Crystals have been used for millennia to heal and bring balance. Crystals work through resonance and vibration and are increasingly used in modern medical practices, such as in ultrasound machines. A tightly focused beam of ultrasound can cauterize wounds deep within the body and blast tumours apart without the need for invasive procedures. Shamans and crystal healers of old were familiar with this ability of crystal to focus sound and light vibrations into a concentrated ray which was then applied for healing. Rotating a crystal wand on the skin causes compression which releases a focused beam to the organ beneath.
Ancient healers also knew that, whereas some crystals are either energizing or calming, there are crystals that will both sedate an overactive organ and stimulate a sluggish one. Magnetite, with its positive and negative charge, does exactly this. There are crystals that will heal quickly, but may provoke a healing challenge, while others work much more slowly. If you want to deal with pain – a signal that something is wrong in the body – you can do this with crystals. Pain could result from an excess of energy, a blockage, or a debility. A cool and calming crystal such as Lapis Lazuli or Rose Quartz will sedate energy, whereas Carnelian will stimulate it.
Crystals are excellent for dealing with headaches. Lapis Lazuli will quickly draw off a migraine headache, but you need to know from where the headache stems. If it is caused by stress, Amethyst, Amber, or Turquoise placed on the brow will relieve it. If is food-related, however, a stone that calms the stomach such as Moonstone or Citrine will be appropriate.
Crystals heal holistically. That is to say, they work on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels of being. They realign subtle energies and dissolve dis-ease, getting to the root cause. Crystals work through vibration, rebalancing the bio-magnetic sheath that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body and activating linkage points to the chakras that regulate the body’s vibrational stasis. By bringing the chakras back into balance, many states of physical and psychological dis-ease can be ameliorated.
Most illnesses result from a combination of factors. There will be dis-ease at subtle levels and this may be emotional or mental or be a sign of spiritual unease or disconnection. Other energetic disturbances may be caused by environmental factors such as electromagnetic smog or geo-pathic stress. Simply placing a Black Tourmaline or Smoky Quartz between you and the source of geo-pathic or electromagnetic stress can magically transform your life. Crystals gently deal with the cause.
Crystals have been connected with particular parts of the body and its organs for thousands of years. Many of the connections come from traditional astrology, both Western and Eastern. Traditional Chinese Medicine, Indian Ayurveda, both over 5000 years old, still use in modern medical prescriptions crystals that appear in formulas in ancient texts. Hematite is said to calm the spirit and so combats insomnia.
Text taken from The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall, an excellent source of information about the healing powers of thousands of crystals.
Healing crystals, or stones, are placed in the area of the chakras, the colour of the stones may correspond to the colour which is associated with the corresponding chakra. Going from the tail bone to the top of the head, the colours are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Different stones are believed to have different healing vibration, so a treatment based on the type of stone may be used instead.
Crystal healing has been used in many different cultures throughout history, including the Hopi Indians of Arizona and the Hawaiian islanders, some of whom still use them to this day. In Egypt, jade amulets were found in tombs and burial chambers because of their supposed power to guide souls in the afterworld. The Chinese still attribute extensive healing powers to jade, and many believe that emerald will strengthen the memory and increase intelligence.
