Uses of Quartz Crystals

Quartz has so many uses that one can apply in daily life; they are tools not only for spiritual development, but also for physical applications. And this is because we are 3 dimensional beings – a physical, mental, and spiritual combo. Since the beginning of his evolution, man has used stones or crystals in much the same way we use appliances today. Here we take a look at some of the many uses of quartz crystals.

It is said that the ancient civilization of Atlantis used quartz crystals to harness and generate electricity. Being so in tune with the electrical universe is a concept that is not so farfetched today, when we consider that scientists have recently discovered certain kinds of bacteria that feed exclusively on electricity. It is clear, our universe is electric in nature, right down to the atoms and molecules.

The characteristic of quartz crystals, being pyroelectric and piezoelectric in nature, enables them to conduct, store, and transmute electromagnetic currents, more so than most other kinds of crystal rocks. This is why they are used so extensively in the semi-conductor industry, as silicon chips for almost all electrical devices. But their uses are not limited to industrial uses; regular people like you and me can all go about benefiting from quartz crystals in more ways than one!

Quartz crystals as healing tools

Quartz crystals can be used in either healing layouts or simply held in the hand. The important key to success is in achieving a calm, meditative state of mind while the process is being carried out, and to direct or focus thoughts (energy) into the end result.

Likewise, when we are ill, our “battery” is running low on power. Crystals recharge our “battery”, and help correct our frequency or wavelength.

The most basic way is to sit down quietly while holding a quartz crystal pointing inwards, in the left hand (receptive hand for right handed people), or in the right hand (for left handed people), for roughly 5-10 minutes at least, and then alternate in the other hand while the crystal is pointing outwards. If you have two crystals, this is even better. Just hold the one crystal pointing inwards with the receptive hand, and one pointing outwards with the other hand. The whole purpose is to simulate an energy current flowing in and out to complete a circuit. This exercise is good for relieving fever, headaches, and fatigue.

A simple exercise to improve the immune system is simply holding a quartz crystal near your heart. The heart chakra is the location of the thymus, and holding a crystal near the thymus can strengthen it. The thymus is believed to be a responsible for producing essential white blood cells that protect the body against pathogens. Another way to have a crystal near or around your heart chakra is to wear a crystal pendant.

Quartz crystals can also be soaked in your drinking water to enhance and turn it into “living water”; the creation of such elixirs is explained in greater detail here.

Crystals and plants

Quartz crystals can be buried into potted plants to help enhance their growing environment. You may bury small chunks of quartz just below the soil surface. You can also point the crystals at your potted plants, externally. The interaction between crystals (mineral kingdom) and plants is both natural and wonderful.

uses of quartz crystals

Quartz crystals have many uses in our lives.

Crystals in the office

Quartz crystals can be placed on your office desk. Looking at the crystal daily can serve as inspiration for you to be at your best, every day. The crystal helps to disperse negative energies and vibes in the vicinity of your work area, and can enhance your working relationship with your colleagues. Quartz crystal clusters are especially good for enhanced group activity and cooperation. Don’t forget to cleanse them from time to time.

Sleeping with crystals

Putting a quartz crystal underneath your pillow can help you to sleep and assist in dream recall. In particular, amethyst (the purple colored form of quartz) is good for insomnia and sleep problems. You can also create a crystal layout on your bed that serves to create a good sleeping atmosphere, by placing four quartz crystals at the four corners of your bed, pointing inward.

Protection against EMF waves

Quartz crystals can be used to protect against the harmful effects of electromagnetic energies caused by WiFi or electrical appliances. Studies have shown that the prevalence of such EMF waves is partly responsible for the increased rates of depression, insomnia, headaches, and many other chronic disorders nowadays. Quartz crystals work much like orgonite, and can be used as an alternative to them in their absence. Place 4 quartz crystals at the four corners of your house, pointing outwards, to help reduce these harmful energies. Wearing crystals as jewelry also helps to minimize the harmful effects of EMF waves.
