In this article, you will learn…

A Brief Explanation of How Crystals Work

Scientists have confirmed ancient teachings in the discovery that the Universe and everything in it is made up of energy, vibrating at different rates.

Crystals have rigid atomic structures which leads to consistent frequencies of vibration for each type of crystal. The human energetic field also vibrates, but not at a constant frequency. Our vibration at any given time is influenced by our self-esteem, our actions, our experiences, and our environment.


When a crystal with a consistent vibration is placed on the body or within the human energy field, it brings that area of the body or field into harmony with the vibration of the crystal. In scientific terms, this action is called Reverse Induction.

When crystals are placed in a location, such as a home or office, the energy field generated by the crystals can infuse the space with a specific vibration through the same process.

Why Use Crystals?


Crystals can complement other therapies and support energetic well-being. Like Reiki, they provide healing on all levels of the Self: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Crystals can be used in a variety of ways, all of which can promote the Whole-Self healing process. Read on to learn more!

5 Ways to Use Your Crystals

In this section, you will learn five different ways to use crystals in your daily life to enhance your well-being and provide the benefits listed above.

#1: Carry/Wear

The simplest way to work with a particular crystal is to carry it with you, typically in your pocket. You can also place it on your desk, bedside table, under your pillow, or under the bed.

As you are working with prosperity crystals, there are several options to place a crystal for financial abundance:

  • In a purse or wallet
  • In a change jar
  • On your checkbook
  • By your computer (online banking and bill pay)
  • With any object you associate with money

A lovely option for working with crystals is to wear them as jewelry. This can be a necklace, pendant, earrings, rings, anklet, body jewelry, etc. When purchasing or making crystal jewelry, make sure to check the details about the stone to determine that it is the correct stone. Some decorative version of crystals are either made of glass or are actually a different stone that has been dyed or heat-treated to change its appearance.

Tip: Buying crystals in person is the best option when possible.

Wood element is best expressed in colors green and brown, rectangular shapes, and beautiful healthy plants.

Fire element is best expressed in colors red, purple, orange, yellow, and pink, triangular and star shapes, and any item that produces a flame.


Earth element is best expressed in colors beige, sand, and taupe, square shapes, pottery, crystals, stones, and images of earthy landscapes.

Metal element can be expressed in colors white and grey, round shapes, and any items that are made of metal or have a metallic finish.

Water element can be expressed in colors blue and black, flowing shapes, images of water, mirrors, and any type of decor that features water.

#3: Crystal Grid

crystal grid

According to Hibiscus Moon:

A crystal grid is a geometric pattern of energetically aligned stones charged by intention and set in sacred space for the purpose of manifesting a particular objective.

Most crystal grid patterns are based on sacred geometry. These are the natural shapes that occur over and over in the Universe, seeming to be favored as a means of energy transmission. Some of the most common forms of sacred geometry include spirals, hexagons, pentagons, and the Flower of Life.

To set up your grid, there are 4 Steps:

  1. A Base - The base can be any surface that you like. Suggestions for financial prosperity are wood, glass, and mirrors. Once you have chosen your base, decide which sacred geometry shape you will use.
  2. A Center Stone - The center stone will send energy to and from your other stones and out into the Universe. Ideally, the center stone should be the largest stone in the grid.
  3. Several Surrounding Crystals - You may use as few or as many stones as you like to surround the center stone. You may want to use several of the same stone or you may use all different stones.
  4. An Activation Crystal - This is usually a crystal or stone that is longer and used as a type of wand. This crystal will activate and direct your intentions and energy into the grid. You may want to write down your intention and leave it under the crystal grid.

How to activate your crystal grid:

  1. Charge your grid by putting your intention into the activation wand while you are holding it.
  2. Point the activation wand towards the crystal in the center of the grid.
  3. Move from one stone to the next using the wand in a geometric pattern. There are many options for this, such as moving in a circle, in lines, in triangles, etc. Just do what comes naturally to form the pattern over the grid.

Tip: Place your crystal grid in a place where you will see it often, but where it will not be disturbed.

#4: Gem Waters

gem waters

Gem Waters can be used for a variety of internal and external uses. To use gem waters internally, you will need to follow some safety guidelines. You will notice in the Crystals for Financial Prosperity section above, it is clearly indicated whether or not each crystal is safe in water.

Keep in mind that safety in water only applies to tumbled or polished crystals. Rough crystals should not be placed in water even if they are listed as safe!

How to Create Gem Waters:

  1. Arrange your container of water and crystals using one of the following methods:
  • Place Crystals in Water - Required: Safe in Water: Yes
    If the crystal is safe for use, you can place it directly in a container of water. If the crystal is not safe for use, there are two alternative methods for creating gem waters, listed below.
  • Test Tube Method - Use with:  Safe in Water: No
    Place the crystal in a water tight container and place the container directly in water.

  • Reverse Induction Method - Use with: Safe in Water: No
    Place the crystal(s) around the outside of the container of water. If using a crystal grid, the container of water becomes the Center Stone.

2. Place your container of water in the environment in which you want it to be charged. Some common options are:

  • Outside in the Sunlight
  • Under the Moonlight
  • On top of a photo
  • On top of a document
  • Surrounded by other objects

3. Place your container of water in an appropriate environment for 12-24 hours to charge it. Gem waters should be used within 24 hours after charging is complete. Using preservatives in gem water is possible, but lies outside the scope of this article.

How to Use Gem Waters:

  • Drink it or use it in cooking, coffee, tea
  • Create a room or healing spray
  • Use in your bath or shower
  • Add to mop water or laundry
  • Create tinctures or compresses

Tip: When in doubt, do not place crystals directly in water.

#5: Crystal Meditation

Meditation is the process of focusing the mind to achieve a state of stillness. Crystals can be included in meditation in a few different ways:

  • Hold the Crystal

While holding a particular crystal in your hands, close your eyes and begin to meditate. Move the crystal back and forth in your hands, noting its shape, surface, and vibration. Do you notice a difference in the flow of energy from one hand to the other?

  • Place the Crystal

Crystals can be placed directly on the body or in the environment surrounding the body.

  • On the Body

Place your crystal(s) directly on the body as you meditate. This may be easiest while lying down. Close your eyes and begin to meditate. Focus your attention at the location of the crystal(s). Can you feel any sensations (heat, cold, tingling, etc.) in your body where the crystal is placed?

  • Surrounding the Body

Place your crystal(s) around, but not touching, your body. If you are using a number of crystals, you can set them up as a crystal grid around you with your body as the Center Stone.

  • Visualize

You can also meditate with crystals without having a crystal present. If you are familiar with your crystals and their meanings, you can visualize the stone in an appropriate location to heal a situation, seeing its color and shape while feeling its energy.

Tip: Remember you can meditate with a crystal even if it is not with you!
