So here we are muddling about in 4th dimensional timespace (4D) wondering why the things we once relied upon no longer seem to work for us. We also wonder what is going on with time in general, as it seems to be exhibiting some rather strange properties of late. Yes, there are those who proclaim that we are still living in third dimensional timespace, (3D) but I suggest those folks are just living in the past, as humans so often prefer to do. If once reliable structures now being unreliable, and the shifting, morphing nature of time itself are not enough to convince you earth is in 4D ... take a good look around at events transpiring on this planet. It may take some a while to wrap their head around the idea, that one of the reasons things we have relied upon don't seem to work is because we are changing right along with everything else; evolving into beings who can exist and flourish in fifth dimensional timespace (5D).* This is manifesting as reality regardless of individual belief systems; kinda like gravity ~ it works whether you believe in it or not. It is nearing graduation time for the students enrolled in this earth school, and as with more familiar schools, some will move on ahead, while others will not. Those who feel they have gotten all they need here and are ready to move ahead are doing the things they know are required for guaranteeing a seat on the bus to 5D.
As covered in a recent post on Vibrational Medicine, we are timeless, ageless, multi-dimensional beings of energy, frequency and resonance who exist in a carbon based bio-suit made from stardust. We are all taking part in a group soul migration back to source, back to home. Those of us who truly know and more importantly feel this to be true find that our focus tends to narrow now, to those things which will help us reach that goal, everything not serving that, is being cut loose. We are dumping the rocks we've collected (baggage) from our rucksacks, we are getting ready for flight. We each have a 'toolbox' containing those things we've found helpful in our spiritual journey to enlightenment; these tools we use serve to raise our vibration & focus our intent...becoming part of our 'spiritual practice'. Just as every carpenter's toolbox should contain a few power tools, so should our spiritual toolbox, and by power tools I of course refer to the mineral kingdom of crystals and stones.
Quartz crystals are an integral part of our lives, and we rely on them every day without even realizing it. Think "crystal radio set"- as early radio and indeed todays telecommunications industry rely on crystal chips to store and transmit energy. If we didn't have quartz crystal technology, not only would many watches not function...neither would the computer you are reading this on. These of course are highly modified forms of crystal, yet the modifications add nothing that doesn't exist in every raw crystal. Why crystals? Good question! It is the basic nature of quartz crystals to amplify and project energy. The crystal does not in any way differentiate between positive or negative energy, and will dutifully amplify & project either with reliable redundancy.
is an equal opportunity tool in that it will amplify
& project all forms of energy equally, whether electrical, mental, or
emotional. Naturally occurring quartz
crystal comes in a vast array of colors and types, and each one is a
specialist. From the clear quartz
'generator' crystal for all occasion, every day use, to lavender & rose
quartz which have more specific uses; it always comes down to the right tool
for the job at hand. Quartz crystal
& diamond are the royalty of the mineral kingdom which includes literally a
planet full of precious and semi-precious stones, each bearing it's own gift of
frequency and vibration, which may be used by themselves, or combined with
crystals to amplify & project that gift of specific energy. Crystal
Natural formed quartz crystal always forms in a six sided configuration with the body tapering into a point. Energy is absorbed thru the base, and is amplified as it runs along the crystal's C-axis, where the amplified energy is then projected outward from the tip or point. This is why you will often see people in a crystal shop moving a crystal around the palm of their hand, they are assessing the strength of the 'signal' being emitted from the crystal. It's not unlike checking a box of eggs for breakage prior to purchase; a crystal with a broken or damaged C-axis isn't going to process energy very efficiently. You will recall I mentioned crystals will amplify and project all energy equally well, which is why two 'rules' are paramount. Firstly, you never want to make quick, slashing movements with a crystal in your hand, (think Light Saber) and secondly, if you handle crystals when in a foul, negative mood, that is what you will be amplifying & projecting. Garbage in - garbage out! Up until now we have used crystals to assist in things such as meditation, healing, and uplifting the energy of living spaces. Nowadays as we effort to secure our seat on the 5D bus, we are also using the crystals in our toolbox, and finding new ones, to assist us in raising our vibration to the threshold of evolution.
