CATHEDRAL or LIGHTBRARY CRYSTAL – Raise your vibration or access Akashic Records

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Lightbrary or Cathedral quartz crystals; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy. The two names (they are used interchangeably) will help you to remember what they look like and also what they do. In “Cathedral” you get a visual reference (what they look like) and in “Lightbrary”, a metaphysical (what they do or how to work with them).

CHANNELER or CHANNELING CRYSTAL – To access higher wisdom, guides, other-world beings

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Channeling or Channeler quartz crystal points; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy. They are referred to as either Channeler OR Channeling, both are correct and are used interchangeably. Metaphysical description: Channeler quartz crystals help you access higher wisdom, either in the form of your Higher Self or Spirit Guides, or of Angels. These crystals exude a

BRIDGE or INNER CHILD CRYSTAL – Bridge between worlds or to your innermost Self

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Bridge or Inner Child crystals. Here is the description I give about Bridge/Inner Child crystals in my book Understanding the Crystal People: Physical description: A Bridge or Inner Child is a smaller crystal (or crystals) penetrating and located partially in and partially out of a larger crystal. Both names, Bridge and Inner Child, are used interchangeably. I call them Bridges when the point is fairly large and

BARNACLE CRYSTALS – ‘new souls’ attracted to ‘old soul’ energy

Last time I promised to begin our next discussion with Barnacles. Before I talk about Barnacles specifically, though, let’s talk about how these metaphysical characteristics work. I have been doing a lot of meditating on this, and asked my crystal guide, Venus, for clarity, primarily in how to describe this concept of Metaphysical Descriptions to you. Following is information received from Venus over a period of days, and quoted is where she popped in as

Metaphysical Quartz Crystal Descriptions – An Introduction

The shapes and features of quartz crystals are varied and many. What do I mean by “configuration”? Crystal configurations are the different shapes of quartz crystal, named according to features present such as: Facets (placement, number of edges) such as: Transmitter, Dow, Channeler or Channeling, Isis, Eight Sided Face and Windows; Projections (crystals penetrating one another) such as: Inner Child, Bridge and Manifestation; Over-all shape such as: Elestial or Elestiated, Curved, Empathic and Laser Wand;

A Discussion about Crystal Spheres or “Crystal Balls”

A recent blog post about polished versus natural (unpolished) crystals sparked some questions and a brief discussion about spheres with my friend jack.   Q: Where is it that the energy moves through a sphere that would be cut from the middle of a larger point? Would it still have the original flow? A: Great question! There’s not really a “directional” energy flow in a sphere. The nature of a sphere (physically as well as

Crystals with Water in them or Enhydro Crystals

Here’s another awesome question from my friend Karen, this time, about Enhydro crystals. She asks: Enhydros (sp?) Crystal? Have you come across any of these? Can you share more of what they do? I have learned they balance the Divine Masculine/Feminine. Is this correct? Thanks! Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Enhydro crystals. For those that don’t know, they are crystals with water (fluid) inside them. The only way to know if you have an Enhydro

Other Triangle and Square Shapes on Crystals (Growth Interference and Record Keepers)

Last time we talked about Keys and Imprints. There are other ways that triangles and squares may present on crystals. We’ll discuss those here, namely Growth Interference and Record Keepers. Indentations and markings similar to Imprints and Keys also occur but they fall into a different category. Some of these triangular and square-shaped impressions are caused by what is called Growth Interference. Growth Interference happens when another mineral grows during the development of the crystal and

Keys and Crystal Imprints

YAY!  OK, so we had a question from my friend, Karen (the Feng Shui Lady) Adams. She writes: “Tell me about crystals with “Keys” such as squares and triangles. I have heard about gazing at them in meditation? Anything else you can share would be exciting!” Oh! this is a great question. A Key is created when a crystal pokes into another crystal during its growth. Sometimes Keys have a pointy bottom and sometimes a flat bottom… What

Polished Crystal versus Natural (unpolished) Crystal: What’s the Difference?

I often get questions about polished crystal and how it differs from natural crystal. When I talk about polished crystal I am referring to crystal which has had its sides and or faces cut and polished with a machine, like the picture above.  Natural crystal is crystal which has not had its shape altered and remains the same as it was when it grew in the earth. The crystals above are natural (unpolished) crystals. Sometimes crystal is polished
