Rocks hold unique energies within them. This is why many of us are attracted to rocks. When visiting the gem and mineral shows I am like a kid in a candy store. I can feel the strong energy of all the different stones as I walk down the aisles. I believe that everyone can feel the energy, it’s just how tuned in you choose to be. You may begin to feel a warm tingly feeling all over your body exposed to so many gemstones in one place. You are experiencing their energy. There is an enormous amount of energy held within the stones.
My utmost fascination has always been with the energy of crystals. Their healing energies have been utilized for thousands of years. I am sure the healing energy is what most of us pick up on intuitively. Many cultures such as the Tibetan monks, the Druid priests and the Native Americans have used crystals for healing purposes and for their sacred ceremonies. Quartz crystals can do so much for you without you even realizing it. The ancient rocks are a silent power source energizing many things on earth without receiving the recognition they deserve.
As we are go about our busy lives we rarely stop and think the computer that we use every day contains a crystal to make it function. Tiny crystals could hold the key to massive computer memory in the future as scientists are working on this very thing. The radio you listen to is powered by this gem. These ancient rocks have had a huge impact on our modern civilization. The power in Quartz crystal is called silicon dioxide. Silicon dioxide becomes electric when heat and or pressure of any kind is applied to them. The crystals release an electrical charge which can be captured and stored. Because the storage is constant and accurate, we as a society have been able to use the crystals in many technologies such as lasers, optics, ultrasounds, communications systems and more. They are a conduit of energy.
Therefore, it is not surprising that crystals can heal your energy field. Quartz crystals are millions of years old and have been used for healing purposes long before we invented the watch or LCD (liquid crystal display) television screen.
By holding a crystal in your hand and mediating on a specific intention, the information that you are sending through thought waves meditation can be held within the crystal and the frequency maintained. The crystal will amplify whatever intention you put out to the Universe and transmit that intention. The energy is similar to radio waves. Isn’t that a cool thing to know?
All stones have their own unique healing energy. Every precious stones energy has a unique healing purpose. I have spent years collecting different stones for various healing properties. Stones can assist with your physical and spiritual health, your financial wellbeing, your romantic life and even deter negative energies.
I happened to stop by a gem and mineral store one afternoon to gaze at the stones. I walked into the store and began to look in the glass case at the gems. The woman behind the counter looked at me and said very matter of factly, “You have many envious people around you and they are sending you negative energy.” I was stunned that she had picked up on this so quickly. She knew quite a bit about energy and had felt this vibe from me while I was in her store. We had never met before but she said to me in a very matter of fact manner, “There are a lot of jealous people around you, and I feel you need protection.” People can send negative vibes to you as I have spoken about in previous chapters. She suggested that I carry a black obsidian with me in my purse or better yet wear one. I decided I would give it a try. I chose an obsidian stone whose energies felt good to me when I held it in my hand. I plopped it in my purse and away I went.
Knowing the power of the stones, I should not have been surprised that I recognized a change almost immediately. It repelled the negative energy back to the people sending it out. Now I had learned that the stone obsidian is for protection for sensitive people. The stone repels negativity, pain and any unwelcome feeling from others. At this point I was intrigued, and started to read about other stones and what their energy could do.
One of my favorite stones is rose quartz, referred to as the stone of love. The energy of rose quartz will enhance love for one’s self or for a loved one. The vibrations from the stone are a soothing love vibration. Placing a nice sized Rose quartz in various rooms in a home can fill the entire home with gentle love energy. Wearing Rose quartz will generate calming energies when meeting with people. When you have a tough meeting or you encounter someone in the work place who is difficult to deal with, wearing the stone will work wonders to keep the energy level calm. I have included a few stones that I thought would interest you;
Rose quartz is the healing stone for your heart. When you wear a heart pendant made from the stone it will enhance your love vibrations. The Chinese say that if you place a rose quartz under the bed where the woman sleeps the man will be kept faithful to her. I have not tried this but I believe it’s a great idea to have one in your bedroom. So many stones can help you. Here are some of my favorite stones and the energy that they hold.
-Green calcite is a healing stone for the physical body. Great for emotional balance and to release stress. This gem brings fresh energy to a room.
-Sodalite is a deep blue stone that clears the mind and diminishes your fears. Sodalite enhances insight, intuition, observation and creativity. Since it reduces stress and anxiety, this stone allows you to see your reality from a higher level and better perspective.
-Citrine awakens the powers of the imagination, activates the thinking process and enhances mental clarity. It is yellow in color. Citrine has the ability to get rid of negativity. This stone attracts prosperity and is one of my favorites to wear.
-Moldavite derives from a large meteorite that crashed in the Czech Republic. Scientist have varied theories of its origin, some say it is a fusion of meteoric material and earthly rock. Some suggest that the material is of extraterrestrial origin. There are accounts that the Holy Grail cup was carved of this green glass stone. The stone assists in spiritual evolution, spiritual protection and is used with other stones to enhance their energy. It is a very powerful rock. When you hold the stone in your hand it becomes very warm. You can actually feel the energy, be careful as it can be intense. You have to be careful not to carry this stone with you too often as the energy may be too strong. Moldavite also holds an affinity to the heart chakra.
-Lapis lazuli, deep blue in color, was worn by the pharaohs of ancient Egypt. This beautiful blue gem is often times called the royal stone. This gem carries the vibration of the inner queen/king that is in all of us. Powdered lapis was used as eye shadow by Queen Cleopatra. Lapis activates the third eye chakra and also activates the psychic centers and enhances your intuition.
Lapis Lazuli is referenced many times in the Old Testament and is the Latin word for stone. Lapis is found in Afghanistan and has been exported to the Mediterranean and South Asia since the Neolithic age. The stone was used in these times for jewelry and for seals.
Isaiah 54:11, 12
“Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted, I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with lapis lazuli.” I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels
Lapis lazuli enables you to identify your gifts and abilities. Known as the stone of self-knowledge and reflection.
Cleansing your stones is a must. There are several ways to do this. I like to put mine outside in the sunshine. I set them out and leave them all day to soak up the sun’s soothing rays. I feel that this not only cleanses them but reenergizes the rocks. Another method is to soak them in spring water for 24 hours. Sea salt is a quicker method if you are using stones for healing. Some people do not like the salt water as they feel it interferes with the energy of the crystals. I personally have had no problems soaking them in sea salt thus far.
The energy of the stones will heal your chakras. Here are the stones that I use for healing each energy center in the body for your reference.
Root Chakra- Hematite
Sacral Chakra- Carnelian
Solar Plexus Chakra- Citrine
Heart Chakra- Rose Quartz
Throat Chakra- Sodalite
Third Eye Chakra- Tiger Eye
Crown Chakra- Amethyst
I carry several stones with me. I sometimes think the security at the airport must look twice at all the rocks in my purse when I pass through. But they have never say a word.
