Created over the epochs, healing crystals harness the life-giving elements of the earth and the universe. Harnessing the energy of the sun, the moon, and the oceans these semi-precious stones connect us to earth as we come into contact with them. Many people wonder if crystals have healing powers, and while there are many anecdotes describing the curative effects of healing stones, it really depends on your own experience. It might take a conscious effort to open your heart and mind to the power of crystal healing, but once you begin, the journey is speckled with beautiful, mysterious, and unique crystals that will rock your world. How does crystal healing work? Research into the structure of the atom years has revealed that everything in the universe is made up of energy. Even solid objects, like a piece of furniture or the hair on your head, are really just vibrations of energy at the most fundamental levels. While It may not look like it to your eye, but the healing crystals and the cells in your body are made up of the same kind of energy. Just like magnets use energy to attract or repel, healing stones crystals use energy in the same way. When you place certain crystals over certain parts of your body, energy in your body transforms, vibrates, pulses, moves and shifts in accordance with the properties and energetic signature of the crystal. What type of healing can you expect from healing crystals? You can use crystals to heal almost everything from migraines to anxiety and beyond. Healing crystals can also accelerate your meditation practices, align your 7 chakras and even induce trance states under the right conditions. There’s no limit to the types or level of healing you can get from the right crystal or stone in the right application. There are essentially 3 primary ways healing crystals can transform your energy and resolve imbalance: Clearing – Healing crystals have the ability to absorb and remove certain types of energy from your body. Just like a magnet can pick up little pieces of metal shavings, a healing crystals can absorb negative energy from your body. Energizing – healing crystals and stones can also push energy into your body, mind or spirit through inducing resonant frequencies. This is similar to the way electricity works by conducting and transferring energy into an object. A crystal can harness energy from the quantum field and send it into your own energy field. Don’t worry, unlike electricity, this crystal healing energy is painless and not dangerous. Balancing – Our world is very symmetrical. Look at the leaves on trees or even your body. The energy of our planet aligns things in a mirrored pattern. Sometimes, your energy may be misaligned and go out of balance; healing crystals can use the properties mentioned above, which are essentially attracting and repelling, to balance out areas of energetic disharmony.
