Q: Judy,

Thank you for answering these questions…

What does it mean when a crystal breaks after a healing, or while you are simply holding it and what should one do with the broken halves?

Why do crystals change, i.e. (new windows, rainbows, inclusions, etc. and have you noticed a lot of them changing rapidly in the last year?

Why would a crystal “lose it’s color”, besides being left in the sun.

I appreciate you.

Crystal blessings,

Angela

Q: What does it mean when a crystal breaks after a healing, or while you are simply holding it and what should one do with the broken halves?

That rather depends. It is a release of energy, facilitating a letting go. Of links or pressure from the past. Sometimes a crystal simply cannot absorb any more toxic energy and shatters. At other times it is ‘creating offspring’, bringing new beings into the world by separating. The first thing to do is thoroughly cleanse the pieces with a cleanser such as Petaltone Clear2Light or Z14. Then put it out in the sun to recharge. If the piece broke because it simply couldn’t handle any more energy or because it was breaking ties, it may need to be put into the ground (mark the spot) or placed on a large crystal to recover. If it broke into two to create new beings, it may be that keeping one piece for yourself and handing the other to the person for whom the healing was taking place, or with whom you wish to communicate or connect in some way. You could, of course, simply glue the pieces back together if they feel as if they slip naturally into place.

This one was glued back together and you’d never know there was a join.

Q: Why do crystals change, i.e. (new windows, rainbows, inclusions, etc. and have you noticed a lot of them changing rapidly in the last year?

Yes, a lot of crystals are morphing into something ‘other’, taking on more energy, shifting their vibrations, moving up a notch. The Celtic Quartz from the crystal mountain is a good example. Pieces I’ve had awhile are taking on an Anandalite or Rainbow Mayanite irridescence, and rainbows are becoming much more frequent in other crystals.  I believe it’s all to do with the expansion of consciousness that’s taking place. The crystals are taking on the energy first and then passing it on to us – if we’ll accept it.

Q: Why would a crystal “lose it’s color”, besides being left in the sun.

Exhaustion! Although it may not regain its colour completely, a bit of TLC will work wonders.This often happens when a crystal has been working hard but has been neglected and not cleansed and recharged on a regular basis. Crystals fade, or go ‘murky’ when full of negative energy and drained of power. It might need to go back into the earth for a spell, or be placed on an energetic crystal bed or inside a geode – use your intuition to listen to what it wants to do.

 

Q: Dear Judy, I was very drawn to the  amethyst aura quartz that were posted on the Member Community Facebook page so I ordered one and it’s beautiful, but I have a problem.  I feel very dizzy when I hold it. I washed it and left it in the sunlight for a few hours but I’m still experiencing the same effect. I was thinking it would help with my work, which is mostly writing, and also seeing myself a bit deeper than I do, but I don’t seem to be able to hold it. What can I do?

Judy Hall: A. Oooh that’s so interesting about the Amethyst Aura. It does open the highest of the chakras, so dizzyness is not suprising. Its a common response to any high vibration crystal. You may need to put down a grounding cord (instructions on the website) and sit for awhile, breathing and pushing the energy down and out through your feet into the centre of the earth while it clears and stabilises your chakras. Flint between your feet or in your pocket is helpful. Or go for a walk on the beach and sit on a rock. It will get to the point where you can hold it above your head and feel everything opening up – but remember to close it down when you’ve stopped writing or whatever you’re doing (like lily petals). Good luck with the writing!
