Hi everyone, Beth here! How goes life? It’s been a crazy August, especially with the heat, crazy hot! Windy, too. Though the nights have been kind and it feels like fall is on its way. Now, let’s talk about a crystal: Clear Quartz! Look at the picture below, here are some from my Clear Quartz crystal collection:
"From ancient times to the present day, quartz crystals have been a source of Light to mankind. Highly valued by spiritual leaders and healers as well as scientists, the unique attributes of quartz have played a key role in mankind's evolutionary development."
(Baer, R, "Windows of Light" preface)
Clear Quartz, throughout our history it has been valued by nearly every civilization as far back as the ancient Egyptians, Aztecs, and Romans. Even Atlantis and Lemuria, where the sun's power was believed to be harnessed through a crystal as a source of energy by solar use. They, along with Native American Indians, African tribes, Scots and countless other cultures used Clear Quartz in diagnostic healing, meditation and spiritual development. As well as being used as religious objects and magical enchantments. One more thing, quartz crystals are also known for their ability to bring clarity of mind and to enhance intention.
Pretty neat information, so far, huh? Now, entrainment. What is it? Well, if you were to look it up in a dictionary (Entrain: Definition of Entrain by Merriam-Webster):
to draw along with or after oneself.
to draw in and transport (something, such as solid particles or gas) by the flow of a fluid.
to incorporate (air bubbles) into concrete.
to determine or modify the phase or period of circadian rhythms entrained by a light cycle.
Here for entrainment, it is the process by which brain waves align. Brain waves are basically energy patterns. Simple as that. Like, for example, telepathy and it is possible. When two people are connecting, easily and effortlessly, their brain waves become entrained. What does that have to do with a crystal? Well, Clear Quartz crystals are programmable and this is one of the reasons why quartz are used in computers. The crystals can be programmed, cleared, and reprogrammed with intention made by you.
Now, assuming you have a Clear Quartz crystal and a partner to work with (even your cat or dog, if you don’t have a person), prior to using your it for and exercise it is important to clear your crystal of any previous intentions. We want to use the pure potential and qualities of the quartz and one of them is the ability to stimulate entrainment between the two beings.
As mentioned before, the crystal should be clear and it ought to have been cleared - meaning you soaked it in salt water, smudged it, used a singing bowl (see picture below) or buried it in earth for a bit to remove any negative energies or previous intentions held in the stone. There are specific clearing methods and ensure the clearing methods are compatible with your crystals or stones.
Ready? Hold your crystal - I like to use the double terminated Clear Quartz (seen in my first picture above), but any clear quartz will do. Sit with the person or animal you would like to entrain with. Ensure your partner is feeling mutual and aware of this exercise taking action. Take a few deep breaths and become aware of the stone in your hands and feel the vibration of it - as much as possible.
Take your attention to the space in which the two of you are sitting and see or feel if you can become aware of your combined fields and how they are intermingling. It is in this field that the quartz is being activated, feel the vibration and frequency of the stone that is now superimposed over the two of you. Allow a few minutes for the stone to “work its magic” and bring your mutual fields together.
Be observant and test the field over and over until you notice the entrainment taking place. You can do this by asking certain questions you have in your mind and see how your partner responds.
Try to hold your question, action or thought consistently. You may notice some responses or similarities in thoughts. It takes practice and time. With the quartz, it helps in combining your fields to bring both brings into vibrational harmony, in which brain waves match for better communication.
And that’s it! Whew! Great exercise to do. Tell me about your experience and how it went. Don’t feel bad if you do not experience much or as expected, it may mean to try again when the timing is right.
What about you, any crystal or stone exercise you know of or would like to know more about? Thanks for reading my blog, more to come!
