If anything, I am inclined to view the world in a loosely scientific way, that there is a universal base and that matters very much. Just not in the way others seem to think.
Crystal magic is based on an animistic world view. That the crystals have a spirit. So crystals can be used as an additional pair of eyes when dealing with your personal space or with places of power. Shamans use them as spirit helpers. For some crystals will work well for them, for others not so much. Be sure to choose one that resonants with you, like a good friend.
“Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes – every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.” Orison Swett Marden
The material uses of things in magic (or whatever you prefer to call your practice) stem from one type of insight, that the world is interconnected. Hermetic philosophy refers to these connections as correspondences, and they have been viewed in literally every mystical practice across the world. This raises the question of, “What is power?”, and “What is spirit?” Many observations have been made about how anything is organized, even human DNA. Perhaps of some interest is that literally everything follows a crystalline pattern; water, gases, any solid matter. Human DNA seems to be based on a calcium rich clay… Seek More
Like meeting a new person, you may not be resonant with a specific type of crystal. For myself, I tend to connect more with crystals that have base element inclusions, iron, etc. Those things that are more on the “decayed” side of the elemental chart, but others would perhaps vibe with more “refined” or “energetic” crystals. They each have an impact on people. Now in fact, crystals can be used to serve as an additional pair of eyes when dealing with places of power, or just dealing with your personal space. They can also be brought into entrainment to radiate… Seek More
What else are crystals used for? Energy manipulation? They can be used for energy manipulation. Have you ever wished you could get someone to do some energy work for you, but don’t know anyone you feel comfy with? Crystals are an intelligence, and can direct energies they bond with. They will tend to direct them in ways that match their character. So if you want a crystal to assist health, then quartz and its variants will likely be best. Shamans sometimes use crystals in healing. For example, healing work on your stomach may go something like this. Your stomach feels… Seek More
To find a crystal, are there varying degrees of quality? Not quality, but there is differing character. They are like living things, if you don’t bond they disconnect. Sort of like someone who bonds with their houseplants. If they have a supportive energy themselves the houseplants will flourish. For some, crystals won’t be remarkably useful. This doesn’t mean they will be useless, but their energies will connect best only with a narrow set of crystals. For others they will connect with crystals in general pretty well, and will find a wide variety useful. For me the more volcanic minerals work,… Seek More
Most people seem to want to resist any identification. It has been my experience that we tend to be creatures of our elements, though these aren’t narrow. It is like the world was repeated endlessly with any color you choose, like those classic artists who used a single color for a theme. Though in fact we tend to not use one color only, we don’t use them all and we each have a personal rainbow. This is why anyone who says a color always means “insert meaning here”. This is delusional. This doesn’t even apply to physical observation. Here is an example, you… Seek More
Many say I’m too divisive. Divisive is ”to act as an agent of division” loosely defined. I don’t speak of the ‘oneness’ enough. That I make people think in bad ways simply put. I just report what I know. Nothing else. If you deny the wall is there and you walk into it will it go away? If you acknowledge the wall you can figure out what to do, and for any practical purpose the wall isn’t a barrier for you. It’s there, but it is a circumstance and not a problem. Even potentially a boon, but the division stands. Walls can… Seek More
Crystals are much more common than people generally realize. Any inorganic chemistry has a crystalline dynamic in it. Anyone have any experience using crystal magic? I have one experience. I read that one should clean a crystal and then sleep with it under your pillow. I was doing that and one of them kept me awake until I put it in another room. Oh yes, they can do that, especially if the crystal had gotten a lot of sun. It was a clear quartz crystal. It had been in the sun under running water. It was well charged up then.… Seek More
Uses for crystals. Each crystal has its own specific resonance, and metals are also crystals. Copper and silver are very popular “metals” in metaphysical practices. Turquoise is a silver oxide not typically considered, but I will offer that you will find turquoise substitutes well for silver, if you are seeking a calming or mind expanding effect. But your own energy pattern will resonate differently with different metals and crystals than, say, mine would. Like in my case, rose quartz gives me a headache, as does wrought iron. I know that if you place turquoise near the throat chakra, it is… Seek More
All patterns of any kind are information, which brings us to the subject of “crystal” language. Math is basically crystal language in that it forms ordered and static patterns and interacts with other values in a consistent or “quantum” way. Basic integer math is the basis of even our spoken language characters. All the characters we form in every language have a shared characteristic of a “lattice” pattern. Even the highly pictographic script of Egypt still follows a columnar pattern in its ordering, much like the structure of a crystal. With the relationship between sound and crystallization, crystals have informed language… Seek More
How can we use knowledge of crystals to our advantage? Every disadvantage is the breakdown of a crystal like resonance, an entropy of an otherwise clear signal. All potentials that can manifest in life manifest in countless forms, many of which seem unrecognizable to our contemporary understanding of reality. The formation of blood has at its root the same potential as the formation of iron crystals. The formation of speech has for its root the same potential as the formation of our nerves. It’s all linked. Taken down to the basic building blocks of the universe, every potential energy is manifested… Seek More
