Crystal Shapes - Which Shape is for You?
Crystal spheres, pyramids, wands, generators, skulls, eggs and hearts ... the list goes on! Crystal shapes all emit different energy, so which crystal shape should you use and when?
Spheres, or a round ball as I've often heard them called (oh the horror), will emit energy in all different directions. This is a lovely shape crystal to place around the home, it will spread its good vibes equally and is pretty to look at too! Crystal spheres are also really nice to hold whilst meditating, their shape fits perfectly in your hand. Spheres represent wholeness and balance, they can also enhance psychic abilities.
A crystal in the shape of a pyramid (four equal triangular sides that meet in a point with a flat base) is very effective for amplifying energy. The energy is directed through the point at the top, called the apex. It is thought that Egyptians used the pyramid shape to send the pharaoh's soul straight to the gods (amplified energy!). Pyramids represent prosperity.
Wands have many uses, they can be used for massage therapy (eg a massage wand), acupressure and reflexology. They can also be used to direct energy in a certain direction, draw negative energy away from you and to activate grids. Wands can be used for chakra healing.
Crystal Points - Generators & Obelisks
Generators and obelisks are 2 shapes that are often confused with each other. You can easily identify which shape you have by counting the number of sides. A generator has 6 equal sides that meet in a point at the top and obelisks have 4 equal sides.
Points such as generators, obelisks and pyramids are great shapes to use if you wish to direct or amplify energy. These shapes are especially powerful when used in crystal grids as your focus stone (the centrepiece of the grid) as it will amplify the intention of your grid and boost the energy of the grid's supporting crystals.
Skulls are not for everyone, and I have to admit, until recently, I couldn't see the fascination people have with them. Now I look at each of them and see they have little personalities of their own. Crystal skulls are associated to channelling information from other dimensions. They are considered to be powerful energy tools.
The pointed end of an egg shaped crystal is often used by practitioners of acupressure, reflexology and massage. Similar to spheres, crystal eggs are a great shape to hold whilst meditating. Eggs represent fertility, birth and new beginnings.
Heart shaped crystals do what they look like they should be doing, they work on healing emotions and the heart chakra. Hearts represent love and relationships and can be used to attract love from others as well as encourage self-love.
We hope you enjoy working with all the different crystal shapes!
