Intention-Based Guide to Using Crystals in Your Life


Crystals, Rose Quartz, Intention, Violet Gray, Jewellery


I walked into a crystal store for the first time at age fourteen.

Stepping off the bustling streets of my home town in Coffs Harbour, I couldn’t believe the wave of relaxation that washed over me as soon as I entered the shop. It was unexpected, but suddenly my steps became lighter. Breath became slower. Voice became a whisper. This, I could feel was magic.

Crystals have been in my life ever since.

Wrapping them up as a gift to my mum, hiding them beneath my pillow and carrying them in my pencil case were just a few of the ways I used them in my adolescent years. My love for these precious stones has only become stronger and crystals now follow me wherever I go.


Crystal /ˈkrɪst(ə)l/
a piece of crystalline substance believed to have healing powers.


Ancient belief was that crystals were the bones of Mother Earth.

Grown from molten rock deep within the Earth, crystals are formed when the molten rock gradually cools and forms orderly, geometrical patterns.

A crystal’s regular and repeated pattern is what gives them the unique ability to absorb, store, generate and transmit energy. This makes crystals perfect for healing and manifestation.

So… If you are a newbie to the world of magical earth creations, or crystals, then welcome!


There is absolutely no right or wrong way to choose or work with crystals, but here are some of our tips:

Feel Into It

Getting started is all about feeling. Don’t over think it, simply feel it out.

– What crystal are you attracted to?

– How do you feel when you hold different stones?

– Which one fits perfectly in your hand?


Intuition & Intention

Your intention is more powerful than anything another person or book will tell you. So use these resources as a guide but ultimately listen to your own internal whisper.

You will attract exactly what you need.

When in doubt, you can always go back to basics and pick one of the most common and well known healing stones. These include clear quartz, amethyst, rose quartz or citrine. These crystals are perfect for beginners and hold core qualities of clarity, peace, love and abundance. Simple, right?





Using Crystals

Crystals can be used in a number of different ways. You can wear them as jewellery, meditate with them in your hand or even place them in water for a few hours and drink it. People, books and websites can all give you a thousand ways to use your crystals but nothing is more pure than using your intuition and trusting in them look after you.

Perhaps you’re getting an urge to take your stones for a walk along the beach? Maybe you’d like to pop a crystal cluster on the edge of the bath while you soak for a while? Sometimes it’s as simple as sitting with them and admiring their colour, patterns and inclusions. It doesn’t have to be an extravagant act of commitment. Follow your intuition – no one else needs to know about how you choose to honour and incorporate crystals into your life. Don’t be shy, just do what feels right.


Crystals for Healing

The healing power of crystals goes hand in hand with intention. With the ability to be programmed, crystals store and hold your own energy. Fill your mind with positive affirmations and your crystals with manifest your wildest dreams!


Lastly – don’t take it all (or yourself) too seriously. There is no pressure nor expectations, crystals and spirituality are meant to be light. Have fun with it, enjoy your crystals with a playful nature.


May crystals give you power, or at least magnify the power that already exists within you. You already know all that you need…

Gratitude to you Mother Earth – for selflessly offering a part of herself that brings so much joy to so many of us all over the world.
