As long as humans have been digging and finding crystals in the earth, these special stones have been used as a source of healing power. Ancient cultures from all over the world have used them to align, cleanse, and transform themselves energetically, spiritually, and physically. The metaphysical powers of crystals were known to the Egyptians, Mayans, and Sumerians who all regularly used them to adorn their bodies, make jewelry and build their sacred temples.
While the amazing properties of crystals were known to these ancient cultures, our modern world has almost completely forgotten about these natural healing techniques. Recently, however, there has been a new interest in the use of crystals for their energetic healing powers.
How Does Crystal Healing Work?
Ever since the discovery of the atom over a hundred years ago, science has confirmed that everything in the entire universe is made up of energy. Even seemingly solid objects, like a car or the hair on your head, are really completely made up vibrating energy at the most fundamental level. This means that a crystal and the cells of your body are made up of the same exact kind of energy.
Scientists already know how to harness the energy in crystals for all kinds of things. They have figured out how to use small quartz crystals to make more accurate watches, and no computer or smartphone could work without the crystals used in their electronic components. Whether we realize it or not, crystals are widely used for their incredible properties in our modern world.
In fact, many medicines are made by grinding up minerals that form inside of healing crystals. It’s incredible to think that even pharmaceutical companies have realized the benefits of crystals, but we have neglected to standardize their use in energetic healing.
It is easy to see how magnets use energy to attract or repel metal. It is in just this way that healing stones and crystals use energy to affect your body. When certain crystals are placed over different parts of your body, your energy transforms, vibrates, pulses, moves, and shifts in accordance with the properties and energetic signature of the crystal.
What Type of Healing Can You Expect From Crystals?
Healing crystals can be used to treat everything from migraines to anxiety. They can relieve pain and help heal you, body and soul. Spiritually, they can help to accelerate your meditation practices, align your 7 chakras, and even induce trance states under the right conditions. There’s no limit to the types or levels of healing you can get from the right crystal or stone when you use it the right way.
