Is it Necessary to Identify The Crystal Type?

This blog post is in answer to a great three part question about crystals with more than one prominent type. Specifically, 1. is there generally one type (configuration) through which a crystal prefers to connect? 2. How would it be best to identify this? and 3. Is it even necessary to identify the crystal type to connect? The question reads in full:

I have a lovely crystal which recently chose me that I am trying to identify its type so I know best how to relate and connect with it. It appears to be both an old soul and a several different types in one; it also contains cookeite. My question is two actually; when a crystal is a combination of multiple configurations/ types, is there generally one which it prefers to connect through and how would it be best to identify this? Second, is it necessary to even identify the configuration to best connect with a crystal? Thanks in advance to you and Venus for any assistance and guidance!

These are great questions. Following are the answers in (Venus’ words) when I asked her these questions:

Is there generally one type (configuration) through which a crystal prefers to connect?

The answer, in short, is, not really.

The users’ specific intent and need is the more important topic.

The types or names of the different configurations really just help us to focus our intent and tweak the light (or energy) a bit. Since each crystal has access to The One, and thereby can access all information equally, it really isn’t necessary to identify the crystal type.

When identifying the type does have benefit (to the person working with the crystal) is to help the person focus the intent.

For instance, if a person wants to access information specific to them they might choose to work with a Record Keeper crystal.

Now, every crystal (Record Keeper or not) can help a person access this knowledge through the connection to The One. However, a crystal with Record Keeper markings tweaks the energy a bit (like a filter) and also serves as a focal point for the user. It may boost the belief of the user, knowing they are working with a Record Keeper, so they may feel more confident in the knowledge they are receiving.

How would it be best to identify this (specific crystal type)?

Venus continues:

In crystals with more than one type or configuration, one might choose any one of the different types on which to focus.

Here’s an example:

You may choose to work with a crystal which is Tabular which has a Key and Barnacles, Lineated sides, Record Keepers and an Inner Child Point. Each of these types focuses a different energy. Let’s look at each separately.

image of example crystal tabby, barnacles, keyTabular crystals are good for communication (they look like a tablet).

Keys help unlock answers to questions you might have or help you to gain access to areas which were previously blocked from you.

Barnacle crystals are typically wise and have “old soul” energy.

Lineated Sides may be used to open the crystal to receive more information as you work with it.

Record Keepers can help you access knowledge specific to the user (like accessing the Akashic Records).

Inner Child points help to connect inner to outer, or help to access your inner child or inner self.

Depending on the specific need of the user, any one of these features may be focused on, or all of them, each at a different time. If there is a type that is particularly prominent in this crystal (for instance if the Key is very large or deep), a person might be drawn to work with that feature first.

However, the crystal might be worked with in all of these areas, each taken separately. One type isn’t more important than the other.

Sometimes a specific type on a crystal (the Key for example, or the Record Keeper) may seem to “call to” a person (may seem to be the more important feature). This is actually the crystal broadcasting stronger to a person in that area because that particular type is of issue to the PERSON, not the crystal. Do you see?

So in summary, the most important area to be identified is the user’s current desire or intent.

Is it even necessary to identify the crystal type to connect?

Venus concludes:

No, in truth, it isn’t necessary. As stated before, it can be helpful to the person, to help focus the intent. But to the crystal, it makes no difference.

We don’t see ourselves in separate categories as you do. Meaning we don’t see our parts as separate from one another. Either the different types (categories) in each crystal or as each individual crystal being separate from one another. We see ourselves from the wider perspective, as whole rather than as parts.

That being said, we do see why it is helpful for you to identify the different types in your current dimension with the workings of your consciousness. We do not judge this as better or worse, more or less desirable.

Simply know that we are here to work with you and help raise your consciousness in any way that works best for you. If identifying specific types or categories helps, do so! If you notice a particular type or category to be more prominent, that is usually the crystal recognizing the need in the user and amplifying that aspect.

Wow. Always great information. Thanks, Venus!!

Question and Answer: Working With Crystals Using Positive Intent Without Permission?

I received this question just after answering the last question, and immediately one of my crystal Guides (name: “Cassandra”, who comes through with a heavy Spanish-sounding accent) has stepped in to answer the question. I am honored and blessed!

QUESTION:

I understand what you said about crystal energy being too high to be able to be used by someone with negative intent. But can it be used to help guide someone in positive ways? For example, can I use my crystal to make my teenager be more polite or clean up her room as I ask? Can my crystal help my boss be more respectful of his employees or finally give me the raise I honestly deserve? Would my crystal help me make our politicians behave more responsibly?

ANSWER: (Cassandra speaking)

Great questions and thoughts! Let me answer them separately. Crystal can absolutely be worked with to assist and guide people in positive ways. Crystals’ vibrations are high and love-filled, with best intentions, always. While it would be nice if we were able to cause your children to behave by magic (sparkling laughter here) it is not our way to, how would you say, manipulate others in that way. Don’t get me wrong. Our vibrations are high, and will lift the vibrations in a room, naturally, so in that way, yes, we would help. We might be able to assist you in assisting your teenager, if you worked with us and programmed us to that end. If we know that is your intent (to have well-behaved and happy teenagers) then we would assist you in that way. By raising YOUR vibrations, the vibrations you emit will automatically raise those around you.

