I am drawn to dusting off and working with my crystals again this year, so will be posting a Crystal of the Week each week, and working with some of them as I feel I need to myself.

If you see a Crystal of the Week you would like to work with, here are three basic ways you can do so.

If you are completely new to crystals or if you read anything below you don't understand, I would suggest you start with this lesson: http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...als-101-a.html (Crystals 101)

Most crystals are inexpensive and can be purchased online - try Ebay shops in the first instance.

1. ASSIMILATION

This is a good method to use for healing. It's very simple - wear or carry the crystal at all times until the issue is healed. Make sure you cleanse the crystal periodically as it may pick up negative energies from you as the healing takes place. You can also sleep with the crystal. I advise placing it on your bedside table rather than under your pillow as some crystals will disturb your sleep.

2. ATTUNEMENT

This is a good method to use for a healing boost or to balance or develop a quality the crystal represents in yourself. The crystal must be cleansed before and after. Sit or lie comfortably in a quiet room when you are alone and will not be disturbed. You may wish to light incense to set the mood (think fire safety and use a proper incense holder). Hold the crystal in your receiving hand. This is opposite to your writing hand. Sit with the crystal for 10 minutes or until you feel uncomfortable or feel yourself "coming round" with a clear head, or the crystal drops from your hand involuntarily: these are signs that the crystal is "done" for now.

3. MEDITATION

This is a good method to use to gain insights on the properties of the crystal or if you want to bring its properties into your life swiftly. The crystal must be cleansed before and after. Sit or lie comfortably in a quiet room when you are alone and will not be disturbed. You may wish to light incense as above and/or play spiritual, classical or instrumental music - whatever helps you enter a meditative state. Hold the crystal in your receiving hand. Close your eyes and sit with the crystal for 15 minutes. If you wish to gain more from the crystal, repeat the process, increasing the meditation time incrementally by 5 minutes each time. Setting an alarm is a good technique for "coming to" after the allotted time if you have things to do or need to be somewhere afterwards. However, it's nothing to worry about if you fall asleep during meditation.

With any of these methods, you may wish to keep a journal or notepad to hand to record your experiences.

If you feel unbalanced or lightheaded after method 2 or method 3, you need to take time to ground yourself. Having a grounding stone such as hematite, smoky quartz or shaman/boji stones to hand is useful. Certainly have a glass of water to hand and take small sips until you feel more down to earth. Rubbing your ankles also helps to bring you fully into physical awareness.

Please post any questions here.
