Like everything, crystals are energy. They are also consciousnesses – extensions of the Divine, like people, animals and plants.

When we make an effort to consciously connect with crystals, our work with them rises to a whole new level. These 10 steps need not take more than 5 minutes, but you can take as long as you like with the process.

We recommend going through this process with each crystal individually so you can sense its energy without other influences. Once you’re familiar with each stone’s unique vibrational signature, you can repeat the process with groups of crystals and sense their energies together as collective.

  1. Make the decision to allow yourself to trust your process.

  2. Get still and close your eyes.
  3. Breathe softly into your heart and be unconditionally present with yourself for a moment, bringing your energy back into your body.
  4. Invoke the presence of the Divine, Goddess, God, The Universe, Great Spirit, The Force Of Love, Great Mystery, your Higher Self, your guides, angels… whoever or whatever higher force you’d like by whatever name you call It. Ask It/Them to be with you and to oversee this experience. Ask for help feeling divine presence if you need. Give thanks.
  5. Similarly, invoke the presence and spirit of the crystal. Bless it (send it love) and ask it to be present with you, and ask it to help you feel it’s presence.
  6. Sit in stillness with the presence of the crystal and be receptive. Just allow whatever you sense to arise. Some people see things, some people hear things, some people feel or just ‘sense’ things without having clear words or pictures. If you don’t receive anything, it’s okay!
  7. You can ask the crystal if it has anything it would like to show you. It may, or simply it’s energy may be enough. Please note that a crystal will never say anything mean or negative to you. If you receive anything that isn’t loving, it’s more than likely some pain inside you asking for unconditional love, healing and attention.
  8. Ask the crystal if it would be willing to help you with whatever you need help with.
  9. Thank the crystal and send it love.
  10. Journal your experience if you wish, to remember.

This process works for connecting with everything 🙂 The consciousnesses of crystals, plants, planets, stars, angels, animals, places, color consciousnesses… What’s more, you don’t need to buy anything to connect with the consciousness and vibrational medicine – you can connect with these consciousnesses any time from any place. Having a physical crystal can add an additional layer of support because it’s vibration will continue to work with you throughout your day, even when you’re not thinking about it.

We like to keep them on our person for most potent results, so however that works for you. Many women have been known to tuck them into their bras! Be mindful about putting them into pants pockets because you are likely to forget they’re there and they will go flying when you make a trip to the restroom (I’ve broken quite a few this way, so sad!). You can also place crystals around a glass of water and ask them to charge it, and then drink the water. Some crystals are toxic and cannot be placed directly in water, so be on the safe side and don’t put your crystals right in unless you’ve done your own research and made sure your crystal is water-safe. Crystals can also be placed in or gridded around spaces and asked to assist in shifting the energy there.

Most crystals need to be cleansed from time to time. There are a few sources online that list stones like Citrine and Kyanite as self-cleansing, but Selenite is the only crystal I know of that is consistently designated as self-cleansing. I err on the side of caution and cleanse the others. Highly absorptive stones like Black Tourmaline should be cleansed often.

The most common method of crystal cleansing these days is passing the crystal through smoke (sage, sweetgrass, cedar, juniper, pine, rosemary, frankincense, copal – take your pick!) while holding the intention that the crystal be blessed, cleansed and cleared of any energetic residue and restored to it’s pure divine state. Let your intuition guide the process and it will be perfect. I’m a words person, so I find myself using sacred words to move energy during the process. This will be totally unnecessary for others. Smoke cleansing is safe for all stones. Stones that are water-safe can also be placed in water with sea salt to cleanse them, however – the water and or salt may cause certain stones to break down (our beloved Selenite should never get wet!) as well as dull or deaden the brilliance of certain stones.

My favorite method of cleansing is placing my crystals on the earth for a full 24 hour cycle and asking Mother Earth to absorb and transmute all energetic residue. The bonus with this method is that the earth also charges the crystals. You’ll often find them sparkling and glowing… I swear they don’t even look the same after an earth bath! Just make sure to avoid dew or wet weather if you have fragile or non-water-safe crystals like Selenite.

Speaking of Selenite, it’s an excellent charging source for other crystals. Place them on or next to a piece of Selenite to both clear and recharge them. Crystals can also be charged under the light of the sun or moon. Solar charging is powerful, but certain vibrantly-colored quartz crystals will fade in the sun with prolonged exposure, so this type of charging isn’t recommended frequently for crystals like Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Celestite, etc. Lunar charging is safe for all crystals. Results are best under a Full Moon, or moon with a decent amount of light. Many astrologers are careful about which lunations they charge their crystals under (some are harshly aspected by other planets) and avoid eclipses altogether due to the interruption of light. However, not everyone believes this is a problem.

The important thing to remember is that everyone has the ability – and the authority – to work with energy and spirit. If you’re drawn to this work, it is for you and will develop and strengthen over time. There was a time I doubted whether what I was sensing was real. With practice and experience, I’ve come to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is. Claim your authority to work with energy, to craft your own rituals and practice and always, always, always do what feels right for you! This is by no means an exhaustive list of crystal cleansing and charging, but it’s a good start.

Please feel welcome and free to come into the physical shop to get to know our crystal friends! Hold as many as you like for as long as you like. We’ve created some gorgeous collections for very specific metaphysical, magical and healing purposes that are also available in our online shop that can be found HERE. Now that you have an intuitive process for connecting, you can tap in from anywhere…

Much Love, Brightest Blessings and Biggest Magic to You on your journey!

