What are crystals and what are their purpose? All crystals have their own properties, benefits and energy. They can be used to alter your mood, energy, routine or mindset.
I put the powers of crystals to the test by asking Ms. Fernández (Ms.Fern), Mr. Symkowick-Rose (Mr.Syr) and Mr. Capogreco (Cap) if they wanted to wear crystals for a few days and see if it had any effect on them or not. I chose these teachers because I felt that they would be interested and thankfully they were. Mr. Syr is a religion teacher and has an open mind to all religions/cultures . Cap and Fern both teach Spanish, meaning they know a lot about and are native to the whole spiritual aspect of the culture, like Dia de Los Muertos and connecting with loved ones even though they’re in the afterlife.
Ms.Fern said she was anxious, energy drained, stressed and overwhelmed with life/the quarter ending. “Outside of school, definitely overwhelmed, so many things going on. I just want to stop and pause, trying to be everywhere at once. It’s energy draining,” she said. So I gave her jasper, clear quartz and amethyst, crystals that are supposed to bring harmony, clarity, and alignment to any situation concerning health and wellness.
After a few days, I went back and talked to Ms.Fern, who had a good interaction with the crystals and actually wants to know more about them.
“I was definitely more at peace, if that makes sense, like more calm. I was more okay with things, like expectations, being okay not having or meeting my own expectations. I held myself accountable too much, so it was definitely like, ;’m not gonna die if I don’t do this’”.
The second teacher I asked was Mr. Syr, who didn’t have much knowledge about crystals but was willing to give it a shot. He said that he feels happy, and organized/content with himself, so I gave him some amethyst, clear quartz and purple agate, which bring forth a peace of mind, focus and luck. Mr. Syr had taken them over the weekend when he said he had a big garden project that usually takes a long time. As opposed to Ms.Fern, Syr felt a difference in his work than emotions.
“I worked for 8 hours Saturday and Sunday. I felt super energized, but that’s also how I relax. I felt focused, energized and very relaxed in the process,” the religion teacher said. “I felt like everything fell into place, and usually when I do these projects, something goes wrong”.
Lastly, Cap said he felt frustrated, constant anxiety and stress. Cap said he did have some knowledge but not too much about crystals and that he’s carrying around a crystal that a cousin gave him a while ago. I gave Cap smoky quartz, clear quartz, and amethyst, which help with positivity, grounding, and protection. At first, Cap kept forgetting to keep the crystal on his person, but stuck to the task in the end. Cap said he didn’t really feel different afterwards and kept overthinking the properties of the crystals. Due to his overthinking, he wasn’t quite sure if he felt different afterwards or not.
So what are crystals? They can enhance your emotions and energy. As much as you want them to solve your prblems, they can’t. But they can help guide you to what you want or what you need in your life. If you are spiritual or would like to be more spiritual, then I would say try learning about crystals and see what happens.
