Tapping Into the Magick of Atlantis With Crystals and Meditation
What is the Lost Civilization of Atlantis?
Atlantis is a word that is brought up often in mythology. We hear it on the Television and read about it as a setting for fictional books. NatGeo and History channel have produced shows in which archaeologists search for the "lost city". But what is Atlantis, exactly? And why are people searching for it?
In legend, Atlantis is said to have been a civilization that existed thousands of years ago, tens of thousands of years before the time of Christ. There is much speculation as to how big Atlantis was, who the residents were, and whether or not the place actually existed. People are still fascinated by the idea of Atlantis, and many people seek to tap into its ancient power...be it pure myth or legitimate history.
A Little on the History of Atlantis
As far as we know, Atlantis was first mentioned in Plato's work Timaeus and Critias written in 360 B.C. According to Plato, this was a civilization that sought to conquer ancient Greece but failed and was eventually destroyed by the gods in a catastrophe of fire and water. Some people have taken this as a sure sign that Atlantis indeed existed, while others say it is pure myth and should be regarded as such. When looking deeper into Plato's story, some sources claim that Plato heard it from Solon who in turn heard the story from Egyptian priests. The Egyptian priests were said to have read it from ancient Egyptian text. Which is interesting because there are people in modern times who believe after the fall of Atlantis, many of the survivors established new civilizations...one of which we now call ancient Egypt.
There is speculation that ancient texts describing Atlantis and its fall are still in existence today, perhaps hidden in places all over the world. One of those places might be under the Great Sphinx itself. It was said that Thoth, now considered an Egyptian god, was once a priest of Atlantis and he hid some of the texts under the Sphinx for future generations to find. Unfortunately, no one is allowed to dig under the Great Sphinx today (coincidence?)
So if Atlantis' descendants survived its fall thousands of years ago, where did they all go? Some say they have spread out all over the world...perhaps you are a descendant! Most scholars and scientists discredit the concept of Atlantis, stating that Plato made up the story as sort of a lesson for humanity against greed and selfishness. But there are other oceanographers, historians, and archaeologists who believe Atlantis did exist in one form or another and are even searching for it today.
How to Connect with the People of Atlantis
For those who believe Atlantis existed, whether on this plane or the spiritual, we are still able to tap into the magick that it once beheld. One way to do this is to connect with the people of Atlantis through the spiritual realm.
Thoth, now known as an ancient Egyptian god, was said to have come from Atlantis. He was originally a priest in the civilization of Atlantis who taught balance between the mundane and the spiritual. When he reincarnated as Hermes Trismegistus, he wrote the Emerald Tablets, detailing the rise and fall of Atlantis. He is also credited with having established the first civilizations in Ancient Egypt. How do we connect with Thoth? Start by researching his history as it pertains to Egypt. Ask him to show you signs of his presence. Typically he will send particular animals as signs and messages. He also likes to show up in dreams.
The great wizard and sage known as Merlin is said to have lived in Atlantis thousands of years ago. He reincarnated as Merlin during the age of Avalon and Camelot. Most likely he had a different name as an Atlantean. To connect with Merlin, you can study Atlantis and Avalon and the lessons they each have to teach us in modern times. Meditate and ask Merlin to show himself to you and bring whatever messages he may have. You can also read the stories of King Arthur to learn more about Merlin's more recent incarnation.
Yes, mermaids were said to have had a connection with Atlantis. They were said to have been people descended from another ancient civilization called Lemuria. Unfortunately these half-fish/half-human creatures were experimented on and exploited towards the end of the Atlantean civilization, which is said to have been one of the reasons Atlantis fell. In order to connect with mermaids' energy, visit the ocean or any body of water. Take care of the water...clean up the shoreline, etc. You can also go for a swim, or take a cleansing bath. Immerse yourself in the water and imagine what it might be like to be a mermaid.
How to Use Atlantean Crystals
Some say the only records we have of Atlantis exist in crystals . . . crystals that were programmed with messages from the Atlanteans themselves. While this seems ridiculous, perhaps these messages an be seen on a spiritual plane...or via meditation with crystals. We have to remember that in today's day and age, most of us only see and feel things on a mundane level...or at least that's what has been programmed into our heads. That there is only this physical plane and no spiritual. But when Atlantis was at its height of spiritual awareness, they existed in the spiritual plane 50% of the time. So perhaps these messages in the crystals can be accessed on the astral plane moreso than the physical.
You can use any type of quartz crystals to try to access the Atlanteans' lessons and texts. Some examples of Atlantean crystals include: amethyst, phantom quartz, orange calcite and clear quartz. Quartz crytals were the easiest to program with information, according to various sources. If you do not have any of these crystals, you can purchase them for a decent price online at websites like etsy or even amazon. Choose a crystal that seems to "call out" to you.
Once you have the crystal in your hands, close your eyes and let its energies reach out to you. You will feel heat, coolness, vibrations or tickling sensations coming from the crystal. This is how you know its working. If you hold the crystal long enough and meditate on its energies and lessons, you just might receive a vision as to the information withheld inside. Some people even hear a message in their heads. Some people meditate on the crystal and gaze inside of it, as they claim certain pictures and shapes will take form within the crystal itself. You can try either or both methods to tap into the magick of Atlantis.
Meditation and Dreams
Probably the most efficient way to tap into the magick of Atlantis is to go there via meditation or trancework. You can find guided meditations online or you can create your own guided meditation to travel into the lost civilization of Atlantis and beyond. Tip: always be sure to cleanse yourself first before attempting to travel into the astral plane, and ask your guides to protect you during your spiritual journey. Meditation and trancework are two of the oldest methods of spiritual journeying and have been used for thousands of years by shamans and wise people, etc. to access higher levels of information and to travel to spiritual realms.
Another way to visit Atlantis and tap into its magick is by going there in a dream. Yes, daydreams count but I recommend becoming adept to lucid dreaming and attempting to travel there while in your dream-time. It is quite easy to do this if you get good at it. Don't forget to write down your experiences once you've visited...I want to hear about them!
