Attuning to a Crystal
CONNECT WITH OUR EARTH
We are all connected to the earth and that is why we are instinctively drawn to crystals. With our wonderful modern lifestyles we rarely have physical contact with our world. How often do we actually feel the earth beneath our feet? Sometimes we feel that we are missing something from our lives but don’t realize what. It may be as simple as making that connection with the earth. One way we can do this is simply by picking up and touching a stone. The crystal is a natural model of perfect balance and harmony. When we attune to a crystal, we are connecting to that perfection within ourselves.
SONG OF STONES
Crystals affect each of us in a unique way, according to our vibration as well as to our openness and willingness to experience their gifts. I have found that once I have heard my crystal’s song [attuned to it] and have received its gift, it is mine for always. Crystals help us to connect to our essence, and that is where true healing begins. They not only reflect light, but our inner emotions as well. They are mirrors to our souls.
Everything in existence is in a constant state of motion and has its own unique vibrational energy. Crystals and minerals grow deep down within the bowels of the earth absorbing, over thousands of years, the universal life force, as they take shape. They form under the very highest energy conditions. Their energy is powerfully concentrated as well as very pure. These energies carry the very imprint of the creation of the world and represent the highest energy to which we can attune. Among minerals, crystals have the purest and most beautiful molecular structure. Crystals emit a natural energy beyond the visible energy of light. A crystal’s orderly and symmetrical structure allows it to radiate its energy in a consistent and steady manner. One of the reason’s we are attracted to them is that their energy helps us to enhance our own. One cannot see the “glow” or “sparkle” emanating from within certain crystals without realizing the true potential of the energy within them!
We are attracted to things that sparkle. The more they glitter and glow, the more we feel their pull. We see their fire and we remember that we once shone as bright. We keep them close to remind us that we can once again be that light.
There is a teaching that through our relationships with others, we see what it is we need to see within ourselves (to heal). Working with crystals is no different. Our relationship/work/experience/play with a crystal helps us to see what we need to see at that moment. A difference between a relationship with a crystal or a relationship with another person is that the crystal, as far as I am aware, does not have an ego ... no agenda ... no expectations ... no resistance ... no judgement. It has not been influenced and does not influence. It is there in friendship and support.
I believe this is the magic of the crystal's healing reputation. The crystal allows us to see what needs to be seen in a safe place of acceptance. This is where "healing" takes place, in that safe place free from judgement.
