What To Try First Time With Your Gemstone?

What To Try First Time With Your Gemstone?

Wall Streeters are spending up to $10,000 on healing crystals. That’s the most forward-thinking community with maximum profits and progress. Now you know what makes them strong and prosperous, eh? Get ready to claim your own because I’m about to simplify and reveal what to try first time with your gemstone!

If you’re a beginner, gemstones can bring unpredictable richness, health, and prosperity into your life.

What is the Use of Gemstones in Life?

Life is a mix of many things. It is full of ups and downs. Moreover, creating balance in life is an impossible task unless you are a hermit. Without the knowledge of spirituality, it is almost impossible to achieve peace on our own.

Even if you do, the peace is not sustainable.

When you use gemstone in an unstable life, our own energies get mixed with its ethereal variety.

Unlike our own petite positive energies, gemstone amplifies the chakra powers to create powerful energy in our body, mind, and aura.

That’s how gemstones re-write our destiny and fate.

What to Try First Time with your Gemstones?

Did you just buy a healing crystal? Perhaps you got a gemstone gift and this is the first time you’re using a gemstone in your life. Whatever be the case, it is important to ensure you use it in the right way than the wrong way.

Do you know the improper use of gemstones can lead to problems you never contemplated? From restlessness to feeling spaced out and ungrounded, gemstones are fragile beings that need to be catered properly and bonded with, for using their powers with our own.

1.    CLEANING your First Gemstone

Cleansing removes pre-absorbed energies in your gemstone from the universe around. In fact, it does not mean cleaning your gemstone physically. Spiritual cleansing of a gemstone involves removing the energies in it and re-setting the stone to absorb new vibes of your own.

To do so, take a clear quartz or selenite and hover it in a clockwise direction over the stone three times. You can also keep the stone under moonlight or sunlight to remove the sediment energies on it.

2.    Beginner’s guide to CHAKRA ACTIVATION with crystals

When you use the energy within a gemstone for chakra training, it is referred to as chakra activation. By this method, you need to rub the gemstone on your chakra point or at least point or touch it. Gemstone energies are so potent that it will penetrate your skin and instigate and fuel the chakras.

3.    How to Program your first crystal?  

Programming is much like activating your gemstone. See, when you get a new healing crystal, it is like getting a new phone. There is nothing on it unless you set it, right? Or consider the example of a friend you just made. Unless you connect with the friend, there won’t be incessant messaging or visits from the friend, right? The same happens once you communicate with your crystal for the manifestations you desire.

To program your crystal, you can use cleansing rituals or bond with the gemstone by carrying it. “Ask the permission of your gemstone to get started”.

4.    Making a CRYSTAL GRID with your gemstone

Our mind is a maze and the same is why often we get distracted even when we are talking face-to-face with one person. Blackouts and forgetfulness are other examples of humanly distraction too.

A crystal grid is a symmetric arrangement of crystals for specific manifestation purposes. The truth is, if you’re a beginner with gemstones, you need a clear direction to align your uses for the gemstone and crystal grid will guide you to do just that!

5.    Set your Affirmation with your stones

We talked about communicating with your crystal in the 3rd point about using your gemstone for the first time. In fact, setting affirmation is a vital step in every crystal ritual. Be it cleansing or activation, you can set affirmations that will trigger your desires to fruition.

All you need to do for setting affirmation with your first healing crystal is by saying your intention aloud or in heart, without faltering, directly to the crystal. You can also write it down on a paper and keep the crystal on the paper while practicing.

6.    GROUNDING RITUALs for beginners using gemstone

Have you ever felt like the gravitational energy was pulling you down? Perhaps you felt as if you were floating, dangling or levitating. Did this happen to you?

If so, you were ungrounded or grounded. Disconnection with the earth can make you ungrounded while too much energy with the earth can make you over-grounded. In both the cases, you are missing out on the important root chakra balance. Get it now with grounding techniques.

7.    How to make your first CRYSTAL ELIXIR?

Crystal energies take time and effort as well as willpower to actively penetrate the chakra or our skin. It doesn’t happen easily unless you’ve bonded well with the crystal over at least 7 years. The truth is, there is another way to infuse higher energies of the crystal easily.

All you need to create an elixir full of your gemstone energy is by immersing or soaking the stone in a bowl full of water under the full moonlight or sunlight for 3-8 or 12 hours. Lookout for toxic stones.

Best Crystals to Start your Gemstone Journey With

If you haven’t bought a healing crystal yet and want to start anew, it’s easy and I will help you right out. The best way to select your first stone is by checking your zodiacal birthstones. However, if astrology is too much for you, just select one of the following stones after checking their pictures out.

  • Clear Quartz for Getting Started as beginners
  • Using Citrine Gemstone as a Newbie for Wisdom  
  • Amethyst Gemstone for the First time to Detox the mind
  • Beginners should use Smoky Quartz to clear Confusions
  • Rose Quartz for Amateurs will clear negative thoughts
  • Use Chalcedony Gemstone for the First Time for Concentration
  • Selenite for Beginners bring purity of thoughts  

Before you go …

In the past thousands of years of using crystals, mankind has learned many things about the earth, nature, and universe as well as the mystic powers within it. There is no doubt you can learn all these by buying and working with your first gemstone too. Imagine everything you want coming true right away? That’s how celebrities and politicians around the world do it. Why should you miss out on it?

