Crystal Shapes and their Energy Influences
Updated: Nov 19, 2019
Crystals can come in a variety of different shapes!
The shape is an important aspect to keep in mind when choosing the right crystals for you or someone else!
When choosing a crystal, we may think about what energies we wish to gain and be influenced by.
The first thing to consider is the shape. How do you wish your crystal energy to influence you? There are 4 main shapes to consider. Each shape has a different effect in regards to the focus and intensity of energy in which it is channeling for healing.
- 4 Main Shapes of Crystals -
~Single Terminated crystal point~ "Are six-sided with a flat bottom and point at the top. Focus energy on a concentrated point. Helps to focus on the best path to travel in breaking old habits or establishing new ones.” Direct and focus energy in a specific area or chakra.
~Double Terminated crystal point~ "Are a special occurrence in nature. They can draw energy as well as direct it. The center of the crystal works like a neutralizing chamber. One of the points draws negative energy inside, where it is transformed and purified. The energy then passes out of the crystal through both points. It shows us that the most efficient energy comes from our own center.”
~Sphere~ Radiates energy more or less equally in all directions. A sphere will output energy that will fill a room instead of only being directed at a specific area. This shape “symbolically represents a sense of oneness, wholeness, completion, karma, and respect for cyclical energies.”
~Pyramid~ Can generate or amplify energy. “They are built for storing and charging energy.” This shape is “also used to enhance and focus the inherent properties of the stone it is cut from.” Pyramids focus the energy of your intention and a great to use in manifestation.
Each shape offers a unique energy influence! Determine what you wish to get out of your crystal and how you want the energy to be distributed. Ask yourself what intentions you have and wish to make. Get clear on what areas of your life need energy. What are you trying to healing? The shape is important when choosing the right crystal for you or someone else, but equally as important is the color! Stay tuned for our next blog on crystal colors and their energy influence!
