WINDOW CRYSTALS – Time Links

This week we’re going to discuss Windows in crystals. A Window crystal is a crystal with an extra diamond-shaped facet. To determine if you have a window, you count the faces. Here is a description of how to do this from my book (Understanding the Crystal People: A Handbook for Lightworkers): Start counting faces by putting your finger on the main face and count until you make your way back around to the face under your

TRIGONIC RECORD KEEPER – Soul Retrieval, Transitions and Knowledge

This week we are going to discuss Trigonic Record Keepers. First, we need to know what they look like. How do they differ physically from what we learned in an earlier Blog Post about traditional Record Keepers? A COMPARISON OF TRADITIONAL RECORD KEEPERS vs TRIGONIC RECORD KEEPERS: A Trigonic Record Keeper (sometimes called Trigon) is an upside-down Record Keeper that you can easily feel and see. Traditional Record Keepers are little triangles which point up,

TRANSMITTER – Double Up on Channeler Energies, Access Higher Wisdom

This week we’re back on track in our alphabetical countdown of the various quartz crystal configurations and metaphysical descriptions. I hope you enjoyed the break we took last week with the guided crystal meditation. If you missed it, you can find it here. I highly recommend taking the time out to try the meditation. It doesn’t take much time and it’s a great way to reconnect with all of your Crystal Friends, those living with you

A Guided Crystal Meditation

So! I hope everyone enjoyed the recent Super-Harvest-Blood-Moon event. Obviously, it wasn’t visible to all due to global location or local weather, but the energies were incredible and, I am sure, shared and felt by all. Watching the moon go dark was awe-inspiring. Seeing the Earth’s shadow creep across the moon was a powerful reminder to me of how we are interconnected, not just floating parts which don’t interact. I am definitely feeling the ramped-up energies

SCEPTER – Give Courage to Take Action

This week we’re going to talk about Scepter crystals. I’ve never dug a Scepter crystal in Arkansas, but I have some that are Tibetan. All the pictures of the Scepter crystals in this blog post are Tibetan. Since I didn’t have any really excellent pictures, I included a drawing (see image, left) I did of a scepter crystal for my upcoming book. So, as you might have guessed, Scepter crystals are crystals which have a scepter

SOUL MATE or TWIN SOUL – Promote Loving Contact and Togetherness

This week we’re going to talk about Soul Mate or Twin Soul crystals. Let me start with the caveat that just as there are differing opinions on the description of a human soul mate/twin soul, there is also a lot of controversy about what constitutes a Soul Mate or Twin Soul crystal. These twinned crystals are sometimes also referred to as Tantric Twins or Twin Flames. My tendency is to keep naming as uncomplicated as possible,

SMOKY QUARTZ – For Grounding and Mood Elevating

This week we’re going to talk about Smoky quartz. As an aside, I grappled with the spelling of “smoky” for years (actually I still have to think about it when I write it). I always wondered, “is it ‘smoky‘ or ‘smokey‘!?” (And how many times can you read and say ‘smoky’ before the word becomes like a non-sense word!?) Just to share what I learned, ‘smoky’ (without the “e”) is an adjective, ‘Smokey’ (with the

TABBY and SHEET and SHARD, OH MY! Crystals with Flat Shapes

Welcome back to our discussion of the different quartz crystal configurations. This week I was planning to just talk about Sheet crystals, but I have decided to add in two other types of flat crystals as well. So we’re going to talk about Sheet, Tabby (or Tabular) and Shard quartz crystals. They are all thin, flat crystals, but they each have a little bit different characteristic which separates them. We’ll start with Tabby or Tabular

SELF HEALED CRYSTALS – Healing with Persistence and Determination

This week we’re going to talk about Self Healed crystals. Self-Healed crystals are crystals that have been broken from the matrix and started to re-seal their broken ends with new growth. How might this happen and what is the matrix? All crystals which aren’t Double Terminated start out on a cluster (the porcupine looking masses of crystals). These clusters grow along veins. When the earth moves and shifts, individual points or sometimes clumps of points

RECORD KEEPER or RECORDER – Messages From the Past/Access Hidden Knowledge

Record Keepers (also called Recorders) are special surface features found on some crystals. They aren’t super rare but they aren’t common, either. I remember when I first started learning about crystals and sorting them for the website, the crystals I had found nearly ALL had Record Keepers on them. Dozens and Dozens. I thought, man, Record Keepers must be a very common thing! So if a crystal had Record Keepers and also any other configuration
