WHEN IT COMES TO CRYSTALS, DOES SIZE MATTER?
I’ve had this question more than once, so thought I would address it here… What do you do when you buy a crystal online, but when it arrives, it is much smaller than you expected? Will it still work? Have you ever wondered whether the tiny black tourmaline you keep at your desk is too small to have any real protective-healing powers? Would you be better off spending your entire tax refund on a larger-than-life geode?
Well, it’s time to put on your energy-healing Inspector Gadget thinking cap and answer an important question: When it comes to crystals, does size matter?
Here’s a guide to getting the most from your crystals, big and small.
Key word here is; ATTRACTION. Attraction is more important than size
Shiva Rose—a holistic healer and author of a physical- and spiritual-wellness book Whole Beauty—says that in her experience, the size of a crystal is not crucial. “If you are drawn to five small rose quartz ones, then those are best for you. Creating a relationship with them is a lot about how they make you feel,” she explains.
Whenever “you are visually drawn to a piece and the vibration aligns with your own, this is when all the healing takes place.” —Megan McCulloch, founder and designer, Max & Vera
But, size can affect a crystal’s vibration. Now, its important to know the difference between energy and vibration. Although “vibrational energy” are often grouped together; they are not the same. A crystals’s vibration is essentially the frequency at which the stone emits its type of healing energy. (Example; Rose Quartz is said to be the stone of unconditional love).
The size of the crystals will not impact its energy ; example: Lapis Lazuli will still be powerful for truthfulness, openness, and mental clarity no matter its dimensions. So, with that high-vibe knowledge in mind, here are:
6 Things You can do with your small pointers, and what they are commonly used for:
Crystal Body Healing:
If you’re plugged into the world of alternative medicine, you’ve probably heard about “crystals”. Crystal healing is a pseudoscientific alternative medicine technique that uses semiprecious stones and crystals such as quartz, amethyst or opals. In one method, the practitioner places crystals on different parts of the body, often corresponding to chakras; or else the practitioner places crystals around the body in an attempt to construct an energy grid, which is purported to surround the client with healing energy.
A crystal grid is an arrangement of crystals on a specific geometric shape that focuses the Universal Life Force in a particular way for a particular purpose. They are an incredibly powerful and beautiful way to manifest your dreams, goals and intentions. Imagine… a single crystal, properly prepared and used, can be a potent energy source for many purposes. The power of a crystal grid comes from the combined energies of the crystals you use, how you lay them out and the intentions you set. With the use of multiple, and if the grid is constructed correctly, you will be able to use its ability to focus and enhance the Universal Life Force easily and effectively. Keep in mind that the universe provides us with what we need, not our desires. So it's best to focus on manifesting a need vs a want, if you would like it to come to fruition. Common intentions that people use for crystal grids are for well being, abundance, healing and protection.
Energy Generators aka Projector Crystals:
The ancients understood that crystals, with all their beauty, also held a valuable and powerful secret: They give off specific vibrations or ‘energy’ and influence our lives in a subtle way when they’re worn. Generator crystals are often favorites of those involved in alternative healing procedures, generating and directing energy in extremely precise regular pulses and patterns, especially when programmed for specific functions. Generator crystals are crystals ending in six faces (facets), all coming to a near-perfect point at the top-center of the crystal. Generators are sometimes also called ‘Projector Crystals’. A Generator Crystal can be found as small as ¼ inch or be as large as a tall building. Generators do exactly what their name implies- they generate and project energy.
We love working with the stones and creating pieces that we know will benefit those who wear them. Natural stone jewelry have been around for millennia, and its uses have been well established in documented history dating as far back as 4000 BC. For example, the ancient Egyptians believed that Red Jasper had the characteristic of assisting with fertility, and, in turn, developed jewelry to promote the property. Other cultures recognized the different qualities and decorative uses of the stone and developed beautiful pieces that adorned their wardrobe. Today, we continue these traditions with the development of spectacular pieces that complement any fashion style while also providing the benefits that the gemstones are well-known for. Based on the composition of the stone, these can help a person achieve homeostasis in different aspects of the human body, mind, and spirit. One of the reasons stones can have a profound effect on humans is because the body is made up of cells and these can resonate with the same silicon-dioxide makeup of crystals. Therefore, such materials can cause a vibratory effect based on the laws of physics through the transfer and flow of energy.
Crystal wands are very useful for scanning the aura and the chakras to locate, cleanse and heal blockages. Crystal wands have the ability to focus and direct energy tightly through their tip. Crystal wands may be used to heal the entire body or aura, or on a specific area of the body or on a particular chakra. The energy tool helps to charge your goals and aims using the potent zeal radiated by crystals. Wands are also widely used throughout history, to ground your basal intentions, focus, and ambitions.
Our gemstones and healing crystals serve as a tool to help connect our conscious thoughts with our body. Thoughts can be powerful because they direct energy and energy follows thought. With healing stones, the real game-changer is when you program them with a specific intention for transformation. Small pointers are great to have in your car, in your purse, your bra, or even your pocket. Wether your intention is Wealth and success, Love and Happiness, Creativity, Spirituality and Faith or Protection and Clearing; keeping your natural gemstone close to you will do wonders.
