Maximising Your Drinking Water With Crystal Grids

Ever wondered if your drinking water was performing at its utmost potential? Well there is something that you can do in order to help maximise its potential so that you are getting the most benefit out of your water, using the positive energy of crystals and positive intention.

The late Dr. Emoto understood the effects of positive and negative energy on water and devoted his life’s work to it. You can read more about Dr. Emoto here. It really goes without saying that positive energy leads to positive things and negative energy leads to negative things, so we would want to charge our lives with lots of positive energy. One way of doing this is by charging our drinking water with positive energy with the assistance of crystals.

If you are familiar with Dr. Emoto’s work you will be aware of the ways in which he used words, pieces of music etc. to affect the crystal formations in water (check out this short clip on youtube). After learning about Dr. Emoto’s work in my studies I decided to give this a try for myself.

The tap water where I live is not very pleasant to drink, you can really taste the chlorine and fluoride. I was blown away that I was able to alter the taste of our tap water by doing this very simple experiment. I took a piece of post-it note and wrote the word “HAPPY” on it and drew some love hearts. I put some tap water into a glass and placed the glass on top of the post-it note on my kitchen bench. I then intuitively selected some crystals to make a crystal grid around the water. You can use whatever crystals you think/intuitively feel are appropriate for your particular purpose.

Sorry about the quality of the picture, it’s hard to take a good picture at night in our house. I will do a blog in the future on crystal gridding but basically for this one I chose Lepidolite which helps to balance moods and placed it in a clear quartz crystal points grid. I left this undisturbed on the bench overnight. In the morning I drank the water and was pleasantly surprised that the water no longer had its foul taste, in fact it was very refreshing! I felt upbeat all day.

I felt it was such a great success that the next time I found myself in a fibromyalgia flare I tried charging water with healing qualities. Using the same method as above I set up this grid below with the word “HEALTH” written on the post-it note. I chose Rose Quartz, Fluorite, and Citrine to assist with my fibromyalgia and placed them in a grid with clear crystal points.

Again I was amazed with the change in taste and the uplifting feeling I got from consuming this water that doesn’t come with drinking the water directly from the tap. Now imagine instead of a drinking glass, using a pitcher or carafe or other larger drinking vessel that you could get several glasses out of during the day, and being able to drink this incredible water throughout the day. You could use any positive word, for example: LOVE, GRATITUTE, JOY, PEACE, TRANQUILITY, ABUNDANCE etc. whatever suits your purpose, and select the associated crystals to help charge the water.

Love and Light to ALL!

Atlantisite- The Info, The Beauty, The Uses

cropped-atlantisitecrystal.jpg

Atlantisite is one of my current favs. Aside from its absolute beauty, it has some great uses. Its gorgeous colouring comes from inclusions of Stichtite (the purple bits) in Serpentine (the green bits). It’s a fairly recent discovery and is found exclusively in Tasmania, Australia (and is also known as Tasmanite).

Containing both Stichtite and Serpentine means Atlantisite has the combined properties of both those crystals as well as its own unique properties. When Atlantisite is used in healing it can call in the healing energies of the ancient civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria… powerful energies, indeed! It’s a great stone for accessing past life knowledge from the days of Atlantis during meditation. If you have a strong connection with Atlantis you may want to try some meditation time with Atlantisite and see what comes up for you.

Atlantisite is a stone of balance and calm, it’s great for setting boundaries within relationships, and also promotes conflict resolution. If you’re a person who rarely thinks before you speak, you may benefit from wearing or carrying a piece of Atlantisite. It is also a great stone to have in living/family areas of the home, or close to the entry door if you live alone as it promotes a welcoming environment.

Atlantisite may be beneficial in assisting with hypoglycaemia in diabetics, is meant to also be beneficial for the heart and lungs, aid in stomach and kidney complaints, and ladies it’s meant to also assist with easing menstrual cramps (I haven’t tried it though as, thank the goddess! cramping isn’t much of an issue for me these days).

