Considering Shungite to be another mineral found on earth would be belittling its properties for which it is known and used by scientists with great admiration. There is no wonder why they love it so much due to the fullerenes (molecules of carbon atoms). It is a non-crystalline mineraloid consisting of more than 98% weight of carbon. The origin of this mineral comes from Russia, Shunga village, in Karelia. Shungite is used in Karelia to purify drinking water and after filtration, it is safe to drink.

In recent years, many doctors, scientists, and of course well-known companies are taking great advantage of this amazing mineral. The reason is that it is now considered a very potent material and relatively cheap for the solution to many complicated environmental issues.

Many people are sensitive to electromagnetic fields (EMF) that come from our phones, modern TVs, gaming consoles, tablets, laptops, kindles, microwaves, Wi-Fi and the list goes on.

EMF sensitivity can feel like but are not limited to:

  • Lack of energy, tiredness after using the appliances
  • Irritated eyes, sensitivity to light or noise
  • Waking up tired and grumpy
  • Becoming forgetful and clumsy

If you have bought Shungite in bulk, it is advisable to wash them under warm water and let them dry. Place them near all of your home appliances and stick to the back of your phones, tablets, laptops, and so on. True Shungite will conduct electricity which is the simplest way to find out if you have got a genuine stone with you.

various crystals

If you are plugged into the world of alternative medicine, you probably are considering crystal healing a run for the money. Crystal healing has been around for quite some time. Since ancient time, men have harnessed the power of these healing stone to align, transform and clear their mind, body and soul energy from the often harmful negative energy to a pure and fulfilling positive energy.

The Egyptians, Sumerians and even the Mayans who regularly adorn themselves with these crystals understood the positive impact of these stones on their mind which in turn keeps their physical body healthy and free from stress.

Even though our modern culture will choose rather forget or deny the healing capabilities of crystals, we cannot, for the most part, erase them totally. There are still many who have witnessed and will continue to believe in the healing powers of crystals. The followership is growing globally and we are seeing a renewed interest in this ancient holistic healing method.

How healing crystals work

Healing crystals work by aligning the various energy centres of the body to promote wellness, happiness and stress-free life.

Energy healers believe the human body is surrounded by a field of energy called chakra. This energy field is very much like a magnetic field which can push or attract other objects. Our thoughts produce vibrations which affect these fields and in turn, the field attracts to us what we are thinking. As such, the energy field helps in the manifestation of our thoughts and can bring to pass whatever we are thinking about; whether good or evil.

Healing crystals have the ability to align this life force and cleanse our chakra of evil or bad energy. This gives them a holistic healing power since they are the only thing apart from our mind which can influence the energy surrounding our body. As such, having a particular crystal on helps to vibrate the energy to a particular frequency giving rise to a manifestation of these thoughts.

This is why healers use different crystals to solve different problems. To effectively harness the healing power of crystals, you’ll need to select the crystal type that matches the frequency of your problem so it can lead to better manifestation.

How to choose a crystal

Choosing a crystal depends entirely on what you want and your connections with the healing crystal. Crystal experts often say the crystals choose you and not the other way around. As such, it is often recommended that you move around the crystal chop and look around until you can feel an almost physical connection with a particular healing crystal.

The connection can come in the form of a physical vibration, a tingling sensation or just a knowing feeling when you come in contact with your healing crystal in the crystal shop. If you feel drawn to a particular feeling or fall in love with a crystal; that’s often a sign that the crystal has chosen you.

It’ll also help to identify your particular problem and find a stone whose healing vibrations matches your problem. Below we have discussed some of the most popular healing crystals and what they stand for; you can use that as a guide for finding your healing crystal.

When it comes to healing with crystals, your intentions matter a lot because crystals work by sending your thoughts which most often are your intentions into the soul of the universe to bring such intentions into physical manifestations. As such, it important for you to be specific about what you want, when you want it and how you want.

Different types of crystals and what they do

White (crystal) quartz

White crystals are some of the most popular crystals used by energy healers in different parts of the world. The white crystal quartz has a pure and powerful energy source. It is used mainly to stimulate the brain to increase creativity and boosts the immune system. It has other important applications such as increased perception and deeper relaxation. Go for a white crystal if you are looking for clarity, healing and cleansing.

Citrine comes with a warm colour which signifies the crystal’s optimistic and warm energy. It is great for warding off negative energy or people and it doesn’t need regular cleansing as most healing crystals.

What to do after getting your crystal

After getting your crystal, one of the very first thing you might want to do is to cleanse the crystals. Crystals can easily get infected with negative energy, as such, cleansing them before using them is highly advisable.

Cleansing a crystal is very easy. Simply wash the crystal under a running natural source of water or a tap. Most times, you’ll need the water to be pure, clean and cold. Do not use hot or warm water.

After washing it, you can leave it to dry under the morning sun.

After cleansing your crystal, you’ll need to ‘program’ it with your intention. This involves giving the crystal a purpose by telling it your intention.

Hold the crystal in front of you with your eyes close, either aloud or in your head, tell the crystal your intention and what you want it to do for you. Acknowledge this with thanksgiving to the universe.

How to use your healing crystal

The more you touch your healing crystals, the more you can get out of them. So it makes perfect sense to always keep the crystal in contact with your body.

One of the best ways to do this is to wear them. You can make a necklace out of your crystal, a hand band, earrings or even ring.

