Returning crystals to their natural frequency

Crystals are most effective when they are vibrating at their natural frequency. Over time, exposure to different energies may shift them away from this natural state. This means that every so often, your crystals will need to be cleared or reset. There are several methods by which this can be done, and you will learn over time which method is most effective for you and your crystals.

Using water to clear your crystals

The following video offers step by step instructions for one method of clearing and programming your crystals.

Note that this method should not be used for certain crystals that are not compatible with water. This includes those that are porous, contain metal, or have water content.

Using sound to clear your crystals

Some energies may cause your crystals to go out of tune with the Earth, hindering their ability to take in energy from the Earth’s electromagnetic field. Sound is a physical energy that has the ability to move matter, which makes it a very effective tool for clearing crystals.  When using sound to clear your crystals, there is no need to worry about the frequency as the amplitude is most important.

Bathe your crystals in one of these sounds:

  • Singing bowl
  • Gong
  • Vocal toning
  • Bells
  • Tuning fork
  • Drums

 

Exposing your crystals to high amplitude sounds for a few minutes will tune them to the Earth’s electromagnetic field. You can perform this method on all of your crystals at one time.

Building a relationship with your crystals

The molecular structure of crystals makes them powerful conduits of energy. As they form deep within the Earth’s crust, they absorb lessons from the Earth mother which prepare them to aid in healing, protection, and manifestation. If you’re new to working with crystals, it’s important to remember that they should not be treated just as tools, but as powerful co-creators. Building a relationship with your crystals is essential to their effectiveness and the first part of that relationship is proper care.

Five Ways to Protect Yourself From Psychic Attacks

Psychic attacks may manifest in the dream world or through energetic impacts on the body in the waking world. They are mental intrusions, efforts from free-floating energies or specific people, to enter your psyche and make some kind of detrimental impact or extract information.

Try not to fear since 1) the greatest defense tool is the power of love and light; 2) negative energies thrive in the presence of additional negative energies, like fear. This article provides guidance for protection using principles of love and positivity. Some psychic attacks require embodied warrior energy and/or the assistance of professional healers and shamans.

Five Signs of a Psychic Attack

  • Disabling fear or anxiety
  • Nightmares or night terrors, often involving attacks
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Emotional or spiritual paralysis
  • Questioning your path, values or sanity

Five Practices to Protect Yourself From Psychic Attacks

1. Clearing Ceremony

Use plant medicine, like sage, and crystal allies to clear negative energy and spirits from your environment and energetic field.  There are many variations of these ceremonies: try buying white sage and sweet grass. Burn the white sage and brush the smoke around your whole body then continue to fan the smoke around your house and particularly around your bed, if you have night terrors.

While you sage yourself and your environment, concentrate on the banishing or removal of negative or dark energy by holding light and love in your mind’s eye. Next, repeat the process with sweet grass. As you bless yourself and your space with sweet grass, invite in positive energy, guiding spirits, love and any other

I release negative energies so that I may serve my higher purpose.

2. Cord Cutting and Earth Cording

Try the powerful practice of cord-cutting at night and Earth cording during the day. Before you go to bed, imagine a cord between yourself and any person or thing that comes to mind, the cord originating from your belly. Using a pair of imaginary scissors, cut the cord between yourself and any external energy that you envision.

You can envision this as a series of cords or perform the exercise cord-by-cord. In the morning, just after you awake, envision a cord connecting you, from your belly to the center of the Earth. The cord is strong, flexible, omnipresent, and nurturing. Prior to bed, as you cut cords, say this intention aloud:

I release energetic attachments so that I may serve my higher purpose.

Saltwater can also be used for a more powerful ceremony. Begin by gathering all the energetic chords from your chakras into one handful. Using the other hand, slice the air between your body and the handful, and dump the chords into the saltwater. Repeat again with the chords coming out of your back chakras.
