Dear Friends,

Crystal magic is a type of magic that gets a lot of intention. Not only are crystals powerful (and even nice to look at!) but they can add extra energy to certain spells and rituals when they are used correctly. So why use crystal magic and how can you use it properly?

We like to believe that everything is interconnected. Therefore, when we use different objects such as stones, crystals, incense, herbs, and even candles we do so with the idea in mind that the power that these items contain can work together with us and our own power and energy in order to create a balance or energy that can then be applied and directed.

Some people take the animistic point of view and think that crystals possess a spirit. An idea exists that crystals are a physical appearance of spirits. Even many scientists will agree that quartz crystal has a certain electrical emission and even has a memory. Quartz crystals are used in a lot of spells and rituals.

Crystals have been enthralling us for thousands of years and people from every culture have always thought of them as a very important aspect of their ritual tools. Sparkling crystals have held a curious allure to us that seems to call to our spirits. It was no wonder that people from thousands of years ago thought they were magical-just looking at them brings a bit of wonderment.

There are quite a few crystal deposits in Sedona, Arizona and when I visited there a few years ago there was definitely a strong energy and pull to the area. A lot of people visit Sedona and immediately feel something magical and mystical there. Historically, temples were often constructed upon mineral outcroppings and granite zones.

Directing the energy of crystals can be used to help you meditate, get into a trance, or even see visions if that is what you desire. I also use crystals to help me connect with the spirit world and to open my eyes. Crystals can also be used for healing and they have a potent harmonizing energy with herbs. While herbs offer energy and cures for our physical being, gemstones supply something similar for our spiritual bodies. They assist us in our spiritual growth and help balance us. They are one of the most powerful “props” that can be used in a spell.

I use my crystals in many different spells but I try not to over-use them, too. They need time to regroup and re-vitalize, just like I do sometimes. They make a great addition if you need a little extra boost or clarity but understanding your own crystals and how they work is integral to using them correctly.

What, exactly, do I mean by this?

Even though there is a similarity of energy when it comes to crystals, I have found that each of my crystals has its own distinct personality as well. You will probably learn this about your own crystals over time. There are some, for example, that are better for spiritual guidance and some that I simply use to meditate with. It’s important to look at your crystals not simply as “pretty rocks” but as organisms that hold power.

So why are crystals important in terms of magic? Well, all creatures depend on minerals for life and sustenance. It’s not always obvious how they do this, but take a look at the Appalachian Mountains. At one time, they were as tall as the Himalayans. Now, they’re substantially smaller. Over time they have worn down and turned into rich, fertile soil that contains many minerals. This makes the area great for growing crops and other plants, for animals to thrive in, and even for people to live and worship in. In parts of Kentucky, Native Americans refused to make their permanent home there because the land was so rich and fertile that they preferred to share it with other tribes rather than claiming it for themselves.

Eventually, plants, animals, and even humans break down into their own mineral components themselves so energy can never be lost. It just keeps recycling. If we look at crystals in the same way, we can gain a better understanding of why they are important to us and how we should respect them.

Personally, I try to have respect and appreciation for all living things. Although you can’t feed and water a crystal in the traditional sense, you can respect it and care for it and use it wisely. Some of the energy that crystals have come from our own inner energy and this just makes them all the stronger.

I hope that regardless as to whether you use crystal magic or not, your week is filled with magic of all kinds.

Brightest blessings,

    Once again, you don’t stop amazing me about your knowledge of this art, and specially about the electrical emission and memory about the quartz, this is quite unusual and very good to know that they recognize some power on thoses pretty stones, just like you’ve said it so well.
    I never stop learning in this and I thank you for it and for all many others things you do, but one is, is that I couldn’t thank you enough for being my teacher, dear Rose..

    Brightest Blessings.:)
