6Crystals
In science, a crystal is a solid substance in which the atoms, molecules, or ions are arranged in an orderly repeating pattern extending in all three spatial dimensions. The word crystal is a loan from the ancient Greek word (krustallos), which had the same meaning, but according to the ancient understanding of crystal. At root it means anything congealed by freezing, such as ice. The word once referred particularly to quartz, or “rock crystal”. Most metals encountered in everyday life are poly crystals. Crystals are often symmetrically inter grown to form crystal twins.

Many crystals have healing properties that you can discover. Crystals vibrate to at different frequencies to enhance healing. Crystals are used for healing, meditation, energy work, storing information, protection, grounding, and channeling. Many have specific shapes such as crystal skulls and singing crystal bowls, used for healing, balancing, awakening, and scrying. Crystal scrying deals with the images one sees within a crystal (holograms) and how that helps them shape their destiny at a given time. These images may appear to change in time. Your mind can also project images into a quartz crystal.

They vibrate to different frequencies depending on the crystal, its size and use. People are guided to a specific crystal, determined by the matrix of the person at a given time, and that of the crystal chosen. You touch it, and know it is yours – you are attuned to that crystal at that point in time. Crystals vibrate to at different frequencies to enhance healing. Quartz crystals have excellent healing properties. Quartz also has the ability to transform an imbalanced energy field. When you feel stressed the crystal can balance your energies and revitalize you. Small quartz crystals left in water will ionize the water and is a good drink for healing. Stones are used for many purposes including Meditation, Divination, Healing, magical oil blends or even crushed in some incense recipes. All gems, stones, crystals hold their own energies or “vibrations”. They respond instantly to the expressed intent of your will.

The different shapes of the stones will be an important factor in choosing your stones.
Round – Round shaped gems and stones are a symbol of magic and its workings. The means for the opening of psychic awareness and spirituality. Receptive to all powers. Used in all attraction wishes such as love, money and spirituality.
Square – Square shaped stones are masculine in nature and generally considered to be used for building or creating something new or altering something old. A form of stability and endurance.
Triangular – Triangles are a sign of the three points of humankind; the mind, body and spirit. Able to discern between the four elements. Used primarily for repelling and neutralizing negativity, and for gathering and releasing of all the energies for your intended desire.
Pear – Pear shapes are a combination of both the round and triangle. Used primarily in associations with the element of Water, it is both receptive and projective. A great shape for balancing of emotions or any wish dealing with psych-ism or Faerie Magic.
Rod – Rod shaped or Wand shaped are a sign of masculinity. Also commonly referred to as “phallic”. Project energies, used primarily for a wish for someone, for the intent to be projected towards another.

You can use crystals yourself to heal or find a qualified healer. Most crystal healing is guided to the healer by Spirit who will tell the healer which crystals will be most effective and the patterns the crystals should be placed on or around the person’s body. The length of time used with the crystals will vary with each patient and healer. The healer must determine the person’s frequency and attune it to the crystals that will create healing and balance. All healing is about placing the body in balance. Treatments will vary in length and number of times required. They may not always work.

Owning a crystal that you carry with you or keep in the area you spend most of your time, can enhance the healing after you work with the healer. It’s always good to have a few quartz crystals around your home to balance the energies, even if you do not need healing. Some of the crystals discussed below come in different colors. Crystals can be found raw in nature or cut and polished. They affect each person based on their grids, at any specific time. Crystals and gemstones can be used, or worn, alone, or in combination with other crystals.

Crystals can be placed anywhere, held, or worn as jewelry. They know what they have to do.Crystals are often used by healers to activate, clear, and balance the seven basic chakras.

Related imageA gemstone or gem, also called a precious or semi-precious stone, is a piece of attractive mineral, which – when cut and polished – is used to make jewelry or other adornments. However certain rocks, (such as lapis-lazuli) and organic materials (such as amber or jet) are not minerals, but are still used for jewelry and gemstone rings, and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their lustra or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gemstone.

