Crystal Healing...

Like many healing modalities, crystal healing has been recognised in Eastern traditions since the dawning of civilisation.  The power of crystals has been known and accepted since these early times. I have been told that the bible makes reference to crystals over 200 times when it talks about  the spirituality of a crystalline city, streets of gold dust, crystal sea and a crystal river etc.  They were used in the breastplate of the high priest.

Quartz crystals were used in many ceremonies of the ancient civilisations such as the Mayan, Aztec, American Indian, African and Celtic.

In today’s world crystals are everywhere.  Not only from people buying crystals to keep in their homes but they are recognised as transducers to transmit energy from one system to another.  As ultrasound devices, oscillators for controlling radio frequencies in electronic equipment, memory chips in computers etc.  Their ancient and their futuristic powers are now embraced by scientists as well as spiritualists.

Crystals occur naturally within the mineralogical kingdom.  They are stones of the earth.

In healing, crystals magnify ones personal energy by connecting it with the universal energy.  (Hence its use as a transducer).

It is my belief, and I have proven this to myself in my energetic healings, that using crystals increases the power of each healing.

Much of the above information can be found in the wonderful book Love is in the Earth.  This publication also says that “although one must ultimately heal oneself, the healing process may be facilitated by the catalytic presence of many things.  To experience dis-ease is to experience a total or partial disconnection from wholeness, a loss of awareness of the innate and universal source of perfection.  The members of the mineralogical kingdom have been used for centuries to act as catalysts and to assist one in becoming reunited with the source.”

Crystal Therapy basically involves the client lying on their back on a massage table.  The practitioner will open the chakra points through varying methods, one of those being via a laser crystal.  Crystals are then spread along the client’s body, in particular along the chakra points.  When starting this therapy most often certain colour crystals and stones with certain properties will be chosen and placed on particular chakra points.  After doing this many times, practitioners will often intuitively choose crystals without necessarily ensuring the colours or properties match particular chakras.  They will just “know” the right crystal to place where.  The effects of this crystal therapy in healing has, in my experience, been nothing short of remarkable.  In lay terms, it is almost like the crystals take on a life of their own in the healing process.  They do so much of the work there are times when I wonder if my presence is actually required.

I have found working with crystals to be the most rewarding  experience I have had in helping people overcome dis-ease or discomfort.
