☽ How to Use
Cleanse your Dragon Bloodstone crystal using any of the following methods:
Hold your Dragon Bloodstone under running water and ask the Universe to remove all negativity from this crystal. Alternatively, leave your crystal to sit bowl of water for several minutes. If you are near to a natural running river, Dragon Bloodstone stones can be placed in an organza bag and left for a short time in the running water. Running water can also energise as well as cleanse the stones at the same time.
Half-fill a glass bowl with sea salt (or cooking salt) and place your crystal directly into the salt. Either bury them into the dry salt or leave them on the surface. They should be left in the salt for several hours, overnight or for several days. Then thoroughly rinse the crystal under cool running water to remove any remaining salt. Don't forget to throw away the salt after use - Never re-use as it will have absorbed negative and unwanted energies.
Another salt method is to leave your crystals in a sea salt/water mixture, as per the water method.
Hold a burning sage smudging stick near the Dragon Bloodstone crystal so that the smoke fills the air around it. You can also hold your crystal in and near the smoke. Ask for cleansing, protection or dedicating love to your crystal. Discover our range of smudge sticks.
Place the Dragon Bloodstone crystal directly on top of a piece of Selenite for around 6 hours (or as long as you feel guided to leave them). Our powerful Selenite Cleansing Sticks are perfect for this purpose.
Sound Healing allows a single pitch or tone to wash over an area, bringing it into the same vibration as the tone. Long trusted by the ancients, singing bowls or Tingsha cymbals are handcrafted to sacred tones and are the ultimate sound healing tool. Simply hold the sound close to the crystal for a few minutes minutes. Ideal for cleansing multiply crystals at once or very large or delicate stones that are not easy to move. See our collection of Sound Healing tools here.
Crystals can replay any sort of vibration that you bestow upon it, simply using your intention. Your Intentions emit a specific frequency of vibration of which crystals have the ability to store and emit. You can program your Dragon Bloodstone crystal to replay with a particular energy, belief or new paradigm that you are trying to cultivate or to assist with specific projects and tasks.
Follow these steps to charge your Dragon Bloodstone:
- Determine what you need assistance with and the energy that you would like your crystal to emit.
- Ask your crystal if it is willing to partner. You will feel a clear yes, excitement even if the answer is affirmative. A neutral feeling is also a yes. No will usually feel like a strong resistance and is easiest to sense.
- Hold your crystal to your heart and then to your third eye. With clear intent, imagine the task projected into the crystal. Extend the crystal in front of you to the point where you can envision the crystal, your heart and your third eye linking to form a triangle and lock in the purpose.
- State aloud the “program” and thank the crystal for being a willing transmitter of this frequency.
Your charged crystal is now ready for use! Keep it close or hold it when you would like to amplify the program. Remember, the magic and power is within you, crystals are a wonderful tool to magnify our natural, metaphysical abilities.
