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.
