Types of Crystals

Crystals are defined as solid minerals, in which component ions, atoms, and molecules are arranged in a regular structure. It is this orderly arrangement of the constituent particles that gives all types of crystals a straight edge and flat surface. Examples of common crystals include salt, sugar, snowflakes, gemstones, rubies and diamonds. Each of the crystal types possess a specific shape and different properties, based on which they are classified.

There are seven crystal systems or groups, each of which have a distinct atomic lattice. The atomic lattice is a three-dimensional network of atoms that are arranged in a symmetrical pattern. The shape of the lattice determines not only which crystal system the stone belongs to, but all of its physical properties and appearance. In some crystal healing practices, the axial symmetry of a crystal is believed to directly influence its metaphysical properties.

Crystal healing is a phenomenon wherein the properties of crystals and stones are used to manipulate our thoughts and emotions, so as to help manage anger, stress, depression, disease symptoms, and other negative energies in the body. With the increased popularity of crystal healing, rigorous studies have been done on crystals and their meanings.

Crystal Healing Alternative – Chakra Therapy

Many people use crystal as an alternative therapy… and you may have also heard people talking about crystal healing before but are not really sure what they are talking about.

Crystal Healing is an alternative therapy which is used along side with traditional methods of healing the human body as well as the mind and soul. An healer use different Crystals and Minerals when pro-forming a healing session on a person.

Crystal Energy

Crystal energy can be used to increase the energies that help healing the body and mind. Unbalances in the body’s energy field can be caused by the mind focusing on negative aspects. Crystal energy helps change negative energies and replaces them with positive energies.

Crystal energy affects your body by balancing your body’s energy. I will not be touching here on the use of crystals healing by means of a healer; however, I will focus on the use of crystal energy and the theory behind healing crystals and gemstones.

The theory behind crystal energy is to do with the Quantum theory. The Quantum theory considers the Universe and all things that make it, as existing in an empty space with forms of energy moving within each space. Of course this includes our physical body which is a space with energy flowing infinitely through its own space. Your body’s energy is used when you breath and when you show emotions and thoughts.

The healing processes of crystals and gemstones are considered a special flow of energy that change the way the destructive energy flows. This special flow of energy can be helped by the use of healing crystals and gemstones to improve and speed up the healing processes. Crystals and gemstones can be used as a tool to give the healing flow of energy an important boost in adding power to achieve cures.

Crystal energy and crystals are a tool that can enhance not just your health, but anything you undertake. Although crystals and gemstones occupy a different space than our body and mind, within the Universe there occur an interaction between your body and mind and the energy forms. This interaction is executed through shared properties resulting from the energy flow.

For example, the electromagnetic properties of a Quartz crystal share the same type of electromagnetic properties of the body, thus somehow the crystal’s electromagnetic energy flows can positively interact with the same electromagnetic energy flow of the human body.

The quantum theory helps to explain the effect of crystals in our psychological and biological life. Even disregarding the Quantum theory, the use of healing crystals and gemstones has been a beneficial practice used by people throughout centuries. This practice is very beneficial for the healing processes.

Crystals and their colors correspond to chakra points in your body. These have been found to have cleansing and energizing properties that interact with the body causing them to work on problem areas. Appling the energy of the crystals and gemstones to the body enhances the cleansing and energizing effect to the body.

Below is a list of the chakras and most popular crystals used in healing.

Root Chakra: Jasper (bloodstone), garnet, onyx and rubies.

Second Chakra: Hematite and moonstone.

Third Chakra: Citrine, amber and topaz.

Fourth Chakra: Rose quartz and Chinese Fluorite.

Fifth Chakra: Aquamarine and turquoise.

Six Chakra: Sapphire, turquoise and amethyst.

Seventh Chakra: Clear quartz and amethyst.

Healing Stones and Crystals – Crystal Healing – iBuzzle

Want to know more about healing with crystals and gemstones? Read on…

Gemstones and crystals have had a long association with mankind. For centuries, man has used crystals and gemstones to create happiness and healing within his life. These crystals and gemstones are formed under the earth’s surface and contain many minerals. They give out healing energy to the wearer. These crystals are said to synthesize the energy of the sun into healing energy.

