The power of crystals – Judy Hall text

Shamanic Crystals Judy Hall Extracted from The Crystal Bible, New Crystals and Healing Stones and The Crystal Encyclopedia (l50 stones not in the Crystal Bible) Most shamanic crystals are high vibration stones that bring about multidimensional healing but these only work if your own vibrations are in harmony with the stone. If a crystal does not appear to work for you, hold it and gently concentrate on your palm. You may feel a tingle and your body will shift slightly as it attunes to the crystal. If so, persevere, sitting for ten minutes a day until the crystal begins to work. If not, choose another crystal. A high vibration crystal may bring about a strong reaction or healing challenge. If this occurs, remove the crystal immediately and hold a Green Phantom or Smoky Quartz point down towards your feet to facilitate the release of energy moving easily out of your body. Wait a day or two before using the high vibration crystal again. Brandenberg Chakra: all but especially the soma chakra – above the third eye at the hairline, and the past life chakras – behind the ears on the bony ridge. All Brandenbergs whether clear, smoky or amethyst, carry the vibration of each colour. A useful aid to multi-dimensional spiritual work, ‘inner windows’ or phantoms assist in looking within or traversing the spiritual planes and gently break old patterns and ties. This high-vibration crystal is an indispensable aid for healing and journeying, and for exploring the pure, eternal blueprint that lies behind existence. It returns a body to that purity of vibration and intention that came before any imprinting from earthly incarnations. Emanating infinite compassion to all of creation, Brandenberg brings about deep soul healing and forgiveness. This stone speeds recovery from illness or accident and is excellent for house clearing. A Smoky Brandenberg is the finest tool available for removing implants, attachments, spirit possession or mental influence and this is the stone par excellence for transformation or transition. 2 Other shamanic stones: Actinolite Chakra: heart, solar plexus, third eye Actinolite is an excellent stone for psychic shielding. Expanding the aura and crystallising its edges, this stone connects you to higher awareness and brings body, mind, psyche and spirit into balance. An effective aid to visualisation and imagery. Actinolite assists the body to adjust to changes or traumas. Aegirine Chakra: higher heart (thymus) An excellent crystal for generating and focussing energy beams for use in healing a person or environment, Aegerine removes emotional energy blockages and enhances positive vibrations. Extremely helpful in psychic attack or negative thinking, it repairs the aura after attachments have been removed and turns negative thoughts positive. This stone helps you see the bigger picture and Aegirine heals relationship problems and overcomes the grief of separation. Encouraging sincerity in all that you do, Aegirine empowers the quest for your true self and the ability to do what is needed from the heart. This stone encourages following your own truth without conforming to the ideas or ideals of others, or to group pressure, and focuses your goals wisely. Boosting the body’s self-healing systems, it enhances the healing energy of other crystals. Agrellite Chakra: third eye and higher crown. Agrellite surfaces things – fast. It shows where you have been attempting to control others and supports you in allowing them independence and self-respect. Bringing to your attention matters that you have repressed and buried deep within your psyche, and which are blocking your soul growth, it also helps you to face your own inner saboteur and to access untapped potential. This stone detects blockages within the physical or aura, to which it has a distinctive energetic response, although other crystals may be required to heal the condition 3 Ajoite Chakra: third eye, crown, links heart and throat An extremely high vibration and rare stone, Ajoite wraps the soul in universal love. If your vibrations are in harmony with this stone it brings about a profound spiritual revelation and serenity. A purifier for the emotional body and instilling infinite peace, Ajoite creates emotional and environmental calm, gently drawing out and transmuting toxic emotions and old grief. Worn over the thymus, it dissipates stress from the physical body and, harmonising the etheric blueprint with the physical body, attunes to a state of perfect health. Ajoite draws karmic wounds or implants out of the body no matter at what level or from which timeframe they originate, and gently heals the resulting space with unconditional love, reframing cellular memory. Ajoite with Shattuckite Chakra: higher heart or third eye An excellent energy conduit, this combination is one of the most powerful protections against electromagnetic smog and psychic attack. Creating a protective bubble around the aura that keeps you safe no matter where you may be, it enables you to remain open spiritually. In times of stress, wearing this stone allows you to experience profound peace and to remain centred in yourself. Karmically, Ajoite with Shattuckite assists the process of atonement, reconciliation and reparation, releasing the need for such acts where these have become a blockage to spiritual progress especially if a subtle carryover of past life mortification practises. It teaches the difference between atonement and at-onement and opens the way for the karma of grace to operate. Amblygonite Chakra: solar plexus, higher crown, opens and aligns all A useful stone for gently releasing emotional hooks from the solar plexus, Amblygonite assists in ending relationships without angry consequences. It can be used to grid areas of discordance or public disorder, bringing peace and tranquillity, especially where young people are involved.

Bronzite is marketed as being particularly effective against curses. However, traditionally iron-bearing crystals, such as Bronzite, return ill-wishing, curses or spells back to the source magnified three times over.
