Illness as Messenger: Follow up to Crystal Healing

Wow. Look at this crystal. This is an example of Self Healing which occurs during the growth of the crystal. Many times the earth movement causes crystals to break during their growth. I bet it didn't expect to get all smashed up like that during its growth! However, it didn't sit down and quit, it just kept on growing. It sealed over the rough, broken edges and in that process attracted some Barnacles (smaller crystals attracted to an old soul crystal) and kept getting prettier and prettier.

The same concept can be applied to us when we find ourselves broken or injured in some way. We heal up our wounds and keep on keepin' on.

Crystal Healing: Helping Ourselves

Hey everyone!

Another question has come up that I thought I would address as a blog post. Curt asks:

"I find my crystal work is more effective in assisting others than it is when I assist myself. What do you advise?"

That's a really great question, and one I have often asked myself over the years. Why is it that most healing modalities seem more effective when we apply them to others than when we work on ourselves?

When we work on ourselves, many different factors come into play:

Orgonite: What is it?

I am a little behind on blogposts. We had a huge tornado come through a couple of weeks ago here in Arkansas. I wrote a post about that on my personal blog, if you want to read it, it is found here.

The subject of this post is Orgone and Orgonite. Although I have never studied it, the subject of Orgonite has been in my working vocabulary for years. I've been sending crystals out all over the world for making devices such as Orgonite, Orgone Generators, Cloud Busters, Orgone Accumulators and Holy Hand-grenades (to name just a few). I've always wondered what they were (I knew in general, but in specific I had no idea).

Recently, a friend contacted me about obtaining crystal for Orgonite Healing Sculptures he has been making, and he sent me one, made specifically for me. He included gemstones with properties specific to my needs as well as special gemstones and a crystal I sent from my personal family of stones.

Crystals with Water in them or Enhydro Crystals

Here's another awesome question from my friend Karen, this time, about Enhydro crystals. She asks:

Enhydros (sp?) Crystal? Have you come across any of these? Can you share more of what they do? I have learned they balance the Divine Masculine/Feminine. Is this correct? Thanks!

    Hey carol! I used to have a pen with a little boat in it that moved when you tilted it, it seemed I could play with that for days.
Other Triangle and Square Shapes on Crystals (Growth Interference and Record Keepers)

Last time we talked about Keys and Imprints. There are other ways that triangles and squares may present on crystals. We'll discuss those here, namely Growth Interference and Record Keepers.

GROWTH INTERFERENCE

Indentations and markings similar to Imprints and Keys also occur but they fall into a different category. Some of these triangular and square-shaped impressions are caused by what is called Growth Interference. Growth Interference happens when another mineral grows during the development of the crystal and then subsequently disappears.

Crystal Keys and Imprints - What are they?

YAY!  OK, so I had a question from my friend, Karen (the Feng Shui Lady) Adams. She writes:

"Tell me about crystals with "Keys" such as squares and triangles. I have heard about gazing at them in meditation? Anything else you can share would be exciting!"

Oh! this is a great question.

Polished Crystal versus Natural (unpolished) Crystal: What's the Difference?

I often get questions about polished crystal and how it differs from natural crystal. When I talk about polished crystal I am referring to crystal which has had its sides and or faces cut and polished with a machine (like the crystals in the image above, (photo credit curiogrove.com)). 

Natural crystal is crystal which has not had its shape altered and remains the same as it was when it grew in the earth (like the crystals in the photo below).

Sometimes crystal is polished because of surface dings or marring caused from the mining process. Lots of Brazilian points come to us completely polished; termination, bottom, and sides. At times just one side or face and the base (which is usually beveled as well), will be polished while the rest of the crystal is left in its natural state. Sometimes the crystal points are so damaged that they would be unusable (due to sharp edges, etc), so in these cases it is really beneficial and best for the crystal that they do this.

Many times a point will be polished into a Generator (six equal faces with a centrally located point) or even Channeler or Dow. However, while the termination may have been ground or polished externally into that shape, the internal structure is still going to
