HOW CRYSTALS GROW
Generally, quartz crystals grow in a hexagonal (six sided) structure, with additional faces sloping towards a point at one end. A crystal withe these features is itself called a point. Points may be totally clear, or may contain streaks, rainbows, water bubbles, or other inclusions. They may also appear cloudy if they have grown in a place where it freezes in the winter. Optical clarity usually has little to do with the crystal's quality and ability to amplify subtle energies.
SELECTING A CRYSTAL
To select a crystal, first put yourself in a calm place. Hold the crystal in your hands with the point towards you. Feel it physically. Be open to feelings such as tingling, changes in temp. Also feel the crystal emotionally. Think of the purpose you want for it, such as: healing, intuition, dream work...and see if you feel attracted to the crystal. Be more concerned with how the crystal feels to you rather than how it looks. Allow the crystal to pick you by interacting with it in this way. And remember to go with your initial feeling. If you need a specialized crystal to work with, consider one of the types below.
CRYSTALS WITH SPECIAL PROPERTIES
have five edges surrounding the largest sloping face. These crystals strongly amplify the feminine energy. And can help you get in touch with the 'female' or unselfish side of yourself, no mater weather you are a man or women. These crystals are useful in balancing your male-female energy if the female energy is suppressed, or if you need a greater balance of female energy for any reason. Isis crystals put you in touch with the power of the goddess.
For men, the Isis crystal will help you become more in tune with your feminine side and tobecome more aware of the aspects of women that you may find more troubling.
For women, the Isis crystal will help you regain some of the power and energy that society has taken from you. Teaches that feminine is not weak. Anyone doing healing work with another person needs Isis energy to be effective.
The Isis crystal should be carried or held when dealing with issues that are emotional and difficult.
EXERCISE: Isis crystals can be used to project nurturing energy toward another person. To do this, sit quietly with the Isis crystal in your hand with the point directed away from you. Visualize the person that you wish to help and visualize white light going from the point of the crystal and surrounding the person.
To nurture yourself, sit with the Isis crystal in your hand with the point directed towards you. Visualize a white light going from the point of the crystal and surrounding you. After doing this you should feel strong and cared for.
have seven edges surrounding the largest sloping face. These crystals are especially useful for obtaining information from deep within yourself or from sources that are outside your normal realm. They can help you draw on the knowledge and information that is provided by th universe, and can aid you in getting help from a higher source. A channeling crystal can be used anytime you are seeking answers or help from outside of yourself. You must 'listen' very carefully when using this crystal and realize that answers can come from many sources.
Communication with Guide: A channeling crystal is a line of communication with sources outside yourself. Generally, the main source is your guide. A guide is a non-physical entity whose primaty job is to look after you. Every human being has a guide. Guides are sometimes called other things, such as conscience, or angels, but they are always with us. We must learn to listen to what they have to say. Your guide will never tell you ehat to do, or interfere in other ways with what you want to do, but your guide is there to help you find answers foe yourself. And you can use your channeling crystal to let your guide be your conscience.
A channeling crystal can only be used by the person holding it. In other words, you can't send the energy to someone else in order to let him receive the information directly. However, since guides communicate readily with each other, you can become good at getting information to people by asking your guide to give you the needed information for someone else, and then relaying it to the person. This is how you channel information for others. Channeling crystals amplify the quiet inner voice of your guide, and can be a big help in learning how to channel information, both for yourself and for others.
EXERCISE: sit quietly holding the channeling crystal in your hand and focus on or consider the problem or area that you need help with. 'Listen' carefully but remember that the answer might not come immediatly. Often, in the beginning, you may find that you wake up some morning and seem to 'Know' what to do. When you are working on a problem, keep the channeling crystal with you as much as possible and keep it close at night. Sometimes that is the only time the answers can come clearly when you are just starting to open your eyes.
Have eight edges surrounding the largest sloping face. They are quite rare and not always easily available. Grounding is the ability to deal with practical matters in a realistic way. For example, in dealing with the question 'how am I going to make a living', a grounded person will consider his skills and decide how best to use those skills to make a living. An ungrounded or 'spacey' person does not like to deal with the practical or realistic aspects of life.
Grounding crystals help you deal with practical matters in a realistic way. They connect you with the earth and keep your energies from being scattered. They help you think clearly and express yourself clearly. When used in meditation they help you from a strong connection with higher knowledge, but keep you grounded so that you can apply that information in practical terms. When using a grounding crystal to work through a personal problem, remember that it will require you to look at the truth of the situation and compel you to deal with the truth.
It is sometimes difficult to recognize times when you need this crystal because not being grounded can be a way of life for some people. These days, it is commonto be a little spacey because of things going on in our world. When you are having trouble concentrating, feeling reluctance to tackle a task that needs doing, or find yourself running in circles but accomplishing nothing, you need a grounding crystal.
EXERCISE: Sit quietly holding the crystal. Visualize yourself firmly rooted to the earth. Breathe deeply and visualize the roots going deeper into the earth. Continue this exercise until you feel calm and peaceful. When you are having a 'spacey' time be sure to keep your grounding crystal close to you. Some people may need to keep it with them most of the time.
