Crystals are the essence of life manifesting within the Earth. They can be used to return our being back to a state of harmony and flow.
What Is A Crystal?
The word crystal comes from the Ancient Greek word “krustallos”, meaning frozen light. A crystal is generally considered to be a systematic, orderly and repetitive patterning of molecules or energies. From a more metaphysical point of view, some consider that light has stepped down through many levels of density before the physical form of a crystal manifests through the dynamics we understand in crystallography and geology. It is the forming aspect of light which patterns the highly ordered array of energies we call a crystal.
Where Do They Come From?
Crystals are forged in nature, born in the crucible of Earth’s interior when molten rock or magma cools, or by the separating of mineral-rich water, such as that in underground caverns. The process of a mineral becoming a crystal is called crystallization and occurs when certain molecules in a liquid solution gather together as they attempt to become stable. The molecules, atoms, and ions begin to arrange in repeating chains, sheets, or three-dimensional arrays to form a highly ordered microscopic crystalline lattice that extends in all directions. There are approximately 3800 known crystal and gemstones with about 30 to 50 new minerals being discovered each year!
A Brief History of Crystal Healing
For thousands of years crystals and gemstones have been used as powerful energetic healing tools. Humans have utilized the power of crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages, thus facilitating the free flow of energy throughout the body. Today, we understand that all things in the universe are forms of energy with their own frequency and vibration. Nikola Tesla declared this concept as the key to understanding the universe and proved how certain forms of energy can alter the vibrational resonance of other forms of energy. This concept is why healing crystals and gemstones are still used to this day to align, heal and alter the vibration of bodily cells, chakras, and the subtle bodies by holistic healers.
Choosing the Perfect Crystal
In choosing a crystal, we suggest you trust your intuitive self to guide you to the proper one. Make sure that the piece you choose is naturally formed (as opposed to man-made). Those labeled Austrian, Lead Crystal or Swarovski lack the channeling abilities required for crystal healing or energy work. Most people choose the one that is most attractive and appealing to them. Another way would be by closing your eyes and passing your left hand (the receiving hand) over the crystal. You may feel a temperature change (hot or cold) or you may sense a flow of energy entering your fingers or palm. It may travel up your arm and into your body. Your heart rate may increase or a dizzy feeling could come over you. If any of these indicators occur, the crystal is “speaking” to you and offering itself to you. Keep a new crystal with you as much as possible for a week. Place it next to your bed when you sleep at night or carry it with you during the day. Pay attention to your moods, your interactions with others and your dreams. Ask, “What does this stone do?” Let your higher-self tell you.
How Does Crystal Healing Work?
Crystals and gemstones carry their own unique vibration which is free of resistant patterns. Their unchanging physical structure is a reflection of their innate energetic pattern of balance and strength which are incorruptible. Recent breakthroughs in quantum theory and concepts of electromagnetism have given us scientific evidence for what the ancients always knew. Crystals have the ability to shift and alter the energies of other objects or bodies when they occupy the same space. This is because they increase the frequency of light within their surrounding area which affects the movement of photons, allowing them to evolve accordingly with environmental changes and our own energy systems. When a crystal vibrates within our own energy field through the physical law of resonance it creates a larger vibrational field which can harmonize frequencies and stimulate biochemical shifts that affect physical health in a positive, healing way.
Human beings are, to some extent, living crystals. On a cellular level, both quartz crystals and our physical bodies are made up of a mineral called silicon-dioxide. Because of this, we are naturally receptive to the subtle vibrations of crystals as they store, amplify, and reflect energy from their surroundings. When one uses natural quartz crystals to heal the body, energy transference occurs because of a resonance effect between the quartz crystal and those cellular crystal systems which share the same properties. The lymph system, pineal gland, fatty tissues, cell salts, and blood cells are all bio-crystalline in nature. Crystals can resonate with these bio-crystalline elements and amplify certain aspects of the life force in energy circuits that run throughout the body. Healing stones can communicate information to the bio-crystalline structure within the cells to encourage rejuvenation of the body. This can be accomplished by placing stones on the appropriate chakras, wearing crystal jewelry, or by simply carrying stones in your pocket.
In metaphysical terms, you are actually interacting with crystals energetically. This interaction then causes changes to your structure and psychology through your own energetic systems. It begins a process of re-balancing the energetic structure of your body which can actually help you heal, grow, and prosper.
