A Healing Crystal Collection - Awakening Alchemy

As we have seen over the last couple of weeks, crystals, in all their many and varied hues can have a beneficial impact on many areas of our lives. Traditionally, crystals have primarily been seen as promoting our physical and mental health, through their amazing vibrational abilities that can free up the energy flows within our bodies.

It can certainly be argued that all crystals are, in fact, healing crystals. If we take a holistic approach to our overall wellbeing, crystals that help bring us peace, abundance, wealth, are all contributing to our wants and desires and therefore, ultimately, our wellbeing. That having been said there are some crystals that are renowned for their healing properties and those are the ones I want to focus on in this blog.

How Do Healing Crystals Work?

Crsytal Collection - Awakening Alchemy The basic theory behind healing crystals is the idea that they harness the life-giving elements of both the Earth, in particular, and the Universe in general. The crystals harness the energy and vibrations of the sun, the moon, the oceans, and all living things. This energy is passed on to us through contact with the crystals. As discussed in previous articles there has to be this willingness to connect, this requires an open mind, on our part to receive the true benefits of the crystals. There is limited scientific analysis of the curative properties of crystals, but the anecdotal evidence is wide-spread and substantial. Our forebears used crystals as indeed they used natural herbs and plants to assist them in curing disease and promoting health. Most of these ancient remedies have since been proven through modern medicine, to be valid and viable healthy alternatives. Remember, almost all of our modern pills and prescriptions, although often mass-produced synthetically, originally came from the plants and animals in our world. Given that, would it not be presumptuous of us to assume the ancients were right about herbs and plants, but wrong about crystals? I think so. We need to approach crystals with the same holistic approach we used to determine the efficacy of herbal and plant remedies – with an open mind and a willing heart.

At the bottom of this post, there are some links to some beautiful free Soundcloud tracks called Crystal Keys – where my Irish friend Lia Scallion captures the vibration of crystals in her sacred healing songs: my favorites are Emerald and Pearl – which are yours?

There is certainly some scientific evidence that crystals are linked to our thoughts and our beliefs. IBM Scientist Marcel Vogel, noted, while watching crystals grow under a microscope that their shape took the form of whatever he was thinking about. He also performed some tests on the metaphysical properties of quartz crystal and showed that rocks can indeed store thoughts, in much the same way that music can be stored on tapes, using magnetic energy. Arguably the greatest scientist the world has ever seen, Albert Einstein stated that everything in life is vibration and just like sound waves, your thoughts match the vibrations of everything that manifests in your life. Therefore, if you think crystals have healing potential, the positive vibrations of the stones will magnify that thought. Remember our discussion in a previous article about the “placebo effect”.

As discussed previously, all crystals can be categorized as “healing” crystals simply because of our beliefs that they all promote overall health and wellbeing, in a holistic way. Although I’ve only summarized ten crystals here, there are many more examples that you may want to research on your own. Some other crystals that are said to have “healing” qualities, include: turquoise, moonstone, citrine, amazonite, desert rose, raw emerald, hematite, and many, many more.

Crystals Give Prosperity - Awaskening Alchemy

CRYSTAL MUSES

In our previous blog, I introduced you to the fascinating world of Crystals, their benefits and how they can be used to assist us in our daily lives. I guess many people will acknowledge that they understand Crystals have been used for healing purposes over the centuries, but there are some uses of crystals that you may be unaware of. Crystals can be used to help us achieve the wealth and prosperity that so many of us desire.Collection of Crystals - Awakening Alchemy

Not exactly what your Financial Advisor might recommend, rather a magical mixture of sound financial advice and how to become energetically attuned to wealth.

DOWNLOAD: 3 Proven Ways to Pull More Prosperity to You in 30 Days.

What I will do in this blog is highlight some of the many crystals that can also assist you in this quest, and how they provide the desired energetic layer of support. Crystals work primarily to assist us with our emotional needs, our “state of mind” if you like. What we know, from many sources, is that it is our “state of mind” (our thoughts and beliefs) that attracts the people and circumstances around us, into our lives. It stands to reason, therefore, that anything that can improve our emotional wellbeing, such as crystals, is going to be important in attracting what we want into our lives and that includes – wealth and prosperity.

So, if you aspire to opening- up to the flow of generosity, there are some specific crystals which are known to help attract wealth, prosperity and success. When choosing a crystal, quietly sense which one calls to you. Remember, it is not the crystals themselves that necessarily hold all the power to manifest abundance, it is you – the power inside of you. The crystals add a vibrational quality which greatly assists in channelling and focusing the power that you already have. Say “yes” to success and embark with a playful money mindset!

