Crystal elixirs what are they, why I love them and why you should love them too?
Author: Melanie Jones Date Posted:9 June 2018
I have been obsessed with crystals ever since I was a little girl, and I incorporate crystals into so many elements of my life on a daily basis, from the skin care products I use, to my meditation and yoga practices and also to that of my drinking water. Yes, my drinking water.
The water I consume is not just any water though, it is water infused with crystal energy. Gem water, or gem elixir put simply is water that has been infused with the energy patterns of the crystals, raising its vibration.
First let's take a look at the crystals themselves. We will look at their structure, their energy and how they work. We will then take a look at the human body and its energy fields called the Chakras, these are the energy fields through which crystals and gem water pass on their positive charged vibrations. In addition to this, we will then plunge (no pun intended) into water, its constitution and its relationships with our body. And to conclude we will take a quick look at gem water throughout history and its popularity now in the 21st century and how it is having a positive experience in people’s lives, through simple consumption that is raising awareness to ones spiritual and emotional wellbeing and to ones overall physical health.
Gem water is water that has been imprinted with a stone or crystals vibrational energy. Crystals work through vibrational resonance, they focus, store, transmit and transmute energy, and a crystal whilst serene to look at is in fact a seething mass of atoms and molecules which are all vibrating and rubbing up against each other.
This tiny amount of movement, albeit imperceptible to the average human gives crystals measurable energy. This energy is not just contained in the stone itself but emits out from the stone into its surroundings. (Much like radio waves). This crystal energy can then be used in different applications, for example powering a watch, inside an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) television, for the purpose of reiki healing or in this case, being transferred into water, offering a holistic approach to realigning the bodies main energy centres and re-balancing the mind body and soul bringing the body back into alignment.
Those who already consume crystal gem water are drinking a powerful, energetic elixir, and many say it has a positive effect on their overall health, stating that gem water tastes smoother, cleaner and fresher and offers a higher level of vitality and stamina, and that they have a more optimistic outlook on life, with improved health. So why and how is this so? Lets look at the human body a little closer.
The Body and the Chakras
The word Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”. Chakras do not exist in physical reality but are believed to be psychic centres that exist in the spiritual dimension. They are energy portals located within the body through which we process our universal life force energy. And it is through the chakras we filter life’s daily events, hopes, dreams, experiences, fears, regrets, thoughts and communications. These chakras spin like pinwheels as they process and transmit energy from the physical realm to the nonphysical realm.
There are seven major chakras each approximately two inches in diameter, lined up on the spine from the tip of the tailbone to the crown of the head, and science now understand that the location of the chakras corresponds with the seven major nerve ganglia that emanate from the spinal column. The seven major chakras are Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and the Crown.
In yoga psychology the chakras are the meeting point or intersection where the mind and the body meet. The seven basic chakras which exist in the subtle body are associated with seven levels of consciousness. As we experience the opening of a chakra we experience growth, change and a deeper understanding and state of consciousness, which in turn contributes to better health, physically, mentally and spiritually. The body and the mind are interrelated, as each governs and affects the other. So if one is suffering, so in turn the other will also suffer being it emotionally, physically or spiritually.
Vibrational healing or resonance healing is based on the doctrine that the molecular arrangement of the physical body is actually a complex network of subtle energy fields. But what is subtle energy? Let’s start with the undisputed fact that all matter in the universe is made up of energy. Subtle energy is invisible to the human eye and is non-physical with it being super imposed on our physical bodies. If you experience an environment that makes you feel uncomfortable, say a dark alley whilst walking alone and you get a feeling of discomfort or unexplained fear or concern this is your subtle energy speaking to you. Some may call it your sixth sense or intuition. This is your body tuning into your subtle energy. Another easy way to explain this unseen energy is to compare it to that of a radio signal. There are no wires transmitting signals to your radio yet you hear sound and music, this is due to invisible electromagnetic energy being carried on energy waves to the radio.
Our bodies unique energy systems are constantly under attack by the daily grind of life, our emotions, and outside influences and stresses, which can cause our subtle energies to become out of balance thus influencing our bodies health in a negative direction, which then can harbour illness, stress and dis-ease.
Old legends and obscure literature of Atlantis tells us that Atlanteans could control what one calls the “life force” and that the art of healing was done through vibrational essences of gems. It was also thought that they could harness and control the higher dimensional energies of consciousness.
Presently conventional medicine tries to cure illness by physically repairing or eliminating abnormal cellular disorders/sickness/disease, through drugs and surgery, but they tend to forget the spiritual dimension which is the energetic basis of all life. It is this energy of spirit that animates the physical body.