There are a variety of healing gemstones and crystals available in the market. All of these stones possess qualities which can be desired by any or all of us. So which gemstone or crystal is just right for us? The answer is not so simple. Go with what you feel. Hold the stone in your hand and let go of all emotions. Probably only one or two emotions will refuse to go away. For you, the stone will represent those emotions. If that is a happy emotion, go with it. Otherwise the stone is not for you. Alternatively, you can also consult an astrologist or a gem therapist to suggest suitable crystals and gemstones for you.

These crystals and gemstones contain many healing properties. They are made out of minerals which have come together under the surface of the earth. This gives them their unique colors and qualities. There are several methods of using the crystals for healing purposes. Some of them are outlined below.

One of the most common methods of using healing crystals is by placing them on the affected parts of the body. These can be your seven chakras, or just a particular body part. The therapist will use stones that are suited for your body type, and depending on the chakras that are needed to be activated or unblocked.

Another very common method is wearing the crystal. If long term healing or benefit is desired from a particular crystal, then most people prefer to wear the gemstone in a pendant or in a ring.

Another method of healing with crystals is making elixirs from them. This is a fairly simple procedure where you place your chosen crystal in glass bowl of pure spring water and leave it in the sunlight for 12 hours. This water can then be bottled (preferably in a dark glass bottle with an air tight stopper) and can be used for a week. If you want to use the water for a longer time period, you can add 50 percent brandy into it. This elixir can be drunk or added to your bath or used as a spray. However, please study the minerals in a particular crystal before drinking its elixir. Some gemstones and crystals might not be suitable for making elixirs. Either the crystal might be water-soluble or poisonous.

A useful method of healing with crystals is putting the crystal in your bath water. You can also add to the healing environment by burning incense or scented candles and bathe in this relaxing environment. This can be quite a rejuvenating experience.

It has been mentioned before that all crystals have healing properties. You have to find one that suits you the best. You can do that by keeping the crystal with you for a few days and observing the effect. If it does nothing for you, you can ignore it. If it creates a bad feeling, discard it. If you feel good with it, and you notice benefits, then hang on to it.

Cleansing the crystals is also equally important. You can place them in the sunlight or the moonlight for 12 hours after washing them thoroughly under running water. Take care, that water soluble crystals will dissolve by frequent washing.

Here is a list of a few healing properties of crystals and gemstones :

  • Amber: Draws off negative energy, cleanses the aura.
  • Amethyst: Heals and protects the aura, draws divine energy, treatment for acne and arthritis.
  • Tourmaline: Provides a psychic shield, releases toxins.
  • Labradorite: Prevents energy leakage, aligns with spiritual purpose.
  • Quartz: Cleans, protects and increases aura.
  • Smoky Quartz: Grounds energy, dissolves negative patterns in aura.
  • Flourite: Anti-Viral, Dissolves blockages.
  • Moss Agate: Treats fungal infections.
  • Citrine: Clears mental confusion, improves concentration.
  • Carnelian: Re-energizes.
  • Chrysocolla: Releases unresolved grief.
  • Aquamarine: Clams stressed or overactive mind.
  • Yellow Sapphire: Creates abundance.
  • Turquoise: Harnesses creative energies.
  • Rose Quartz: Attracts loving energies.

A story among gemstone fanatics is that when a stone has done its ‘thing’ for you, it will find a way to leave you. So if you find yourself losing a stone at some point, remember, that it has done its job and has moved on. If you persist in getting a replacement stone, then it too will move on. I can say this is true with personal experience.

A gemstone is, thus, a gift of Mother Nature which gives you a lot of energies that are loving and healing and help create an aura of happiness and prosperity.

Book Review: Wisdom Of The Gemstone Guardians

Michael Katz’ Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is unique among crystal healing books in many regards. One thing that sets it apart is that it makes no secret of the fact that is practically entirely ‘channeled’ from spirit entities, the so called ‘Gemstone Guardians.’

