Crystals have been used by our ancestors for centuries, often worn as jewellery and used as protective talismans and peace offerings. Thankfully the 'trend' for crystals is growing rapidly, it does mean the cost is constantly increasing because of the increase in demand, but the massive plus is that there are now far more people investigating and wanting to understand the benefits and to incorporate them into their lives. It is super exciting that many people are benefiting from their healing properties daily!
Quartz is one of the most common crystals and makes up approximately 12% of the land surface and 20% of the Earth’s crust. It is used widely today in technology and computers, electronics and information storage, for watches, oscillators in radios, pressure gauges, the study of optics and so much more. The skeptics should remember this when finding humour at those who are working with what nature provides rather than what is regarded as the 'norm' - well in this life time! This is set to change as more and more people seek alternative healing modalities and improving their diet and mindset to heal rather than prescriptive medicines to put a plaster on the issues rather than discovering the root cause.
Crystals are not only beautiful but reconnect / reinforce our connection with Mother Earth, the Universe and all the abundance available to us. The larger the piece, the stronger the energies but small is still beautiful for many types of gemstones, especially some of the stronger ones i.e. Malachite, Kyanite wands and Lapis Lazuli. Once you make a conscious effort to open your heart and mind to the healing powers of crystals the journey is wonderful, mysterious and enlightening!
A simplistic way to explain Crystals to skeptics is, as it is possible for crystals to communicate through computer chips, then it is possible for their vibrational energy be transformed to use, through, carrying, wearing and storing them around us. It is important to cleanse them, as we should our homes and ourselves and we can discuss this later in the course. Crystals have been used for thousands of years and have a powerful connection to the Earth, to energy and the vibrations contained within, making them ideal for universal healing.
IBM Scientist Marcel Vogel conducted a lot of research about the power of crystals and his is one of the main pieces of scientific evidence still used today. He received 32 patents for his numerous inventions whilst working at IBM for 27 years. He discovered that when watching crystals grow under a microscope, that they took the shape of whatever he was thinking about.
Marcel hypothesised that the vibrations resulted from the constant assembling and disassembling of bonds between molecules. He further tested the metaphysical power of quartz crystal and proved that rocks can store thoughts similar to how tapes use magnetic energy to record sound. Hence why they can aid with so much, including the removal of negative thoughts, feelings and habits. There is a great deal online about Marcel Vogel's numerous research papers and discoveries.
Albert Einstein said everything, just like sound waves, everything in life is made up of vibrations, your thoughts match the vibrations of everything that manifests in your life. This is why crystals work stronger for those who truly believe in their healing properties. They still work for skeptics too though!
Bringing crystals, a part of nature, into your daily life, means you are reconnecting with the natural rhythms of the earth. Everyone's vibration is different, so be sure to select those that you are most drawn too each day, as you are guided by your intuition. Crystals are tools to help you realign your energy and by setting an intention per crystal, they aid in the visualisation and manifestation of your goals and dreams. They are a sure fire way of allowing a consistent practice of belief and they amplify the intention you choose to set for them.
Crystals help to shift your focus from the issues outside of you, to what is going on within you and the thoughts and habits that can sometimes be blocking our path. Healing from within is THE only way forwards and will be truly life changing for you, as you learn to fully open up and work with the energies around you. If you are interested in learning more about these amazing healing gemstones, then have a look at my Introduction to Crystals Course. We just need to book a 3.5 hour slot and then I can share my knowledge with you.
Have an amazing day.

N.B. Be sure to cleanse your crystals.
Once you have purchased them, cleanse in sea or himalayan salt. *Check they are compatible, a few should do not be cleaned this way then:
Regularly, either charge and cleanse them:
Under the light of the full moon
In the sunshine, preferably outside for up to 5 hours
With sound, such as singing bowls and listening to Beethoven's 5th Symphony (it has the right vibrational sound needed for clearing)
Using sage smoke / palo santo / copal / Incense to cleanse and reenergise them
