Crystal Healing and Your Health


Crystals have been long revered for both their beauty and crystal healing effects. In the Melbourne Art Gallery numerous rooms have been allocated to show off various crystals and explain their geological origin. In the Museum in Bathurst in NSW is a similar display. Over the years the art of crystal healing has survived much criticism from skeptics so it is somewhat comforting to see that the science of Geology holds them in such high esteem to devote many rooms to them in such museums.

There are many books available elaborating on the benefits of different crystals so it is not my purpose to talk about that here. What I want to explain is why the possibility exists that crystals healing can work and attempt to throw some light on why some people feel such a sense of wellbeing and healing after a crystal healing session.

By way of explanation let’s go back to the science lab in school. We learnt that everything is made up of atoms. Solids are made up of lots of tiny moving atoms and appear solid because the atoms are so dense (close together) that it looks solid. Less dense substances with atoms not so close together are liquid and those even less dense are gas. In fact everything around us, including you and me is made up of these atoms or even smaller particles that are oscillating (moving) but we do not perceive they move because our senses can’t pick that up. Crystals are also made up of these atoms and oscillate (move) at a certain rate. Studies have been done in UCLA over the past 50 years or more to investigate this and you can find these on the internet.

The way you move, think and feel etc is unique to you. There is no other person on this planet (that you know of so far) that is a duplicate of you. We become affected by the vibrations of other people and if you don’t believe this simply spend an hour listening to a friend on the phone that feels down, and by the time they are finished and you put down the phone, you feel down also. We are constantly picking up other people’s ‘vibes’ and allowing other people to interact with our energy. In the same way the crystals and everything else around us have a certain vibration which defines a rose quartz crystal from a topaz and so on.

Crystals are distinct in that they have a geometrical arrangement of the atoms that differs and they oscillate (vibrate) differently which makes them distinctive by name e.g. smokey quartz is different to amethyst which has an effect when they come into close contact with each of us. Our personal vibration starts to move differently because the crystal is near us just as we would become affected by other people around us. This is part of the studies I was referring to earlier and readily available on the internet. It is said that the crystals have a positive effect on us, as they interact with our vibrations, our energy centres and it changes the way our personal atoms oscillate. If you consult the books as to the qualities of each crystal there is much information as to how they can affect you and how each crystal can heal different emotions etc.

There is testimony from many people, enough for it to matter, that they feel different after they have experienced a crystal healing. Whilst some people do not believe, there must be some reason why people feel different. Combine that with the studies done and it becomes open to doubt as to whether it could ever be just a placebo effect.

During a crystal healing the healer places various crystals as deemed necessary on or around the body or energy field of the client. The client is usually lying down on the floor or a massage bed. Ideal conditions are when the room is dim; there is some nice smelling incense or candles and some soft music. The idea is that the client relaxes and the crystals do their work. The length of time it takes depends on the healing that is needed.

It is said that the crystals alter the way the energy centres of the body (chakras) are vibrating and they balance and undo energetic and emotional blockages in the energy field, and in turn, in the physical body. By unblocking these, new energy can enter and it will flow better enhancing the persons energy, health and life.

So crystals are a tool for bringing balance and healing to the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Whether it is for you or not can only be decided from your personal experience and it would be good if you could try it for yourself. However don’t expect that just one or two healings will work miracles. It has taken you months, sometimes years of neglect of certain areas of your life to come to this point with your baggage and illnesses and there is no magic wand to whisk it away. This is life, not television, unfortunately and healing takes time, no matter what modality.
