Creation of a Sacred Tool- Talismans, Talking Sticks, Wands and Staffs. Part 2- The Crystals
Humanity has, since the dawn of time utilised crystals and gemstones. This affinity has remained to this day. The use of these gifts with and within Amulets and Talismans has been ongoing. Some of the oldest Amulets have been dated back 60,000 years discovered in gravesites from Switzerland and Belgium. The Egyptians used Turquoise, Emerald, Lapis Lazuli, Carnelian and Clear Quartz for their adornments and protection from the physical, along within protection against evil spirits. In Ancient Sumeria crystals were used for ritual magick as well as magickal potions and tinctures.
It is from the Ancient Greeks that we can attribute a number of properties of crystals. They believed Clear quartz was the result of frozen water within the depths of the earth that eventually became solid. “Ice” is derived from the Greek word for Crystal Quartz.
From Australia to Europe and between, cultures have their own lore regarding different crystals and stone. It is interesting to notice that many of these ancient cultures had similar uses and definitions though they are so far apart. Many cultures believed them to be in fact sentient and held different energies.
It is here I begin the story of my Talismans and sacred tools. Until recently I relied solely on how the crystal or stone felt to me, how it is guided to be used within one of my creations. For me this is the most important factor, ‘Does it FEEL’ right? Occasionally I will reference a crystal if I feel the need to look further into something that is calling me, this too is guided and another part of weaving the story of the piece.
When I step out of my ego and into pure connection with spirit I listen and feel my way into what crystals should and should not be used within a specific piece. Not once has this guidance ever failed me. I learnt early that if I used what I thought rather than what I felt or intrinsically knew, something would happen to the piece during its creation, It would not set or I would somehow drop and break the piece…I learned fast to trust what my guidance proposed!
Each crystal has its own feel, a resonance or vibration that has an effect with and within the human body and energy field or light body.
The crystals, through ritual and ceremony are woven into the fabric of intention set for the talisman or tool. This weaving of energies assists to create a spiralling connection of energetic wonder. Magick is in the air.
The Deva of each crystal sits with you. The crystals hold wisdom and protect from negative influences. They are woven together to walk your journey with you and this wisdom is on tap for when you feel it, it becomes a part of you if you like. Opening the channels to knowing and learning, safety and protection.
Crystals are well known as part of wholistic healing experience, when created in the process of talisman or tool correctly this healing experience is enhanced and becomes a friend for life.
Once again thank you for sharing your time with me and that this assists you on your own personal journey.
