Faeries have a energy that can be found deep within Mother Earth so it goes with out saying that these wonderful energies can be found within crystals that live in the earth, sea, rocks etc. Every time we come into close contact or touch a crystal we are able to tune into a vibration that either works with us or feels like it is not quite what we need and I will explain a bit about that. Crystal faeries will automatically tune into our own energies and they have a canny way of knowing exactly what we need in life. How often do you walk into a crystal shop and feel a gentle pull towards the crystal section, your hand may be guided towards a certain crystal which you just know is perfect for you. One sign of connecting to the right crystal will be a tingling in your palm when holding the gem.
There are so many beautiful crystals in many colours and different properties so choosing the right one for you is important after all they do cost money and you will want to start working with the fae as soon as you can. When you get home you will need to cleanse and charge your crystal so take a small bowl, add some water and a few drops of Eucalyptus oil and leave your crystal to cleanse for around half hour and then rinse before drying. You will need to be careful as some crystals don't like water such as Selenite and it's better to wet a cloth then add a drop of the oil onto the cloth and gently rub into the gem. To charge your gem you can place under the full moon's wonderful beam or place upon your faery altar as the energy there will be quite powerful.
So, now we are ready to work with the Crystal Faeries and they too are eager to work with you whether it be through magick, meditation, festival celebrations etc. I love the more unusual crystals, the ones that we don't really hear much about so these are the crystals I shall be sharing with you and how to use them to help you along your path or to overcome obstacles.
Celestial Aura Quartz
What a amazing gem this one is, the colour is such a beautiful blue and this is because a layer of Gold and Indium has been fused to the surface of the crystal. Properties include Purify, Confidence to share and teach knowledge, Trust others and To be guided along your path.
Maybe you have just begun a journey where you are teachng others and that can be daunting, having to stand up in front of a class and present your work to them. Sometimes our nerves kick in and we forget what we want to say and our minds go blank even if we are used to our knowledge just flowing from our mind and mouth. With this gem it will help you to calm yourself and to still the mind, to collect your thoughts before speaking, you will find that your knowledge will be easier to express. Also great if you have exams coming up.
With trusting others we need to let go of some issues in order to move forward and yes it can be difficult but with a little help from the fae this gem can help you release any fears and to build up confidence within yourself to learn to trust your judgements when meeting people. Sometimes it is us who lack trust in our own abilities and this can block the trust in others.
Take the gem in your hands and close your eyes, visualize the upcoming situation and ask the fae to guide you in the direction you wish to go down. Once you have said your piece to the fae take the gem with you so it is near you, it will act as a reminder when you look at it as to the way forward you have asked for.
Also known as Botswana Agate it has a milky look about it and is very pretty. Properites include Sensitivity, Being easily hurt and Loneliness.
We can often leave our hearts open to energies that do not care about our best interests or we are simply sensitives who love to help others and put many before our own needs and feelings and this can lead to hurt, sadness and feeling alone. The faeries connected to this gem can help you make a secure energy wall around you, now this isn't like putting up a wall to keep everyone out it acts as a catcher of anything negative
or anything that will take too much from your mind, your soul. It will also give you a little extra boost of positivity.
If you do feel lonely then the fae can guide you towards people who are like minded and can add some sparkle to your life, we can get into a routine that doesn't always allow us the freedom to get out and about as much as we would like so maybe you are ready to make a few changes.
After charging under the full moon place this crystal upon your altar and for as often as you feel you need to you can stand before your altar and speak openly to the fae about how you are feeling and how you can make the changes you want. Release all the negative the first time round and then start to focus on the positive and the good you want to come to you.
Of course it is down to each of us to make those first steps, to reach out and grab our future with both hands, the Crystal faeries are only there to support us and to help bring out what is already deep within us. The can't make the changes needed only we can do that but it is nice to know that you have a friend with a wonderful energy to walk the path with you, who believes in you and who wants you to be the best you can be. The Crystal Faeries will definitely add a little magick and sparkle to your life so go discover the crystal you need and invite the faeries into your life today.
