Using Crystals to Balance the Chakras

February 5, 2016

 A few years ago, one of my sons gave me some meditation crystals as a gift.  I loved the feeling and look of the crystals, as well as how I felt when I was working with them.  There was something so familiar about them to me, and I soon realized that I had been drawn to stones and crystals even as a child.  

 

I can remember searching for fancy rocks every chance I got, no matter where I was.  I once found a geode and took it home to my dad, who was a forest ranger and knew a lot about geology. He placed the geode at the top of a fireplace he was building in a log cabin next to our house.  That solidified in my mind the importance of these beautiful, colorful, sparkling gifts from Mother Nature. 

 

If I went on a class field trip for school, I wanted to spend all of my time gazing at the brightly colored stones under the lights in those darkened rooms of the museum.  If I was near a lake or river, instead of swimming I searched for smooth stones and interesting shells.  That gift of meditation stones from my son had awakened in me a love for crystals that I had long since forgotten.

 

Crystals have been used throughout history to aid us in healing our bodies, minds and souls.  Wise shamen and healers the world over have made the connection between the energy centers of the body, otherwise known as chakras, and certain crystals that correspond with them.  Crystals can help balance these energy centers when they become disrupted by electomagnetic pollution from electronic devices, emotional upset, entropy, and illness.  

 

Crystals have a very precise molecular structure, which is why they are often used to keep acurate time in watches, focus laser beams, and create high-tech medical equipment.  Because of this precise structure, they are far less susceptible to entropy (the tendency for energy to become disorganized).  The dominant oscillary rate (DOR) of crystals is easily maintained because of their perfect atomic structure.  While crystals have only one DOR, human beings emit many varying frequencies from different areas.  We can use the DOR of crystals to bring the various energy centers of our bodies back into a harmonic and healthy state.
