Many people have struggled with their attempts to feel the vibrations of quartz and other stones.
When you hold a piece of quartz in your hands, you can either grab it with your palm or clutch it with the tips of 5 fingers. Personally, I favor using the five fingers to hold and feel the stone. Fingers are more sensitive to the feeling of vibrations. And, the left hand is preferred; I term the left hand as receiving and right hand as projecting.
The first time you may not feel anything, maybe just the touch of a cool object with its weight putting pressure on your fingers. Do not feel disheartened. It took me three months of holding my first piece of quartz day and night before I could feel it positively.
Do some centering exercise – I recommend deep breathing of three breathes in, hold at the count of three and three breathes out in a set of six. Close your eyes when you perform this balancing exercise. Or, take a piece of labradorite and hold it in your receiving left hand for 10 minutes before you touch the target stone. I can help my students by using my energy to open up their hand minor chakras to enable them to feel the stone better.
Now, when you start to feel the stone in your hand, you may first experience its temperature and its weight. That is normal. Close your eyes and relax, instead of trying to push yourself so hard mentally. Next, you would find that the stone begins to stick to your fingers and there appears to be a suction effect as if gluing your fingers to the stone.
You may begin to feel some stirring sensations of the stone, and you suspect that you are feeling your own pulse rate. It is fine if you can feel your own pulse rate beating when holding your stone. At least, you are beginning to toddle in your first attempt.
Normally, I would encourage the person to try to feel his pulse by pressing the left hand’s index and middle finger on the outer edge of the right wrist (with the palm facing up). When he could positively sense the pulse rate, he should try pressing the thumb and index finger on the left hand together and try to feel the same pulse beating. If you still have difficulty in searching for the vibration of the pulse between your left index finger and your thumb pressing together, try to pinch your left thumb or left index finger hard, and feel the pain and its radiation. Press your thumb and index finger together and continue to feel the residual of the pain lingering on your fingers. After a few rounds repeating this exercise, you would begin to feel the pulse beating between your two fingers.
Now, when you hold the quartz between your thumb and index finger, beyond the pulse rate, you may feel another level of vibration from the stone which vibrates differently from your pulse beating rhythm. Sometimes, these vibrations are so faint that you could hardly notice them. Most quartz, properly cleansed, has uplifted and lively vibrations which are distinctively different from your pulse rate or heartbeat. Hold your attention longer to the vibrations of the quartz and they will become more accentuated until you feel them positively.
Some stones are light and some stones are heavy in vibrations. They normally follow the scale of the rainbow 7 colors – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet (or white). The red stones have heavier vibrations and the other stones progressively have lighter vibrations. I teach another method of feeling the stones using the chakra systems to sense them.
As a norm, stones, or even objects, which have negative vibrations, are heavier in feel. Remember that lower entities thrive in lower vibration realms – maybe they prefer the vibration of the lower scale red, orange or yellow. Their heavier vibrations are different from the vibrations of these original colors; the former has the repelling sensation, or needle pricking pains, sometimes making your solar plexus churn uncomfortably while the later though heavy in feeling have the pleasant feeling upon our touch.
Next, to consider is the strength of vibrations. Some stones are strong and some are weak in their vibration frequency. Some are so strong that they seem to numb your hand upon touch, while some are so light you can hardly feel them. Normally, a stone that has been blessed or magnetized by chanting has a higher strength of vibrations; though some are naturally strong by their natural constitution. Meteorite originated stones have these natural robust vibrations and they are favored stones for protecting against negativity.
I also teach the programming of stones which involves the discerning of the vibrations of emotion. I tell my students to hold each stone, one at a time, and try to project their thoughts into it. They are told to project a thought of a past happy event, and another a sad event. When they pick up those stones again to feel their vibrations, they notice that there is indeed a marked difference between the two. For the stone programmed with the happy memories, it is faster, lighter, livelier, and more pleasant to touch whereas the one which encapsulated the unpleasant past has those heavier, slower and unpleasant vibrations. Some students may be moved to tears when they touch the unhappy stone.
Besides, feeling the vibrations at the fingertips, we could also discover that the stone resonates with other parts of our body. One is the effect on our chakras depending on the type and color of the stones. But sometimes we may get the corresponding sensations in odd parts of our body like our shoulders, our forehead or our legs.
I have also taught the method of transference of energy; students are asked to hold and feel the vibrations of the stone in their left hand and will these vibrations to their right hand. After some practice, they should be able to feel the same vibrations, albeit less prominently, on their right hands. This is a fundamental step to teach my student how to tap the energy of stone with their left receiving hand and project it out via the right projecting hands.
Besides using our hands to feel the quartz and stones, at a more advanced level we could use our eyes to look at them and pick up their vibrations. And, space and time dimensions become non-barriers, as we could feel the quartz and stones by looking at them even they are in photographs. We could even pick up their vibrations when we recall from our memory bank how they look like.
Or, we could even use our whole body to feel and pick up their vibration frequencies. To be more precise, we are using our pores to sense them. Remember when you go to a natural enclave of quartz and natural stones, and the first experience would be the overpowering or uplifting vibes in the air. You are feeling the whole community of these stones in the proximity. The same goes for your experience when you first step into a rock shop. You may unconsciously, or consciously, feel with your skin first the collective vibrations of the different stones in the shop.
