Three Simple Ways to Attune a Crystal to your Energy

Crystals are easily my favorite tool to use in spiritual and metaphysical work. However, there’s more to it than just choosing a crystal (check out my guide for how to do that here) and jumping right in.

While this approach might work, you’ll have much better results if you bond with the crystal. In other words, you need to allow the crystal to become attuned to your energy. Their effects will be more potent than crystals that you haven’t formed a connection with.

I know that this sounds a little crazy, but I promise that it works! Think about it– crystals work by raising your vibrational energy. It only makes sense that the tool used to raise your energy is more effective if you have a connection with it.

This isn’t a super complicated process by any means. Below I’ve highlighted three easy ways to attune a crystal to your energy!

Before doing any of these things, however, I highly recommend cleansing your crystal. Just like a crystal can become connected with your energy, it can also pick up energy from the environment.

You never know what lingering negativity might be hanging around your new crystal, so a good spiritual cleanse is the best way to ensure you’re starting with a clean slate. I’ve written a full post on this here!

Carry the crystal with you

This is by far the easiest option. The more time you spend with the crystal, the more time there is to attune it to your energy.

If the stones are small enough you can carry them in your pockets. Otherwise, keeping them on your desk or near you as you go through your day works just as well!

I can frequently be found watching TV with some crystals in my lap. While I might get some funny looks from my family, it works!

In the same vein as carrying the crystal with you, sleeping with the crystal works to attune it to your energy. This is especially helpful if you need to be discreet.

Simply keep the crystal near your bed or slip it inside of your pillowcase while you sleep. This requires no effort on your part and is highly effective. We are at our least guarded while sleeping, so the crystal will be able to pick up your energy very easily.

Meditate with your crystal

Meditation is a great tool for so many things: relaxation, gratitude, and mindfulness (just to name a few).

It’s also an awesome way to help attune a crystal with your energy! Simply hold the crystal in your non-dominant (also known as your “receptive”) hand and begin to meditate.

You can choose to use meditation music or simply sit in silence, but the important thing is to reach a state of deep relaxation. Allow yourself to feel the energy that the crystal is giving off.

Really pay attention to what the crystal is telling you. Are you feeling at peace? Hopeful? Energized?

All of these things help you to form a bond with the crystal and allow you to have a greater understanding of how you might be able to use it in your practice.

If you aren’t super familiar with the practice of meditation, don’t be deterred from trying this method out! You don’t need to be a pro to reap the benefits of this method.

Charge your crystal with intent

The final tip I have for bonding with a crystal is to to charge it with your intent. All crystals have inherent properties.

Some common associations are:

  • Amethyst for psychic abilities
  • Black tourmaline for grounding
  • Rose quartz for love

While the stones themselves are innately able to enhance these properties in the user, assigning intent to them amplifies these abilities even more! What’s more, it’s actually a pretty simple thing to do.

Start off by knowing what you want to get from your crystal. How do you want to use it in your practice or what qualities do you want it to attract into your life? This is where knowing a bit about the properties of the crystal you chose comes in handy.

You can do some research about the stone, but also keep the feelings you get from the stone in mind when choosing an intent. Sometimes, your intuitive connection to a stone is far stronger than any predetermined properties it is supposed to have.

I’m going to use the example of rose quartz from before. It’s commonly known as the love stone and is perfect for anything related to love.

First, you’ll want to choose a mantra. It can be as simple as repeating the word “love” over and over or as complex as “this crystal will bring feelings of self-love into my life.” The wording is not nearly as important as you might think, so don’t get too caught up on it. It’s far more important that the words resonate with you.

Once you’ve chosen a mantra, hold the crystal in your dominant (also known as projective) hand. Take a few deep breaths and begin to repeat your mantra, either out loud or in your mind. As you do so, focus on channeling your intent from your energy center, down through your arm, and into the crystal.

If you don’t feel the energy flowing right away, don’t be discouraged! Energy work can be difficult at times. The most important thing is that there is intent behind what you’re doing. Simply repeating the words isn’t enough, you have to want and believe the words you are saying.

Once you feel that the crystal is charged, you’re finished!

I highly recommend grounding and centering both before and after this exercise, as channeling energy can take a lot out a person if you aren’t careful. I’ve written a handy post highlighting what grounding and centering are (as well as how to do them) that you can find here.

These three tips are all great ways to attune a crystal to your energy. Do you use a different method to connect with your crystals? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!

    1. Hi Joyce! I’m sorry to hear about one of your crystals being stolen. From my experience, nothing negative should happen to you. While crystals can be attuned to your energy, that energy cannot be used against you. It’s not so much that your energy is being imbued into the crystal as it is that your energy and the crystal’s energy are becoming harmonious. I hope that makes sense!
