Crystals have been used down through history for healing, personal reflection and meditation. The vibrations crystals emit have a very definite effect on energy flow and work well with the human energy field; they can move, absorb, focus, direct and diffuse energy within the body.

This is apparent by the extensive use of crystals in industry, such as watches, computers and radios. Each crystal has a unique vibration resonance, created by their mineral content, their inherent geometry and the colour frequency they emit.

How do crystals work?

Crystal healing works in many ways, one of which is the ability the crystals have to clear and remove toxins, pollutions and blockages in the body and from the aura* (a bio magnetic field that surrounds our body). Crystals work holistically; consequently all levels of our being are brought back into balance, creating harmony with the mind, body, emotions and spirit.

* The aura is made up with many various layers, but in crystals healing, the first three - physical, emotional and mental are predominately worked on.

When the body is unwell or diseased it is usually because the person has in some way lost their balance/natural rhythm.

As quoted by J Burgess:

“Life is made up of energy and the physical body is a microcosm reflecting the macrocosm of the universe. Our planet and ultimately, the universe, exist as a perpetual dance of balancing forces. The air we breathe, the heat and light of the sun, water and food, are all energies on which we depend for life. As organisms we are finely balanced to take in, store, transform and transmit energy. So if something in our personal energy system or in the balance of our environment breaks down, the balance of life – supporting functions is impaired and we can spiral into a destructive pattern of disease.”

Disease and illness rarely, if at all, start on a physical level. It tends to have moved in on another level first; for instance, emotional or mental – shock/trauma, anger, heart pain and upset. If such emotions or mental thought patterns are not cleansed and released, the physical body will become sick.

Each organ resonates with an emotion; the liver relates to anger, the kidneys to fear. For example, when you hold onto a negative emotion such as anger; within 52 hours it will have moved and manifested itself into the physical body, causing a physical symptom.

Furthermore, since the aura is expansive, it will frequently pick up and absorb the energy of others – which can often be to one’s detriment. In a time where we are squeezed into smaller spaces and in closer proximity to people (office, travel), it is exceedingly easy to become negatively affected by others’ feelings, thoughts or emotions. For instance, have you ever set off in your day feeling well and happy; yet when you arrive home from work or a day out, you feel drained, tired or emotional for no apparent reason? The cause will often be the result of absorbing someone else’s “stuff.” Working with crystalline energy helps the body to rid itself of these toxins and find its natural rhythm again. Additionally, crystals are not only able to remove blocked stagnant and negative energy from a person but they are able to clear any environment from such heaviness and smog.

There was a recent TV programme where a cab driver was given a crystal to put in the front of his cab, as he frequently suffered with tiredness, along with an overall feeling of being drained. To his dismay, the crystal not only re-energised him but took away his headache and ultimately gave him an overall feeling of vitality. The crystal was absorbing the energies (in most instances not positive energy – as a majority of the clients were stressed and dashing about for appointments, etc) that the driver would have otherwise picked up from his clients.

It has been mentioned above how each crystal possesses its own vibration energy that enables it to resonate with specific organs and subtle bodies (aura), yet they are also able to heal and re-align the chakra system. The chakras are whirling vortexes of energy that extend from the spine out to the front of our bodies, running over the top of our head. There are many additional minor chakras within the body, but there are seven main ones. Each chakra has its own colour and vibration, which has a direct effect on specific glands and functions in the physical body, in addition to the aura. This therefore highlights the importance of the full colour spectrum of crystals; as the colour of the stone will have a direct relationship to the organ and chakra. When a chakra is out of balance or becomes blocked our body’s natural flow of energy is disrupted causing symptoms such as pain, fatigue, listlessness, stress and depression to name a few.

The vibration of the crystal/s (through its unique perfect atomic structure and colour) will assist to balance, restore and energise the depleted or weak chakra or particular organ. Once the body has been perfectly re-aligned the physical body stays strong and becomes its own efficient healing machine able and capable to fight anything that comes along.

Crystals can help with general wellbeing, stress reduction, boosting energy and increasing vitality as well as treating a multitude of specific chronic ailments such as, migraines and are powerful tools to aid in detoxifying organs, such as the lymph, liver, spleen and stomach.

What's the need for energy healing?

In Western cultures there is a tendency to ignore any maintenance of good health and carry on as we are until things go wrong. By the time any action is taken, the illness may be well set-in. If we take the initiative to look after our health on an ongoing basis, energy healing techniques such as crystal healing enable us to intervene and correct any imbalances within the personal energy field before any signs of illness have manifested. In this way we can take a more preventative stance in our health and well-being.
