The Natural Healing Powers of Crystals

June 19, 2017

(Selenite crystals from Southern Utah)

 

Sometimes I get strange looks from people when I tell them I'm a crystal healer.  I'm not sure why -- maybe they envision some kind of dark magic, voodoo, or hocus pocus -- but it really is none of those things.  Yes, we do throw around some terms like "crystal wand", "aura sensing", and "moonlight cleansing".  So yeah, I guess I can see why it may sound a little "woo woo" at first.  And there are certainly some people who use crystals in those ways, but trust me, working with crystals is not at all weird or scary.  It is a little bit magical though, at least to me.

 

I was first introduced to crystal healing when my son gave me some meditation crystals for my birthday a few years ago. As I started familiarizing myself with them, I found that i loved how I felt whenever i held or worked with them, and just looking at them helped me feel more calm and centered.  I began to add more and more crystals to my collection, and I soon discovered a new passion had taken hold. But maybe it wasn't exactly "new".

 

As a kid, I was always drawn to stones and crystals.  I remember going on yearly field trips to the museum, and my favorite part was visiting the dark room where all of the colorful, sparkling rocks gleamed under strategically placed spotlights.  Then there was the time I found a geode in the mountains, and took it home to my dad to add to the rock fireplace he was building in a small log cabin next to our house.    There was just something about those stones that made me feel happy, even though I didn't understand why.

 

Now as a certified crystal healer, I know why I was drawn to those crystals and rocks as a child.  The simple explanation is that everything is energy.  Everything in nature has a vibration or frequency, including us.  The frequency of stones is very stable, because, well, they're rocks.  So they don't get thrown out of whack the way we humans do.  So when we hold a crystal in our hand, or wear one around our neck, depending on the frequency of the stone, it will correspond to the energy frequency centers in our bodies, or chakras, and help us feel more balanced.  We can choose different crystals to correspond to the different energy centers in our bodies, and use them to help our bodies heal and balance themselves.  

 

Quartz crystals are used in watches to help them keep accurate time; rubies are used in laser lights to concentrate and amplify light into a powerful beam; alexandrite, sapphire, and garnet are also used in various types of laser applications.  Just as we can harness the properties of crystals for use in scientific ways, we can also access their properties for the more subtle healing energies they contain.

 

The easiest way to know what crystals do is to know the chakra they correspond to.  Each chakra is represented by one or two basic colors, and you simply choose a crystal color that matches the chakra.  The chakras and their corresponding colors are:

 

Base Chakra:  

Location:  Base of spine

Color:  Red or black

Associated concepts:  Survival, health, connection to earth, moving forward in life, abundance

 

Sacral Chakra:

Location:  Just below the navel

Color:  Orange

Associated concepts:  Connection to others, sexuality, creativity, energy, confidence

 

Solar Plexus Chakra:

Location:  Under the breastbone

Color:  Yellow

Associated concepts:  Personal power, emotions, physical center, bravery, strength

 

Heart Chakra:  

Location:  Center of chest

Color:  Green or pink

Associated concepts:  Love, safety, trust, relationships, adventure

 

Throat Chakra:

Location:  Center of neck

Color:  Blue

Associated concepts:  Communication, self-expression, responsibility, leadership, freedom

 

Brow Chakra or Third Eye:

Location:  Center of forehead, above the eyebrows

Color:  Indigo

Associated concepts:  Mind, thoughts, ideas, psychic abilities, dreams

 

Crown Chakra:

Location:  On top of head

Color:  Violet or white

Associated concepts:  Spirituality, connection to higher power, imagination, awareness, optimism

 

You may want to visit a crystal store and choose a stone for each chakra, or you can just go with whichever ones you feel drawn to.  There are really no strict rules to follow, just go with your intuition.  Crystals are simply a way for us to reconnect with Mother Earth, bringing our hearts, minds, and bodies back into alignment in a very gentle and natural way.
