Tips ’n’ Tricks: Dream Crystals.

Thomas Edison carried quartz crystals with him at all times and called the stones his dream crystals. He believed they inspired his ideas and inventions. Literary legends George Sand and William Butler Yeats also relied on crystals to help spark their considerable creativity.  

Data has also been gathered to show the effectiveness of quartz in certain healing techniques, such as chakra therapy, acupressure, and light-ray therapy, as we will discuss in depth later. But the simplest way to promote healing with crystal is to wear a stone.

The Power of Crystals and Gems

“Where do gemstones get their power? They all have a crystalline structure that can collect, store, and release electromagnetic energy, similar to the way today’s commonplace battery does.  

Scientists and engineers have discovered through experimentation that a crystal will accumulate and concentrate the energy of any given energy field in close proximity. Further, they’ve discovered that if a crystal is squeezed, energy from within the crystal is released. Light can also be released during the compression of a crystal. While the expansion is infinitesimal, electrons are emitted and are then reabsorbed by the crystal, thus producing energy. Schoolchildren discover this by rubbing or heating crystals and feeling a marked static change. This is known as the piezoelectric effect. Anyone who doubts the power of this effect need only be told that it is one of the causes of earthquakes.

Elixir of Ecstasy: DIY Crystal Magic

Elixirs are very simple potions made by placing a crystal or gemstone in a glass of water for at least seven hours. Remove the stone and drink the “crystallized” water. The water will now carry the vibrational energy of the stone, the very essence of the crystal. This is one of the easiest ways to take in crystal healing, and it is immediate. The red stones always hold the “lust for life,” so to push the envelope, put as many red stones into your elixir as you can get your hands on. Gather the following:

  • Red stones and crystals such as carnelian, garnet, rough ruby, red coral, red jade, red jasper, red sardonyx, cuprite, aventurine, or red calcite
  • Jar or glass full of water
  • Amber incense
  • Red candle

Mix and match the red stones, and remember, if you only have access to one rough ruby and a tiny chunk of red jasper, so be it—that is still a lot of love in a jar!

Red Heart Rubies Rite
If you are like me, you can't afford to buy a ruby on impulse. But I have been gladdened lately by the appearance of three-dollar “rough rubies” at a shop at Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco. If you don’t have a store like that near you, you can shop online at as they have wonderful stones from around the world. Rubies are stones of great passion. Here is a simple way to light a flame by day that will catch fire with your lover by night.
Hold your ruby in your left hand over your heart and speak these words aloud three times:
I can feel the heat of your skin
and your mouth.
I can taste the kisses sweet.
Your hands on me;
my hands on you.
Oh, lover, hear my song.
Tonight, we will be as one,
all night long.
Now carry your heart-warmed red ruby in your pocket all day long. Don’t forget to give your lover a call and invite him or her over for a long and lovely night.

New Moon Crystal Shrine

To enchant all of your jewelry, you need to create an altar for this express purpose. You can prepare the way for letting crystal and gem magic into your life, and focusing your desires and dreams, with a crystal-magic altar. If you already have an altar in place, incorporate some of the following elements. The more you use your altar, the more powerful your spells will be.

Your gem-magic altar can be a low table, the top of a chest, or even a shelf. First, you must purify the space with the smoke of a sage bundle. This is called smudging, and is essential in clearing energy to make way for magic. You can use wild sage or purchase it at any herb store or metaphysical five and dime.
