Copper – The Wonder Material of the 21st Century –

I’m in love with copper. The following article will hopefully share some details about why I love this incredible metal so much, how it’s essential to our modern lives and how it can help you heal your mind, body and soul.

Shiny, reddish copper was the first metal ever manipulated by humans, and it remains an important metal in industry today.

Copper has various properties which make it nearly indispensable to modern civilizations. It is an essential nutrient to all plants and animals.

Without copper, our modern lifestyles wouldn’t exist, it’s a vital component of everything electronic, which we so depend on each day to survivecopper2 - Copper - The Wonder Material of the 21st Century -

Physical and Mental Healing Properties

Copper is used in the treatment of wounds and skin diseases, as well as internal diseases, anemia, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease. It can also help improve the circulation of blood, increasing energy and detoxifying the body.

It is used to bring along energies for all types of healing, including the treatment of arthritis, pain relief of broken bones, as well as sexual instability and low energy. Copper jewelry has been found to relieve joint stiffness and arthritis by opening the flow of blocked energy.

 

Spiritual + Psychic Properties: According to myths, it is a conductor of the spiritualist’s belief system and is able to conduct spiritual energy back and forth between individuals, crystals, auras, the mind and the spirit world.

It is also believed that copper has the power to amplify thoughts when sending and receiving psychic communications.

Copper has the ability to ground and transfer a wide array of vibrational frequencies and supports healing by keeping the pathways for healing open.

Copper improves the powers of communication, and it helps with channeling, cleansing, purifying and increasing self-esteem and freeing the wearer of mental burdens.

 

How to Heal: Wearing copper jewelry eases joint stiffness and arthritis by opening the flow of blocked energy, supporting the body’s natural healing process.

Infusing it into surfaces has been proven to help decrease infections in hospitals. It can also be infused in a variety of elements. Many also carry the stone with them.

Some interesting Copper Facts!

  2. The average home contains 400 pounds of copper that is used for electrical wiring, pipes and appliances. The average car has 50 pounds of copper.
  3. All gold contains some level of copper, even 24 karat gold. This is because gold is so soft, it can be molded with the hands and calls for a bit of copper to be added.
  4. Professional chefs prefer to cook with copper pots and pans, as it delivers uniform cooking and has no heat spots.
  5. Copper is naturally antibacterial. Brass doorknobs, handrails and fingerplates are excellent choices for public buildings and will prevent the spread of bacteria.

  13. Copper can be alloyed with tin to make bronze and alloyed with zinc to make brass.
  14. Although the Dead Sea Scrolls have been known to be made with rare animal skins, one that was recovered contains copper.

Today i’m gonna explain to you a few methods of finding crystals , gemstones and minerals to start or expand your Crystal Collection!

Whether you’re just starting out, or you already have a formidable bunch of crystal allies in your arsenal, this information will surely help get your started on your journey, and strengthen your connection to the mineral kingdom. This guide is to show that even if you don’t have any human money credit token things, you can still build an impressive healing gemstone collection.

If you’re a lucky son of a gun and happen to live near a beach, congrats! Or, even when you go on holiday, I strongly urge you to have a little treasure hunt along the coast, it doesn’t matter if it’s a sandy beach or a pebble one, there’s hidden treasure everywhere. Countless times i’ve walked along the beach only to stumble upon a surprise gem. Did I mention free crystals?

It doesn’t really matter if you don’t know what you’ve found, what matters is how it feels to you, if it makes you feel good, or you’re drawn to it, TAKE IT! You’ll get the same if not more benefit from a funky looking stone you found, as you will from a new age shop. There’s a couple of pretty good books though to help:

So many stones and pebbles on the beach are Quartz, Jasper, Haematite and most people just walk idly by without taking any notice. If you’re really lucky you’ll find some Amber, I once found a piece of Jet, which is easily distinguished because of it’s lightness. Both Amber and Jet float on water so they regularly end up on beaches. FREE CRYSTALS !

