What are Crystals?
For thousands of years, crystals have been used for protection and adornment. Crystals are born deep within the womb of Mother Earth – defined as ‘a substance solidified in a definitive geometric form’. Superheated gases and mineral solutions forced their way up and out of the Earth’s molten interior towards the surface. In time, as they cooled, atoms formed orderly patterns. Three-Dimensional lattices repeating throughout are what hold the crystal’s internal structure stable. Crystals can be sectioned into families or groups sharing basic qualities even though they may appear different. Their appearance is affected by the pressures and temperatures at which they were formed.
Cleansing Crystals –
Due to crystals absorbing so much energy from their surroundings it is highly important to cleanse them regularly. Ideally, those used for decorative purposes should be cleansed monthly and those used in healing frequently should be cleansed daily of after each use; otherwise, any negative energies/vibrations picked up by it will be easily passed on.
Easy ways to purify…
Natural forces – Plants, Sun, Moon, water, etc. are very effective in ridding of stale energies.
Smudging – Hold the crystal in smoke from a Sage smudge stick – use a feather to fan smoke across the crystal.
Visualization – Use your mind to picture a pure white light coming down and surrounding the crystal. Transmit the energies until the crystal shines out once more.
Water – Immerse in water for an hour or two. NB. Please remember that this method is not suitable for soft or friable stones.
Quartz Cluster – Stand the crystal on a large quartz cluster for approximately twelve hours and leave in moon or sunlight. Stones have a natural affinity to benefit from this.
Programming Crystals –
Crystals work best when programmed for a specific desire which harnesses your intent.
In order to make a crystal your own, it is important to first program it. This ensures that whatever your intention for it will come about.
- Always remember to dedicate the energies for the highest good.
- Dedicate immediately after cleansing.
- Dedication is simple but enormously effective as it positively focuses on any intention.
How to program a crystal…
- Hold the crystal in your hands and picture a pure light around it.
- Reinforce that the crystal will only be used for the highest good in love, light and healing; then move directly on to programming.
- It is important to focus while programming and remember that imprecise wording confuses crystals whilst meticulous wording directs precisely.
Crystal Beauty –
The shape of a crystal determines how it transmits energy and what impact that energy has on its surroundings. Here is a brief guide to what to look for depending on its intended use…
Geodes – Cave like in appearance. These both diffuse and contain energy.
Square Crystals – Consolidate energy.
Pyramid Shape – Tightly focus energy through the apex.
Egg Shaped – Are brilliant for use on the body and rebalancing blockages – can be a tool in alternative therapies.
Spheres – These emit energy in all directions equally. They can be used to transport energy from other times or places.
Clusters – Radiate out their intense energy which surrounds them. They are very cleansing!
Double Terminated (points both ends) – Used for balance as they give and absorb at the same time.
Long Pointed Crystals – Focuses in a straight line depending on which way it is pointing. Draws off or injects energy. They are useful in healing.
