Crystal Healing has been around and utilised for thousands of years, some say it goes back to Atlantis/ Leurmia. Shamans and healers of the ‘old ways’ also used crystal healing, as did the native American Indians. Ancient Egyptians used crystal extensively for healing, by using them directly on the body, whole or crushed crystal powder for elixirs, potions, creams, or for a poultice. They also used them to relieve pain, ward off evil spirits and as conduits to help transport the dead to the afterlife.
In modern medicine crystals are also used as they are piezoelectric, this means, that with compression, electricity and light are produced. This is used in ultrasound machines. A piezoelectric quartz crystal is used to produce a sound wave. It can be used to cauterize internal wounds, also to blow apart tumours. It is said to hold a terminated crystal on the body and apply pressure over a short period of time (15minutes or so) it can release a beam of energy to the organ within that area. There are Metaphysical, New Age practitioners who conduct Crystal Healing work. There are Meditations that you can do for yourself with crystals. Crystal healing is effective on the Chakra system and Aura cleansing. Crystals can help you by simply having them in your hand or pocket, when you go out for a walk. Sitting outside relaxing or while you Meditate. Sleeping with them under your pillow, or having them in your work place, can all aid healing on different levels.
In a chakra crystal healing, the stones used, should (if possible) relate to the chakra they are placed on. For instance; Clear Quartz or Amethyst is usually put at the top of the head to open the Crown Chakra. Lay on the floor or bed, relax, breathe and place the crystals (or have someone place them for you) on the seven main chakras. Continue to relax, breathe deeply and slowly. As you do, see your chakras spinning and absorbing the colour and energy of the crystal related to it and resting on that part of the body. As the chakra spins faster and is infused with crystal healing, see all negative energy and attachments being released and dispelled. See only pure light and positive energy being infused into each chakra. With all chakras cleansed and re-energised, meditate on slowing the spinning of them down to the rate of your heart beat. Take several more deep breaths and slowly remove all crystals, and when you feel ready, sit up, relax for a little bit before returning to your days duties.
