The crystal is an energy converter. It converts a small vibration that we release through our hands and control by breath. This small vibration is converted into an electrical field or charge. The crystal is cut from pure natural quartz and faceted, by hand, along the "C" axis, the primary growth axis.
To use the crystal, hold it in your right or left hand, rotate it clockwise and rub it. As you rotate and rub the crystal, you will feel a "stickiness" coming to the crystal’s surface. This "stickiness" is a surface charge being picked up and accumulated by the crystal. The crystal is charged and ready to be used when you hear a static sound. (This is a squeaking sound heard when you rub the crystal with your fingers. It requires a fair amount of pressure.) This charging builds the primary charge in the crystal itself.
The next step in the progress of charging the crystal is to create in the crystal a resonant oscillation. This is done by: drawing in the breath, holding the breath, focusing your mind on the crystal and then suddenly releasing the breath through the nostrils. (This is a pulsing action like a sneeze or blowing your nose.)
Next, draw the breath in, focus on the crystal and, you will feel a small but distinct vibration within it. The crystal is now charged and tuned with your vibration.
Each living form has its own distinct vibration. It is our "signature" in that we each broadcast a distinct vibration. It is the same as we have in our handwriting and our fingerprint. This vibration is transferred to the crystal by the method described. It is through this signature or vibration that you can transfer or receive a charge to or from another person or object.
Hold the crystal in your hand with the thumb on one face (the flat broad face) and the index finger on the longer shaped end of the crystal. Of the crystal’s two ends, one is less acute than the other is. Put the less acutely angled end in the palm of your hand and pace your forefinger on the more sharply terminated end.
We have two sensors that we use when we work with the crystal’s vibration. One is the forefinger and the other is the thumb. The thumb acts a tuning coil and with the thumb you can vary the rate of vibration or frequency of oscillation released through the crystal.
To test out the charge transfer capacity of the crystal, hold the crystal in your hand, draw in your breath filling the chest fully, hold your breath and experience your body oscillating spontaneously with the crystal. The spontaneous oscillation is an excellent indicator that the crystal, the vibration and the overall balance are in effect. As you relax, you will find that your body goes into a periodic oscillation as well.
Point the tip of the crystal at your opposite hand about 6 to 8 inches away and slowly move the crystal up and down. As you do this, go through an arc starting with a zero position, visualizing the face of the clock as follows: one o’clock, two o’clock (beginning oscillation), three o’clock, four o’clock, and so on. As you come to a discreet position you will suddenly feel in the opposite hand a tingling sensation. Furthermore, as you move the crystal back and forth, rather than up and down, this tingling sensation will carry with it the feeling of wind flowing back and forth.
To further test this, hold the crystal in your hand and take the sensor hand in opposition. Have another person take their hand and move it up and down between your hand and the crystal. You will feel an inductive kick in your receiving hand. This is because as the individual makes and breaks the field, a charge will be transferred from the field to that person and to your other hand. It is very much like you are dealing with a motor.
There are various motions one can employ:
A vertical up and down motion of about 2 1/2 inches in dimension which goes around in a slight vertical ellipse. Use this type of oscillation, either clockwise or counter-clockwise. When you enter into the energy body of an individual, enter counter-clockwise and then rotate in a clockwise direction until you come into resonance or in empathy with the field that is present there and employ this movement.
In the second motion you direct the crystal in circular motion (either clockwise or counter-clockwise) visualizing the energy coming out as a cone and flowing to a minute point. This is used to inject a luminous field into the area of treatment. As you move the crystal in a clockwise direction, visualize the energy coming to a white luminous cone in the tip of the crystal. If the direction is reversed, visualize the tip of the crystal turning black, as there is a reversal of charge.
When you work in a circular direction, you visualize light. With the vertical up and down direction there is no internal sensation of light, but purely vibration. You can work with two distinct patterns: the vertical up and down motion equivalent to sound and the circular motion equivalent to light. Both of these are capable of being generated and emitted by the crystal.
The primary act of healing is to assist the individual in bringing the body into balance so that the energetic fields, which surround the body, flow in a natural, meaningful way. We exist both in our bodies as well as out of body. The programming of the energy fields that exist outside the body is that of energetic patterns which become fixed in space and oscillate in much the same way that crystalline unit cells will oscillate in a natural crystal. Very weak but precise charges can critically affect these patterns that we have around the body.
An ancient method of therapy for working with these forms of energy is acupuncture or acupressure. The Chinese have plotted these into what are called meridians. In these meridians are various points of differential resistance at the tissue area. These differential resistance areas are the acupuncture points. You can work on these points with the crystal in much the same manner as with needles although the crystal need only penetrate the energy body and not the physical body.
THE CRYSTAL AND BREATH
One important aspect of working with a crystal is the breath. Breath and life are synonymous. When you breathe deeply, you invigorate the body with a vital charge. As you draw the breath in, you draw in oxygen necessary for the energy of life in the cells themselves. In that breath you are also drawing in a fluid - a particulate unit of life-energy, which is, called prana. Prana exists everywhere and is utilized by the thinking mind to build the patterns of energy we call thought. As a man thinks, so he is, and energy follows thought.
