Crystals have always been used as a source of healing power. Since ancient times, cultures all over the world tapped into the power of healing crystals and stones to transform their energy, spirit and physical health. If you were to look at pictures of the ancient Egyptians, Mayans, and Sumerians you would notice how they regularly decorated their bodies, jewelry, and buildings with these alluring stones.
However, it seems our modern society has, for the most part, forgotten about the incredible healing properties of crystals and gemstones. And this is why we’re here to remind you once more of their energetic healing powers and maybe stimulate renewed interest in them.
What Is Crystal Healing Exactly?
Over the last few hundred years, research into the atom’s structure unveiled that everything in our entire universe is made up of energy. Even solid objects are simply vibrations of energy. Therefore, healing crystals are made up of the same kind of energy, even if it doesn’t seem so.
In addition, scientists have figured out how to incorporate the energetic properties of healing crystals and stones in our modern technology as well as medicine. But, we have overlooked, perhaps, the most important use of crystals, energetic healing. If you place certain crystals over some parts of your body, your energy will transform, vibrate, move, according to the energetic properties of the crystal.
Types Of Healing From Crystals
Do you want to get rid of those nagging headaches and soothe your anxiety? Crystals can help you do this and much more. If you want to heal some aspect of your body, mind or spirit there are 3 primary ways to transform your energy and resolve imbalance:
Crystals are able to absorb and remove some types of energy from your body. Just as a magnet can attract metal objects, a healing crystal can absorb the negative energy from your body.
Healing crystals and stones can also push energy into our body, spirit or mind by inducing resonant frequencies. It’s similar to the way electricity conducts and transfers energy into an object, but it’s not dangerous.
Even though our world is very symmetrical, sometimes your energy may be out of balance. And by using the above-mentioned attracting and repelling properties of healing crystals, you can balance out areas of energetic disharmony.
Different Ways Of Using Healing Crystals
There are many thousand types of healing stones and crystals in the world. Just think about all that unutilized healing power that’s waiting for you! This also means that there are lots of different ways you can use these to heal yourself. For instance, you can wear healing crystals, place them on a certain part of the body, meditate with them, use a healing crystal grid, sleep near them, place them around your home or car etc.
Cleansing The Crystals
Since healing crystals attract all sorts of energy, it’s very important to keep them clean. Think of it this way. If you used a sponge to soak up dirty water, you would need to squeeze out the dirty water and clean it up if you want to use it again.
So, before you use them you’ll need to cleanse their energy. You can do this by soaking them (don’t do this with selenite or amber as they will dissolve), smudging them or letting them sit out at night under the light of a fool moon.
Which Type Of Crystal To Use
You can either consult a crystal healing guide or your intuition to figure out which crystals to use for which problems. Just don’t think too much. Always remember that if your rational mind doesn’t know the answer, your subconscious mind does. Rely on your instinct and you’ll definitely make a perfect choice. Trust us!
