Are Crystals Living Organisms?
few years back my wife and I acquired a large and beautiful crystal of many shapes. It projected various colors, and
at times was so clear you could look into it and observe strange images. On other days the crystal became murky and even
turned grey. It was always changing.
had this crystal when we lived for a while with a Navajo medicine man, Raymond Begay and his wife. These people were fascinated
by this crystal. Raymond would stare into it and say that the crystal told him stories of its past.
discovered that the crystal would change color depending on its environment. When placed in a dish of sea salt it seemed to
regain its clarity. The natives told us to place it out of doors under a full moon to cleanse it of unwanted energies. I never
knew if this was true or not.
of the way this crystal behaved, and because it is known that crystals actually grow if left in the ground or in caves over
time, it occurred to me that they appear to be alive. Obviously other folks have had the same thought.
found a web site that attempted to glean an answer to this question. The most common response was that they are not alive.
The idea was that living creatures must be capable of reproduction, access food for energy and interact with the surroundings
to improve its situation.
what is to say that a crystal does not do all of these things? That crystals grow, and sometimes parts of them break off and
become new growing crystals suggest that they not only gain sustenance from the earth for growth, but can reproduce. That
they do this while in their natural environment in the earth suggests that they surely interact with their surroundings.
only difference is that crystals take a very long time to accomplish all of this. They appear to us to be no more than glistening
types of hard crystalline material. But they are very ancient. They are comprised of atoms that are filled with energy, just
like our bodies are. And they will someday die when the Mother Earth ends her existence in this solar system.
all aboriginal tribes in the world not only believe crystals are alive, they believe the Mother Earth is a sentient being
and goddess from whom we all emerged and from where we gain all sustenance for life. When you think about it, how can we argue
article by Mary Kurus states that “crystals come from within Mother earth. They are alive and intelligent, having the
intelligence of nature within every cell of their beings.”
Melchizedek, in his two-volume book The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, wrote that he not only believes crystals are
alive, but that they are conscious he has successfully communicated with them. He also believes crystals can affect people
they come in contact with in a variety of ways.
offered a personal story of being challenged to prove his belief by a class he was teaching in San Francisco. He said he gave
everyone in the class a pencil and paper, then produced a crystal that no one in the class had ever seen. He then instructed
each of an estimated 30 class members to place the crystal on their forehead and ask “Where are you from?” then
pass it on to the next person.
very first word that comes to mind was to be written down on the piece of paper and folded, so it could not be seen by anybody
else. “We passed that crystal around to thirty people, and everybody wrote down an answer. Then we looked to see what
we received. And every single person had “Brazil” written down,” Melchizedek wrote.
