Crystal healing proponents believe that crystals and gemstones have properties that facilitate healing. It is said that this ancient practice dates back to over at least 6,000 years to the time of the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia. The ancient Egyptians are also referenced as being among the first people to have adorned themselves with crystals — including lapis lazuli, turquoise and carnelian — to ward off sickness and negative energy.
So how does it work?
In crystal healing, stones are assigned with various properties, though many healers will have different ideas towards what each stones possesses and with which properties. For example Amethyst, is believed by some to be beneficial for the intestines; green aventurine helps the heart; and for mental clarity- yellow topaz is recommended. For the 7 Chakra points on the body the colors of red through to violet are associated.
1. Keep them Close***
As obvious as this sounds this is one of the most beneficial ways of the crystal charging you.Put it in your pocket, or have it hanging close to your chest or neck. To cleanse and energise the chakras place crystals or stones (as shown below) on chakra points for the following references.
*Crown Chakra - clear quartz, amethyst, gold, gold rutilated quartz, tigers eye
*Third Eye Chakra - sapphire, emerald, malachite, azurite, lepidolite
*Throat Chakra - aquamarine, topaz, sodalite, blue lace agate
*Heart Chakra - rose quartz, garnet, jade, peridot (olivine)
*Solar Plexus Chakra - citrine, carnelian, amber, calcite
*Sacral Chakra (just below the navel) - carnelian, moonstone, hematite
*Base Chakra - red jasper, garnet, opal, selenite, chrysoprase
Now if you really get into it you can have them on all these chakra points (as in Crystal Mediation) lay a bunch of crystals on your body and lie back and enjoy for half an hour or so. You’ll feel amazing afterwards.
2. Make SpiritWater***
You can easily do this overnight, or for just a few hours prior to you drinking your spirit water ready for use Spirit water is water that has had a crystal soaked in it. Preferably use polished tumble stones so you can be sure of no contamination from the crystals themselves.
3. The Chakra-Bed***
In the evening when you are ready for bed set yourself up with the 7 Chakra stones. Place them under your mattress (so you can lie down comfortably) Throughout the night, your body will recharge while you sleep, connecting with the vibration of the crystals, allowing you to wake up feeling incredible! This really is a great convenient and easy way to recharge the body.
4. Spread the Love***
The age old way of sharing love and being love. When you see others in need of love and attention be the person there to help. Why not be the transformation of someone else's suffering? It can be one of the best things (not only for them) but also for you. Do unto others as you would do unto you. Spread love, be loved and make love! What goes around come around.
