- You can break the crystals or stones up into a powder and blend the powder in with your incense, to empower the incense with the stones quality.
- You can charge your stone with intent, and carry it, to help you to manifest certain qualities, like health, prosperity, or love. An easy way to carry the stones everyday is to wear your favourites in jewellery, i.e., earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
- You can add gemstones to oils that you wear or to candles that you are using for spell crafting, to help infuse the oils and/or candles with the stones metaphysical & magical powers.
- You can add stones to your dream pillows, & sachets.
- You can take a stone with you into your bathtub, to impart the quality of the stone to your Magickal Bath.
- Many magick spells can call for a particular rock or crystal. In magick spell crafting, you may need to sleep with it under your pillow, use it in a bath, place it on your altar, or even meditate with it.
- Single stones or crystals can be great for energy work with the chakras, as in chakra healing, and aura colour alignment and aura balancing.
- Single stones or crystals can add metaphysical energy to your feng shui fountains, or any other water fountain. As the water passes over the rock, the metaphysical energy of the crystal is released into the atmosphere. This can be used for healing, stress reduction, prosperity, love, you name it. The stone makes the difference.
- You can use crystal elixirs as a wash for a ritual or spell object, or the elixir may be drunk as an internal energy enhancer. To create an elixir, place a stone in spring water under the light of the Full Moon. This can then be stored tightly bottled in a cool, dark place. Or, place the stone in a glass of spring water for at least 7 hours under the light of the Sun or the Moon, then drink (removing the stone first!).
