Ready to access your highest self? Great! Grab your favorite healing crystals and get ready to feel grounded, energized and rejuvenated. Here’s how you can use healing crystals to enhance and transform your life.
How Do Healing Crystals Work?
When you use crystals for healing, you access the properties within the stone that release healing energy, vibrations, and frequencies. Using crystals for healing is a 6,000-year-old practice, despite its recent boom in popularity, it’s been around for millennia. Healing crystals incorporate life-energy, which is a Chinese method of accessing vortices of energy that connect us to metaphysical and holistic energies. Crystal healing ties in the Buddhist method of accessing the chakras, or energy centers, along the spine to bring harmony to the body, mind and spirit.
However, simply holding a crystal won’t elevate you to peak mindfulness. Instead, you use crystals to foster healing by setting intentions and turning introspective to invite peace and healing. And once you access that space? Game changer!
There are several ways to use healing crystals, and it ultimately depends on the type of healing you need. Below, we’ll cover the various ways you can use the power of healing crystals to generate positive changes in your life.
5 Ways To Use Healing Crystals
Just as the spectrum of crystals for healing is diverse, vivid and varied, so, too are the ways in which you can use them. Truth is, there isn’t just one way to use crystals for healing. Instead, you can bring them into your environment to optimize your daily well being. From wearing crystal jewelry to meditation crystals to home decor, peppering crystals throughout your life will lead to an open and consistent flow of positive, healing energy all around you.

Program Your Crystal
The first thing to do is to program your crystal with a manifestation, goal, or intention. The best way to do this is to hold the crystal in your hands, close your eyes, take a deep breath and say exactly what your intention is for the crystal. There are a variety of popular scripts, but they all align with the same intention: to ask for a high vibration of love that you can connect your highest self with, while also eliminating negative energy and programming. Then, you can command the crystal to hold your intention, whatever it may be.
After you state your intention clearly, say thank you not once, not twice, but three times. Doing this will crystallize the fact that your intention is in the Universe and waiting to manifest into reality for you. At Zenluma, all of our hand-selected healing crystals are pre-cleansed so that you can start healing with them immediately. This step is especially important as healing crystals absorb energy and cleansing them will rejuvenate them to be available to your intentions.
Meditate with Healing Crystals
After you’ve programmed your crystals with your intention, you can strengthen the spiritual bond with meditation. Crystal healing harnesses the power of the Universe; the sun, moon and stars all work in alignment to serve your intention. When you combine meditation with healing crystals, you tap into a powerful, metaphysical space.
To meditate with crystals, find a tranquil space and sit cross-legged. Hold the crystals in your open hands above your knees, or hold one in your hands in front of your heart. Close your eyes and focus on your intention. While you meditate, you are not praying, rather contemplating and mindfully bringing awareness to your intention. The goal is to shut out the noise of exterior stimulation to go deeper into your internal self and mind’s eye. Start by meditating with crystals for five minutes, and when you feel you’ve mastered it, move up to ten minutes, and so forth.
Adorn Your Space in Crystals
Bringing crystals into your home and environment has amazing benefits. The crystals work to cleanse your space of negative energy and promote peace and calm. In addition to their healing properties, crystals are stunning decorations that invite the earth and nature into your living space. Many people place crystals throughout their home and in every room to cleanse the space and promote positive vibes. You can choose a crystal theme, or scatter assorted crystals around your home. However you choose to decorate with healing crystals, you’ll experience elevated consciousness, awareness, and tranquillity throughout your home.
Wear Healing Crystals
Speaking of stunning decorations, these precious stones make gorgeous accessories. Best part? Crystal jewelry enables you to wear positive energy throughout your day. Not only will you invite healing at home, but when you leave home you can take positive energy with you all day long. If you don’t love wearing jewelry, no problem! Throw a couple of small crystals in your purse or pocket to stay grounded on the go.
Crystal Healing Rituals
As we each embark on our journey through life, it’s natural for difficult times to arise and emotional wounds to open. In trying times, crystal healing rituals foster deeper healing. There are several healing rituals you can choose from. If you feel out of balance or stressed, place chakra stones on the seven chakras of your body for 10-20 minutes. If you have heartache or emotional turmoil, hold your favorite crystal to your heart for eleven minutes and breathe through your emotions. If your body is sore or in pain, place healing crystals in a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes for ultra-healing and detoxing. Be sure to check that your crystals are suitable for water, as some are not.
As you can see, there’s no limit to the ways to invite healing into your life with crystals. Whether you wear them daily, bring them into your work space or home, or practice rituals, you are sure to welcome the holistic and spiritual benefits of these mystical gems.
