Quartz comes in a nearly infinite variety of forms,
and each has its particular lesson to teach and assistance
to offer for our spiritual journeys.
One of these is Faden Quartz. Faden is a German word meaning
thread, and these crystals are characterized by the white,
threadlike lines running through them. Many are also Tabular
(flat), and consist of joined crystals with the line running
through them. The lines indicate what is commonly called
a self-healed crystal. Such crystals are formed in the midst
of shifts in the earth surrounding them which cause them
to break, then reheal.
People who have gone through their own healing processes,
whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, are those most
empowered to encourage others to heal themselves.
Self-healed crystals play a similar role. They are generally
very powerful when used for healing on all levels because
they contain within them the pattern of their own healing.
These crystals embody the energy of white light, and are
especially useful for meditation. They are best used in
conjunction with a grounding stone such as Hermatite,
Tourmaline, or Tiger's
Eye. If you work with Faden Quartz on a regular
basis you may begin to feel connected to angels, especially
your personal guardian angel. This effect can be enhanced
by placing Angelite on the throat chakra.
Healing usually involves release of energy blockages, and
I feel this is the case with faden quartz. This release
can often be emotional in nature, and you may find it helpful
to focus on the energies of frog, the animal who summons
the healing energies of both rain and tears.
Allow yourself whatever emotions arise in your own healing
process. Be grateful for tears if they come. They are part
of your own renewal.
