Using crystals in healing and intuition

 ts

I use crystals in my healing and Intuitive work;  when I do readings, I meditate with my tigers eye.   Most of my crystals have been given to me or I have picked them up when I was in the UK. Crystals are a wonderful tool and energy source.  When choosing your crystals feel the energy resonating from them.  A few of the stones or crystals I use are rose quartz, Clear quartz crystals , peridot, and turquoise. Singing bowls can also be made from crystal and resonate with a very healing tone.

 

The power of the crystal can be found in its structure – growing and reaching up toward light from the deepest parts of earth. It is a conductor of energy – both as a receiver and a transmitter. It is important to keep your crystal clean in order to protect it from outside negative vibrations. Your personal crystals will attune themselves to your vibrations, as you will attune to the natural vibrations of the crystal. Choose crystals that seem to speak to you or that you feel attracted to for best results.

 

Clear quartz crystals have been used for centuries in healing. Egyptians used them in pyramids to attract the power contained in light. Their triangular shapes held mystical appeal. American Indians have long revered the crystal as a sacred symbol of light. Crystals have been used to cut a newborn’s cord, and are often buried with the dead in addition to use in many ceremonies and rituals. In the Tibetan culture, crystals are considered sacred objects that are empowered with the elements. Many cultures carry them in pouches for protection from negativity.

 

How do crystals work?

Crystals have a long tradition of being used for crystal healing. Each variety of crystal has a unique internal structure, which causes it to resonate at a certain frequency. It is this resonance that is said to give crystals their healing abilities, stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

Crystal therapy is a gentle non-invasive form of alternative healing that works holistically to harmonize the mind, body, emotions and spirit, helping to increase our feeling of well-being, neutralize negativity, lift depression and to help us to become integrated, whole beings.

 

 Crystals for Healing

Crystals can be placed on specific points of the body to bring relief or can be swept over the body using, for example, a crystal pendulum healing technique or a crystal wand healing technique. Carrying or wearing a crystal that resonates with a physical condition can also gently ameliorate the condition.

Specific colour crystals can be used for chakra healing. They can be placed on the body using the Seven Colour Chakra Layout.

 

Headaches

The crystal used to provide relief from a headache depends on the cause of the headache.

A tension headache can be relieved by placing amethystamber or turquoise on or around the head. Lapis lazuli can also be used and has been employed for centuries to help treat migraines. Amethyst can be placed in a healing layout on and around the head to help relieve symptoms.

Another common cause of headaches in an imbalance between head energy and the solar plexus chakra usually brought about by stress or unsuitable food. If you suspect stress to be the cause of your headache or if you have a headache with an upset stomach use a stone that helps to balance the solar plexus such as citrine or moonstone.

 

Lack of energy

Red, orange and yellow crystals can be used to promote an increase in energy. The most stimulating and dynamic crystals are those with bright strong colours such as such as deep red garnet, golden amber or golden-yellow topaz.

For an increase in practical motivation use deeper tones like tiger’s eye, dark citrine and jasper. Holding a clear quartz crystal, point upwards, in each hand and placing a citrine on the solar plexus can achieve a quick boost of energy to the whole system.

 

Healing the mind

Crystals are believed to promote peace and tranquility by dissolving blockages to emotional expression. The stones should be worn or kept about your person. They can also be placed in a healing layout.

Green is a healing colour and many green crystals can be used to help reduce mental and nervous stress

  •  Rose quartz and blue lace agate can both be used for cleansing and detoxifying the emotions.
  • Opal promotes emotional balance and stability
  • Amethyst works on hormone production, balancing emotional highs and lows and helping you to feel less ‘scattered’ and more in control. Amethyst can also relieve stress by reducing mental burdens and helping you to focus on realistic goals.
  • Amber can be used to neutralize a negative state of mind and to balance any underlying emotional and endocrine imbalance.
  • Green Jade  is prized for its ability to calm the nervous system and to focus the mind.
