My passion about crystals has been growing since I was a child. Turquoise has always been one of my favourites. I had turquoise earring, turquoise pendant, turquoise bracelet since I was 10 years old. What is your favourite? May be a Diamond? Diamond is precious gem stones and because of their rarity they are expensive. Also they are girl’s lovely friends. Aren’t they? I rather have emerald which is again precious stone or aqua marine which is semi-precious stone. I am in love with the colours of both stones. Green and Blue. Reminds me the colours of the ocean. You now when the water is too deep the colour blue gets darker and when it is shallow and clear the colour of green appears. So beautiful.
What gives them those beautiful colours? How do they form?
Crystals are minerals formed underground from three-dimensional repeating patterns of atoms. A crystal's appearance depends upon the natural characteristics of its type and the conditions in which it grows. Some take on strange shapes, some are very small and others grow very large, developing over thousands of years.
How do you choose your crystal?
All crystal and gemstones "vibrate” on their own individual frequency. Like us, when you meet somebody new, the first time you either liking the person immediately or feeling an antipathy towards him, yet you are not sure why you felt that way. Or when you are with your best friend all of a sudden you feel that something is wrong. You feel his negativity and you don’t feel comfortable with those e feelings.
It is same choosing crystals. You wonder round the shop and all of a sudden one of them catches your eyes, your heart fill with joy, you just want to have it. It is like falling in love. The coming together of two minds, two spirits and physical bodies, both vibrating the same frequency.
But you also need to look after them. Yes, they need looking after as they can easily pick up negative vibrations around. They need cleansing, dedicating and programming. If you bought a new crystal don’t just start using it straight away. It may well have travelled many thousand miles before reaching you. Ad it may have picked so many energies which you don’t want be exposed to. You really need to remove all those negative vibrations before you actually start using it. Use one of the cleansing ways. I will give you an example of how I cleanse my crystals There are a few ways. I love to use the sun energy for cleansing if and when I can. Placing your crystals in morning sunlight for an hour or so, will charge most crystals. After a sun bath on your windowsill, your crystals will be noticeably brighter. But be careful there are some crystals should not be left under the sunlight as they will fade
You can also place your crystals on the earth for an additional charge while recharging them under the Sun, Moon or Stars. This is an awesome way charging them as they pick up the earth energy and the sun’s energy at the same time.
Cleanings them with moonlight is a gentle and penetrating method for recharging your crystals. The full moons’ light is the brightest in its cycle, thus giving a greater charge to your crystals.
Once they are cleansed you need to dedicate them. As all quartz crystal and gemstones respond instantly to the “intent of will” of the person using them. Once I bought a chakra pendulum which was made of 7 different crystal stones. I really liked the colours. It had Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise, and jade, Golden Topaz, Calcite and also Red Jasper. Beautiful colours and powerful crystals. I cleansed it, programmed it but I was struggling to get a response from it. I increased my intention in the way I would like to use it. I had to work on it a little bit longer so we both would get used to our vibrations. The pendulum had too much power and the properties of those 7 different crystal stone, so I had to work on it more than I worked on other crystals. So don’t give up if the crytal is doing what you asked it to do. You do not have to be psychic in order to connect to the energy of a clear quartz crystal, you just need to be curious and open-minded
Once they are cleansed and dedicated than it is time to programme them.. Programming means is a process of implanting our selected thoughts and feelings into the crystal's energy pattern. The most important part in the programming is your intent transfered to the crystal. You and your crystal are co-workers in the field of expression. The programming of crystals is similar to charging, the only difference being that in the former case you charge the crystal with your own energy and intentions. But “programming" means trying to build a personal relationship with them, showing love and affection towards your crystals. We are talking about vibrations. Crystals have their own intelligence and consciousness, so ask them to be your associates in the world of manifestation. Remember the example I gave you earlier in the video about the pendulum/
Crystals tend to have highly symmetric molecular or lattice structure, thus, they irradiate energy in a consistent and continual manner. This is one of the reasons why we find ourselves attracted to crystals at the first place. Their energy can help us harmonize our own. Many people not been able to meditate due to the high intensity of discordant and erratic energies. But they have managed to do so after placing suitable crystals in their meditation space which introduced an atmosphere of peace, calm and serenity.
Once you have programmed your crystals they will emit the energy of your intention as long as you don't reprogram them, thus redirecting their purpose. The programmed crystal will know what to do - it will irradiate the pater you have implanted into it. Remember this!
I hope you enjoyed my short writing about crystals. I organised a Crystal Love Workshop on the 16th March in Solihull. This all day course will give you detailed information about crystals, how to choose, cleanse, dedicate, programme, how to use pendulum and how to mediate by using crystals ( 1 hour guided meditation is included) ad how to make gem elixirs. The course will end with 1 hr. guided meditation with your crystal as you will receive two crystals as a gift during the course.
At the end of the course you will go away with some knowledge on using crystals. May be this will be start point of your journey with crystals. Visit my webpage http://www.remedy4people.co.uk/ for further information and bookings. Look forward to seeing you on the 16th March, @Olton Friary.
