Crystals are essential components of almost every technological item, from cell phones to satellites. Colleen McCann is a certified shamanic energy medicine practitioner. She emphasizes both the scientific as well as the mystical aspects. McCann was a former fashion stylist, and her appreciation for beauty is evident when she works with beautiful crystals. McCann has traveled all over the globe to study crystal traditions from different cultures and times. She divides her time between the two coasts and conducts crystal readings, space clearing, balancing, and intuitive coaching sessions for business owners.

This is her breakdown of the eight most important crystals. It was inspired by a shaman’s medicine bag. McCann clears each stone of any previous energy (more below on crystal energy) and places positive intentions and blessings in each one.

What makes crystals so powerful?

Science and mysticism meet here: Crystals date back millions of years and were formed during the very beginning of the earth’s creation. Crystals are a permanent database of knowledge. They retain all information that they have been exposed to. Crystals can absorb information, whether it is a severe weather pattern or an experience from an ancient ceremony. They then pass it on to others.

Crystals are considered the most ordered structure in nature. This means that they have the least amount of entropy, which is a measure of disorder. Crystals respond to all energies and emit specific frequencies. Crystals are essential for modern technology because of their balance, frequency, and ability to store enormous amounts of information. These crystals are found in computers, televisions, cell phones, satellites, and other modern technologies.

Since the beginning of time, crystals have attracted people to them for their divination and healing rituals, burial rites, spiritual advancement, spiritual advancement, and decorations to signify power. Intuitively, our ancestors knew that the energy of the stones could interact with the electromagnetic field of the human body to cause energetic changes. People gravitate to vortexes (where energy enters the earth or projects out of its plane), such as Stonehenge or Sedona, because these massive, magical rocks are situated on top of energetic lines, which can be considered an energy portal or place for power. People wear diamonds to signify that they are bound together. Diamonds are the strongest natural substance on the planet. Royal crowns are adorned with crystals.

How can you choose good crystals?

Each crystal type serves a different purpose so it all depends on what you are looking for. Some stones can be used to heal the body or to tap into intuition during meditation. Others are used in technology and as part of building structures. (See below to learn more about the eight powers of eight crystals.

Having said that, I have met many vendors around the globe and only source crystals from trusted vendors. It is a bit like knowing the origin of your meat or certifying that the ring you are buying is not a blood diamond. Every object has energy; you want the best crystals to reflect that positive, clear, and clean energy. I ask the crystal shop owners where and how they harvest stones. I also ask if they have any information about the stone they are choosing. The most important thing is that a crystal will communicate with you if it is yours. You might feel the stone heat in your hands, feel it send tingles to your arm, or feels a third-eye buzz. When a stone is yours, trust your instincts. If the stone doesn’t feel right, trust your intuition. It’s probably not meant for you. You can use the following cleansing steps if you feel that a particular crystal is yours but it’s not physically clean or needs to be cleansed.

Are there any special ways to care for crystals

Crystals placed on altars should only be cleaned once per month. It is recommended that crystals be cleaned at least once per week if you are using them daily or meditating with them. Below are the instructions. Cleaning is important because it removes any stale or dense energy that the crystal might have picked up from its environment or you. Cleaning is like washing your face to get rid of dirt and debris. It is important to clean your crystal immediately after someone touches it, which you do not want. Because stones are beautiful and shiny, people naturally want to touch them. You are the crystal and you can only use your vibration or energy to make it personal. It’s like sharing mascara or a toothbrush.

There are many ways to clean stones. You can use any one of these:

  1. For a week, place them in the dirt. Your crystals and stones can be returned to the earth to clean and recharge with the earth’s vibrations.
  2. Saltwater is a good option. It purifies and absorbs any negative energy. Note: Crystals can disintegrate when they are wet. Common stones that are not water-resistant include amber, red corals, fire opals, calcite, and kyanite. It is a good rule of thumb to remember that many stones ending in “ite”, are not water-friendly.
  3. The crystals should be left out in the moonlight three days before and three days following the full moon, or for at least 24hrs. The full moon brings out the lunar energy, which cleanses and charges the stones.
  4. Use a soft cloth with isopropyl alcohol for fingerprint removal and to clean them.
  5. It is purifying to burn sage and to run the stone through it.

