The Earth is beautiful everywhere you look – the sky, mountains, oceans, lakes, rivers, plant life, animal life, human life. So it is when the Earth opens her heart…look what pours out – the incredible, awesome beauty of minerals. They manifest a precision, perfection, and creative beauty that we have admired for thousands of years.
Crystals and minerals start as an event. They happen. They are not static. All the necessary conditions such as temperature, pressure, and chemical elements that when combined in a particular way at a particular time it facilitates their birth and growth.
The rocks that make up the earth’s crust, that we walk on, that comprise our mountain ranges and canyons – have all undergone and will continue to experience great changes. Rocks are what was once liquid – molten lava – that have cooled and become solid. Rocks are the result of the massive accumulation of particles and plant and animal life that are compacted down, layer by layer.
Rocks can not only bend, compress, and erode over time and from the elements, but can even metamorphose into different rocks, by extreme pressure, temperature, and chemical activity. Crystals have life and a story to tell. They hold the records of the most ancient histories of our earth.
Crystals in particular do indeed have “energy.” That is why quartz crystal is used in watches and radios. A quartz crystal is an oscillator – it receives, transmits, and stores perfect energy. Quartz is used in a watch because it oscillates at an absolutely perfect rate. And this energy is pure energy. The energy emanating from a quartz crystal when held in your hand is not like the energy in the light bulbs in your house or from the nuclear power plant. The energy of the crystal is directly from nature and pure as nature intended it.
I believe this is why we have a need to connect with crystals. Crystals hold the true vibration of our planet. We have forgotten our ability to experience that vibration for ourselves. In our current man-made environment, we have built a barrier that prevents us from experiencing what is actual reality. That barrier has been built over the last few thousand years of human existence, and is now part of us. The original vibration is still there – within us – but we need to connect with another source in order to remember. I think that is the role that crystals are playing in many lives today. Crystals are a source of the true vibration that is.
Crystals have been used as aids in physical, emotional, and spiritual healing since the dawn of ancient civilization. In working with crystals, you will embark on a journey of rediscovering and healing your true inner self.
How Does Quartz Crystal Healing Work?
Healing with crystals is something everyone can do. It's convenient, easy, and inexpensive. In the simple terms, here's how it works:
Energy is the essence of the human body. Each type of crystal vibrates to its own specific type of energy. When your working with crystals, the energy of the stone actually blends with your own energy, thereby transforming and/or amplifying your vibrational frequency or the energy within your body. In turn, crystals help to re-balance and re-energize your body on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.
Each type of crystal radiates a certain type of energy, which corresponds to and works with the energies present in specific physical and/or emotional areas of your self.
As far as effectively working with crystals, you simply need to be around them. That's it! Of course, there are techniques and exercises you can do to enhance the healing effects of your crystals, but it truly is as simple as holding one in your hand, or placing one on your nightstand.
The most important thing you'll want to keep in mind is that, every now and then, your crystals should be cleansed.
This is because in addition to radiating healing energy, crystals also absorb our negative energies. Over time, and especially after a major healing session your crystal can absorb so much negative energy that they actually become blocked. This blockage weakens the crystal's natural healing effect.
Cleansing helps the crystal release the negative energy, thereby recharging the stone and increasing its healing power.
Cleansing Your Quartz Crystal
First cleanse - is just to remove any traces of dust or fingerprints. Simply run your crystal under running water. Of course, if your crystal item is delicate or has a been set into jewelry or a collectible, you may cleanse by gently wiping your crystal with a soft moist towel.
The second cleanse - and the more important one - is energetic.
Your intention is to purify the crystal to remove any negative energies or imbalances it may have picked up in handling by others. Of course, crystals will also rebalance and cleanse themselves over time if left unused and not handled. The following methods will allow you to help your crystal back to its balanced state right away.
USE OF A CRYSTAL CLUSTER
If you have a large enough clustered crystal in your home, using it is the easiest way to cleanse and attune your new crystals. To do so, simply place your new crystal on top of a crystal cluster and leave it there until the next day. Amethyst Crystal Cluster works faster!
You can smudge your crystal with incense or smudge sticks. If you choose incense, any scent that enchants you will do, but those based upon sandalwood, sage, cedar, and frankincense have a long tradition of use as purifying agents. Simply hold your crystal in the smoke of the incense or smudge stick and let the smoke carry away any unwanted energies. You only need to do this until your crystal feels cleansed.
DRY SEA SALT
Dry sea salt is wonderful for removing negative energies, and since it is itself a crystal, it resonates well with crystal items. Simply fill a bowl with sea salt and bury your crystal in it for 24 hours. After 24 hours, remove your crystal and wipe clean. Disgard the salt, as it now carries the imbalanced energies.
Caution: Do not use salt water, Salt water can damage crystals and jewelry pieces.
THE SUN AND/OR MOON
Place your crystals either outside or on a inside window ledge in the sun or moonlight. Many people have their preference between sun and moonlight, and you may choose one or the other: sun for a crystal that you intend to use in outgoing, yang areas, and moon for inner workings and yin areas. Some people prefer to use both sun and moon. (For the energy of both sun and moon, simply allow the crystal to absorb light from both of them by letting them bask in the same area for 24 hours.)
The vibrations of sound are wonderful for a quick refresh and cleanse of your crystal. A very personal way to cleanse your crystal is to sing or chant to it, using any beautiful melody that inspires you. Alternatively, you can use a bell, gong, wind chimes, singing bowl, or tuning fork. (Singing bells are especially wonderful for this!)
Simply sing, and/or ring your bell close to the crystal until you feel the crystal is completely cleansed.
