Frequently asked questions
What is Focused Intention?
Focused Intention starts with having a very clear vision of a goal or desire one would like to attain within a certain time period. Then setting time aside to make a daily ritual of activating that vision. There are many ways to be creative with a focused intention ritual. It could be programming a crystal with the intention, then carrying or wearing it as a reminder, placing it in a crystal grid, or displaying it in a particular location. Or one could include the goal during daily meditation practice. Some people create vision boards. The focused intention ritual helps to inspire, and energize the physical action. It is equally important to take the physical steps required for manifestation because intention without action is just wishful thinking.

What is Reiki?
The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese ideograms “Rei” (spiritual wisdom) and “Ki” (life force). Reiki is an energy force in all living things, that also flows through inanimate objects.
When one becomes attuned to Reiki through a Reiki master, they can channel and direct this life force energy into people, places or things. There are many reasons why one would would benefit from Reiki such as: space clearing, de-stressing, relaxation, crystal charging, chakra balancing, activating desired energies, or assistance in healing. Over 800 hospitals across the U.S. and many more worldwide offer Reiki because it enhances all forms of medical treatment increasing recovery rates.

Oh no! My crystal broke...what do I do?
No worries. Crystals may break or crack for many reasons, each giving us a lesson. Maybe it was due to a simple accident, which causes one to take a look at possibly slowing down in life, or being more attentive. Recall what you were doing, or what were your thoughts at the time the crystal broke. The answer may surprise you.
Sometimes crystals absorb so much energy that they become overwhelmed with stress fractures, which means it's time to give your crystal (and yourself) some much needed TLC.
Or crystals want to break off and become multiples..each carrying their own energy.
In all these instances a good cleansing and grounding can revitalize and/or re-purpose your crystal. Don't know how to cleanse your crystal? Search here for a simple technique, or come visit Enchanted Treasures for a crystal cleansing.
How do I cleanse my crystal?
There are many techniques to cleanse crystals. The easiest, and most important way to keep your rocks and crystals "cleansed" is to have a relationship with them. Check in with them, tell them they are doing a good job performing the intention you programmed into them. Express gratitude. Tell them you love them. Love cleanses everything!
Do you have a crystal, rock or mineral? Some are lower on the mohs scale (hardness) and may break down in liquid, so you wouldn't want to expose to water. How can you tell? If it feels chalky or flaky = no water.
-You can hold your solid rock or crystal under cold flowing water to cleanse. Most crystals are UV sensitive and color may fade from sunlight, so I do not recommend using sunlight to cleanse. Actually, crystals don't crave sunlight. Makes sense since they lived in the dark earth for millions of years. No sun.
-Smudge with a few passes of Sage or Palo Santo smoke. Don’t want to burn sage? You can rub the sage leaves onto your crystal, or use essential oil fragrance in a diffuser running the crystal through the mist.
-Direct some sort of “tone” with a sound vibration around your crystal. My personal fave is Tingshas, but you can use a signing bowl, bell, or gently tapping a wine glass. Do you play a music instrument? Play to your crystals, they love music!
-Give your crystals or rocks a "vacation" by placing into a pot of dirt, or in your garden. They love re-connecting with mother earth!
There are crystals/minerals that are self-cleansing such as Citrine or Selenite, that can also help with cleansing/charging others. I believe everything deserves some TLC, so I also cleanse my citrine and selenite.
Some suggest to cleanse rocks and crystals with salt. I never do, as they told me it "burns" them. You decide.
Remember to also cleanse/re-charge your jewelry occassionally too.
As the same idea with Tarot cards, you don’t want others to “play” with or over-handle your crystals. This will allow their energy to remain connected to you.
