Is it just some New Age nonsense or crystals do have healing abilities?
In my experience crystals are a little bit like Marmite, they fall into the Love or Hate category… I have been at an exhibition last year with my healing crystal jewellery and I heard a lady commenting on one of the crystal’s healing properties as she walked past saying “who comes up with all these silly things a crystal can do?” and then she laughed as she walked away.
I have to say it touched a nerve in me, and in a split second thoughts and emotions started racing inside of me. Suddenly I noticed I got very protective of “my crystal jewellery babies”. Then I remembered some decades ago I only looked at crystals as pretty stones that look nice in a ring or necklace, completely unaware of their healing abilities.
I still was torn inside running different scenarios in my head: I could stop her and start chatting with her, trying to convince her with the knowledge I gained about crystals in the last 6 years, when studying crystal healing… or I could just share my own experiences with her on how crystals helped me feel emotionally balanced, when I was really on edge numerous times, or recharged my energy tanks, when I was physically exhausted or recovering from illnesses… or shall I just let her go?…. I kept my cool and let her go, leaving her, with her own perception of healing crystals. And I realised it’s ok. We all see and experience the world differently.
Crystals have been used for healing purposes for thousands of years all over the world
Where? Pretty much everywhere. Crystals are ancient healing tools that humans were drawn to for protection, increasing health, diagnosing and treating illnesses. Here are some examples:
The Ancient Egyptians used crystals for protection and health.
Romans loved wearing crystals as amulets and they also used them for enhancing health.
Mayans used crystals for balancing their energies on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. With the help of crystals they not only could treat diseases, but they could look into the future with divination too.
American Indians are still using crystals to diagnose and heal illness. They also make them into jewellery incorporating Turquoise and Agate for example.
In Buddhism, the Medicine Buddha is called “Healing Master of Lapis Lazuli Radiance,” and its rituals include actually meditating on the Lapis Lazuli crystal.
Traditional Indian Medicine dates back to thousands of years too. Ayurveda– literally translated as the Science of longevity aims to bring health and happiness to the individual.
They use crystals to fortify the immune system, and restore the dosha imbalance (doshas are the different types of categories of their system), so they can bring back the human body to the state of harmony. For example to balance the dosha called Pitta, they use Aquamarine and Lapis Lazuli, just to mention a few. For Kapha imbalance Red Garnet, for Vata type individuals, who are often worried and over-anxious Peridot and Emerald are found in the list of healing crystals used in treatments.
Chinese medicine has been developed for 4000 years. It is an independent system, which is based on the observation of how the Universe and the human energy system is interacting with each other.
Qi or Chi is the Life force energy, which was at the centre of their observations. They believe if you do understand how Qi functions in your being and you learn how to regulate it correctly, you are able to live a long and healthy life. Therefore to adjust human Qi flow is the root of Chinese medical science.
Acupressure, acupuncture and herbal treatments are all part of it. They use crystal needles in modern day Chinese acupuncture and they also use crystals to balance the organs’ system. For example Malachite to balance liver energy, Emerald to heal the heart and Citrine for stomach problems…
Where does modern day science stand regarding healing crystals?
In general science has amazing results in many areas that support what has been already experienced in healing for thousands of years.
I am an Ambassador for the Global Coherence Initiative (GCI). GCI conducts ground-breaking scientific research on the interconnection of humanity and the Earth’s magnetic fields and energetic systems. They research how our emotions, thoughts and intuition can be controlled in a positive way to create better health mentally, physically and emotionally. It is really breath-taking what they do. However in regards of healing crystals science haven’t got far yet.
On the one hand there is no proof from science that crystals have healing properties.
On the other hand now the technology exists to capture the subtle energies of humans, crystals, fruits, vegetables… “Kirlian photography has shown that holding a small, double terminated quartz doubles the photographable portion of the human aura.” If you know that Quartz crystals have a property to amplify the person’s energy field, when they are holding it, this fact becomes even more fascinating. So the energies crystal give off at least now can be captured by machines, which is a step forward to the right direction.
Crystals are widely used in technology. The Silicon dioxide, found in Quartz crystals, Amethyst and Agate is the most common material used to make semiconductors for computers. Apart from that you can find crystals in your mobile phone, laptop, watch… Crystals have the ability to store information i.e. can be programmed for different purposes…
How Healing Crystals interact with our Human Energy?
Crystals are part of the Mineral Kingdom, and our human body is containing certain minerals too. On the top of that our bone structure proved to be a solid crystal structure with piezo electric properties (creating an electro-magnetic field around us). as it happens Quartz crystals also have piezo electric properties.
When crystals come in contact with our electro-magnetic field, also called aura, they are working with our etheric body, which is the layer of our aura, closest to our body.
The crystals can break down energy blockages already existing on this level, preventing them to manifest as a physical illness. Our chakra system (energy centres) also exist on this level. Therefore crystals can stimulate or calm down these chakra centres, which has an impact on related organs, tissues, cells, and ultimately on our entire energy field.
Crystals help you maintain your energy vibration
As a Reiki practitioner and crystal healer I use healing crystals both as part of a healing treatment and suggest them to my clients as energy tools to maintain their energy levels.
After an energy healing session their energy vibration gets high, but depending on their energy habits i.e. over-thinking, worrying they can empty their energy tanks very quickly and start going back to the energy frequency they started from, unless they are taking steps to replacing their old habits.
All of us know how hard it is to build a new habit, even if we are aware it is good for us.
This is when crystals come handy. They activate or calm down certain areas in your being. They supply extra energy to achieve your goals, to become healthier, calmer or assist, when you start your mindfulness practise to supply a boost of energy as and when you need it.
I make the tumbled gemstones into jewellery. I create pendants, charms, necklaces, or bracelets for ease of use.
The Benefits of Wearing Healing Crystals as Jewellery
- Convenient – They are constantly in your energy field, so you do not need to worry about losing them, if they fall out of your pocket or bra 😉
- Easy – Just put them on and enjoy their vibration hours on end, whatever activity you are doing.
- Effective – They interact with your energies, keeping you uplifted, relaxed, grounded, depending on the crystal you are wearing.
- Practical – You can position them according to your purpose. For example if you use Quartz crystal to protect you from energy drain, you can wear it on a long necklace, positioning the pendant at your Solar Plexus Chakra, so you do not get overwhelmed with others’ energies.
- Beautiful – every crystal have a unique shade of colour and shape. My designs help to bring the most out of them, so you look stunning, when wearing them.
- Discreet – most people have no idea what crystals can do, so your energy tools basically are hiding in plane site.
