Hey there! I am a crystal rookie, I have never tried anything crystal related or even really much meditation so this is very new for me! I have anxiety that causes me to have a lot of panic attacks at random times, I've tried CBT, medication, group classes, yoga and all sorts with not much relief. I have a family friend who was once a lot like me but when I arrived at her house, there were crystal's everywhere and she just seemed so serene.. She told me it might be worth a try and while other's have been sceptical, there's nothing like a mental disorder to show you the power of the human psyche! I know it may not work for me, but I want to try and I hope (even if it's not a cure) I can gain something from it! I bought a small set of polished chakra crystals which are supposed to be good for meditation.. I admire everyone who can make crystals work for them. It seems like such a loving community based in self growth and care. I hope you can all tolerate my ignorance! 🙂
I would love any advice or even a penpal who I could rapid fire my (probably quite dumb) questions at!
For example, is cleansing necessary?
Is a crystal bad in the wrong hands?
Can a crystal actually make my anxiety worse, or is it more about your intent with the crystal you're using?

Sorry for the long message, I hope you're all having a wonderful week! :p

Welcome,

I was excited when I read your post, so much to share with you about crystals! But then I was a bit sad when I read your name.

You will get lots of answers, some good, some bad, some just plain wrong.

I would say in a nutshell .... avoid salt - it damages crystals. Ignore programming - it's not necessary. And choose what you feel is right not what a book tells you!

Cleansing can really help with the feel of a crystal and to also earth their natural energy.

A crystal bad in the wrong hands, mmm well there is the possibility that intent can go awry and then perhaps with a few points and wands energy could be misused but I wouldn't worry, easy to say though heh?

Some crystals may make you feel worse, some crystals just don't sit right with some people. I have seen some people pick up a crystal in the shop then drop it like it was hot lol others keep coming back pick it up put it down so many times. But you won't hurt yourself or be damaged or harmed.

Dee what you feel from the chakra set, are you drawn to any one crystal or the colour? which one do you like the best, the least etc Slowly think about them 🙂

Ah, sorry! It's an old username I've had for many years, I guess I only just saw it's negative side! I would like to be more in tune with my spirit if that's even possible!

Thank you ever so much for your kind advice!
I was initially drawn to my green aventurine crystal, which was odd because it was the one I admittedly knew the least about. I tried sitting with it and felt relaxed but I couldn't be sure if it was the crystal or the meditation.. I hope to become closer to it at some point, but it's tough! I also felt myself well up at one part during meditation but I didn't feel sad or frustrated which was strange but interesting! I wonder if I didn't cleanse the crystal correctly and it has old energy from the seller, or can a crystal really make me feel like that? What a fascinating world this is!! I'm enjoying exploring and learning all I can!

Ha you are having a fun time, Can crystals make you feel like this..? Yes they can.

The Green Aventurine is very calming and healing and probably is representing the Heart Chakra in your set so it will be working with that area of your emotions.

To answer your questions-
1. is cleansing necessary? YES! Crystals that are not self cleansing, keeps absorbing the negativity from the space to clean the space. You must clean crystals before and after use.
Is a crystal bad in the wrong hands?
Not exactly. While a crystal can be used for black magic, evil magic always backfires.
Can a crystal actually make my anxiety worse, or is it more about your intent with the crystal you're using?
Depending on the crystal, your anxiety can become worse. Pick your stones by the malefic and auspicious planets. Find your auspicious planets and wear stones that do not conflict with each other.

[LIST=1]

  • is cleansing necessary? YES. It gets the bad mojo off the crystal. Your crystals are constantly trying to make the world a better place.
  • Is a crystal bad in the wrong hands? Yes, there might be harm to the crystal and the person too.
  • Can a crystal actually make my anxiety worse, or is it more about your intent with the crystal you're using? Sometimes certain crystals don't agree with you. Moldavite makes me so bad, restless, anxious, sweaty and hyperventilated. So, ya, depending on the malefic planets on your zodiac signs, some stones can worsen your anxiety while some others can cure it!