In an upcoming post we will be discussing the divergence, or splitting of the timeline in some depth. However, for the current discussion it is sufficient to just say that the timeline is going to split into two; one will be the continuation of the current status quo, and the other will be the path to the 5D bus terminal. The only question you should be asking yourself right now is; which path do I want to be on? If your answer is the status quo then I suppose the good news for you is "no homework"- it's party time! If your soul is fed up with this place and you're determined to graduate to the truly interesting course of study in 5D ~ then you may also feel the need to work on raising you vibration as part of your spiritual practice. That's the really cool thing about the mineral kingdom, it does not play favorites; but rather works just fine where ever you incorporate it.
I should point out here that the following information is generally aimed at those who have already been working on maintaining their aura and chakras in a healthy, clean and balanced state. If these terms are new to you then as they say, you have some catching up to do. The point is that if you begin using tools to facilitate raising your vibration and energy while that energy is full of debris and blockages, your results will be far less than optimal. Think of it like removing any junk or rocks from the lawn before using the lawnmower. As I mentioned, crystals will amplify & project whatever energy they absorb so it just makes all kinds of sense to make certain our own energy system is as healthy and balanced as possible before reaching into the toolbox for some of these power tools we'll be discussing here.
The first consideration in raising your vibration should be your personal living space. It is generally a great idea to pitch and have done with anything (anyone) in your environment that projects a negative vibe or feeling. Window sills are an excellent place to display quartz crystal in the home as they thrive on sunlight, and will project that energy into your living space, as well as being aesthetically pleasing to the eye and spirit. The larger, palm sized polished quartz 'generators' are ideal for home environment and tend to maintain a harmonious ambience, especially when more than one are being used. If you customarily include uplifting music or sound in your spiritual practice you will find that adding crystals to the room will enhance and empower the auditory aspect very nicely indeed.
Considering that we are these multi-dimensional energy beings many of these specialty crystals listed below will share that attribute in both subtle and profound ways. Some of these crystals may be familiar to you while others will be new found friends to help in your journey of becoming. Before jumping in, it should be noted that often times there will be two different 'names' for some crystals, as there seems to be an element which seeks to commercialize and establish patented trade names, etc. We shall endeavor to address such confusion where it arises as we traverse the various types of crystals. Furthermore, some of these elements manifest as both raw specimens, and crystals, depending largely upon the strata in which they were discovered and the terminology of stone can apply to either and both in general usage.
When you first hold a crystal or specimen of Azeztulite the overwhelming sensation is one of being in the presence of an exceedingly lovely light. The energy of this stone shows no negativity, or even neutrality, it is most definitely a positive element and as such is one of only four stones known to date which never need cleansing or energizing. When holding Azeztulite it tends to produce an encircling spiral of movement to energy. When used in meditation this spiral flow is predisposed to become the kundalini rising ~ surrounding ones essence at the same time it is within the body. Placed over the brow chakra, or 'third eye" Azeztulite will stimulate quite vivid 'motion' pictures which with practice can even be 'pictures' and glimpses of the future!! Not bad for a stone almost nobody has ever heard of before recent times, as it is one of the emerging power stones for the Aquarian age.
In the book "The Book of Stones" co-author Robert Simmons tells the story of how the original discovery of Azeztulite led to him obtaining the very first specimens, through channeled information back around 1970. Perhaps not surprisingly, Azeztulite, as it turns out was channeled from interdimensional beings known as the Azez who facilitated the emergence of the stone as an important tool for lightworkers. The name Azez seems to mean "Nameless Light" and the embodiment of that light in the universe. Azeztulite therefore is not only used for communicating with the Azez but it also holds and projects the energy of The Nameless Light and it's manifestation from the Great Central Sun. This stone will be a great help to those with telepathic abilities, and dimensional engineers. It will assist in reclaiming knowledge from your genetic memory banks. This Aquarian age that we're in now is all about opening ourselves to expanding levels of reality and reconnecting to source. Azeztulite carries this energy and when we resonate with it we are opened to the broader perspectives. Azeztulite is truly tuned to the higher dimensional planes: It fills the energy body with spiritual light, allowing one to become a beacon of light in this place, it makes us each a window thru which light passes from the higher realms.
Lemurian Starseed Laser Wands
Firstly, here we have one of those cases of two or more names for the same crystal. You will see them referred to as above, or as just 'seed crystals' which actually means something else altogether, which we will cover in a bit; or as simply 'laser wands', or as Lemurian seed, or Lemurian lasers. All of these terms are talking about the same thing, so, "a rose by any other name", eh? These crystals are a distinct variety of quartz with some very intriguing physical characteristics. They come from the
Diamantina region of , long known for it's deposits of long, slender 'laser
wand' crystals. The term Lemurian Starseed
refers to both the decidedly yin, or feminine aspect of the crystals, (Lemuria)
and their extraterrestrial origins, (starseed).
