There are several ways or techniques you can use to harness the power of crystals, the simplest being placing them in your environment. However, if you want to use crystals to heal specific problems, it’s better to employ more refined crystal healing techniques like those listed below.

~Trace the chosen crystal over your meridian lines and press the acupressure points with it. Admittedly it is a long and tedious procedure and requires basic acupressure knowledge, but healers claim it is extremely effective since it combines the benefits of both crystal therapy and acupressure.
~Imagine the tip of the crystal you are using is charged with energy. As you place the crystal over each chakra point, visualize in your mind’s eye that you are pulling out energy blocks stored therein with the charged point of the crystal in your hand.
~Have the recipient lie down and place the chosen crystals on each chakra point. You can either give a guided meditation session to the recipient by asking him to visualize the crystals healing his chakras or play soft music and ask him to focus on his breathing.
~Another good crystal healing technique is moving the crystal downward and inward to stimulate the different chakras. You can make this technique even more effective by using the power of intent; i.e., by focusing on exactly what you want the crystal to do or what ailment you want the crystal to heal.
~To practice crystal healing on yourself, you can try the simple technique of holding the crystal in your right hand with its point facing the earth and placing your left hand over your heart. Visualize all the negative energy in your body being channeled to the bottom of the earth through the crystal you hold in your hand.

Combining aura cleansing with crystal healing is also a good idea. To practice this technique you need to hold the crystal in your hand and move it around the recipient’s body to remove energy blocks. Needless to say, a little knowledge of aura cleansing or pranic healing is essential in order to practice this technique.

Another effective crystal healing technique involves making the figure eight with the crystal by looping all the chakras together.

Every crystal healing technique is powerful in its own right, so you may use the one with which you feel most comfortable. The best part of embracing crystal healing is there is technically no wrong way to use them. Enjoy the learning process and begin to see your life transform with these beautiful pieces of stone.
