How to work with a crystal:
Crystals absorb negative energy, which is one of the reasons they are so effective to work with, therefore it is imperative that you cleanse your crystal on receiving it and regularly thereafter.
Place your rose quartz under running water and visualise all the impurities and negative energies being washed away, then place either in sunlight (for few hours) or moonlight to dry and charge.
Set your intention
Intention is a powerful tool in healing and life. Before I embark on any Reiki healing session whether on myself, a client, an animal or a situation I always set my intention. Intention can be general (for a persons higher good) or specific (to help find love, to help heal a broken heart etc). In order to get the most from working with crystals it is essential to set your intention and dedicate the purpose for which you will work with it. This is very simple and need not take longer than a coupe of minutes. Take a moment to center yourself, hold your crystal, and clearly state your intention (be guided by what feels right for you). Your crystal is now ready to work with!
