Has anybody noticed our small crystal additions to the spa? If you haven't they are well worth an admire! Apart from being a beautiful accompaniment to our products and services as ever there is method behind our actions. All we do in our spa is to encourage peace, tranquility and health to our clients lives. Wether it be the health of your skin, your body or your soul, hence our latest addition of crystals.
For those of you unaware the repeating chemical structure of crystals is said to invest them with a kind of memory. This means that crystals have the power to hold energies. You may hold a quartz crystal with the intention of filling it with your love. This is what is meant by programming a crystal. You do not need any wires or a special connection with God - all you need is intention and focus. The crystal will remember your love, which will then permeate any environment in which the crystal is placed. Crystals can remember negative as well as positive energies and so will sometimes need to be cleansed. For instance, an amethyst will actually help to cleanse a room of negative energies (eg. anger) but this means that the amethyst, which will retain an element of that negative energy, will itself occasionally require cleansing.
You do not need to know the exact properties of every stone in order to buy one, although this may help. It is more important to be receptive and allow yourself to be drawn to a stone that will have meaning for you. If you are in a shop simply stand in front of a group of crystals, close your eyes and relax, and when you open them choose the one you feel most drawn to.
However, different crystals have different energies and properties, and between them can affect mental, physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of ourselves. Simply holding the right crystal at the right time can bring about a change in our attitude and well-being. You don't necessarily need to look up the meaning each time you do this. Over time you may acquire a number of crystals - just take hold of the one you feel drawn to.
For those who do feel like a bit of initial guidance I found this great chart:
For me the love of crystals is very recent, anything to encourage tranquility and calm in an otherwise hectic life is worth a try. Let face they are not hard to look at, so experiment - put them around the house, whats the harm right?!
