The Father Crystal
Father...he holds us in his strong arms, promising that he will always keep us safe. He throws us up into the air so that we can have the experience of freedom, and then always catches us. He gently pushes us out beyond what we believe our boundaries to be and celebrates us in each step we take beyond them. He protects us from all life’s dangers with a grizzly’s ferocity.
Today we celebrate him.
Not all of us have a strong and healthy father figure in our lives. Someone who models for us, the best qualities of their paternal role. Someone who will make us feel safe, secure and watched over. Someone who we look up to and who by being his best self, inspires us to be our best self.
But here’s the thing...you have access to that strong, loving, guidance—to all the qualities that we hope to have from a father. You can tap into that masculine power (this is not a gender thing—it’s an energetic thing). It lives inside you. It is part of you, whether or not you’ve have had a model father.
The Father crystal can direct us into that energy.
The four P’s of father energy
This is our father’s lineage. The son, the father, the grandfather. The is where we hold the familial stories and the ancient wisdoms and rituals of our family line and our culture. It is also about the masculine bond. The deep connection that comes from blood ties—the innate understanding that these people would lay down their life for you and you for them.
The Father Crystal will put you in touch with your ancient roots, whether you know what they are or not. He will take you deep into your dna to find the hidden stories of your line. He will take you into the strength of the unbreakable bonds of brotherhood and the feelings of unconditional love and support.
This part of the father energy is powerfully primal. There is no line a father will not cross to protect his family. When exploring this part of the Father Crystal, the song Monsters by James Blunt by kept playing in my thoughts—sometimes the crystals share a message this way. There is a part in the song where the father and son’s roles are reversed and the child tells the parent that it’s his turn to chase the monster’s away.
I'm not your son, you're not my father
We're just two grown men saying goodbye
No need to forgive, no need to forget
I know your mistakes and you know mine
And while you're sleeping, I'll try to make you proud
So, daddy, won't you just close your eyes?
Don't be afraid, it's my turn
To chase the monsters away
What I’m receiving from this is that the need to feel protected and also to be the protector is a universal one. It’s one lives in both the child and the parent.
The father crystal will show you how to find your inner protector when battling monsters in the dark (yours or your loved one’s). It will signal safety in your body. It will instantly ease the fear of unknown, hidden dangers.
The father is the hunter. He brings home sustenance. He builds the home that keeps us warm and fills the cupboards with food.
The Father crystal will put you in touch with your innate, abundant nature and ease your anxieties around scarcity and lack.
Father is strength. He carries us when we fall or when we fall asleep. He pushes away obstacles and lifts up the things that are too heavy for us. He chops the wood for the fire and fixes the things that are broken.
The Father Crystal will show you how to tap into your power. It will take you into your body and show you where your strengths are—on all levels—physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. It will show you which parts need to be strengthened and inspire you on how to do so.
More Father Crystals
The father crystals who are singing today are simply a suggestion. Any crystal can potentially be a Father Crystal. A Golden Lion-Heart Opal who was singing just recently is a perfect example. It held the energy of lion and the image of a wolf and was singing of the inner struggle that is part of a life of duality. It whispered to me of a past life in Egypt, specifically a man’s life.
If you want to connect with the father energy, invite in a crystal and then trust the one who shows up for you. If you would like me to listen for one for you, choose a Soul Journey Stone and request a father energy crystals.
