I work with Crystals quite possibly more than I work with Reiki, maybe that will change as the years go by, but all in all, Crystals are my calling and I find an immense amount of comfort in them and their uses. It’s taken me years to hone my skills in this area, and contrary to what you may or may not believe, getting a certificate to say I’m ‘qualified’ been the least prevalent part of my Crystal education. That’s not to say that it’s not important, I value my accreditation and learned an awful lot on my course, but an awful lot of Crystal knowledge comes with time and experience.
I have found myself specialising in Crystal Jewellery; bespoke Crystal Jewellery, to be exact, and through working with individuals to create something unique for their needs, I’ve discovered my love of Crystal Families….and now I use them ALL. THE. TIME. Not just in jewellery, but in Crystal Pouches and prescriptions for people.
So, what do I mean by Crystal Families? It’s a phrase I’ve kind of coined myself, because it honestly seems the most appropriate description. Crystal Families are groups of stones that work together for a common goal, or purpose, or more often than that, person.
Crystals have a wealth of uses, each one can be used for a wide variety of conditions and situations, which is one of the things I love about them, and they all work in different ways; some are stronger, some are gentler, some deal with the emotional body, some the physical, some the energetic, and so on and so on…
We are complex and unique creatures, and often our situations and conditions are just as complex and unique, which is where my little Crystal Families come in…
Despite the amazeballsness (yes, that’s a word!) of Crystals, their uses can often be vague. Take Lepidolite, for example; it’s vibration is useful for treating allergies, but allergies can be any number of things and have any number of symptoms. If we want Lepidolite to get specific, we need to team it up with another Crystal, or two, and create a Crystal Family. This group of Crystals will be specifically grouped together to treat an individual with a specific issue, and they will draw out the benefits needed from each stone and amplify them.
So, to give you an example, if you are suffering from Hayfever, and you have itchy eyes and stuffiness, Lepidolite is definitely going to be your first port of call, but it alone will only do so much and you are after a Powerhouse of Crystal potency to ease your pain…
Group together Lepidolite, Aquamarine, and either Emerald or Aventurine.
Aquamarine helps to calm the autoimmune systems overreaction to stimulants, so is perfect for reactions such as hayfever, and Emerald and Aventurine are both soothing for the eyes.
Set the intention for the Crystals for be used for the purposes of easing hayfever, paying close attention to the person requiring them, and keep them together in a little pouch, or group in jewellery, and you have created a Crystal Family that will be much more potent than a single Lepidolite in your pocket.
You can do this for any condition or situation, you simply have to break it down into specifics.
I’ll be writing more about Crystal Families with specific prescriptions for certain things, but do you already use this method with your Crystals? Or do you have an issue or condition you’d like help with finding a Crystal Family for? Let me know!