There are four stages to the act of breathing:
the incoming breath,
the indwelling breath,
the outgoing breath,
breath held out.
If you listen carefully when you breathe, you will note a distinct difference in tonality at each stage of breath. The four-stage process of breath is the primary heating cycle that keeps the body temperature constant and comes from the oxygenation of the blood. When the lungs are in vital active functioning condition, devoid of interference by smoking or pollutants, there is a rapid and precise exchange of the oxygen in the atmosphere into the bloodstream. Vitality globules or pranic energy is also transferred with the oxygen.
As you draw the breath in, you build the patterns of thought, intention, and what you wish to do, be, or perform. The act of programming the crystal or your own body occurs with the incoming breath, the inhalation. It is on the inhalation that the program is written. As you hold the breath there is a transfer of not only the oxygen, but also the intention or thought that you draw in with the breath.
Rapid, shallow breathing will strip you of vitality and make you subject to all of the vicissitudes of negative thinking which surround you at all times. To be vital, functioning and strong in working with the crystal, learn deep precise, sonorous breathing. Above all, do not be afraid to dwell in your breath and let the intentions permeate the body and complete their process.
When the process is completed, the waste products of the metabolism of the body, including carbon dioxide, are released with the outgoing breath. With that CO2 come the negative patterns that have been stored. For every positive thought, for every affirmative action, there is also the resistance that goes with it. As you release the breath in a kind and gentle way you bring the polarities together to form a balance, the whole.
As you rest at the bottom end of the outgoing breath, you can prepare for the next stage of breathing. This is the primary cycle. With this cycle there comes also a series of vibrations. There are two forms of breathing: in through the nostrils and out through the nostrils. You will notice in breathing out through the nostrils that there is a deep sonorous vibrating tone to it. Breathing through the mouth, there is crispness and sharpness to the tone. The tone is much sharper. These are the two limits of the tonal range that we compose in the symphony of living...our orchestra that vibrates within our body.
The Vogel-cut® crystal is designed to bring balance to the body so that the body can breath again in a right and meaningful way. For all life to exist, to be meaningful, must be in a state of balance. When life becomes polarized in one direction or the other, there is an interference with the pattern of living.
Point a charged crystal at your opposite hand and move it in an up and down direction and let us again go through the breathing cycle. As you do that and come to the peak of your cycle, you will feel coolness in the opposite hand. The charge is moving from the crystal into the opposite hand. Breathe out and feel the charge waning.
This is a very important point I wish you to now ponder and remember. The period where your crystal is at its maximum of utilization and usefulness is when you have drawn your breath in and have held it. In the holding of breath the charge builds up and comes to its peak and maximum efficiency of charge release.
We store both around the body and in the various organs, and particularly in the bony structures, vibrations or programs which are inharmonious to the normal process of living. This means that the vibration is out of place. It is not performing a useful function and the body does not know how to release it. It is a psychic or energetic cancer. As a cell which is out of place growing on its own in a differentiating way, distinct from the surrounding tissue, is classified as a cancer, so too, we accumulate negative charges which disturb our pattern of living. These are parasitic.
The following types of vibrations develop parasitic energy imbalances: a broken bone from a fall or injury. After the bone has healed and the tissue and bone are rebuilt, there is stored in the fracture area the impression of the moment of impact and reason for the injury. At that junction in the bone there is an inharmonious vibration residing. These often persist, remaining with the tissue until the area is purified from the disturbed vibration. One of the primary functions the healing crystal serves is in removing these inharmonious vibrations.
Tissue damage through surgical intervention creates shock in the body causing a state of imbalance in the area where the surgery has been performed. Prior to surgery, a program can be inserted, with the crystal, to prepare that tissue for operation by visualizing the operation and informing the body of what is to come. In post-op, the stress can be removed and the element of pain removed entirely by using the crystal to extract the shock and then project the love that one has within and the desire that the tissue grow back in a normal, meaningful way.
Records are written in bone. Spinal injuries and whiplash are prime examples where precise treatment can be given. A sudden impact or blow is stored in the tissue. The mind has no accessing mechanism for why the injury took place and therefore cannot release the damage to the tissue. It becomes stuck in this area. These can be released with the use of the crystal.
Arthritic conditions of certain types, especially in the early stages of arthritis are amenable to treatment and can be reversed in a dramatic way. Above all, wherever there is trauma, where a person has suffered severe emotional and psychic injury (separation form a loved one, divorce, feelings of inadequacy), there is trauma and shock stored in the primary centers which control the total body function.
The act of healing means to bring the body into balance. The act of healing means bring the Soul into contact with the functioning of the body so the two can act as one in the third: Spirit. Body, mind, and spirit then act in concert or as one.
