The 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.
WHAT IS QUARTZ CRYSTAL?
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 cloudy 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.
WHAT CRYSTALS DO?
Quartz crystals are a gift from the earth. They have the ability to amplify or strengthen 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), strengthen healing abilities and surround you with PROTECTION by amplifying white light.
SELECTING A CRYSTAL
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.
