Crystals & Lithomancy
Most of us love crystals we like to wear them as jewellery or have them on display at home but they can also be used for meditation, manifestation, healing, psychic development and readings.
With loads of different types of crystals to choose from it can get a bit confusing on where to start so here are a few that might help if you are a beginner.
Tigers Eye is used for grounding and protection, both of which are really important when you start opening up your psychic abilities.
When it comes to actually opening up, Amethyst is a really good crystal to use. In ancient cultures, only the Priestesses, Priests or Kings had access to the mystery of this stone and it is said to effectively plug us in to the cosmos itself, opening us and deepening our intuition and psychic ability.
Flourite is believed to take us even further along that journey but it needs be used with a lot of respect and reverence as it can open us up really quickly this a powerful stone and it should be used with great care.
Rose Quartz is linked with the heart chakra and is the stone of unconditional love,
very good especially if you are thinking of working as a psychic reader as it will also help you put aside your own judgements and do your readings from a pure heart.
Citrine is a lovely light coloured stone that can help us feel optimistic and deeply
connect with a strong sense of our own abilities and self worth, so it’s great for boosting confidence along the way.
Clear Quartz crystals these crystals can absorb negative energy and they can also be bought in a wand shape for directing energy also look out for ones that are still in their natural form with a point, rather than those that are polished into spherical or other shapes.
Before you use your crystals, it’s important to cleanse them. To do this, simply hold the stone under running water, as the water runs over the stone, visualise it being cleansed.
So now that your crystal is cleansed its ready for action, so now need to charge it, this means “instructing” the stone to do what you require of it, and you especially need to do this part if you are working with clear quartz or healing stones that have a particular healing property they need to be reminded of what it is that they will be doing, and it is very handy to do this if you will be giving it to a loved one, you have to tell it exactly what you want.
So find a comfortable and quiet place, so that you can connect with the energies within the crystal, hold the crystal and breathe slowly and deeply, feeling the crystal within your hand and focus upon how you want it to help you. In the beginning you may feel a little silly doing this but as you progress, you will become more and more used to it and may also find yourself meditating whilst charging them.
Keep them in a safe place where they can’t be handled by others, and ask that no one touch them or put them in a small pouch or box out of sight if you don’t feel comfortable explaining what you are doing.
Once you feel comfortable and have collected a few could give Lithomancy at try, it’s the ancient art of casting stones, and this is a very basic method it will get you started and working with your crystals on a psychic level.
This is a simple yes or no method the stones are as decided before the cast. For example, a black and white stone can be selected and the black one means “no” and the white one “yes” Then cast the stones having decided that, say, the one that lands closest to you is the answer, other variations that you might use is a silver one meaning “maybe”. Or use four stones – a white, black, silver, and brown, and have the silver one mean “maybe yes” and the brown one “maybe no”. A popular reading is to use five stones, with one being the Personal Stone. Then the stone that lands closest to the personal stone indicates the answer.
Have fun, connect with your crystals and see which ones work for you, and if you’re like me over time you will end have a whole collection to work with and admire.
