Crystals are not just attractive adornments to be worn or used as ornaments. Since time immemorial, they have been used to signify status, power, healing, wealth, love and protection.
Ancient tribal traditions all around the world have revered crystals, particularly Quartz, as being linked to spiritual beings, the source of life and the Divine. (Shamans, magicians, alchemists, witches, psychics and healers – from the Amazon, Australia, India, Burma, Central, South and North America, Japan, Egypt, Greece, Scotland, Ireland and England)
It has long been understood that crystals contain certain energies and powers, and can be used to increase and re-balance the energies within the body, therefore stimulating healing for the user.
How Does Crystal Healing Work?
A Crystal Healing occurs when we find a stone that resonates with us on a spiritual, physical, mental or emotional level, and integrates its energies for use within our own lives.
So how does it work? For many modern healers, it is often enough that they know and trust that crystal healing works. They may not question why or how it works. However, here we look briefly at some of the ways crystals are believed to interact with the body.
Firstly, at an atomic level, everything in the universe (even if it appears to be inanimate) is in constant state of motion. This motion causes waves of energy to be formed, which permeates and surrounds everything that exists, and it is often called 'Universal life-force energy'. Crystals are not inanimate either; at an atomic level they too are constantly vibrating and resonating with a particular frequency. Their internal structure, arranged into exact geometric patterns, is known as the crystal ‘lattice’, which is constant and represents perfect order. This gives them their specific energy signature and, it is believed, their healing powers.
Secondly, it is known that crystals can stabilise, amplify, resonate, regulate and transduce (change) energy. Some people may be unaware that without the technology that Quartz and other crystals provide, the world we know would be a completely different place. They are used in computers, microscopes, mobile phones, telephones, broadcasting equipment, radios, microphones, clocks, watches, credit and debit cards, sonars, lasers and surgical instruments. (Ultrasound equipment, for example is based on crystal energy. Some crystals are able to produce ‘piezoelectricity’ when the crystal is rubbed, struck or compressed. This is used to create sound waves, which are then used for scanning, or blasting tumours and stones from the body without the need for surgery.)
We too are constantly vibrating at an atomic level, and recent research by biophysicists has shown that the DNA contained in each cell of living organisms is a hexagonal crystal structure. If we think about it, this makes sense. These tiny strands contain so much energy and information – to grow and repair the body, to allocate different jobs to each cell as it is formed, and to allow every part of the body to be in constant communication with every other part. The miracle of life! In effect, this means that we are big liquid crystals.
Therefore it is not surprising that the crystal energy signatures resonate with and interact with the crystals within our bodies (or that of any living organism). Or that we may be able to influence and programme the crystal’s energy by focusing our own energy and intent into them. In this way energy can be exchanged between us and the crystal, and balance restored to the body, mind and spirit.
Thirdly, each crystal is made up of a collection of elements that vibrate with a specific frequency. When we bring the crystal into our energy field, the change in frequency is picked up and stimulates these same elements within our body. These trace elements respond to external vibration and are activated, making our bodies believe there is more of the element in our systems. Both these events trigger biochemical shifts in the brain, creating chemical responses that affect the physical body, the mind and emotions, and can also affect the brain function, which may produce a spiritual experience.
Lastly, biophysics has demonstrated that the interaction of energy produces light and heat. As each cell is a tiny powerhouse of energy, there is an hypothesis that light and heat produced from millions of cells in our bodies could be the source of our electromagnetic field, and the colours in our aura.
By interacting with our aura, both the physical and auric colour of the crystals may be used to bring the related chakra back into balance. Like cures like – for example, a green crystal can be used to work upon the physical heart, loving energy, self-acceptance and general good health by placing it over the heart chakra. This, for us, is the basic tenet of crystal healing.
