People have always been drawn to crystals, primarily due to their visual attraction, exquisite purity, fantastic interplay of colors and "crystal-clear" transparency. Crystals, semi-precious and precious stones, however, have other outstanding features, making them very much suitable to be used as tools in various metaphysical, spiritual, and healing practices.
The spiritual science considers crystals and all the other members of the mineral kingdom as living beings that are at the basic level of evolution of consciousness. This is in contrast to the wide-spread belief based on the parameters of nowadays science, by which crystal are not classified as living entities.
Possessing various vibrations crystals are capable of accumulating energy in accordance with their inherent nature. Furthermore, they can amplify the absorbed energy and bring it back to us and our environment through resonance and vibration. Their help can be invaluable, provided that we treat them like living entities. Once we have mastered the skill of communicating with our crystals, they are going to reveal to us much more - their hidden virtues and qualities.
It is believed that the spiritual basis of working with crystals originates from Atlantis, where a powerful technology for obtaining crystals synthetically had been devised, enabling production of crystals of extended proportions to be used for different purposes.
Amid the great number of crystals that are available, it might be difficult for us to choose the right crystal. There are some important points of choosing crystals that should be considered before making up our mind, such as visual appeal, intuitive attraction and attraction at mental level, and crystal's practical values.
Once the particular crystal has been chosen and purified, for instance, by using the help of one of the four elements (water, fire, earth and air) we can charge and program it. By charging, we associate it with the types and qualities of energy we would like to put within our crystal. By programming, we implant our selected thoughts, feelings, and intentions into the crystal's energy pattern, and afterwards our crystal will amplify and irradiate them back to us.
The color of crystals can be a good indication as to what kind of metaphysical practice or healing practice their specific energies are suitable for.
For example, colorless, white or violet crystals open the door of perception; bring unity with the Universe and transcendental love. Red crystals are symbols of life, vitality, power. They move energies, they worm up. Orange crystals encourage life energy, self-control and regulate the functioning of the sexual glands. Yellow crystals help the indigestion, influence the normal functioning of the liver, gallbladder, kidneys and spleen. They release subconscious fears, and promote balance. Green crystals represent the color of love, health, harmony and creativity. They help with heart disorders, regulate the blood pressure, calm the nerves and stimulate love.
Finally, it is important to remember that for eons have crystals been absorbing the omnipresent Cosmic love, amplifying it, and spreading their steady energy vibrations all around them. They have been supporting God's creation, by outpouring their love and spirituality into the world, transmitting the Sun's light, love, and warmth, and along with it, their structural stability. Therefore, it is comforting to know that they can be our devoted friends, counselors and teachers.
