Crystals have been revered for thousands of years for their decorative, healing and protective properties. Amber beads have been found in graves over 8,000 years old and a calcite mirror was created over 30, 000 years ago. One of the earliest written accounts of the use of crystals is in the Bible. The breastplate of the High Priest is described in Exodus as with Aaron was wearing a linen bag around his neck and chest with 12 crystals that represented the 12 tribes of Israel.
In Egypt the use of crystals dated at least 4500 BC. Lapis Lazuli was one of the most sacred and spiritual stones. It’s function is to open spiritual insight and journey on the other world. The traditions associated with crystals moved fr Egypt to Greece, then Germany and India.
Crystals are identified by their structure and mineral content. There are seven crystal systems and are formed from a limited number of minerals that bond differently to create the various types, but it is the internal lattice, rather than the outward form, that determines crystal type and what a crystal is called. Crystals can absorb, conserve, focus, emit energy especially on the electromagnetic field waveband. Knowing the chemistry of a stone means that you know specific attributes. Copper-containing crystals are powerful energy conduits that work quickly to heal joint pain and arthritic swelling, lithium-based crystals lift depression and those with iron can give strength.
Crystals were created as the earth cooled and continued to metamorphose and reform as the earth underwent eons of geological change.It contains the record of the development of the planet over millions of years. Crystals are regarded as the earth’s DNA and indeed many native peoples call them the brain cells of Mother Earth.
Cleansing and Activating Crystals:
Crystals absorb energy, that means they are very effective in soaking up vibrations negative or positive from the air and people around them. So it needs cleansing, recharging and activating dedicating to working for specific needs as soon as possible. Crystals also need cleansing after wearing or healing.
Crystals that can not be damaged by water can be held under a tap or immersed in salt water. You can smudge or pass them through the light through a candle or visualize them surrounded by light that purifies or reenergizes them. Placing the crystals in the light of the moon or sun for few hours recharges its batteries and gets ready to work. Citrine, Kyanite and Azeztulite are among the few crystals that never need cleansing.
Crystals need to be activated and programmed to start working.
1. Hold the crystal in your hands. Picture light surrounding it and formulate your intention for the stone. Have a focus and clear intention.
2. Ask Archangel Metatron to activate and infused your intention to the crystal.
3. Ask the Deva spirit of the crystal to receive the activation and to be programmed in its crystalline body.
4. Thank Archangel Metatron and the Deva spirit of the crystal for coming and assisting you in your ascension process.
