Whether you are brand new to using crystals or wondering if you are on the right track, it helps to know the common mistakes often made with using crystals. You might be making some of these mistakes without realizing you are reducing the effectiveness of your crystals.
- Not Cleansing and Charging Your CrystalsAs a trusted functional medicine in Los Angeles, trust us when we say crystals are powerful and can absorb the energies around them, but this can also be a bad thing if you are not cleansing the energy and recharging them. You want to not only do this when you first acquire new crystals to get rid of other people’s energies but also as you use them in your own practice.How often should they be charged? It depends on how often they are used and if other people touch them, but typically, every full moon is a good reminder. You must also charge them if someone else has touched them or your energy or manifestations have changed.
- Using the Same Crystal for EverythingWe at Functional Medicine Los Angeles get it – you found a crystal you absolutely love and can just feel the energy and power radiating from it. The problem is, if you use that crystal for all your practices, with all the different energies, it is going to get blocked and will need cleansing and charging much more often.A better idea is to program and designate crystals for specific purposes. One crystal is used for a tarot reading to help open your third eye, and another crystal is placed in front of you for your manifestation rituals. Specializing in functional medicine in Burbank, we noticed how people often make the mistake of over-using a crystal and not setting proper intentions for it.
- Keeping Your Crystals Hidden AwayWhile it is good to keep crystals in a safe place, you don’t want them to collect dust and deplete them of their energy. As functional medicine doctors, we believe it is a good idea to display some of your crystals in different areas of your home after they have been properly charged with your intentions. Not all of them need to be out, as you want to be careful to avoid damage. But just think about having them in different areas of your home, like on your nightstand to help you sleep, in your kitchen, maybe in your purse, or at work.
- Leaving Them Out in Direct SunlightWhile it is okay to leave crystals out for a little while in the sunlight, they should not get constant direct sunlight. Throughout our years providing functional medicine in Studio City, we know that exposure to UV rays over an extended period can damage your crystals, causing the colors to fade or deplete them of their energy. If you want to keep them out after a full moon charge, only do so for one day, then bring them inside.
