PROJECTIVE/RECEPTIVE HANDS EXERCISE
For the purpose of this exercise, let’s work with rose quartz. Rose Quartz contains the energy of unconditional love, tranquility and peace. If you don’t have Rose Quartz available, use clear quartz. If that is not available, find or draw a picture of Rose Quartz. You will need to be able to hold this picture in your hand.
As you begin to work with your crystals, you will want to bring their energy into yourself and your surroundings. One way to do this is by handling them. We each have a projective hand and a receptive hand. Your projective hand is the hand you use to send energy out into the world. For many people, the hand that you write with is your projective hand. This may or not be true for you. Only you will be able to decide that. Your receptive hand is the hand you use to bring energy into yourself.
Take the crystal into your projective hand. Feel the way the energy flows out of your hand and into your surrounding area. Sit quietly and notice the way the room seems to calm down and become more tranquil. Notice that any feelings of anger or hostility in the room seem to dissipate. Feel the unconditional love and peace as it spreads from you and into your environment.
Now take the crystal into your receptive hand. Feel the way the energy flows into your being. Sit quietly and notice the way that you seem to become more calm and tranquil. Notice that any feelings of anger and hostility within you seem to dissipate. Feel the unconditional love and peace as it moves through you into your very core.
Put your hands together and hold the crystal between both of them. Notice the balance that begins to develop both inside and outside of you. Sit quietly and enjoy the balance of unconditional love and peace as it flows from you into your environment and from your environment back to into you.
When you understand the properties of specific crystals, using this exercise, you will be able to move the energy of that crystal into yourself, into your environment and into internal and external balance through the powerful touch of your hands.
Use this exercise with each of your crystals. This is one of the core exercises we teach our students for developing their own Crystal Intuition. This exercise presents you with intimate knowledge as you understand the conversation you are having with the crystal you are holding.
As a Crystal Intuitive, your hands become open energy centers. As you grow in your crystal work, you will be able to know the crystal’s energy without direct contact. You will be able to pass your hand over the crystal and feel its energy.
