Crystals and the Law of Attraction
For those of us who love everything woo-woo, here’s all you need to know about incorporating the earth’s gemstones to enhance manifesting magic:
(ok, maybe not all, but it’s a start!)
What Are Crystals?
Are they just pretty rocks, or do they convey creative magic?
Like everything on the planet, crystals have consciousness. They formed in the earth over time (some are over 4 billion years old!) and each type of gemstone has its own particular energetic frequency.
Many believe crystals aid in earth’s evolution and raise our consciousness. Judy Hall writes that “crystals are the earth’s DNA, a chemical imprint for evolution.” (I like that thought!)
The vibrational energy of the crystal is what a conscious creator is working with when they include gemstones in their manifesting work.
How Gemstones Aid Manifesting
Crystals have been called a “magic technology” since they serve as transmitters, receivers, and magnifiers of energy.
Some creators like to program their desires into a crystal and let it do the attraction work of manifesting 3D results.
Others use crystals to help clear themselves of negative energies in order to enhance vibrational alignment.
Teal Swan shares that a crystal’s energy patterns are incorruptible, which is why we entrain energetically to it when working with them. (Like a tuning fork, of sorts.)
I play with them because it’s fun and I like it. 🙂
All of them, I say! All of them!
Okay, if you’re not a crystal addict like me, you can actually be selective about which ones to play with to expand your results with law of attraction.
Those guides will tell you which crystals to use for what; i.e. rose quartz for manifesting love, citrine for abundance, merlinite for mystical experiences, etc.
I did that for years but now prefer to let the crystals guide the way. (Sort of like putting the dream interpretation book aside and finding my own answers.) Or you can let your intuition tell you based on what you feel drawn toward.
Working with crystals is a great time to practice trusting your inner guidance.
How To Use Crystals (Programming & Cleansing)
I used to be mystified about how to engage the magic of crystals until learning we don’t actually have to do anything … crystals know what to do for you. They show up in your life for a reason, and don’t need your direction.
Just let them do their magic!
I like that approach, although just this week (at the summer solstice full moon) I used a couple of crystals in an intention ritual for financial success (among other things) and within 24 hours received a surprise financial windfall in the thousands.
So trust your guidance on what approach feels best to you.
If you’re going to program a crystal with an intention, it’s basically a matter of focusing your desired outcome or intention onto the crystal and letting it do the attraction as your universal agent. Learn more here if you want to go that route.
I have two twin septarian geodes (estimated 70 million years old!) in the kitchen. One is programmed/named “For Fun” and the other “ForEver” that remind me every time I pass by to lighten up and not rush through life.
They serve as energetic assistants to be present and have a good time. Great friends to have, right?!
You can play with crystals in all sorts of ways:
- Placed under your pillow or bed
- In a healing grid
- Worn as jewelry
- Carried in your pocket
- Stored in your purse or car
- To charge your water
- In meditation
- For space clearing
- Programmed with intentions for specific manifestations
– or however else you feel inspired to engage them.
Those who work with gemstones regularly will tell you that most of them do require a regular energetic cleanse. Whether in moonlight, sunlight, water, smudging, salt, etc. you’ll want to research your crystal to make sure you don’t damage it via your cleaning method. (Says the girl who learned that the hard way.)
Crystals can help you heal, clear internal negativity, support your spiritual growth, aid in psychic or physical protection, open you to new ideas and insights, even help plants and gardens thrive.
But it’s important to remember that you are the conscious creator, so don’t hand off your power to crystals. (Or any tool, for that matter.)
Gemstones can be incredibly delightful partners in your expansion, but it’s best to think of them as aids rather than replacements for the power we have as manifestors.
Above all, my experience with crystals is that they’re super fun and exceptionally intriguing. So of course those good vibes just bring more good things. 🙂