They exhibit the traditional six sides, base and termination as natural
quartz, but the resemblance ends there.
Laser wands are long and tapered, with their sides being rough and often
irregular. They very often have unique
markings, or etchings on them, and almost always display ladder-like grooves
crossing the body of the crystal. These ladder like etchings are sometimes
referred to as "file folders" because they contain information, and
resemble a row of file folders. Due to
the small termination or point, these crystals are excellent for clearing areas
of negativity, to create protective barriers, and to 'beam' healing energy to
ourselves and others. Brazil
The essence of laser wands is that of assisting us to reclaim that nurturing, loving and balancing spiritual consciousness which humanity in general seems to have lost. They help to balance our perspective from a more advanced point of view; blending the energies of Atlantis, and Lemuria in a single tool. Because of their Yin polarity these crystals work very well with Azeztulite, Moldavite, Kunzite and Rose Quartz. The more masculine Atlantean energies needed to counterbalance can be found in Herkimer Diamonds, Siberian Blue quartz, and any stone cut in the shape of the platonic solids. Additionally, Lemurian starseeds which are also "Dow crystals" offer the additional attributes of enhancing one's ability in channeling, and telepathy. They assist with opening the transpersonal chakras above the head, and in ultimately attaining the resonance of Christ Consciousness.
Named after Jane Ann Dow, the late crystal researcher & author who discovered them, Dow crystals combine the attributes and properties of two types of 'Master Crystals', the transmitter, and the channeler. Being able to both send and receive energy and light simultaneously makes these very unique crystals a must have for the toolbox.
The Dow crystal can easily be identified by the specific geometry of the six facets which form the termination or point of the crystal. The specific geometry you're looking for is 7,3,7,3,7,3. That is to say that the facets will alternate between having three sides, and seven sides. If the geometry of the facets forming the point do not exhibit this exact geometry, it isn't a Dow crystal.
When used in meditation the Dow crystal enables a smoother, easier communication link with our higher selves, or any other entities we may be in communication with. It aids in the suppressing of mental static & chatter which can intrude into meditations, further it promotes clarity in all communications during meditation. Dow crystals can be a tremendous help with healing issues of the heart chakra. The Dow geometry mirrors that of the trinity, which denotes completion thru unconditional love. Very often, this mirror of loving perfection is all the heart chakra needs to throw off blockages caused by negative memories. Dow crystals can be powerful tools to assist us in disassociating from the pain we feel as we over-identify with the sufferings of others, and the woes of our world. By working with Dow crystals, they help us understand that everything exists in a state of perfection which can shift awareness and change our understanding of suffering. Instead of identifying with the suffering of others and taking that on as our own burden, Dow crystals help us to identify with, and become that perfection.
Tibetan Quartz Crystals
Some of the most elegant and beautiful crystals come from places like
, in the Arkansas . They are
exceptionally clear, and bright, many of them with cloudy wisps of inclusions
that just enhance their beauty. These
are very young crystals, and the energy pulsing down their C-axis is vibrant,
fast and hard to ignore. Some of the
oldest looking and 'most experienced' appearing crystals come from places like USA . They occur as
both clear and smoky quartz, however the clear variety is harder to find these
days. These are not typically the kind
of crystal you display, or allow others to handle. The energy coursing down the C-axis of
Tibetan crystals is slow and strong, yet has a smoothness to it that belies the
power within. These are the tools of
shamans, and when not in use, should be wrapped and protected. Tibet
Tibetan quartz contains a most powerful "
Smoky quartz is one of the most powerful grounding & clearing stones available in the mineral kingdom. Like the smoke of a sage bundle, the energy of Smoky Quartz cleanses & clears the auric field and human energy system. Especially when we are increasingly working in the higher realms, activating the upper chakras, and the light body; Smoky Quartz can help one come back to the body and physical realm. This stone is one of the premier protection stones as it offers protection from negative energies in the environment. It can absorb and transmute a tremendous amount of negativity, grounding it right into Gaia where she will put it to good use. Smoky quartz has the tendency to draw the ethereal into physical manifestation, hence it becomes much easier to see spirit guides and other energetic entities.
