What is the function of quartz crystals in meditation ?
Quartz crystals are amplifiers of the energies of consciousness. The energy taken in from meditative visualizations causes a raising of the vibrational rate of the body and an upliftment of consciousness to higher frequency levels.
Meditative techniques which employ the use of visualization allow one to utilize natural right-hemispheric abilitiesto link more directly with the quartz crystal.
HOW TO MEDITATE WITH A CRYSTAL
Find a comfortable place ; your temple room if you have one. Place the crystal with which you have chosen to meditate upon your altar or upon a small table where you can sit and see it at eye level. You may wish to light a candle and have some incense burning. I also love to have a vase of flowers and a small bowl of water on my altar to represent the four elements.
Looking steadily at your crystal, begin your yogic breathing or just breathe deeply and evenly and keep this up for at least 5 minutes. You can move if you need to.
Allow all tension and care to fall away and relax totally. Allow yourself to blink, there is absolutely no need to force yourself to something that is not natural and is also uncomfortable. In short to meditate your must be totally relaxed, so also watch your sitting position ; kneeling is only good if you are comfortable in this pose and your knees are cushioned. A straight spine is what is required for the energy to flow freely from the spiritual realms through your chakras, without blockage or causing you to be uncomfortable and therefore keep shifting position. To many of you this will be obvious, but it needs to be mentioned to those of you who have not tried this exercise before, as it could spoil your concentration.
Place your hands round the crystal and breathe out. On all the out-breaths allow your tension to flow through you and into the crystal; the crystal will transmute the negativity for you. On your in-breaths draw in through your hands the peace that is within your crystal’s energy. Allow yourself as much time as is necessary to achieve a feeling of peace and harmony before you move on.
Next, just open up and allow yourself to feel the energy of your crystal; ask your crystal to show itself to you and listen with your heart, feel with your heart. Draw the energy in an effortless manner through your hands and into your heart. You may feel instantly at peace. It may take longer; it depends on each individual as this is a totally individual experience. You may ask your crystal to pass to you any guidance it has for you. Keep yourself open and watch all that is happening. Remember anything that comes into your mind. Watch for any colour you may be given; any name or names given or any ideas planted in your mind. If you have asked a specific question, ask it again in a short but clear way and listen
for your answer.
When you feel you have experienced all there is to at this session, thank the deva of the crystal and thank your guides also. Take your hands from the crystal and sit back. Now is a good time to write u the session in your diary before it becomes a blur. It is good to keep a diary especially for your work and exercises with your crystals, and keep it up to date for you to compare and to look back on your progress. Things can become easily forgotten and you do not wish to lose any knowledge or any message or answers to your questions.
Have a cup of tea and a biscuit to make sure you are properly grounded and back in the physical realm; this is very important.
To start with I suggest you get to know and use one particular crystal. You may come to know and love one in particular for this work and this is really good. You may also wish then to experiment with other crystals and learn about them and note the differences.
At the end of the day you will find and use just one of these crystals as your own special meditation crystal which is exclusive to you and this work. After working and experimenting with many I have a special love for one crystal that is my special and exclusive tool for this type of working, and I hope that on this wonderful journey, you also will tune in to yours.
Remember, when you work with crystals that time and space is not relevant. Be in the moment; breathe in the moment and enjoy the time you have set aside in your life for this very rewarding exercise.
I wish you joy on your inward journey of light.
Special Note: A new moon or a full moon is a good time for this type of working.
Meditation & Enlightenment with Quartz Crystals

"What is meditation and how does enlightenment happen ? "you might ask...
According to Dr. Richard Gerber, another more powerful form of inner communication with the Higher Self is meditation. Meditation clears the mind of conscious thought programs to allow higher vibrational sources of information to enter into the biocomputer for processing and analysis. In addition to allowing access to the Higher Self, the process of meditation causes gradual changes in the subtle-energy anatomy of the human being over a long period of time. Specifically, the chakras are slowly activated and cleared, and the kundalini energies within the root chakra eventually make their climb up the subtle pathways within the spinal cord to reach the crown chakra.
