First things to do with Your New Crystals:
First you want to cleanse your crystals. Then you want to set your intention for your crystal or jewelry. Once you’ve done both of those things, you can explore the different ways to use crystals.
How to cleanse Crystals:
Once you've picked out your crystal or jewelry, it's important that you cleanse it to clear the energy of the many hands that touched it before you. We recommend running a new crystal under clean water and then placing it outside under the sun or moon for a few hours. Next, light some sage or frankincense resin on a charcoal and infuse the crystal or jewelry in the sacred smoke. Lastly, to clear any lingering or stagnant energy in the crystal, place it in a room with high-vibrational music playing like mantras. We find this simple four-step process of water, sun or moon energy, sacred smoke, and music cleanses the crystals on a multi-vibrational level.

My Crystal are nor working
Crystals work to amplify the energy you are putting out into the universe. In order for the crystal to work, you have to work. Set your intention each morning and connect with its energy. Cleanse your crystal often and put out the energy you wish to receive. Then be patient. The crystals will bring you what you need exactly when you need it. Be open to receiving in a way that is different than you expected. For example, to bring in wealth, you may set the intention of working hard and earning a promotion, however the universe may guide you to a new venture. Keep an open mind and notice what signs the universe is sending your way to guide you.
Also keep in mind that healing and "the work" isn’t always unicorns and rainbows. You may have experience a lot of emotions or be confronted with things you don’t wish to face, which are energetic blocks. By connecting with your crystal to keep you calm, centered and knowing during this time and allowing these things to be addressed, you’ll be able move forward. Once you are able to break through these blocks, you’ll experience a clear message on how to achieve your intention.