Walking barefoot in the sand is immensely beneficial and healing because the sand itself is made up of microscopic crystals, coupled with the salt water you’ve got some good vibes right there.

BUT WAIT! I DON’T LIVE NEAR A BEACH!

Do not despair, there is a simple solution to your problem.

Like many people, you most likely have a driveway, or know of a building or neighbor nearby that has a gravel/ stone driveway or path.

I have good news.

These stones weren’t originally here, they were imported from somewhere else that was full of stones and pebbles.

Can you think of anywhere that might fit that description?

The majority of pebble driveways are stones that have been moved from BEACHES

Trust me, pick a few stones up when they’re wet and give them a sniff. You will smell the sea.

I hope this has inspired you to go out on a treasure hunt, I hope you have deep pockets or a wheelbarrow, because once you start, you won’t want to stop.

Peace out.

Gemstones: Magic or Science?

A Scientific Epiphany

I was lying in bed last night, just chillaxing with a crystal in each hand, after a few minutes both my hands were tingling and vibrating!

This is the first time i’ve really felt anything from gemstones so as you can imagine I was pretty surprised.

Now, I’m a scientist at heart, so I had to rule out other possibilities to make sure it was true.

I have great circulation, so no, it wasn’t that.

Much to my displeasure, I haven’t had any psychedelic drugs…today anyway.

I even put the crystals down for a while, then picked them up again, sure enough the vibrations came back.

The scientist in me is going nuts, surely these minerals can’t have any other purpose than looking awesome…can they?

All modern science was once considered magic, our fancy technology would have you burned at the stake not long ago, so this leads me to believe that for all we’ve discovered, there is so much more to be found.

As far as i’m aware, there hasn’t been much scientific evidence found for the beneficial properties of gemstones, granted, but maybe that’s due to our technology not being sufficiently advanced to measure the kind of energy minerals and gemstones emit?

Everything we see, feel and experience lies in a very small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, visible light, as our senses are so limited to what they can perceive. outside of these boundaries, lies a vast untouchable universe waiting to be explored, maybe these perfectly geometric expressions of life emit energy in these upper frequencies of existence, and although most of the time we can’t visually  measure and perceive their effects, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t functioning.

You can’t see the wind, does that mean it doesn’t exist?

As mother earth moves through various places in the galaxy, she and everything living on her raises in vibrational frequency, this leads to a “thinning of the veil” so to speak, meaning that those things existing on different “radio station” frequencies are more frequently observed.

A simple analogy would be that of a radio receiver, as you turn the dial and change the station, there is a moment between two stations where you hear both at the same time, mixing with one another, eventually one of the stations fades away and the new one takes precedence.

Everything I speculate has a purely scientific basis, I believe that all magic and myth can and will be explained through scientific means.

That’s all for today folks, I’m not claiming this is all true, just merely my speculative thoughts on the matter a hand.

Oh, and if you’re wondering which gemstones I was holding at the time, it was one of the my new Cactus/Spirit Ametrines from SA,

Here’s  a link to an article about them, and my listing where you can purchase one:

Spirit Quartz/ Cactus Quartz Properties

Hey there folks, To celebrate the arrival of some beautiful new friends from South Africa, I’m posting this to enlighten you as to the properties of Spirit Quartz!

Spirit Quartz Has Many Powerful Properties!!
Spirit quartz is a actually a community within a stone, with each of the tiny crystals working in harmony with the larger crystal to create the effect of a hundred-voice choir singing in harmony! It focuses this powerful harmonic energy on the third-eye and crown chakras, helping you to bring high-frequency energy into the physical body. Spirit Quartz stimulates the crown chakra, opening it fully so you can receive ‘downloads’ of spiritual information and communication from guides! It’s frequencies are excellent for meditation work and attaining a sense of oneness with all that is.

