Crystals are pretty! Just about every person you talk to has liked a crystal at some point in their lives. From a Diamond ring to a chunk of Amethyst used as a paperweight in your bosses office, shiny rocks draw our attention.
Crystals have been used in medicine and healing forever. Today, if is considered “alternative”, “New Age”, and some refer to it as out right nonsense. Getting into the politics and religious arguments surrounding crystals is beyond the scope of this post and may be discussed another day. Right now I would like to geek-out on the cool science behind crystals.
It’s all about the Silicon (Si) Not to be confused with “Silicone”
The most common chemical elements in the Earth’s crust are; Oxygen (46.6%), SILICON (27.7%), Aluminum, Iron, Calcium, Potassium, Sodium, and Magnesium.
Oxygen and Silicon have a very attractive relationship. They love to bond! When they come together they make the molecule of Silicon Dioxide (Silica). It forms the platonic solid called a Tetrahedron.
This is one of the basic shapes that make up all things. It is part of the Sacred Geometry, universal patterns used in the design of everything in our reality.
You may recognize the word SILCA, it is what makes up sand and quartz crystal. This cool molecule created with sacred geometry is all over the earth.
Of the most common chemical elements in the Earth’s crust, we need Oxygen, Iron, Calcium, Potassium, Sodium and Magnesium to have a healthy body and survive. The interesting part here is that we don’t really hear much about Silicon being needed for a healthy body, BUT IT IS!
Some Cool things that SILICON does for our bodies
* Prevents Deformities in Bones
* Prevents Alopecia
* Maintains Healthy Skin
* Helps Heal Bones and other Cells
* Prevents Aluminum Toxicity
* Restores Mucosa
* Prevents Brittle Nails
PSA: Don’t go eating the Silca Gel packets found in food products. These are for removing
moisture from packaging and not meant for consumption.
Now that we know all this cool stuff about Silicon, its abundance on earth and it’s helpful uses in the body, I’m sure you’re asking what this has to do with crystals. Let’s get to it!
CRYSTAL VIBRATION FREQUENCY:
Things we know: All things in our reality have a frequency vibration. Some of these vibrations we can see in the form of color, some we can hear. We can’t persevere every variation of this vibration though we know it exists, such as UV light, X-Rays, and Infra-Red. Atoms and molecules vibrate a frequency. This vibration is information be it “hey look at me I’m the color red” or “you’re listening to radio station hits1234!”
The biggest part of the mind boggle is that some stuff we know exists even if we can’t see it or hear it which paints a giant picture in our minds of all the stuff around us that is doing things and sending out vibrations that we just don’t even realize. Not being able to receive, recognize or understand that frequency vibration does not mean it therefore does not exist. *POOF MIND BLOWN*
We have been using crystals in our technology for a long time. In radios, watches and computers to name a few. So we KNOW that crystals do have a vibration frequency and have been using that for our many technological creations.
This picture is a quartz crystal resonator, used as the timekeeping component in quartz watches and clocks. It is formed in the shape of a tuning fork. Most such quartz clock crystals vibrate at a frequency of 32,768 Hz.
CRYSTALS REMEMBER DATA:
Silicon is the building blocks of our most common rocks, basalt, granite, schist and sandstone. This includes crystals such as quartz, Amethyst (purple variety of quartz), Datolite, Tourmaline, Rhodonite, Chalcedony, Opal, and Carnelian to name a few.
Pure Silicon is not found in nature because it loves to bond with Oxygen and form different types of compounds. Silicon is obtained by heating silica, or silicon dioxide with carbon or magnesium (or some reducing agent) in an electric furnace.
This pure Silicon is used to create the layers of microchips. The silicon holds data in it’s pits & raises that we designate as 1 & 0 binary code. There are different ways to store data but lets just say the cool thing here is that the data CAN be stored on these chips of Silicon without continued electric current. So yes, just sitting around this silicon has a frequency vibration and stores data. Clearly this can get way more complex, but for me this sums it up nicely 🙂
How does this relate to using a rock or crystal to help heal your body?
Each crystal has it’s own frequency which resonates with our bodies frequencies.
The structure and color play a part in the vibration for each crystal.
Color has a frequency and can be measured in a less complicated way thinking of it as keys on a piano.
Our body has energy centers, called Chakras.
Each Chakra has it’s own color/frequency vibration.
By placing stones and crystals which correspond with these color energy points on the body you can assist the body in correcting it’s tune, balancing, relaxing and healing the body.
It requires a soft focus to move the energy into and out of your chakra centers. What is energy? That’s right it is frequency vibration!
Now the skeptic is quick to point out that they don’t “feel anything”. If you are expecting a jolt that will knock you off your feet it’s not gonna happen. Ask yourself if you feel your tv across the room? How about your wi-fi, UV or X-Rays? We don’t feel an X-Ray but it absolutely effects our body and can produce an image on specialized paper as proof. Writing it off that stones and crystals do nothing begins to seem too ridged and simplistic. They do something even if we don’t recognize or perceive it with our conscious mind right now.
Now that is something big to meditate on! Lay back with your favorite stones and let your mind wander on this for a bit. Let me know what you think! 🙂
