What's a Gem Elixir and how can it help?
A gem elixir is a potent form of vibrational medicine; it is water that has been infused with the healing vibrations of crystals. Crystals carry strong energy, which can be imprinted into other substances. This is similar to the way that a room where you place a vase of flowers will take on the smell of the flowers. Same idea. We are taking the vibrations from a crystal, and adding them to the water.
Now, the water carries the healing energy, and can be used in many ways:

Step One: Choose your Crystals
This step is important, because whatever crystals you put in, bring the energy you are going to get out. There are two approaches, and the first is the simplest and my personal favorite: use your intuition!
I wrote a whole article about it right here, but basically, I believe you subconsciously already know what is best for you, and can choose that, if you trust yourself. So go to a crystal shop and pick out something new--it doesn't have to be expensive--or choose from your existing collection.
But don't neglect to do your homework! Some crystals are toxic, and should never, ever be put in something you intend to drink. I mean, not unless you want to die a horrible death, and I'm going to assume you don't.
Check this resource here for a list of unsafe crystals from Hibiscus Moon. She's the fun and sparkly teacher that I got my crystal healer certification from, and has a lot of really helpful information on her website.
Oh, speaking of homework, this is the other way that you can choose crystals to use. There are many wonderful books that I use for information on crystals, or find great intuitive advice here, or very thorough information here! It's possible to google for a specific need you have, too. For example, if you are looking for a crystal for healing heartbreak, you can google that, and lots of ideas will pop up.
Or reach out to me in the comments here or directly, and I'll be happy to offer my personal opinion on what crystals would be a good fit for your personal needs. I'll discuss some recommendations for specific needs later in this tutorial, too!
Basically, we are baking unicorns.
Step Two: Assemble your Supplies
This is almost like baking a cake. We chose our recipe, now we will assemble our ingredients, and then next we will bake our cake! Except we are baking with magical vibrations, and the ingredients are gorgeous sparkly crystals! Basically, we are baking unicorns.
Here we go! You will need:
bless the heck out of the gem elixir, and call on Spirit to infuse it with divine healing light.
Step Three: Combine Crystals with Water, Add Light and Intention
So now we are ready to put our crystal cake in the oven...hee hee...I mean, add our crystals into our water and infuse them with light. To make sure everything has the highest vibrations possible, we are gonna clean everything first, though...I mean, you already physically cleaned everything, right?
But we also need to energetically clean the supplies, in particular the crystals. There are several ways you can address this, but my personal favorite is smudging. I recommend you smudge the heck out of the crystals, the space you are using, the other supplies, and hey, yourself while you are at it. Why not? I promise you'll feel lighter!
Ok, all clear and clean? Now combine the crystals and the water in your glass jar, and bring them to your chosen space in the light. The most potent times for light infusing are at midday, between 11 am and 3 pm roughly. Or, for moonlight, at the full moon and the three days leading up to it.
You can do this as simply or as ceremoniously as you like. Myself, I like to bless the heck out of the gem elixir, and call on Spirit to infuse it with divine healing light. I am sure the additional prayer energy makes it that much stronger. Do what feels comfortable to you.
Then leave it to infuse for at least several hours, or up to three days. The sun and/or moon are doing the work for you, just like when you leave your cake in the oven to bake. Whoo!

Step Four: Bottle your Magical Gem Elixir
This is a fun step. I always think of formula 86 from the Witches, really a very disturbing movie from my childhood, although of course that's an evil potion. But, that bottle.
All that's left to do is strain the crystals out of the water, and then pour your freshly made gem elixir into bottles.
Top with vodka in a ratio of one part vodka to two parts water to preserve the elixir. This will keep it fresh for a very long time!

So much love,
The energy has been intense lately...I think a lot of people are feeling it. During times of intense energy, the most important thing is staying in your center...when you are in your center, you feel balanced. There's a calm point amidst the chaos that you can touch...
Crystals can be a helpful ally to find and maintain balance. There are two approaches to this. The first one is to simply use crystals that are known for their properties of balancing energy. A wonderful one to use is KYANITE. I consider kyanite an essential to have around. If you are feeling unbalanced, hold it in your hand and just breathe. Or, do a meditation with it...lie down, place it where you feel drawn to on your body, listen to some relaxing music or binaural beats....and let your energy align with the calming crystal vibrations.
The other approach is to do some self-investigation...and find out what pulls you out of your center. For me, it is stress. Some people might get ungrounded...or angry...or feel lonely. Well, there is a crystal for that! Look it up, see what you come up with...and then use that crystal to help bring that aspect of your life into balance.
Kyanite comes in many lovely colors, such as blue, black, green, orange, and even clear. Match each color to a chakra for extra balance. Kyanite is said to instantly balance and align all of the chakras...when I hold it, I feel a deep balancing and centering of my energy.
It is easy to buy a beautiful piece of this special stone, and keep it in your pocket, in your purse, on your desk, or on your nightstand, so that the energy stays in your field as long as possible...giving it more time to bring balance. Some of the crystals are quite gemmy, although they are more rare to find in jewelry because of their structure. The crystals form in long blades, made of many long layers, that often appear stacked, like sheets of paper in a book.
I just love kyanite! It's so beautiful, and balancing, too. <3
Love and crystals,
Choosing a crystal doesn't have to be challenging. The secret is to let go of your thoughts, and let the crystal that will most benefit you, call out to you.
Can't resist these gemmy kyanite blades? Me neither! And they are great for bringing balance...just what I need in my life!
Let the crystals decide.
What do I mean by this? I mean, forget about what you read in a book, or an online article. Forget what I'm telling you right now. Because, there is no wrong way to choose a crystal.
Your intuition will guide you.
Say you are walking on the beach, and you glance down, and there are rocks and shells scattered all along the shore. Yet there is one rock, one lovely white rock, gleaming in the tide, and your hand is drawn straight to it. You pick it up, and slip it in your pocket, its weight feels comforting against your thigh. When you get home, you put the rock on the table, and you pull out your crystal guide. You discover that, lo and behold, this rock is known for carrying exactly the kind of healing energy you need right now! How did you know? You couldn't have known. And yet, magically, you did know.
Perhaps it was the Law of Attraction. Perhaps it was fate. Maybe the crystal called to you because it knew it could help?
Do you need to know how it works? Because, it does work. Like a magnet, you will be drawn to the crystal you need to work with most. Go into a store...see what catches your eye. See what crystal you pick up, and do not want to set down again. And...go with it! Take it home.
This method sounds so simple, but it works. Time and again, I have selected the perfect crystal this way...
Good luck! And, happy crystal hunting! Let me know if this method of crystal choosing is helpful to you, or if you have any tips you'd like to share! :)
