The Incredible Crystal Egg
By Stephanie Arnold
The egg is a symbol of life and fertility, of new beginnings, and fragility combined with strength. What first comes to mind may be the new baby bird that emerges from the hard shell of the egg. The egg is also an icon of spring and is representative of the rebirth of greenery in the world after the cold, white winter.
My favorite part of spring is the new baby animals appearing everywhere. If your pets are having babies this spring too, use crystals to help the mom and her young. Red Jasper eggs can be used to stimulate maternal instinct in new mom. All new animals can use some extra love, so add a Rose Quartz egg for calming, loving energy for the whole family. People who are trying to boost their fertility or using crystals to support their pregnancy would also benefit from using crystals that are egg-shaped.
The plants outside are beginning to grow again and it’s almost time to start the garden. Place Green Aventurine eggs in your garden to support healthy plants and abundance in the garden. The egg shape will make this crystal even more supportive of new growth and budding plants. If you grow plants indoors, place the crystals on the soil inside the pot. Another crystal that I love to put in my garden is Green Fluorite for attracting butterflies.
A Tiger Eye egg can bring in the energy and optimism of spring. Carry it with you to keep you motivated and energized. It can also bring in sunny energy when spring showers have darkened your skies. Another crystal with a similar warming energy is Orange Aventurine. Reach for an Orange Aventurine egg to tap into your creativity when you are rearranging your space or starting a new project.
Painting eggs for Easter is an annual family tradition for many. Eggs represent rebirth and symbolize new beginnings as the world reawakens from winter and blossoms into spring. Eggs made of crystal can also be used in your Easter celebration. They make a colorful addition to children’s Easter baskets and provide them with a gift that will last longer than the jelly beans. Kids love to hold and play with crystals and the egg shape fits perfectly into the curve of even the smallest hands (Of course, do not give small crystals to young children or anyone that they pose a choking hazard to). All ages can hold them for comfort or benefit during meditation too. Try using an egg made of White Aventurine or Amethyst to assist in quickly reaching a meditative state.
Crystal eggs are very useful healing tools for reflexology, acupressure and massage therapy. The pointed end of the egg can be used to apply pressure to the reflex points and for massaging sore areas. A Mahogany Obsidian egg is a good choice to use with reflexology because it helps to increase the metabolism and blood circulation. Crystal eggs can be used to clear blockages, balance the Chakras, and direct the flow of energy. A Fluorite egg is a good choice for clearing the aura or Chakras. Hold the crystal egg over the affected area and move it counterclockwise to draw out the blockage. “Held sideways between the thumb and fingers, it can be easily used to scan the Auric field of the body,” according to Melody.
Like other pointed crystals, the egg shape emits energy from the point, making it great for directing energy. You can use your crystal egg to activate your grid and eggs are useful as the center of a crystal grid too. To keep the crystal egg from rolling away, place a key ring or washer underneath it. Working with egg-shaped crystals also helps when you need to hatch new ideas and aids in manifesting those ideas into reality. Try setting up a grid using eggs to manifest what you would like to bring into your life. Don’t forget to add a Green Aventurine egg for good luck!
