Exploring the Power of Crystals and Chakras

The Snowflake and our Crown Chakra Sahasrara

The beauty of the snow flake, each one completely different from the other.  Like us, we are each different from one another and create the crystalline structure, the vibration of pure love and gratitude – Crystal Clear Energy.

I have often thought that Quartz is actually fossilized water.  When we think that our own bodies are made up of roughly 70% water, we can see why we resonate so vibrantly with quartz.  Our own thoughts can create a positive or negative ripple throughout our bodies by resonating the liquid crystals within us as proven by Dr. Masaru Emoto, and as discussed by Robert Simmons in their research and books.

Goddess Shakti, also known as our Kundalini Energy, has finally come to Shiva, her eternal dance partner; their dance floor is the entire Universe.  This awakening in the Crown Chakra is remarkable when all 6 Chakras below are in balance. Enlightenment can be experienced in this place.  Pure bliss, love and joy surround every part of you.

Auralite 23 Pendant $60.00

This Chakra represents thought, consciousness, knowing, transcendence and meditation.  Our complete understanding of the entire universe around us and our place within it is here in the Crown Chakra.  The Pituitary Gland known as the “Master Gland” is linked with the Crown Chakra and regulates all the other Endocrine Glands maintaining homeostasis throughout your entire body.

The element ‘Thought’ is related with the Crown Chakra.  In the past blogs and newsletters I have indicated the speed of the elements associated with each chakra.  The speed of thought cannot be measured, unlike the Third Eye’s ‘Light Element’ of almost 300,000 km per second.  Our thoughts enable us to connect with the Divine Intelligence, Source, Spirit or God.  When we pray or meditate using our Crown Chakra we become the source of manifestation and creation. In other words, we realize that the Divine Intelligence, Source, Spirit and God is within each one of us, making us “The Creator”.  We leave behind the cognitive mind and open ourselves to the transcendent mindfulness of our soul.
I also believe that particular crystals and minerals can help with our transcendent meditation of the Crown Chakra – our expansion into the Universe.  The stones that I would suggest are: Amethyst and Clear Quartz (Crystal).  Quartz has always been a long time favourite. It comes to us in such variety, shape and sizes.

Clear Quartz Crystal Pendant $30.00 each

Quartz activates our Crown and Soul Star Chakras.  This stone vibrates at a remarkably stable and high frequency making it ideal for use in time measurement and in elevating our spiritual consciousness to new levels, allowing us to cross time, space and dimensions.
Quartz Vibrates at 32,768 Hz.  Quartz has been used in our modern age to measure time by using the piezoelectric effect of pinging the crystal tuning fork within all digital devices like watches and cell phones.  This constant frequency also enhances the pineal and pituitary glands bringing homeostasis to our entire endocrine system and wellbeing to our body.  When our bodies are in balance we are able to elevate to new levels on all planes of existence.
Quartz is known as a remarkable healing stone; brain function, thoughts, meditation, and communication all benefit the carrier.  Quartz works well with most other crystals by enhancing their powers. Double terminated quartz are said to be the most powerful in sending, receiving, storing, activating and amplifying energies, but all quartz crystals are fully capable of this power.

Sahasrara Chakra and its Crystals

Shakti (Kundalini) has finally come to Shiva, her eternal dance partner, their dance floor is the entire Universe.  This awakening in the Crown Chakra is remarkable when all 6 Chakras below are in balance, enlightenment can be experienced in this place.  Pure bliss, love and joy surround every part of you.

This Chakra represents thought, consciousness, knowing, transcendence and mediation.  Our complete understanding of the entire universe around us and our place within it is here in the Crown Chakra.  The Pituitary Gland known as the “Master Gland” is linked with the Crown Chakra and regulates all the other Endocrine Glands maintaining homeostasis throughout your entire body.

The element thought is related with the Crown Chakra.  In the past blogs I indicated the quickness of each element associated with each chakra.  The speed of thought can not be measured, unlike the Third Eye’s Light Element of almost 300,ooo km per second.  Our thoughts enable us to connect with the divine intelligence, source, spirit or god.  When we pray or meditate using our Crown Chakra we become the source of manifestation and creation, in other words, we realize that the divine intelligence, source, spirit and god is within each one of us, making us “The Creator”.  We leave behind the cognitive mind and open ourselves to the transcendent mindfulness of our soul.

I also believe that particular crystals and minerals can help with our transcendent meditation of the Crown Chakra.  The stones that I would suggest are: Amethyst and Clear Quartz (Crystal).  Amethyst is my “go to” stone because of its majestic violet colour.  I am also born in February making this stone my birthstone, naturally I am drawn to this stone.  I love that it is found in abundance near my home, and I don’t have to travel far or pay high prices for it.

You can learn much more in my workshops that I conduct regularly at different yoga studios, or from my home.

Why are we drawn to Crystals, can they help?

Crystals have been used for 1000’s of years by Shamans and Ancient Healers to heal their bodies and protect their environments.  Found around the globe, in every religion and spirituality, Crystals have fueled our minds and bodies for generations.

