If beauty were the only function of the mineral kingdom it would be purpose enough. It is perhaps even more miraculous that the shapes and colours of crystals have particular purposes which can help to guide us on our spiritual paths.
Thanks so much for your interest and for sharing with me my great pleasure and love of Crystals.
A Crystal is like a butterfly ….
it goes where it pleases and pleases wherever it goes.
Living with and Loving Crystals has been a part of my life for some years now and they have been by my side through many trials and much growth. During this time I have collected some wonderful and unique specimens.
The inherent nature of Crystals is such that they know when to move on. Accordingly, I let much of my collection leave me some years ago now, to enable them to seek other people with whom to share their Love and great healing and insights. I very gratefully appreciate the period spent with these friends and accept that my time with some of them had finished at that stage and looked forward to them moving on to new Keepers.
Time always moves and turns though, and I am once again in a stage where I seek the energy and bond of Crystals to enhance and embellish my life with their wonderful energies. I am also offering to assist you, the Keeper of your own Crystals, with any of my thoughts and knowledge gained from my dear Friends of the Earth.
Having worked closely with the Faeries during my friendship with these Crystals, you will find that there is a wonderful energy connected to them all, combining the qualities from both the Mineralogical Kingdom and the Devic Kingdom.
I wish you much pleasure and healing from the precious stones you choose, or those who may choose you as their new Keeper of the Crystals.
- AMERICAN INDIAN LEGEND OF CRYSTALS
In ancient times, people lived in harmony with Nature. They spoke the same language as the animals and plants. They hunted for food only to satisfy their hunger and needs, always offering a prayer of thanks for what they had taken from Nature.
As time went on, humans lost this innocence and harmony. They took more than they needed. They forgot their prayers of gratitude. They killed animals, and each other, for sport or pleasure.
The Bear Tribe, chief among the animals, called a meeting of all the animals. They decided that something had to be done. The Bears suggested that they shoot back when the humans shot at them, but the bow and arrow required too great a sacrifice, for one bear would have to give up his life so that his sinew could be used for the bowstring. The bear’s claws were too long for shooting a bow anyway, and would become entangled on the string.
The Deer Tribe offered another method of dealing with the problem. One of their members said, “We will bring disease into the world. Each of us will be responsible for a different illness. When humans live out of balance with Nature, when they forget to give thanks for their food, they will get sick.” And in fact the Deer did invoke rheumatism and arthritis; each animal then decided to invoke a different disease.
The Plant Tribe was more sympathetic and felt that this was too harsh a punishment, so they volunteered their help. They said that for every disease a human gets, one of them would be present to cure it. That way, if people used their intelligence, they would be able to cure their ailments and regain their balance.
All of Nature agreed to this strategy. One plant in particular spoke out. This was Tobacco, the chief of the plants. He said, “I will be the sacred herb. I will not cure any specific disease, but I will help people return to the sacred way of life, provided I am smoked or offered with prayers and ceremony. But if I am misused, if I am merely smoked for pleasure, I will cause cancer; the worst disease of all.”
The close friends of the Plant Tribe, the Rock Tribe and the Mineral Tribe, agreed to help. Each mineral would have a spiritual power, a subtle vibration that could be used to regain perfect health. The Ruby, worn as an amulet, would heal the heart; the Emerald would heal the liver and eyes, and so on. The chief of the Mineral Tribe, Quartz Crystal, was clear, like the light of Creation itself. Quartz put his arms around his brother Tobacco and said, “I will be the sacred mineral. I will heal the mind. I will help human beings see the origin of disease. I will help to bring wisdom and clarity in dreams. And I will record their spiritual history, including our meeting today, so that in the future, if humans gaze into me, they may see their origin and the way of harmony.” And so it is today.
This is a Cherokee legend, but it has been told in almost every tribe. It tells of an ancient time of peace, a mythical homeland known to every culture on Earth. The Native Americans call it the ‘old way‘ or the ‘original way‘.
For me, the place is Shambhala. I invite you to take a tour of the Crystals aspect of our site and enjoy the energy vibrations and beauty of the crystals found within. As you will well understand, it is very difficult to photograph a crystal and do it the justice it deserves …. so apologies about the lack of clarity in some of the pics.
The CRYSTAL POWER page details some of the amazing attributes of crystals. Stories of the powers and uses of crystals have come down to us from the beginning of time. Crystal Power amplifies universal forces that can be used to modify, accumulate and direct the powerful mental, psychic and material energies of being. I have included here a couple of devices that can be used to heal, direct energies, communicate with entities from other worlds, as well as to travel through time and the astral planes.
The HEALING page details varying aspects on how and what crystals to use and the abilities the crystals have to assist with healing. This is by no means complete, but designed to give the reader enough insight to delve further themselves.
Please enjoy your time here and contact me (link at foot of page) if you have any queries that cannot be answered on these pages. we would love to enjoy your company in one of our WORKSHOPS.
