Crystals are decorative, fascinating gemstones and come in all shapes and sizes. They have magical powers and properties. They generate, store, regulate, transmit and transform energy. It is a holistic therapy that has been used throughout ancient times for physical healing. So, if you were deficient in a specific type of energy you were given a specific stone to wear.
Everything in the universe is made up of some sort of energy. The chair you sit on, the cup you drink out of. When a person’s mind or body is in disharmony through unsettled thoughts or disease, a crystal placed on or near the person is supposed to transform the person to a state of balance and harmony.
By putting out good vibes they harmonize the atmosphere and transmit good energy. Energy means that they can be used for certain tasks, such as directing healing energy to a specific point that may have a blockage.
While you wear your crystal as jewellery or in a pouch, the crystal vibrations work continuously on your imbalances. They say it is important to keep the crystal on you all the time (24hrs a day) for at least 21 days in order for the cleansing process to be initiated.
It can take up to three to four months or longer to harmonise your body and if you carry on wearing the stones or crystals after that period, they say you will achieve continuous stability.
Some people claim that crystals promote the flow of good energy and help rid your body and mind of negative energy for physical and emotional benefits. However, it’s important to know that there’s almost no scientific evidence to support the use of crystals.
Healthline writes that healing crystals for health include –
- Clear quartz: a clear crystal considered a master healer and believed to support the entire energetic system
- Jasper: a nurturing stone said to provide support during times of stress
- Obsidian: believed to help process emotions and experiences and aid in letting go
- Amethyst: used for healing, purifying, and enhancing willpower
- Bloodstone: said to improve circulation and provide support to blood-related issues
The Therapy Directory explains Crystal healing is an energy-based system. This means it is based on the belief that we are all made up of different energies and that when this becomes stagnant, unbalanced, or blocked, it can cause illness. The premise is that crystals help unblock, balance, and direct energy where it is most needed, gently supporting the body to heal in a therapeutic way.
