Modeling crystal as series LC circuit - getting xtal oscillator to "kick"

I'm trying to model a simple RF oscillator with a crystal for frequency control. I'm attempting to model the crystal as a series LC circuit with a shunt capacitor. However, the oscillator does not oscillate when supplied with DC power. Is there a way to spike the voltage to the circuit to get oscillation to start? Thank you for reading my post!