Stones and crystals are often chosen by color for specific purposes in fact, for many crystal healing systems color is a primary mode of organization and guide to the properties and functions of the stones in treatment. You can use color as a rough guideline to the use of a crystal.The stimulating and healing effects of semiprecious gemstones have been known for thousands of years. The therapeutic use of stones is not a new or alternative healing method. Evidence that gemstones were used to protect, heal, and better peoples’ lives can be found from the most ancient civilizations. From the very infancy of the human race, gemstones have exercised a powerful fascination. The premise behind the use of gemstones for influential energy and healing is that everything on Earth is made with various electromagnetic frequencies. Each gemstone has its own vibration or frequency. When we put different gemstones into the electromagnetic field of our bodies, the stone’s vibration resonates with our own.
The electromagnetic frequency of the gemstone changes – slows down, speeds up, changes pattern, etc. – our own vibratory resonance. The subtle yet powerful result influences the body, mind, and spirit in myriad positive ways. Gems  are precious stones which are loaded with specific energies. Gems may take in different colored rays and filter them all, but finally they keep a specific ray only. For example, Ruby is a gem in Dark Red color. This gem will filter all other colors except Red, which is accumulated into it. When we wear Ruby, we get the Red colored rays being absorbed into our body, and hence the effect of these rays will produce certain results. It has been experimentally proved that the Red color increases Will-power, Anger, Dynamism, Blood flow, and the Soul is strengthened. So it is better if the people with a lack of confidence and with feelings of inferiority wear this gem.
5The area of color healing and other healing and work with colored stones and crystals is a vast area of study. Color is not the only factor or guide to the function of the crystal in healing and other work but it is one of the most obvious guides to use and organization of your crystal companions.
Color vibration creates a clear and direct resonance effect on the energy body and the mind, body and spirit. Much of our response to color is built into our genetic and spiritual blueprint. While cultural interpretations and beliefs about color can vary greatly from place to place and time to time there are many aspects that appear to be almost universal.
We have touched on colors in some other sections of the workshop including those on the chakras and the aura but have not gone into much depth. This Page begins an exploration of   specific colored stones and the meanings and uses of color. This first page on color is primarily about some basics of color theory rather than being about crystals and stones.
Physical color in the environment effects our moods, relationships, and well-being have a huge but often largely subconscious effect on your moods, actions,  and mental emotional states of being and function. Our reactions to colors are led by a combination of biological, physiological, psychological, social and cultural factors.
Colors often have different symbolic meanings in different cultures. For   example, white is the color for weddings in western societies and is for   funerals in traditional Chinese culture; red is associated with anger in America but with happiness in China.

Marketing experts, psychologists, advertisers and designers  have long used color ,to affect us directly .The color in our surroundings has amazing power to affect our moods and decisions. We can use color as a tool to create wellness and contentment, to incite passion or anger, to calm and soothe, to express frivolity or seriousness.

4As a tool for healing, color can be gazed at, beamed as healing light, meditated on, bathed in, worn, and used in art and in ritual such as candle magic and mandala work and painting. Spiritual light and color is used for healing the aura. And the physical body for deepening   meditation and to promote specific effects in the energy field. There are many systems of color healing color is of itself a vital for healing the aura, the physical body and for deepening meditation and to promote specific effects in the energy field.

Colored light is beamed through crystals using a light box or light can be visualized and sent by intention amplified by crystals.

Colors can be run as shakti energies.
Sitting under colored light or shinning colored light on the skin  is called  Chroma therapy.Color healing is a vast area of study with many different theories and practices.In the physical plane color is the result of light hitting an object. The color we see is the frequency of light that is reflected off an object as light strikes it .
Colors that we are able to see form the visible spectrum .The easiest way to become aware of the full spectrum in pure colored light is to take an old cd and hold it in light while watching the play of rainbow color across it   rainbows are, of course a full spectrum and have the range of secondary and tertiary colors as well as the primary colors. Colors react with each other either by harmonizing or contrasting with each other. The color wheel is a valuable tool for understanding color. A color wheel is an image of the spectrum bent into a circle.

