"Marcel Vogel (1917-1991) was with IBM for 27 years doing research and development. A respected authority on crystals had placed the power of crystals firmly in the scientific domain. He suggested that the key to understanding this ancient knowledge lay in the connection between the vibrations sent out by the human mind and the perfect inner structure of crystals. Vogel was prompted to develop his investigations into crystal healing by working with liquid crystals in the laboratory. After leaving IBM, Vogel continued his research on the use of quartz crystals and their ability to heal people. He was dedicated to intensive research into healing energies, especially those of various shapes of quartz crystals."
Marcel tried many different shapes for cutting crystals – six-sided, single terminated, double terminated, and so on. But he had had a vision of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. And although he didn't know what that meant at the time, he kept returning to this shape. Eventually, it became the four-sided underlying pattern for what is now known as the Vogel-cut® crystal.
Why Use Vogel Crystals for Healing
The purpose of using a Vogel crystal is to amplify and cohere the thought and energy that you wish to direct into your body/mind or that of another person.
Amplification we can understand, but coherence is a somewhat difficult concept in physics terms. Simply put, however, at least where light is concerned, coherence is the property exhibited by lasers. If you take ordinary light and make it coherent, what you end up with is a laser beam!
So the thought and energy we put into a Vogel crystal not only becomes amplified, but incredibly concentrated and focused. Literally, a Vogel crystal adds to our intent the power of a laser beam.
We can begin to understand why Marcel Vogel might have seen danger in this technology.
Why Not All ''Vogels'' are Vogels
In order to measure the energy that a crystal was putting out, Marcel developed a radionic device known as the Omega 5. The benchmark ''rate'' on this device for a Vogel crystal is 454. Even very powerful uncut crystals might have only a 333 rating. Other shapes, he found, have different, mostly lesser values, and all are different from authentic Vogels.
Working With Your
Because Marcel used scientific instruments to measure his results, he was able to develop an entire technology in the handling, clearing, and programming of crystals. Rumi Da has shared some of this with us, and we include this information for those of you who would like to try to incorporate it into your work – whether for self-healing or in helping others.
Many texts say that you should use salt, or salt water to cleanse most crystals. Marcel felt otherwise. Dry salt, he claimed, can scratch the surface, or finish, where some of the programming is stored. And salt water leaves a film. Marcel also tested other forms of clearing, such as smudging with sage or cedar. These things, according to Rumi Da, did not work. Here's how Marcel says to clear a crystal:
You can do this from anywhere. In workshops, people learn to clear their crystals first while holding them, then at a distance, and then from the next room. This way, they learn through experience that the distance doesn't matter.
You are going to be putting Love and well-being into your crystal. It helps to recall a real, physical experience of love. Rumi Da says that sometimes he even thinks about his Schnauzer licking him on the face. ''Just pure love.'' The technique is pretty much the same as for clearing:
If you have done this correctly and with loving intent, Rumi Da said, you can hold your breath and you will feel your body resonate with the crystal, and it will vibrate in your hand.
For some people it takes practice to feel this and others feel it right away. You may feel a reality shift.
Once it has been cleansed and charged, you mentally put into the crystal whatever else it is you want to work with. But, again, the foundation is Love, Rumi Da said. ''That is an absolute requirement. Will is not enough.''
I asked why we can't simply learn to do these things ourselves. Since we are simply energy, anyway, why do we need the crystal?
''Marcel and I used to have this conversation a lot,'' Rumi Da answered. ''Why can't you just point your finger?
''Basically, I think what Marcel would say is that the crystal amplifies and coheres whatever you put into it. So wherever you are, the crystal is going to amplify and cohere that.''
Healing with Vogel Crystals
Because the crystal holds whatever pattern you put into it, and then broadcasts that pattern wherever you want it to go, as long as what you are doing is lawful you can change the functioning of glands and organs in the body.
With diabetics, for example, they've done work using the crystals to duplicate the work of a healthy pancreas.
Rumi Da told of a case where one man was able to stop using insulin completely through the agency of working with a Vogel crystal.
''Now don't go out and do something stupid,'' he said, ''because this kind of work is experimental. You need to do it under the supervision of an M.D. But many people have been able to decrease their insulin needs by three-fourths, or even completely.''
WHAT ARE VOGEL CUT
By Barbara LaRocca
The purpose of this article is to introduce you to a powerful way of connecting with the earth’s healing energy. One of these connectors is natural quartz crystal that are cut to unfold their fullest power. They are referred to as Vogel Cut Crystals.
After leaving IBM, Vogel continued his research on the use of quartz crystals and their ability to heal people. He founded the Psychic Research Inc., a group dedicated to intensive research into healing energies, especially those of various shapes of quartz crystals. He discovered that doubled terminated wands, cut in the same spatial ratios and proportions of the Tree of Life and pyramids of
Vogel was cutting the wands to reflect the famous alchemical transmutation, “as above, so below.” With the proportions dictated by the Tree of Life and the pyramids of
Vogel knew that the real origin of illness is in the etheric body. Although the body or emotions sustain a trauma, the etheric body holds the memory of physical or emotional injury and it can become stagnant, distorted, or stuck. The result of this unstable or blocked energy is illness. He discovered that crystals are the common thread in healing that ties together energy, illness, and problems in the etheric body.
Whenever light from the higher realms comes into a person’s body, the light gets refracted if the etheric body is not stable. This can cause illness. The Vogel cut crystal gives the user immediate access to the etheric body and stabilizes it, allowing light from the higher realms to enter. Also, a matrix or template of perfection already exists inside the etheric body. Even when there is physical or emotional trauma, the matrix still exists and can be brought back to optimum conditions by the use of Vogel cut crystals.
THE FLOWER OF LIFE CUT PENDANT
(18" chain included)
This is an exciting new cut with very magical properties. The front of the stone is faceted with a six petal flower with an identical flower juxtaposed on the back - creating a 12 pointed star. The energy is one of being surrounded by the abundance and joy that life has to offer us. This magnificent cut has exceeded our expectations by out selling the Star of David in the last year.
What is a Power Cut?
Marcel Vogel found, after working with raw quartz crystals, each provided a unique signature vibration. By precisely faceting quartz, he was able to produce a consistent vibratory pattern that belonged to the "cut". In effect, by faceting the quartz, we "tune" the crystal, providing a coherent base program that the crystal will then hold and perform for us.
