Spirit Quartz are simply magic, and once you have experienced this crystals energy, you will never be without one in your home. If you are looking for a special piece, take note that they may sometimes be called Cactus Quartz, Faerie Quartz and Pineapple Quartz.
These mystical pieces are found exclusively in Southern Africa, and have only been available on the world market since 2002. With the presence of un-oxidised iron they range in colour from a rich purple, to violet and if the iron is oxidised the crystals become a golden citrine. If you find an amentrine Spirit Quartz (Amethyst & Citrine), hold onto it as they are quite rare. Without the presence of iron, the crystals are a sublime white.
What makes these little darlings so special ? Lets start with their distinctive physical structure. Spirit Quartz has a central shaft that terminates in a point at its peak. This shaft is then covered in hundreds and sometimes thousands of smaller crystalline points which spiral around the body. This unique structure is possible due to the presence of jasper, which supports multiple crystallisations.
Spirit Quartz opens, activates, balances and harmonises the crown chakra, allowing one to connect fully with divine wisdoms. As the crown chakra is energetically charged, one’s clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient and claircognisant states are also heightened. In this state of higher vibration, one is open to receive divine guidance about their life’s purpose and the steps to take to fulfill this divine plan.
This guidance is often received with such clarity, that one’s fear is non-existent, as one chooses to live to the full potential of their soul purpose with strength, clarity, peace and grace.
Energetically these crystals hold the template of group co-hension and facilitate harmony in relationships, families, the workplace and social gatherings.
Placed within the heart of your home, on your desk at work, or ‘overseeing’ an event, Spirit Quartz brings understanding and/or insights for resolution of relationship problems or discord in group dynamics, hence fostering peace.
Lucid dreaming and astral travelling are both intensified when Spirit Quartz is placed under the pillow or on the bedside table during your sleep hours. To improve dream recall, or for inter-stellar travel, try combining with Herkimer Diamonds or Celestite.
If you feel drawn to moving deeper within yourself, releasing the bonds that are holding you back, and living a more authentic life, then Spirit Quartz may assist this process. Use the crystal in meditation to identify the obstacles and gain a sound understanding of why you have created them and what you are to learn from them. As you acknowledge the lesson, and take heed of the beauty of growth they facilitated, the need to hold onto this blockage no longer exists. One becomes free of this burden, and wiser for the lesson.
Spirit Quartz has the ability to both draw in and transmit energy from its numerous points, making the crystal both an effective healing tool for direct hands on healing and/or magnifying the effect of other crystals/minerals in its presence.
Spirit Quartz is an ideal crystal to use in meditation to help balance the chakras, draw in energy to ‘re-weave’ holes within ones energetic body’s and release any discordant vibrations.
Creativity, ‘light bulb’ moments, and fertility are all enhanced in the presence of Spirit Quartz. Whether you are a writer, artist, composer, inventor, actor or budding performer, this crystal will assist you in tapping into inspirations which are ‘other worldly’, and provide you with a platform to create through divine inspiration. Through the creative alignment of our body, mind and spirits, we not only give birth to creative genius, but we can also create something very sacred, life itself.
Children love the splendour of Spirit Quartz as it has a natural attraction to the fairy and devic realm, and in particular Archangel Ariel. This crystal is like a child’s best friend, as children delight in the joy, frivolity and cheekiness of all the fourth dimensional energy’s at play.
Adults too can tune into Spirit Quartz vibration to lighten up on their journey of awakening & ascension and remember that their journey can be fun, it is simply a choice !
Overall, Spirit Quartz is just one of those crystals to have, hold and love in your life, a treasure to be enjoyed. These gifts from Mother Earth hold the consciousness of divine Love, Peace and Unity and when we choose to align our heart & soul with their vibrations, we are paving the way for all of humanity to make the shift into a higher state of consciousness. A consciousness of LOVE.
