Subject: Inquiry from HealingCrystals.com - Discount Prices on Healing Crystals, Minerals & Tumbled Stones
Hi, I have an obsidian pendulum with a slice of clear quartz geod instead of a bead to hold. I have been using it to test the power of the stones I have. I noticed I can change the direction of its swing by rotating the stone I am testing. I noticed this first with a Lemurian seed crystal. There seems to be a polarity at work even with tumbled stones. I received my Reiki Master attunement several months ago and I am interested in using crystals in conjunction with Reiki. Does this polarity dictate a particular placement of the stones? How would this variation in movement effect scrying? (Hope that is the correct term.)
I just ordered several Merkaba stars and I am excited to get to know them. Any suggestions on how to use them most effectively. I ordered smokey, clear and rose quartz and amethyst. Amethyst is my birthstone and I have always loved it so I am thrilled to be able to use it for healing.
Congrats on your master attunement and thank you for your question. While I am not an expert in polarity by any means, I can tell you that crystals are effective even without a consideration for polarity. However, it would seem that, by aligning the polarity of a healing crystal to the polarity of the human body, a better flow of healing energy could be achieved. The polarity of the human body is believed to be negative at the bottom and left side of the body and positive at the top and right side of the body. If you are able to determine the polarity of a specific crystal, then you could align it with the polarity of the client, thus increasing the energy flow, helping to break up any blockages in the chakras or nadis. If you ever find yourself unsure of the crystal's polarity versus the client's, try moving the crystal around in position, until it feels right to you.
When using a pendulum for scrying over a crystal, the polarity of the crystal would effect the movement of the pendulum. Therefore, it would be helpful for you to ask for separate "yes" and "no" responses before doing any actual scrying work. That way, you would already have those indicators when you begin scrying. Incidently, most crystals do carry a charge, especially if any type of mechanical or energetic pressure is applied to it, especially Quartz.
I have a few Merkabas myself and I can tell you that they have a unique energy based on the Sacred Geometry of both the structure of the crystal and the shape of the Merkaba. That being said, each crystal, regardless of shape or size, will have varying effects depending on the person working with them. How best to use any crystal would depend on the individual. This is why it is important to spend time attuning to a new crystal for a few days to a week or more, to help you determine its best function in your own energy work. During this process, you could keep a new stone with you in your pocket, meditate with it daily, and even sleep with it in your hand or under your pillow, depending on the size and shape. I've found this to be the best way for me to learn what role the new crystal will play in my own work. Merkabas are especially great for chakra work, and can be placed on the chakras, in a body layout. They can also be placed at the location of the chakras, under your table. This can balance and align the chakras, while you give the client Reiki, and will usually enhance the whole experience.
While I have not considered the whole polarity issue in my own energy healing work, I am grateful that you submitted your question, because now I too will be experimenting with it. Thank you!
I hope this information is what you are looking for. Feel free to send in any additional questions you might have.
Love and Light,