They are very powerful healing tools! It helps harmonize the levels of the aura, the chakras, meridians and the physical body! It assists with the integration of energy on a physical level, and can eradicate unharmonious vibrations from the energetic field. It is also very cleansing and purifying to the auric field. It can repel negative attachments and entities, repair holes in the etheric body, balance the astral body and bring the chakras and meridians up to their optimal level of functioning! It can also dissolve imbalances at meridian node points, the simplest way to do this is for you to hold the crystal a few inches and with the point facing the blocked area, and then rotate it counter-clockwise until the blockage is dissolved!

It brings peace of mind and freedom from fear! Fear governs much of human behavior, and Spirit Quartz gently releases the tension of our conscious and unconscious fears allowing us to truly live!!

sacredgeometry3 1130x685 - The Science of Crystals.

The Science of Crystals.

Crystals are gaining popularity again recently, and most people seem polarised in their views towards them. Many people are skeptical of these new age, far out theories about crystal healing, and others embrace these new (yet ancient) treatments with open arms and hearts.

The following is an explanation of how crystals help us in a metaphysical sense.

Crystals emit steady vibrations that help to create Balance within oneself and the spaces around us.

At an atomic level, our universe is in a constant state of vibration. Crystals are extremely good at holding a stable vibration due to their crystalline lattice structure. We, on the other hand are a very complex mix of vibrations that can easily be disturbed, become unbalanced which makes us sick and unwell. All kinds of things can affect our vibration, from external influences such as electromagnetic and geopathic stress, to internal ones such as constant negative thought patterns and suppressing emotions.

Crystals emit steady vibrations that cut through chaotic frequencies and give us that ‘heat’ or ‘air vibration’ feeling. It is for this reason that for thousands of years crystals have been used for their powerful healing properties. It’s no wonder Crystal Quartz is used to power a number of modern day machines including watches, radio transmitters and computers.

WHAT SHOULD I BELIEVE ABOUT CRYSTAL ENERGY

What you want to take from the science behind crystals is really up to you. I definitely believe that if you can use a natural object to bring some peace into your life, space and a stillness to you mind then that is something worthwhile. I do tend to have a more modern take on crystals and although believe in their healing properties never feel like these things should be taken too literally. After all by setting our crystals with positive affirmations we are manifesting the world to return to us the positive life experiences that we seek. The more you choose to have positive intentions and constructive thoughts, the more the world mirrors them back to you. And remember; What we think or believe about ourselves and the world becomes our reality.

The following is an article written by one of my favourite fellow crystal bloggers; Ethan Lazzerini. All credit goes to him for the information that follows!

Not sure where to start? Begin your Crystal Healing journey with these Must-Have crystals for beginners. Seven essential crystals NOBODY should be without.

So Many Crystals, Where Do I Start?
The Crystal Kingdom is vast and with many newly discovered and rare crystals catching our eyes in the shops, or on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram. If your new to Crystal Healing it can be overwhelming.
Perhaps you’re not sure where to even start? Maybe you have been distracted by some of the more exotic crystals and your crystal collection is lacking some of these core crystals. This article should help.

Why These Crystals For Beginners?
I recommend these crystals for beginners firstly because they are must-have crystals. I do not think your crystal collection would be complete without these stones. Their properties and uses are so valuable yet they will not cost you the Earth! Affordable, easy to find and all with uniquely different energies.

“These are crystals you will be working with for a lifetime and keep going back to over and over again!”

Tumble Stones or Crystal Points?
Please note that all you need if you are just starting is a Tumble Stone which are easily available everywhere. These polished crystals are easy to carry on you and place on your body or chakras. To learn more about Chakra Balancing with crystals check out my book Crystal Healing For The Chakras.
Some of the crystals on my list such as Quartz and Amethyst are also available as natural, polished or cut Crystal Points. These will cost a bit more. They are worth it later on as you progress and start to learn and sense how the form of a crystal affects its energy.

Crystal Healing Properties and You
Although I include my take on the main properties of these crystals for beginners below to start, never ignore how you feel. Try the stones out and see how they work for you. Meditate with them. You will over time build your own relationship with each crystal.
