Making Shungite Water

Shungite water has been shown to be anti-viral and anti-bacterial, removing harmful micro-organisms and pollutants. Research has shown that Shungite absorbs that which is hazardous to health whether it be pesticides, free radicals, bacteria and the like, or EMF, microwave and other vibrational emissions. It boosts physical well-being and has a powerful effect on the…

Jeni Campbell www.angeladditions.co.uk[/caption] [gallery link="file" columns="2" size="medium" ids="6207,6206"] Shungite water has been shown to be anti-viral and anti-bacterial, removing harmful micro-organisms and pollutants. Research has shown that Shungite absorbs that which is hazardous to health whether it be pesticides, free radicals, bacteria and the like, or EMF, microwave and other vibrational emissions. It boosts physical well-being and has a powerful effect on the immune system. Restoring emotional equilibrium, it transmutes stress into a potent energetic recharge. A traditional cure-all, anecdotal evidence and current research suggest that Shungite assists cellular metabolism, neurotransmitters, the immune, digestive and filtration systems. It enhances enzyme production and provides pain relief. It is a detoxifier, antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antihistamine. Shungite Water is used to treat sore throats, burns, cardio-vascular diseases, blood disorders, allergies, asthma, gastric disturbances, diabetes, arthritis and osteoarthritis, kidney and liver disorders, gall-bladder dysfunction, auto-immune diseases, pancreatic disorders, impotence and chronic fatigue syndrome. Shungite Water is made in a slightly different way to the usual crystal essence. To become biologically active, water needs to have Shungite immersed in it for at least forty eight hours. However, once the first batch has been made, you can simply refill the filter jug every time you use some of the water so that it is constantly replenished. Wash the jug and the bag of Shungite at least once a week depending on how much water you have used (you can store the activated water and return it to the jug). Place the Shungite in the sun for a few hours to recharge or use a proprietary crystal recharging essence. I find raw Shungite more effective than the silvery tumbles, but, no matter how often the non-vitreous type of Shungite has been washed, it does tend to leave a very fine suspension of black particles in the water. I have drunk this for several years now without any ill effects and, indeed, I believe it to have contributed greatly to my overall well-being. However, if you prefer you can make the water by the indirect, no-contact method by placing the Shungite in a sealed glass container so that the vibrations transfer. Making the water: You will need: 2 litre filter jug Fine mesh 2” bag of raw Shungite (10-100gm) 2 or 3 pieces of Elite or Noble Shungite   Wash the raw Shungite thoroughly. It will release fine black particles. This will continue as you make the Shungite water but it is part of the process. Place the mesh bag of Shungite in the base of the filter jug (if using tap water you can also use a commercial filter if the jug is provided with one). Pour water into the jug until it is full. Stand it aside for 48 hours. Then top up the water each time it is used. Cleanse the Shungite frequently under running water and re-energise in the sun or fresh air. The water can also be stored in bottle, preferably glass but plastic if not, with two or three pieces of Elite Shungite in the bottom to keep the water fresh. As the water potentizes, your jug will begin to look like this: Drink at least 2 litres a day for maximum well-being. [Extracted from Crystal Prescriptions and Earth Blessings]