You can sometimes help another person become more grounded by sitting quietly, holding your grounding crystal, and visualizing that person being firmly rooted to the earth.
has a small diamond shaped face which takes the place of one of the corners where two of the parallel faces usually meet the coresponding two sloping faces. Window crystals are introspective crystals in that they help you see what is inside yourself. They help bring things to the surface so you can see them and effectively deal with them. If you are having problems and aren't sure why, a window crystal can be a good help.
Windaow cryatals are used for working within yourself to deal with problems and changes that must be made in your life. They are used in meditation to help you solve problems that are troubling your inner being. For example, if you are very jealous of a friend, you can use a window crystal to work within yourself to find the reason and deal with it.
Think of a window crystal as a window into your soul. These are very personal crystals, and when one comes into your hands, it is intended to help you specifically.
EXERCISE: Sit with the crystal in your hand and concentrate on whatever there is within you that needs dealing with or changing. Just sit quietly and allow your mind to go where it wants to go. If you aren't sure what changes you need to make, sit with the crystal and ask it directly to help you find the areas in your life that may be causing you problems that you are not aware of.
This crystal can be used when trying to help someone else solve problems. If a friend comes to you to talk about a problem have him hold the window crystal while you talk. It can help him open up.
have a pyramid shaped indentation or elevation that appears to be etched on one of the sloping faces. These are fairly rare, and often the pyramid will not be noticed until the crystal comes into the hands of the person it was meant to work with. Sometimes the pyramid can disappear and sometimes more pyramids show up. Each of these crystals has its own special lesson to teach, usually the lesson the person most needs to learn.
Record keepers differ from window crystals in that window crystals help you look inside yourself to let you see various things you need to learn, while record keepers deal with a specific lesson that you need to learn. A record keeper will often pass from your hands very quickly once the lesson is learned.
Carry your record keeper or put it close to your bed so that it can work with you. It can also be used for meditation.
Some crystals have several special characteristics, i.e. an isis with a record. In this case there is a specific lesson to learn that deals with the feminine side of your energy. If you have an isis with a window it means that you need to look inside to find the areas in your feminine side that are causing you problems.
have two terminations (points) at the same end, which have developed from a single base. You can tell a twin crystal from two crystals that are simply attached to each other, by the fact that both parts of a twin crystal are exactly parallel to each other, and have no boundary between them in at least a small region of the crystal. These are wonderful crystals to use when dealing with 'relationship' things. They can help you gain insight into the underlying problems in a relationship, and help work through them. They can generate very positive energy towards improving a relationship. This works for any kind of relationship, not only man-women relationships. A twin with a rainbow can be very effectively used to project healing energy into a relationship or to keep a good relationship strong.
When you are having a problem with a relationship sit quietly with the twin and ask for help. Remember, that answers come from many directions.
Twins are personal crystals as one of the twins is very closely tuned to your energy, so it is not possible to use this crystal to work for others in relationship matters.
DOUBLE TERMINATED CRYSTALS
are crystals that have points on both ends, allowing energy to flow readily in both directions. Double terminated crystals strengthen energy flow, and are especially useful when you need to share or exchange energy between you and another person. They are useful when you are working to help other people, for example in massage counselling, where energy needs to flow in both directions. In these situations, energy flows towards you when you tune in to a person to find out what the person needs, and energy flows from you when you give the person the needed healing energy. Double terminated crystals are very important to people doing healing work for themselves or others. They also teach sharing through energy exchange.
EXERCISE: If you are feeling out of balance with the world, sit quietly and hold the double terminated crystal in your right hand. Visualize white light flowing into the first point, through the crystal and out the other point directly into your body.
If working with someone else, visualize energy flowing into you through the top of your hesd, down your arm, through the crystal, and into the other person. This can be done while you are with the person or it can work from a distance.
If you have children, try using this crystal to send positive energy to the child when the child is upset or angry. It can have a very calming effect on the both of you.
have a rainbow reflected from within the crystal. Usually they are best viewed in sunlight. These crystals are especially good as meditation crystals for working deep within the subconscious. they work particulary well to lighten the mood for people experiencing sadness, grief or depression. Just holding a rainbow crystal can lighten your mood. Rainbow crystals are also very good at drawing negetivity by letting it sit in the sunshine for a while.
EXERCISE: Rainbow crystals bring joy into your life. If you are sad or depressed sit and meditate on the rainbow. It can help lighten your mood. If working with another, let him hold the crystal if he is with you. If he is not with you, hold the rainbow and visualize white light leaving the rainbow and going to him.
CRYSTALS WITH BABIES
are crystals that have tiny crystals growing inside a larger crystal. These are very good for people who have had traumatic childhoods, physically or mentally. They are helpful for people who are blocking painful memories. They help bring the cause of pain to the surface and allow the person to successfully deal with it, while shielding that person from the pain those memories can cause. These crystals work well for people who are working through current family problems.
Work slowly with this type of crystal so things can be cleared at your own pace. You may not feel inclined to work with it at all in the beginning. Don't force yourself. When you feel ready, you will find yourself drawn to that particular crystal. You may have this crystal for years before you use it.
Also, sometimes crystals come to you so that they can go to someone else. For example, someone might receive a crystal with babies, have it for some time and not be drawn to it at all. Suddenly they will have an urge to pass it on to someone else.
You can use this crystal in meditation or just keep it close to you. Just be prepared to deal with whatever comes up. Try to have some sort of support around you if you are going to work with this crystal.
