Before you begin to work with crystals, it is essential to know how you can use them in the different forms of healing, divination, and understand the benefits from the various vibrational energies they give off. The Earth came into existence millions of years ago and is built up of minerals that are the basic building blocks of solid Earth. Each mineral has a definite chemical recipe and can be identified by its crystal form (known as its habit), colour, hardness, surface shine (luster), and the way in which it breaks. These stones are highly prized for their beauty and rarity.
The vibration we talk about when we say gemstones or crystals are alive is the powerful energy they vibrate at -literally. All crystals and gemstones vibrate to what is known as the piezoelectric effect, discovered by French physicist and chemist Pierre Curie (1859-1606). What happens in a technical sense is that when mechanical stress is applied to the crystal, a voltage is produced across the crystal’s surface. In fact, when you hold a crystal tightly in your hand and “warm it up,” you are doing precisely that – applying stress to that its electromagnetic force comes alive. This effect is reversible, and if the polarity of the voltage is alternated, the crystal will rapidly expand and contract, producing a vibration. This is the key to the way quartz watches work.
Crystals have been an essential part of every culture’s fascination with the Earth’s incomparable riches and power. It is the power we are going to learn to harness for yourself.
Watching for Sentimental Gems newsletters and joining the Crystal Club on Facebook we will talk about the various ways crystals and gemstones can be used for divination and healing. Plus we will talk about the history and scientific facts. There are beyond thousands of types of gemstones, crystals, and rocks. There are endless amounts of learning to be had about gems. Bonus we also share and talk personal enlightenment.
The first introduction to using gemstones is manifesting with crystals. It is straightforward, and they are fantastic tools; you don’t need any unique skill or pre-knowledge you need to be willing to spend a few moments getting to know your crystals and following the easy, step-by-step instructions that accompany each crystal profile. Manifesting is the law of attraction. However, manifesting is not something you do – it is what you are. Manifesting is an outward expression of your inner being. It makes visible your background thoughts and feelings and expresses your core self. We all manifest every second of every day. When each thought, emotion and belief that passes through us, we create our reality, whether or not we intend to.
The principles of manifesting are the result of thoughts and feelings projected out into the world. The more concise us the intention and the more directed the though, the more favorable the outcome is. Thoughts and feelings are vibrations that attr4acat, whatever we wish to manifest. Hence the support of crystals to reach an optimal level of magnification to come to fruition.
Choose the crystal of which you identify with and confirm it is correct for the purpose you intend to manifest with it for. Before a crystal works with you, it needed to be dedicated to your highest good and activated to manifest your wishes. Sit quietly with your crystal and state your intention several times, either in your head or out loud. Now visualize or feel (the art of knowing), what you are manifesting. You will intuitively know when your crystal is charged, you might feel a vibration coming from it, or you might “just know” it is complete. Attune to your crystal; your powers work together in synergy. And enjoy just “being,” enjoy the peace, enjoy the quiet, and connection.
If you find you need audio guidance to manifest or to get into the Meditative state to connect, you can search for audio recordings that help guide your attunement to the specific manifestation property.
KERRI‘S TIP – I like to reflect on my goals with crystals, each month (sometimes during the week or a particular day I may switch things up), I will have a specific intention I want to manifest I will gather all the stones that I know will help me attune with to help manifest what I seek. For example, I am in the space of attracting abundance and business guidance from my guides. So on my desk, I have stones to help me connect with my guides. Particularly Amethyst and Desert Rose. I also have the stones to help me attract money, as I am in a state of growing my business so I can offer more value to those I emotional touch or connect with. Just having those stones in my visual presence help remind me to be in that state of constant manifestation, remember the principles of manifesting is the result of thoughts and feelings projected out into the world. Also, note you do not need to use grids to benefit from crystals, it is merely connecting your higher self.
What are some ways you use crystals in your day to day manifestation practices? Is there a specific element you want to manifest but want a little more guidance on what to use? Leave a comment below, and I will respond.
