I love crystals and pass many onto friends when I get the call to do so.
My little kitchen withc sits among some of the crystals I like to carry about with me. I usually have a bagful and find children are drawn to Tigerseye. I know many kids love Amethyst, (who doesn't??!!) but they usually go straight for the Tigerseyes in my collections. I let them hold them in First Aid it usually soothes them a little.
Ive also helped parents with childrens night terrors by getting them to leave an Amethyst next to the childs bed...other crystals help too. Oils in the vincitiy as well.
Also I get them to help the kids 'practise kicking the nasty dreams butts...like ninjas'...Lucid dreaming. It doesn't often fail thank god. I hate to see kids go through night terrors. Dream catchers too!!!!!!--Explain why to the child if they can understand. Empower them.
I need some positive energy in my house...get out the negativity. What crystals would be for placing around the house for this???
This is all great information. I am looking to get out emotional negativity in my house...there's a lot of anger going on right now. I have done a house cleansing but would like to use the power or crystals, also...try to bring a bit of peace in the house. Again...great info and I will do some more reading...see what I can find for crystals. :) Any information is always greatly appreciated...I'm still learning and don't know a whole lot. :):)

There is also a "Gold Elixir" for charging objects. It is easy to make. You just take an old piece of gold jewelry (harder ot find in the US than Europe where 24K is easier to find as opposed to our 14K-18K gold) like a single earring that has lost it's mate, a tie tack, something gold and heat it to glowing while holding it with long tweezers, needle-nosed pliers, whatever. Then, being careful to immerse only the gold, put the glowing metal into a bath of spring, rain, or other water of your choice. The gold will loose molecules into the water and stay in perpetual suspension since the ratio of gold to water is so minute. Then you add the crystal or stone of your choice. It is suggested that this be done with herbal infusions/decoctions as well for specific purposes. this is said to be a super-charger.
Hmm, I wonder how that would work with Sterling Silver? I know that silver is not as inert as gold is but still, it is an interesting thought.

With a little nitrous oxide mixed in? (laughing gas)
Yes, absolutely, Hedgewitch! I used water exposed to the Full Moon in Scorpio (water element) for C&P of my homemade black scrying Mirror, too. Me too, I also like ot use a crystal or combination of crystals for keeping the water energized and clear. Of course, the stone first needs to be purified and energized but you already know that, I'm sure.
My favorite use of crystals/stones is in threes:
1) draw negativity away from object and other stones and store it for cleansing- Black Tourmaline
2) purification (only one I know of that turns negative energy into positive-Amber
3) energize- several will do but I have my Air Element favorites
I also like Amethyst for raising the quality of the vibrations to a more subtle level if that is called for. There are so many stones but not being wealthy, I don't keep many different stones on hand. Clear quartz is of course one that is always around the house, all my Tarot decks that have found their way to me over the years (well the ones i have not passed on to other momentarily more needy witches) are stored with one in them for example. I have a friend who is dedicated to sending me stones and crystals of various sorts. I do have a survey of different stones/crystals but that is only because I have a friend dedicated to sending them to me. LOL, she thinks I need more exposure to various crystals and makes me study them but mostly I use my favorites.
Hedgewitch, have you ever used shaved Rosewood from trimmings taken from rose bushes? I like to burn rosewood shavings, cedar shavings, juniper shavings and pine shavings, and such mixed with herbs on charcoals depending on the intention. It's cheaper than incense sticks and I am definitely cheap! :)
Oh, yeah, I forgot to say that for the third crystal, I prefer one of the quartz family. because of quartz's great ability to retain energy/information. I'm not just talking about clear quartz, rutilated quartz, smoky quartz, etc, but also amethyst, citrine, Chrysoprase, Ametrine and a host of others.
hi, i'm new here ~ in just this one post there is so much information/knowledge to learn from ~ thank you
