5 ways to try crystal healing with kids

Keep the little ones amused this summer holiday with the power of Ashley Leavy’s gemstone therapy

Teaching kids about crystal energy can nurture their connection with crystal energy, but how can you explain some of the difficult concepts of healing and energy to a young mind? Below are some simple ways to explain crystal healing to the children in your life, encouraging their minds to grow spiritually. They’ll be so much calmer and more tuned in after these activities, you won’t even recognise them – and so will you!

1 Feel the amplification

Sit where you are right now and think about things that make you happy. Now, pick up your crystal and think about your happy thought again. Do you feel even happier when you’re holding the crystal? This is because the crystal is amplifying your happy feeling!

2 Charge yourself up

Crystals can hold energy for us to use later on when we need it. This stored energy will stay inside of the crystal until you want to use it. Place your crystal on your windowsill where it will be in the light from the moon or the sun. Leave the crystal there to charge. The next day, pick up the crystal and see if you can feel the energy it has stored from the sun or the moon. How do you feel? Can you feel the energy the crystal has shared with you?

3 Transfer energy to others

Hold a Quartz crystal point on your forehead with the point sticking straight out from your body like a unicorn horn. Think about love and joy and fill your heart with happy thoughts. Try to send these thoughts to someone near you and see if they can feel them!

4 Listen to your crystals’ stories

Hold your crystal in your hands. Where do you feel the energy in your body? Do you feel hot or cold? Do you feel calm? Or happy? Now hold your crystal up to your forehead. Imagine that the crystal is telling you a story. What do you see and hear? How does the crystal make you feel?

5 Meditate

Hold your crystal in your hands or over your heart. Imagine your crystal growing bigger and bigger until it is as big as a house. Imagine a tiny doorway that you crawl through until you are inside of your crystal house.
Look around at the inside of your crystal. What do you see? What colour is your crystal house? Imagine feeling the floor and the walls. How do they feel? Listen very carefully. What do you hear inside of your crystal? Do you hear any sounds at all? Do you hear your favourite music? What does your crystal house smell like? Does it smell like flowers or freshly-baked cookies? Imagine a big comfy chair inside of your crystal house. Sit on the chair and have some quiet time inside of your crystal house. Feel the peaceful energy all around you. The longer you sit inside of your crystal, the happier you become. When you are very calm and happy, imagine crawling back through the door of your crystal house and back into where you are sitting right now.
