Reiki and the power of the soul and quartz / amethyst pointers

Reiki

is a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Since originating in Japan, Reiki has been adapted into varying cultural traditions across the world. Reiki practitioners use a technique they call palm healing or hands-on healing by which a “universal energy” is allegedly transferred through the palms of the practitioner to a patient in order to encourage healing.

Reiki is considered pseudoscience. Clinical research has not shown Reiki to be effective as a medical treatment for any medical condition. The American Cancer Society, state that Reiki should not be a replacement for conventional treatment.

Etymology

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the English alternative medicine word reiki or Reiki is etymologically from Japanese reiki  “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign”, combining rei “soul, spirit” and ki “vital energy”—the Sino-Japanese reading of Chinese língqì  “numinous atmosphere”. The earliest recorded English usage dates to 1975.

The Japanese reiki is commonly written as レイキ in katakana syllabary or as 霊気 in shinjitai “new character form” kanji. It compounds the words rei  and ki . Ki is additionally defined as “… spirits; one’s feelings, mood, frame of mind; temperament, temper, disposition, one’s nature, character; mind to do something, intention, will; care, attention, precaution”. Some reiki translation equivalents from Japanese-English dictionaries are: “feeling of mystery”, “an atmosphere  of mystery”, and “an ethereal atmosphere ;  a spiritual  presence.” Besides the usual Sino-Japanese pronunciation reiki, these kanji 霊気 have an alternate Japanese reading, namely ryōge, meaning “demon; ghost” .

Chinese língqì 靈氣 was first recorded in the  Neiye “Inward Training” section of the Guanzi, describing early Daoist meditation techniques. “That mysterious vital energy within the mind: One moment it arrives, the next it departs. So fine, there is nothing within it; so vast, there is nothing outside it. We lose it because of the harm caused by mental agitation.” Modern Standard Chinese língqì is translated by Chinese-English dictionaries as: ” spiritual influence or atmosphere”; “1. intelligence; power of understanding; 2. supernatural power or force in fairy tales; miraculous power or force”; and “1. spiritual influence ; 2. ingeniousness; cleverness”.

Origins

According to the inscription on his memorial stone, Usui taught his system of Reiki to more than 2,000 people during his lifetime. While teaching Reiki in Fukuyama, Usui suffered a stroke and died on 9 March 1926.

Research, critical evaluation, and controversy

Basis and effectiveness

Reiki’s teachings and adherents claim that qi is physiological and can be manipulated to treat a disease or condition. The existence of qi has not been established by medical research. Most research on Reiki is poorly designed and prone to bias. There is no reliable empirical evidence that Reiki is helpful for treating any medical condition, although some physicians have said it might help promote general well-being.

Scholarly evaluation

Reiki is used as an illustrative example of pseudoscience in scholarly texts and academic journal articles. Emily Rosa became the youngest person to publish in the medical literature at 11 years old when her school science project was published by the Journal of the American Medical Association demonstrating that Reiki pracitioners could not detect the alleged “life force” under experimental conditions.

Rhonda McClenton states, “The reality is that Reiki, under the auspices of pseudo-science, has begun the process of becoming institutionalized in settings where people are already very vulnerable.” Ferraresi et al. state, “In spite of its  diffusion, the baseline mechanism of action has not been demonstrated…” Wendy Reiboldt states about Reiki, “Neither the forces involved nor the alleged therapeutic benefits have been demonstrated by scientific testing.” Several authors have pointed to the vitalistic energy which Reiki is claimed to treat. Larry Sarner states, “Ironically, the only thing that distinguishes Reiki from Therapeutic Touch is that it involves actual touch.”

A guideline published by the American Academy of Neurology, the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine, and the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation states, “Reiki therapy should probably not be considered for the treatment of PDN .” Canadian sociologist Susan J. Palmer has listed Reiki as among the pseudoscientific healing methods used by cults in France to attract members.

Hospital usage

In April 2016 Reiki treatments were being made available at St. Mark’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. Utah. “We have two reiki masters if this is something patients are interested in,” said Rachel King, the hospital’s marketing coordinator.

