As you become more familiar with crystals and their individual properties, you may want to start working with multiple crystals to "amp up" their power and harness more of their energy.
Much like a crystal grid uses multiple crystals in specific combinations, crystal pairing uses two or more crystals to achieve targeted crystal healing energy.
Pairing crystals for intention crystal work
Ok, first off lets look at crystal pairs when setting intentions. When working with specific intentions it is important to allow the crystals time to work their magic; you need to allow at least a week of intentional work before you start to notice a change. When you work with two crystals the energy you need is amplified and so you may notice the effects more quickly.
Maybe you have been told about a last minute meeting and need a confidence booster, this is when pairing crystals comes into play...
Motivation & Endurance
Gives you courage to reach your goals
Speak truth with clarity
Promotes self-confidence, creativity and positive conversations
Whilst in your sacred space, speak your intention, in this case "I am confident and articulate" repeat this as long as you feel necessary; really focus on the words and envision your intention being true. When you feel like the universe has heard your message, tap your lapis lazuli & carnelian 3 times. This affirms your intention.
Carrying the stones with you is beneficial, periodically revisit your intention. Find a quiet space to be still and feel the crystal energise your aura with the confidence you are inviting in.
Pairing crystals for chakra healing
As an example here lets imagine a blocked heart chakra. The heart chakra is responsible for love and connection, a healthy heart chakra allows you to see everything from a place of love and kindness, allowing you to live a happy and free life.
Symptoms of a blockage in this chakra are:- Being suspicious of others, particularly in friendships & romantic relationships- Being overly critical towards yourself & others- Unable to give or receive freely- Shyness & Loneliness
When it comes to chakra healing with crystals, I advise using a crystal associated with the chakra you are working with which has properties targeted to the specific area you are wanting to balance. With the heart chakra, green crystals tend to be the most effective healing stones.
As an example, lets say, you are experiencing an extreme lack of trust towards other people, in particular, your significant other. This may be due to you holding on to negative attachments from past relationships where you may have been hurt.
Influences self love
Calms, heals and balances the aura
When you are using crystals to balance the chakras follow these simple steps:
1. create a calm and comfortable space
2. lay down
3. place the crystals you are using over the chakra you are working with
4. visualise the energy of the crystal. In our example, we are using green tourmaline; imagine a green light shining from the crystal into your heart chakra and filling your aura with its light
5. take deep breaths and imagine the purifying energy of the stone entering your body, washing away negative attachments and filling you with love and light
Pairing crystals in the homeWhen you are placing crystals into your home, you need to think about the type of energy you are wanting to amplify. Do you have trouble communicating with loved ones? Is there high anxiety or tension? Stroppy teenagers? Or you may want to keep it simple and promote love and happiness.
My personal favourites for my home are smokey quartz and amethyst. Both these crystals are high vibration and both have many important healing properties which everyone can benefit from.
Neutralises and balances energy
A natural detoxifier
Promotes self esteem, personal pride and group activities
Enhances the joy of living
Opens the mind to learning and perception
Earth energy, grounding and stabilising
Relieves pain and tension
Blocks electromagnetic stresses
Enhances motivation and memory
Overcome addictions and bad habits
The energies of these two powerhouse crystals combine beautifully, clearing and then protecting the environment around them. Together they bring out joy, strengthen relationships, promote calm and clear communication, strengthen trust and offer relief from anxiety, depression and addictions.
Smokey quartz allows you to "let go" of negative attachments and amethyst will attract positivity, making this crystal pairing very beneficial in the home, especially where there may be trauma to overcome, teenagers to bring back to centre or relationships which need to be strengthened.
I'd love to hear from you guys! Leave me a comment or send me a message, what are your favourite crystal pairings?
As always, if you need help to find your perfect crystal combination, I am more than happy to help, get in touch!
Be careful not to pair crystals with clashing energies as this will cancel out their power and can result in unwanted side effects! Be aware of the power of each crystal, as some energy can be overwhelming dependant on your birth chart or environment in which the crystals are placed. If you are unsure of a combination you are working with, leave a comment below and I will be happy to help!