We often hear that the leading cause of our problems is within ourselves. But so is the solution.

It may seem far-fetched, but the power to solve all of our physical and emotional issues, whether it’s health, relationships, career, finances, self-esteem, or something else, is in our hands.

Metaphysical counseling helps us uncover the root of our suffering and address it accordingly. Let’s find out how!

Great for: Transitions, getting to the next level, breaking free of limiting beliefs or blockages, empowering one to believe in themselves, having accountability through your goals

what is metaphysics

Metaphysics is the most abstract branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of existence. In Greek, the word metaphysics means “after the things of nature”.

Metaphysics examines the very nature of reality. It offers explanations for phenomena that cannot be explained by “natural” science or that are “beyond the physical”.

This science studies the individual as a whole, as a physical and spiritual being.

Certain types of chakra healing and other holistic, spiritual healing practices, personal development, and even business coaching are based on metaphysics. They typically include working on physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of one’s being to resolve issues that person is facing.

The fundamental law of metaphysics is that every action or decision causes a reaction or an effect. Everything that happens to us (positive or negative) results from past actions or decisions in this lifetime or before the present life.

Similarly, everything we do now will have an effect on our life in the future. This law is better known as karma (action).

It is also believed that we must resolve our life’s issues in this lifetime.

What is metaphysical counseling?

Metaphysical counseling is based on the principle that everyone is sent by the Soul (higher self) to grow at all levels of their being through their life experiences and the lessons they learn in life.

Sometimes referred to as spiritual or transpersonal counseling, it represents a whole person approach – body, mind, and spirit. This type of counseling helps us better understand our life experiences by explaining aspects that our senses cannot perceive.

To put it simply, metaphysical counseling is a form of therapy that empowers us to empower ourselves.

There are many ways metaphysical counseling can take place. This will depend on the practitioner you choose, the kind of spirituality they practice, and the specific issues you may be looking to address.

Some counselors will advise you on the use of crystals for healing, while others will stress the importance of prayer.

This is why it is essential to find a counselor whose beliefs align with yours. Otherwise, your counseling might not have the desired effect.

What can metaphysical counseling help us with?

Metaphysical counseling is a type of holistic-approach therapy based on spiritual principles. This psycho-spiritual approach helps people live a more authentic life by making conscious choices.

It is a self-empowering therapy that gives us the tools to identify and address the imbalances in our belief system that cause conflict and prevent us from achieving success and happiness. These beliefs are so subconscious that we aren’t always aware of them.

With the help of a therapist, people can discover the fundamental causes of their suffering and reach a solution through self-discovery.

It is all about learning to utilize our own self-healing power to reinstate harmony.

This can apply on multiple levels – physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Good metaphysical counseling will address all of those.

What does a metaphysical counselor do?

A metaphysical counselor is capable of healing not only the human mind but the body as well. They can help with various mental issues, including depression, anxiety, and loneliness, or any physical illness, by offering guidance and support to their clients.

A metaphysical counselor can help us navigate our way to health, success, strength, or anything else we desire. They also help clients understand their spiritual nature in this lifetime and beyond.

Each counselor will have their own approach; some will focus on the metaphysical properties of the things around you and how to use those to your benefit, while others will prefer working on your own inner world.

We are all exposed to various positive and negative influences that shape our daily actions, thoughts, and reality. Negative impacts lead to issues like anxiety, negativity, and close-mindedness.

Metaphysical counseling aims to free people from these negative influences and their effects.

Gaining a better understanding of ourselves and our connection to the physical and spiritual world surrounding us with the help of a metaphysical counselor gives us the ability to recognize these harmful influences and build a defense mechanism.

The root of these problems lies deeper than the physical, mental, or emotional sphere. To find a solution, we must target the source. And that lies at the deepest and wisest level of our being – the level of the Soul. Many life situations can only be addressed through the metaphysical laws, and the soul factor is always present. Metaphysical counselors teach us numerous powerful techniques and spiritual principles we can utilize to find the greater good in any challenging situation.

They give us the tools to find a solution to our life issues without a struggle, using less energy in the process.

What to expect from your first metaphysical counseling session

During the first session, the client answers a series of questions regarding their life and the issues that are troubling them.

The counselor listens attentively to understand not only the surface issue but also the stressful beliefs and patterns that are causing the problem.

Further steps depend on the specific type of counseling and the counselor you choose. But after a counseling session, the goal is for clients to experience a greater sense of inner peace and well-being.

Not a one-size-fits-all approach

Metaphysics is a versatile form of therapy, so it can be adjusted to the client’s changing needs as the sessions develop.

Therapists use a variety of counseling skills and techniques. They usually determine which method is the most suitable, depending on the client’s condition at that moment.

For example, you may focus on meditation to prepare yourself for success but turn to more conversation-based therapy to deal with anxiety.

As you and your counselor work together, you will find what works best for you personally. This is one of the significant benefits of metaphysical approaches – they are highly flexible.

Metaphysics can be applied to almost any condition and is incredibly helpful with issues regarding:

mental health
challenges in the workplace
relationship issues
dealing with stress and anxiety
understanding emotional reactions
unlocking habitual patterns