The colors adjacent to each other on the color wheel form a related harmonious sequence.  When you are mixing colors of paint or pigments,the Primary colors are Red , Yellow and Blue    red and yellow make orange and they are equidistant on the color wheel   When you are working with light  the Primary colors are   magenta , cyan  and  blue  your computer screen is colored by light  rather than with pigment and the green (as a primary) is  a much lighter yellow green than the emerald or grass green hue  often used as the secondary color  in pigment based color charts.Image result for crystals wallpaper
Primary means that in theory you can mix all other colors from them though  it is not as  simple as it sounds  because  pure red ,blue, and yellow do not exist in pigments .
You cannot mix the primary colors from any other colors.  Orange, green and violet are secondary colors and are made by mixing equal parts of two primary colors.
Yellow and blue make green, blue and red make violet,   red and yellow make orange.

The tertiary colors are mixed from equal parts of a primary and the secondary color next to it on the color wheel.  yellow- green, blue- green, blue- violet, red- violet ,red- orange,   yellow -orange, are the tertiary colors  White things reflect all frequencies of light  black things absorb all frequencies of light.

Complimentary colors are those opposite each other on the color wheel and they intensify each other when placed next to each other.

They can be mixed together to form a neutral gray and when you view a photographic negative you will see the complimentary color of the positive photo image. The complimentary colors of the pigment primaries are

Red compliment = Green              Blue compliment = Orange             Yellow compliment =  Violet.
All colors, including browns, grays, and neutral colors are mixed from combinations of
primary and secondary colors.
Hue is another word for color it is used to describe close or similar colors, scarlet and crimson are both hues of red for example.  Intensity, Chroma and saturation all refer to
how bright a color is.   Vivid bright colors have strong intensity; pale grayed colors are weak in intensity, adding white to strong red creates weak pink, graying a hue by adding the complimentary color also weakens it.  Tone refers to the relative lightness or darkness of a color. When white is added to a color the result is a tint of the color. Pink is a tint of red adding black to a color results in a shade of the color.
Certain color effects seem   universal, such as that of “warm” and “cool” colors. Warm colors generally include magenta, red, orange, yellow, and   yellow green. They speed up our perception of time and produce feelings that are warm, cozy, and inviting. Warm colors tend to make things look near these colors are associated with excitement, happiness and comfort. Cool Colors generally include violet, blue, light blue, cyan and
sea green.   Emotions associated with these colors range from calm and peace to sadness, withdrawal and repression, cool colors create distance.. Red, orange, and yellow (in ascending order) will elevate pulse, blood pressure, and    incite arousal; even stimulate appetite. Blues and blue greens will calm and suppress the appetite, and lend a feeling of peace. Though the exact degree to which you feel these emotions will depend on you.

One of the most common ways for  choosing crystals is with the common chakra color  associations  here is a brief list of the most common associations with a few stones
First chakra
root-Red and or black   Physical and survival issues – might be garnet or
ruby or red jasper and or black hematite and  obsidian .

Second chakra sacral-Orange, Emotional Issues  – carnelian,  fire opal, or fire agate, ,orange jasper

Third solar plexus-Yellow,  mental and will issues Citrine , topaz ,amber ,sunstone tiger-eye

Fourth heart – Green and pink,  love and spiritual issues  malachite -emerald, green calcite ,dioptaise, jade   rose Quartz , Kunzite -pink marble   pink calcite

Fifth throat -sky blue, communication  turquoise,  amazonite, kyanite aquamarine gem silica   (some systems  blue) lapis, sodalite ,blue  sapphire, azurite

Sixth brow – indigo or violet,  intuition  Lapis , Sodalite Sapphire /, amethyst sugulite, lepediolyte, azurite

Seventh crown- violet or clear higher spiritual understanding   amethyst  etc.  clear quartz,  diamond  in  some systems opaque white  stones are suggested quartzite white  agate   etc.
Subsequent color and crystals files will include detail about some of the uses for specific
colors and some of the stones of each color.

Crystal Healing or Crystal Therapy is the ancient art of laying-on-of-stones. Gems, stones and crystals are laid on the body over and around the chakra points. Eachchakra resonates to a particular color, so by laying a stone of that color over the chakra, the chakras open, balance, align and blend with one another.