Issues in the literature

One systematic review of 9 randomized clinical trials conducted by Lee, Pittler, and Ernst  found several issues in the literature on Reiki. First, several of these studies are actually funded by the US National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Second, depending on the tools used to measure depression and anxiety, the results varied and didn’t appear to have much reliability or validity. Furthermore, the scientific community has had issues in replicating the findings of studies that support Reiki. The authors of the review also found issues in reporting methodology in some of the literature, in that often there were parts left out completely or not clearly described. Frequently in these studies, sample sizes are not calculated and adequate allocation and conceal procedures were also not followed. In their review, Lee, Pittler, and Ernst  found that studies without double-blind procedures tended to exaggerate treatment effects as well. Additionally, there was no control for differences in experience of the Reiki administers and they found that even the same healer could produce different outcomes in different studies. None of the studies in the review provided rationale for the treatment duration in such that there is a need for an optimal dosage of Reiki to be established for further research. Another questionable issue with the Reiki research included in this systematic review was that no study reported any adverse effects. It is clear that this area of research requires further studies to be conducted that follow proper scientific method, especially since the main theory on which the therapy is based has never been scientifically proven.

Safety

Safety concerns for Reiki sessions are very low and are akin to those of many complementary and alternative medicine practices. Some physicians and health care providers however believe that patients may unadvisedly substitute proven treatments for life-threatening conditions with unproven alternative modalities including Reiki, thus endangering their health.

Catholic Church concerns

In March 2009, the Committee on Doctrine of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops issued the document Guidelines for Evaluating Reiki as an Alternative Therapy, in which they declared that the practice of Reiki was superstition, being neither truly faith healing nor science-based medicine. Since this announcement, some Catholic lay people have continued to practice reiki, but it has been removed from many Catholic hospitals and other institutions.

Quartz varieties and clear, rose and amethyst pointers

 

Varieties

Pure quartz, traditionally called rock crystal or clear quartz, is colorless and transparent or translucent, and has often been used for hardstone carvings, such as the Lothair Crystal. Common colored varieties include citrine, rose quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz, milky quartz, and others.

The most important distinction between types of quartz is that of macrocrystalline  and the microcrystalline or cryptocrystalline varieties . The cryptocrystalline varieties are either translucent or mostly opaque, while the transparent varieties tend to be macrocrystalline. Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline form of silica consisting of fine intergrowths of both quartz, and its monoclinic polymorph moganite. Other opaque gemstone varieties of quartz, or mixed rocks including quartz, often including contrasting bands or patterns of color, are agate, carnelian or sard, onyx, heliotrope, and jasper.

Amethyst

Amethyst is a popular form of quartz that ranges from a bright to dark or dull purple color. The world’s largest deposits of amethysts can be found in Brazil, Mexico, Uruguay, Russia, France, Namibia and Morocco. Sometimes amethyst and citrine are found growing in the same crystal. It is then referred to as ametrine. An amethyst is formed when there is iron in the area where it was formed.

Citrine

Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown due to ferric impurities. Natural citrines are rare; most commercial citrines are heat-treated amethysts or smoky quartzes. However, a heat-treated amethyst will have small lines in the crystal, as opposed to a natural citrine’s cloudy or smokey appearance. It is nearly impossible to differentiate between cut citrine and yellow topaz visually, but they differ in hardness. Brazil is the leading producer of citrine, with much of its production coming from the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The name is derived from the Latin word citrina which means “yellow” and is also the origin of the word “citron”. Sometimes citrine and amethyst can be found together in the same crystal, which is then referred to as ametrine. Citrine has been referred to as the “merchant’s stone” or “money stone”, due to a superstition that it would bring prosperity.

Milky quartz

Milk quartz or milky quartz is the most common variety of crystalline quartz. The white color is caused by minute fluid inclusions of gas, liquid, or both, trapped during crystal formation, making it of little value for optical and quality gemstone applications.

Rose quartz

Rose quartz is a type of quartz which exhibits a pale pink to rose red hue. The color is usually considered as due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese, in the massive material. Some rose quartz contains microscopic rutile needles which produces an asterism in transmitted light. Recent X-ray diffraction studies suggest that the color is due to thin microscopic fibers of possibly dumortierite within the massive quartz.

Additionally, there is a rare type of pink quartz  with color that is thought to be caused by trace amounts of phosphate or aluminium. The color in crystals is apparently photosensitive and subject to fading. The first crystals were found in a pegmatite found near Rumford, Maine, USA and in Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Smoky quartz

Smoky quartz is a gray, translucent version of quartz. It ranges in clarity from almost complete transparency to a brownish-gray crystal that is almost opaque. Some can also be black.

Vermarine

Vermarine, also known as prasiolite, is a variety of quartz that is green in color. Since 1950, almost all natural vermarine has come from a small Brazilian mine, but it is also seen in Lower Silesia in Poland. Naturally occurring vermarine is also found in the Thunder Bay area of Canada. It is a rare stone in nature, most green quartz is heat-treated amethyst.