I find I can’t stop staring at this stone, it contains my two favourite colours but I believe I find it alluring for other reasons that I cannot fully explain with words. I find I use it in every crystal healing that I perform as it can be beneficial for so many people in so many ways… probably in ways we are yet to understand, as I mentioned above, it is a relatively new discovery and there doesn’t appear to be a great amount of information out there on it, so I believe down the track more and more properties will be discovered and discussed. I’m often drawn to placing this stone on the heart chakra, which makes sense given it is meant to be beneficial for heart and lungs, and is calming and balancing. I wouldn’t mind betting you’d never be sorry adding this one to your gem collection.

A Brief Overview On Choosing and Using Crystals

Choosing & Cleansing Your Crystal

A good way to choose the right crystal for you and your current purpose is to stand in front of a selection of crystals, close your eyes, think of your purpose, then ask for the right crystal to show itself to you. When you open your eyes you will be drawn to the appropriate crystal, this might be the first one to catch your eye or it may jump out in another way. Once you find it, place it in your hand and see if it’s energy feels right to you. If you are sensitive to crystal energy you may feel it vibrating. You may also employ the use of a pendulum to dowse for the right crystal.

Once you have found and purchased your crystal it will need to be cleansed and dedicated or programmed. Crystals can be cleansed in several ways. One popular way of cleansing crystals is to place them under the light of a full moon. Crystals can also be cleansed by burying them in the earth, this can be done in an indoor pot plant if you prefer, and dug up after a few days. Some, but not all crystals can be cleansed in salt water. Research your crystal first as some break done easily and should be kept out of water. A couple of crystals are self cleansing, and some can be cleansed by being placed on an amethyst cluster. Cleanse your crystals by the method that feels right to you. Cleansing a crystal rids it of other energies that may be present on the crystal from being handled by other people. Cleanse it as often as required so that your crystal will always perform at its optimal potential.

Dedicating or programming a crystal can be as simple as holding your crystal in your hands and meditating on it, focussing your energy into, and filling it with your intent. You may be doing this as part of a spell depending on the purpose and your intent for the crystal.

How Crystals Are Used

Crystals formed as the earth formed and they continue to change as the earth changes. Crystals absorb and transmit energy. Special care should always be taken in selecting a crystal and also in cleansing it and dedicating it.

Different crystals can be used for different purposes. Once you have decided on your purpose, selected your crystal, cleansed and dedicated it, it is time to think about how you are going to use it. How you use it will depend on your purpose. Some uses for crystals are listed below:

  • Healing
  • Scrying
  • Divination
  • Protection
  • Gem Elixirs
  • Decoration

Healing: Crystals work by balancing through vibrations. In healing, a crystal healer may opt to use a crystal wand to direct these vibrations. They may also place certain crystals at certain points on the body such as in chakra balancing. Healing crystals may also be worn or carried.

Scrying: Even if you have never heard the term scrying before, you’ve certainly seen images of it, of Gypsies and Witches poised over a crystal ball. Crystal balls can be useful for this purpose, but the use of polished onyx discs or plates/bowls also work well as the reflective surface can be stared at with unfocused eyes to bring about signs, symbols, visions and messages from the higher self.

Divination: Divination can take may forms. A lot of sets of runes these days are made from crystals. A selection of crystals can also be placed in a bag and provide an answer when selected at random from the bag when a question has been asked. The majority of pendulums are made from crystals. When selecting and using a pendulum you would select a crystal that resonates with you.

Protection: When crystals are used for protection, depending on the specific need, they can be worn, buried, carried (such as in mojo bags), or placed at specific points around the home.

Gem Elixirs: Some, but not all (as some crystals can be toxic), can be placed in a clear glass bottle with spring water to charge the water and create gem water or gem essence. This water then can be drunk or spritzed around the home.

Decoration: Many crystals are used and worn purely for decoration, though I would urge anyone doing this to research the crystals they are using as some (such as hematite) shouldn’t be worn for lengthy periods.
