The Crystal of the Day for Friday 20 September 2013 is the Barnacle Crystal, as it corresponds with today’s Planet, Venus. Barnacle crystals are recognised as crystals covered or partially covered with smaller crystals. A Barnacle Quartz crystal is described as “The random outside attachment of several to many smaller crystals to the host.” That is, barnacles are smaller crystals covering some part of a larger one. These are also called Fairy Dust crystals.The larger crystal is the “old soul” and contains the wisdom and trust which attracts the smaller crystals.
When you are trying to separate your own spirit from its relationship with others, and get in touch with your real spirit, use a Barnacle to aid in your efforts of self-knowledge and usefulness.
When you use the crystal, think of the barnacles on it as the things and relationships you have added to your life. Note they are not the main crystal, just as you are not the things you have added to your life.
Keep a Barnacle Crystal near to you. Let it constantly remind you keep a perspective on your relationships. It will help you learn to see yourself separately from your things and relationships.
A Barnacle is a good crystal to use in the beginning of a meditation session. It will help you find yourself – the first step in finding your future.
This crystal can be used in meditation to provide insights to family and/or community problems. The barnacle crystal is also excellent for those employed by service organisations [e.g., teachers, etc.]; the energy helps to stimulate a group cohesiveness and a willingness to work together. The crystal is a wonderful companion when one is experiencing the loss of a loved one. It can also be used to increase both physical and intellectual fertility.
