How Do Crystals Work?

Updated: Jun 7, 2023

Crystals have been used by our ancestors for centuries, often as protective talismans, worn as jewellery, and for peace offerings. They are nature's medicine and can help us with a multitude of emotional, physical and mental issues, when we trust and believe in their powers. Thankfully they are now trendy, which does mean the cost is constantly increasing with the growth in demand, but the massive plus is that far more people are investigating their properties, wanting to understand their uses, and how to incorporate them into daily lives. I am very exciting so many of you are benefiting from their healing qualities.

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 much more. The skeptics should remember this when finding humour at those who work with what nature provides, rather than what is regarded as the 'norm', the western medical system. For some this is changing, as they seek alternative healing modalities, learning to improve their diets, and mindsets, for healing rather than listening to the outdated societal systems of untruths. Prescription medicines put a plaster on the issues, rather than discovering the root cause, which can then magnify dis-ease, generating further problems.

Crystals are not only beautiful but reconnect and reinforce our connection with Mother Earth, the Universe and all the abundance available to us. Often, the larger the piece, the stronger the energies, but small is still beautiful for many types of gemstones, especially some of the stronger ones. 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 that as it is possible for crystals to communicate through computer chips, then it is possible for their vibrational energy to be transformed for our use through carrying, wearing and storing them around us. It is important to cleanse them, as we should our homes and ourselves. Crystals have been used for millennia's for their powerful connection to Mother Earth, Father Sky, the universe as a whole and to the energy and vibrations contained within and around us, making them ideal for quantum 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, 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 the skeptics though too, just not in such powerful ways.

Introducing crystals, a vital 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 to each and every day, be 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 trust in nature's abilities to guide us. They amplify the intention you choose to set for them and assist you in thriving beyond anything you have ever imagined possible.

Crystals help to shift your focus from the issues outside of you back 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.

N.B. Be sure to regularly cleanse your crystals, once you have purchased them, and then with each moon cycle:

  • Cleanse them in the sunlight | wash them in sea or himalayan salt** or the ocean

  • Charge them in the moonlight

  • Program them - give them a 'job' - what you would like their help with at this time

Alternative options:

  • With sound, such as singing bowls, or listening to Beethoven's 5th Symphony (it has the right vibrational sound needed for clearing)

  • Use sage smoke / palo santo / copal or incense to cleanse and reenergise them

**Check they are compatible, a few should do not be cleaned this way then:
