crystal meanings

 

Do you find that your usual crystal meanings and usual go-to correspondences are dependable?

For example, has your go-to rose quartz or amethyst been as reliable as of late? I’m not necessarily asking if they’re “weaker,” but are they not working for you in the way that you’ve come to rely on?

Or maybe it’s that they’re working but they’re just “different”.

I’m asking because in all the years I’ve been working with and researching crystals, this is the first time I’ve noticed such a huge shift and many others (students, graduates and so many in our Crystal Family) have brought this to my attention too. 

In a recent poll I did; 82% said this is the case for them. Whoa! That’s a lot.

Crystals are millions of years old, some are even billions of years old. That’s just a drop in the bucket, in the grand scheme of a crystal’s life cycle. Right? So, perhaps this shift in energy many of us are experiencing is just part of a natural cycle. It could also be a change in certain crystals’ vibrational frequencies. I’ll get into the “why” of that in just a bit here. 
Crystal Meanings – Influenced By Energetic Shifts?
Citrine (The Baked Variety)

I’ve noticed lately that the baked variety of Citrine seems to have diminished with respect to its power. Now, the baked variety of citrine is the most widely available. It has more of that orange tint to it. You’d be hard-pressed to find a large geode that’s real-deal citrine.

Me? I prefer to stay away from man-made and man-altered as much as possible, Babe.

Congo and Brazil citrine, now here’s a different animal! Both completely natural and I love ’em. With these types ts of citrine, I’ve actually found their power to be amp’ed up. Brazil citrine is an excellent crystal to pick up, less expensive than Congo citrine, however, harder to identify it from the fake stuff for some. 

Rose Quartz

Now, this is an interesting one. I don’t personally find this to be true for myself, but many of our Crystal Family Members are saying that Rose Quartz is no longer helping with matters of the heart. Which, as you know, is something it’s widely believed to influence. Again, not my personal experience with this crystal at the mo’ but it’s clearly happening to others. So, noted!

Veracruz Amethyst

Veracruz Amethyst is traditionally a go-to for calming the mind; an excellent stone to work with when looking for assistance with meditation. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. Is this true for you? This might not be true for everybody across the board, just something that I’ve noticed.

Selenite

 

The way I use Selenite has changed as well. I’ve found that as of late, I enjoy meditating with selenite. Which is very odd because I used to use Veracruz amethyst to do that.

Reason is: selenite’s usual mega-impact higher frequency energy has seemed to have lowered its amplitude and calmed down quite a bit. I feel like this is a perfect example of how a crystal isn’t necessarily weaker but instead working extremely well in another capacity.

Moldavite

Moldavite is a crystal that’s traditionally considered to be super-high energy. However, lately, I and many others have found it to be lacking in this quality. Which I’m sure you would agree is quite strange for moldavite.
Other Crystals Experiencing a Possible Energy Shift

  • K2 Granite – aka K2 “jasper” has a gray and white modeled background with the beautiful blue azurite spots in it. Oddly enough it seems to have started to darken, which could indicate that there’s an intense energy exchange happening with it.
  • Herkimer Diamond – yet another one that seems to be suddenly lacking in regards to its energy; lackluster, dampened
  • Smokey Quartz – a crystal that used to be known for a gentler de-toxing energy. Today a lot of people are referring to it as their go-to crystal for lively energy and high focus; a new popular fav too, whereas in the past it was not as popular.

Cosmic Shifts
There’ve been some mega-energy shifts impacting not just Earth but our entire Solar System. I’m sure you’ve heard plenty of people bring up the topic of climate change. However, climate change is not specific to Earth, ya know. It’s happening on a number of other planets as well. The energy changing our Solar System is obviously impacting (evolving) the energetics of our planet, Mama Earth. Which means that Earth’s crystal beds are being impacted as well.

What could be causing all these changes?

Well, scientists have recently discovered that gamma-ray levels reaching our planet, have increased tremendously.  These bursts of cosmic rays come from massive supernovae, quasars, all sorts of cosmic sources we’re surrounded by in space. 
3 Reasons Why our Exposure to Cosmic Rays is on the Rise

  • We’re in the Modern Grand Solar Minimum
  • Meaning our Sun is in a state relative minimal activity (few sunspots, prominences, flares, etc). When our Sun is in a state of high activity it creates a very strong protective magnetic field.

    2. Earth’s magnetic poles are shifting

    Earth’s poles influence Earth’s magnetic field. So, when the poles start to shift, our highly protective magnetic shield becomes weaker.

    3. Galactic Void 

    Our solar system isn’t sitting still just floating in space.

    Then, the Milky Way, as a whole, is spinning around the black hole at the center of the galaxy. Our Sun, too, travels in a spiral path through the Milky Way, bringing all of the planets that orbit it along for the ride. I LOVE how this video helps us visualize our Solar System’s vortex-voyage through the Milky Way galaxy:

    SUPER-COOL! Right?

