Clear Crystal Quartz, often referred to as “the Supreme Healer” due to its diverse healing properties, has been used for centuries by different cultures throughout the world. It’s also been referred to as “Rock Crystal” - the name Quartz comes from the Greek word for “ice”, as the ancients believed it was water that was frozen so hard it would never melt!
The Japanese called clear quartz the perfect jewel and viewed it as a symbol of infinite space, purity, patience and perseverance. Indigenous cultures in North America and Burma believed clear quartz crystals to be living entities and presented them with food as ritual offerings. Crystal balls brought back by the Crusaders were said to possess magical powers. In Scotland and Ireland, crystal spheres were used throughout history to cure disease in cattle.
Clear Crystal Quartz is colourless and is one of the most abundant minerals found on every continent on earth. It has both piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties, where the polarity of the quartz crystal will change when it is subjected to mechanical energy (pressure) or heat. Consequently, it is used in a wide range of devices from watches to microphones to radio transmitters.
It is said that crystal quartz holds the ideal blueprint from the Divine, that is to say, it contains the seeds of Earth’s growth and spiritual evolution. It has been referred to as frozen light, as it represents the basic form that light takes when it becomes physical matter. It is this light that is the essence of love and knowledge from the Divine. It is a teacher of humanity, bringing greater awareness that we are a perfect vehicle for light’s flow while in physical existence. It raises our consciousness to know that it is our birthright to create and express our highest potential.
Crystal Quartz cleanses your body and aura field of any unwanted energy, giving you more space to experience the flow of your own energy. It brings clarity of thought and helps you get clear on your purpose.
So whenever we hold Clear Quartz we are bringing the Divine’s light into our bodies, and expanding our spiritual awareness. You may choose to wear crystal quartz as jewellery, meditate with it, or simply put it under your pillow at night which can also enhance the vividness of your dreams.
Crystal Quartz not only amplifies the energy of other stones, but is highly programmable? Whaaaat? Yes. Most other stones have fixed healing properties, but Crystal Quartz is very versatile and can be programmed by one’s focused intention to support one in achieving their heart’s desires.
You might ask, how could this possibly work? Well, let’s give it a try! Simply hold your Crystal Quartz stone or piece of jewellery while meditating and create an image or picture of what you would like to manifest. Then project that picture into the crystal and hold that image inside the crystal for a few minutes…maybe stating an affirmation that supports what you’ve visualized. How would you feel if you received your desire, and allow those feelings to flow into the crystal?
This ritual creates a powerful psychic amplification. You have now programmed your Crystal Quartz, and if you continue this ritual it will further imprint your intentions on the crystal’s memory of what you want to create. Now watch the magic begin - stay open and aware and watch for synchronicities unfold around you!
Crystal Quartz is here to support you in shining your light!
In joy & light,
My own experiences
