On Saturday, October 14, 2017 we hosted our first ever crystal party: Crystal Cabin Under the Moon. If you missed it, don’t worry! We’ve compiled a few resources and some fun photos to recap!
As the days counted down to the event we found ourselves with a growing to-do list of activities to set up and food to prepare. Thankfully many hands made light work of each project!
By 6:45 pm on the night of the event, guests had already started to roll in and were buzzing with excitement. We expected to host a small group of about twenty guests, but we ended up hosting more than double that amount! We saw crystal lovers of all ages and communities across Haida Gwaii!
Crystal Cabin was quickly filled with positive energy and friends sharing crystal stories over homemade canapes and seasonal berry tea. We had three crystal activities ready for guests to try. The first helped to identify crystals and their hidden codes. A second station taught guests to focus on their intention by using crystals and placing them onto grids. The third activity helped guests reconnect with their chakras by using crystals and the healing tones of crystal singing bowls.
The main question of the night: how do I know which crystal to choose? We broke this process down for our guests by asking a few questions and by using the information in the chart below. Our guests were soon able to channel their desires and choose crystals suited to their needs.
Here’s how you can do it too:
First, you must decide on your intention. Crystals can’t help unless you ask! Here are examples of some intentions and their corresponding crystals:
When in doubt, clear quartz crystal is the ultimate healer!
For some of our guests, it was their first time finding a crystal to suit their needs. We collected some information from our new crystal lovers to help them locate the crystal they needed.
How Do I Choose a Crystal?
Learning about the different metaphysical and healing properties of a crystal will help you to better understand its qualities, which you can then channel towards your higher self. Sometimes it can be hard to know how to choose the right crystal. How do you know? This is where your intuition comes in!
Choosing by First Sight
When you first see a range of crystals, one will catch your eye, and continue to draw your attention. There is a chance that this stone will be beneficial to you. In this case, you can trust your intuition. Sometimes, you may be overwhelmed by the choices and feel unable to tell which crystal first grabbed your attention. This may be a sign that you need to ground yourself first before picking a stone. Stand quietly with your eyes closed, and recall your reason for needing a crystal. When you open your eyes, allow yourself to find the one you are most drawn to. You may find that you are drawn to a particular shape or colour as well.
1. Look at a crystal and see if it vibrates with you. All crystals vibrate to their own frequency and some people are sensitive enough to feel these vibrations.
2. Hold a crystal in your hand and pay attention to what you feel. Some crystals might feel cold in your hand, some very warm. Some may give off a pulse of energy or a tingling sensation.
Using a Pendulum
1. Hold a pendulum over the top of a crystal.
2. Ask: Will this crystal be beneficial to me?
3. As the pendulum passes overtop, look for any circular motion in the pendulum, is it reacting to a particular crystal?
Choosing What’s Available to You
Another method to find a crystal is by choosing one that is most readily available to you. In this case, you will be "bonding" with the crystal and that itself helps to "tune" the crystal to your "vibration".
Receiving a Crystal
Crystals given as gifts are a precious experience. As you start to use crystals more, you may begin to find crystals (or maybe, they find you!) It is possible for these crystals to be just what you need at that given moment. If you lose a crystal, although this can be upsetting, it is usually an indication that the crystal has served its purpose in that situation and is no longer required.
What if I’m not drawn to a crystal?
Don’t worry! Your intent is crucial, and you may need to acknowledge that the time isn’t right. If nothing strongly appeals to you, then you may come back another day and perhaps a crystal will call to you.
To close the event, we ended with a mindful meditation led by Firyal, which left everyone feeling relaxed, balanced, and recharged.
We enjoyed your enthusiasm and beautiful smiles as you all found your perfect crystal. We hope you all had a wonderful time and learned something new!
Haawa (thank you) to everyone who helped to make this night a success! We look forward to hosting more fun events this fall and winter and would love to hear your input. Be sure to follow along on Facebook and Instagram for event updates.
