy between you two. Keeping the crystals near you help the refocus of your self-determination and milestones.
The bottom line: We all need positive vibes and good energy going into 2022. Healing crystals just may be the way to accomplish that.
