Choosing your crystal:
Very often, the crystals you choose will be relevant to your life in the present moment.
You may choose your crystal by the way it looks or an intuitive feeling. They are all correct ways and it tends to make sense when the healing and transformable powers are activated.
The energy of the crystals can work for however long it is needed in your life. Sometimes it comes in stages and cycles or when you are ready to connect with them regularly.
How to care for your crystal waistbeads:
You can wear your waistbeads continuously. If you wish to remove them when you shower, you can do so. And put them back on. Go with your intuition.
To make the most of your crystal’s energy and the transformable power of your crystal waistbeads, it is always advisable to cleanse and set your intentions regularly.
An affirmation for your crystals will come with your waistbeads for you to activate them. If you have your own affirmation and wish to use it, please do so.
If you would like to practise further healing, you can remove and place them on its assigned chakra – crown, head, heart, etc. and most the full healing power with practise and intention. Alternatively, you can place by your bedside table. If you just love to adorn these crystals with no intentions, that is also okay. Enjoy their beauty.
How often should I cleanse my jewellery?
I recommend cleansing your jewellery when it begins to feel heavy or. As a general guideline, cleanse your jewellery every moon cycle to keep your crystals at their highest vibration possible.
How do I cleanse my crystals waistbeads?
When you receive your crystal waistbeads they will already be cleansed and charged. You can then activate them.
If you wish to do the whole cleansing process again, that is fine.
Methods to cleanse: running water, salt water, smudging, visualization, sand/earth, sunlight/moonlight, candle flame.
Methods to charge: moonlight, sunlight, quartz crystal, druse quartz, white light.
Some crystals do not like certain methods of cleansing or charging.
Amethyst, Citrine, Aventurine, Rose quartz, Smokey quartz, Aquamarine and Fluorite will lose the colour if placed in direct sunlight regularly and for long periods of time. To avoid this, you can charge them away from direct sunlight.
Once cleansed and charged you may activate your crystal waistbeads with your affirmation.

How to measure your for your waistbeads:
You can wear your waistbead in two places:
1. Around you waist across your navel. Place a flexible measuring tape across this area make sure it is not tight and there is a little room, roughly an inch.
2. Around you too hip, just over where your skirt/trousers would be. Again, it should not be tight the tape cannot move. Just give a little room.
Remember to consider we expand when we eat or during our cycle.
*Disclaimer – Using crystals are not a replacement for medical or physical treatments. They are a good complement to use alongside.
