Introduction to Crystals
Crystals have been around for thousands of years. They have been used in everything from healing to magick and in modern times to advance technology, used in all forms of medical procedures and even to power our watches and computers.
Formed over long periods of time, sometimes hundreds or even thousands of years, deep in our own earth. Crystals have a connection with earth magick and help us to connect with that source of magick. They are found all over the world and come in many different shapes, sizes and colours. They all transmute a beauty of their own and each individual is drawn to a different crystal because of the different vibrations they send.
Each one has its own unique energies and qualities and there are literally hundreds to choose from. Crystals can also help to remove unwanted energies and when used in magick rituals, will amplify the intentions of the energy focused upon them. Crystals are also a welcome addition to any altar as they not only enhance the magickal energies around it, but also add colour and decoration to your alter.
When choosing crystals, be sure to let your intuition take over. You will find you will be drawn to a certain type of crystal and one or two will stand from the many hundreds available. This is because your vibrational energy resonates with that particular crystal. When this happens, buy that crystal. In most circumstances the crystal will choose you!
Crystals are also great healers and every crystal has different healing properties. Some will also enhance the healing effect of other crystals.
