Wearing and Carrying Crystals or Gems
When I speak of wearing and carrying, I mean all types of applications that will place the stone close to your body for fairly long periods of time.
This can mean as a pendant, earrings, a chain of stones, or even carrying a comforting tumbled stone in your pocket. Whatever you decide, it is best to have direct contact with your skin. Even natural fiber clothing will somewhat shield the effects of a stone, although they can also help ease you into wearing it by subduing its energies a bit.
In the beginning there may actually seem to be an increase of your symptoms. Don't be alarmed, it just means that the problem or illness is being addressed, and that is a symptom of healing. These increases can last from a couple of hours to several days. If it has been a week and there has been no marked improvement, your choice of stone probably needs to be checked.
There is no formula (proven anyway) about the correct amount of time to wear a crystal since we are all different. What works well with one person can seem like torture to another. It is important to remember that we are working on healing, not trying to set a new world record of enduring something that is uncomfortable.
Again, if something seems to remain uncomfortable to use, double check your choice of stone
because healing makes us feel better - not worse.
