I have personally used crystals for crystal healing therapy for many years. I've always been attracted to stones, even as a child. At a very young age I received a rock hunting satchel and pick, along with a rock tumbler, for my birthday from a family friend, after he noticed how mesmerized I was while sitting in his home staring at the glass partition he had covered with his polished stones.
I love being surrounded by nature. Have you ever noticed how much more peaceful you feel when you are out in nature? For me, having my home filled with crystals is a way of bringing a bit of nature to me while being indoors.
Crystals are not only used for crystal healing therapy; various crystals offer metaphysical properties beyond their healing properties. Crystals can be used to absorb negativity, eliminate toxins and offer protection. Many crystals and gemstones can be used to attract health, wealth and love.
All stones, whether raw, natural, tumbled or polished, even gemstones, gems and minerals are referred to as crystals within the realm of Crystal Therapy. A crystal is defined by its internal structure, not its outward appearance. Contrary to popular belief, the size, shape or whether a crystal is in its natural state or has been polished will not affect the healing properties of a crystal. The more you understand about crystals, the more effective they are.
Beyond Crystal Healing Therapy
Each healing crystal not only has its own unique healing properties, they also have their own metaphysical properties. As part of Feng Shui, an Ancient Chinese Art, crystals are often placed in a person's environment to help harmonize the inner self as well as outward activities.
Amber can be used to clean your space and to protect your energy. Carnelian can boost your energy and cleanse other crystals. Fluorite can enhance your intuition. Hematite can boost your confidence. Tiger Eye can bring abundance. Rose Quartz, Rhodonite and Rhodochrosite can attract love.
Quartz is a master healing stone and can be used for any condition. Many transparent crystals can have their effect heightened by being placed on a light box or catching the sun. Care should be taken, as clear Quartz can focus the sun’s rays and may start a fire. Some colored crystals like Amethyst and Citrine can fade in sunlight.
Smoky Quartz or Amethyst emit pure, clean energy and have the ability to absorb electromagnetic radiation also known as electromagnetic smog, such as that emitted by electronic devices. Citrine can not only attract wealth, but help you keep it. Many business owners have been known to keep a Citrine in their cash box or register.
Selenite is one of the newer stones. Selenite attracts angelic energy into your life and can link you to your soul’s purpose. Lapis Lazuli and Rose Quartz are cool and calming and will sedate energy, whereas Carnelian will stimulate it. Lapis Lazuli can quickly draw off a migraine headache.
Magnetite is a balancing stone and has the ability to sedate and stimulate. Magnetite can help alleviate pain. Pain can result from an excess of energy, an energy blockage or from debility. Magnetite is also helpful for balancing the emotions and alleviating depression. Magnetite can assist the body to self-heal and balance its biomagnetism. This is why we use Magnetite beads to make our handcrafted magnetic jewelry.
