How to Use Crystals with Your Card Deck
If you’ve tuned into Heather’s Weekly Crystal Card Readings on Instagram, you’ll know that one of the most powerful aspects of the Daily Crystal Inspiration oracle deck is that you don’t need the physical stones to access their powerful healing energy. But if you do have crystals already, incorporating them into your crystal card readings using the crystal card deck can take your healing practice to another level. Today, we’re sharing how to use crystals with your Daily Crystal Inspiration deck to connect with the message of the cards and the crystals on a deeper level.
How To Incorporate Crystals Into Your Card Reading
There are a few different ways you can add crystals into the mix. The first and foremost for anyone who has the deck is to charge and clear your deck using Clear Quartz. I recommend you do this when you first receive it and before each use, as the Clear Quartz magnifies the power of the deck and helps you to interpret the messages with clarity. For more details on how to charge and clear your deck, refer to the introduction of your guidebook!
Here are some of my other favorite ways to use crystals with your deck:
Before Your Reading
Although you typically start with an oracle deck, this is a fun way to change things up. Instead of opening your deck, lay the crystals in front of you and let your intuition guide you to a crystal that catches your eye. Then open your Daily Crystal Inspiration deck and find the card associated with the crystal to receive the message that the stone was communicating to you.
During Your Reading
This is helpful for anyone who could use a little extra help staying present during the reading, as the stones can help to ground your energy and enhance your intuition to strengthen the accuracy and power of your reading. Simply hold a crystal that calms, centers, and opens you up to receiving the messages of the crystal cards as you draw your cards.
After Your Reading
This is a powerful way to add a tangible component to the card’s message! After you’ve completed a 1-card or 3-card daily draw, find the crystal or crystals to match the cards and carry them with you throughout the day as an embodiment of the message and energy you received from your crystal cards.