As for your boss, again, with free-will in place, we cannot make another do your bidding. However, we might be able to shift your attitude so that the things you desire come to you naturally, due to your change in vibration. While we are able to do these things (create magic, if you will), we simply do not do this, as it is not our way. We are here to assist.

(Laughing sadly) Oh… that we could straighten up your politicians, wouldn’t it be so perfect!! However, again, free will. We can assist the people to raise their vibrations, be filled with love and positive intent, help them to see the value in loving our great mother, Gaia… in this way we will help the politicians to straighten up and stop acting as babies with a toy. But it will be the people who make these changes, with the assistance of the Crystal People. We have great love for you and wish always the best for you. We shall go now and return when there are more questions for us.

Question and Answer: Are There Any Negative Crystals/Gemstones

Crystal Q and A!! If you have a crystal question, post it below and I will do my best to get you an answer! Here’s one I received recently:

QUESTION:

I’ve noticed in my limited research of the stones that have passed through my life over the years that nearly everything has some sort of metaphysical property… healing, protection etc. Based off of color, composition etc. I’ve noticed however that all stones that I’ve come across seem to always have positive qualities. Never anything per say negative, or destructive, that I’ve noticed.

So my question is: are there inherently negative stones that cause negative reactions in people, or are they all positive beings? Can, say, a quartz crystal be programmed to do negative instead of positive? What of radiated quartz which is turned black due to exposure to X-ray radiation? I’m simply curious not doing bad juju on anyone…

ANSWER:

That’s an excellent question!! This is actually something I cover in my book (Understanding the Crystal People). Obviously in the book, the information is pertaining only to quartz crystal, however my guess is it is the same for all stones… And in my view, applies to anything other than human, actually. Animals or plants or even some stones may be harmful or even deadly to us physically but they aren’t harmful out of malice. I think people are the only species that do that (except maybe some aliens, but it could be argued they are “people”… or maybe just following their instincts?) So, certainly there are stones which can be dangerous to us physically (stones which contain cyanide or arsenic for example), but again, they aren’t physically harmful out of malice.

So that would leave the portion of the question whether they can intentionally be programmed for ill-intent. The short answer is no.

To expound on that, the vibration in quartz is too high, and as sentient beings, a person can’t program a crystal or “trick” it into participating with a program with bad intent. The analogy I received from my crystal guide, Venus, is that if you take a lidded box (which is dark inside, in a sense, to “carry the dark within”) into a room blaring with light (room = crystal, dark inside box = evil intent) when you take the lid off the box, it doesn’t darken the room at all. The shadows inside the box are replaced with light and the room is no darker because you opened the lid of the box. The same analogy works with our crystal friends. If one attempts to put “shadow” into the crystal (with negative programming), the light within simply causes the shadow to disappear.

And as for very dark, irradiated crystals (naturally occurring or manipulated by man), they simply have the properties of smoky quartz (grounding, stabilizing etc), but no negative connotations. I can see where one might think a black stone could be perceived as possibly used in a dark way, but the crystal entity simply isn’t going to get on board with that. Since it is a matter of co-creation, it will not work. Not to say that someone might try it and say its working, and even if their dark agenda did work, it would have nothing to do with the crystal and all to do with the sender’s energy on its own… since crystals are sentient beings, not simply automaton tools, it’s not going to happen that the crystal could be “used” or even “tricked” in that way.

It’s not the first time I’ve been asked this question, so hopefully seeing the answer here will be helpful to more people. Excellent!

ADDENDUM: Something else to consider: There are stones which may not be a vibrational match to the person in question, so they may make the person physically uncomfortable (for example, some people and tektite) or which cause a reaction in people which is perceived as negative (headache, lightheadedness, etc), or which are absolutely physically harmful (for example contain toxic or poisonous elements such as malachite dust… as an aside, here is an excellent resource from Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy on toxic stones.) The stones are not harmful due to mal-intent, any more than a rattlesnake or shark is. For example, the snake or shark would also be very dangerous if put in someones lap! I think there are ways around this and exceptions to every rule, however Crystals absolutely cannot be intentionally programmed or manipulated to be used in a harmful way.

If you have questions about this topic or a different question all-together, please post it in the comments section below. I am happy to write a blog post. Just like our teachers used to tell us, chances are, if you have a question, someone else probably has the same question. Talk to you soon!

QUESTIONS FOR THE CRYSTAL PEOPLE: Can crystals be used to guide others without their consent?

BLOG_QUESTIONSI received this question, and immediately one of my crystal Guides, (not Venus), who comes through with a heavy accent has stepped in to answer the question. When I inquired as to why there is an accent associated with her answers, she said “because it is easier for you to determine that the answers are coming from us if we answer with an accent.” However the answers come, I am both honored and blessed! At any rate, here is the question, followed by the answer.

QUESTION:
