How Do Crystals/Minerals Help Us?

As I made the long, hot walk into town this morning, I noticed a rock beneath a refreshingly green tree. This particular rock caught my eye because it was not the usual dusty shale. This pink rock was a fist-sized piece of pure rose quartz. I was amazed.

“How in hell did you wind up beneath this tree,” I asked the rock, “in this piss-hole desert town?”

I talk to rocks. I talk to everything, even appliances.

Curious, I placed my right hand on the rough surface of the quartz. I then placed my left hand against the tree trunk to balance myself. I instantly connected with the tree’s energy field.

That is when I sensed the connection between the tree and the quartz. The tree’s energy fed off the quartz’s energy.  The energy of rose quartz is as gentle and soothing as a hug from your mother. It calms the nerves, soothes a troubled mind, and helps with sleep.  For the tree, the quartz was a source of comfort in its hot, polluted, noisy city environment.

The energy relationship between stones and living beings is very real. Most people take little notice of rocks, unless it is twinkling on a finger or earlobe. Even the energy of a diamond earring will affect your energy and physical bodies in a positive or negative manner.

First, what is the energy emitted by crystals and minerals?

Universal energy that flows in and through everything enters, for example, the rose quartz. The universal energy blends with the minerals of the stone, which causes the energy to change into a weak electrical energy resonance unique to rose quartz.

The quartz’s man made and natural history also affects the universal energy that enters the stone. History is energy in action. Rocks, trees, houses, everything absorbs the energy produced by historical events and retains it.

No two stones are alike. The rose quartz beneath the tree may emit a similar energy to another piece of rose quartz somewhere else, but the two energies will not match because of each stone’s natural and man made history.

The energy of Brazilian quartz crystal is bright and uplifting, like Carnival in Rio, while the energy of Tibetan quartz is more intense, deep and reflective. Each crystal’s energy reflects its man made and natural history.

I use Brazilian piece of quartz during Reiki healing sessions because the particular crystal’s bright energy is a benefit. The Tibetan quartz, on the other hand, I use in Reiki crystal grids (for sending long distance Reiki) with the rest of my Tibetan quartz or while meditating because its energy is too strong to use for in-person healing.

I tried using a piece of Tibetan quartz during a Reiki self-treatment. I wound up with a migraine because of the stone’s powerful energy, an event that never happens if I use Brazilian quartz.

How does a crystal or mineral’s energy signature affect a person?

What do you do when you need a hug? You find someone who will hug you because you instinctively feel a need for a shot of positive energy. You then feel better because you absorbed that person’s positive energy toward you. That person becomes your comfort, or your rose quartz, and that person feels better for helping you.

Being stuck in your home for days because of rainy weather is depressing and frustrating. The sky clears and the sun comes out. You step outside and instantly a smile blooms on your face! You can feel your mood lifting and energy levels rising. You had a physical, mental, and spiritual need to feel the sun and see the blue sky in order to feel better.

These are two examples of how outside energy affects you on all levels once that outside energy enters your energy field. This is how the relationship between people, crystals, and minerals works.  You feel a need for comfort, so you hold or wear rose quartz. You feel a need for a clearing of negative energy so you might hold or wear Citrine, or yellow quartz.

Then again, you might hate rose quartz or Citrine.

We each know someone we cannot stand, but whom other people find a delight. You may not be able to understand why other people think the annoying person is so wonderful. All you know is he or she rubs you the wrong way.  Your energy and the annoying person’s energy repel instead of attract.

It is the exact same thing with crystals and minerals.

Say you feel a need for motherly comfort, but rose quartz does nothing for you. Instead, you find yourself inexplicably attracted to moonstone. Its energy soothes and comforts you in the way you instinctively need instead of in the way you thought you needed.

Develop a relationship with crystals and minerals. Instinct will guide you to the right crystals or minerals you need, just as your instinct guides you toward the friends right for you.


What The Plants Are Talkin’

My Plant Whispering articles will discuss how to grow individual garden plant varieties organically, as well as talk about what the plant species has to say for itself and how its energy affects the human body.

The rose plant, for example, tones the body’s chakra centers, especially the heart chakra. The rosemary cleans negative energy from our energy field, which helps us feel better mind, body, and spirit. The sweet pea plant is pure innocent joy.

By learning how the plants’ different energies affect us, you can plant what will be, in essence, a medicinal garden!

Be sure to talk to your plants, not just for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide but because your plants are listening and willing to talk with you in their silent intuitive way.

The time is getting away from me. I need to get to Home Depot. Let me do my thing, and then we will talk plants—and talk with plants!

Quiet Strength

A long hot day of painting has finally ended. The house reeks of paint fumes and a nearby dairy. The windows have to stay open so no one passes out from the paint fumes. I look like a Bedouin with my sweat-stained t-shirt wrapped around my head and across the lower half of my face. Yes, it smells that bad. I think my nose hairs have burned away.

From my chair, I can see a stand of sunflowers in a neighboring yard. The neighbors ignore the sunny yellow flowers weaving back and forth in the hot wind. Wild pigeons and other birds take advantage of the shade provided by the towering plants.

I visited the sunflowers early this morning before the sun reared over a nearby mountain. The plants’ calm, almost monastic energy felt as soothing as the cool, quiet interior of a church.

As I meditated beside the sunflowers, I began to hear the low vibratory note caused by their energy field. The plants are in constant communication with each other. Their combined energy vibrates at the same level. The low note created by their energy field was faint, heard almost in the back of my mind, but it was there.

I have heard a “singing voice” from other plant species, a field of artichoke, for example. The combined energy field emitted by a field of artichoke, though, creates a high pure note, maybe an ‘A’ note. It is hard to tell because the sound is so faint and it is difficult to stay connected.

I remained beside the sunflowers for several minutes, soaking in their serene energy until the sun rudely interrupted by rising over the mountain. I came away feeling as if I had been listening to a Gregorian chant.

As I sit here watching the sunflowers endure the desert wind and brutal sun I realize I do not care if the house smells of cows and paint. This Bedouin is smiling.

Hello world!

Being a freelance writer demands that I read anything and everything. While doing so, I have come across a lot of negativity toward people with abilities lumped under the word ‘psychic’. Society is suspicious of psychics because of the many scam artists that claim to be psychics, as well as our silly media image (Yes, I am psychic). People start yelling, “There is no scientific evidence that proves psychic abilities are real!”

I have never seen a photo of an atom or a photon, and yet the science community believes in their existence, as do I.

I suspect the fear people have of their secrets and inner selves being found out causes people to feel, oh, dare I say, threatened by a person with psychic abilities. As a result, many known psychics are mocked or avoided, even by family members.

Light workers, people who practice energy medicine to help heal other people or animals, is another group often frowned upon by society. How can anyone heal another person by touch? And what is this energy these weirdos claim they can channel through their hands?

No one actually heals anyone. Reiki energy, the same energy that flows around and through everything in the universe, strengthens the body’s natural healing system and helps the person being healed to let go of stress and often emotional wounds. Find a qualified Reiki practitioner and experience a relaxing healing session. You will thank me later.

This blog is going to address all things psychic (I really hate that label) as well as Reiki and other alternative healing methods. I will also relate personal experiences I have had to provide insight into my seemingly mysterious, spiritual, and sometimes funky world.

Psychics, light workers, and the work we do are nothing to fear. We work with quiet patience as we try our best to help others in need of a more penetrating view into life.

Welcome to Animal Earth Reiki. Prepare to be amazed.
