View Full Version : crystals over my pillow?
do you experts think that it'll help my wellbeing if i have a bag filled with seasalt, and some crystals hanging over my sleeping space or even underneath my pillow? that way it could balance out while i sleep?
just curious :)
I would think it better to sleep with jade and brass and close to the body for well being. It really leeches out the bad quite well while you are sleeping. Not "evil" negative, just more like destructive free radicals which disrupt the pure function of the the body and soul. "Bloodstone" could really help as well - and I have some nice palm wands of Goldstone (crystallized copper) that work great for conductivity to hematite as well when needed. I use them for batteries - or to loan people energy if they have to vamp it. It still amazes me some people choose to cut themselves off from the higher sources, but wever.
But mostly for my bedding field, I use
blue "tigers" eye (known as Hawk's eye)
blue and gold lapis lazuli
red and gold jasper
pure gold (18kt)
The Gold, Silver, Ivory, Marble and Onyx I wear. The result is I need little sleep, and feel totally relaxed about it. My sleep is *total* but if somethng comes in my field, I feel it entirely.
Jasmine, Rose, Sandalwood, and a Eucalpytus plant work well for vegetable components. These (J,R,S) I would put in a pouch for overhead. Lavendar and Cedar, and Rosemary also smell great in the actual bed in a herb pillow or pouch!
But hanging salt, not really what I would do. Put a small rock crystal of Sea Salt, in the palm for 15 minutes. Visualize a yellow cube all around you. Use a card with a yellow square on it if it helps. Then let the small salt absorb the whole yellow cube and dissolve it in hot water. dispose of the water with respect and the cares of the day with it. This is what salt does, it is not "disrespectful" to the salt. Keeping salt in a pouch it cannot really do what it does to a stone, basically capture impurities as they show forth in the light refracted through, and reflected from, the stone.
Of course, you have shown here you are willing to rightfully earn the title "aeclectic", and will make any suggestion your own in what you do, and I would love to hear what you decide!
I have crystals next to the bed- on the bedside table namely rose quartz
Thanks for your advice, :)
What I have so far is....
in a dark, tight-netted yet, see through bag:
a small spoonful of salt
two tiger's eyes
1 large Ameythist chunk raw
2 clear quartz crystals, one thats point and one that's stubby (it almost looks like glass)
and a few small pieces of amber.
Basically, I need to get back in the swing of things spiritually. Next week I'm going to try to clean out and organize my room and try to focus and fix my chakra's. I dont know, it's like, ever since I started school, I developed this spiritual block and I need to get it removed. What I need to do is just take some time alone to refocus on myself.
I'm taking notes from you Bright crazy.

is pink quartz similar to rose quartz?
is pink quartz similar to rose quartz?
I don't know, but I would think so?
If there is a crystal that you are especially drawn to you could also charge it specifically for sleeping. I have a quartz sphere that it charged for sleeping that I think does help (and occasionally aids with dreams from the ancestors) :)
I actually put a big pile of crystals on my nightstand next to my bed and I think it's doing some help I think. I try to hold my obsidian and do breathing exercises before bed. I imagine I breathe in clear light and breathe out an inky black smoke of negativity. seems to be helping out i think, The heavy spring cleaning I did this past weekend helped too.
I would be careful with the hematite in that bag.
They could be too ferrous and eat into the fabric or the iron .
Besides, if you are using it for what I think, Magnesium Iron Silicate Hydroxide (Serpentine) works MUCH better. It is a more stable iron base crystal that Iron Trioxide (Hematite), as long as it doesn't get left outside, which is why it doesn't rust like some hematite can.
The *real* powerful hematite is iron rich, and red, not black pretty mirror stone. This is the actual "blood stone" spoken of back in the day, with such a high iron content it would oxidize, and release a martial quality not often as powerful in the modern samples (unless you know where to get the good stuff). This stone is Martial, not mercurial. It is not a negative energy sapper.
Both have Iron, and Oxygen, and are good for the blood and respiratory system, but Serpentine also has magnesium, most of which is born of supernovas, and making 1/3 of all dissolved base elements in the sea. This is far more perfect for the drain you may think - being more like Mars, dissolving back into the waters of creation that symbolize the supernal mother.
Depending on the serpentine, it can be very likely to be eroded by water, especially if there is ay or high trace amounts of sulfates in it. Magnesium Sulfate is "epsom salt." So the salt will help keep the moisture from acting upon the stone.
BTW, the see through bag is a good idea, and of course, one I again never thought of!
I agree with Brightcrazystar and Minrice, because I often sleep with a small Serpentine sphere and it helps a lot to remember my dreams.
I use “Noble Serpentine”, that is often sold with the name of “New Jade”; it is translucent and has a pale green colour.
Magnesium is a very relaxing element and it is important for my health in general.
I practice the same respiratory exercise that you describe, and I think that it is a very good way to overcome nervousness and every kind of problem. Surely Serpentine will help for this.
Hey guys, sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I am cleansing my stones with the "Supermoon" tonight and I think that'll help out a lot. I also got Black and Yellow obsidian recently and just today I found a Serpentine stone that I liked, so we'll see how they go. I also got a little bag to carry around my neck for them.