Synthetic and artificial treatments

Not all varieties of quartz are naturally occurring. Some clear quartz crystals can be treated using heat or gamma-irradiation to induce color where it would not otherwise have occurred naturally. Susceptibility to such treatments depends on the location from which the quartz was mined. Prasiolite, an olive colored material, is produced by heat treatment; natural prasiolite has also been observed in Lower Silesia in Poland. Although citrine occurs naturally, the majority is the result of heat-treated amethyst. Carnelian is widely heat-treated to deepen its color.

Because natural quartz is often twinned, synthetic quartz is produced for use in industry. Large, flawless, single crystals are synthesized in an autoclave via the hydrothermal process; emeralds are also synthesized in this fashion.

Like other crystals, quartz may be coated with metal vapors to give it an attractive sheen.

Occurrence

Quartz is a defining constituent of granite and other felsic igneous rocks. It is very common in sedimentary rocks such as sandstone and shale and is also present in variable amounts as an accessory mineral in most carbonate rocks. It is a common constituent of schist, gneiss, quartzite and other metamorphic rocks. Quartz has the lowest potential for weathering in the Goldich dissolution series and consequently it is very common as a residual mineral in stream sediments and residual soils.

While the majority of quartz crystallizes from molten magma, much quartz also chemically precipitates from hot hydrothermal veins as gangue, sometimes with ore minerals like gold, silver and copper. Large crystals of quartz are found in magmatic pegmatites. Well-formed crystals may reach several meters in length and weigh hundreds of kilograms.

Naturally occurring quartz crystals of extremely high purity, necessary for the crucibles and other equipment used for growing silicon wafers in the semiconductor industry, are expensive and rare. A major mining location for high purity quartz is the Spruce Pine Gem Mine in Spruce Pine, North Carolina, United States.

The largest documented single crystal of quartz was found near Itapore, Goiaz, Brazil; it measured approximately 6.1×1.5×1.5 m and weighed more than 44 tonnes.

Related silica minerals

Tridymite and cristobalite are high-temperature polymorphs of SiO2 that occur in high-silica volcanic rocks. Coesite is a denser polymorph of SiO2 found in some meteorite impact sites and in metamorphic rocks formed at pressures greater than those typical of the Earth’s crust. Stishovite is a yet denser and higher-pressure polymorph of SiO2 found in some meteorite impact sites. Lechatelierite is an amorphous silica glass SiO2 which is formed by lightning strikes in quartz sand.

History

The word “quartz” comes from the German, which is of Slavic origin . Other sources attribute the word’s origin to the Saxon word Querkluftertz, meaning cross-vein ore.

Quartz is the most common material identified as the mystical substance maban in Australian Aboriginal mythology. It is found regularly in passage tomb cemeteries in Europe in a burial context, such as Newgrange or Carrowmore in Ireland. The Irish word for quartz is grianchloch, which means ‘sunstone’. Quartz was also used in Prehistoric Ireland, as well as many other countries, for stone tools; both vein quartz and rock crystal were knapped as part of the lithic technology of the prehistoric peoples.

While jade has been since earliest times the most prized semi-precious stone for carving in East Asia and Pre-Columbian America, in Europe and the Middle East the different varieties of quartz were the most commonly used for the various types of jewelry and hardstone carving, including engraved gems and cameo gems, rock crystal vases, and extravagant vessels. The tradition continued to produce objects that were very highly valued until the mid-19th century, when it largely fell from fashion except in jewelry. Cameo technique exploits the bands of color in onyx and other varieties.

Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder believed quartz to be water ice, permanently frozen after great lengths of time.  He supported this idea by saying that quartz is found near glaciers in the Alps, but not on volcanic mountains, and that large quartz crystals were fashioned into spheres to cool the hands. This idea persisted until at least the 17th century. He also knew of the ability of quartz to split light into a spectrum.

In the 17th century, Nicolas Steno’s study of quartz paved the way for modern crystallography. He discovered that regardless of a quartz crystal’s size or shape, its long prism faces always joined at a perfect 60° angle.

Quartz’s piezoelectric properties were discovered by Jacques and Pierre Curie in 1880. The quartz oscillator or resonator was first developed by Walter Guyton Cady in 1921. George Washington Pierce designed and patented quartz crystal oscillators in 1923. Warren Marrison created the first quartz oscillator clock based on the work of Cady and Pierce in 1927.