Transform crystal energy into a potent essence for healing and well-being [caption id="attachment_4040" align="alignleft" width="300"] Tumbled crystals are ideal for making crystal essencesPhoto c. Jeni Campbell www.angeladditions.co.uk[/caption] Crystal essences are an excellent way to use the healing power of crystals, and several crystals can be combined provided you dowse to check compatibility. Crystal essences are made by transferring the subtle vibrational energies and minute concentrations of the mineral constituents of the crystal into water, which then stores the vibrations and transfers them to the chakras, physical or subtle bodies in exactly the same way that a homoeopathic essence works. The essence is bottled and a preservative – brandy, vodka or cider vinegar – added. If the essence is to be taken by those for whom alcohol is inappropriate, cider vinegar can be used as a preservative or the essence rubbed on the skin. The essence can be gently rubbed on the skin or over a chakra. Essences can also be added to a glass of water and sipped, or taken from a dropper bottle, or sprayed around the aura. Caution: Some stones contain trace minerals that are toxic (see the list on www.judyhall.co.uk) and essences from these stones, and especially from lead-based crystals such as Galena or Stibnite, need to be made by an indirect method that transfers the vibrations without transferring any of the toxic material from the stone. If in doubt, make the essence by the indirect method, which is also suitable for fragile or layered stones. Always wash your hands after handling one of these stones and use in a tumbled version wherever possible. [caption id="attachment_4038" align="alignright" width="300"] Essences from toxic stones such as raw Tantalite should always be made by the indirect method.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4036" align="alignright" width="300"] Fragile or layered crystals should also be made into an essence using the indirect method. Rainbow Mayanite, c. Jeni Campbell, www.angeladditions.co.uk[/caption] MAKING A CRYSTAL ESSENCE You will need: An appropriate crystal, which has been cleansed and purified either by placing under running water, in brown rice, or using a proprietary cleanser such as Petaltone Clear2Light. One or two clean glass bowls, Spring water A suitable bottle in which to keep the essence (coloured glass is preferable to clear as it preserves the vibrations better). Essences can be made by the direct or indirect method. The indirect method is suitable for friable, layered or clustered crystals as well as those that may have a degree of toxicity. Spring water should be used rather than tap water that has chlorine, fluoride and aluminium added to it. Water from a spring with healing properties is particularly effective. Direct method Place enough spring water in a glass bowl to just cover the crystal. Stand the bowl in sunlight for several hours. (If the bowl is left outside, cover with a glass lid or clingfilm to prevent insects falling into it.) If appropriate, the bowl can also be left overnight in moonlight. [caption id="attachment_4037" align="alignright" width="300"] The indirect method[/caption] Indirect method If the crystal is toxic or fragile (see contra-indications page xx) place the crystal in a small glass bowl and stand the bowl within a large bowl that has sufficient spring water to raise the level above the crystal in the inner bowl. Stand the bowl in sunlight for several hours. (If the bowl is left outside, cover with a glass lid or clingfilm.) If appropriate, the bowl can also be left overnight in moonlight. Bottling and preserving If the essence is not to be used within a day or two, top up with two-thirds brandy, vodka, white rum or cider vinegar to one-third essence, otherwise the essence will become musty. This makes a ‘mother tincture’ that can be further diluted. To make a small dosage bottle, add seven drops of the mother essence to a dosage bottle containing two-thirds brandy and one-third water. If a spray bottle is being made, add seven drops of mother essence to pure water if using immediately. For prolonged use, vodka or white rum makes a useful preservative as it has no smell. Using a crystal essence For short-term use, an essence can be sipped every few minutes. For longer term use, apply 2 or 3 times a day. Essences can also be applied to the skin, either at the wrist or over the site of a chakra or problem spot, or added to bath water. If a spray bottle is made, spray all around the aura and at the site of particular chakras remembering that these can extend for several feet out from the physical body or room. This is particularly effective for clearing negative energies. Making Shungite water [caption id="attachment_4035" align="alignright" width="300"] Elite or Noble Shungite c.

Further assistance should be sought from a suitably qualified crystal healing practitioner. Healing can be defined as bringing the body, emotions, mind and spirit back into balance. It does not imply a cure. The water stores the vibrations and transfers them to the chakras, physical or subtle bodies in exactly the same way that a homoeopathic essence works. You can combine several crystals provided you check compatibility – finger or pendulum dowsing is the best way to do this. Spring water should be used rather than tap water that has chlorine, fluoride and aluminium added to it. (Water from a spring with healing properties is particularly effective but do check the purity of the water before use as springs can get contaminated by ground water and other contaminants.) The essence is bottled and a preservative – brandy, vodka or cider vinegar – added. If the essence is to be taken by those for whom alcohol is inappropriate, cider vinegar can be used as a preservative or the essence rubbed on the skin. Making a crystal essence You will need: appropriate crystal, which has been cleansed and purified, one or two clean glass bowls, spring water a suitable bottle in which to keep the essence - coloured glass is preferable to clear as it preserves the vibrations better. Spring water Brandy or other preservative Direct method Place enough spring water in a glass bowl to just cover the crystal. Stand the bowl in sunlight for several hours.

If a spray bottle is being made, add seven drops of mother essence to pure water if using immediately. For prolonged use, vodka or white rum makes a useful preservative as it has no smell. Using the essence An essence can be gently rubbed on the skin over a chakra or organ, or be dripped onto a crystal placed on a crystal or photograph. Essences can also be added to a glass of water and sipped, or taken from a dropper bottle, or spritzed around the aura. For short-term use, an essence can be sipped every few minutes, rubbed on the appropriate chakra, or placed on a crystal. Hold the water in your mouth for a few moments if taking orally. For longer term use, take three times a day. Essences can also be applied to the skin, either at the wrist or over the site of a problem, or added to bath water. If a spray bottle is made, add 7 drops of the essence to spring water and spritz  around the aura (front and back), over a grid or appropriate chakras, remembering that these may extend for several feet out from the physical body.