Sacagawea – watch more funny videos

At the same time as this may sound ‘airy fairy’ to many conservative health practitioners and even herbalists, author Michael Katz firmly believes this form of methodically approached crystal healing, which he refers to as Gemstone Energy Medicine, has a bright future within the conventional health field.

And Mr. Katz does not stand alone in his conviction. Numerous athletes are firm believers in the power of therapeutic quality gem stones. Testimonials can be found on Katz’ site from Swedish Olympic Medalist Glen Christiansen, British Olympic Swimmer Mark Foster, Arizona Diamondbacks’ Pitcher Tanner Eriksen, and Olympic Trainer and Triathlete Art Dilworth.

Another celebrity testimonial comes from Larry King, of Larry King Live, who can be found quoted on the sleeve of the 1997 edition of this book as saying, “Some inner voice told me to read this book. Thank you, inner voice. What a remarkable study.”

The material in Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is made up of the teachings of twenty-nine ‘Gemstone Guardians,” each of whom is in charge of a particular gemstone. They tell us of the powers and healing qualities of each stone.

Even though Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is technically speaking a non-fiction book, it is so exquisitely well written that it’s actually a more enjoyable read, cover to cover, than most novels. It’s hard to put down once you’ve begun reading it, and I’ve heard of no other book engendering an interest in crystal healing in the previously uninitiated.

It should be noted that Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is not a reference book on crystals. It is an inspirational story with in-depth information about a select few of the most powerful healing gemstones and crystals available on the market today. If you are looking for a reference book, there are better choices. If you’re ready to be set on fire about gemstones, then Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians is the book for you.

The best-selling Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians has been reprinted numerous times. The original title of the book was Gifts of the Gemstone Guardians. A later intermediary edition was sold as Gemisphere Luminary.

Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians contains information on Quarts, Lavender Quartz, Aventurine, Emerald, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Rhodochrosite, Amethyst, Purple Rainbow Fluorite, Blue Sapphire, Indigo (crystalline form of Sodalite), Carnelian, Citrine, Aquamarine, Green Tourmaline, Pink Tourmaline, Sodalite, Leopardskin Jasper, Poppy Jasper, Bloodstone, Ivorite, Opalite, Riverstone, Rhodonite, Malachite, Lapis Lazuli, Black Onyx, Mother of Pearl and Pearl.

Impotence, Infertility, and Sterility (Part 2)

Excessive ejaculation is very detrimental to overall optimal male health. Sperm contains the elixir of life (vitality) and constant loss of this special elixir causes a man to age prematurely. His hair thins, balds and turns grey, his teeth begin to fall out, his hearing and sight becomes bad, he’s constantly fatigued or feeling lethargic, and prone to many sicknesses that claim his health.

Celibacy or temporary periods of sexual (or ejaculatory) fasting allows the spark plugs of the genitals to recharge (rejuvenate and revitalize), in addition to allowing sperm count and production to increase. Celibacy is also warranted to help heal from STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), which is the number one cause of chronic degeneracy of the male sex gland and reproductive system. Chronic sores, bumps, blisters, inflammation, discharges, and rashes debilitate the physical makeup of the male (and female) sex glands or organs and entire reproductive system and are greatly implicated in sterility and infertility.

Most STDs are contracted from recreational sex. God, Biblically speaking, instructed us to have “procreational” sex, but as hypocrites (to God) and loyal imps of the Adversary and his Matrix, we love to pursue and engage in recreational sex. Recreational sex is “wreck creational” (to wreck creation) and that’s exactly what we are and have been foolishly doing – WRECKING God’s creation, especially when you women and girls get pregnant and run to the butcher shop and get an abortion (infanticide), that many of us males are the cause (and financiers) of. I’ll cover abortions and miscarriages in detail in a future article. However, you pay a hidden price for these government-approved acts of legalized murder euphemistically called “abortion” that I will pull your coat tail to (expose, bring to light).

