:Guardian Crystals Explained
Guardian Crystals - from the Monoclinic Crystal System
Guardians - protecting you, your family, and your dreams
When you have something you want to protect use a crystal that forms in the monoclinic system. These Guardian crystals have an internal structure that is composed of parallelograms. The parallel structure of their crystalline lattice gives these crystals their power to protect us in the physical world and in the spiritual one. The Guardian talismans do not reveal their inner strength. These stones rarely, if ever, form transparent crystals. Rather, they hide their strength behind an opaque mask, obscuring the power they possess.
In the physical world they are excellent aids in protecting your loved ones, your possessions, and your physical security. They are very useful in protecting houses and homes, property, and valuables. If you have prized possessions you want to guard and protect, use a Guardian crystal. They are also useful for travelers and adventures to take with them on their travels as insurance against harm. They are useful for emergency workers, soldiers, sailors, and airmen in the performance of their dangerous duties.
In the spiritual world, the Guardian crystals have several special uses. They first serve to guard your beliefs against doubt. Everyone at some point begins to doubt some of his or her most cherished beliefs. That doubt can grow and affect our lives. A Guardian crystal can help you keep true to your ideals and beliefs. The Guardian crystals can also protect your spirits. If you anticipate a trying and difficult, even stressful future, a Guardian can be very effecting in aiding your efforts to maintain your disposition, sense of humor, and respect for others.
The minerals that form in this monoclinic system are also known as the Dreamholders. They often appear to have a hazy surface as if there is something veiled from our sight just beneath the surface. This is best observed in the Moonstone. This stone, being a Dreamholder, is a particularly powerful mineral when used to aid you in focusing your energy to hold onto your dreams.
