Lately, I have been beginning to understand crystals in a whole new way. While I always knew they were powerful healers and carried a pure energy, it seems that crystals are so much more than just this.
In fact, it almost seems like each crystal carries its own personality and perhaps even its own consciousness. Could it be possible that a crystal has a mind of its own?
If you had asked me this question a few months ago, I probably would have struggled to wrap my head around it, but now I really wouldn’t be surprised if crystals did carry their own sort of consciousness.
As I have been grieving the loss of my sister, crystals have become a good ally to me, and working with them during this period of grief has helped me to understand them on a whole new level.
Here are 5 magical abilities of crystals that I have come to observe-
1.) Crystals Have A Consciousness Many believe that crystals hold their own type of consciousness. While this level of consciousness is nowhere near that of the average human, it is believed that crystals, just like everything else in this Universe, has a “mind of its own”.
We may not be able to understand or comprehend the “mind” that each thing in this Universe possesses, but it is very likely that everything in this Universe, including crystals have some form of consciousness.
According to Nikola Tesla- “In crystal we have the clear evidence of the existence of a formative life-principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal it is none the less a living being.”
While you don’t have to treat your crystals like a pet, when you care for them and treat them with respect they do work better and more efficiently- try it.
2.) Crystals Can Communicate Crystals are well known for their ability to heal, but they can actually also communicate messages.
Crystals are like storage devices and hold information that can be downloaded to the user. After working with a particular crystal, you may find that you gain new insights or receive new information.
One way that people have been using crystals for communication is through the use of a pendulum.
The crystal goes at the end of a chain or string and can be dangled over the body to locate areas of tension, pain and stagnant energy. Wherever the pendulum is drawn to, that is where the most healing is needed.
Crystal pendulums can also be dangled over a map to locate things/people, or to even find the perfect destination to travel to. You can also ask crystal pendulums yes and no questions for guidance.
3.) Crystals Can Be A Portal I once received a crystal that was used by a psychic medium. She felt that she was done with the crystal and had passed it on to me. I put the crystal by my bedside that night and had the strangest dreams! I was travelling through different dimensions meeting all of these Divine beings and sitting in on meetings about all things relating to Spirit, it was an amazing experience!
When I woke up in the morning I realized that I had forgotten to cleanse the crystal and it probably still had her energy on it. I contacted her and discovered that she used the crystal as a portal to access higher dimensions.
That night I decided to test my fate again and slept with the crystal by my bed. I travelled again through different dimensions in my dreams and met all sorts of light beings.
It was an awesome experience, but after the second night, I knew however that it was time for me to cleanse the crystal and make it my own. After cleaning the crystal, the dreams went away, but from that moment on I realized just how powerful crystals can be!
4.) Crystals Can Travel I have heard countless stories of people losing crystals only to have them turn up months or years later out of the blue!
I also once sent a crystal to a friend in Australia, but when she opened the envelope, the crystal was missing! To this day, I still have no clue where that crystal is, but I guess wherever it went is probably where it needs to be.
Crystals are attracted to particular places and people and it’s almost like they have the ability to will themselves to get where they want to go. You may have experienced this for yourself and have felt drawn to either buy a crystal or give a crystal away to someone.
Parting with or losing a crystal can be hard, but when its time for the crystal to go, it really seems that it has a mind of its own.
5.) Crystals Can Change Colour After my sister passed away I bought myself a beautiful piece of apophyllite. It was perfectly clear and I just felt really drawn to it. I cleansed the crystal and then started sleeping with it next to my pillow.
After a few nights, I noticed that the crystal started to develop all of these brown spots. At first I thought the crystal had gotten dirty, but then I realized that the brown spots were appearing on the inside.
After doing some research, I discovered that crystals can change colour depending on the energy of the person that is using it.
Brown spots represent dense energy that is being transferred into the crystal as part of the healing process. The crystal was helping to heal and cleanse my grieving and the brown spots felt like proof of that.
Crystals can also get brighter, darker or develop rainbows depending on the energy of the person using the crystal.
I am going to keep working with the apophyllite crystal to see how it continues to change through the months- I will keep you updated on those brown spots!