Efforts to synthesize quartz began in the mid nineteenth century as scientists attempted to create minerals under laboratory conditions that mimicked the conditions in which the minerals formed in nature: German geologist Karl Emil von Schafhäutl  was the first person to synthesize quartz when in 1845 he created microscopic quartz crystals in a pressure cooker. However, the quality and size of the crystals that were produced by these early efforts were poor. By the 1930s, the electronics industry had become dependent on quartz crystals. The only source of suitable crystals was Brazil; however, World War II disrupted the supplies from Brazil, so nations attempted to synthesize quartz on a commercial scale. German mineralogist Richard Nacken  achieved some success during the 1930s and 1940s. After the war, many laboratories attempted to grow large quartz crystals. In the United States, the U.S. Army Signal Corps contracted with Bell Laboratories and with the Brush Development Company of Cleveland, Ohio to synthesize crystals following Nacken’s lead.  By 1948, Brush Development had grown crystals that were 1.5 inches  in diameter, the largest to date. By the 1950s, hydrothermal synthesis techniques were producing synthetic quartz crystals on an industrial scale, and today virtually all the quartz crystal used in the modern electronics industry is synthetic.

Piezoelectricity

Quartz crystals have piezoelectric properties; they develop an electric potential upon the application of mechanical stress. An early use of this property of quartz crystals was in phonograph pickups. One of the most common piezoelectric uses of quartz today is as a crystal oscillator. The quartz clock is a familiar device using the mineral. The resonant frequency of a quartz crystal oscillator is changed by mechanically loading it, and this principle is used for very accurate measurements of very small mass changes in the quartz crystal microbalance and in thin-film thickness monitors.

The Power of the Quartz Crystals

IMG_20160726_220853

In the world of the minerals, crystals are the most similar to our being

because they were created so that they could become our best friends

One of the best ways to take out the energy that we have accumulated throughout long time in our bodies and to be able to achieve to communication with our heart is through the usage of the quartz crystals.

These wonderful beings are the most evolved minerals in energy because they are compounded by the four elements: water, earth, fire, and wind, which intervened for its creation, by which we should use them for our benefit.

One of the mission that they fulfill is to help us activate our energy, to perceive it so that when we awake the centers of our physical body we can obtain a better perspective of our actions, feelings and thoughts.

When we take them we can make their energy to conjugate with ours and they can start activating our energy, and this is what we have to do if we are looking for our senses to get better.

The interior of the quartz crystals encloses a magical world.

They are very much alive

The main thing that we have to know is that each crystal is a living being, although it might seem to us that we are just dealing with a piece of roc.

In my case I had an idea that the minerals, by being part of nature, they had life, but I did not know in which level until my Master told me:

“Search inside it, look for his face and you will find it, ask for his strength and give him your heart so he can give you his”.

These phrases seemed strange for me, but because he was my Master I wanted to do it. And so, I stood long time searching for the being that was inside the quartz crystal and even though I never thought I could see it, after some time observing it I found myself with the true crystal.

They are truly beings like us! They are beings of energy and each of us are able to see them inside the quartz crystal. That moment is magical and important. But we have to know that we are not going to identify a physical form or a face like we usually know, but rather something different: it will be a sensation, a feeling.

Right in the moment that we feel something different it means that we are already connected with our quartz crystal, that our internal being already had contact with him. It will be a  conscious communication that we will not remember, but we are going to feel like when we talk very much with someone about what hurts us or about what we feel.

It is moment in which two beings can unite, our spirit and the quartz crystal, and it is magical because we open to a being that will open to us as well

It is  a conjugation of energies that is going to help us liberate what we have accumulated by years in our body, like frustrations, thoughts and pain that we have felt since our childhood. In addition, that connection will activate our energy that is stuck.

An example of a polished quartz crystal that we should avoid having.

How to obtain them?

The best way to acquire a quartz crystal is to found it in some place in the nature, like in the woods for example.

You can go walking and see one,  when that happens it is because that quartz crystal comes from a magical place, the world of the crystals, and that got to where are because we are going to need it in our life

This is why it is important that when we find one and we are not near a mine, to keep it with us because it is a very special being.

Usually, all the people in the world have to run into one at some point in their life, because they are really important for our existence.

The second best way to obtain a quartz crystal is by receiving it as a gift from someone. If this were the case it is because our being communicated with that close person and told him of the need for the activation of our energy and to find something that will help us feel better.

