When Crystals Break

Sometimes a crystal will break. This may happen during a treatment, when the crystal is dropped, because of changes in the atmosphere etc.
 It can be quite a shock when one of the beloved crystals break which can make it more difficult for us to listen and tune in to the intuitive knowing of what the crystals needs and mission is now. Sometimes this happens as part of the release of energy during a treatment. My experience is that the parts continue to have a mission though that probably will have changed.

On other lists there have been a number of posts from different people in recent days about crystals that have suddenly broken .
There have been responses to these posts which seem to place blame shame and or announce this as an omen of worrisome dangers and
threats upon the crystal keeper or upon the world in general. Some people even suggested major exsorsimish type stuff I beg to differ (
actually I was going to say b--ls--t but that seems inelegant).

The posts from people whose crystal was broken started with statements like "I got out of the Hot shower and turned on the air
conditioning and Suddenly my crystal broke" , "I set my crystal on the sink counter and spilled my tea on it and suddenly my crystal broke "
"I dropped it onto the tile floor and suddenly my crystal shattered" and even It was over 100 outside so I came in and stood in the open
freezer and the crystal on my neck suddenly shattered " .well, DUH! This kind of thing does not indicate emotional chaos nor portend disaster
it reflects the nature of crystal which can indeed shatter when exposed to sudden changes in temperature and or when struck upon hard objects.
Common sense might have prevented these occurrences but sometimes crystals break even when you have taken excellent care of them and they
have not been put under any stress physical or psychic. Crystals often have cracks and bubbles etc and react to subtle changes in atmospheric
pressure etc. I hope that we all look first for ordinary causes in this and other situations rather than first leaping to the conclusion
that the sky is falling .

I have had crystal break sometimes when my life has been stressful , sometimes when the crystal has been working a lot and just as often for
no apparent reason at all . It happens. Sometimes it seems that the crystal simply has more missions and has in effect become two or more
crystal beings. I do not usually bury the pieces though sometimes with tiny fragments they seem to want to be in the garden I do not engage in
major purification rituals not rites of repentance as some on these other lists have suggested.

Some people think that when a crystal breaks  it  means that the crystal has "died" or that it is an omen of some difficulty ahead  others think that the crystal may have absorbed too much energy  and or been overworked.
Others feel that a crystal has broken at a time of great change and transition in their livesand point out that transition to them.

Many of the older crystal healing books and magickal stories would have it that a broken  crystal must be burried  in earth or  discarded in running water. My experience differs  and I strongly feel that these drastic  reactions are nor  needed nor in the best interest of the people and  crystals involved .
While some teachers say that the points must be perfect and un marred that has not been my experience as far as minor chips and breaks. In
fact chipped crystals may help you with more healing , compassion and sensitivity than "perfect" ones . We ourselves are chipped and dinged
and effected by our passage through life.This is part of the process of  spiritual evolution for all beings.

  The crystal is not ruined and does not usually need to be buried or anything like that.


Sometimes a crystal will break so that it can be shared with other people  and has broken/split into brother/sister crystals   so the each person involved  can have the presence of that crystal being.
Sometimes a crystal has shattered and the pieces may be placed in a garden or woods etc. if that really feels like what you are guided to do . I've known people who felt guided  to take crystal fragments  to places of historic battles or place them in graveyards etc. where they will continue to work on the healling of the energies and of the people  who come to the area.
