    The Importance of Cleansing and Clearing your Crystals
      Cleanse new crystals straightaway, particularly if you intend to use them for healing. Cleansing is not a physical process - rather it is a spiritual ritual. In esoteric terms, crystals absorb and retransmit all energies with which they come into contact. In healing, crystals become receptive to emotional energies. Cleansing your crystal back to a neutral state ensures that accumulated negative energies are not passed on. This process also re-energises the crystal and ensures that it functions at its highest level. Let your intuition be your guide: keep the intention in mind that you are clearing away all inappropriate energies and that you are working with purity of purpose. The following are some different ways to cleanse, purify, re-energise and tune your crystals. Please note that as some crystals are sensitive to heat, light and/or water, not all methods will be suitable for all crystals. Cleansing with Water - Cleanse your crystals by holding them under cool running water, such as an ordinary bathroom tap for several minutes. As you do so, think about a beautiful waterfall you have seen of visited. Or imagine the waves lapping over your crystal on a tropical beach. Note: Do not do this ritual with Halite, Selenite, Lapis Lazuli, Malachite or Turquoise as these crystals are sensitive to water. Stone Clearing and Crystal Clusters- Some stones will clear the negative or unwanted energies from other stones. The best all round crystal for this is Clear Quartz. Place the stone to be cleared on a "clearing" stone, and leave for 24 hours. Amethyst Bed can also be used- use a large piece, or bed, of Amethyst to cleanse several crystals at once. Amethyst is said to transmute lower energies into the higher frequencies of both the spiritual and ethereal worlds, thereby transforming whatever is placed on it. Leave your.... read more

    CARING For Your New Crystals Crystal holds wonderful magical and healing properties….crystals are a gentle,non-invasive system of holistic healing with no side effects. All crystals are beautiful and should be enjoyed and on display. Don't hide them away; they love to be loved. They should be cleansed and re-energised once a month. Crystal jewellery should be cleansed after every use. Crystal CLEANSING There are many ways to cleanse and re-energise your crystals;none of them is any better than another.... It's all down to personal choice and your intention that's whats important. However ... there are some methods where caution should be used when cleansing with water and or the sunshine..... Which is mentioned below ...... Water With Sunshine Or Moonshine One of the easiest methods is by holding the crystals under running water, or immersing them in sea or salt water. During this washing you should hold the intention that all negativity will be washed away and then by allowing them to dry in the sunshine or moonshine, they will be fully re-energised and ready to be used again. You can leave your crystals outside to enjoy the sun or moon, but placing them on a window sill will be fine. As mentioned above, caution should be used when using this method.It should not be used with fragile or pointed crystals, or on crystals that are likely to fade in the sunlight. Some crystals, like selenite, are water soluble, and therefore should not be cleansed with this method. As a precaution, any crystals that end in * it* is probably water soluble. It is also important not to place the crystals where the sunrays can focus on the crystal in a way which could start a fire ... Not good lol .... Sea Salt or Rock Salt For those more delicate crystals and crystal clusters, that are not soluble, these can be left out overnight in sea or.... read more

    Charging and Programming Crystals
    Charging CrystalsCrystals can be charged by placing one crystal on a Large Crystal Cluster, like an Amethyst Cluster. You can also place the crystal or crystals in the centre of a circle where the circle is comprised of other crystals whose terminations are pointing towards the centre. This is often referred to as Crystal Grids or Gridding. Another way to charge crystals is to place them in the sunlight and/or in the light of the moon; the days related to the summer and winter solstices, the vernal equinox, the autumnal equinox, the full moon and the new moon are more heavily charged. Programming Crystals Programming is the process of instructing the energies of the crystals in the method in which to use its qualities of transformation, stability and attunement. Precise directions are required, or the response will be less than that which is intended. This precision in intent is beneficial training for those utilizing crystals. The act of holding a crystal and intending to use it for a specific purpose is the simplest form of programming. Another method, primarily relevant to the programming of thoughts and universal energies which are inherent to the mineralogical formation involves the following: 1) Formulate a precise phrase which accurately describes the nature of the programming 2) Hold the crystal in your dominant hand, relax for several minutes, initiate circular breathing and centre yourself. Consciously align the personal conscious awareness with the higher self 3) Ask for guidance, protection and assistance in the programming process. Open the centre of consciousness and allow receptivity to flow through your inner being. 4) Repeat the formulated phrase 20 to 30 times in succession while visualising and/or feeling the desired effect of the program. As the phrase is repeated, an energy field will build and culminate in the energy pattern necessary to represent the desired program. 5) While.... read more

    Crystals and Colour Therapy
    Crystals and Colour The Colouration of a Crystal results from how it interacts with light, and this is dependant upon the atomic structure of the mineral. There are two main types of mineral colours. Ideochromatic minerals are those such as copper or chromium, who's chemical composition directly affects their colour. Allochromatic minerals, on the other hand, are coloured by small amounts of impurities, usually no more than a few atoms of some other element, that create anomalies within the crystal lattice. In opaque stones the colours we see are those frequencies of light that are not absorbed into the crystal lattice. Where a stone absorbs all frequencies of light, it appears black. White stones reflect the full colour spectrum and absorb no light. With a Crystal that is transparent or translucent, light rays enter the Crystal Structure and are actually slowed and bent or refracted from their paths by the arrangement of atoms. Depending on how the atoms modify the photons of light, the crystal will shift a full sunlight spectrum toward the slower frequencies, thus appearing Red, or towards the faster frequencies of blue and violet. In Allochromatic stones, the minute anomalies in the crystal structure carry different energy charges that capture proton particles and forms centres or colouration. When a Crystal's colour changes according to the angle at which it is viewed, this process is known as Pleochromism. The internal structures and symmetry of the mineral break up separate rays of light in different ways depending on where the light enters the crystal. Diffraction is where the light becomes polarized, shifting speed and frequency, and emerges from the Crystals at different angles. The Psychology of Colour The Human Body is intimately keyed to colour through its very evolution and colour therapy is an important method of treatment. Colour affects your personality, whether because.... read more