This stone tends to penetrate and dissolve negative energy fields generated by negative thought forms, anger and resentment. Smoky Quartz balances the Yin-Yang energy and can be used to align the physical meridians with their ethereal counterparts. It fosters mind-energy-emotion balance in the individual, attuning the energies required for spiritual development. Smoky Quartz is prized by shamans for it's ability to enhance communication with other beings in other realms as it also attenuates discrimination, and protection. The brownish color of this stone generally is caused by exposure to natural radiation. Because it is already resonant with the frequencies of radiation, it can be used effectively to counter excessive electromagnetic fields, and sources of natural background radiation in ones environment. Your toolbox simply isn't up to snuff if you don't have a couple nice pieces of Smoky Quartz! Note: Steer way clear of what's known as "Irradiated Smoky Quartz"- which is clear quartz bombarded with ultra high bursts of radiation to darken them to resemble real, naturally occurring smoky Quartz crystals. The process of irradiation essentially 'kills' the crystal, rendering it useful only for contaminating your environment with unwanted residual radiation.
The next suggestion for your shaman's toolbox is the Herkimer diamond, which of course is not actually a diamond at all. These exceptionally clear and bright double terminated crystals are found almost exclusively in Herkimer county,
the name. There are many clear and
striking double terminated crystals which are not Herkimer diamonds, the
tell-tale give away feature is that true Herkimer diamonds have little black
flecks of carbon deposits. New
These crystals beyond almost all others are manifestations of pure spiritual light. Their high, harmonious energy is at the upper range of the vibratory spectrum. These diamonds emanate the brightest crystal light and will help attune your energy to the white light of divine essence, unconditional love. These crystals are most excellent meditation partners; and a great many folks place them near their bed, or within the pillowcase as they are known to help with both having and remembering very vivid dreams. Wearing or carrying Herkimer diamonds can give one the grace of a constant, almost subliminal connection to the higher spiritual realms. There is bliss and rapture in the vibration of Herkimer diamonds, and they can be used in the process of vibrational ascension. We must take ourselves as far as we can towards the higher spiritual octaves, while still remaining in the physical body and connected with the earth. This is the process of the spiritualization of matter and it is what many of us came to help accomplish.
Synthetic quartz crystals
Synthetic, or lab grown crystals have been on the scene for many years now, and at first, I didn't give them the credibility they deserve. They are created by first forming an artificial C-axis using what is called a 'seed crystal'. This seed crystal is a long, very thin strand of conductive material which is then placed in the exact center of the crystal mold. The exact process is a highly guarded secret, but when finished, the new man made crystal pops out of the mold looking very much like a man made crystal. On most of the lab grown quartz I have handled (a lot) the original seed has vanished without a trace. The lab grown crystals I've found to have the most power, are those where a slight 'ghost image' of the original seed can still be seen running from point to point on the crystal. There are now many styles, colors and configurations for lab grown quartz but for the present discussion there is only one that you will find useful, and that is the Siberian Blue Quartz. The energy of the Siberian blue is one of assisting in the areas of mental clarity and perception. This man made artificial quartz helps to calm the mind, facilitating better concentration and critical thought. As such this synthetic mineral can be very helpful to those who do a lot of multi-tasking in the everyday 4D world we are navigating our way thru.
Just as with any toolbox, your heavy hitters are going to need the expertise of some secondary players who are all specialists in their field and will add their unique properties & attributes to whatever work you may be doing, whether meditation, healing or ascension. This selection will by no means be 'complete' by many standards but is intended to give you a good understanding of the energies and how to work with them. Experimentation & customization is encouraged! Note: It is highly recommended that whenever possible, one should obtain specimens of these stones which have been cut into spheres, pyramids, wands, or any of the platonic solids. Spheres are especially useful as they emanate their energetic field out in all directions evenly.
The Black Stones
All of the black stones in the mineral kingdom are experts at dealing with negativity in all of it's various forms, therefore each black stone has a unique specialty to offer, and the prepared lightworker or shaman should have a good selection of each of these special ops warriors.
Black Obsidian is the bouncer of the mineral kingdom. Whenever negative energy is generated in proximity to black obsidian this stone simply refuses entry, by rather forcefully pushing the negative energy away. This stone is a must in many situations, including having some placed about the house.
Black Onyx is a grief counselor. It has the ability to lessen our experience of grief, to enhance self-control, and to encourage happiness and good fortune.
