Using crystals for the first time
Here are a few quick but important things to know as a crystal beginner.
How to choose the right crystal
The best way to know which crystal is right for you is by using your intuition. Try to sense the energy of the crystal. Do you like how it looks? Feels in your hand? Reflects the light? Are you connecting with it in any way? Always follow your instincts.
Although it’s completely up to you which crystal you chose for a particular purpose, certain crystals are best for certain uses. So as far as the type of crystal you decide to acquire, you may want to consider what you intend to use your crystal for. And make your selection that way.
Cleanse your crystals
When you first get ahold of a brand new crystal, you’ll probably want to display or use it right away- but wait. You should take the time to cleanse your crystal first. This needn’t take more than a few seconds if you are in a hurry. And you don’t need any special tools unless you want to be a little extra about it. (And nothing wrong with that!)
Program your crystal
To program your crystal, simply state out loud or silently what the crystal will be used for. An example of a programming statement would be:
I declare this crystal to increase my patience today at work.
Alright, let’s jump right into all the wonderful ways to use crystals in your daily life!
How to use Crystals- 11 Ways
1. Hold crystals during meditation
Crystals can enhance the benefits of your meditation or yoga practice. Hold them to destress and unwind. Or to absorb negative energy from your chakras.
2. Place crystals on your body
Whether during rest or in the bath, simply placing crystals upon your body can increase relaxation and decrease feelings of stress. Place on any area you feel tension, such as the chest or forehead.
3. Use crystals for manifesting
Use your crystal for manifesting your desires. Program it for your highest good in any situation. Then proceed with any additional ritual, prayers, or meditation that you like.
4. Carry a crystal in your pocket
Whether you need energetic protection, grounding, or any kind of metaphysical help, it’s helpful to carry a crystal in your pocket. That way you can hold it whenever you feel the need. Chose your pocket crystal depending on your intention.
5. Keep crystals at work
Two of the best reasons to bring crystals to work are to help create an energetically positive environment and to increase productivity. Display them right on your desk and enjoy the beauty and good energy they bring. Good crystals for work include citrine for success and tigers’ eye for positive interactions.

For good driving vibes, try keeping a few crystals in your car. It’s always good to program your crystal for safe travels and an enjoyable ride.
