The second problem: Why do all the crystal books have almost completely different and even contradictory information about stones and crystals?
I finally arrived at an answer that best resonates best for me: Each person channels (channeling meaning communicating/receiving information) different information from stones. This information is filtered through their belief system that they received all the way from early as childhood, what they are going through at the present moment, and what resonates best for them at that particular moment. For example, when someone meditates with a stone in order to connect with it, and in this case we will use rose quartz, the rose quartz will trigger the emotional body (as manganese bearing stones can do) and this is why people refer to this stones as the stone of love. However this trigger may be great for some people who block their emotions and need to connect with their feelings but, on the other hand, can be almost disastrous stone to work with for someone who feels stuck in their emotions and feels there is no way out therefore connecting even deeper with the emotional body may not be the best route for someone to heal and become balanced again.
As you can see, crystals and stones can affect two people completely differently. We are so individually unique and not all the stones are going to react to us the same way, which is great! Its great because we don’t have to rely on someone else’s research about crystals. We have a perfect intuition that can lead us to the right crystal to work with.
High Heart Healing Crystal Tip: Before going outside to start your day take three deep breaths in and out, relax for a moment, and choose by intuition what crystal wants to come along with you for the day (preferably only one crystal at a time). Pick it up and ask it, “how can you work with me today?” and go about your day. Notice all the changes that came from the day. How did you feel? What new things/changes happened? What were the themes of your thoughts throughout the day? At the end of the day journal what you received.