Black Opal has a very subtle but strong energy which acts in a way that lessens or removes depression. It has been used to 'read eyes', providing insights to and information about the person of concern...in this way it functions as a kind of 'truth detector'...resisting the encroachment of the negativity of deception. It is also an excellent grounding stone which simultaneously stimulates activity.
Essentially, Jet is a type of fossilized tree resin, which gives it it's rather unique feel when holding it; it almost feels more like plastic than stone. Jet will be a constant companion once you first experience this highly unique energy. When holding, or wearing Jet, it is literally impossible to think a negative thought about yourself! Jet will also dispel fearful thoughts and protects the wearer against illness and violence. These combined traits make it very helpful in combating depression. What a wonderful friend to have in your pocket, or locket.
The gift of Black Tourmaline is that it acts to protect one from being victimized by the negative energy of another. This stone acts much like a negative energy deflector, as it repels, rather than absorbs the unwanted frequencies. In this way, it is an excellent wingman for black obsidian in your toolbox, as together they make a pretty unbeatable team. Black tourmaline thusly, is an excellent pocket stone for anyone with potential exposure to excessive amounts of radiation. It provides for an increase in one's physical vitality, emotional stability, and intellectual acuity; and can maintain one's spirits even in conditions which appear to emit messages of gloom & doom. Another must have stone for today's world.
Simply put, Rose Quartz is the pre-eminent centerpiece stone for the Heart chakra, as it's essence is that of timeless, ageless, all encompassing, unconditional love. It can soothe and heal even the deepest of emotional scars when used with Malachite and Kunzite together. To me, Rose Quartz and Kunzite are the love sisters; because when held together or meditated with one immediately gets the feeling of being embraced by the All-Mother herself.
Kunzite is one of my personal favorites, as it activates the heart chakra, and aligns the heart & throat chakras to the third eye chakra, which is just really nice, by the way. It synthesizes the energies to produce loving thoughts and communication. Just holding this stone produces a feeling of a powerful peace gently penetrating the inner core of your being. Kunzite connects us to the infinite source of love and provides purification on all levels. It dissolves negativity, raising the vibration of the surrounding area. Kunzite is so connected to infinite love it can even be used to dispel possession from outside influences. This stone provides protection to the outer areas of the auric field, producing a shield from unwanted energies.
Moldavite is the only green, translucent meteorite, and it is also the planet's only gem quality meteorite. The only reason we have it is because almost fifteen million years ago a very large meteorite crashed to earth in what is now the Bohemian plateau of the
, and that strew field is the only place on earth it
is found. After more than twenty years since it's modern discovery, Moldavite is becoming rarer & more valuable
every day. When the last piece has been
scooped up, there will be no more; as most folks just won't part with a piece
unless they have a surplus, and maybe not even then, that's how powerful and
popular this stone is! Czech Republic
In modern times Moldavite has emerged as one of the stones most prized for metaphysical purposes. It's effects can have a wide and sometimes wild variety, from mild, to almost overwhelming. From physical cleansings to spiritual breakthroughs with the common denominator being the revitalization and acceleration of one's path of personal evolution. Moldavite's energies can activate any and all of the 12 chakras in the human energy system. It's vibrations tend to focus in areas where one has blockages, and emotional wounds. Resonance with Moldavite can open many pathways to many experiences in many areas of life, always it seems with the end result being that of a catalyst for shifts in awareness and energy. Moldavite also offers an energy of spiritual protection. When you are in alignment with the Moldavite resonance, negative entities or energies simply cannot connect with or hang onto the auric field. No Klingons! Moldavite is one of the pre-eminent power stones for the Aquarian age, and one should seek to obtain as much as they can afford before supplies are exhausted.
Pietersite is another one of my all time favorite stones from the mineral kingdom, and is a most powerful transformational tool to have in your collection. This beautiful stone can be used to stimulate the pineal gland and to usher in visions & precognitive thoughts during meditation.
The unique aspect to this stone is that it provides excellent grounding, not to the earth, but to the etheric body. This rarity in grounding ability has facilitated travel throughout the spheres of existence, culminating in access to the Akashic Records. Pietersite is said to contain the keys to the kingdom of heaven; dispelling one's illusions, and helping one to see and activate the loving energy and traits of the Brotherhood of humanity; and the beauty of the soul.
Astrophyllite is a most excellent partner for those who venture out into the other realms via astral travel. Those who venture into the higher realms above the astral will come to appreciate the benefits and gifts of this stone.
