Crystals take billions of years to form underground in Mother Earth. Crystals are formed (by repeating chemical structures) and is believed that because of this they have the ability to hold energies. There are many different types of crystals available around us, they differ depending on the type of minerals they are made from and the conditions they grow in.
These differences bring about a change to the inherent energies of the crystal and also to the energies they radiate.
Crystal healing is one of alternative, holistic and natural healing therapy that utilizes the energies of the crystals and help healing the body, mind and in turn the soul.
Here we’ll discuss how crystal healing works, what you can expect from a session and how you can use crystals at home.
How does crystal healing work?
Crystal healing is an energy healing method. It is based on the belief & understanding that we all have different energies and vibrations and when we fall sick or do not feel healthy be it physically, mentally or emotionally then these vibrations and energies become stagnant, unbalanced or blocked in our bodies and hence result in illness.
Crystals have vibrations & energies & also have consciousness in them, which help us heal when placed on our body or in and around our aura (energy body). They help in unblocking, balancing and directing our energies to the weak & painful spots in our body and hence supporting our body to heal in an overall therapeutic way.
Different types of crystals have different and very unique vibrational energies based on their individualistic mineral properties. Only by holding and being near these crystals does affect our own energies positively on a physical, emotional & spiritual level.
“Crystals are a part of Mother Earth, connecting, balancing and harmonising. They also connect with all living things not only within but interconnecting with the energy fields around us too.” ~ Therapist Jacky Jueno.
Crystal healing benefits:
Crystal healing is an alternative healing modality which is not a conventional approach, this also means it can be used alongside medical treatments and has no negative side-effects. The benefits of crystal healing are varied and take place on different energetic levels.
The most common responses received post a crystal healing session is of deep relaxation that takes place during a session. This helps in general well-being and is particularly useful when working upon stress and anxiety. It can also help in healing tense muscles which help improve physical pain and sleeping problems.
On an emotional and spiritual level, crystals can help improving self-esteem, encourage clarity and inspire a sense of peace and centredness to mention a few. Anyone can gain from this healing easily, however, if you are sceptical about the healing process you will naturally close yourself energetically.
The magic lies in having an open mind free from any assumptions or preconceived notions. Healing happens when the responsibility of wanting to be healed is taken up by the person wanting healing. Crystals are just aids & means which streamline, support & enhance the healing process energetically. The process does involve time and patience as no cure is magical. We need to be persistent and open during the entire course of healing. Usually, more chronic the issue the longer it would take though there are exceptions to this.
