Crystal Therapy is an ancient art, orginating some believe in Egypt thousands of years ago. Others believe it is even older, beginning in the ancient civilization of Atlantis or possibly even Lemuria. Certainly, gems were important in Jesus’ day as they are referred to many times in the Bible. Wherever it began, these extraordinary gifts from our precious Earth have once again re-emerged to help us at the dawn of the new millenium, the dawn of our planet’s desire for healing.
What is Crystal Therapy?
Crystal therapy is based on the premise that crystals can, in a sense, communicate with the energies flowing around the human body. On a microscopic level a crystal is a network of repeating geometric patterns made up of compressed ions, atoms and molecule, every crystal has its own unique electromagnetic charge. These charges, or ‘healing vibrations’ interact with the body’s energy centres to remove ‘blockages’ and restore a healthy flow through the body and mind.
Crystals emit tiny electrical impulses which are received & recognised via the body’s neurological system. Conscious recognition of the energy exchange is not always apparent as it can be quite subtle. Each crystal has its own unique signature of energy.
Correct placement of crystals on the body will promote emotional and mental harmony. During this state of equilibrium, inner harmony, the body has the perfect conditions to naturally heal itself, producing healthy re- growth of tissue and cells.
Various crystals and minerals are placed on or around a fully clothed person to induce deep relaxation, release stress and pain, and promote energy balance within the physical and subtle bodies. The treatment takes around an hour and crystals may be used singly or in patterns. They are placed on sites of pain, on acupuncture points or meridians, or on subtle energy vortexes called chakras.
How does the treatment work?
Why would the specific placement of crystals have any effect on the well-being of our bodies? It is said that there is no such thing as a miracle, just undiscovered laws of physics. Crystals have the ability to hold and emit energy vibrations. When a crystal is put in a watch the battery sends a constant charge through the crystal. The crystal absorbs the charge, and then releases it at such a precise rate it is used to make the watch keep perfect time. Crystals affect our electro-magnetic energy fields or subtle bodies which surround and permeate the physical body. These include the etheric, emotional and mental bodies, which are collectively called the aura.
Crystals can absorb, focus, direct and diffuse our energy fields to enable a diseased or out of balance body to find it’s natural energetic rhythm once again. The appropriate crystals can be placed on the seven main Chakras, , which look like different coloured spinning wheels of subtle energy, running up the centre of the torso. These link the subtle energy fields of our aura with our Chakras, with our emotions, glands, organs, physical body parts and subtle and physical circulatory flows. This is why wearing certain crystals such as yellow citrine may uplift you, rose quartz may help to ease heartache, and amethyst may calm a busy mind and help you to sleep.
If you know what effect each type of crystal has according to its colour, shape and mineral content, then you can make use of them to initiate a specific effect on the energy balance of the Chakras, , meridians, energy, organs and emotions. Usually crystals with the points facing away from the problem area move the energy away from that area, and crystals placed with the points facing inwards recharge the body with subtle energies.
There are many layouts to choose from, so the therapist either works intuitively or dowses with a pendulum for the right layout. For instance the “Seal of Solomon” layout can also be used to relieve pain or stress. Six quartz points in a star formation can be placed around a painful spot, or around the whole body. A malachite stone can be placed in the centre to accelerate the dispersal of energy. Another layout called “The figure of eight” uses quartz crystals in the shape of a figure of eight to increase the movement of the body’s electro-magnet energy where it has become sluggish.
Does it really work, or is it a gimmick?
One of the best ways to find out whether a painless complementary therapy works is to try it out on an animal, small child or a plant. They do not need a belief in the treatment’s efficacy, nor do they have the ability to understand the treatment, or suggest that the result could be just coincidence.
Crystal Healing treatment is not a substitute for traditional medical care by your GP, it is a complementary therapy that may be used in conjunction with conventional medicine. Should you be aware of any reason why this treatment is contraindicated for you or you have a serious health problem, please consult your GP
