Crystals have been utilized since the dawn of civilization. The Aztecs, Mayans, Native American Indians, African natives, Australian Aboriginals as well as the Celts used Quartz crystals in their rituals and ceremonies, and struck the crystals to produce flashes of visible light.
Native American Indians used Turquoise as a ‘protector’ and would braid their horses’ manes and tails with Turquoise and placed them on their arrows for hunting. Turquoise also decorated their amulets and adorned their tribal costumes and head-dresses.
The Native American Indians believed crystals to be the brain cells of Mother Earth, whilst the Australian Aboriginals and the tribesmen of New Guinea used crystals in their ‘rain making’ rituals and ceremonies. The sacred site of Uluru in Australia emits the frequency of a gigantic crystal, and the Aborigines believe that it is a sacred, living being that marks the centre of the world.
The Ancient ‘Atlantians’ were believed to have developed an advanced technology whereby crystals were used in order to convert the Sun’s energy into a form of solar power or electricity. According to legend, this energy or power made inter-dimensional travel and communication possible.
Atlantis is believed to have had beautiful healing temples where vibrations and colors were integrated through crystals in order to affect light-based healing techniques. Crystals assisted with disease and illness diagnosis, and aided tissue and limb regeneration and the curing of illnesses and diseases of all kinds. Certain crystals were also believed to have been used to prevent (or at the very least, slow down) the physical body from aging. The Atlantian civilization revolved around and depended upon the ability of crystals to transform, transmit, amplify and focus energy.
Ancient peoples looked at minerals and gemstones with a view to protect themselves from their enemies and the elements, to improve their crops, to see and predict the future and to uplift the spirits. Crystal lenses have been discovered in ruins and archaeological sites dating from 338 BC.
Ancient wands were made of copper, iron and brass, couple with a single large crystal or decorated with a range of smaller crystals, and provided for the balancing of the energies of the body, and assisted with the maintenance of the chemistry of the physical, emotional and intellectual bodies – enhancing the mind, body, soul and spirit.
Wands made of gold, silver, copper or platinum with a natural crystal or faceted gem at one or both ends provides the directional focus required in order to provide maximum energy.
Crystals emit negative ions which create harmonious and uplifting feelings. Crystals can be used as a personal tool for transformation as they can be used to store, amplify, transmit and focus our thoughts, desires and emotions, assisting manifesting them into reality.
Many crystals align with the magnetic fields of the Earth as well as naturally vibrating with their own energies. These vibrations energize the environment and anything and anyone within close proximity.
Today, crystals are used in computer technology to expand storage capacity and in the production of lenses for precise optical instruments.
Crystals have healing attributes and are used in many modalities, as well as for their beauty and aesthetic qualities.
Crystals bring about clarity and clear negative energies, stimulate our personal resources, restores equilibrium and bring about a vibrational state of peace and balance in the mind body and soul.
