As one who had never been interested in or aware of the power of crystals, my first contact with Lemurian crystals came as a shock (see April 11, 2011 Crystal Surprise) (see also Links, Diana Cooper). Today came another shock. While visiting a new acquaintance, Selma, she brought out a basket filled with crystals of every size, shape, color, configuration, and texture. Shiny, rough, smooth, purple, mauve, rose, white, they nestled, humming softly. From the first, my attention became fixed on a large obelisk, which I immediately identified as a Lemurian crystal from the characteristic horizontal markings on one faceted face. To refresh our memories, these horizontal markings are etched into the crystal with such fine precision that they appear to have been done by a laser. This particular crystal was approximately 6 inches tall, with a hefty weight, and a solid “feel”. Holding it in my hand, I looked in the basket and noticed several more of these crystals. The others were not as large as this, but of a good size and heft.

In conversation with Selma, I wondered fleetingly whether I would have any reaction to this crystal (see Crystal Surprise, April 11, 2011). There was no immediate sense of warmth, pulsing current, or sound, but suddenly I received the unmistakable impression that this crystal needed to placed upright so that it could begin its function, which is the transmission of energy. The message was strong and it was urgent. Unfortunately, Selma was not listening. As I reached for another crystal and began to tell her what the large crystal had communicated to me, she interrupted me with words, whose specifics I do not remember, but the gist of which was that these crystals belonged to her, that she would be the one deciding what they would and would not do, and that she was not the least bit happy with my interference in her crystal affairs. Of course, I immediately retreated, apologizing for my intrusion, telling her that I had only been repeating what the crystal had told me. Thinking to myself, “Well, that’s that!”, I prepared to listen to Selma expound on her other crystals.

In the space of a heartbeat, Selma did an about-face. Suddenly she became very interested in what the Lemurian crystals had to say, so I explained while placing them upright around her apartment. All six of them wanted to be upright, placed around the room, encircling it. Upright, they would then connect with each other and began transmitting energy to raise the frequency of the space and of anyone within their circle. Despite her earlier strong reaction, Selma allowed me to place the crystals for their maximum effect. We sat on the couch, encircled with the crystals, which, presumably had begun transmitting.

For a long time, I was so absorbed in Selma’s very interesting conversation that I did not take notice of the vibrations around me. Soon, though, I began to feel a force embracing me, impacting me at my heart chakra and moving upwards. I asked Selma whether she felt anything. She said that she could feel it from her third chakra, also moving upwards as if it were trying to lift her. Again, I told her how the web worked and how powerful it would be for her if she were to make some kind of permanent placement of the crystals—they would let her know where they needed to be placed.

We continued the conversation for some little time, then I bade adieu due to extreme pressure to go to visit Selma’s friend, Louise, who lived just a few doors down (see post of April 18, 2011 Everyday Wonders). Near the end of my visit with Louise, the crystals again communicated with me. Giving very specific instructions, they had me sketch out for Louise how they wanted to be arranged for maximum effect. They required little pots made of glazed clay, preferably rounded rather than V-shaped. The pots must have saucers. The pots were to be filled with small, rounded quartz stones of varying shapes and sizes in a mixture of white and pink. The white ones would amplify white light, while the pink ones would send out love to impact the heart chakra. Each crystal would be placed upright in a pot, then surrounded with these small quartz stones. The pot with the upright crystal would be placed around the room in conjunction with its sister crystals, which would then all begin transmission.

Louise and I were aghast at this information, I most of all, since up until April 11 when I had my first encounter with Lemurian crystals, I had considered all crystal work to be bogus hocus-pocus. Dear Readers, there is nothing like direct, undeniable experience to convince those willing to keep an open mind. As you can imagine, I am now on fire to acquire large crystals—it feels like six—to place in my own sunroom in little pots filled with white and pink quartz crystals. At present, I do not know where this is leading and with what consequences, but the journey is fascinating. I would appreciate hearing from any of you who have crystal experience or who have information about this entire process. Thank you all for accompanying me on this most interesting journey.

“Little darlin’, it’s been a long, cold, lonely winter. Little darlin’ it feels like years since it’s been clear. Here comes the sun (doo doo doo doo); here comes the sun, what I say. It’s all right.” (from “Here Comes the Sun”, sung by the Beatles). It has, indeed, been a long, cold, lonely winter up here in the frozen tundra of New England and we are finally digging ourselves out. Crocuses are in full bloom, smiling at the sun, while busy and resourceful little bees sip their nectar for future honey pots; tulips peek out of the warm earth, stretching upward in anticipation of glowing red in the full light of day; peepers cheep in the wetlands, singing, “Pick me!! Pick me!!” I, too, have thawed and am bursting with unusual thoughts, occurrences, and revelations after a long, frozen, dry spell. Welcome back, dear Readers, and Happy Spring to you!

