When it comes to using healing crystals, everyone has different perspectives and approaches. This has led to quite a few misconceptions about the healing process and the tool it makes use of.
Here are a few common myths that are not true.
There Is A Specific Way of Connecting With Your Crystal
Not only do crystals work differently for different people, each type of crystal has its own unique mechanism. This is why comparing two different stones for having a particular kind of experience, or comparing your progress with someone else just won’t do.
There is no one way of connecting with your stone. It may take a person 2–3 weeks to be able to really connect with a gemstone, whereas another individual may feel the spiritual effects after a few days. Give your crystal some time before switching to another kind and don’t limit yourself to one particular method to be able to feel its healing properties take effect.
Even just admiring the gems and touching them connects you with them. The connection happens when we become aware of the spirit of the stone. It doesn’t have to take time. It’s more of a ‘felt sense’ than a procedure.
You Can Only Use a Set Amount of Crystals at a Time
Usually, there is no limit to how many crystals you may use during your healing procedure. You can stick to one particular stone, or incorporate two or three different kinds depending on what it is you’re focusing on.
That said, sometimes using multiple crystals can create a conflicting situation. Remember what they say about too many cooks spoiling the broth? Well, having too many grounding stones can have you feeling a little too grounded, and using more than a few crystals to stimulate your upper Chakras can cause your mind to become overloaded.
While there is no fixed number of how many crystals you should use at a time, make sure you’re not mixing together the ones with opposing qualities as they may end up cancelling out each other’s effects.
The Prettier the Stone, the More Powerful It Is
You may find certain types of stones to be prettier and more appealing than others, but trust us; their appearance has nothing to do with their healing properties. Whether it is round and smooth, rough and chiseled, or polished and shiny, the power of the crystal does not depend on any of these physical traits. The same applies to the size of the crystal as well: bigger is not always better!
If the only reason you’re hesitant about purchasing a stone you otherwise feel drawn toward is because you don’t find it beautiful looking, you’ve got another think coming! Don’t base your choice on the appearance of the crystal; get one that has the healing properties you would like to attract.
