As I was researching Mount Shasta I also had another lead into this magical mount via crystal healing. I BELIEVE very strongly in crystal energy and their power, new age hippy witch that I am. I now realise why the mother of all high quality crystals was called "the master crystal", Lemurian seed Quartz Crystals teach oneness, reminding us that while we are all individuals, we are also connected to each other, and that we are all equal in Spirit. Lemurian Quartz Crystals help us maintain our connection to Spirit, aiding spiritual evolution, and have been used successfully in dream work. So the 'belief ' is that these crystals were planted by the super beings in Lemuria ...hmmmmmmm. Any way it gets a little high on its own supply from then on but I love all that. The crystals, planted by super beings or not, are beautiful and amazing clear and powerful cult extra terrestrials or not, it seems all my roads lead to Mount Shasta at the moment.
