Crystal People: Making the Connection

Enter into an in-depth discussion about the world of the Crystal People. In this blog spot we will explore the truth that crystals are sentient beings and learn how to connect with them. We’ll cover all areas of quartz crystal such as how they form, methods of cleansing, clearing and programming, how and why to make crystal grids and other tools, how and where to dig your own crystals and much more.

DIGGING QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN ARKANSAS 5 of 6: How To Find It

This is a continuation of a series on digging crystal in Arkansas. Last time we discussed what to wear, what tools are essential, and the other intimate details of what to pack in your vehicle. This time let's get down to the actual nitty gritty of digging the crystal and let's talk about what to look for in the tailings themselves.

In the new tailings, you will be looking for sticky masses of clay. At the majority of the mines I have been to, the clay is red. Some mines have different colors of dirt and clay, depending on the composition of the Earth. We'll just discuss the red clay, since it is in the majority, but keep in mind it may differ according to where you are.

DIGGING QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN ARKANSAS 4 of 6: What To Bring

Last time we talked about when the best time is for digging crystal in Arkansas, and covered a little bit about new tailings versus old tailings, dry weather versus wet. Whichever area and whatever weather, crystal digging is a dirty process. Even when it's not wet, the red clay permanently discolors your clothes. In this post we'll talk about what to bring, what type of clothes to wear and what tools are handy to have.

Wear something old that you don't mind getting stained. It is ideal if you have a pair of coveralls or overalls. When you are ready to pack it in and go home, you can strip off your dirty outer layer and ride home in relatively clean, dry clothes. Of course, there are bathrooms at some (not all) of the mines, so you can change before you go home. I find that I am usually too tired to change my clothes, and my truck is testament to this fact. You might want to put old towels or sheets over your seats if you are persnickety and don't want your vehicle to get all dirty, dusty and stained.

DIGGING QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN ARKANSAS 3 of 6: When To Go

Last time we discussed a general overview of digging quartz crystal in Arkansas. This week we'll cover when is the best time to dig.

Cool weather is the ideal time to go digging. In Arkansas, the most reliably cool weather occurs in the Spring or Fall. Of course, there are days during the winter that are mild and enjoyable and sometimes you might luck into a cool day in the summer.

DIGGING QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN ARKANSAS 2 of 6: General Description

Last time we discussed crystal mining in Arkansas and how it varies from digging. Digging your own crystal is a rewarding and exhilarating experience; because I'll describe digging in much more detail later, for now, I will speak in generalities.

Most of the mines require a small digging fee for the entire day. You simply choose a mine, pay the fee, sign a liability release and then start digging. Safety is a major concern for all ages. Children need close supervision and must be guided and watched diligently. There are a lot of drop offs and places for little (and big) people to get seriously hurt. However, if the safety considerations are carefully observed, I would recommend crystal digging to people of all ages. It is important to remember that common sense is the most important tool to use.

DIGGING QUARTZ CRYSTAL IN ARKANSAS 1 of 6:

Last blog post we talked about where to dig crystal in Arkansas, in this post I was planning to cover how to dig. It's a MUCH bigger subject than it seems like it might be, so I am breaking it into several parts. Let's start with the actual crystal mining process and we'll cover what the difference is in "mining" and "digging".

Crystals emerge from the earth in two ways; either they are dug out by people, or they surface on their own through natural causes such as folding, faulting and erosion. By comparison, when we dig them out, they are “born” via C-Section (versus erosion, which would be comparable to natural delivery). There is often controversy about whether we should be bringing the crystals out of the Earth or leaving them there. I have been guided to understand that Mother Earth and the Crystal People know how much humanity needs their assistance going into this new era, so they're allowing us to deliver them by C-Section. To wait for the crystal to emerge on the Earth's time scale, we probably would have destroyed ourselves three or four times over, so that by the time they made their way out into the sunshine, we'd have already been toast. Mother Earth and the Crystal People are graciously, and intentionally, allowing us to cut open and dig in to pull them out now, while there's still time to save humanity.

Where To Dig Crystal in Arkansas

This is one of the most asked questions I get, and it is actually a little bit difficult to answer for a variety of reasons.

First, there are several options available. The mines are all the same in that you are digging for crystal, but they also vary greatly in amenities, ease of access, whether or not they are currently being worked, etc...

A COMPREHENSIVE LOOK AT PROGRAMMING CRYSTALS (Part 2 of 2) How to do it and When

Last week we covered part one of A Comprehensive Look at Programming where we covered what it is and why to do it. We're going to pick right up where we left off last week with actually programming a crystal. If you read the post last week, I suggested you think of a basic (simple) program you might like to try and to find the crystal friend to help you. Once you have chosen the crystal, you need to cleanse and clear it.

As a reminder, cleansing is removing any residual energy it may have picked up in the environment. This crystal may have been recently cleansed, but it is good to do again, just prior to programming.
