Did you know we have discovered powerful techniques for creating radiant health, happiness, prosperity, peace and flow in our lives and relationships with pieces of our planet – crystals and stones?
There are thousands of crystals and healing stones in our world!
Ancient cultures such as the Egyptians, Sumerians and Mayans held crystals and stones in high regard for their ability to balance our emotions and heal body, mind and spirit.
Long before Albert Einstein espoused his famous E = MC2, basically theorizing that the fundamental nature of matter is, in fact energy, these cultures employed the energetic signatures of crystals and healing stones to interact with and alter our energetic patterns in a variety of ways.
Just like magnets use energy to repel or attract, crystals and healing stones use energy in the same manner.
Placed over certain parts of the body, they transform our energy, vibrate, pulse, move and shift our energy in accordance with the properties and energetic signature of the crystal or healing stone.
There are three primary ways crystals and healing stones transform our energy and counter imbalance:
- Clearing – Like a magnet can pick up little pieces of metal shavings, a healing crystal or stone can absorb and remove negative energy from our body.
- Balancing – Everything in our world is symmetrical, including our bodies. When our energy becomes misaligned and out of balance, crystals and healing stones can attract and repel energies to balance our energetic disharmony.
- Energizing – Crystals and healing stones can direct energy into our body, mind or spirit through inducing resonant frequencies. A crystal or healing stone can harness energy from the quantum field and send it into our energy field.
Wearing crystals and healing stones
Crystals and healing stones can help us balance our energy field throughout the day by absorbing, repelling and transmitting energy. Wearing jewelry made with them or carrying them in our pocket helps insure we “have a nice day!”
Placing crystals and healing stones on specific parts of the body
Applying the laying of stones- for example if you have a headache you might sit quietly with a quartz crystal on the spot of your pain.
Meditate with them
Sitting with crystals and healing stones during our meditation, we are often able to intuitively receive amazing, life-changing insights.
They are millions of years old, and hold a myriad of information about our history.
A quartz crystal can hold more data than twenty thousand iPhones.
Place a crystal grid
Laying out specific types of crystals and healing stones in a predetermined pattern can help us receive and transmute energy.
A crystal healer can teach us patterns to accomplish our healing goals. It may take time to learn but is well worth the effort.
Use healing wands
Crystals and healing stones may work better to clear negative energy fields by moving them around our body and auric field, which extends three feet from our physical body.
Place them in our car or home
We can also use crystals and healing stones for protection. By placing protective stones in our car we can block negative energy from accidents or break ins by placing that intention into them while we place them.
It’s the same for our home or to set the energy for a room. Crystals, like rose quartz can also draw in romantic energy in our bedroom or healing energy by placing them near our tub.
Sleep with them
Placing crystals and healing stones under our pillow or on our bedside table allows them to do their magic while we sleep.
Our subconscious minds take over when we’re sleeping, and it’s a great time to learn at an accelerated pace and to heal.
Allowing crystals and healing stones to work while we sleep can eliminate hurdles our rational minds might be presenting with fears and doubts.
They can also affect our dreams and how we feel when we wake up.
Cleansing and aligning crystals and healing stones
Since healing crystals absorb, attract and repel certain types of energy, it’s important to keep them clean.
They can absorb negative energy so we need to get rid of that before using them again.
Like using a sponge to soak up dirty water, we need to squeeze it out and clean it so the next thing we wash with it doesn’t get dirty.
We also need to do this with a crystal or healing stone we have acquired as we don’t know what energies it has absorbed.
Clearing our crystals and healing stones is simple. We can soak them in purified or salt water. We don’t soak selenite or amber though as they will dissolve.
Smudging, using the smoke from white sage, dried herbs or incense, can also cleanse them.
Deciding which type of crystal or healing stone to use
We can ask the crystal or healing stone how they want to be used, meditate with it, use a pendulum or simply go with our first instinct.
Consulting a crystal healing guide is one way to determine which crystals to use for which situations, but there really is no substitute for the mentorship of a seasoned crystal healer.
