Welcome to Crystal Dragon Rumblings.

I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Christmas and New Year, regardless of your beliefs. It is a very big time for us here in Australia, as we take our annual holidays at this time of year. And sorry to all those in the northern hemisphere but the weather here is beautiful, lots of sunshine and wonderful days. That being said I am taking a break, whether it is well earned or not is to be debated, but I am getting very fuzzy headed at the moment and need the rest. By the way if anybody sees a head floating around, it's probably mine, everyone is asking where my head is lately. There will be no edition of Crystal Dragon Rumblings for January, but just wait till you get February's. We have had a busy time just lately my son and his partner have just moved into their new home and my daughter and her partner have put their house on the market, so we have been busy renovating. We will all be getting together for Christmas. Won't be able to do a thing for days after all the food we consume. Anyway remember to smile at everyone you meet, just to pass some joy along.

Here you will find information about crystals and how you can use them in your everyday lives.

The articles will be a little different than what you are normally used to. I like to present my information as if I were in the room talking to you.
So it may not be as technical or as structured as you would normally find.

I have found that my students seem to retain what they have learned, when I use this approach, they say it makes the classes fun, and to be honest,
I couldn't do it any other way, it's really just the way I am.

I hope that you will enjoy my style and stay around with us for a while.

I will be having guest writers, who will add their own unique and expert advice.

This Months guest writer is Amerindea and once again she has provided us with an excellent and thought provoking article.

You know that surprise I said was coming well it will be here very soon. When it comes I would really appreciate your feedback on what you think.

As I know a lot of my readers are interested in starting their own websites or just improving on them, I will from time to time include some articles about, internet marketing, website design and anything of interest that I may come across.

Crystal grids can be used for a number of reasons. You can use grids to send distant healing to people,places and things, to rejuvenate the environment, whether through natural or man made disasters. For personal protection for yourself or others, to protect your home and personal property.

Grids are useful because the energy keeps on working without you physically having to be there, so that if someone or something need constant energy then you can use a grid to achieve this.

The first thing you need to do is decide what crystals will be approprate for the grid. You will then need to choose,cleanse and program the crystals for the task required.

It is very important to make the reason clear so that the crystals will know what is required of them. If you use Reiki you can place your symbols inside the crystals to help in the work.

There are several ways in which grids can be used.

This is the simplest grid and some will say it is not technically a grid but it has the same effect.

Take a photo of the person that you wish to send continuous healing to, if you do not have a photo then write their name on a piece of paper. Hold the crystal that you have chosen in your hand with the photo and concentrate the intent of your actions. Ask that healing be sent to that person for a specific time peroid or as long as is necessary. Then place the photo or name in a safe place with the crystal on top.

To grid an outside area for the purpose of protection or to help the environment heal just follow these guidelines (remember they are suggestions only if you feel the need to do something different, then by all means go ahead.) Choose the crystals that you wish to use, cleanse them and then program them for the task ahead.

Bury them in the ground in the following formation(guide only) One in each of the four corners of the area. One in each direction, North,South,East and West. I then go the each corner and imagine a line to the next corner, I go approximately half way along and place another crystal there. If it is possible I try to place one last crystal in the very center of the grid. I then stand in the center and close my eyes and concentrate on the reason for the grid asking that the crystals continue sending energy until either the damage is repaired or until they have done all that they can do. If it is for protection I ask that the protection go on as long as it is needed.

You can modify this grid by just placing four crystals around the outside area. It works just as well, although I like to use the above method for healing environmental damage. Again go with what you feel remember last months article about following your intuition.

You can set up a crystal grid that you can add to constantly and remove things from once the need for them to be in the grid is over. This grid is more effective than single crystal use and can send healing to many people and situations at the same time.I use this grid all the time.

