Smoky Quartz

This month’s topic from HIWVibrational Energy 101 (Third Eye)

In the Reiki and general esoteric communities, we talk a lot about “energy.” If you are already interested spiritually, already familiar, or working in these fields, that term is likely a no brainer. But what about those new to this term, to those just awakening. What do the words vibration and energy mean, not from a dictionary, but how do we intend them to be interpreted?

For me this terminology refers to my overall ‘being.’ What I perceive in myself and how I am perceived by others. Am I feeling good, well, happy, smiling, stable, balanced, even joyous? Or maybe a bit bleh, or meh, a bit down, tired, emotional, maybe even depressed? Believe me I have been, and can still on occasion, describe myself as feeling all of these. Where I want to be is on those higher, feeling better, feeling good, levels of energy and emotion (vibration).

How do I get there? Tools, many of them. Being aware of my thoughts and that they pass, yes really, they do. That’s the first thing. There have been times when my mind has glommed onto a thought, believed it, got on the hamster wheel and half my day been eaten up with believing that one thought! What do I try to do these days? NOT that. Ha Ha. I know that sounds easy but I still have to work at it. I have my usual practices, all of which you may well be bored of hearing about by now. However and – they work. Journalling, meditation, and grounding are key for me. After that I have my Al-Anon slogans and the Serenity Prayer. And of course – my stones & crystals. Just last month I was talking about Carnelian and the idea of “Staying grounded & raising your vibration may sound contradictory…”

I chose Smoky Quartz this month because my go to source for metaphysical information on stones, Judy Hall, says this, “Smoky Quartz is one of the most efficient grounding & anchoring stones & at the same time raises vibrations during meditation.”

Smoky Quartz Pendulum Raising your vibration, for me, equates to feeling better, lighter, well, happy, peaceful, serene, and in flow. Smoky Quartz can help me with all of those. “This stone is a superb antidote to stress & assists us in tolerating difficult times with equanimity, fortifying our resolve. It helps also with grounding our spiritual energy into the body & gently neutralizing negative vibrations. Can relieve fear, lift depression, & bring emotional calmness.”