    As we vortex through the galaxy we’re now entering a new zone, what we refer to as the “Local Bubble”; a new area of the Milky Way where it’s a sort of void; there’s less cosmic gas and dust in this “bubble” that would normally act as an additional protective shield from those outside cosmic rays.

    Cosmic Energy Shifting and How it Affects Us + Crystals
    Can cosmic rays impact DNA? Yes. And it’s happened multiple times in the past. 

    But, these rays can impact more than just DNA; they can spark volcanoes, earthquakes, and other tectonic activity.
    Here’s the important bit that directly impacts the crystals: scientists believe the reason cosmic rays impact tectonic activity is that cosmic ray particles thin out the silica-rich magma layer.
    As the temperature increases, the energy also increases. Meaning the silica-rich magma layer becomes thinner. So, there’s been a change in the energy present at an atomic and molecular level!

    So, basically, the shift we’re all feeling, the crystals are feeling as well.

    The word “silica” refers to silicon dioxide (SiO2), which is what quartz is made of. (Amethyst is just silicon dioxide with the additional inclusion of iron.) Also, I should mention that silicates are minerals that have silica in it. Meaning it’s not just silicon dioxide; it could be any mineral that has silica in it like black tourmaline. Silicates make up many of our crystals and scientists are giving us the data that the cosmic rays are directly impacting, thinning out the silica-rich magma and the silicates… all pointing to the possibility of the silicates being the crystals most affected by all of this.
    Light = Information
    I feel these cosmic rays (light angles or “Angels” of Light) carry within their light-encoded frequencies, information; such as new programs and transformative overtones presenting themselves as DNA upgrades and crystal atomic remodeling. Meaning, some crystals will be downloading amazing intel!

    Cosmic rays UPGRADE and change all matter, including crystals AND our DNA.

    Also, let me address the last part of that statement regarding DNA: I’m sure some people might be a bit concerned by the thought of a change in our DNA. I don’t feel this is necessarily damaging to our DNA… or our crystals.

    High-frequency cosmic rays are completely different from other man-made forms of high-frequency radiation that can damage our DNA. 

    What I’m sayin’ is there’s a BIG DIFFERENCE between man-created and Source-created high-frequency rays. So, you won’t find most scientists backing up that statement but this comes from a deep inner knowing:  
    Cosmic rays are Source-created, and therefore flawless, organized information.
    If Our Crystals Change…
    The final point I want to leave you with is this…

    If our crystals are changing we may need to re-learn how to interact with them moving forward; spend some time getting to know them all over again. (And I very much look forward to that experience.)

    That’s really all it comes down to, and that’s exactly why I don’t teach my students to memorize crystal meanings or correspondences in my Certified Crystal Healer Course.

    I’d love to know, have you noticed that some of the crystals you work with have had an energetic shift, seem different, more powerful or simply no longer work for you? Let me know in the comments down below! The more input we get from each other, the more we can collectively learn and grow.

    Feelin’ “Yuck & Stuck”? Need to Ground?

    Feelin’ tired, floaty, dizzy, spaced out, uncoordinated, lethargic? Feel there’s an energy shift going on?

    So many of you have been telling me about these symptoms that I just had to write this post. There are things we can do, Sweet Pea!

    But 1st…the boring disclaimer… (Crystal healing & therapy should be used with the understanding that it is part of a holistic treatment plan. It’s not meant to take the place of standard medical or psychological treatment, but to accompany & work alongside. The information contained herein is metaphysical in nature & does not claim to heal or cure.) OK, got that outta the way. Besides, you have the power within you to cure yourself of ANYTHING! And we can use crystals as a tool, guide & support. 🙂

    So, in doing my science-y yet esoteric research & in teaching many Crystalline Cohorts all around our beloved planet, I think I’ve stumbled on to something pretty profound here, My Sweets! Energy shifts ABOUND! There are many reasons why we’re feeling “yuck & stuck”.
    Just a Wee Bit O’ Science & Possible Reasons for the Energy Shift

  • Once every 26,000 years our Mother Earth’s wobbles on her axis. Some say when this happens we get an influx of energy from the central galactic bulge. Jury’s still out on that one as I continue to look for sound evidence (I do  have some but need more for my liking).
  • Then we have some evidence that this wobble & extra pounding of energy may be due to a possible dwarf star twin that our Sun has out there!!
  • In 2010, astronomers confirmed that 2 huge bubbles that emit gamma rays (the most energetic forms of light [or information] that we know of!!) have been discovered ballooning from the center of the Milky Way galaxy. And you might think that was a long time ago. A few years in space isn’t nearly enough time to dissipate such an event. Those babies will be there a while!:
  • [caption id="attachment_2830" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Artist depiction of our Milky Way Galaxy, copyright NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center taken with the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope[/caption]

    Astrophysicist David Spergel, stated, “what we see here are these enormous structures … [that] suggest the presence of an enormous energetic event in the center of our galaxy.” OK, so does this add yet another layer to that influx of energy we’re receiving right now? I assume, yes.