You need to choose eight crystals for this grid. You will need six crystals for the outside of the grid. One for the center of the grid which can be a single or double terminated crystal, crystal pyramid, crystal ball or a crystal cluster. The master crystal needs to be longer like a laser crystal. Quartz crystals are usually used for this type of grid, but I have substituted others on a number of occassions, depending on the need.

Once you have chosen and programed your crystals you will need to arrange them in the following manner.

Take the six crystals that you have chosen for the outside and place them in a hexagram of about eight to twelve inches across with the points towards the center. Place the central crystal in the middle if it has a point place that point at an angle between two of the outer crystals not at the crystals themselves. The master crystal is placed outside the grid and off to the side.

Now take a picture or whatever you have chosen to place in the grid and place them under the central crystal. It is a good idea to have your grid in a box or on a stiff piece of cardboard so that you can move it around, Also you can use blue tack to hold the outer crystals in place, or anything that will not adhere them permenantly to the box or paper, This allows you to change the crystals at anytime. This type of grid needs to be charged everyday. And the crystals will need to be cleansed from time to time.

To charge your crystal grid all you need do is take the master crystal, hold it in you hand and state your intentions for the grid. Next point the master crystal at the central crystal and begin moving it out to one of the outer crystals, then move it to the crystal on the right hand side, move the master crystal back to the central crystal and back out to the same crystal once again move the master crystal to the next crystal on the right hand side and then back to the central crystal repeat this process until you feel that the grid has been charged enough. Until you feel comfortable with this method you can move around the grid about six to eight times, this should be enough to charge your grid. If you like while you are moving the master crystal around the grid you could say something like "I charge this grid with light to heal, to heal, to heal" or "I charge this grid with love to heal, to heal, to heal" or you could just make up your own affirmation if you would like. Charging your grid everyday and using an affirmation is almost like meditating, I sometimes find myself drifting away while I am performing this task.

You can also place your goals and anything that you would like to send crystal energy to into the grid. If you are going away some people say that you should take a picture of your grid with you and charge it everyday. Me I just tell the crystals that I will be away for however long and ask them would the mind sending the energy until I return. Works for me.

This grid is the same as the one used to send Reiki distant healing but with the symbols also placed into the crystals. For anyone interested in this method I will be placing instructions for this on my site in January and also a picture of the grid for anyone unsure of how to set up the grid. But do not worry if your grid placement is right or not, whatever you do will work well remember it is always the intention that is the most important part of healing work.

How to use Protection Gemstones

Your best shield against negative influence in your life is your own attuned state with life.

Gemstones emit vibrations that can help you to become more attuned to those things that will make up a safe, secure environment.

Types of Protection

If one needs protection, the obvious question is "From What?" The need for protection assumes that there is some negative influence that has the capability to bring harm to your home, family, business, personal sense of security, happiness or quality of life. Identifying sources of harm or negative influences is an important step toward achieving a sense of security and protection.

Guarding against your inner negativity

Some people need to be protected from inner negativity. They need to be protected from themselves. These people are their own worst enemy by nurturing fear or greed or other undesirable characteristics that create a feeling of insecurity and vulnerability. For example, a man who is dishonest in his business dealings with others will distrust people and feel that he needs protection from being cheated by others. This person needs protection from his own fear and dishonesty. He needs to become more attuned to a higher ethical standard in order to be truly safe.

A person who is fearful of losing love may feel that he needs protection from being hurt by others. This can manifest itself as jealousy, or being overly possessive, or resisting any serious relationship. This person is not attuned to the other person, since their main focus is on themselves - whether they will be hurt - rather than on the person they love and what they can offer that person in the way of increased happiness. Their priorities are upside down - and such a person needs protection from their own harmful obsession with their own emotions.

They would enjoy heightened security by giving less importance to themselves and more to the people around them. As long as your attention is on YOU instead of your environment and the people in it, you are leaving yourself open to attack. This person should become more attuned to loving another as opposed to being loved.

