Did you know that crystals and gemstones can actually help increase health and wellness? It’s true! Precious and semi-precious gemstones have been used since recorded history and probably before, for spiritual, emotional and physical healing. Alternative healers all over the world use gemstones today. This post will share information on healing with crystals and precious gemstones.
How can crystals heal?
Our entire bodily system is nothing more than energy that shows up in various patterns and densities. Our thoughts and our feelings are connected to our physical bodies and have a density of their own. These patterns can be disrupted. When this happens we experience poor health. This can be anything from a headache to the worst that you can imagine in terms of poor health, even disease. Gemstones radiate pure patterns. Gemstones resonate with unmatched consistency. Gemstones have incredible properties of structure, balance, wavelength and frequency and can bring us back into harmony. Each stone resonates with a slightly different pattern geometrically. These same geometric patterns reside in our systems, organs, etc. Gemstones are living creatures. They are active participants in nature. Protons, neutrons and electrons are flying around in an absolute bliss of balance and participation, upholding patterns of sacred geometry. When crystals are placed directly on the body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the crystal to you. On a cellular level, our bodies and quartz crystal are both made up of mineral silicon-dioxide. Because of this, we are naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. According to the law of physics, thoughts direct energy and energy follows thought. Crystals and gemstones serve as a tool to help the thoughts of our consciousness connect with our body.
It is very important to go with your intuition and what feels right to you, but there are a few crystals that are kind of a foundation in terms of their effects on those who haven’t had a lot of experience with crystals. When you are interested in healing with crystals you will want to choose ones that resonate with you. The body has a strong way of attracting us to the crystals our bodies need the most. Crystals work on many levels and that their effects can be experienced differently by different people. They assist us with issues through their color, their crystalline structure, and their chemical composition. Some people feel an immediate connection with crystals through their physical and emotional reactions, while others notice the changes but do not necessarily feel the energy of the crystal. They are also a great way to balance the 7 chakras which is vital to improve overall heath and wellbeing.
Common Crystals and Their Properties:
Clear Quartz is a stone of manifestation that energizes and activates the energy centers within the body. It helps the wearer to think clearly, allowing them to focus and become clear about their dreams and desires. Assisting with spiritual development, Clear Quartz assists in removing blockages in the body so that energy can flow smoothly.
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love. It is one of the most important stones for Heart Chakra work, as it opens that heart to all types of love—love of the self, love of family, love of friends and romantic love. The soothing energy of Rose Quartz fosters empathy, reconciliation and forgiveness of others, lowering stress and tension of the heart. It can clear out anger, jealously and resentment towards others, allowing the healing of heart issues caused by holding onto these negative emotions.
Smokey Quartz helps to ground and connect you to the Earth, allowing you to keep your feet on the ground and remain balanced. It emits a high level of energy that absorbs and transmutes negative energy. Smoky Quartz assists in removing mental and emotional blockages, relieving pain and dispersing negative energy from the body. It is worn for emotional support and helps to dissolve anger and resentment as well.
Agate is one of the oldest of healing stones. As a stone of strength, it was used in ancient civilizations, on the breastplates of armor, to bring warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Agates are very protective stones, making them the perfect stones for amulets and medicine bags. They also bring us courage, emotional strength and self-confidence.
Amethyst is a natural stress reliever that encourages inner strength and brings wealth and a strong business sense to its wearer. It is a crystal of spiritual growth and protection. It brings clarity of the mind to their owner and helps you to become more in tune with your feelings so that you get to know yourself on a much deeper level. Amethyst crystals repel negative energy and attract positive energy, making them a wonderful protection stone for the home. They have one of the strongest powers to rid your home of any negative influence.
Tiger’s Eye helps to rebalance the body on all levels, encouraging optimism and trust in the future. It brings brightness and light into all situations and shines insight onto all problems. Tiger’s Eye brings good luck, abundance and prosperity to its wearer. In many ancient civilizations, it was used as a talisman against bad luck and curses. Tiger’s Eye is a must have in any home for healing.
Jasper is highly valued as a healing stone that is full of grounding energy. They can connect you deeply to the vibrations of the Earth, bringing a greater understanding of the power of nature. Jasper helps us to be less judgmental and know on a soul level that we are all connected. In some Native American culture, Jasper symbolizes the blood of the Earth, making it particularly sacred.
Bloodstone is a powerful healing stone that has been valued for thousands of years for its healing energy. It purifies and detoxifies the body, grounding negative energy and cleansing your body’s energy. Bloodstone also increases energy and strength, promoting a constant flow of energy throughout the body. It is a very beneficial stone for athletes and people whose jobs include a lot of physical activity.
Healing with Crystals
It is best to work slowly and keep a written record of each treatment as to how long stone was left on the body and exactly where on the body it was placed. You may have to experiment with many gemstones to find the correct stone for your purpose. If you are interested in ordering gemstones for healing you can get them from a reputable source here. I use my gemstones regularly during meditation and usually carry a stone around in my pocket (whatever resonates with me) to calm me down when needed just by a simple touch! I cleanse the energy of my stones by placing them outside during the full moon or laying them on dirt overnight.
