There are those days when everything becomes crystal clear. Can you achieve clarity because you hold this rock or that stone? Do rocks in your pockets resolve your life challenges? Nope – you won’t hear me, the author of multiple books on gemstones, tell you that holding a rock is going to resolve all life’s issues.
I will say, though, that you can make it your intention to gain clarity, understanding and a greater perspective to laser in on how to achieve your goals and intentions through the use of a crystal, a mineral or a rock. It is not the gemstone that brings on the clarity. It is your intention. Use clear quartz, for example, to see a situation clearly. Keep a cluster or a large generator point on your desk. Set an intention that every time you catch a glimpse of the stone, mindfully or unconsciously, it will trigger a part of your consciousness so it remembers that you are gaining clarity in your life and various life challenges.
Clear quartz reflects the full spectrum of light. In essence, it has all the colors of the rainbow and is known for its ability to help one tune into various frequencies and vibrations. Yes . . . perhaps that sounds a bit wild, but even our first radios contained clear quartz crystal to assure that the radio would tune in to the channel and pick up the transmission clearly. Translate that into seeing yourself as a radio that transmits and receives transmissions. Use your clear quartz to assure that you are receiving clear messages and be mindful of your thoughts because those thoughts are broadcasts.
Every gemstone cluster is entirely unique. Clear quartz and all types of gemstone clusters grow within the veins of mountains throughout the world. Clusters are a family of points that share a common matrix. The cluster, therefore, represents happy community connections, starting first with a happy family life and learning how to share common ground while each individual point/person is unique within itself. Use a gemstone cluster to help focus your attention on community and global connection. The cluster is a reminder of the interconnectedness of all life on this planet and beyond. Use clusters when setting intentions that will have wide-reaching effects.
Use clear quartz for any and all spiritual pursuits; including meditation, connecting with your guardian angel, channeling, higher knowledge and wisdom, shamanic journeywork, spiritual-healing modalities, and energy work. Clear quartz assists when aligning with Archangels Haniel, Michael, and Sandalphon. This stone is easily programmable by just holding the quartz and thinking of the thought, words, or action that is desired to infuse it into the crystal. Always program the stone with love and well-being, and all will work out for the highest good.
Clear quartz helps you get clear on the real source of your emotional upset. Pay attention to your feelings and emotions while holding clear quartz as it amplifies whatever you are focused on. Be sure to intend that working with the clear quartz will help you uncover whatever you need to realize or understand to relieve your emotional upset. Clarity and understanding often alleviates disturbing feelings.
