Whispering Woods Crystal Grimoire

Crystals are one of the greatest gifts that the Gods have given us. Every crystal on Mother Earth has its own unique energy and vibration. And their uses are many. We use them for health, shamanic rituals, protection, happiness, and the list goes on.

When selecting a crystal, we in essence, let it select us. Not every crystal is right for every person.

When looking for a crystal, whether in the wild or at the store, we must first pass our hand over it to see if there is a connection. If the energy of the crystal doesn't reach out to you, then move on to another one.

Once you have connected with a crystal, you then need to clear out all of the energies that your crystal has stored up from others before you. This is recharging the crystal, and this should be done periodically with constant use of the crystal.

                                                            Recharging Crystals

As with everything that we do in the Craft, there are a number of ways to recharge crystals. One way is to place the crystal into direct sunlight for one to three days in order to let the suns rays recharge them. This can be a little harsh with particulary sensitive crystals.

Another way is to use the energies of the moon, by placing the crystal in the moonlight overnight.

Yet another way is to bury the crystal in the Earth for a week and let Mother Earth's energies absorb and recharge the crystal.

You can also place your crystals into a small creek or stream and let the running water do the recharging. This is done from one to three days.

And yet another way is to place the crystal on a bed of other crystals ( especially quartz ) for one to three days.

The method you use is a personal choice and dependant on the crystal and how heavy the use of it has been. When using crystals, keep in mind that this places a responsibility on us. Take care of your crystals and they will take care of you.
