The basic tenant of metaphysic teaches us that energy responds to intention. Once our intention is set upon healing another person not only do we become a conduit for healing but the energy of the crystals and stones we are using also pick up the vibration of the healing intention bringing forth their own inherent and special healing gifts.
Nature is filled with Sacred Geometry and the Mineral Kingdom is no exception. Crystalline structures can be thought of as the Earth’s DNA storing the evolution of the planet. Science tells us that crystals formed from the same mineral or combination of minerals can crystallize differently. The outward expression of a crystal is based upon its internal order although the outer form may not always reflect what is going on at the heart or core of the crystal. At the inner most center of a crystal is its atomic structure spinning or rotating at a particular frequency or vibration.
This represents the energy of a crystal and is what a sensitive person feels when handling a crystal. It should be remembered that stones and crystals share the same electromagnetic patterning and atomic structure as the Earth, the human body, and all other creatures and entities. Surrounding the center is Sacred Geometry as chosen by Nature upon which the crystal is built. This internal structure is believed to be constant and unchanging.
“In mineralogy and crystallography, a crystal structure is a unique arrangement is a unique arrangement of atoms in a crystal. A crystal structure is composed of a unit cell, a set of atoms arranged in a particular way; which is periodically repeated in three dimensions on a lattice. The spacing between unit cells in various directions is called its lattice parameters. The symmetry properties of the crystal are embodied in its space group. A crystal's structure and symmetry play a role in determining many of its properties, such as cleavage, electronic band structure, and optical properties.” – Wikipedia online
There are six crystal systems that delineate their symmetry - Isometric, Orthorhombic, Tetragonal, Monoclinic, Hexagonal, and Triclinic.
ISOMETRIC – block like or ball like with many similar symmetrical faces forming as cubes, octahedrons and dodecahedrons. Sodalite, Fluorite, Garnet, Lapis, Galena, and Pyrite are a few examples.
ORTORHOMBIC – short stubby diamond shaped or rectangular at the cross section forming as four sided prisms, pyramids and pinacoids (an open form with two parallel faces). Examples are Sulphur, Cat’s Eye, Peridot, Topaz, and Marcasite.
TETRAGONAL – long, slender, and needle like forming as four sided prisms, pyramids, and dipyramids. Examples are Rutile, Cassiterite, Apophyllite, and Zircon.
MONOCLINIC – stubby with tilted matching faces at opposite ends forming as prisms and pinacoids. Examples are Malachite, Azurite, Chrysocolla, Jade, Selenite, and Serpentine.
HEXAGONAL (TRIGONAL) – prismatic or columnar with rounded triangular or hexagonal cross section forming as six sided prisms, pyramids, and rhombehedrons. Examples are Tourmaline, Beryl, Quartz, Cinnabar, Hematite, Calcite, Dioptase, and Apatite.
TRICLINIC – flat with sharp edges and a thin cross section with no right angles forming as pinacoids. Examples are Turquoise, Wulfenite, and Feldspar.
Here are the geometric forms of crystal structure:
The Platonic Solids
The 5 Platonic solids (Tetrahedron, Cube or (Hexahedron), Octahedron, Dodecahedron & Icosahedron) are ideal, primal models of crystal patterns that occur throughout the world of minerals in countless variations. These are the only five regular polyhedra, that is, the only five solids made from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons. To the Greeks, these solids symbolized fire, earth, air, spirit (or ether) and water respectively. The cube and octahedron are duals, meaning that one can be created by connecting the midpoints of the faces of the other. The icosahedron and dodecahedron are also duals of each other,and three mutually perpendicular, mutually bisecting golden rectangles can be drawn connecting their vertices and midpoints, respectively. The tetrahedron is a dual to itself. The Chakras which are the spinning energy vortexes of the human body are also subject to Sacred Geometry as it comes to us via the Five Platonic Solids. Please note the similarity between the geometry of the Chakras known as Polyhedra (equal angles, faces and vertices or points) and crystalline structures.
Healing with crystals is a very ancient modality. Archeology has shown that the knowledge and use of crystals, minerals, and gemstones dates back to the Stone Age. Ancient cultures revered crystals and stones and engaged them not only for healing purposes but also for communication and prophesying. Many people believe that these ‘magickal rocks’ particularly Quartz was used extensively for advanced technology in Lemuria and Atlantis. Even a skeptic would have to open a more objective eye to this concept when we already know that something as simple as a ham radio can be powered by the tiniest solo piece of crystal (Galena) without the aid of batteries or household electric current.
Along with the ancient alchemists, contemporary scientists and physicists have researched the properties of crystals and stones. We know that the magnetism produced by an electric current is inherent in the atomic structure of certain stones. Human beings are also magnetic and electrical so a natural tie can be made. Esoterically speaking, mystics, shamans, and quantum physicists perceive that electromagnetic energy is the physical source of ether or the fifth element (along with the elements fire, earth, air, and water) in which all creatures exist. From this viewpoint, the relationship between magnetism and electricity can be seen as bridging the gap between physical reality and other worldly reality. Hence, crystals and stones also as a bridge between those realities.
We are all children of the Universe and our bodies represent the Cosmos in miniature. We are attuned to not only Mother Earth but also Father Sky and our human bodies are the vehicles through which we experience all there is to experience. Everything happens within the body. The body is your house. It is place where you go to make change happen. Did you ever hear the expression, “If you want change, you must first clean up your house?” All psychic phenomena and psychological conditions occur within the body – we go into our ‘houses’ to find the answers from our mind, feelings, and instincts (rational, emotional, and psychic). During a Crystal Healing, assistance for these internal answers comes from the Kingdom of Stone buried at the heart of the Earth and from the Kingdom of Light through the Hand of God. Crystal Therapists understand the Mineral Kingdom as a Universal Energy that is used for healing under the auspices of the Higher Will and Divine Law of God. The power of crystals and stones work through the higher consciousness of the individual being healed. A Crystal Therapist like any other energy healer houses no great personal power. They simply help to direct Universal energies through use of the Mineral Kingdom to further the propagation of the Light and Love for the good of all. Crystal Therapy is a serious healing modality which requires right attitude and right action. Nothing less is acceptable.
So today I purchased an exquisitely carved rose quartz skull and thought I`d share some information regarding the subject. I came across a website that had all the information I wanted to post and more so I will just share the link. If any one else…Continue
A friend had this to say........what does anyone know about this;Auralite is the oldest known crystal, at 1.5 billion years old, which is when life was just forming on Earth. It has 23 known minerals, with an average of 17 known healing crystals…Continue
As far as arranging crystals in a room, one needs to try to find their power in relation to each other, even if it’s not the correct universal power number, it will help find a zero balance and then it can be increased from there to what is needed…Continue
The faceting of the crystals should be in the shape of a triangle, an elongated triangle, with the point on the longest side being the positive point of power. The other two lesser points are not both negative, but will be one positive and one…Continue
One of the uses for crystals would be for cleansing purposes. Crystals are the absorbers of negative energy when used in correct combinations. These ideas are out there, but have not congealed into the over-all picture of what can be accomplished…Continue
