Crystals affect us through their frequency so that we can resonate with their qualities.

As they are undoubtedly living minerals, they deserve to be treated with care and affection. And like any relationship, we can uplift or “smear” our relationship with crystals, depending on our approach, behaviour, actions, and intention. Crystals affect us through their frequency, which they have due to the crystal’s structure, colour and shape. When we come into contact with a crystal, its frequency is transferred to our energy field. In this way, the crystal awakens a vibration within us so that we can resonate with its qualities. This can only happen if we are exposed to the crystal for a long enough period of time, if the crystal is large/powerful and pure enough, and if our problems are not of a more complex nature. In any case, the crystal awakens in us the qualities it possesses. Whether we are able to manifest and live these qualities is another matter.

Children are often very attracted to crystals. They can use them as desired without any problems or side-effects. Thus, they are often good companions and helpers in overcoming fears, calming down in the evening, teething, etc.

Crystals can also be programmed. They can be imbued with information that we want them to carry and spread to their surroundings, e.g. programming for healing, protection, attracting desired events, helping to achieve a particular goal, etc.

The first and basic rule is: when choosing a crystal for yourself, choose the one that appeals to you in some way, whether it is because of its colour, shape, structure, or beauty. Only in the second stage, when making your final choice, should you consider its characteristics. But remember that each crystal has many properties and a very wide range of functions. Do not be narrow-minded and do not categorise them unfairly.

Be careful when choosing, as there are also imitations, coloured crystals or fake crystals on the market. I therefore suggest that you buy only from reputable stores.


If you are an amateur user, then it is sufficient to cleanse the crystals before the first use, after which occasional cleansing will suffice. Cleanse them especially of negative energies and vibrations that have built up during use. There are several ways of cleansing, but most crystal therapists recommend rinsing the crystal for a few minutes under running cold water. The crystal can (but does not have to) be charged after cleansing. This can be done by placing it in the sun, under the (full or waxing) moon for 2−3 hours, or burying it in the ground to re-energise it with universal energy. Generally speaking, crystals that do not like the sun are charged under the moon, crystals that do not like the moon are charged under the sun, and crystals with a lot of earth energy are buried in the ground.


Although crystals are very widely used and have many healing and magical properties, for amateur use crystals are quite simple and harmless to handle. There is no need to be afraid, you can hardly do anything wrong. Sensitive, unstable, and weak people are more likely to feel the (good or harmful) effects of crystals, but otherwise it takes a lot of knowledge and practise to use crystals properly for therapeutic reasons. But do not worry, you can play, explore, and build your own relationship with crystals. It is your intention and your relationship with your chosen crystal that will first and foremost relax and energise you, and as a result your body will also benefit from the regeneration and effects of the crystal.
