Crystal therapy involves the application of crystals or gemstones to facilitate healing. Their energy can be tapped into a variety of ways. Crystals can be carried or worn on the person, or placed in a location where their healing vibrations can be felt by whomever is nearby. Healers also place stones on their clients’ reclined bodies to balance the chakras and aura.
Each type of stone has its own unique talent. Gemstone colors, shapes, and textures all have special meanings. Crystal elixirs can be made by soaking crystals for a few hours in a glass of water. Healing crystals are used for divination and meditation purposes. You can intuitively choose which crystals to use by noticing which stones you are attracted to. Keep your heart and hands open and allow the appropriate healing crystals to find their way to you.A method of healing with the use of crystals placed on or around the body is called Crystal Healing. Since the earliest times, crystals have been used to heal and restore balance. They help in releasing and clearing negative energy, thereby assisting in energy healing. The earliest records of crystal healing have been traced in Ancient Egypt. India’s Ayurvedic records and traditional Chinese medicine also claim healing with the use of crystals, dating back to 5000 years ago.
What are Crystals?
Crystals are nature’s gift to man that augment healing.They carry spiritual and healing properties that resonate with our bodies. Crystals are found in all shapes, sizes, colours and composition. Each crystal has a unique vibrational resonance. They owe their unique qualities to their mineral content, their inherent geometry and the colour frequency they emit.
Crystals and the Human Body
