Uses of Crystals
Perhaps the greatest value of crystals is their use in healing. They have long been known for
their curative effects when used in the preparation of tinctures; for their
protective characteristics when worn as amulets and talismans; and for
their ability to enhance the energy fields of the body as they emit uniform
vibrations. They have the power of living stone.
The energy field of this quartz, called piezoelectricity, is a major contributor
to our communication systems. Computers, sonar, watches, radio stations
all use this amazing and constant, uneviating energy field. The piezo-electrical
property of crystals means that they are capable of holding an electrical
charge, and because of this quality, these minerals amplify healing work
on meditation, which in turn speeds up the process. Quartz is the most
economical source of this energy. To reduce the cost even further, laboratories
are growing quartz from a slice of the real thing. It has been found that
the laboratory grown specimens are the preferred kind. They are better
because they are more uniform, clearer, and of a higher quality.
Crystals store and conduct energy. They can even absorb on kind of energy
and emit another when squeezed, heated or cooled. Quartz crystal absorbs
both magnetism from the Earth's core and radiation from the Sun, and remits
that energy. Kirlian photography has recorded this energy emission, which
appears in photographs as a white light aura radiation from a blue star
center. The energy radiant from clear quartz and other crystals is resonant
with the human aura; this is its healing attribute.
The resonance occurs rapidly, within a few moments of holding a crystal
or gemstone in the hand. Energy from crystals passes through and penetrates
all matter, even into human cells. Crystal energy transmission has a magnetic
polarity similar to the natural aura polarity used in laying on of hands.
Its strong ability to match aura energy and resonate with it makes crystal
a powerful healing tool. Clear quartz contains the greatest human resonance
and the ability to transmit any color, to focus a chosen strand of its
rainbow white light spectrum and use it to transmit, store, duplicate and
magnify color and aura polarity.
An interesting phenomenon happens when you begin to work with crystals
for whatever reason. You will start becoming aware of an energy or force
greater than what you presently contain. This encompasses "that which you
are capable of becoming." It is your perfected self. Quartz crystals, in
their wonderfully helpful way, will help you tune in to this higher aspect
A positive act is to give a friend a quartz crystal. This helps form a
link between you and him/her. It helps you to communicate psychically with
that person. It is also a wonderful way to send healing energies to someone,
especially if you both have similar crystals. A gilt of a crystal instills
a beneficial impact in the receiver.