On the other hand, it is not so good to buy it because in this way you send a heavy energy to it, because you not only think of it, but also that you have to pay to acquire it and that energy gets impregnated in the quartz crystal and it is harder to clean off.

It is better to be exchanged with someone you love, to be given to us and for us to give a quartz crystal to them.

It is essential to stand out that the quartz crystal that we choose must be natural not polished. What happens is that these kind of procedures alters their energy because it is like a mutilation for them. When going through this, the quartz crystal loses a great part of its nature, which is peace and harmony.

If you polish a quartz crystal without asking for its permission and forgiveness for what you are thinking to do, it is like taking its life away, all its energy.

This can be proved by comparing a one that is pure and another that is polished, this last one looks like glass because it no longer has life. We are going to feel it when we touch it, in the texture, by the energy that stays in our hands.

And this danger is also for the quartz crystals which are mistreated, the advantage is that these can actually recover thanks to the love that we can give them.

Regarding the quartz crystal cluster, you deal with a single being that when it is divided takes different personalities. Each quartz crystal has a special energy that is unique, if it breaks all its parts become different beings. We can think that they lose strength but they do not, each piece acquires an own personality and energy.

The color of the quartz crystal does not matter, they all work for the same purposes.

The proper way to clean it…

Once we have it with us, we have to establish a communication, to talk to it and to welcome it. After this, it will be necessary to clean it.

The first step is to place water in a glass or clay recipient. After this, we will activate the channels that we have in our hands rubbing them to open them. And so, we can program the water when placing our hand palms over the water to speak to its elementals and to activate its energy saying:

“Brothers, I am going to place a quartz crystal so that you can help me purify it from any energy and for you to give it the energy that you have”.

Right away you place the quartz crystal in the recipient and put it where the light of the sun and the moon hits it. If you have a back yard, you set it in the middle of the place and we leave it there all night.

You can take it out the next day at noon. You take the recipient with water and you empty it at the same time that you thank it for the cleaning and  energy that it gave.

Now our quartz crystal is free from any energy that does not belong to it and we can program it for whatever we feel is our biggest need.

The quartz crystals must have a safe refuge or place where no one else touches them, the best thing to do is to find one which is mounted that we can always carry with us in a chain.

If what we have are not mounted quartz crystals then we need to have them in a cloth bag which can be red, black or white. Every 7 seven days you have to alternate the color. It is important that the bag is not made of plastic or leather.

It is better to avoid for people to see your quartz crystal.

Attention, do not touch

Between our ancestors and the quartz crystals always existed an excellent relationship, because they said that they gave a part of their soul to them. This occurs from the moment in which we establish communication with our quartz crystal because in that moment we give our energy to it, in such a way that its energy and yours are contained inside the quartz crystal.

In the moment when someone comes and touches it the communication breaks as well as its activity, it goes back to “sleep” because it received an unknown energy that nullifies all for what you programmed it.

This is because people go through the day between positive and negative energies that get to us, like concerns or frustrations, by which our body is anxious to liberate them and when it sees something like the quartz crystal that can help, it immediately liberates everything into it.  

When someone touches your quartz crystal they pass on their vibration to you. It is also not recommendable for that person to do this because they leave a part of their energy inside the quartz crystal.

When they touch it they liberate all their negative energy, and even though they go away that connection remains, by which their energy will keep flowing towards the quartz crystal and they will keep liberating energy from their body In excess. With this, the person suffers an energy leak that manifests by making you feel tired, dizzy, or with headaches that could last up to two days.

If this happens to us, then we have to repeat the cleaning and programming procedure.

At bad times they help us to feel better.

They offer multiple usages

One of the main purposes for which we could program our quartz crystal is as a protection so that the negative energies that are around us do not harm us. But there are infinite purposes for which we could make good use of them.

For example, we could use one to attract our soul mate, to help us find our mission, to awaken our chakras and centers of energy, etc..

If we want it for minor healing like a headache, we can ask it to help us liberate the energy that we have stuck in our body.

Another example is that if we are having problems with our liver it means that it is not activating its energy and this can damage our body more and it could start to have more problems. In this case we tell our quartz crystal to help us liberate the energy so that the organ can be fine again.

We put it in the place wherever we feel for it and we are going to ask for it to stat to act. We look for a way in which we can set it and we pass it through the place where we have the discomfort, at the same time that we say something like:

“Each seven times I am going to let you absorb the energy and liberate it.

Then each seven times we shake it in the air and we do it in cycles as we feel we should.

For more complicated healing you would have to use more quartz crystals and different rocks because each one has a special energy that comes from Earth. In addition, you would need to use the four elements as well.

