How Crystal Energy Works

Crystal Energy

Crystals and gemstones are living formations that have been growing in our earth since the beginning of time.  Considered highly sacred and powerful, these beings have been used since the dawn of ancient civilization.  These ancient crystals have been used as encoded tablature by the lemurian civilization which dates back 30,000 years.  Crystals then and crystals now are used as aids in physical, emotional, spiritual healing, spirit contact, psychic development, holistic healing, and a vast array of much more.  In working with crystals, you embark on a journey of rediscovering and healing your true, inner self. 

Crystal Healing Energy

In the Metaphysical world of gemstones, it is said that Crystals can transform us. It is true that we can find some wonderful Natural healing properties among the stones we find. But how can we determine what stones should be used for a particular ailment or condition?   Which gems are better for physical healing, and which are better used for Spiritual, vibrational and psychic situations?

Some find it fairly easy to make this determination, by the use of color and type.  For instance, green gems are primarily used for regeneration and healing, while white stones are more etheric in nature and can be beneficial for Spirit work.  I find when choosing only colored gemstonesto be highly useful for Color association therapy, (as mentioned above), or especially effective when treating the first 7 Chakras each color associated , but generally color therapy is somewhat simplified andtherefor I truly look at the stones, gems, or crystals PROPERTIES, along with color or type, and make my determination for usage. 

There are different types of stones, gems and crystals, and they  all work in different ways.  Tumbled stones and small natural crystals are most often available to us.  They can be found in a wide variety of minerals and are easy to carry and use.  Larger clusters of minerals are very useful for charging and cleansing of other gems and Magickal jewelry.  The larger single hand held Crystals and wands are wonderful for meditation and for directional healing of specific body parts and systems.

Usually, we are drawn to a particular stone for our own personal reasons
and they become vital to our healing practices. It is said each crystal you find yourself drawn to own had been waiting precisely just for you.  We may choose to wear a particular gem as an adornment in a piece of Magickal jewelry so that we may take advantage of it's energies and
healing power on a regular basis.

Because all gemstones come from Mother Earth , each one is naturally
fully charged with her powerful energies!  Since the Earth is about 4.6 Billion years old, it is possible that through erosion, wind, water and all the other forces of Nature, the small stone you wear or carry for healing, may be millions of years old!!!

In the case of Crystals however, they can only form from a gas or liquid
solution and therefore are different than stone and rock.  For this reason, crystals heal in a more complex fashion than Natural stones.  They may have inclusions, crystals within crystals, shadows and light, and even
other minerals growing inside of them.  Crystals are unique, in that they have extra electrons that are stored within them from the creation of their lattice, or structure.  It is these electrons that enable Crystals to become transducers, or in other words, they are able to change one form or energy into another!

To demonstrate this electrical energy, you can rub two small pieces of
 Quartz together in a dark room and they will show what is called, 
'triboluminescence'.

Even a sugar cube (with a crystal structure) , that is crushed in darkness
will display flashes of green light!!!  This is called 'piezoelectricity' and it represents a large electrical current that is generated within the crystal itself due to a deformity in the lattice structure of the Crystal.

CRYSTALS ARE IN FACT ELECTRICALLY CHARGED!!!

They are the most organized and stable matter in the Universe and once a Crystal is formed it can remain unchanged for millions of years!

The proof that Crystal Healing can be beneficial, is not some trick that needs to be performed, but instead, lies deep within the Crystal itself!  
For when a Crystal becomes subjected to extreme conditions of heat and pressure, it not only alters its form, but may  transform itself into another mineral altogether! Indeed this awesome Natural energy can enable us to grow if used wisely.  It is a force that we can harness and use to transform ourselves!  It is the power of Crystal Healing!

How Does Crystal Healing Work?

Healing with crystals is something everyone can do.  It's convenient, easy, and inexpensive.  In 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 you work 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 rebalance 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.   Each of our crystal products come with complete description cards that include the stone's name and its healing properties.

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.  With every crystal purchase, we include instructions on a common technique known as "programming."

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 crystals 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.

I am becoming more and more attuned to using crystals throughout our home, for healing's and for charging various herbal formulas and it truly is amazing the energy they gift us when we work with them.  I add crystals to all of my potted plants in our home and I have noticed a huge difference in their growth and overall health.  That was science enough for me!

