Crystal healing is one aspect of living a more holistic lifestyle, in brief, various crystals can be held, worn as jewellery or placed on or around a person, animal, plant, building or natural area.
Its a non invasive treatment which can aid general well being or treat a specific condition, subjective but perhaps most used in order to keep ‘balanced’.
Whilst over time various tests and experiments of crystal healing have been performed in order to dis-credit it, its use is steeped in history. How many prominent figures have been seen to wear large stone jewellery and carry objects encrusted in gemstones?
Whilst the boundaries of science are ever widening, perhaps the true effects of crystals are still lurking in the unknown…
But science can measure frequency, vibration and energy emanating from stone, especially when external forces are applied, the simple clock or watch has a quartz movement, struck together quartz can create a spark.
This energy vibration therefore must have a subtle impact on our own energy fields, adopted from an older civilisation the term chakra is commonly used today to refer to the different energy centres in the body, the main being root chakra, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown, there are other smaller chakras all around the body.
So taking a stone of a particular vibration and places it into the area of a chakra can have an effect on it.
Down at the local bookshop(if you have one) you’ll find several books on crystal healing from a variety of authors often with what appears contradictory information. You must consider with your own discernment which you feel appropriate or resonates with you, we’re all different so different crystals can have differing effects on different people, what some might consider a grounding stone others may have a different view.
Visiting a crystal healer and having a healing session maybe appropriate for you, or if you have a range of stones or crystal jewellery at home, perhaps you take a moment every morning and consider which would be the best stone or stones for you to carry around today, take that moment to quieten the world and hold the thought then decide.
I had a lovely rose quartz large inverted drop shape pendant gifted to me which I wore daily for quite some time, then for a few days in a row the cord can undone at it would slip from my neck, I managed to rescue it and tie it tighter then one day it fell and hit the pavement and damaged itself. Perhaps it was a way to say I didn’t need to wear it any longer.
Placing stones around the home in conjunction with cleansing can change the feel of the room, traditionally salt was also sprinkled around.
Crystal grids, the placement of quartz points and other stones should be tried, for example quartz points in the corners of a room, maybe with some rose quartz and perhaps a quartz cluster in the centre to help the energy flow, experiment to find what feels best, perhaps different in each room depending on the purpose. Once I visted a good friend and noticed a huge chunk of rose quartz in the shower. My neighbours think I have a couple of interesting brown rocks adjacent to my path but I know they’re jasper, in the garden I’ve several large chunks of rose quartz, amethyst and clear quartz, the plants seem happy!
