This week we continue the conversation about crystals. We put together some of the most common questions about the workings of crystals and asked Mark Bajerski & Lella Satie to give us a more in depth overview of the power of crystals. The questions come from those with more experience with crystals and those with no previous knowledge or understanding. After reading this article if you'd like to know more, you can leave your question in the comments below and we might include it in one of the next blogs.
How do you know that crystals work?
M: Probably because I've seen too many miracles with children, heart broken men, depressed women, and once the crystal has been given to them the transformation is either instantaneous or within couple of weeks the individual changes from a state of suffering to deep inner peace. On a personal note, sixteen years ago crystals transformed my life from living with stress and hectic energy to finding inner peace through my work with crystals. The most powerful talisman in our world, beyond any other that I've worked with is a crystal.
L: In one word: trust. In more words: after my university I was a sceptic of everything non-science based. I was trained to question everything and look for the scientific proof. Spirituality is labeled a pseudo-science which implies you shouldn't trust it. I'd say now, that was programming -to only trust the formal narrative and the "official" sources. When I began my journey of transformation I began to question all of that programming and began to listen to myself, my intuition and the inner spiritual voice. I connected with mentors which introduced me to those things that I could feel and not yet fully understand. They validated my inner truth. In the previous blog I wrote about it: I trusted my spiritual mentor that crystals will help my healing. And it worked! My experience is my scholastic evidence in my own study and observation; and that is what I trust more than any scientific mind or logic.
How do crystals work to help you?
M: The simple answer is you don't need to know how crystals work. What you need to know is really simple: as soon as you feel attached to a crystal; as soon as you feel drawn to a crystal, what I call "the crystal chooses you"; this is the starting point of the connection with that crystal. Even after one healing session, the work of a crystal can be felt for days, weeks and months to come. The crystal never stops working.
L: How crystals work is how nature works, powered by Light & Love. The energy of sunshine (Light) maintains life on Earth as does Love. Give a newborn baby (whether of human or animal kingdom) only food and no love and it won't thrive. Give them nature AND nurture and they will live a healthy, happy life. We don't need to get into the minutia of how things work for them to work. As we are of nature and so are crystals - they compliment our energy and vibration. I am not interested in pleasing the sceptic with a scientific proof in an answer. There are many things science cannot explain; and many things that science is made to explain in a way that maintains a certain practice or belief. We are witnessing a time when scientists and doctors disagree at large and some are admitting to adjusting their findings to get funding etc. If you like to please your logical thought there are studies in quantum physics which might give you a more logical explanation on how crystals work.
Do they help those who don't believe in spiritual work?
M: Without a doubt. I have seen the hardened man; a stubborn teenager; the most sceptical woman transform from a belief that crystals were merely stones to holding a crystal with an open heart and feeling of a new sense of self realization and a belief that the crystal really worked for them. I worked with men who didn't believe in crystals, to getting one and never wanting to take it off. Women came to my healing studio who lived in conflict with their husbands and felt lack of love and loss of connection. After gifting their husband a crystal, they would witness a huge shift. The man's behaviour would change from aloofness or aggression to becoming more sensitive; loving; kind; understanding and empathic. The husband became more open and the healing of crystals reveals painful traumas of the childhood. This brought them an awareness of why they acted with a weakness. They now had a choice to transform and change their ways in which they hurt their partner and their relationship to becoming their true beautiful self.
L: Yes. I've seen a change in people that I gifted the crystals to. Even the sceptics who don't believe in this work, feel more connected to their own spirit. They become more at ease; their nature becomes kinder; they feel more calm and balanced. I've seen children more at peace as they play with their siblings and friends, in a new energy of positivity and communication. Without verbal cues the children were in a flow and balance. The upset is gone, they would not scream at each other or fight. They move and play with a beautiful energy of respect and love for each other.
How would you define these terms: energy, frequency, vibration?
L: These words are sometimes used interchangeably to define and explain the subtle work of the energy and the invisible of our spirit and our human beingness. Energy is what we can feel, as when you notice your emotions; when you are happy or sad; or when you are in presence of others. You can feel their energy - emotions. The frequency can be defined as the level of awareness. You can be aware that there are certain parts of your being and the cosmos that you cannot explain but you know they are part of you. The spiritual world vibrates at a different frequency than the physical world. Think of it as tuning your radio to another station. Vibration is the energy emitted by crystals; or anything else, like objects or electromagnetic radiation emitted by technology. The EMF like many man-made things emit a toxic vibration. Things of nature resonate with nature and are healing, such as crystals.
What is the work of the crystal?
M: Crystals have a powerful energy to transform a human or animal energy from low vibration to higher to make them feel better in all aspects of life. Crystal does one of two things: it has an energy wave that locates negative energy in the body and clears it; and the other, it has an energy wave to strengthen certain areas of the body - physical as well as spiritual. If the physical is well and healthy it has more power to attune to spiritual. For example if your pineal gland is weak due to calcification by toxins and if you don't consciously exercise it with intuitive work, mindfulness and all the techniques to awaken the spiritual self. Then the crystal will emit an energy wave or a pulse that directs vibration to the pineal gland (or another point in your body) to awaken its positive energy to help you heal and strengthen.
How to start working with crystals?
M & L: To start working with crystals you simply hold a crystal in your hand; or place it on a point over your body; wear it as a pendant; put it under a pillow and trust that the crystal is doing its work to heal you on many levels. There are many levels of crystal working on you to fit into a book, but for now just know that the energy vibration of crystals will benefit all of the of aspects of your well being.
