You have a new friend, congrats! It's important to think of this new relationship as just that, so take the time to get to know your new stone.
Once home, bond with your stone. Cleanse it. Program it by setting an intention for purpose. For example, if you have quartz you may say: "Together we will work to heal my energetic field and raise my vibration. In turn, I will keep you charged and cleansed."
Cleansing Your Crystal:
Charging Your Crystal:
- Full moon light
- New moon void - black stones / protective allies
- A clustered crystal
- By setting an intention
Using Your Crystal:
However you chose to work with your new ally, take time and listen. Spend time holding it in meditation. You can even hold it to your ear! You never know what you might hear.
Just make sure, if you take it in the water, your stone can survive. Water is not safe for selenite, black tourmaline, blue kyanite and others, so do your research.
