SHAPED and CARVED CRYSTALS and Stones
From ancient times crystal has been carved and shaped into objects of beauty , practical implements and tools of mystical power. Today crystal is still worked and polished into many different forms many are mostly decorative but others can be used in crystal healing.
We look here at some of the more commonly carved forms. There also are or will be seperate articles on wands and other crystal healing tools.
These shapes also may occur naturaly in stones and the meanings and practical applications for these shapes are basicly the same for both carved and natural stones. Many people feel that naturaly shaped stones have more "medicine" than carved shaped stones.
Crystal spheres /balls are often used in scrying, They are used in healing and in room and area clearing and protection and for virtually any purpose. They radiate the properties of the material from which they are made or the programs they are given evenly in all directions. A sphere represents completion, and the realization of all possible things . It has no
beginning or end. Spheres represent the achievement of wholeness and revealing of the inner beauty and perfection of our spirit. Spheres help us stay centered in the present. They make excellent altar pieces and can be the focus of many meditations.
Egg shaped stones are easy to hold and can be used in massage they are said to assist with stress reduction
I am leaving some of the more unusual uses for eggs to the adult imagination but the egg symbolizes fertility, a fertilized egg eventually becomes a living being. The egg shape symbolizes the potential and developmental stage of our goals and dreams.
The egg also symbolizes the void, the unknown and unformed from which form and realization are born.
Meditate, holding an egg shaped stone of an appropriate material in your hand (or have it set
before you at eye level ) on any condition or situation which you would like to transform or bring into reality.
You can meditate on an egg to help you develop clarity about what you wish to manifest in your life particularly in spiritual evolution.You can also ask/program your egg to assist in manifesting the results you have visualized.
Some people meditate while they sit on an egg shaped stone or crystal so that it puts pressure between the genitals and excretory organ this is said to connect the upward and downward flow of your natural chi and assist in spiritualizing your being.
Eggs can also be used in grids or for programs to support fertility childbearing and nurturing of all kinds.
Another meditation visualization involving eggs is to imagine yourself inside an egg of light. This is a powerful protective visualization. You can imagine yourself inside an egg and to imagine yourself hatching. This can help you in identifying both areas where you are blocking your self and help you release those blockages and restraints and reach more personal/ spiritual freedom. Egg shaped stones are often used in massage and energy healing work because of the soft dispersion of energies.
One of the functions of a pyramid is to draw spiritual energy through the point and to ground it at the base. It helps to blend spiritual and physical energies. Thus, it can be very effective in dissolving mental and emotional blockages. It can help with grounding and can help reveal personal subconscious mysteries to the conscious self.
It can be used for integrating and harmonizing aspects of your personality subconscious and spirit. they create large energy fields around themselves and are therefore useful for energizing large rooms and spaces.
Are said to generate an energy field similar to the human aura They can create a powerful
focus and have a balancing effect on the chakras and subtle bodies .
Crystal skulls are record keepers. They amplify energy. They develop holograms in them from their experiences. There are old crystal skulls that exist in the physical. Many skulls are made from very old crystal possibly 10,000 years old, and are
very powerful. Some seem to be encoded with messages. They have picked up many frequencies through their time here. Some ancient skulls are well known for energizing people and allowing them to access visions and information .
Contemporary crystal skulls are sometimes used for scrying and meditation.
One of the most common carved forms for rocks and gemstones is the heart shape. This shape is a symbol of love and is often exchanged as a gift of love and affection. The stone hearts are available in many stones and can be used for many kinfds of crystal healing. They are often part of love, romance and healing grids . Hearts are widely available and can be used in general healing layouts and for chakra work too.
Donuts Also very common carved shape. In metaphysics, it's a halo—sign of divine dimension and intention.
I have begun an attempt to understand the metaphysics of this form but so far it is very compicated about inverse tetrhedrons and the shape of the universe and manifesting the divine from the void . I'll need to study more.
Many crystals and stones are carved into animal and images such as angels and Gods/esses which can be used for meditation and to help you connect with a totem or power animal .
there are also traditional associations for many naturaly shaped stone forms.On Size CRYSTAL HEALING