There are many rules about crystals to make it work. As a rule of thumb, you must not wear blue sapphire unless you’re proficient in healing crystals as it captures the potent energy of the planet Saturn or Shani!

Ask your doubts in the comments below and I will help you right out.

Stay powerful~

You are such a kind soul Cherry. I can totally feel your aura up till here.
Amethyst makes me feel like a Goddess. I levitate, I go everywhere from my mind to cosmos with amethyst in no time.
And, my amethyst cluster always drains so much energy to activate, but once activated, it powers my clairvision like a rocket on gas from jupiter. Perhaps its meant for someone else, like you said. I will gift it this christmas to my BFF who I think about when I use it.

Ceida, I must be, because several times I’ve found Amethyst in the gravel of our car park! Come to think of it, there have been quite a few times when I’ve literally stumbled upon different crystals. I’ve also had my very own “Sword in the Stone” moment (though in this case it was more like “Crystal cluster in the field”); walking our dogs with my father when I was 14, I found a small, opaque and iron oxide-coated Quartz cluster. My father (who had no gift with crystals, but was a very wise and gentle man) tried to prise it out of the ground, but he couldn’t: I managed it with only minimal effort. That cluster ultimately moved on, and although I was sad to see it go, my guess is, it was destined for someone else’s care, but needed my help to awaken first.

Love and Light.

@Cherry: Was it? Wow. Your destiny must be close. We believe amethyst finders are truly made for greatness!

Hi Ceida,

My first crystal was a piece of Amethyst. It amazed me with how it affected me, and you could say Amethyst and I enjoy a long and fruitful friendship! But its abilities had me hooked, and I soon wanted to experience the powers of new and different crystals (obtaining and experiencing a new kind of crystal is something I still enjoy very much, even now). That was it for me. I never looked back!

Definitely, Miranda. Pearl is an excellent gemstone-cum living being to use as a newcomer to gemstones.

Can I use pearl as a newcomer?

You are awesome Cherry! I totally agree with you. What’s the first crystal you used?

There are quite a few healing crystals which can overwhelm a “crystal newcomer”, or someone who’s new to the power of healing crystals. Here are a few which, as a crystal worker of 31 years’ experience, I’d advise crystal newcomers to take caution with:

1) Sapphire. As the blog says, Sapphire, no matter the colour (this goes for Ruby too, although the effects are different) is a powerful spirit gem that can leave a crystal newcomer totally ungrounded. Its power can be overwhelming sometimes, even for an experienced crystal user.

2) Fluorite. This remarkable multicoloured stone is your friend if you’re disorganised or easily distracted, but take care: its mind boosting energies are such that a crystal newcomer could be left in a trance, or possibly even out-of-body. This, of course, is rather risky unless you know how to stay connected to your body during such an experience.

3) Morganite: being a heart chakra stone, this one isn’t so serious, but for the young – particularly a young woman before her first relationship – it may not be especially effective. Morganite has proved – to me, at least – to be a stone that works better for the more mature woman, or at the minimum one in a solid relationship: it has a powerful ability to enhance enjoyment of intimacy, and I wouldn’t recommend using it in a less-than-serious relationship. It’s also an excellent gemstone to help with the symptoms of The Change. However, it does have one very useful property for any age group or gender: it’s brilliant at banishing bad dreams.

4) Black Tourmaline: for me, this is the ultimate in crystal protection, and I never leave home without my tetrahedral Black Tourmaline amulet; because, whether it’s feeling safe alone at night on the streets of an ‘iffy’ town (meaning, in this case, one where inebriated young men are frequently encountered), or a trip to my local hospital and the terrible negative energy that surrounds it (and gives me a near-migraine headache every time), my Black Tourmaline is my best friend. Even if my Rheumatologist does think it makes me look like a witch. It transmutes negative energies, putting its user in a kind of “bubble of positivity” which makes an ideal shield, turns ill-wishes back on their originator, and helps against negativity from within. Black Tourmaline also helps with pain, and that’s another of its awesome qualities… but mercy, it’s powerful! A crystal newcomer might want to wait and gain some experience with Green, Pink and/or Blue Tourmaline – no less powerful, and equally protective, but with less dense energies – before acquainting themselves with Black.

5) Lapis Lazuli: this gold-and-blue gem has been revered for thousands of years, and mined in Afghanistan for over six millennia. It is a very, very powerful psychic aid, a wonderful stone for opening the third eye chakra, and also excellent against colds and sore throats; however, when I acquired my first Lapis pendant, at the end of August, it had a highly unexpected effect: it spotaneously sent me about 1,500 light-years away in the space of a few seconds. Not to boast, but it’s utterly unheard of that any crystal can do that to me without my conscious involvement, with my experience levels. Hence the reason I’ve included it in my list: I’d be very distressed if I didn’t give this heads-up, only to later possibly discover that if I had, I could have prevented a very serious problem: a crystal newcomer, lost outside their body because they weren’t alerted to Lapis’ powers, the gem did the same thing to them, and they couldn’t get home.

Please let’s remember, though: there’s no blame to be laid anywhere in this context; it’s merely a matter of experience. As crystal newcomers gain more of this, they’ll find they can work easily with the more potent healing gems. Let’s also remember that crystals are not here to harm us: they’re here to help, and they actively want to help. All you have to do, is let them.
