How to Use Crystals to Enhance Your Day-to-Day Life

Crystals are a fantastic tool to use every day. However, when you’re new to using crystals, it can be hard to know where to get started or what to do when you bring them home. Don’t worry! I’m here to clear up some of that confusion for you. 

Before we get started, it’s important to remember that crystals are a tool, not a solution. They work best by helping you focus on what you desire and enhancing any efforts you put toward your goals.  

Cleanse Your Crystals

The first thing you should do is cleanse your gemstones as soon as you bring them home. Chances are that your gems have traveled far and wide to get to you. This means they’ve passed through many hands and locations picking up different energies along the way. You don’t want your gemstones to have everyone else’s energy on them! 

There are plenty of ways to cleanse your crystals. You can leave them out on the full moon, pass them through the smoke of your favorite incense, or even leave them in a bowl of sand or rice can help get rid of any energy that’s stuck to them. Also, remember to cleanse them every once in a while. This keeps them happy and working how you want them to.

Set Your Intention 

Now that you’ve cleansed your crystals, it’s time to set an intention! It’s helpful to research the type of crystal you have before you complete this step. Doing so will help you learn about the crystal you have and how it can help you. 

The intention you set can be anything from a general feeling to a very specific desire and can help both you and your stone focus on the goal you have in mind. For example, if you pick up rose quartz for love, what kind of love are you trying to attract? Self-love? Healing love between you and a family member? Or are you trying to find your one true love? Understanding why you’ve picked up those crystals and what you want to use them for can be extraordinarily helpful when you work with them. 

Find Balance in Other Areas of Your Life with crystals

Once you’ve programmed your crystals, you can decide where to keep them so they can work their magic. It’s good to keep your crystals in a place where you can see them to remind you of the intention you’ve set. 

For example, some people carry their stones in their bags or pockets. This is especially helpful if you’re trying to manifest more wealth. Keeping your crystal next to your bed or under your pillow can help with sleep and enhancing dreams. If you’re trying to find calm and peace at work, keep your stone on your desk. Wearing specific stones as jewelry can help ease the body as well. Think about where your crystal will be the most useful to you and place it in that area.  

Use crystals to cleanse your space and yourself

Crystals do a great job of helping to remove negative energies from you and your space. Simply laying down and placing a crystal on your heart or forehead can work wonders for releasing any energies that aren’t serving you at the moment. 


Placing crystals around your home is a great way to keep the vibes of your space immaculate. For example, you can place a small stone in every window creating a crystal grid. Depending on the intention you set, this grid can attract or release energies adding power to your manifestations. Larger gemstones also make beautiful natural art pieces, adding to décor and keeping the energy clear. 

Crystals are an amazing tool for manifesting and healing. With a few simple steps, you can get to work using your new gemstones to create the life you desire.
