Did you know there’s a fairy guardian for every crystal? Elemental Expert Karen Kay shares her wisdom
Do certain crystals inexplicably call to you, and could it be the combined call of the fae? Everything in nature has a guardian fairy and a magical life force that helps everything to grow, including crystals.
Spot fairy energy
The crystal fairies can be perceived as having the same colour and energetic vibration as the crystal they’re connected to. For example, a rose quartz fairy would be pale pink with a soft, loving and high vibe energy, whereas a black obsidian fairy would appear as darker black energy (not bad), and this fairy would be beneficial to call upon if you feel you need extra grounding or if you’re feeling spaced out or heady. The fairies embody the qualities of the crystals. You could experiment by holding different crystals and imagining what that particular fairy might look like.

Now try something new
Partake in a crystal fairy ritual
1 Start by finding a crystal that you like. Cleanse it by placing it on a piece of selenite or outside under the sun or moonlight, whichever feels instinctively right for you.
2 Find a peaceful place where you will not be disturbed and sit quietly with your chosen cleansed crystal in your hand.
3 Close your eyes and take three deep breaths. With each breath, feel more and more relaxed.
4 Next, tune into the crystal you are holding and visualise the crystal’s colour in your mind’s eye. Then feel the energy of your crystal. Notice any feelings, emotions and sensations.
5 Now say, “Fairy of this crystal (say the name of the crystal), please show yourself to me energetically. I welcome you with an open heart and mind, full of love and respect for you and your kind. I ask this for the highest good of all beings including myself.”
6 Wait a few moments and be receptive to any visions you may receive. Fairies can appear in many different forms. Remember they are magical shape-shifting beings of nature. Try not to have any expectations or to judge your experience, simply accept what manifests for you and trust you are perceiving exactly what is right for you in this moment. Everyone’s experience will be different with some similarities.
7 What does she or he look like? Perhaps just as an energy form, sparkles or a mist in the same colour as the crystal – anything goes in fairyland!
8 Just observe and allow. Sense the energy of this crystal fairy and feel free to ask a question if you wish from your heart, not your head! Then wait patiently for the answer, which may come instantly as a feeling, or a telepathic voice, or maybe the answer will take a little longer. Either way, there is no right or wrong, everything will happen in perfect divine timing.
9 When you feel ready, take another three deep breaths. This time become aware of the sensation of your body against the chair or the floor. Feel fully grounded and in your body. Then slowly open your eyes and take a few moments before getting up. Have a biscuit or fruit, as working with fairies and crystals together can make you feel a bit spacey!