The real reason to meditate is to achieve enlightenment. Enlightenment might be defined here as a more cosmic or energetic perspective of the structures of consciousness, a feeling of unity with all lifeforms, and an understanding of the spiritual workings behind physical reality. This higher level of perception will ultimately allow the individual to comprehend the meaning of his or her life in relationship to others and to the universe in general. This is what is referred to as a more cosmic perspective. Meditation may ultimately allow humans to come into closer relationship and greater comprehension of God the Creator.
In human beings the process of enlightenment is intimately tied to the proper alignment and normal functioning of the major chakras of the body. When all of the major chakras are open and active and when there is adequate etheric vitality in the body, the human being begins to function at optimal levels of health and higher consciousness. Meditation merely amplifies this gradual process of awakening. It accelerates the opening of the chakras and their alignment with the physical and subtle bodies in special ways that devotion and prayer alone do not achieve as quickly and directly.
According to Dr. Richard Gerber's Vibrational Medicine book, wherein he stated, An individual's ability to connect with his or her Higher Self is partly a function of specialized energy links within the crystalline network of the physical body. This crystalline network helps to coordinate the energetic structures of the higher subtle bodies with the consciousness of the physical personality. Gurudas brings out new and important information that may explain certain aspects of right-hemispheric functioning and psi abilities. Psychic abilities are mediated by special biocrystalline and energetic pathways through which the Higher Self may interact with the consciousness of the physical personality. One particular crystalline structure that is important to our psychic receptivity is the pineal gland and, more specifically, the pineal calcification: a crystal that lies in the center of the brain.
The pineal gland in esoteric literature has long been associated with the third eye. Our early biological ancestors actually had a rudimentary but functional third eye, complete with lens, as exists today within the tuatara (a lizard found in the southern hemisphere). The pineal gland is associated with the phenomenon of light from a variety of different biological and energetic perspectives. This esoteric association of the pineal with the third eye in humans stems from the pineal gland's link with the third eye (or brow) chakra. The pineal gland is linked to the chakra system by way of a special energetic circuit which has developed in human beings over the course of time. The function of this specialized energy system is uniquely involved with raising the energies of the personality toward a higher, more spiritual level of consciousness. In addition, this same energy system is responsible for awakening an individual's full creative and evolutionary potential.
According to the channeled material by Kevin Ryerson from his book Flower Essences and Vibrational Healing, the kundalini activation process utilizes the crystalline circuitry of the body, especially the pineal gland, as well as a special resonant energy reflex arc extending from the coccygeal region to the brain stem. Although energy flow through this pathway is primarily involved with the ascension of the kundalini, it appears that this circuit also functions on a more day-to-day basis to allow us to communicate with our Higher Self.
The pineal gland is a crystalline structure that receives information from the soul and subtle bodies, particulary the astral body. The subtle bodies often act as filters for teachings from the soul and Higher Self. From the pineal gland information travels to the right portion of the brain. If there is need to alert the conscious mind to this higher information, it passes through the right brain in the form of dreams. Then the left brain analyzes it to see if the information can be grasped. This often occurs with clear dreams that offer messages. From the left brain information travels through the neurological system, specifically passing through two critical reflex points - the medulla oblongata and the coccyx. There is a constant state of resonancy along the spinal column between the medulla oblongata and coccyx; properties of the pineal gland resonate between these two points. Then the information travels to other parts of the body through the meridians and crystalline structures already described. The life force of vibrational remedies activates this entire procedure. This is a key process the soul uses to manifest karma in the physical body. The crystalline circuitry herein described actually contributes to the physiological basis for the kundalini process. Additionally, this circuit permits the step-down transduction of information from the Higher Self to various levels of awareness experienced by the physical personality. It is most interesting that the right cerebral hemisphere, working in concert with the pineal, acts as a primary relay point for information moving from the Higher Self to the waking personality.
