Our Crystal Connection

Mar 31, 2021 12:05PM ● By Shae Marcus

We are electromagnetic. Crystals are electromagnetic; we connect energetically with crystals and also due to their electromagnetic properties and their use in radios, computers, medical devices and more. Over the ages, crystals have fascinated people and have been used to facilitate healing on spiritual, physical, mental and emotional levels.

Crystal formation

 According to The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall, “a crystal is a solid body with a geometrically regular shape.” They were created along with the Earth itself over eons of years and continue to metamorphosize as the planet does. They can be seen as miniature storehouses of the development of the Earth and holding the memory of the powerful forces that shaped it.

 Some crystals were subjected to enormous pressure, others grew in chambers deep underground, some were laid down in layers while others dripped into being. How they grew affects their properties and the way they function.  “Whatever form they take, their crystalline structure can absorb, conserve, focus and emit energy especially on the electromagnetic waveband.”

It is the unique, internal, crystal lattice that identifies the crystal and classifies it, not its formation or color.


Healing with crystals has been going on for thousands of years. The earliest report dates back to the fourth millennium before the birth of Christ. They can be found in Sumerian writings, in transcripts from Indian Vedic texts and in the Bible.  

Crystals have shown over time to be effective in holistic healing. And because they are piezoelectric—that electricity and sometimes light is produced by compression—modern medicine practices have harnessed this property in ultrasound machines.

 How they are used

 Crystals can be displayed around the home or work area; held and carried; worn in pouches and jewelry; and used in meditation, dreamworks, body layouts, grids and as energy tools.

 How to pick a crystal

Holding a crystal or becoming aware that one is “calling” you by its color or shape are ways to find the best one.