Harm from exterior influences

There are sometimes real outside influences that mean to do us harm. Identifying people or ideas or groups who pose a threat to our happiness is vital in order to guard oneself. In this case, one would become more attuned to oneself - and notice if a particular person or environment leaves one feeling less cheerful or even 'down'. I once worked at a job where the majority of people were mostly unhappy in their jobs. The CEO was unpredictable - threatening and dissatisfied one day and overly generous and kind the next. It kept the whole office in a state of fear. One never knew if they would have their job from one day to the next.

There was little that I could do about this situation besides leave the company (which was not realistic at the time). But I believed that I deserved security and should protect myself in some way...

A large fluorite ball on my desk did the trick to shield me from the generally disgruntled atmosphere where I worked. Fluorite makes a wonderful 'mental vacuum cleaner' - it clears the atmosphere of cluttered, confused thoughts and random negativity from varied sources. It assists in making subtle discriminations regarding the kinds of energies and people that you allow to enter your world. Though fluorite is not generally considered a protection stone, I used it effectively to guard against undesirable elements.

Often an employee (including the crazy CEO) would arrive in my office asking if they could just sit there for a minute to 'get away' from everything. My office was a little island of peace within a confused and fearful work place.

Protection from being hurt (by a lover, friend or associate):

A rhodonite sphere or stone brings reconciliation where two people have been hurting each other for a long time. It heals old wounds and scars and is sometimes called the "rescue stone". It helps to recover your unique gifts and opens your awareness to using these for the benefit of others. Classically considered a love stone, rhodonite has energy that is 'outward' focused, or the giving of love, rather than love flowing towards you (such as rose quartz or rhodochrosite).

If you feel weak...

Weakness can leave one open to attacks. When we feel weak, we are vulnerable, and the source of this is a reduction of our life force caused by a lack of self esteem, or being overwhelmed by people or situations around us. Rhyolite fortifies your natural resistance. It will bring about an increased awareness of your own inner strength. Jasper is an excellent stone to enhance endurance and stamina. If you are working long and hard and feel you are being drained, and therefore at risk - jasper is a very effective protection stone.

When you feel the world is out to get you...

If you get fearful watching the news, or feel anxious about the state of the world in general, you are probably out of harmony with yourself and your environment. Being out of harmony can leave you feeling unsafe. Things are out of balance when you see only the dangerous side of life. Because the truth is, there is much to be grateful for, and much beauty all around you.

Amazonite is the supreme harmony stone, both within oneself and with other people. It facilitates your ability to see multiple points of view on any situation. It allows you to find and know your inner truth - this in turn opens the door to finding a harmony and balance in your attunement to good and evil.

Another important balancing stone is moss agate. This stone has strong grounding energies that help you to stabilize and focus on constructive actions. It is an excellent stone for anyone recovering from an addiction as it offers protection from unstable states of mind (such as loss of self control).

Know your gemstones

Get to know your gemstones and their various properties. Of course there are stones that are clearly protective - agate, jade, jaspers of all types, onyx, all the obsidians, turquoise, tiger eye. But you can get creative with using gemstones for protection by identifying the particular type of protection that you need and then finding a stone with the energy to combat a specific type of threat.

Q. Sometime ago I was asked if Amethyst that had been heat treated to change it to citrine worked exactly the same as natural citrine.   

A. My reply was that I had only worked with natural citrine or so I thought. And I believed that they would have the same properites regardless.I have just found out that one of my pieces had been heat treated amethyst. Well in the light of this information I can say that I found absolutely no difference in the healing abilities of any of my pieces of citrine. They all heal the same conditions and clean all my crystals exactly the same. For all intention purposes for me at least there is no difference at all. I will continue to use all the piece of my citrine as I have in the past and will not differentiate between the natural citrine and the heat treated amethyst(citrine). Again this is a personal choice and everyone must make up their own mind on this issue, I can only tell you of my personal experiences and feelings. I hope that this helps anyone unsure about this issue.