The Season to Thrive

I love this article by VibesUp. Most of you know how much I respect their products. This gives you an idea of the owners beautiful energy. I encourage all of you to keep your vibrations high as we move into Spring! We can all do this by joining groups where we connect with others. Make sure the groups you are involved with are in alignment with your energies or higher. Don’t allow lower vibrations to consume you. Rather, recognize them and choose a higher frequency for yourself. Make sure to get involved with charities that touch your heart and make a difference, make a point to do things that fill your heart with love...like gardening, knitting, reading, hiking, etc. We are all moving into a beautiful, higher vibration, stay in tune!”
— Sheryl Burns

SEASON TO THRIVE?
I have come to the conclusion that at THIS TIME on this planet we are not here to suffer but rather it is the season to THRIVE.
From my studies of Nature, the mayan Calendar, the cycles of the planet and the current vibration of the earth, the Shueman resonance or heartbeat of the planet is CURRENTLY FAST, which is creating a high frequency.

WHAT IS THE NATURAL OUTCOME OF THIS HIGH FREQUENCY?
In a lower energy things are thick and dense and slow, life is harder. In a higher energy frequency, things are smooth, light, transparent and fast. We have more energy to activate more of our brain and life expectancy. We are in the cycle or season to THRIVE.

HIGH and LOW VIBRATIONS CAN NOT COEXIST
... which means if our planet is vibrating high and we are vibrating low there is friction and it can become increasingly uncomfortable. The more we become a match for the currently frequency the more we can ride the wave of thriving and use this energy for expanding into the amazing being that we are, activating much more of our dormant abilities and wisdom.

THRIVE IS A CHOICE AWAY. With this in mind I encourage you to make a conscious commitment to making choices that raise your vibration including the foods we eat, the movies or tv we watch, the thoughts we have the people we surround ourselves with, spending time doing more things that uplift us rather than drain us, getting out in nature more, developing a relationship with plants, trees and animals. Focusing on what you love. Spending 10% of your time on identify any challenges that come up and 90% of our energy solving them. Telling people all day long what you love about them. Especially strangers. It uplifts them and you.

IT'S NOT WORK, ITS FUN!
This is the most fun choice we can make and keep making it until it becomes a HABIT. Stay in tune with how your body feels, it is your best life GPS. It will remind you when your off track. If it feels sinking or draining it's time to immediately change course and it can be done quickly with an immediate shift of what you focus on. Even if it's just thinking of your favorite color.

SUFFERING IS OUTDATED and Nature is here to help shift us off that path. I am extremely grateful to Nature for inspiring the solution tools that help raise our vibration, making it easier to make high vibe choices and relieve outdated heavy thinking and suffering.

WOO! HOO!!!
What a great time to be alive and THRIVE on planet earth!!!! Let's all lock arms and hearts and together become part of theHIGH VIBE TRIBE and THRIVE THRIVE THRIVE!

A time to Thrive

Sacred Prayer Feathers

Since we have the amazing ladies of Earthen Moon joining us again for an exciting class on making your very own Prayer Feathers, I thought I would write a little about what they are and why we use them in our practice of cleansing.

 Beautiful Prayer Feather Fan made in our last class!

Beautiful Prayer Feather Fan made in our last class!

Native Americans believed their prayers and messages were sent to spirit on the wings of many great birds, such as the Eagle and the Hawk.   Each different type of feather carried different spiritual meanings to them.  Feathers were used in headdresses for sacred ceremonies and to make smudging fans to honor the Great Spirit, the Earth, and all the creatures of the earth.

Prayer Feathers are used in smudging because it is said to carry your thoughts, words, feelings and intentions to the Great Spirit.  Each time you look at your Sacred Prayer Feather your wishes, prayers and intentions are again carried out into the Great Heavens.  

When saging in ceremony, sage in all 6 directions: East, West, South, North, Earth (Below), and Sky (Above).  So why do we Sage?  Saging can help to clear the energy of the room.  It promotes balance, peace, and a relaxed and calm energy.   It can help to alleviate depression & anxiety.  I sage often before meditation to create the positive space I need to connect with Spirit.  I also sage our home frequently to help keep me grounded and in a positive space.  The best part is the aroma is wonderful and it makes me feel fantastic! 

If you are interested in learning more, I highly suggest our upcoming class.  Learn about the different meanings of feathers and create a personalized Sacred Prayer Feather Fan, full of all your own intentions!  For more information on the class Click Here

Feather Fan Class $67.  Saturday, October 1st 2-4pm.  Class size is limited to 5 people.  Register: 603-864-8578
