After cleansing your crystal, it is ready to work with you! Don’t worry if it hasn’t been charged by the sun or the moon. The most important part is cleaning it with salt. You will find the right time to charge it, use your intuition.
When you are ready to work and meet your crystal, meditation is a great way. Sit quietly and roll it between both of your hands to “wake it up”.
Then hold it in one or both hands whatever feels right and comfortable for you.
Then concentrate on it and feel it. Does it have energy? Do you see a color in your mind’s eye? Does your hand pulse when you hold it?
Ask it questions listen for the subtle answers. This may take some time if you are new to this; it will be rewarding and will happen when you are truly ready to hear and feel its subtle energy.
