How to use emotional healing crystals?
Set your intention and connect with your emotional healing crystals:
First, you always want to set your intention and connect with your crystal before using it for emotional healing, or any other purpose for that matter.
To do so, simply place the crystal in between your palms and close your eyes. With the crystal in your palms, take a deep breath and focus on opening your heart center.
As you connect to your heart, envision the energy of your heart chakra flowing down your arms and into your palms where it meets and encompasses the crystal.
With silent prayer (other choice words for prayer: intention, invocation, devotion, communication) invite the crystal to work with you on your emotional healing.
This can be something like “Hello selenite, thank you for finding your way to me. I ask for your assistance healing and releasing xyz. I invite you to assist me with this and appreciate your energy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
