Perfection, much like beauty really is in the eye of the beholder + where as some may argue there is no such thing as perfection, I believe everyone has a crystal(s) that is perfect for them.
So, how do we choose the perfect Crystal?
More often than not Crystal selection is approached methodically but invariably the intuitive process takes over. After determining an area of our lives we want to heal, heighten or amplify we search out the Crystal associated with these aspects only to find ourselves drawn to an entirely different piece. It’s like the heart + the head have a totally different take on what Crystal is right for you. From a mundane perspective this can be frustrating, as it appears to confuse what should have been a simple task. No one of us can have ALL the Crystals ALL the time, so, for those of you who find the selective process at times daunting + a tad overwhelming I wanted to share this :
Crystals are highly intuitive + they resonate with our sometimes latent but always innate ability to channel + manifest what is best for us at any given lifestage. Crystals reach out to us fortuitously + when this happens try not to ignore the Crystal that speaks the loudest. Often, before we can progress in a certain direction we need to 'heal' an aspect within ourselves. That aspect is sometimes veiled, like a forgotten song. The Crystal that speaks to you, no matter how unexpectedly, is asking to you to remember + to revisit something. Trust the methodology + be confident in a Crystal's ability to select you.
A Crystal's most innate + treasured ability is to heal. Whether our wounds are physical, mental or emotional, it is unlikely that in this human condition we call 'this life' we are ever completely 'whole'. We are in fact shapeshifters, in a constant state of flux. Morphing from thought to movement, coloured by emotion + back again. Yet, no one loop is ever the same. We don't return to the person we woke up to - not really. Something, whether mentally, emotionally or physically will have altered - if only slightly.
Motivated by emotional impulses, enamoured by our affections, enlivened by sensitivities, dampened by despondency + ultimately defined by our responses to stimuli, we are constant only in the fact that we change.
We cultivate likes + dislikes from moment to moment, shaping opinions as if it were clay in our hands. On a cellular level we are also in constant motion - what a truly fascinating thought!
Is this you ask, where Crystals come in?
I believe so.
Crystals align with all of the above. Every aspect of our interchangeable, oscillating energy, our physicality's, our mental facilities + our emotions can be aided, guided + resolved by Crystal guidance. Crystals attune with our Higher Self + if used to their full potential can act as receptacles for conscious energy.
So, what is conscious energy you ask?
Consciousness is the field of one’s awareness. Energy is what we consist of. In biological terms it is our cellular makeup + our biological structure. It is our bones, our blood + everything in between. In spiritual terms it is our magnetism, prana, or chi. Energy in its finest form is spirit, also known as ether + is in tune with vibrations that divide into the spirit of peace, the spirit of love, the spirit of power + the spirit of insight.
Crystals are energy too + it is this very energy by which the magic works. In essence we are ALL made up of energy, this is simply the metaphysical explanation of all living things. In fact all we perceive as matter is made up of energy - even seemingly inanimate objects such as Stones + Mountains are made up of energy + transmit a specific frequency. Frequencies are like language, except in this case, words are best understood as 'vibrations'.
Like all matter (including ourselves) the mineral kingdom is composed of minute particles called atoms. These are essentially the buildings blocks of what we know to be the physical plane, however under closer, microscopic inspection these basic units of energy are not really matter at all, but subtle wave lengths known as vibrations.
Light, which is the highest form of energy known to the Universe is received, contained, emanated, refracted + reflected by Crystals. Based on a Crystal's inherent atomic symmetry they become a conduit or a channel for not only transferring energy but aligning + perfecting all that passes through it.
Crystals come to us for a reason + if that reason is simply for the eyes to rejoice + through the process of that we subconsciously attune ourselves with pockets of joy + slivers of peace then the Crystal has succeeded.
Crystals are capable of working their magic regardless of whether a person 'believes' in their power to perform or can fathom the 'science' behind how they are capable of doing so. But intention + believing only strengthens their resolve. Just having them in your presence will positively enhance your life. There is solace in surrounding ourselves with beautiful things. They have the power to bring calm + to nourish us. They are a portent for Gratitude + life simply made better when our immediate environments are radiant + charming. They will augment positivity + dispel or nullify negative vibrations by purifying the area around them + realigning everything in their presence with an uplifted energetic resonance.
Spiritual growth is highly individualised + unique journey + Crystal's know this. Their attainment can act like the links of a chain, each flowing into the next making the piece that has gone before it stronger + more beautiful. Thus, Crystal collections are deeply personal. They form a lattice around us + become something akin to cherished friends. Like a path paved by many stones, each one that has gone before has played a role in the place we stand today.
