Crystals 101

Collapsible content


Crystals are powerful, energy-filled minerals that interact with our own energy in a positive way. Crystal healing has been known to offer spiritual, mental and physical healing and aid. The healing powers of crystals can be activated by having them close to you- either by carrying them around, wearing them, or placing them around the home and workspace. Crystals work by interacting with your energy fields and absorbing and channeling your aura's energy. Since each crystal has its own unique vibe, they are used for a variety of things, for improving mental wellness and much more!


Cleanse your crystals with a variety of methods- from submerging them in natural waters like collected rainwater, a lake, or a stream to salt- or DIY saltwater baths. If you live near the beach, you can even immerse your stones in the ocean! Additionally, you can use sunlight and moonlight - just be careful not to expose light-sensitive stones, like citrine and amethyst, to the direct heat of the sun. And if you're feeling extra magical, sage smoke, chimes, bells, a tuning fork, and singing bowls can create a spiritual cleansing bath for your crystals. Finally, you can use another cleansing stone (like geodes, quartz, and selenite slabs) to help dispel negative vibes from your stones. How often should you cleans your crystals? The more you use a stone, the more energy it absorbs. Generally speaking, clear all your stones at least once a month, but do not wait for a designated time - simply go when it feels right.


Once you've cleansed your crystal, it's time to link it up with your energy. Make it happen like this:

♦ Start by breathing deeply and solidifying your roots.

♦ Then, either aloud or in your head, set an intention and ask your crystal for help.

♦ Spend a couple of minutes (or however long it takes) quieting your mind and concentrating on your intention.

♦ Conclude with a thank-you to your crystal.

NANCY C. WILLIAMS - 1947 to 2023

Nancy was a passionate artist and animal enthusiast, and her art was so lifelike that you could have sworn it was alive. Born in Ohio, she attended Hathaway Brown School for Girls in 1969 and took home the arts award for the year. Later, she earned a BFA from the University of Colorado, and further studied at the Louisville School of Art. To nurture her creativity, Nancy rode around the US in her beloved motor home, looking for inspiration to capture on film. In 1988, she earned Best in Show at the North Carolina Wildlife Art Exhibition for her portrait of a goose. Her time in Alaska was especially noteworthy, as the state's Zoo commissioned her to paint a blue bear.
