Created over the millennia, crystals harness the energy of the Earth and the universe. Miniature storehouses, crystals were born as the Earth cooled, and record the development of the Earth over millions of years. They can be regarded as the Earth's DNA. Some crystals grew in chambers deep underground, while others were subjected to enormous pressure and transformation. The method of formation affects the crystal's appearance, their energetic properties, and the way they function.
The power of crystal healing is that each crystal carries a unique vibration. As Albert Einstein is thought to have said, everything in life is vibration. The vibrations that crystals hold can realign and recalibrate your energy with theirs, helping you to raise your vibration and reach a higher state of being.
One of the first pieces of scientific evidence relating to the power of crystals is the work done by IBM scientist Marcel Vogel. While watching crystals grow under a microscope, he noticed that the shape of the crystals took the form of whatever he was thinking about. Vogel hypothesized that these vibrations are the result of the constant assembling and disassembling of bonds between molecules. He also tested the metaphysical power of Clear Quartz and proved that rocks can store thoughts similar to how tapes use magnetic energy to record sound.
According to the laws of physics, everything in the universe vibrates and has its resonant frequency. Due to their structure and composition, crystals emit vibrations at a constant frequency, meaning that their vibrations do not change. Crystals have vibrational frequencies that range from deep and earthy (lower) to fine and cosmic (higher), and some exhibit both. This is powerful because when a crystal comes into contact with a lower vibration, it raises the vibration of that person or thing to match its own. When a crystal comes into contact with your body or your energy, it attunes you to its higher frequency, which allows you to move past mental, physical, and spiritual blockages. This boost of positive and uplifting energy can be the difference between darkness and light.
Crystal works similarly to your intentions. They hold strong and positive energy, amplifying and magnifying the energy of your intention so you can manifest it faster and more effectively.
Intentions are one of the most powerful ways to use crystals. Intentions help you to focus on a specific aspect of your life and commit to creating a change. When you combine an intention with a crystal the crystal will hold your intention and remind you to stay on track, this simple practice gives you the direction and something tangible to make it a reality. The great thing about intentions and crystals is that there is a crystal for every intention, they can help you with every facet of your life.
Some examples might be if you are looking for wealth and abundance, you might use Jade or Pyrite. For love, Rose Quartz is a good option. For health, try Turquoise. The list goes on and on. And you don't need to read a book to know which crystals are best for your intentions, if you feel drawn to a particular crystal, you can use it, and focus on that crystal paired with your intention.
Your intentions and the crystals that you use for them will differ, just like the way you work with them will differ. Some intentions will take longer than others to work on, such as creating success or finding new love, while others such as releasing anxiety will work more quickly. The more that you work with crystals the more they will become a part of your routine and daily practice.
