Most if not all humans are skeptics, I am certainly one of them. Religion and other people’s rules and ideas have been forced unto us for so long that you don’t realize you have built up a wall; a wall that is programmed to only believe in what’s been taught, what supposedly is real.
So the question I often see come up is: do crystals really work?
My answer to this is: it all depends on your personal beliefs. Do YOU believe that crystals work? Sure I could regurgitate internet & book based facts about Quartz crystals being piezoelectric and pyroelectric; being used in watches, computers and other technologies. I could tell you “sure, they work!” But would you believe me?
Because it’s not scientifically proven that crystals work, most online articles refer to it as the placebo effect. Yet a lot of people are really into them right now and have been into it in the past, why?
I am not here to convince you that crystals work somehow, I think anyone who is curious enough can do an experiment for themselves. Life is an experiment in itself so there is no right or wrong. Is it so far fetched to think that energy from crystals and stones doesn’t affect us? How about inanimate objects like books or toys, don’t they affect us in some way; doesn’t a toy or a stuffed animal bring instant joy to a child? Don’t books increase our knowledge of a subject or take us into another world? I believe it is the same with crystals, except crystals are as natural as it gets; Mother Earth’s ultimate gift to us.
Even though there are plenty of books, tutorials and everyone sharing knowledge about their experience with crystals, you have to learn to trust your own experiences too and know that they are just as valid and real.✨
Sit with a crystal or stone for a few minutes while turning off all distractions and close your eyes while holding the crystal. Relax and breathe deeper to get into that quiet space with the crystal. What do you feel, or sense? It is recommended that you turn off all distractions because you might miss the subtle messages you’ll receive from the crystal. And they are VERY subtle.
Maybe you won’t feel anything at all, or maybe it was just your imagination. Or maybe you can’t even still your mind at this point. Or maybe you will actually feel something.
Whatever you got out of it, trust it. Or try again a few more times. Not everyone connects with a crystal the first time. It takes practice and being patient with yourself.
For me personally, crystals and stones DO work. Not all of them, but you will attune to the ones that are meant to be with you. You will find yourself attracted to their color and light; the color or stone you choose is most likely the one you need to work with to heal some kind of issue you might be currently having or to activate something within. It is similar to color therapy; humans are naturally attracted to color and light and it just so happens that crystals and stones emit that frequency.
Remember, there is a consciousness that exists within every crystal and stone; you might not understand it but it exists. Why do people talk to their plants or hug trees or marvel at a gigantic rock? What energy do you pick up from it?🗿
The crystal knows what you need and will assist you in discovering the answers you seek.
