Clearing our energetic centers and aura may be just what we need with some restorative crystal healing. By creating the space and following our intuition we can give back and create this experience at home for ourselves.

Smudging the room, lighting candles, setting an altar, positioning pictures of your guides may all be a part of your process. Once you are ready, get comfortable and surround your self with the crystal pieces you have chosen for this specific healing or with your crystal selection and allow yourself to be guided by your intuition and what you feel drawn to.
Clarify and set your intention for the healing session. Affirm this intention to ground and commit it to reality and the physical plane eg
“I am safe and secure. I am open to new opportunities. I transmute all undesired energies. I am aligned with the Earth’s heart center, my heart center, and universes’s heart center. I am ready to receive the maximum healing and expansion for the greatest good of all. Any energies not of the highest light and love are instantly transmuted. Any excess energies are gifted to the earth for healing.”
Place your crystals one at a time with mindfulness and an affirmation for each one from your feet upwards, with the last crystals resting in your hands.
Double terminator crystals in Crystals Healing
Double terminated crystals are crystal shafts that have points on both ends of the crystal. The points assist direct and channel energy pathways to increase the flow of energy in both directions. During crystal healing, these crystals can be placed along energy channels to clear and increase the flow of energy. Often energy in the legs and arms can become stagnant or stuck by placing a double terminator on a thigh above a problematic knee that may help increase energy to the knee area.
Single pointed terminator crystals can be used to direct energy in one direction. The point is often used by crystal healing practitioners to stimulate energy centers and encourage the movement of energy in a clockwise direction to open the flow and an anticlockwise direction to increase the receiving of energy and bring it into an area.
Generator crystals have a flat base that they stand on and continue to a single point. When standing, generators are great to place during crystals healing between the feet, and at the soul and earth star chakras as they attract and bring in energy.
They can also be used to direct energy by practitioners along the energy channels or in specific directions.

Hugging a tree or holding heavy stones in your hands can also assist in grounding excess energies and gifting them to the earth for healing.
