I am utterly in love with collecting crystals. For spiritual and healing purposes as well as the fact that gazing at them is like looking directly at magic. I plan to archive some of my crystals and to share the beauty of them with you. This beautiful specimen is called Mica or Muscovite. It you don't know how to charge or cleanse your crystals I will post a simple 'how to' for those of you getting into crystals. For now though let me introduce you to my first crystal collection here.
Mica is a stunning mineral mostly silverly and yellow in colour and reminiscent of mother of pearl. This mineral helps you to remove your bad characteristics and be more flexible in intellectual situations. It enhances clarity in your visions and is good for healthy hair and eyes, reducing hunger and dehydration. A bedside mineral, its origins are Madagascar, Brazil and the USA.
Everything and everyone has a natural frequency and carries energy. Crystals and minerals hold an energy. You can harness this energy through mediation. All it takes it to be mindful and sit with your crystal to tap into that energy. Sit with a crystal just for five minutes if you wish. Carry it in your pocket, wear it as a necklace. Let it come in contact with your skin. Spend time near a crystal or mineral that holds properties that you are in need of.
Now what I am discussing is not for everyone. But that's ok! From my perspective, I feel something when I sit with my crystals and when I hold them. I feel a deeper connection rooted with the Earth. I am in awe at this incredible piece of magic that I hold in my hands. Let me explain.
If you held a fossil of a fish, you would see the bones of the fish that lived a life. It lived and died. It then sank to the bottom of the ocean when it passed away. Then was memorised in stone over millions of years. It carries a history. It carries a story. And one day, you stood on the beach, looked between your feet and there it was - a little fossil that you can now hold in your hands. People value fossils because they see its history clearly. I value crystals and minerals in the same way, even though there are no bones to see.
Scientifically, three things determine the nature and look of a crystal. Temperature, time and pressure. Some crystals and minerals take perhaps millions of years to be created. Not only are they stunning but they are the Earth's history. I believe, that when a crystal is formed, it harnesses the energy of the Earth. It harnesses time.
We can share this energy by sitting with the crystals or having them in contact with our skin. That's just me. Magic is real. It only takes one glance to believe that when something like this exists. Maybe crystals are the Earth's memories. I would love to know your favourite crystals. Please comment below!
