Why are crystals so popular among spiritual people? Science tells us that matter, and thus rocks and crystals are dead, have no life in them. But science is very limited in its approach. Consciousness, emotions and thoughts, for example, are not recognized by scientists, although it is obvious we all have them. The idea of life force is also shunned by most scientists.
However, those whose higher senses are developed, will tell you that crystals, rocks and even elemental matter are imbued with life force, and thus consciousness, be it of a different order than plants, animals and humans.
A visible sign of life force is the degree of order. In nature, and by extension in the universe, a play between order and disorder exist. When matter particles, molecules, organs, and even larger systems order themselves, life forms arise. Life force orders, and it forms a conduit for a conscious entity to occupy that ordered form. This ordered form can be a single cell, multiple cells, organs, bodies, even communities. The most basic ordering we find in matter. Atoms are ordered. Rocks and crystals have an ordered, crystalline structure.
When the life force in living forms withdraws, the order in the forms goes to an disorderly state. We call this decay and death.
Crystals, of various kinds, and especially quartz crystals, have a high degree of order in their crystalline lattice. That reveals it to us that crystals are alive and have consciousness. Therefore we can interact with that consciousness, resonate with it, or use it for a particular purpose.
When a crystal comes into being, crystallizing out of a fluid, growing from what is called a seed crystal, its growth will be guided by the conscious life form behind it. It is the same with higher life forms. We humans have a divine spirit that connects with the fertilized egg in the womb. Then the spirit begins to direct the division and the order of the cells, creating a physical body to inhabit. With animals and humans there is an individual spirit that inhabits each body, but with plants and crystals the ordering life force comes from a subtle being that is connected with that specific kind of plant or crystal. For example, quartz crystals are grown, vivified and maintained by a subtle being, usually called a deva, that embodies all quartz crystals. When you look at a quartz crystal, the life force or consciousness is not individual but diffuse. It has a particular ‘vibration’ or signature that connects with the crystal deva.
Conscious life forms can impart information inside a crystal. Other beings, like nature spirits, can store information in crystals during or after their formation inside the Earth. Likewise, the human mind can transfer information directly from the mind into the crystal by thoughts, using will power and intention. Marcel Vogel, a scientist, inventor, and healer, developed the faceted Vogel Crystals, brought us a method to achieve this. As he himself psychically discovered, this process is not new, but was already practiced in the Atlantean times. Look up his weekend workshops on YouTube. He is gone now, and we are very fortunate to have these to watch and learn from.
There are some amazing crystal skulls around, from Atlantean times and afterward, that are charged up with a lot of energy and information that can be accessed by those with developed psychic abilities. It is not unusual for them to find that some of these skulls have subtle, or spiritual, beings who are still working through these skulls. Crystals are a valuable tool, and there is much more to them than just something pretty to look at if you will take your time, relax, open your intuition, experiment with them, and look further. By doing so you will open doorways to self awareness and self development, they are wonderful helpers.
