I’ve received e-letters about how to draw the line between right and wrong concerning crystal usage. The truth is, we shouldn’t do something until things are clear to us. 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 use a method if I don’t have 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.
Our Creator can reveal how to use His creation; all we have to do is ask him (Matthew 7:7). He might reveal something 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. He can also reveal imbalances and issues within your soul and physical body if you ask Him. Of course, some people have a Spiritual Gift or talent of various forms of healing, and God does talk through and use people.
When filtering through worldly teachings, you need Spiritual discernment. I allow the Holy Spirit and the Bible to guide me here. Modern science and ancient knowledge can contain nuggets of truth wrapped in thorny branches. Just pray, compare it with your Bible, and filter the information. See what is helpful and what does not serve you–though learning is a process. You will always be a student. If we get impatient and just do whatever, we might end up using creation in a way that does not honor God, succumbing to the 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.