The Adversary’s Matrix keeps us ignorant and unconscious to our lower nature and manipulates us through the imbalances of our lower charkas, especially the root chakra (located at the genitals) and the sacral chakra (located under the belly button). Why do you think its high fashion today for women to wear shirts (blouses) that reveal their belly buttons? By all means am not I telling any woman to stop wearing blouses or even the most revealing clothes. Djehuty is pro freedom, liberation and choice. You do what you want to do. I’m just asking the question “do you know why you’re doing what you do?” Do you know the science behind your fashion, styles, and habits? Do you know why you are piercing your belly buttons today? Do you know what the metals (gold, silver) do to your energy (including your sexual energy) and your sacral chakra? I’m simply asking a question!

Concurring with Author Stewart A. Swerdlow, blatant sexuality is all around us, from fashion to media to everyday speech. This sexuality is a deep, bright red that essentially pulls on your sexual charkas and opens them up. Using color, tone, and archetype (or symbol), these sexual chakras are systematically opened, fed, and energized, expanding them out of proportion until they have control over you. Then you are controlled and manipulated through these chakras.” But when certain people like myself suggest the use of earth’s crystals and gemstones that are naturally red in color and substance which balances and protects the sexual charkas, I’m called a diviner or a practitioner of divination, an occultist, etc.

Your religious leaders and institutions and the public fool (school) system have failed to teach you the metaphysics and metaphysical aspects of life that the Adversary uses against you. Do you deny the sexual perversity, decadence, immorality (fornication and adultery) that takes place in your religious institution or settings, even amongst the officials and leaders? Why do you think sex is so out of control today, but at the same time it’s used to control society (fear of contracting AIDS or STDs, fear of getting pregnant, etc.)?

Sex is connected to fear and fear is the greatest weapon of control on the masses of the people today. But moving along with our topic…

Healing Impotence

To combat or reverse impotence, eat a more vegan-vegetarian based diet and/or consume only sparse amounts of meat (white meat only). Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables, raw and organic fruit, plenty of seeds and nuts (think about it, male sperm is commonly known as “seed” i.e. “to plant seed in a woman”; and ejaculation is commonly referred to as a “nut” or “nutting”, i.e. to bust a nut). The best seeds for a man to eat are pumpkin seeds (papitas) and sunflower seeds due to their rich zinc content. The male prostate gland is chiefly comprised of zinc and with every ejaculation, a man losses vital zinc.

There are a plethora of male-specific hormonal herbs that greatly help heal impotence and degeneracy of the male organ and reproductive system. Yohimbe bark, a powerful African aphrodisiac herb, greatly helps to counteract impotence by its power of increasing and enhancing blood flow to the penis greatly enhancing girth and hang time of the penis. Lycii berry invigorates the blood and can help to increase sperm count and reproductive secretions. Epimedium (Horny Goat weed), a powerful Chinese herb, counteracts premature ejaculation and improves circulation to the penis by its action of dilating the capillaries and larger blood vessels (just like Yohimbe). They don’t call this herb Horny Goat weed for nothing. Epimedium has an effect that makes a man (and a woman) horny and lustful like a goat. Muira Puama, a South American herb commonly known as “potency wood”, is probably the best herb in counteracting im(potence). It has a libido enhancing effect and greatly supports organ regeneration.

Ashwagandha, a powerful Indian or Ayurvedic herb, promotes sexual organ health and regeneration and also has a libido enhancing affect. Damiana, a Mexican aphrodisiac herb, greatly enhances circulation to the penis and energizes the penis. Sarsaparilla nourishes the male sex gland and system and greatly helps reverse conditions of impotence and degeneracy. I could never forget about Stiffcock Strongback. The name says it all for this West Caribbean herb! It is great for a stiff “cock” (penis) in cases of impotence and also strengthens the back which becomes degenerate from a lot of humping. Ever wanted to know why a man was said to be “sowing his oats” in regards to having sex with a woman? This saying has to do with the herb Oat or Oatstraw. Goats are very sexual and lusty creatures, and what do goats in America eat? Oatstraw (grass)! Oatstraw is excellent for the improvement of the male regenerative system.

