Crystal Protection

Black Tourmaline have the ability to absorb electromagnetic pollution (radiation from cellphones, laptops, microwaves, tv). They put out pure, clean energy. Wearing Black Tourmaline, Shungite, Obsidian, Smoky Quartz and Jet around your neck or as a bracelet protects you against electromagnetic emanations, including cellphones and computers.

Smoky Quartz crystals have a practical cleansing purpose. Place one between you and a source of electromagnetic smog or geopathic stress or position it on your desk. An Amethyst geode has the same effect. Place a Fluorite cluster or a piece of Lepidolite beside it, and you will be amazed at the difference in how you feel.

Wifi radiation alters human DNA with constant exposure over time leading to dehibilitating effects: tiredness, depression and finally dis-ease. Minimize wifi by switching off cellphones and tv especially at night when your body sleeps and refreshes. Walk in nature in silent without being wired-up to music especially as your ears feed frequencies directly to the brain, run on the treadmill without answering calls or checking wats up, eat dinner with all cellphones and TV’s switched off. Get up from your desk after 40 minutes and sit in the sun for a dose of Vitamin D – excellent for counteracting electromagnetic pollution. Working from devices that are connected to cable or telephone line further eliminates wifi pollution.

Shungite Pyramids and Organites are also excellent. See information on these electromagnetic vacuums on the crystal page of Rockchic website.

Simple Chakra Healing


Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning, “Wheel or Circle of Light”, and refers to one of the 7 major energy centers, which spin like wheels through and around the body. Each one of these energy centers has a specific purpose in the healthy functioning of our bodies.

Each chakra varies in colour, size or shape, rotation or spin, and the amount of energy that is produced by the chakra. These characteristics all affect the auric field. The chakra is “blocked” when the energy flow is restricted – thereby causing dis-ease.

Five of the major chakras are in alignment with the spine, while the sixth is located between the eyebrows, and the seventh, just above the crown of the head. The size of the chakra is dependent on the individual’s personal development. The colours of the 7 major chakras affect different parts of the body.

ROOT OR BASE CHAKRA – RED (garnet, red jasper, ruby, red agate, tigers eye)

How to clean your crystals


Cleansing your crystal with water and salt
With the exception of a few water-soluble minerals, each new crystal should be washed before you use it. Use a little soapy water to remove dust and fingerprints. Water will also cleanse your stones of energy imbalances. Another method is to hold the stones in cold running water and then leave them to dry naturally. Salt water is often suggested as a medium for clearing crystal energies. Salt will however, damage the surface of many softer stones. Dry sea salt piled around each stone and left for a day is a good alternative.

Cleansing with nature
Leave the crystal in sunlight and moonlight for a twenty-four hour period or in a rainstorm for just two or three minutes. The day of the full moon is good because the moon ries around the time the sun sets and so you a continuous flow of energies. Put the crystal in a pot of herbs associated with general healing – lavender, sage or rosemary. Leave it for a day and wash off any soil with running water. Leave the crystal in a stream for an hour.

Cleansing with crystals
Wrap the crystal you have used for healing with a large unpolished piece of amethyst in dark silk. Leave the crystals in a closed drawer to rest and recharge.

The Power of Crystals

powercrystalThe power and beauty of crystals and other stones have long been recognised from the ancient civilisations to present day. Crystals have always exerted a powerful force both in the physical and metaphysical worlds.

Their uniqueness imbues them with magical power: the power to protect, to enhance, to strengthen, and to uplift. They have been used as amulets to ward off harm, as talismans to encourage virtues, as magical guardians to heal, and as tools to interpret messages from the spirit world. They have an attraction that transcends time and space.

Quartz crystals grow in a hexagonal (6 sided structure) sloping towards a point at one end. Crystal points may be totally clear and transparent, or they may contain streaks, lines, rainbows, water bubbles or other inclusions. They may appear cloudly if they are grown in a place where it freezes in winter. Optical clarity usually has little to do with a crystals quality and ability to amplify the subtle energies.

Quartz crystals are a gift from the earth. They have the ability to amplify or strenthen the things in you that are positive and can help you put away things that cause you fear and anger. They can strengthen your ability to be a loving person and can enhance your abilities to enjoy life and accomplish the things you want in life. They can amplify INTENTION, reduce stress, help with CENTERING (balancing), stengthen healing abilities and surround you with PROTECTION by amplifying white light.

To select a crystal, first put yourself in a calm space. Hold the crystal in your right hand with the point towards you. Feel it physically. Be open to sensations like tingling or change in temperature. Also feel the crystal emotionally. Think of the purpose you want it for and see if you feel attracted to it. Be more concerned with how it feels than how it looks. Allow the crystal to pick you by interacting with it in this way. Go with your initial feeling.
