Crystal Healing Basics
By Judy Hall
Healing can be defined as bringing the body, emotions, mind and spirit back into harmony. It does not necessarily imply a cure, although it frequently ameliorates conditions. Crystal healing is a gentle and non-invasive process that creates balance on all levels, and one that can provide support to the body’s own internal healing systems. The lore on which it is based has its roots in antiquity and the body of knowledge is, therefore, supported by thousands of years of practical experience.
Crystals interact with the human energy field to heal, calm, stimulate or adjust the energies within it and to bring the body back into balance. They are beneficial for children, animals, adults and the environment. Crystals also work on attitudes, emotions and the mind, instilling a feeling of well-being, neutralizing negativity, lifting depression and assisting coordination – both mental and physical. One of their most important roles in healing is in bringing the chakras and subtle energy sheath around the physical body back into alignment, and another is in dealing with underlying factors in dis-ease – the psychosomatic effect of the mind and emotions on the body.
Each crystal has its own unique vibration, which can be felt by sensitive people, and most have a small but measurable electrical charge together with an internal lattice-like structure that absorbs and transforms toxic energies.
Virtually all crystals were born deep in the earth, inside the earth’s magnetic field, so it’s not surprising that they absorbed its magnetic charge and stellar radiation. However, the unique way in which each type of crystal developed subtly altered its magnetic charge. Some were produced, or amended, by great heat or pressure; others were laid down gradually over aeons of time; one or two arrived from outer space. Each cell within the human body also has an electrical charge and when the charge of a crystal is brought close to a cell, or to the biomagnetic sheath that surrounds the physical body, it gently brings the energy of the cell or the biomagnetic sheath back into balance.
Crystals are formed from specific minerals, or combinations of minerals, and the chemical constitution of the stones, and their healing effect, was recognized in ancient Egypt and underlies crystal healing lore. Peridot, for instance, known as poor-man’s Emerald because it shares its more expensive counterpart’s brilliant green colour, is formed from silicon, iron and magnesium; while Tourmaline contains iron, boron, aluminium, lithium, magnesium, potassium, silicon, sodium and trace elements that affect the colour; and Turquoise is mainly aluminium with copper and iron. These minerals, which are essential for body health and physiological processes, pass into the body in minute dilutions and subtly affect health.
You may find that you are instinctively drawn to a particular stone and it may be one that you already have in your collection. If so, try this one first. If it does not work as well as you would like, you can dowse for a suitable stone. You can also dowse when purchasing a healing crystal, either by allowing your fingers instinctively to pick the right stone from a number of stones – usually the one that ‘sticks’ to them – or using a pendulum or finger dowsing. Dowsing is an excellent way to select your crystal(s) and you can either use a pendulum for this purpose or finger dowse. Both methods use the ability of your intuitive body–mind connection to tune into subtle vibrations and to influence your hands. A focused mind, trust in the process, carefully worded questions and a clear intent will support your dowsing and your healing.
Most crystals can be placed over clothing and left in place for 20 minutes or so, although many are particularly beneficial when placed directly on skin. They can also be taped in place, or worn for much longer periods for healing or prevention; or they can be kept in a pocket, or placed around your bed or a room. You can also apply crystal remedies externally, or take them internally. These remedies convey crystal vibes to the body at a subtle level and are particularly effective for emotional conditions. If your crystal has a point, place it point towards yourself, or point down if placed on your body, to draw healing or reenergizing properties into your body; and point out, or up if placed on your body, to draw off toxic residues or emotions.