This stone helps to attain lucidity in both dreams, and travels within the higher planes, helps to see cause & effect, and to help make better decisions in the moment. "Know thyself" is the keyword and mantra for this lovely stone. If you are willing to work with it a while in meditation, Astrophyllite can reveal the hidden pattern of your divine blueprint; or life purpose.
Orgone is a very effective way to treat and eliminate "electro smog" from the personal environment & habitat. This discordant electro smog energy is produced by nearly every man made electrical device; electrical interference from the meter box, the power lines supplying your house, the wires running inside your walls, computers, microwaves, satellite dishes, cordless phones -you get the picture, we're swimming in the stuff every day. Orgonite, which is made from resin, crystals,& metals; has the ability to take on the negative energy output of any environment. It also tackles ley lines, helps animals, and helps in stressed work environments from classrooms to offices. It improves plant growth, and helps to re-balance the environment. Orgonite/Orgone will help with personal negative energy clearing if carried around in a pocket. It works to empower intentions and visualizations, and will also raise personal vibration & help facilitate the meditative state. I was gifted a piece of this material with a recent purchase from Blue Sun in the UK, linked below of course, and was immediately very impressed with the energy of the innocuous looking little thing. First thing I did was to place it on my brow chakra, and it activated the third eye in a pleasing wash of energy. Nice! I promptly sent off for another dozen pieces, and when they came I placed them in a circular pattern on an end table, and forgot about them for the moment. Some time later I was reaching for something beyond the circle of Orgonite and when my hand entered the space above the circle I immediately felt a coolness, and reduction of temperature. I had two friends visiting at the time, and they both felt the same effect! I meditate with it, carry it in two pockets, and when things get dull, I pick up some Orgonite and Moldavite together...."Wanna take a ride?"
For many years folks have been crafting precious and semi-precious stones into jewelry for much more than the esthetic beauty. As you come to know both yourself, and the mineral kingdom better it becomes an easy thing to see which stones will be optimal for whatever journey may await you. There is always something for everyone, from rings, to amulets, necklaces and wristbands, to ear rings or just what have you.
Pictured above are two examples of the Energy Ring from NilssonTech (link below) which utilizes Tesla coil technology to actually assist the flow & balance of one's daily energy levels. Each ring is hand made by the designer, Isidro Nilsson. I acquired two matched pairs of Energy Rings, one set in silver, the other in copper back in 1998, and still use them today, because you just tend to stick with what works. So, yes, I wholeheartedly endorse these rings, and no I'm getting nothing on the back end, no kickback or percentage, just trying to connect my friends to my gifted, and talented brother, that's all. Another piece of prescription jewelry I endorse from personal use is the various designs of Vajra Pendants from Shambhala Healing Tools, (also linked below).
Personally, I opted for a Siberian Blue crystal in my Vajra pendant, to go with the same type crystal in the full sized Vajra I had custom made, and they compliment each other very well....but there are a great many other types of lab grown crystals available as well. Something for everyone as I say. These pendants tend to infuse their energy into and around your energy field; strengthening, and protecting it from unwanted environmental vibrations of negativity. If it was a good idea 15 years ago then it's an even better idea today.
Over the last thirty years a great many individuals have sought to construct advanced crystal tools, of various designs and for various purposes. To cover this subject properly would be a blog post in and of itself, and more likely a book; so instead I would just like to share with you some tools with which I have had long personal experience and satisfaction. this will include, Vogel cut crystals, Vajras, Metaforms, and
Vogel cut crystals
The late Marcel Vogel had a dream in which he was shown how to cut a piece of raw quartz into a double terminated crystal, with but four sides. It took over a year to complete the first one; as cutting so as to retain the C-axis, or growth axis is very demanding work. His vision was to custom create a crystalline energy converter which would absorb little amounts of energy and deliver large amounts of healing, and communication energy. Subsequent designs included hand cut natural crystals with 6, 8, and 12 sides, or facets, and shamans & lightworkers grab them up whenever they find a true Vogel original.
The Vogel cut crystal creates a coherent field of energy which acts as a carrier wave of information, unlike natural occurring quartz. The differing tip angles create a diode effect with energy transmitted from one tip to the other. These crystals are extremely well suited to both the work of healing and the business of raising one's own vibrational frequency resonance. Since Marcel Vogel's passing several years ago many others have attempted to duplicate his work without success. It takes more than the ability to reproduce exact cuts and ratios, it takes the loving intent & high consciousness vibration that Marcel put into each crystal. These are very excellent energy crystals, and similar to Moldavite; when the last of the originals are gone, there will be no more true Vogel cut crystals, even though his company still produces them.