The belief that crystal infused gem water may assist in rebalancing the bodies energy systems by bringing it back into alignment and wellness, is one that has been around for centuries, and it has been used and documented widely throughout many civilisations for it effect on one’s health and wellbeing
In the year 2000 BC the Egyptians used crystals for health and wellbeing and considered Lapis Lazuli sacred. Lapis Lazuli was used to improve their eyesight and headaches and was also considered a protective stone. They would also regularly bathe in water that had been filled with crushed crystals. In fact they believed so strongly in the protective powers of some crystals that they insisted that they be buried with them to ensure their departed soul’s safe passage to the next life.
Then there is the Greek physician, pharmacologist and botanist Pedanius Dioscorides who died in 90AD who was the author of Materia Medica, a 5 volume Greek encyclopedia about herbal medicine and related medicinal substances. In this journal, he described a comprehensive list of over two hundred crystals and gems that could be used for healing which was widely accepted and read and put into use for more than 1, 500 years.
So what do scientists have to say about the properties of crystals and crystal healing?
Whilst crystals outwardly look serene, internally they are super charged due to their internal makeup and their crystalline structure or “lattice formation”. Crystals are actually in a constant frenzied state, with its molecular structure of atoms and molecules vibrating in continuous motion. It is these vibrations which have been triggered by the tremendous force and pressure during their formation over thousands of years that gives crystals their storehouse of energy.
Internally these atoms and molecules are tightly compacted together in an organised formation; however, they do have a small amount of space around each atom and molecule to move. Whilst there is not enough space to push or shove past neighbouring particles there is just enough to allow for a tiny amount of movement and friction which in turn causes a vibration, and this is how crystals produce and emit their incredible magical energy.
The body and its internal water structure?
Through understanding the science of water and its connection to health, healing and the body, we can gain an insight into the concept of Gem Water.
References to healing springs, sacred pools and other healing water sites have been around since the beginning of time. Even in the world’s oldest medical literature with extensive writings from Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, there is mention of the benefits of healing waters.
We as humans are living water, and if we are to understand our physiology and how to repair or prevent symptoms of illness, aging and disease in our bodies we must first understand our bodies as they actually are.
Research over the years suggests our bodies are filled with oscillating solid and liquid crystals, with these highly organised and ordered structures resembling those of mineral crystals found in the earth.
Water has been proven to have a crystalline structure, and like solid crystals the atoms and molecules found in water have a repeating organised geometric pattern. As water is a liquid crystal it has the ability to change and alter its geometric pattern. Water responds to stimuli and energy of all kinds and depending on the stimuli or the energy to which it is exposed, the structural patterns of the water will change into either a higher crystalline symmetry with enhanced geometrical complexity or it will degrade into disorder. Most drinking water has been processed and altered to such a degree that the structure of the water, the geometric patterns are broken and in a state of chaos and disorder.
Our bodies water, our internal waters are called bio waters, and we are made almost completely of structured water. This structured water our bio water is both solid crystal (i.e. bone and dentin) and liquid crystal (i.e. cellular membranes, collagen, fatty tissue, cell salts, enzymes and proteins). The structured bio water found in our body accounts for around 70% of our body weight, and is found in three main locations. Within our cells, in the space between our cells and in our blood. With different parts of our body consisting of unique compositions of water. Our teeth consist of approx. 10% water, bones 31%, the brain 73%, the heart also 73% and the lungs are a huge 83% water.
We know that drinking an adequate amount of water is essential to the body. It helps keep your memory sharp, your mood stable and your motivation intact. On a more critical level water aids our digestion and circulation. It helps regulate our body temperature, it assists in the absorption of nutrients and helps regulate our metabolism. And of course, water eliminates body waste and toxins that build up in our body.
Throughout the course of our lives we are slowly dehydrating, with the average adult body loosing approximately 2.5ltrs of water per day? Throughout the day, the majority of the water we lose is through sweat and urination. But I bet you didn’t know that we also lose water through the simple task of breathing? And children lose proportionately more fluids through sweat than adults. I wonder how many of us really drink enough water?
So, with all these facts taken into consideration are you wondering how you can get your hands on some crystal infused gem water, and improve your overall health, mind, body and soul?
Well up until now it has been a relatively complicated procedure if you wanted to do it right and not put yourself in harm’s way.
If you’re the kind of person to dump a couple of crystals directly into your glass to make your gem water please don’t, as you need to have extensive knowledge of which stones are safe to use, as many crystals are harmful with toxic properties and are unsafe to use when consumed as gem water, elixirs and the like.
Then you have to find out whether the stones being used have been exposed to polishing agents, glues, resins and fillers whilst they were going through the manufacturing process.
Thirdly there is the possibility of crystals fracturing and depositing fragment debris into your gem water, thus compromising the very water you are consuming to enhance your wellbeing. Not to mention the possibility of choking should you decide to leave the crystals floating around at the bottom of your drinking vessel.
For most at this point, the effort outweighed the health benefits. That was until now.
