Crystals have been used in jewelry for many years, while also touted by some people for their healing purposes. Crystals have positive energies and, reportedly for some, can bring luck to the person owning them. Crystals are used for spiritual practice and ritual, and have helped people connect with the deeper parts of themselves and life. So, how much do you know about crystals? Whether a lot or a little, here are some interesting facts you may not have heard concerning crystals.
Each crystal you come across has mineral structure. This structure syncs for some with sacred geometry, determining how the crystal functions with a specific kind of energy. These structures differ from tetragonal, hexagonal, trigonal, triclinic, or monoclinic. Each of these has inner structures as well, that have been known to echo throughout nature and within your body. For example, hexagonal crystals are known as the most potent healers, while cubic minerals and isometric ones are good conductors of energy. It would be best if you familiarize yourself with this more before getting yourself some of these crystals.
This is where it gets interesting. If you want to 'activate' Quartz Crystals, you will need to 'reprogram' them with your intention. It is encouraged to do this before using these types of crystals.
So what is involved in programming, or reprogramming, crystals?
The process involves whispering or chanting your intentions to the crystals in your hands. Individuals interested in this can read more and find helpful information that can help you. It is said that by programming, Quartz establishes a strong connection with you, enabling you to gain certain 'powers' through it. Therefore, it is essential to learn and understand the whispers and chants you would need to program the crystals, if programming is of interest to you.
Apart from the mineral quality and structure, color is one of the most dignified characteristics that define a crystal. It is also the color that defines the type of stone and how you can use it. One example, pink or green crystals - including the famous rose quartz - are used for emotional healing, while other colors are useful and applied elsewhere. Before getting yourself a crystal, it may be helpful to understand its color better and its use, so you get the most out of it.
Crystals are not like other pieces of rocks you see laying around. Despite being derived from minerals or rocks, crystals live in a 'vegetative' state, meaning they have some form of dormant life. They also grow deep within clusters.
It is for this reason that they are claimed to have some form of healing energy or power that connects with the energy points in a living organism, including human beings. Therefore, you might consider being careful when interacting with these substances, just as you are when interacting with other living organisms. It might be daunting for some to think about, but people believe crystals to contain much-needed healing power.
Since you now understand that crystals are living organisms, it's important that you know how to take care of them before their first use. It is recommended to clean the crystals in a required way before wearing them. The reason for cleaning before using is because it is believed that crystals have absorbed other materials or energies, including spiritual and emotional energy around them, which is important to discard before use.
After cleaning them, it is understood that they can more easily connect then with your body and unleash their healing power. You can do the cleaning in various ways, including utilizing moonlight or sunlight, burying them, or even placing them in water. However, you have to know the kind of crystal you are handling and its effective way of cleaning it.
Some crystals, including Lemurian Seed Crystals and Rutilated Quartz, are believed to store information within their striations and lines. Such information can be translated when using the crystals for meditation. For instance, crystals such as Lemurian Quartz have information lines on all sides, which people have said you can rub and begin to recognize the wisdom in them. You can use this hidden information during meditation to know more about yourself and your transformation.
While some of these facts may seem astonishing, they portray hidden details about crystals that many hold as sacred. As discussed, no one knows the complete information about crystals, and some of this information might be hard to digest. There is no doubt more information concerning crystals not outlined in this article. Thus, it is important that you read from a variety of resources to learn the most about crystals before using them, either as jewelry or for other purposes.