It is also possible to use them when being ate any negative situation, for example if you are scared you can grab a quartz crystal and ask for it to give you the required energy for that situation or equally if you are going to a test or a job interview. Your quartz crystal is going to help you because it absorbs the negative energies of the situation you are going through so that they cannot affect you.

The same happens when you get into a fight, but first you ask for its forgiveness because you are going to empty your bad vibes into it.

In this case what we can do is to take it with both hands and to ask to our body to empty the bad energy through our hands and we pass it to the quartz crystal seven times.

Afterwards, with much care we put it in a recipient with water so it can be cleaned again. We empty the liquid with precaution so that nothing that remained in the water can fall somewhere.

Of course we can always compensate our quartz crystal with something that he likes very much, which is the sea bath because the four elements are there. In this place they find an energy very much alike to what created them. Let it bathe a while in the sea water and afterwards you can set it in the sand for a while more so it can take much more energy.

Quartz crystals get charged a million times more if you take them to the sea rather if you just put them in recipient with sea water. What is most recommendable is to leave them at least 10 minutes because they clean themselves first and then they start to absorb everything.

They are happy at our side and you will notice it, each time you will see it shinier.

To communicate with our heart

Last but not least it is necessary to emphasize that we need to have a communication with our quartz crystal like with any person. To feel that we are dealing with a living being that is happy at our side.

 Some say that you have to hold your quartz crystal in a special way, but only your heart is going to tell you in which way you have to.

Maybe you will feel to stare at it or to set it somewhere, the communication is not going to be the same always.

But this is always true, we have to look at it at all times as a friend that will help us activate our energy, so we have to ask for it to give us the exact position so we can achieve conjunction with it.

The best way to treat a being is with your heart. You do not need to base yourself in books, but rather only to find again that path that we already had from the beginning of time, that communication that will be for our own benefit.

Clear Quartz Crystals

IMG_20160726_220732

Embody The White Ray… Clear White Spiritual Light

Clear Quartz Crystal Cathedral Formation

Clear Quartz Crystals are some of the most common types of crystal on the planet.

Although they are called ‘clear quartz’, they range from crystal clear stone through to milky or cloudy, almost opaque crystals.

They also occur in a variety of shapes and configurations, although most of them are of a similar hexagonal structure.

The dominant mineral in this stone is silicon, and you will find them on every continent on earth.

Also known as rock crystals, they have a very strong vibration and excellent metaphysical properties, and are the easiest crystals to program, which may used for a variety of purposes.

This is why they are utilized in industry and are used to make silicon chips for computers and radios and other man made devices.

Where Does It Come From?

Clear quartz can be found on almost every continent in the world, but not always as the beautiful stones that we associate with Clear Quartz Crystals.

It is in Brazil, Madagascar and the Arkansas region in the USA that we find some of the best clear crystal, quartz that comes in a variety of different formations.

Beautiful high vibration quartz crystals may be found in many areas of the world, and these stones embody the vibration of the area that they originate from.

Clear quartz occurs in a number of different formations, in various hexagonal structures, and these formations have been given specific names so they can be recognized.

There are so many that they are a separate subject, but they each have particular attributes. They are used for specific purposes for which the specific configurations are known.

Some of these crystals are particularly lovely stones, with a high vibration and may be used for healing with quartz crystals.

Why Would You Use It

Even though these crystals may be quite common, many of these stones have a very high vibration.  They resonate strongly within the eighth chakra, commonly known as the soul star chakra, and within the higher transpersonal chakras.

The beautiful clear white light of the white ray is your connection to the Divine Mind, and white is the color for the eighth chakra. Using Clear Quartz crystals will assist the higher chakras to emanate white light and aids your connection with spirit.

These crystals also create a powerful resonance within both the third eye chakraand the crown chakra, which is the highest chakra in the physical body.

gorgeous Clear Quartz Crystal Cluster ~ A Bridge Crystal With Many Twin Soulmate Crystals ~ It is
also a Barnacle Crystal, as it has many tiny crystals growing on it!

The crown chakra connects you up to the soul star chakra, situated in the etheric body above the head. It brings clarity to your communication and will amplify your thoughts and may assist you by stimulating clearer thinking.

It has a strong resonance, which is why it is commonly used by healers as part of crystal healing, and it has a positive effect on all chakras as it protects the aura and expands the human energy field.

Although this stone is usually thought of as one of the chakra stones for the higher chakras, it will aid all chakras.
