3. Cleanse and Prepare the Crystals
When you acquire stones and crystals, you should clean them from any energy they may have picked during their journey.
There are several techniques to cleanse your crystals, the safest way for any type of crystal is brown rice.
Use a glass or plastic container to avoid any reaction between the crystal and the material of the container. Place the rice in the container, and put the crystals on top, leave overnight. Discard the rice in the morning. This will be sufficient to clear the crystals from any energy.
Once your stones and crystals are cleared you need to charge them to unlock all of their energy. To charge them, you can place them under sunlight, this will excite the atoms in the crystals.
If you plan to place the crystals directly onto the skin, warm up the crystals under the light of a lamp, or place a towel on a heater and put the crystals on top. This can also be useful if there is no sunlight when you are planning to do crystal healing.

5. Let the Crystals Do the Healing
During a crystal balancing session, be open to feeling and experience your emotions. Allow the crystals to heal your third eye chakra. Crystals can help you regain a sense of balance, focus and motivation in your life.
During your crystal healing session, you can choose to be in silence and observe the thoughts and feelings that come and go during this experience. You could also play a guided meditation, a mantra, affirmations or a binaural beat for your third eye chakra.
Let the crystals do their magic for 10 to 20 minutes (program a gentle alarm to wake you up in case you fall asleep or ask someone to let you know when the time is over).
Close your eyes and breathe deeply during your healing session. Connect to the crystals and the areas where they have been placed in your body. Be open to receiving their guidance, the more open you are, the easier it will be for you to connect with your inner wisdom.
6. Close Your Healing Session
Once you finish your third eye chakra healing session, clean your crystals from the energy they absorbed.
You can do this by using a glass bowl filled with a mix of citrine and hematite chips. Place the crystals you used during your session on the chips mixture and leave them overnight.
7. Reflect on Your Third Eye Crystal Healing Session
After each third eye chakra healing session, it may help you write down how you felt before, during and after the session.
When healing your third eye chakra, you may expect changes with:
- Your perception
- Your intuition
- Physical improvement in ears, eyes and sinus if you had a present issue
- Developing your psychic abilities and clairvoyance
- Sleeping better
For the third eye chakra balancing and healing, you would observe an increased awareness, higher concentration and a calmer attitude of trusting the process of life.
If you plan to work through all your chakras, it is a good idea to have a journal. You can divide the journal into 7 parts with the colours of the chakras. So that, each time you do a session for each chakra, you can make an entry that includes the date, time, and the healing method (e.g. crystals, asanas, meditation, oils, etc.) As well as the emotions, thoughts, visions or whatever it is that you experienced before, during and after your crystal healing session.
The third eye chakra is the centre of our intuition. It is said that the third eye is the doorway to our inner wisdom and the higher universal knowledge. A healthy third eye chakra helps us embrace change and see life as a cycle with ends but also, new beginnings.
When the third eye chakra is unbalanced, it can create physical, emotional and psychological problems, as well as, sleeping disturbances. Using Blue Kyanite and Aventurine is a way to bring balance to your third eye chakra.
Be patient and consistent, keep your intention in mind, and be grateful to yourself to start this healing journey. Remember, you may not see improvements straight away, but this doesn’t mean it is not working, depending on your healing process, it could be a slow or fast process. Just be open to receiving the healing.
