I remember watching this and thinking you believe in aliens but can’t accept that crystals might have some greater purpose in our lives. Quartz crystals are very important in the modern world since they are used in watches, cell phones, television receivers and computers. Quartz is used because of its crystalline form is the perfect conductor to hold and carry information. It’s about vibrational frequency. Quartz in its crushed form is used in such everyday things as light tubing and sand paper. We use and bring quartz into our home every day.
A Hawaiian friend explained the natives used to believe that crystals came complete with their own spirits. Because they could not determine if it was a good or bad spirit, the general rule was not to bring them in the house. He remembered trying to bring in an attractive crystal he found, but his grandmother blocked his way.
Celtic lore would attach a particular fairy to each stone––a caretaker of sorts. In many religious beliefs, crystals and other stones are used for meditation, assistance in healing, and protection. With this in mind, it might be useful knowing how to pick out a crystal for yourself.
Since you are receiving the crystal even though you may be buying it for yourself, pick it up with your left hand (right hand if you’re left handed.) See how it feels to you. Crystals put out a vibrational frequency and one that resonates with your frequency will feel right. It could be a positive, tingly feeling. One that isn’t right emits no feeling or might even cause repulsion as if you need to put it down. (It’s not a bad crystal it’s just not for you.)
Put aside all judgment current society might use. It does not have to be the biggest or the most colorful specimen to be valuable. One of my favorite stones to work with is a plain creek stone that has the memory of water embedded in it.
If buying for a friend, this become a little problematic. You can mentally envision your friend as you pick up stones. It helps to know in what area your friend needs assistance. It’s good to know what the crystal uses are when deciding to purchase one. (Don’t be shocked if your friend isn’t thrilled with the stone or even uses it. It’s better to have someone pick out his or her own crystal and offer to pay for it.)
Any book by Judy Hall will tell you a great deal about crystals. There are several online websites that provide information along with the ability to order stones. (Stones ordered online wipe out the possibility of holding the crystal in your hand to see if you’re a good match.) What I would stay away from is reference books like the encyclopedia. Those sources do not take in account that the crystals have a purpose other than a financial one.
A clear quartz crystal or point is always a good one to start with since it is often referred to as the master healer. Clear quartz not only clears negative energy, but it magnifies the energy of other crystals. It also boosts your intentions. It aids in concentration and unblocks memories. You’ll find clear quartz in past life regression offices, Spiritualist churches, and anywhere energy healing might happen. (There will be more information on this unique crystal in future blogs.) Where do you go to find crystals?
If you have a gravel driveway, there’s a good chance you can find quartz in it. If you live in Arkansas, you can dig up your own. Crystals can be found at Rock and Gem shows that show up at local fairgrounds. Festivals such Spirit Fest, and Pagan Pride always have crystals for purchase. They are available for purchase inside some Spiritualism church bookshops, New Age or energy healing studios. The best piece of turquoise I ever found was in a junk shop. A garage sale yielded a sizable quartz specimen for fifty-cents. Keep your eyes and mind open because often the crystal you need will find you.
As for the show, the crystal-loving woman did have valuable information.
Next blog will be on cleansing and charging your crystals.
