If you’ve ever had the opportunity to see a Rainbow in crystal, it is a beautiful thing!
You might have exclaimed “Wow! Rainbows in crystals!” and wondered “what are they and how do I work with them!?”
If so, you’re in luck. We’ll talk a little about that in this blog post.
Let’s start by looking at some!
WHAT DO RAINBOWS REPRESENT METAPHYSICALLY?
In a nutshell, they represent hope and optimism.
A description I read long ago which I liked was: “Rainbows are a gift from the Spirit Keeper of the crystal”.
I liked it because the saying is so poetic and concise. But I didn’t take the part about the Keeper 100% literally. There is much more to this concept so I made a separate blog post about it, here.
Regarding the reference to the “Spirit Keeper” of the crystal: The “Spirit Keeper” might be described as the crystalline energy and consciousness of crystal interacting with the physical vehicle or body of crystal, and hence the description of there being a Spirit Keeper is very accurate if you take it in this context.
Thank you, Venus!
WHAT DO RAINBOWS MEAN, ENERGETICALLY?
At any rate, they carry a happy joyous energy and are uplifting. It is like finding a special surprise in the crystal that is there just for you!
I say it this way because normally seeing a Rainbow requires us to interact with the crystal in order to SEE the Rainbow (we must turn it to get the light in such a way that the it “appears” for us), therein lies the “gift”! Of course, it is ever present, but we don’t see it until we interact with the crystal.
The crystal says, “Oh, hello! a gift for you!”
WHAT DOES A RAINBOW MEAN, METAPHORICALLY?
As we discussed earlier, Rainbows are usually caused (physically) by some sort of damage to the inside of a crystal. Either physical damage: such as out-of-the-Earth dropping, or inside-the-Earth movement from quakes and shakes.
Sometimes they’re caused by shocks or traumas such as extreme temperature changes.
Metaphysically, it represents how external pressures (physical or emotional) create an area for a Rainbow to appear.
Without having experienced the damage, the Rainbow wouldn’t have had the opportunity to be formed, so wouldn’t be able to lift us.
The same can be said for our human traumas, shocks and challenges.
Once the trauma is complete and we are on the healing side of it, we may have to “turn” our trauma about a bit. Get a different look at it, in bright light. Twist the experience around and look beneath the forming scars to find the gift or the rainbow.
I know it is true for me, (with the benefit of hindsight) major traumas in my life have always brought unexpected gifts with them. The gifts weren’t always obvious at first blush. I had to get out the bright light and turn the experience about a bit.
WHAT ABOUT RAINBOWS BETWEEN FUSED CRYSTALS?
There are also Rainbows which appear on the surface between two closely connected (fused) crystals.
Metaphorically, this can represent how a relationship with a closely-attached-other can bring us gifts or bonuses. Often the fusing of the two crystals produces a surface on which Rainbows like to ride.
If the crystals become unfused (which is what leaves behind crystal Imprints), the Rainbow disappears. It is the interaction between the fused crystals that produces the beauty of the Rainbow.
The bottom line is the relationship with the closely-attached-other creates an area to be explored and honored while the two are connected.
LET’S LOOK AT SOME MORE PICTURES:
Ahhhhh. So soothing…
I feel happier already!
I hope you have found some insight about Rainbows in crystals after reading this post.
Consider twisting and turning your crystals in bright light to look for possible Rainbows.
If you’re not sure where to start, typically, you will find them in crystals which are Empathic. Empathic crystals are those which are chipped, dinged or damaged in some way. Remember I said lots of crystals which have sustained damage will also have Rainbows.
Crystals which have sustained the most trauma tend to have some incredible beauty, caused by that very trauma!
Use this as a metaphor to tip and turn your human traumas to look for the gifts the challenges brought you. Look at the space between you and your closely-attached-others to see if there is a gift riding there, waiting for you to discover it while you are still connected.
If you are looking for crystals that have Rainbows, you might find something that resonates with you here.
Do you have a Rainbow experience to share? We’d love to read it in the comments!