I noticed once I started to actively carry them around with me, it felt there was this shield around me. is there anything else that you could suggest? I think someone did a psychic attack on me Thursday because I woke up just drained and felt like it was just a horrible day. Like, nothing seemed to be going right and I ended up skipping my second class because of it. I am trying to relax and keep myself in a positive light but I want to protect myself from whatever that was. Or maybe I just woke up on the wrong side. I don't know. I don't like it! >:[
new heads up:
Black Tourmaline is the new black. I never looked much into it, because it seemed to have little capacity for absorbing negativity. Then today, at Off The Beaten Path, my favorite local shop, I had an amazing transaction with the owner on hand Elena Pugh. I had bought a lot of thing today, and stones incuded Flourite sphere, Quartz cut Dodecahedron, Quartx Cut Icosohedron, a Hematite Heart for a friend. She really knows her stuff! I am not her, and I don't get paid, but every time I feel the need to go to that shop I make progress in my current endeavors in some way.
As I was leaving, I guess I spent enough to get the real reason I was there, lol. She told me "You should check out black tourmaline" and I was about to say "it doesn't absorb well for me." But she and I had been speaking about periodic elements and magickal properties (we both agree there is something to it, and might share notes on it) while I was being rang up. Before I could share my opinion, she gave me a tip (which some of you may know):
First a bit about Tourmaline. If you heat it, it actually recieves a measurable electrical charge. It literally makes heat into electricity. It was called "schorl" /hS-koorl/, which means "drinks ash" in Proto-Germanic. So I always looked for it as a negative eater. Not so.
She told me it works well for "shields" - I tried it, and it reacted perfectly to everything that was with me. I suddenly in the center of a perfectly visible black tetrahedron, which began to fill with fire. I had a piece of flourite (Calcium Flouride) and hematite (Iron Oxide) with me, and the combination of this - Fluorospar (Stone the River bears) DRANK in that fire and the Hematite (Blood Stone) became a battery that fed back into the Tourmaline. It was a closed loop perpetual forcefield that required the barest of jump starts!
I checked and tourmaline can do this with ANY two binary minerals, as long as one in an oxide (hematite being the most common) This is a relationship that exists between Black Tourmaline and Oxygen, I am sure of it.
The quartz cut dodecahedron and icosohedron along with a FANTASTIC tourmaline sample cut and tumbled from a single crystal to a tooth with a hole drilled completely through it, a flourite sphere that is almost white, a hematite heart, and I can truly see how these work well. The quartz cut in shapes of Spirit and Water formed union with the fire and the flourite in the middle. making it all ground safely into the rest of my energy field - IT WAS FEEDING ME perpetually, merging right back into my own morphogenic bioelectric field (the aura indepedent of egoic elements). It was my own power converter just asking me to plug into it. I was given a glyph to plug into it, and I traced the glyph, only mentally.
It activated my Svaddisthana chakra and the energy began to flow into me, and actually took in so much energy this way (a stress test) that I collapsed sick and nausious and passed out after retching. I was knocked out long enough to fall asleep for four hours. It was still going and still is. The tourmaline is not shielding me, it is actually forming the structure of a superconductor. Unfortunately I didn't realize that I was standing inside it when I turned it on. Then I sat inside to see how much I could withstand. I have never met a single stone or grouping I could not handle until now. I don't know if all the components are necessary, but that was intense. I dont recommend doing it, unless you need great power. I had nothing to put it in, and when the energy shfted the whole studio apartment was observed to be like 17 degrees cooler.
4 hours later, I woke up completely refreshed, and CLEAN, no negativity in the room at all. It is super handy, and I am working on making it a pretty talisman for the bed, but don't stay plugged in longer than you can stand it.
I think I might find a way to store a copper silicate alkali. If I add some flint and some alkali like basalt, and I could turn it on and off with gold.
I even forsee a way to use nickel oxide tubing to contain it.
As with my work, as the intellectualizing comes after the effect. It is the exercise of the soul of reason and intuition in harmony. I am sharing early findings, but I have been wanting to make a new cross-system high magick staff. I think it is comig together quite nicely with such a stone compliment.
and I mention this because I think you might benefit from experiementing with tourmaline in your sleep pouch
How can you tell the difference between black tourmaline and onyx/polished obsidian/ etc?
lately i have been carrying quartz, a small rough obsidian, Serpentine, and Carnelian with me and, I dont know, I have been feeling more energetic. it feels a little chaotic, like I have this energy now that I haven't been used too in a long time and I think it's just I have to get used to it again. I have been feeling happier than I had in months though :).
also, something interesting happened today. I was hanging out with my friends at the local tourist spot (because there is little else to do in our town) and I was looking at this table that had Native American wares on it. These were all handmade by the man who ran the table and elderly man who comes from a long line of healers and shamans (he himself is a shaman). He told me that I should just carry around the carnelian and he gave me a river stone from these hot springs in Arizona (where he's from I think), to carry around with me. So that's pretty neat, right?
I have a Selenite Angel grid under my bed made up of 4 Selenite crystals. Selenite is said to attract Angelic energies and I alway get a good nights sleep.
