Crystals were the first life form here on Earth. Clay was the first crystallized form and played an important role in the formation of life. Matter is crystallized Spirit, and as Spirit is here on Earth, crystals have a higher consciousness than plants which are more integrated with the day to day life here on Earth.
Crystals are the focus for grounding and indeed, without certain crystalline structures, there would be no life. (Gurudus: Gem Elixirs and Vibrational Healing. Vol.1). Crystals anchor and focus light energy. Everything is in a constant state of vibration at the base level and therefore there is a constant system of harmonics and resonance. This harmonics within crystals is very stable and can have a positive effect on the unstable patterns within the human body.
Thought is amplified by crystals - it is one of the main properties of quartz. We also know that the mind shapes the body. (If you are unsure of this sit comfortably relaxed in a chair and take note of how your body feels. Then, remember a time of stress and note what your body feels like now. Finish by remembering a happy time and notice the difference in your body!) Therefore, if we connect with our crystal by thought it allows for the crystal vibration to directly enter the body where it is needed.
The crystal first aid list
The following crystal first aid list offers you a few of the crystals which may be of help in certain situations. Remember that this list is not comprehensive or personalised. If attracted to other stones, then they may be the right ones for you at this time.
Choosing your crystal
When choosing your crystal, you may feel the vibration by running your hand above them or by using your sight. Always keep in mind the situation for which you require the crystal's help. Crystals may also be given to you or you may choose for a friend. Keep that person and their situation in your mind as you make your selection.
It is important to clean your crystal regularly. It will absorb much of the negativity you are carrying and needs your help to release it! This should be done at least weekly if you are using your crystal daily. Crystals used in a specific room would benefit from a monthly cleansing.
- Leave it out overnight on the grass, especially in the new or full moon. Be careful that the birds do not steal them!
- Smoke them in frankincense or other cleansing incense. It is best to shut the room and let the smoke linger for a while.
- Bury them in sea salt overnight. Throw the salt away the next day.
- Run clear, pure water over them. Imagine them being cleansed.
- Take them for a swim in the ocean, being careful not to loose them! A fine mesh bag will be of assistance!
After cleansing, hold your crystal at your heart chakra (in the middle of your chest) and ask that all previous programs be cleared. Then, hold your thoughts of the situation in your highest good and ask the crystal to help you achieve them. This may take a few minutes. It is important to keep your thoughts on where you want to be, not where you are at the moment. Remember that crystals amplify thoughts!
Working with your crystal
All that is left to do is decide how best to use your crystal.
- Carry it with you in a pocket.
- Tape it to your body where you want the most help.
- Put it under your pillow when you sleep.
- Meditate with your crystal by holding it at the heart centre.
Please remember to seek medical advice on any physical problem you may be experiencing. Crystals should be used as an adjunct to professional help.
Enjoy your experience!
