A Beginner’s Guide to Crystal Healing

Beginners Guide to healing Crystals

Find out why crystals are used in healing, and how you can choose, cleanse, and store your own healing crystals.

How does crystal healing work?

When most people hear about crystal healing, the first thing they ask is: “How does it work?” Many theories seek to answer this, including the colour resonances between crystals and the chakras, and the effect their energy or vibration has on our largely water-filled bodies.

The important thing to note is that this is a complementary, holistic approach, to be used alongside professional medical support. It is believed that crystal healing is an energy-based system, meaning crystals may help to unblock, rebalance, and direct our energies to where they are most needed.

Even though they look rather calm and unassuming on the outside, crystals are believed to hold a mass of energy on the inside, with many noting how the tiny particles vibrate around an atomic core. If you want to explore this energy yourself, read on for our guide to selecting and cleansing healing crystals.

Choosing your crystals

There are several different ways you can pick your crystal, but my favorite way is by intuition. Close your eyes and clear your mind. When you open them, see which crystal jumps out at you the most.

Beginner’s crystals

There are a wealth of different crystals available, however, the following are great to start with if you’re new to crystal healing.


This beautiful purple stone resonates with the third eye chakra, to assist with consciousness and intuition. This can instil feelings of peace, to reduce stress and aid sleep.

Rose quartz

Pale pink in color, rose quartz resonates with the heart chakra, symbolizing love and opening your heart. Therefore, it is believed to help bring peace and tranquility.

Smokey quartz

Smokey quartz is a grounding stone to use at the end of a healing session. It is believed that it absorbs negativity, and may be beneficial for those experiencing anxiety and depression.

Clear quartz

Known as a master healing stone, clear quartz connects with the higher chakras, and so is often used to improve your clarity, supporting you on a mental, physical, and emotional level.

Cleansing your crystals

The reason crystals are used so often in healing is because of a belief that they can absorb and project energy. So, before you start using your crystals, it’s important to cleanse them of any previous energy.

There are several ways you can do this, ranging from simple visualization, soaking them in a salt bath, or burying them in earth overnight.

I like to cleanse my crystals by holding them under running water for a few minutes – visualizing the water as pure white light before leaving them on the windowsill to charge in either sunlight or moonlight.

Setting your intention with crystals

This is where you get to harness the powers of your new crystals. To set your intention, hold the crystal in your dominant hand. Clear your mind of any unwanted thoughts. When deciding on an intention, think of the whole journey.

For example, instead of setting “I want to be calmer,” set one along the lines of “I wish to let go of stress and welcome more joy into my life.”

Empty your mind, and start focusing on the crystal in your hand and the intention you wish to set. Repeat your intention out loud until you feel connected.

Storing your crystals

To benefit most from the crystal’s energy, it’s best to keep it near you. This could be in your coat pocket, at work, under your pillow, or on your bedside table. This way it will serve as a constant reminder of your positive intention. 

If you wish to store them to keep them safe, a soft cloth bag is ideal for storing tumbled stones. But, if you have more delicate crystals, you may want to wrap them individually in cloth, or even put them on a shelf.

Waring Healing Crystals as Jewelry

In addition to placing healing crystals on specific areas of the body or carrying them in a pocket or pouch, wearing crystals as jewelry is another popular way to benefit from their healing properties

Crystal jewelry not only looks beautiful but also allows for a constant flow of energy throughout the day. Whether you’re looking for protection, balance, or a boost in positivity, there’s a crystal out there for everyone.

So why not try incorporating crystal jewelry into your daily routine and see how it can enhance your well-being? Check out some of our unique pieces and find the perfect piece for you. Your body and mind will thank you for it!

Remember that crystals on display, and those worn as jewelry, will pick up lots of energies, and should be cleansed often.
