Introduction to Crystals

It may be difficult to understand how a rock can change your life. The secret lies in understanding that crystals are tools that carry energy available to assist you in making energetic shifts. In today’s article, I’d like to introduce you to what crystals are and how they’re able to assist you.

Mini Historic Overview

Humans have been drawn to crystals for thousands of years. Ancient Greeks and Egyptians, shamans, and specialists in ayurvedic medicine used crystals for physical healing and spiritual development. Kings and queens were guided by shamans and high priests to use them for protection. Watchmakers use quartz to tell time, and scientists use quartz in microchips.

Crystals are formed in the earth’s surface during periods of change — and like everything else in this world, they retain the energetic vibrations of the Divine. We can utilize that energy by wearing crystals, holding them, placing them in our homes, and even carrying them with us.

The science behind crystal energy

Crystals are able to absorb, focus and transmit subtle electromagnetic energy – the field of energy that surrounds people, places and things – because of their crystalline structure. Science has shown that if a crystal is placed in an energy field, it collects that energy and contains it. There are many crystals that are also able to change and transmit that energy too.

We all consist of electromagnetic energy. When holding a crystal, your frequency interacts with the crystal, creating a type of Piezoelectric effect.  Piezoelectricity is the appearance of an electrical potential (a voltage, in other words). Crystals accumulate piezoelectricity. The crystal vibrates and the energy it creates can be transmitted to your own internal energy pathways.

Crystals are tangible forms of energy. Although they are beautiful objects that we can hold, they also hold powerful energetic vibrations that can be sensed.

Crystals are solid symmetrical structures of compacted energy particles, with regularly ordered atoms and molecules, that are packed in repeating patterns which extend in all three dimensions of space. Based on their internal crystalline structures, different crystals are used for different intentions/purposes.

How crystals are used

Crystals can be used to assist us with mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical transformation. Crystals are able to accomplish this because they affect your energy fields. Humans have several energy fields, all originating from and connecting to our chakras.

When a crystal is within your energy field – which is said to typically extend to 3 to 6 feet from your body but can extend further depending on your mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical state – it will affect your chakras. Your chakras then transmit this energy into your energy fields.

Inanimate objects (including places) also carry an energy field and crystals can be used to cleanse and protect these inanimate objects.

Anything made of energy, which is pretty much everything in existence, can be affected to some degree by the energy of crystals.

Add your intentions to the crystal’s energy and you have a powerful tool to assist you in creating the life you want.

Energy is not static or inanimate; rather, it is responsive and dynamic in character. Incorporating a crystal into the energy field (aka the aura) of any person can provide any of the following benefits (not a complete list):

  • cleansing
  • protection
  • emotional stability
  • confidence
  • clarity
  • focus
  • wellness
  • healing
  • the attraction of other energies.

5 Crystals That Pack A Punch

(You’ll find that people use the terms crystal, gem, and mineral interchangeably. I personally ignore the technical differences and focus on the benefits of use.)

  • Selenite – one of the most powerful and one of the more affordable crystals available for cleansing your energy and the energy in your home. Their vibrational energy is so high, they never need to be cleansed themselves.
  • Black Tourmaline – purifies, and transforms dense energy into a lighter vibration. It grounds spiritual energy and can form a protective shield around the body.
  • Hematite – dissolves negativity and prevents negative energies from entering the aura, restoring peace and harmony to the body.
  • Citrine – a stone of abundance. Citrine boosts manifesting intentions to attract wealth and prosperity, success, and all good things.
  • Clear Quartz – known for assisting with clarity of thought, I prefer its feature as an energy amplifier. It will amplify the energy of your intentions and any crystal its placed with.
  • Amazonite – Mercury Retrograde Relief

It’s important to remember that crystals, herbs, singing bowls, incense, etc., are all tools to help you make the changes you seek. You and only you have the ability to change your life. My hope is that WuVala can assist with guidance and tools that you can utilize to make those changes.
