How to Use These Gardening Crystals
Obtaining the crystals is step one, after which you will be ready to get gardening and incorporate some crystals into your practice.
There are several ways to involve crystals with plants and gardening. Some crystals require specific placement while others can be a benefit in any spot.
A Sacred Garden
Many of us use one space for several different functions and this can actually negatively affect our mental wellbeing. In an ideal situation, we would all have proper places to eat, sleep, work, play, and relax, but that just isn’t practical for most of us.
Create a sacred garden where you can obtain the supporting and positive energies form the crystals and plants. Using crystals for gardening really just requires you to have a quiet, green space where you can meditate or pray.
Hold your crystals while sitting in your garden or near your plants. Say an affirmation prayer in order to program your stones to ensure they are ready to work for your garden.
Water Your Garden With A Crystal Elixir
Crystal concoctions are simple recipes that involve a pitcher, crystals, and water. The indirect method for making a crystal elixir is recommended, especially if you are not sure if the crystals can be toxic or not.
Place clean stones into an empty jar, then place that jar into a pitcher of water. Allow the water to sit in either the moon or sunlight to charge and enhance the crystals energies.
After about 24 hours, place this elixir into a different glass or watering can and use it to water your plants.
Create A Crystal Garden Grid
A crystal grid is a geometric pattern that you can arrange your stones in. This arrangement activates the crystals by connecting lines of light between each stone.
When you set up your crystal grid, be sure to set your intentions to help the stones focus their vibrations.
With a nearly endless list of crystals to choose from, creating a crystal garden can seem a little complex. Most crystals come packed with amazing healing properties.
Think of the benefits you would like to achieve from using crystals for gardening. Just remember that colored Quartz will fade if left in the sun too long, so it’s best to bury it to ensure its safety.
Try different combinations of crystals in your garden, set your intentions, and watch as the healing energies captivate your green friends!
