These gifts from the earth can help increase your vibrations, open your third eye, protect your spiritual energy and charge up a room with positive vibes. Crystals have been used throughout the ages as talismans for protection, adornments in temples, and symbols of loyalty in love. Crystals are used in watches and computers, but they can also be used to jump start your intuition. Crystals work within our auric fields and serve as a conduit for energy flow. You can use crystals to enhance your meditation practice. Lapis Lazuli, Amethyst or Clear Quartz are wonderful for meditation. Crystal healers teach that when we wear or carry crystals with us, they sync with our energetic fields and help us to awaken to our intuition.
Crystal scrying is an ancient technique that dates back almost 5,000 years. It involves starting into a crystal allowing one to access the unconscious mind and higher levels of intuition. Queen Elizabeth’s I’s astrologer John Dee used an Obsidian for scrying. Jean Dixon, who predicted John F. Kennedy’s assassination, used a clear crystal ball.
In addition to using crystals for meditation and scrying, they can also be used for creating manifesting grids. If you’re working on attracting more financial abundance, for example, you can create a grid with crystals that represent abundance such as green aventurine, citrine, moss agate and pyrite. Write an affirmation on a piece of paper such as “I am a magnet for financial abundance” and place it in the center of the grid. The crystals help charge the energy you’re sending out to the universe.