If you wish to bring the quality of a particular color to the chakra, you may choose a different color. For example, to bring peace and calm to a chakra, use a blue stone such as blue lace agate.

When the chakra system is balanced, the physical body is able to innately self-correct and heal.

Crystals bring color and light into the aura and into the physical body via the chakra system and the subtle layers of the body through the principle of vibration and resonance.

Crystals can also be used in specific grid patterns in various forms of sacred geometry. These sacred geometric grids create pillars of light opening the body to multi-dimensional awareness and understanding.

Used in conjunction with aromatherapy and sound, the color light experience of crystals are deepened and expanded at the same time.

Crystals are one of the tools of vibration and resonance that create sensory healing.

Crystal Therapy is an ancient art, originating some believe in Egypt thousands of years ago. Others believe it is even older, beginning in the ancient civilization of Atlantis or possibly even Lemuria. Certainly, gems were important in Jesus’ day as they are referred to many times in the Bible. Wherever it began, these extraordinary gifts from our precious Earth have once again re-emerged to help us at the dawn of the new millennium, the dawn of our planet’s desire for healing.

Some of those containing lithium, are useful for balancing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual (PEMS) bodies. If one is depressed, they will lift one’s spirits.

If one is agitated, they will calm the nerves. They act as a stabilizer to the entire system.

Most of you know something about stones such as amethyst, rose quartz, clear quartz and more. But many do not know the tremendous potential of the healing properties of those stones containing lithium.

When there are any deficiencies in the energy levels of a Planet in a human being, the related problems concerned to that Planet will result. So it is wise to fill these deficient energies, by wearing gems. This is the route to achieve health, happiness and prosperity in life.Today, semiprecious gemstones are still widely use for their therapeutic properties. Each stone has its own unique characteristics that release specific energies in the body and mind. While the ancients relied on faith, today science has provided an explanation of how gemstones effect our lives:

Image result for chakra and crystalsRuby: Ruby is generally available in dark red, and glows like morning sun. Wearing a Ruby protects a person from afflictions of Sun, heart weakness, headaches, general ill health, eye troubles, blood pressure etc.
Pearl: It is in white color with a streak of oceanic blue. Wearing a pearl protects a person from diseases of lungs and stomach, water-born diseases, emotional problems, and impulsive decisions.
Coral: A good coral will be red in color. It is used to get rid of skin diseases, fevers, accidents, abortions, burns and enmity with others.A Coral increases practicality, quickness in doing the things and vigor.
Yellow Sapphire: It would be yellow or white in color. Yellow is preferred. It is used to get the grace of God, children, education, and high position in job or business. It is used to get success in legal problems, digestion and liver problems.
Blue Sapphire: This is in dark blue or black in color. Nervous problems, delays, serious ill health, diseases of teeth, ears, rheumatism, aging, problems in service and business can be controlled by wearing a Blue Sapphire.
Emerald: This gem is in green color, causing the power of intelligence, presence of mind, right decisions in business, communication, speculation, scientific education. It can be worn to escape from madness, stammering, and nervous problems.
Diamond: This is a very precious stone with bright white color. Delays in marriage, bad married life, diseases of reproductive system, lack of luxuries in life can be overcome by using a diamond. Hardness of diamond: 10, Specific gravity: 3.52, Refractive index: 2.4175.
Hessonite: This is in honey color and eliminates problems like cholera, dysentery, hallucinations, and problems from evil spirits.
Cat’s eye: This is in white color with a circular band around in grass color. It alleviates problems like paralysis, contaminated diseases, infections, intestinal disorders and increases religious nature in a person.
Any gem should be purified and then loaded with positive vibrations of concerned planet, by chanting the relevant Mantra during a period of time. Then it should be worn in a ring to a suitable finger of right hand on an auspicious day. But first of all take the help of an Astrologer to determine which gem is suitable for you. Keep in mind that if you wear an unsuitable gem, you are inviting more problems.
