The Power of Crystals
Last week we had our Healing with Crystals: The Basics class here at the Wellness Center in Haileybury. What we learned was how each stone feels different, even the same type of stone from a bucket. It seems crazy that it can even be possible.
There is energy in everything from trees and other plants, rocks, water, the air, and fire. They have varying levels of this universal energy. These energies can be used to affect our own natural energy which in turn influences our own health and well-being within our mind, body, heart, and soul.
- Place your hand on a tree or pick up a crystal and simply relax.
- Close your eyes and focus on what you are touching.
- You may notice a throbbing, tingling, or vibration when you spend a little time holding natural items in your hands.
- This is their energy, a universal energy, contained within the item.
Everything holds a vibration, including you. Have you ever walked into a room and can feel the tension within the room? That’s because we all hold a vibration, it can be light or it can be heavy.
- Start by quieting your mind and relaxing.
- Focus on your breath.
- Feel your hands begin to tingle, throb, or vibrate.
If you are struggling with being able to feel your own energy, then let’s practice creating a ball of energy.
Rub your hands together quickly, you have done this in science class while in school.
Then pulse your pulses together, without touching each other, and feel the resistance between the two hands.
This too is energy.
Energy levels vary in all things. Some crystals and minerals contain strong levels of energy that can easily be felt with little effort while others contain only small amounts. And crystals, along with all other natural things, have properties that can heal our mind, body, heart, and soul. Although herbs are obvious because we can ingest them, the healing properties in crystals and minerals are a little more subtle.
Unless you have a photogenic memory, you will not be able to know and remember each type of stone and its attributes. You will come to know a few and connect them to specific areas of the body and mind. And what’s interesting is that when the energy of a stone is joined with our own energies they hold a different vibration than when someone else holds that particular stone. It’s really fascinating to experience.
Many ailments are caused by erratic energy flow through the body. It is important to restore balance back to our body so that we can often heal many minor and some major issues. Many long-term illnesses are a result of a combination of symptoms that relates to many areas of the body. A disruption in the energies from other areas in the body can leave us feeling mentally or physically ill. The vibrations of pure universal energy that are contained within crystals and minerals can influence our own energies.
Energy healing works using the energy frequencies of the crystals and minerals. The body receives these vibrations and utilizes them by allowing the external energy to infiltrate and feed to create that healing within our body. When the crystal or mineral is formed impacts the stone’s ability to hold onto its energy and store it by trapping it within the layers.
It takes no special talents or years of dedication to learn how to use crystals and minerals to benefit your well-being. It is useful to learn more about the healing properties of the different stones, but it’s also not necessary, as you can simply move towards what you are attracted to at that moment, by feeling or simply intuition. However, the more you know and understand, the more effective your own treatments will be. A stone can have an impact just by being close to you without you even realizing it.
I invite you to try it with any kind of stone, or now that we are moving into Spring do this in nature with a tree or a flower.