Some of these Crystals are:

Pyrite:

A Crystal of Pyrite - Awakening AlchemyI touched on this Crystal briefly in my last blog. Pyrite (or as we more commonly know it – fool’s gold) is well recognised as being a crystal that helps us to manifest wealth.

Attributes of Pyrite: In nature it is found in perfectly shiny, gold squares.

What the experts tell us about Pyrite: In crystal understanding it is considered the “good luck” stone and the “true abundance stone”. The beauty of pyrite is you can use it wherever there is wealth or money, to magnify its effect. For example, if you’re running a business, you can place it right next to, or even inside your cash registers. You can even stick a sliver of pyrite right inside of your wallet (your money repository). [A great idea- in fact I highly recommend this whatever crystal calls to you]. Another term for pyrite is the “high manifester” stone. Most experts consider it the top crystal for gathering wealth and prosperity. Known as a heart-opening stone, Pyrite has long been seen as a beautiful crystal for bringing in money. Users say it is the feeling it gives you of certainty of creating what you intend – and in the ideal time frame, that makes it so successful in this area.

Citrine:

Attributes: Citrine is basically a yellowish colour but can come in many shades of yellow. It is considered to be an excellent stone for monetary abundance and personal power. Citrine Abundance - Awakening Alchemy

Citrine can be used in association with meditation. It relates specifically to your third chakra (the solar plexus) and resonates with the colour yellow. Our third chakra is where the seed of how we treat money and think about abundance is located, so using this stone in conjunction with your meditation can be extremely powerful.

If you are not meditating, I have one question – why not? If you need to learn some of the basics of meditation, you may wish to visit my recent blog on meditation, which you can find here:

Most of the citrine people buy is actually amethyst clusters, which have been heated to change their colour. Whereas pyrite is a lead-based mineral and therefore heavy, so it’s a bit like a bull charging through your manifesting blockages, citrine is light, fizzy and happy. In that respect it is saying, find your joy, your happiness – your bliss and the money will follow. Remember what Richard Branson said:

“I didn’t set out to be rich. The fun and the challenge in life is what I wanted – and still do but what I discovered was, the more fun I had, the more the money came rolling in.”

Richard Branson

Other Wealth Attracting Crystals:

  1. Green Jade Heart - Awakening AlchemyGreen jade, Green aventurine, Green moss agate: If you want to wear your crystals (and many people do) then Green Jade is perfect for that and it has been associated with abundance since ancient times.
  2. Clear quartz: Can be seen perhaps as the “little black dress” of the crystal world i.e. it goes with everything. It is great for working with all chakras and encouraging clarity. Having clear quartz in combination with either of the two main abundance stones really helps to amplify the effect of the pyrite or citrine.
  3. Rose quartz: A light-pink quartz it is often used for compassion and love. It softens the walls around your heart and can assist in removing blocks – including money and abundance blocks. We are exceptionally good, as humans, at blocking out the bad stuff from our hearts, but what we also do, inadvertently is block out the good things and that includes money and prosperity.
  4. Selenite: Selenite is known as an energy-clearing crystal. What this can help you with is clearing out your limiting thoughts/beliefs and also your physical environment to allow room for money and prosperity to flow into. This is covered in more detail in my: 3 proven ways to pull in more prosperity report, which I mentioned earlier. One way of thinking about this which may help is that when we are acquiring things, we’re looking for a certain feeling from them. The more room we make in our thoughts and our environment the more abundance and wealth that can come in.
  5. Emerald and Ruby Tumbled Stones: Emeralds promote unconditional love and rubies encourage vitality. If you put them in your purse or wallet, they just assist in giving you that little boost every time you open it up. What speaks money and prosperity more than rubies and emeralds? What you feel, you attract – so if rubies and emeralds give you the feeling of already having wealth and prosperity, then what you’ll attract is more of it.
  6. Amazonite: This is a powerful heart chakra stone. Often referred to as the “truth-telling” stone, what Amazonite will do, especially if it is sewn into your clothes, is it will help give you an aura of “realness” and authenticity and will attract people to resonate with you. Used when meeting with powerful, influential and wealthy people it can assist you to reach out to them emotionally and connect, attracting wealth, influence, and power into your own life.

A Crystal of Pink Quartz - Awakening Alchemy Well, those are just some of the crystals that are associated with wealth and abundance. I do hope you will give them a try. For maximum benefit choose eight crystals, as in Chaldean – Hebrew and Kabala numerology systems, 8 is the number of wealth and prosperity. Also ideally include some green crystals, as green is the energetic and actual [in some currency denominations] colour of money.
