Many different cultures have
utilized the power of crystals for as long as humans have inhabited the earth. The
oldest legend leads us all the way back to Atlantis where this civilization used
crystals as beacons of light that would communicate telepathically to their universal
forefathers. It is said that the reason this evolved civilization was destroyed
was the misuse of the awesome power crystals hold for egocentric purposes. Survivors
of Atlantis continued to perpetuate the knowledge of crystals in Egypt, South America,
and Tibet. They built pyramids using the crystalline theories. The perfect geometric
shape duplicates the laws of crystal physics and channels high frequency universal
energy onto the planet. It is believed that the Great Pyramid in Egypt was originally
capped with a giant crystal to assist in the grounding of this cosmic force.
It is written in Exodus
in the Bible that a breastplate made of 12 precious jewels, combined specifically
together in four rows, worn over the heart would endow Aaron with the power of God.
It is not known what 12 stones were used in the construction, however, it is recorded
as having incredible spiritual powers.
Kings in ancient India were
advised to collect the very best gems to protect themselves from harm. As early
as 400 B.C., astrologists made elaborate observations on the origins and power of
stones. In fact, they advised people struck with misfortunes to wear different crystals
to counteract the negative effects of the planets.
Gems and crystals have long
been associated with royalty. They were laid in swords, embedded in thrones, and
worn in crowns. When the tomb of King Tut of Egypt was opened, the amount of gems
and crystals was astonishing.
Mayan and American Indians
have used crystals for the diagnosis as well as the treatment of disease. Mexican
Indians believed that if you lived a good life, your soul went into a crystal when
you died. If someone was fortunate enough to find that crystal, it would speak directly
to their heart, heal, guide, and make their dreams come true.
The power and potential of
crystals cannot be overstated. They can be used in meditation to develop the intuition
and learn from the higher senses. I must issue a warning that true intentions or
humanitarianly pure intentions must be used when working with crystals or some believe
the power can be turned against the user. The following is a list of a few of my
favorite crystals to work with. From time to time I will add or update this page
as I have has time to experiment with certain crystals in my healing practice, so
you should check back periodically.
