The power of healing crystals is so abundant, yet many many people still don’t understand their true power. Healing crystals form part of an age-old alternative therapy which works holistically to bring harmony to your body, mind, spirit, and soul. Healing with crystals maximise your feelings of contentment and well-being, and helps you become more a more person.
What is a crystal?
As I’m sure you know, a crystal is a type of mineral found under the surface of the earth. Crystals come in different colors, shapes, sizes, and compositions. Their shaoes depends on their natural characteristics, as well as the conditions under which the crystals are formed. Every crystal has a unique vibrational resonance, therfore, no two crystals are alike.
What are crystals?
Crystals are powerful, transformational tools, capable of even turning sound into light. Because they are made up of silicone and water, just like our bodies, we can easily feel a crystal’s vibration resonating deep within us. Crystals are said to have healing properties, and they help in clearing and releasing negative energy, thereby playing an important role in energy healing.
How it all began
It’s safe to say that our association with crystals dates back to the beginning of time! For as long as we have existed as a species, our forefathers have used talismans and amulets to guard against disease and ill will.
Many of these charms were carved from crystals. Ancient Sumerians even used crystals in the magic potions they brewed to ward off illness and purge evil spirits! Crystal therapy was also used in ancient Egypt, China, and India.
How Crystals Work
Our bodies have a rather complex electromagnetic system, which is sometimes refered to as a vibrational energy system. Crystals are perfect conductors of this electromagnetic system, and have been found to carry positive
vibrations that essentially activate specific energy centres within that system. Thereby having a positive effect on our general sense of well-being.
Crystals are usually placed on specific parts of the body, or are swept over the body using techniques such as crystal wand healing, or crystal pendulum, to create balance in the body. Different colored crystals facilitate healing by altering your state of mind, and creating tranquil emotions.
Crystals And Chakras
Chakras are often referred to as spinning wheels of energy. We have seven major chakras in our system, and each chakra is associated with a color. If crystals of the same color are placed on the corresponding chakra point, it cleanses and energizes the chakra.

Crystal therapy simply aims to restore the well-being and balance of a person by releasing impending blockages.
When people experience healing from crystals, they will experience a deep sense of calm and tranquillity. They report being able to let go of the negative to make way for the positive. They also report experiencing reduced mental stress and a general peace of mind.
How to choose crystals that are right for you
Choosing a crystal that’s right for you is just like choosing that someone special you want to spend the rest of your life with. While it may be helpful to know the properties of the crystal you are looking to own, it is not mandatory that you do.
What I would suggest is to open yourself up and be receptive. Close your eyes, open your mind, and eventually you will find yourself feeling drawn to a particular stone. Trust your intuition, as this is probably your subconscious identifying the problem areas in your life, and choosing a crystal to combat those issues.
Tune Into The Crystals Vibrations
Another technique for choosing a crystal is to sense its vibrations. Hold a crystal in your hand and see if you can feel it vibrate with you. Every crystal vibrates at its own frequency, and some people are sensitive enough to feel those vibrations. Some crystals may give off a pulse of energy, while others might tingle in your hand. You will instinctively know which one is right for you, even though you may not be able to describe its positive vibrations in words.
Using A Pendulum
Using a pendulum is a great way to seek answers from your subconscious mind. Hold a pendulum over a crystal and ask “is this the right crystal meant for me”? Look for a circular movement of the pendulum while holding it above a specific crystal. That motion will indicate the right one for you!
The power of healing crystals is an amazing world of study! I hope this has helped you to understand the infinite power of healing crystals , andfind one that’s just right for you!