Another powerful energy tool for shamans and lightworkers is the line of crystal Vajras created by Shambhala Healing Tools. These come in a wide variety of configurations to achieve different ends. All of them include a full size lab grown quartz crystal, with sacred metaform designs on either end. The number of possible configurations/crystals is quite impressive and will honor the something for everyone credo.
Although different folks use them in different ways for various purposes, I obtained my Christ Consciousness Vajra to use in meditation and to maintain / increase my personal vibration. Funny story- Because they are all hand made to order at the Shambhala temple, I had to wait several weeks for my new power tool to arrive, and when it did; once I first picked it up I did not want to let go of it...so it went nearly everywhere with me for the first week or so. One evening a friend and I are having dinner at a local popular restaurant and I casually set the Vajra down on the table, off to the side. After twice looking at it with increasing curiosity, our waitress finally asked me what that thing was, and I replied, "Well, it's kind of a universal remote control." The waitress thinks this over for about five seconds then asks, "A remote control for what?" - to which I replied, "The Universe." After using this implement for over a dozen years I still cannot come up with a better description for the thing. They ain't cheap, but then the very best tools seldom are!
Not everyone is drawn to crystal skulls, but for those who are there can be few experiences as profoundly life altering. I used to hang out sometimes at this little bohemian style import shop in
because I liked the collection of energy from all
over the globe. Way in the back was a
single oblong display case containing huge crystals, spheres, pyramids, and
crystal skulls, all direct from south america.
Once he got to know me the owner would even allow me to open the case
myself to check out this thing or that, as it saved him time for other
customers. He generally had these two,
life size crystal skulls in the case, along with a handful of smaller, palm
sized skulls carved from various stones.
The two large ones were always there due to their hefty price tags, and
oddly, I was never drawn to them, or any of the smaller stone skulls. That is until the day I walked in and spied
an original Damien Quinn carved clear quartz crystal skull. Everett, Washington
Damien Quinn was the carver who turned out the most stunning and brilliant small crystal skulls coming out of south america twenty years ago. You can identify one of his originals by the cleft notch cut into the chin. The moment I saw this thing it grabbed my attention like nothing has before or since. When I picked it up my entire auric field lit up like a Christmas tree and I had tingles running up & down my spine. OK, here was a skull I was definitely attracted to! The price tag was more than a month's rent, including utilities. Although I had the money to cover it, I'd be eating mac & cheese for a long while if I did, so I decided to do the responsible thing and go home to meditate on the purchase. Once in my happy place I simply asked my higher self if buying this crystal skull was something I needed to do. The reply came back in the form of two hand written (scrawled) pages of cleaning and clearing procedures I was to perform; including letting it soak for three hours in a fast moving natural stream, out in the country! Considering that I had my answer, I returned to the import grotto and became the steward of a magnificent crystal skull, a duty I continue to enjoy today. In ancient times, mystics and magicians would carry one or more small crystal skulls in their "toolbox," used primarily as data storage and retrieval devices, or skull drives if you like. They were used the same exact way we use 'thumb' drives and such today; as a means of storing great amounts of knowledge and information for later use. Nothing has changed from those times till today, except the illusion of linear time.
Those of you who have been really paying attention will have noticed a couple of concurrent themes running through this collection of ascension crystals and stones. The primary theme is that all or most of the items mentioned here do very nice things around the vibration of unconditional love, and the attainment of that frequency resonance. The other recurring theme is grounding and protection. If you are not grounded your energy, no matter how brilliant, will dissipate and loose vitality. If you are not protected, you may risk encounters with unwanted and undignified energy or entities. Of course the final recurring theme is that of steadily increasing your personal vibration, higher, and higher still. One day at a time; one note or one octave at a time, always seek to be increasing your vibratory resonance in every way that seems natural & normal to you. If something feels wrong for you, it probably is, so heed your own advice and don't go there.
Now you know how I intend getting out of this place: Spiral out ~ keep going! Ever onward, ever upward, towards the resonance of 5D, and the smell of good old home cooking. Look me up when you get there; we'll have a brew or two and a nice long visit.
Until Next Time ~ Be Good to Each Other !