Crystal Information Guide

sodalite buddha

The following sections: ‘What are crystals?’, ‘Cleansing crystals’, ‘Programming crystals’, ‘Crystal Beauty’, ‘Crystals and the Chakras’, and ‘What is magic?’, were kindly written for us by Elaine Browne (Reiki Level II qualified practitioner).

What are Crystals?

For thousands of years, crystals have been used for protection and adornment. Crystals are born deep within the womb of Mother Earth – defined as ‘a substance solidified in a definitive geometric form’.

Any stone with a crystalline structure can be referred to as a crystal. This geometric form results from the way in which crystals were created millions of years ago.

Superheated gases and mineral solutions forced their way up and out of the Earth’s molten interior towards the surface. In time, as they cooled, atoms formed orderly patterns. Three-Dimensional lattices repeating throughout are what hold the crystal’s internal structure stable.

Crystals can be sectioned into families or groups sharing basic qualities even though they may appear different.

Their appearance is affected by the pressures and temperatures at which they were formed.

Cleansing Crystals

Due to crystals absorbing so much energy from their surroundings it is highly important to cleanse them regularly. Ideally, those used for decorative purposes should be cleansed monthly and those used in healing frequently should be cleansed daily of after each use; otherwise, any negative energies/vibrations picked up by it will be easily passed on.

Crystals will absorb any negativity from people or its placing so that positivity can be replaced.

Easy ways to purify…

Natural forces – Plants, Sun, Moon, water, etc. are very effective in ridding of stale energies.

Smudging – Hold the crystal in smoke from a Sage smudge stick – use a feather to fan smoke across the crystal.

Visualization – Use your mind to picture a pure white light coming down and surrounding the crystal. Transmit the energies until the crystal shines out once more.

Water – Immerse in water for an hour or two. NB. Please remember that this method is not suitable for soft or friable stones.

Quartz Cluster – Stand the crystal on a large quartz cluster for approximately twelve hours and leave in moon or sunlight. Stones have a natural affinity to benefit from this.

Programming Crystals

Crystals work best when programmed for a specific desire which harnesses your intent.

In order to make a crystal your own, it is important to first program it. This ensures that whatever your intention for it will come about.

1. Always remember to dedicate the energies for the highest good.

2. Dedicate immediately after cleansing.

3. Dedication is simple but enormously effective as it positively focuses on any intention.

How to program a crystal…

1. Hold the crystal in your hands and picture a pure light around it.

2. Reinforce that the crystal will only be used for the highest good in love, light and healing; then move directly on to programming.

3. It is important to focus while programming and remember that imprecise wording confuses crystals whilst meticulous wording directs precisely.

Crystal Beauty

The shape of a crystal determines how it transmits energy and what impact that energy has on its surroundings. Here is a brief guide to what to look for depending on its intended use…

Geodes – Cave like in appearance. These both diffuse and contain energy.

Square Crystals – Consolidate energy.

Pyramid Shape – Tightly focus energy through the apex.

Egg Shaped – Are brilliant for use on the body and rebalancing blockages – can be a tool in alternative therapies.

Spheres – These emit energy in all directions equally. They can be used to transport energy from other times or places.

Clusters – Radiate out their intense energy which surrounds them. They are very cleansing!

Double Terminated (points both ends) – Used for balance as they give and absorb at the same time.

Long Pointed Crystals – Focuses in a straight line depending on which way it is pointing. Draws off or injects energy. They are useful in healing.

Crystals and the Chakras

Chakras are energy points which link the physical body with electromagnetic bodies which surround it.

When balancing and healing the Chakra, a colour appropriate stone is placed where comfortable (back or front of the body) on the Chakra (and optionally above the head or below the feet) to perform certain tasks.

Specific colours aid specific tasks and can choose to either energise or sedate a Chakra depending on need.

The colour of the stone/crystal used has the following effects…

Oranges and Reds – Stimulate.

Blues and Greens – Calm.

Violet – Elevates.

The seven Chakra points and their corresponding colours are as follows (note that alternative colours are often used for Chakra points and different sources may state them differently)…

1. Crown – Violet

2. Third Eye – Indigo

3. Throat – Blue

4. Heart – Green

5. Solar Plexus – Yellow

6. Sacral – Orange

7. Base/Root – Red

As an optional extra, stones may also be placed at The Higher Crown (above the head) and on the Earth (below the feet).

What is Magic?

Magic can so easily be incorporated into everyday life to aid you through a whole host of tough challenges and obstacles. Magic and crystals go way back. All elements have a magical force about them…

In Fire – We see movements inflame and hear crackles with reactions similar to those of electricity holding a positive charge. This is known as ‘Electrical Fluid’, relating directly to the expansion qualities of fire.

In Water – Magnetic qualities are shown in river currents and tide rolls at moonrise. This force is ‘Magnetic Fluid’, holding a negative charge linking to shrinking and contracting qualities.

In Air – This Element has a good relationship with Fire (by nourishing and strengthening it) and Water (by changing its density: – transforming it to fog, snow, rain, etc.) Air provides a grounding force for when Fire and Water mix!!!

In Earth – This Element contains Fire, Water and Air in their most solid forms; together forming rocks, lava, etc. and makes our soils rich moist, warm and dusty. By actively involving these other three Elements, this is where Earth takes its life source from which is equivalent to ‘Electromagnetic Fluid’.
