- Introduction - Crystals are one of the
oldest living forms they have been on the planet since
the beginning of time and subsequently have an enormous
amount of knowledge, which if we know how, we can access
and use to benefit the world we live in. Everyone should
have there own small crystal kit which they can add to
over time, a collection which can be used for healing, cleansing or protection of people and places. it's more
personal if you chose each crystal yourself rather than
purchasing someone else's recommendation.
- Common types and
properties - Here is a list of common stones click on
them for a description of some of there properties
however I would like to say that stones work differently
with each individual.
Obviously different crystals appear in different shapes and sizes either naturally as quartz points, clusters and
amethyst geodes or as worked pieces such as spheres,
points or tumbled stones. The inherent properties of the
natural and worked crystals are the same however the
strength and energy may differ to a degree.
- Agate boji stones
- Clear Quartz
- Less common stones
Crystal:- Using water – cold tap
water would be adequate however a clear stream would be
excellent and would have the advantage of charging your
crystal as well, place the crystal in the flow of water
for at least 2-3 min, holding the thought of the crystal
being cleansed, if the crystal requires a particularly
strong cleanse fill a bowl with saltwater (seasalt) be
careful that its not a crystal that reacts with saltwater
( such as moldavite) then leave in view of the sun &
moon for a minimum of 24hrs.
A favourite way is to have white
sage incense and hold the crystal in the smoke or waft
over the crystal – this is my regular method for
crystals within my house it has the added bonus of
helping to cleanse the room as well. You can bury the
crystal in the garden for at least 24hrs – this is
good to cleanse and recharge with a strong earth
you’ve no garden get a bucket with sandy soil and
some small fragments of crystal if possible and bury the
crystals in there for 24hrs kept in view of the sun and moon. For a lighter and regular cleanse, acquire a largish
amethyst (clear quartz will suffice) cluster and place
the crystal on that for 24hrs preferably in view of the
sun and moon.
- Helpful Crystals:-
Chalcedony – Astrological signs of Cancer &
Sagittarius. Appears in different forms (onyx, agate).
This stone is thought to be sacred by Native American
Indians and used in their ceremonial activities, These
type of stones help to balance the energy of body, mind
emotions and spirit. Nummit - Astrological signs of Sagittarius. Excellent
for chakra work and removing
energetic blockages, repair the auric fields, helps to
allow a person to release from there own imposed limits.
- Where to buy them -
I'd recommend the method of go looking and see what
catches your eye, you'll know if the crystals are
"happy" by the way they shine & sparkle. If
you go to a shop are the crystals dull? or the people
seem harassed and troubled, move on. IF you have specific
requirements I am able to supply most types and designs
at a reasonable price have a look at my online

Scrying - It's unfortunate that most people
associate scrying with the atypical Madame zelda in her
tent with a crystal ball at the seaside(no affence
intended to anyone). However scrying is another tool
which we can use to tune into our own phychic abilities,
other items can be used but because I'm a crystal fan and
have little experience from other methods crystals it is.
Unfortunately it maybe difficult or expensive to purchase
a crystal, but you don't have to go out and purchase a
large quartz crystal ball. To start it's probably better
to obtain a crystal which is darker and more reflective,
something like polished obsidian, tigers eye or amethyst
with work well. I find it best to practice at dusk
prepare yourself and your surroundings as if you were
going to meditate, calm your mind and gaze at the crystal
- don't focus at a specific point but as if you were
looking at the or behind it. You should be patient
because you'll need lots of practice. Do this for
initially 5mins a day gradually increasing the time to
15-20mins. After a few weeks you may notice certain
things such as different colours, sparks of light, mist
or fogginess, now your getting somewhere. Hopefully after
further practice images may appear for some the images
may appear in your mind they maybe clear or misty but
again further practice may see sharper images or for some
symbols. Your not home and dry yet as whatever you see
need to be interpreted simuliar to dream interpretation
getting hold of a dream symbol book(see bookstore)would
be a good idea. The thing is what you see may have
happened, is about to happen or won't happen for some
time only through more practice and intepretation will
you be more confident in what you see...
Skulls - Obviously there is a lot of
mystery surrounding crystal skulls - how were they made ?
by who ? and what for ? Presently we can only piece
together bits of information which have come to light.
Some time ago, long ago several crystal skulls came into
being it is said from the Atlanteans. The skulls are in a
way containers storing information - lots of information
and they were passed to representatives of several
indigenous tribes living on the earth at that time for
safe keeping. These people were told that one day in the
future a time will come when the crystal skulls will be
re-untied with each other and the information contained
with be accessible by the people of the day. There is a
very small number of crystal skulls known to the general
populace today. The British museum have one which is
life-size and was kept in the museum of mankind until
it's closure, it was alleged that the skull kept secure
within a glass case used to move without any external
manipulation. Alas the skull is now hidden away somewhere
for the time being. It was acquired from Tiffany's NY in
1898 the oldest documentation regarding it states it was
taken from Mexico by a spanish soldier.
In 1993 a person wishing
to remain anonymous donated a large crystal skull to the
Smithsonian Institue in Washington, the skull was alleged
to be cursed. There are few if any archaeological records
regarding these skulls however many people believe them
to have originated from central america, the Mayan,
Aztecs, Mixtecs etc... this does add meaning to the
Atlantean theory of the indigeous tribes taking care of
them. Although some think that the high quality of the
carving etc was superior to what ancient civilisations
could perform however I really don't think we can under
estimate the 'ancients' abilities for one moment. Anna
Mitchell-Hedges owns a gorgeous very clear crystal skull
which is anatomically corrrect and even has a detachable
jaw bone. This skull was found by her and her step-father
(an explorer) when in Belize at the site of Lubaantun a
Mayan temple in ruin. Anna has loaned the skull to
several experts for examination and it's been found to
show no tool/carving marks at all! The maker remain a
mystery, it was determined by Hewlett Packard that the
type of quartz the skull is composed of is of the same
quality used today within the electronics industry -
silicon chips etc...