One of the most unusual experiences I have had in a long list of many strange and unusual experiences has to do with crystals. If this had not happened to me, I would have been hard pressed to accept it as a reality. Happen it did. I present my experience to you to read it, ponder it, examine it, test it, and perhaps to provide me with an explanation of what exactly occurred. Let us turn, then, to the story:

Some short time ago, a woman of my acquaintance, Lola, spoke to me glowingly of her crystal work, mentioning that she uses crystals in her capacity as a healer. Specifically, she spoke of Lemurian crystals, discussed extensively by a remarkable woman from the UK, one, Diana Cooper, who has written several books on this subject (see Links). According to Ms. Cooper, Lemurian crystals are 10 times more powerful than Reiki in the ability to heal, and were used by the Lemurians (in a civilization that pre-dated Atlantis) to heal the earth. These crystals are now available from mines in Brazil and can again be used for healing. As Lola waxed eloquent on this subject, adding that certain crystals spread heat through her palms when placed in her hand, I listened with an open but admittedly skeptical mind, since I had had no prior experience with any form of crystal work.

After a few minutes of explanation, Lola produced two small, flat boxes. She opened one to reveal a singularly unimpressive quartz crystal. Obviously rough-hewn, it measured approximately 3.5-4 inches in height, about 1.5-2 inches in width in the rough shape of an obelisk. Several of the faces were smooth, but much of the crystal was bubbly and coarse, much as it must have looked while still in the earth. The smooth faces stretched upward, coming to a rough point. Lola dropped it into my open left palm and immediately I experienced……………nothing. No warmth, no tingle, no gasp, no nothing.

Looking rather dumbly at this hunk of rock in my hand, I was suddenly inspired to pass my right palm over the top of the crystal, cupping it between my two hands, but without toughing my right palm to the crystal. As I did this, I felt a deep, low, electromagnet hum: WAHMP……WAHMP……WAHMP, repeated rhythmically, like the hum of a small, but mighty electric motor. I took my right palm away. The hum stopped. I returned my right hand; the deep-throated hum returned. In great surprise, I turned to Lola and asked her whether she had heard and felt this deep, electric throbbing. She said, “no”, that she had felt heat, but heard no hum. It felt to me as if there was a huge voltage across this crystal which had turned to current flow as I completed the circuit when my palms faced each other with the crystal between. Interestingly, there was no electric shock, just the very deep, electric hum. Taking the crystal from my palm, Lola chattered some more about crystals, how each one is tuned to the individual and that to pick one requires touching or being near to it, to observe one’s reaction. For her, since she feels heat, it is necessary to touch the crystal. Others can feel vibrations, or, in my case, an odd, electric throbbing.

My gaze turned to the second little box on the desk. Although up to this point, crystals had only been pretty colored rocks to me, now I was on fire to see this newest crystal. I couldn’t in politeness ask Lola to take it out and put it into my palm, but she was already removing the cover, as if in accord with my silent, unspoken request. This crystal was infinitely more interesting to me than the first, although I could not have given a rational reason for my heightened interest. Smaller than the first, it measured approximately 2.5-3 inches in height and, perhaps, 1/2 inch in diameter. It, too, was in the shape of an obelisk, but with more than 4 faces, all coming to a point. On one of the smooth faces, tiny horizontal marks, as if etched with a fine pin point or laser, lined the surface, nearly from top to bottom. It was these marks that drew my gaze. I knew from somewhere that these marks were information stored in this crystal, though how and why information would be on the crystal was a question that I could not answer. I held up my palm and Lola laid the crystal on it. As I turned away from her, toward my left, I immediately saw in my mind’s eye the curvature of the earth, close to the ground. In this incredible span of ground, approximately 1/8th of the circumference of the earth, I saw several of these crystals stuck into the ground—much like our high-voltage towers, angled so that their peaks pointed toward each other. Above the peaks, electromagnetic signals, or signals of this type of frequency, were being broadcast between the crystals, connecting them into a cohesive whole, sending some type of information.

Turning to Lola in awe, I tried to describe my vision to her, “I don’t know how to say this, but these crystals were connected and they were sending information in the form of some kind of energy that radiated from their tops”. Without batting an eyelash, Lola told me that, yes, indeed, these crystals had been planted in the earth by the Lemurians and the crystals had communicated between themselves for some purpose, purportedly to heal the planet. As she said this, goose bumps coursed all up and down my body, until I was almost resonating with them. I also knew that the crystal had much more to tell me, but that it would be impolite to go further with this discussion at this time. Reluctantly, I returned the small crystal to Lola and asked her whether the crystal had spoken to her, as well. She said that she would need to meditate on it, but to date, it had not shown her anything like what I had seen.

Then and there, I knew that my next and first stop would be at a crystal shop close by, where, interestingly enough, they sell Lemurian crystals. I can see the color and the number. They must all have the horizontal markings. I can see, too, that once one crystal is in my possession, I will be connected to all of the crystals on the planet and who knows what ancient information they will reveal.

That is my unusual experience. From regarding crystals as pretty, innocent, pointy hunks of rock, I am now aflame to storm that crystal shop and see what kinds of reactions I might receive from them. If any of you have had crystal experience or can recommend reading on this subject, please share it with us. It might contribute to the change in world consciousness which is currently proceeding at an every faster pace.