Have you ever wondered why you were drawn to a particular Stone or Crystal?  For me, it has always been Amethyst.  Not just because of it being my birthstone (February), but for the spiritual protection that this stone offers.  The connection with our higher purpose and direction.  Well at least this is what amethyst offers me.

What crystals catch your eye? hopefully not just diamonds, although they are very powerful stones too.  Maybe it is Rose Quartz (as it is Valentine’s Day), Citrine or Aventurine.  The quartz family of crystals offer us a huge variety of energies and each with their own beauty.  As an avid rock collector and jewelry maker, I am always asked which one is my favourite.  All of them, I answer.  Mother Nature has taken the time to create such beautiful specimens for us to wear and enjoy that  no one could single out just one stone to focus all of their love on.  Each day I pick from a large bowl of crystals, a stone or two to carry in my pocket.  These little additions help balance my day and ward off anything that may cause in imbalance in my daily routine.

My Belief is that quartz is fossilized water.  The large amethyst geodes that come from Brazil and other countries are actually an egg shell of Agate Stone (which is porous) that allows water to enter the hollow area of the stone (Geode) the water brings elements from the periodic table that allow the quartz crystal to grow into one of many different types, in this case Amethyst.  Look at this photo, and you will be able to see the agate shell I am talking about.

Amethyst offers us so much.  Aiding our meditation, strengthening our immune system and brain activity, healing, our bodies, love, inspiration and intuition, lastly amethyst can help rid our bodies of addictions (what ever addiction you may have).  Remember that we are all addicts in one way or another, maybe you are addicted to love, or maybe like me, addicted to Crystals especially amethyst.

But there are so many other stones that can offer healing and balancing of your Chakras.  For those people that spend loads of time in front of their computers, (like me) may I suggest a stone that can help absorb the EMF (Electro Magnetic Frequencies) that are emitted.  Galena, and Iron Pyrite are two in particular, and of course there are others.  These two work for me and are stationed near my desk.  My next blog will be exclusively on EMF and Crystals. (Stay Tuned)

The Frequency of Quartz

How important is quartz to our survival?  Each day we rely on this abundant crystal found around the world in more ways than one.

For those that know a lot about this powerful crystal, here is a refresher, for those that know a little, enjoy the information and be amazed at this beautiful semi-precious gemstone and what some would say has “miraculous abilities”.

Before we begin, I think I need to explain the Piezoelectric Effect.  The Piezoelectric Effect means that some crystals generate a current as they are deformed.  Quartz is one of them.  Striking quartz will cause it to deform and produce a current of electricity.  The same applies when you apply voltage to a quartz crystal, it will deform, we call this the Reverse Piezoelectric Effect.

Now that we understand the Piezoelectric Effect we can dive deeper into the importance of this crystal and how it has a firm grip in our society, and defines who we are.

Now you might be thinking about tuning your piano with this little guy, similar, but this one oscillates at a much higher frequency than the tuning forks that are tuned to the 7 notes of the western music scale.  Quartz Tuning Forks like this little one, oscillates or vibrates at 32,768 Hz precisely.  Your digital watch’s circuitry measures  the oscillations or vibrations of the tuning fork to maintain time and to ensure that your time piece does not run slow or run fast over longer periods of time.

Quartz Tuning Fork from within your watch.

Quartz is used because it is very stable, both physically and mechanically, continuing to work in all types of extreme conditions found on earth.  We can find these little tuning forks in every digital watch, cell phone, GPS units or anything else that measures time digitally.

These devices help wake us up in the morning by signalling an alarm, let us know of our daily appointments, prevent our cakes from being burnt in the oven, ensure that we get to our job interviews, essentially molding us into who we are.  Can you imagine if you were late for something because your time piece ran slower than everyone else’s.  Could we find our friends at prearranged meeting times and locations? I think not.  Our lives would be brought back 100 years, searching for the closest sundial to coordinate your day properly.  All kidding aside, our lives today would be totally different without the wonders of Quartz and the Piezoelectric Effect.

So why are we attracted to quartz?  Not only is it the largest single mineral found on earth, it comes in a large assortment of types; Amethyst, Citrine, Rose and Smoky Quartz, Clear Quartz sometimes called rock crystal, these are just to name a few.  Here are a couple of photos of various Quartz Stone Pendants

These different quartz are connected to our various chakras throughout our body.  Clear Quartz can represent our Crown Chakra or the Soul Star Chakra (a universal chakra above our heads).  Clear quartz assists us to decipher the information that is being presented to us, the Universe is filled with coded messages that we have difficulty understanding if we have not prepared our body, mind and spirits to do so.   Our daily meditation, or yoga practice can also bring awareness to this vast wealth of information available to us.

Here is a beautiful piece of art that I make to help balance a room or environment to facilitate an opening of your Crown Chakra bringing awareness to the Soul Star Chakra and the symphony of intelligence around us.

Whether you are wearing clear, rose, smoky, rutilated, tourmalated, or any other piece of quartz in its wonderful abundance of colours, you are sure to feel connected, you will discover your place in the universe, a sense of belonging and knowing that you are part of the beautiful web of the world we live in.  This gemstone is more than just semi-precious, it is absolutely precious to all life on earth in one way or another, may it bring you Peace, Joy, Happiness and not to forget, Timeliness.
