In the world we live in today there seems to be a disconnect from our physical “seen” reality and our spiritual/energetic “unseen” reality. I have personally noticed a shift of the “average” person being drawn to crystals, minerals and their metaphysical properties. Crystals and minerals contain within them an energetic frequency and it is my personal belief that they are also living beings.
Crystals and minerals have the unique ability to realign the body’s energy centers or chakras, reestablish the connection to our higher selves, bring more awareness of spirit into our conscious mind, align us with our life’s purpose or soul mission, etc.
The word spirit originates from the Latin spiritus or “breath” and is defined as an animating or vital principle held to give life to physical organisms; God as the moving force in the Universe; Principle as the breath of life in all creation. As humans living in a 3 dimensional world filled with modern technology and many other worldly distractions it is no wonder as to why so many of us are so out of touch with the reality and awareness of spirit. There are many practices such as Yoga, Tai chi or Qigong that allow us to bring more breath(spirit/prana/chi/life force) into our bodies and ground that breath into our reality. These practices not only allow us to bring more spirit into our very being, but they also allow us to become more aware and sensitive of these subtle energies moving through and around our bodies.
Another method of bringing more spirit into our bodies and the awareness of the subtle energies is to work with and connect to the vibrations of the crystal and mineral community. I will provide a small list of powerful crystals and minerals with a brief description of their metaphysical properties:
Moldavite: Formed during the violent impact of a large meteorite around 14.8 million years ago, Moldavite contains within its structure spiritual fire with a fusion of earthly and extraterrestrial energies. Moldavite carries within a very intense frequency that even the average person, with little or no knowledge of crystal/mineral energies, is able to perceive. In my opinion, this is the most powerful of all the ascension stones that I have worked with and aligns individuals to their highest spiritual purpose in a very short period of time whether they are ready or not! Moldavite’s purpose is for the quickening of spiritual awakening, transformation and evolutionary growth. It can connect one with Ascended Masters and off-world messengers, ground light for the healing of Earth, attract thought patterns and light vibrations that are the most beneficial for ascension and illumination, disconnecting one from unhealthy personal attachments and stops negative energies and entities from clinging to one’s aura.
Herkimer Diamond: Herkimer diamonds are a very unique variation of quartz that is believed to have been formed about half a billion years ago. They are more often than not formed as short, stubby and double-terminated(termination at each end) crystals. The name “diamond” comes from the small percentage of crystals that formed with incredible clarity, high luster and extreme gemminess. Herkimers manifest pure, solid light and are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy. As superb channels of the universal life force(spirit) they are remarkable healing crystals. With pure crystal light, Herkimers clear the chakras that open channels for spiritual energy to flow, purify one’s energy field, attune one to the divine, draw angels to their pure etheric radiance and assists in meditation by clearing body and mind and allowing for complete relaxation and the expansion of the Life energy(spirit).
Spirit Quartz: This unusual variation of Quartz is a community within a stone. At its core is a larger crystal that is coated with hundreds of smaller crystals, all having termination points. It can be found only in the Magaliesberg Mountain region of South Africa. The vast majority of Spirit Quartz is Amethyst. Its resonance is spiritually uplifting, transmitting high vibrational energy in all directions, helping to carry the gifts of spirit out into the world, repairing holes to the etheric body, providing multi-directional spiritual and cellular healing and aligns the aura, chakras, meridians and the physical body.