From time to time (every 4-6 months), I make a tea with all of the foregoing herbs and some other herbs not mentioned, for maintenance of my reproductive system (and one day is all I need). It actually takes control over your body and you almost have no control over your sex organ. The penis does have a mind all of its own. God’s herbs are far more effective than man’s pharmaceutical drugs’ (Cialis and Viagra).

I concocted an herbal compound that we sell at DHERBS called Jackrabbit to serve as a safer and saner alternative to these harmful pharmaceutical sex enhancing drugs. If you really want to conceive a child or just improve your sex life, start messing around these herbs and herbal concoctions (Jackrabbit, Male Hormonal Formula, Prostate Formula). Your impotence will be gone in a matter of days. You will become a hound dog and a lusty goat, hopefully under the right circumstances (like being in a monogamous relationship or married). You’ll read the Song of Solomon in the Bible and become aroused at all of its sexual innuendos.

After all, God made the herbs for the service of man (Psalms 104:14) and instructed man to be fruitful and to multiply and replenish the earth (Genesis 1:28). Now if God instructed us to be fruitful and to multiply and replenish the earth, and today we cannot do such because we are impotent as men (and sterile or infertile as women), what does this imply? Somewhere along the line we have deviated from God’s path and ordained way of life for us. The proof is in the pudding! Our sexual disorders are preventing us from adhering to God’s commandment. Could our modern day high meat, dairy and starch-filled diets and fast-paced and technological-based lifestyles have something to do with this?

It’s interesting in that after God instructed man and woman to be fruitful and to multiply and replenish the earth in Genesis 1:28, God comes behind this with an ordained diet for man and woman in Genesis 1:29 that is a fruitarian (fruit-based) diet:

“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”

Now if God instructed us to eat fruit that contains seed, how come we are eating seedless fruit today, such as seedless watermelon, seedless grapes, seedless oranges, etc.? Again, we talk and profess God, but we are the most loyal imps of the Devil or Adversary and are too blind and self-righteous to know it, but are perplexed at our modern day pathologies and disorders. I truly understand how the devil came to God walking amongst the sons of God without the sons of God having a clue that the devil was with them:

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.” JOB 1:6

So getting back to our Genesis-based fruit-based diet, the terms “fruitful” and “seed” have to do with sexual reproduction. Does a man not have “seed”? Is not a woman “fruitful”? The term “infertility” derives from the Latin word infertilis, meaning “not fruitful” [in “not” and fertilis “fruitful”]. A woman who is not fruitful is said to be infertile which brings us to the topic of female infertility.

What is infertility?

Infertility (or infertile) is defined as: “The inability to produce offspring. This condition may be present in one or both sex partners and may be temporary and reversible. The cause may be physical, including immature sexual organs, abnormalities of the reproductive system, hormonal imbalance, and dysfunction or anomalies in other organ systems, or may result from psychological or emotional problems. The condition is classified as primary, in which pregnancy has never occurred, and secondary, when there have been one or more pregnancies.” SOURCE: Mosby’s Dictionary, 3rd Edition (1990)

Eat plenty of artichokes and asparagus (steam them). Eat plenty of pomegranates, berries (raspberries, Lycii, vitex or chaste tree, blueberries, Goji, etc.). Eat plenty of sunflower and pumpkin seeds (uterus food). These are your fertility enhancing foods.

Women, do you know how to bless your wombs? Do you know how to prevent the psychic attacks on your womb?

Your womb is a potential internal nursery for a Rosemary’s Baby which means your womb is used to produce a baby for the Devil (Adversary, Matrix). In the 1966 Roman Polanski movie “Rosemary’s Baby”, actress Mia Farrow unsuspectedly and unknowingly carried a baby for the Devil. These murderers, serial killers, drive-by shooters, cut-throats, and natural born killers, where did they come from? Answer: from the womb of a female!
