What is Crystal Healing?
Crystals have been used for healing since ancient times by many different cultures. This is a truly wonderful holistic therapy, which means that the focus is on the individual as a whole, rather than on the physical symptoms alone. Crystals also work well with other healing systems, such as aromatherapy, massage, colour therapy, Usui Shiki Ryoho and Kundalini Reiki.
The properties of crystals derive from their orderliness and the stability of their atomic structure. If subjected to some outside force such as heat, pressure, electricity or light, crystals can make minute adjustments to restore their internal stability. It is this quality that makes crystals so important in so many different areas of technology. When a body is unwell or diseased, it is usually because the natural balance or rhythm has been lost. Using crystals with their perfect atomic structure offers patterns for the body to follow to help self-healing. The very nature of crystals increases the levels of harmony in the immediate environment.
Crystals are used for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. By drawing on the unique qualities of crystals such as quartz and amethyst, you can balance the energy fields around your body, home and office to bring well-being, and gain health benefits. Crystals can help soothe emotional problems such as anxiety, mood swings, or shyness, as well as physical symptoms such as migraines and allergies. Also, crystals can act as natural energy boosters and aid in detoxifying our systems. Additionally, crystals can be worn, placed next to a person’s bed as they sleep, or placed around a person’s bath.Crystal Therapy – What is it?
Crystal therapy is a form of vibrational medicine and is a gentle system of holistic healing. It involves placing crystals around a person to facilitate healing, in which the vibration of the crystals bring light and colour frequencies into a person’s aura. The crystal frequencies then direct the flow of energy to a particular part of the body and bring balance to a person’s energy. Additionally, crystals can be used to cleanse negative energy that is believed to have caused illness.
Crystals promote balance and alignment, clearing of blocked energies, elevating of mental awareness, and entry into the subtle dimensions of consciousness. They facilitate healing on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. In other words, the perfect vibration of the crystal resonance helps to align our own etheric and vibrational fields.
How does it work?
Crystal therapy can assist the client to access hidden or subconscious energies as the memory veils are lifted. In the relaxed state, for example, past lives or childhood traumas may come up for evaluation, re-assessing, healing, and transformation. Additionally, corresponding mental, emotional, and spiritual causes of physical diseases can be discovered and attended to. Placing the crystals on the body will cause deep relaxation, and your brain waves will settle into an alpha wave state which is a somewhat dreamy and concentrated meditative state – like in a lucid dream, simultaneously aware and conscious.
Crystals are mainly placed on specific areas of the body called “Chakras”, a Hindu term meaning “spiritual energy”. According to Hindu teachings, there are seven basic energy centres in the body (Chakras), each having a colour associated with it. Crystal healers may place the same colour crystals as the colour of the chakras on the person receiving the therapy to enhance the flow of energy. Specific stones, each with their unique healing properties – are placed upon the chakras with the intention to activate the auric field.
What is a Crystal therapy session like?
The therapist will go over some questions on an intake form and discuss the reason for your visit. You will lie down on your back and be guided through a meditation and a breathing technique to settle into the session. The therapist will open a sacred space, place the crystals on your body in silence, then start dialogue and therapeutics. They will then ask you questions, and you will respond, prompting you to explore your interior landscape. They usually take notes about what you are experiencing and feeling. Depending on what the therapist intuitively feels is needed, they will either change the crystals, place more crystals, or use different therapeutic techniques to facilitate a potent healing session. At the end of the session, the therapist will make sure you are grounded and will discuss a maintenance program for you to integrate the healing that took place into your daily life.
