The elements represent the four creative energies of the universe and each has a set of archetypal energies associated with it. Getting familiar with these can help you better understand their energetic influence on you. Each element is also associated with certain healing stones based on their respective properties and energies. Let’s dive into water element crystals, and discover how you can incorporate the power of water into your crystal practice…

Water Element Crystals

Water is a powerful ally, a companion, and a wise teacher.

Water has had such a profound impact on my life… From summer walks around the pond near my grandparents’ house during my childhood, to hiking the marshes near my home searching for skunk cabbages in college, to my deeply profound pilgrimage to Avalon where I connected with the Red & White Springs (which had a huge impact on my spiritual practice), water has been ever present in my life…even here in the Midwestern US! Water has held me during times of joy and deep grief, in moments of embodied presence and mystical experience.

Working with Your Water Element Crystals:

To work with your water element crystal, place it on your altar along with something representing the water element. Your water element symbol could be something like a small dish of water, a fountain, seashells (especially an Abalone shell), a chalice or goblet, a mirror, an image or statue of a mermaid or dolphin, or anything else that helps you feel connected with the energy of water. Make yourself comfortable in front of your altar. And pick up your water element crystal. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths.


Working With Your Crystals


Ask the stone to help connect you with the energy of the Water Element and to provide you with clarity about what water has to share with you. Envision yourself surrounded by the energy of the water element. Take another deep breath in, and exhale. Then open your eyes and gaze at your water altar. When you feel ready, close your eyes again and think about your altar’s symbolism and imagery. What thoughts enter your mind about its energy and meaning for you at this time? What messages is the water element bringing to you?


Draw Energy From the Water Element


Take a few more deep breaths in and feel the energy of water move from your stone, into your hands, filling your aura and charging you up with the energy of the water element. You may wish to journal about your insights to keep a record of the messages you uncover. You can perform this ritual with any of your chosen water element crystals.
