I’ve received e-letters about how to draw the line between right and wrong concerning crystal usage. The truth is, if God wants you to learn this healing art, He will provide the knowledge, wisdom, and understanding for you to do so. So chill-out. Besides, there are countless ways to incorporate crystals into your life; it’s really a personal experience and your particular preference.
And sometimes I think, well, how do you use concentrated herbs, food, healing clays, and other creations in the right way? They’re all energetic, vibrational medicine when you get down to the nitty-gritty. I see everything as being connected. I also use crystals in very practical ways. I do not experiment or do a method if the Holy Spirit does not give me complete clarity. I know these creations are widely used in ways they should not be, which can be confusing. But not too long ago, Christians thought herbalism and science was wrong for some of the same reasons.
We know that our Creator can teach us how to use His creation–first hand; all we have to do is ask him (Matthew 7:7). He might answer while you are praying, studying your Bible, or one day when you are reflecting on creation. This is how I learn(ed) some of the things I know. God is the one that told me his creation was healing. I actually scoffed at the idea of crystals being healing years ago; he can also reveal imbalances and issues within your soul and physical body. Of course, some people have a Gift or talent of various healing abilities, and God does talk through and use people.
When filtering through worldly teachings and classes, you need Spiritual discernment. I allow the Holy Spirit and the Bible to guide me here. Modern science and ancient wisdom can contain nuggets of truth wrapped in thorny branches. Just pray, compare it with your Bible, and filter the information. Allow the Holy Spirit to reveal what is helpful and what does not serve you–though learning is a process. You will always be a student. If you get impatient and just do whatever, you might end up using creation and crystals in the wrong way, succumbing to your flesh. The following are a few crystal practices I do not take part in. Some of these practices I have mentioned in other posts, but now they are in a neat little list.
