Having realised that the crystals I had bought as phantom red quartz were, indeed, Strawberry Lemurian seeds, I decided to have a play and investigate. Although I had recently seen a lovely example of one I hadn’t been the guardian of any before so was curious to explore the energies for myself and to see how they would work with me. A grid was suggested, but when I looked at them, I was drawn to pick two up, and I intuitively picked them, taking one in each hand. Sitting back down at my desk and holding them, I immediately started to have kriyas, involuntary muscle and body twitches, which for me, indicate energy shifts. I found myself leaning forward with my elbows on the desk, putting my hands, holding the crystals, against the side of my temples. The twitches and shifts of energies continued and they made me laugh, and laughing had made me realise that my energy had lightened considerably. I felt amused and quite joyous. I continued to hold the Strawberry Lemurians in my hands to the sides of my head for a minute or two and then took them away. Again, during this, I felt an amused chuckle escape from my heart chakra.
After a while, I kept the crystals in my hand and searched for information on them on the web. I recalled Judy Hall had written something on them in a blog but couldn’t recall the information. Having found her blog http://www.judyhall.co.uk/new-crystals/strawberry-lemurian-the-recharger I then read it and was intrigued to see that the darker crystals are more masculine energy whilst the paler ones are more feminine. Because I had selected the two I was going to work with, quickly and intuitively, I hadn’t really taken any notice of the colour, and they were still clutched in my hands, so I wondered what they were. Lo and behold, my left hand held a pale, feminine one, whilst my right hand held a very dark one with a lot of the red, hematite coating, and therefore the masculine energy.
So, I realised I had been balancing the left and right sides of my brain, my mental masculine and feminine energies. It didn’t feel right to put the crystals down and as I sat I placed them in the crease at the top of my legs. Were they working on my lower masculine and feminine energies? The kriyas now were much less frequent but it was clear the work was continuing as I carried on working myself.
The following day, I was feeling quite frustrated. Astrologically, we were in the middle of both Mars and Mercury retrograde, and I was feeling it! In particular, I was feeling Mars anger bubbling to the surface, caused by difficult communication and misunderstandings of Mercury. My usual tolerance levels seemed to have disappeared and peace and loving kindness where proving difficult to pin down! Remembering how my energy had lifted the previous day, I again used two strawberry Lemurian points, with the paler, feminine one in the left hand and the darker, masculine one in the right. I put the crystals to my temples and had a similar response to the day before, with kriyas indicating energy releases. The energy change was subtle but definite. I didn’t suddenly feel that my anger had disappeared, but I noticed a gradual lightening until I realised I was calm, happy, centred and grounded. It was as if my previous feelings had dissipated, almost as if they had never existed, as I couldn’t now see how I could have felt that way.
I used the strawberries on another occasion, when I was feeling quite emotional and this was clouding my judgement, making it difficult for me to see a way forward. This time, instead of holding the crystals to my temples, I tried tucking them behind my ears, like a handyman with his pencil. The right one slipped a few times but eventually seemed happy to stay there and, in that way I was able to leave them there for much longer than before, and carried on working, whilst they did the same. This time, it felt like they were working on many more layers, and with more chakras. The result, however, was the same, the negative feelings gradually dissipated and were replaced with a quiet but definite sense of joy, of contentment with things as they were. I was left feeling grounded and settled.