    4. In addition to all of this, I also think the “yuck & stuck” may be due to all the huge Coronal Mass Ejections we’ve been getting from the Sun recently.  Massive energy there!! CME’s are ejections of solar wind with charged atoms & plasma from our Sun. Amazing stuffs to a geek like myself! These effect us & the entire Solar System in all sorts of ways. Check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronal_mass_ejection Here’s some more info on CME’s you may appreciate: http://www.naturalnews.com/032045_solar_flares_Earth.html Every 11 years we cycle into a maximum of this CME activity, we’re heading into a max. now. That means more flares will be coming our way, Crystal Hotties. But we’ve done all this before, nothing we can’t handle. You can learn more about the recent activity here:

    Could the enormous & more numerous CME’s be happening due to the 26,000 cycle or the gamma ray balloons? Or is our Sun simply excited to see its twin again? Maybe. I can’t say, but I think there’s a connection here somewhere. All of these are possibilities.

    Yeah, this is getting a little geeky. I have a tendency to do that. 😛 No apologies. I fully embrace my GEEKI-NESS!

    All of these events are “radiation events” (light, information). So, any of this may be the reason why we have long periods of time where species remain largely unchanged & then BAM! Mass extinctions as well as many new species come on the scene. Energetic shifting of DNA? Scientists do feel this is due to rapid cosmic radiation events….which may be the reason for our “Yuck & Stuck”.

    BTW, I always teach that energy is neutral. So this energy influx is not bad or good. It has no intentions whatsoever. Its how WE perceive energy that causes it to  manifest certain realities for us. So we if we choose to, we can harness this extra energy burst & use it to our benefit…if we so choose. You do have that power.
    Mother Earth:: Giant Crystal Battery
    Our Mama Earth battery charges up with the radiation from the Sun & lightning happening all around our planet all the time. She also holds a nice grounding iron crystal(s) within her core. Pretty cool, huh?

    Now, think of your body, its mostly water + minerals = excellent conductor of electricity (electrons)!! You’re actually a human battery yourself.

    The surface of our planet is covered in free electrons, which are very attracted to us (water + minerals)..if we allow them to be. Problem is, we’re usually well insulated from these free electrons with our rubber soled shoes & carpeted or tiled floors so there’s very little if any direct contact happening & we’re depriving ourselves from Mother Earth’s balancing restorative energies.

    Ancient civilizations were (are) very aware of all of this & knew to monitor the cycles & to stay closely connected to the planet. Being closely in-tune allows us to regulate many bodily functions & feel plugged in. GROUNDED…dissipating any excess energy to the ground.

    Our body’s various vibration frequency can move our body out of our dominant oscillary rate very easily when we experience stress, which we are doing constantly, especially since we are not regularly connecting with Mother Earth to re-balance. Vibrational healing (like crystal healing) oscillates & entrains our  body back to its dominant osciallry rate & helps it to entrain with a more beneficial frequency. You can also go to specific crystals to entrain more grounding.

    Your body recognizes what it needs & if you offer it the tools, your body will heal itself. You’ll get out of “yuck & stuc k”.
    Crystal & Other Recommendations
    I highly recommend keeping grounded & using crystals to do that:

    • Black tourmaline is my go to stone for this. Hematite is also great! In fact, I have what I call My Sacred Grounding Trio: black tourmaline, smokey quartz & hematite!
    • Do lots of Earthing (check out that book on Amazon!) Earthing is absolutely amazing! Get barefoot & go outside!!! The Ultimate in Grounding. Your feet are meant to connect with Mother Earth! That’s why animals are so well grounded & in-tune. They’re always barefoot!
    • Working on your root chakra. Many of us have an unbalanced root that needs attention.
    • Blizzard stone is also great for balancing energies & grounding.
    • Unplug & try to get away from electronic EMF’s

    Dr. Brian Clement is the medical director of the Hippocrates Health Institute here in West Palm Beach, FL. He agrees that grounding may help people who are hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields. Dr. Clement also states (like I always do!) that electronic EMF is a problem for us.
    Quoted from Dr. Mercola’s site: “[W]e have about four people a year come in here that we call “universal conductors,” he says. “That’s the medical term for it. Dr. Ray, down in Texas, gave it that term. These people are so hypersensitive that they have literally taken the sheathing off their nerves. It’s like having a wire that doesn’t have a covering on it, and you touch it with a pin. Every time they feel the frequency that you and I do not feel, it hits directly to the nerve and creates this biological reaction, this bio-frequency.”
    Dr. Clement uses a form of nutritional grounding. There are many ways to ground. So explore & do some research on your own.

    O-M-G! I could keep writing about this forever…but alas, all my extra energy & writing is going into an online class I’ll be teaching on this eventually.

    People need to know. We’re ll OK, we’re not going nuts & there are ways to make it through, feel better & come out the other side better for it!!

    Now it’s your turn—what’s one successful way you’ve found to get through the “yuck & stuck”?

    Grounded Crystal Blessings!! ((HUGS))
