The desire to know things beyond the range of the 5 gross senses is a common and apparently constant desire of the human condition. From the use of professional dowsers by major oil companies, to the acceptance of women's intuition, knowing there is something just beyond our sensory range is taken very much for granted.
Those who claim to have psychic powers are largely ridiculed in today's "rational" society, partly because of our "scientific" training, but often due to the many charlatans whose claim to subtle powers is made with the single intention of lightening our wallets.
However, the well documented use of dowsers by the oil companies far from lightened their wallets. On the contrary, the vast profits it produced was proof positive that the extraordinary was both possible and profitable.
How to develop our inherent psychic abilities is understandably one of the most common questions we receive. Here we list, with information relevant to their practical use, easily available crystals and gemstones most likely to bring about the quickest and easiest psychic development for most people.
Quartz crystals naturally structure, energize and literally expand the subtle bodies.
This has been shown with Kirlian photography, where holding a small double terminated crystal (a point at both ends), was shown to double the photographable part of the aura.
The Kirlian camera uses electron cascades to make the electro-magnetic fields that surrounds us visible, in a similar way that iron filings can make magnetic fields around magnets visible. Increasing aura size is significant to those wanting to develop psychically, as like anything else, expanding our senses requires energy and not any energy will do.
A plate of fries certainly contains a great deal of energy in the form of carbs, but (unfortunately!), it will not help in this endeavour. We need that energy which feeds our subtle bodies, and the Kirlian photographs show this is just what quartz crystals do.
"The quartz crystal is the connection between the physical dimension and the dimensions of the mind. It can be used to communicate with minerals, plants, animals, and intelligent forces outside the physical dimension. In early times, when all things were thought to be parts of a greater living consciousness, the quartz crystal was believed to synchronize the individual and total consciousness with that of the heavens and advanced life-forms."
In addition to the general properties quartz possesses, certain types and formations are especially useful in developing psychic abilities, whatever level we are at. The most accessible is the channelling formation. A list of all quartz formation properties can be found here.
This picture shows how crystal faces are counted to distinguish the different formations. The principle behind this is that numbers have qualities and are more than mere indicators of quantities. This is the very basis of sacred geometry and has far reaching implications.
The main, front face is large and seven sided. Its opposite, rear face is a smaller triangle.
Seven indicates wisdom and mysticism. Three indicates understanding what appeared irreconcilable, by the introduction of another factor/deeper vision. This vision "surfaces" as the triangle is the manifestation of a surface from a line in geometric progression.
This crystal facilitates a connection between both our conscious mind and innate wisdom, as well as other planes of existence. The benefits of such an opportunity would be hard to exaggerate. Very potent crystals. An extremely useful crystal for those who have a desire to develop their psychic faculties.
Amethyst - stimulates the Crown chakra
"Amethyst is a stone of spirituality and contentment. It facilitates transmutation of the lower energies into the higher frequencies. It is representative of the principle of complete metamorphosis. It clears the aura and stabilizes and transmutes any dysfunctional energy located within ones body. Amethyst also bestows stability, strength, invigoration and peace."
Green Fluorite - stimulates the Heart chakra
"Grounds excess energy dissipates emotional trauma. It is particularly effective at absorbing negative energies within the environment. It brings information up from the subconscious mind and accesses intuition. It is an effective auric, chakra, and mental cleanser, dissipating obsolete conditioning."
Blue Tigers Eye (Hawks Eye) - stimulates the 3rd Eye chakra
Ruled by Ketu (North lunar node), which influences many aspects of mysticism, this gorgeous chatoyant blue activates the 3rd eye and enhances all forms of subtle seeing.
Red Jasper - dreaming
"Red jasper can facilitate the reiteration of dreams to allow the dreamer to remember the aspects which could be consequential in ones life."
