The idea of a crystal being anything more than a pretty rock sounds like new age hooey. But there is more to this life than the physical dimension. Our current definition of what makes something alive versus dead is inadequate. It is time that we began looking at the concept of “alive” in terms of consciousness.
Minerals, especially Crystals, are “alive”. That is, they are conscious. They are aware. They think and perceive. The Earth itself is comprised of mostly iron, silicate rock, and oxygen. You could consider mineral energy to be the original manifestation of the consciousness that we call mother earth, which also is its own living being.
The governing law of every dimension within the universe is that of “oneness”. In physical life, we have come to call this the “Law of Attraction”. Simply put, only frequencies that are a vibrational match can co-exist. Therefore, in order to share the same space with another “form”, you must be vibrating at the same level as it is vibrating.
Health is the natural state of any form within the universe. Therefore, the natural inclination and tendency of anything within the universe is that of balance, cohesiveness and ease. This means that the natural progression of vibration is to entrain and resonate in the direction of health. Because of this, when you share the space a crystal (or gemstone) that has a resistance free vibration, instead of the vibration of the crystal adopting a non-cohesive pattern, your energy will entrain with the energy of the crystal and adopt its cohesive pattern. Because of this entrainment effect, crystals and gemstones are incredibly adept at bringing us back into a vibrational state of health and harmony.
Anything with an inherent energetic pattern of non-resistance can act like a tuning fork, by offering a vibration that we can use to re-tune ourselves to a healthy vibration. This is what is really happening on the energetic levels of substructure when you listen to a song that makes you feel good, or spend time near a person that makes you feel good, or take a homeopathic remedy.
Crystals are living beings. So, once you can get over the socially conditioned embarrassment of talking to a rock… you will discover that they are more like very good friends or family members than they are “tools”.
