I’m pretty much a non-woo-woo type, so if you’re skeptical about the effectiveness of crystals/gems/stones in your life I completely understand.
The stories of thousands of people over millions of years is something that cannot, however, be denied. Indigenous people began tapping into the energy of the earth far before modern science found uses for these minerals. Simply put, everything is energy vibrating at specific frequencies to produce matter.
Since minerals/crystals/stones/gems are from the earth we know that they contain specific properties, conductivity and magnetic alliances from their formation in the earth. We have been using this energy, either in its raw form or milled for use in products like computer boards, pharmaceuticals, etc. Earth scientist (geologists) have long studied how the layers of stone and minerals have been formed and how indigenous people have used these minerals in healing throughout the ages. This is science, not woo-woo. When I finally wrapped my head around that fact, a whole new world opened to me.
When I use "crystals" in my practice, I take into consideration the specific properties of the stone and how it can enhance or protect specific energies. It may be a conductor or it may be more of a protector. You may have a collection of crystals, gems, and stones and it's important to keep their energy clean and clear so they are at their peak performance.
I’ve long used the power of the sun and moon to “recharge” my crystals…but I recently read an article by a healer who uses crystals and her analysis made perfect sense. She provided a long, detailed explanation of why crystals don’t “lose” their “charge.” However, she explained, their inherent vibrational pattern, through exposure to other frequencies, can become compromised…muddled. She suggested a method of “resetting” that is in keeping with the inherent properties of the earth: sound vibration. Yes, the vibration of a sustained, loud sound is the most effective way to “clear” your crystals! I now use my singing bowl to produce the sound vibration. It’s a method I use to reset the energy of my home, and it makes sense that it would effectively and simultaneously clear the frequency of my crystals in place. That said, it’s important to keep your crystals clean as well. Just as you clean your home, you want to keep dust and grime off your crystals. For this I prefer plain filtered water. Some people use a light sea-salt bath but salt can be corrosive to some stones…and it’s for that reason that I prefer clear water.
If you would like a presentation on the use of crystals in your home or office, contact me for details. I do presentations for both small and large groups in both private and public venues.