BLACK OBSIDIAN CRYSTALS

The root stone, which is the first chakra, helps you feel grounded.

CARNELIAN CRYSTALS

The product’s fans claim that carnelian (second (sacral), chakra stone) provides emotional support for female reproductive problems, supporting girls at menarche as well as women of all ages in respecting and valuing their life-making abilities. *

Mystical Homework

Your carnelian should be packed with your tampons. The moon’s cycles govern menstruation, which is why moontime was created. This is also the reason why women used to sit in moon lodges and bleed together. Hold the carnelian in one’s hand whenever you feel PMS. You can also lay down and place a carnelian on your abdomen at that time.

CITRINE CRYSTALS

Superpowers

Citrine is a stone of the third Chakra, which is the energy center of the body. It catapults women into leadership roles, making things happen in the business world. It is associated with creativity and wealth. Citrine is a great way to help you feel confident in your power and establish healthy boundaries in all areas of your life.

Mystical Homework

Citrine is great for a 30-day Abundance Altar. Place the citrine piece on top of a stack of clean, crisp $1 bills on your desk. (I have done one hundred $1-bills. The new bills signify that the money is infused with fresh energy. This gives new meaning to the expression “dirty money”. You can also add other items to your altar to symbolize power and abundance. You could include a small statue or photograph of Goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, or a Chinese Buddhist Feng Shui tradition that adds a small money tree to your altar. Green represents money, prosperity, and growth. Once you are done decorating the Abundance Altar it can be activated. This is a great opportunity to make a ceremony. To clear the air, burn some palo santo or sage and spend some time at your altar to visualize what you want to do in your career. Positive energy can help us manifest our goals faster. Thoughts have a lot of power. As you visualize, you can also hold the money or citrine in your hand. This process can be repeated for 30 days. If you want to go all out: Feng Shui has everyone having a “success” direction in their Bagua chart. Before you begin the 30-day ritual, locate your success direction and place your Abundance Altar there.

Wondering why crystal stores have large purple amethyst geodes in corners of their rooms? Amethyst is a stone that removes negative energy from a room and keeps “energy vampires out” of your personal space. Amethyst, a stone of sixth (third eye), and seventh (crown), chakras, is extremely high-vibration and beautiful. It helps us tap into our intuition to connect to higher planes.

Mystical Homework

Drop amethyst in a water filter pitcher or bottle, and then you can just drink the water. Amethyst can be consumed safely (some crystals may not be so, please ensure you can verify the source). However, it is important to clean amethyst thoroughly before you put it in water (see the details above).

Chrysocolla, also known as the Goddess Stone is associated with the fourth and fifth chakras. It helps women to embrace their divine feminine power by empowering them, expressing themselves clearly, and enabling them to communicate effectively. It stimulates the mind and has calming effects that allow truth and inner wisdom to emerge and be heard. It encourages compassion and strengthens character. It enhances intuition and analytical abilities, and it can bring forth prosperity and eagle eye discernment in business. It is the stone of high priestesses, goddesses, and medicine ladies all over the world. Those who resonate with chrysocolla feel its ancient energies as well as a connection to indigenous wisdom traditions.

Mystical Homework

Now is the time to use your goddess’s voice and show some love to raise our collective vibration. For the next 30 days, say to another woman how much your respect her and what she does. If necessary, you can also apologize. After you have spoken with the woman, whether she is your mom, best friend, or colleague, find a quiet spot and place your crystal in your right hand (energy flows out of your right side again). For a few moments, visualize sending the woman positive vibes. Universal law states that what you put out will reflect on you. If you require some love, it is best to give it to others.
