When gemstones are placed on the body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the stone to the individual who embraces its energy. According to the law of physics, thought directs energy and energy follows thought. Each energy piece is a vehicle to help the thoughts of our consciousness connect with our body.
Crystals transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. The process of Laying On of Stones may be done with clear quartz crystals only, colored gemstones only, or a combination of both. A laying on of stones can be quite intense. The healing changes usually are major energy shifts, causing an emotional release of past and present stresses and transformative events. The changes are always positive and are not to be feared for they are usually gentle in spirit.
Start by cleansing your crystals and gemstones. This is easily done by holding them under running water while saying “I cleanse my crystals and gemstones of any negative energies and dedicate them to the highest good of all.” If you feel they need a deeper cleansing, after holding them under running water, wrap them in a cotton cloth and place them outside (in the sun, if possible) for 24 hours before using.
After placing your stones, whether holding in your hands or on your body, relax and when you are at peace, repeat three times the following:
- I am patience
- I am compassion
- I am wisdom
- I am mercy
- I am serenity
- I am love
- I am selfless in the light of one.
Or if you prefer these affirmations:
- I make wise decisions regarding my life, my family and my finances.
- I release anxiety with every breath and have the power to bring calm to my mind.
- I radiate and attract love.
- I am patient and understanding.
- I choose to be healthy and to make healthy choices.
- I am intelligent and feel comfortable meeting new people.
- I am grateful for the blessings in my life.
- I see the good things in my life.
- I accept the abundance that is flowing into my life.
- I am open to accept all the positive opportunities that come my way.
Crystals and gemstones act as a conductor of your thoughts. They help you gain access to your own inner wisdom. As you continue with your everyday life, you might want to wear a crystal pendant or carry a quartz crystal (or a gemstone of your choice) in your pocket.
