Crystal Therapy is an ancient art, originating some believe in Egypt thousands of years ago. Others believe it is even older, beginning in the ancient civilization of Atlantis or possibly even Lemuria. Certainly, gems were important in Jesus’ day as they are referred to many times in the Bible. Wherever it began, these extraordinary gifts from our precious Earth have once again re-emerged to help us at the dawn of the new millennium, the dawn of our planet’s desire for healing.
Crystal therapy involves the use of crystals to bring about healing and positive changes in the mind and body. It is an alternative healing technique for strengthening the body and resolving issues and patterns using various forms of natural crystals.
Various crystals and minerals are placed on or around a fully clothed person to induce deep relaxation, release stress and pain, and promote energy balance within the physical and subtle bodies. The treatment takes around an hour and crystals may be used singly or in patterns. They are placed on sites of pain, on acupuncture points or meridians, or on subtle energy vortexes called chakras.
Crystals have the ability to hold and emit energy vibrations. When a crystal is put in a watch the battery sends a constant charge through the crystal. The crystal absorbs the charge, and then releases it at such a precise rate it is used to make the watch keep perfect time. Crystals affect our electro-magnetic energy fields or subtle bodies which surround and permeate the physical body. These include the etheric, emotional and mental bodies, which are collectively called the aura.
Crystals absorb, focus, direct and diffuse our energy fields to enable a sick or out of balance body to find its natural energetic rhythm once again. The appropriate crystals can be placed on the seven main chakras, which look like different colored spinning wheels of subtle energy, running up the centre of the torso. These link the subtle energy fields of our aura with our emotions, glands, organs, physical body parts and subtle and physical circulatory flows.
One can make use of them to initiate a specific effect on the energy balance of chakras, meridians, energy, organs and emotions. This is why wearing certain crystals such as yellow citrine may uplift you, rose quartz may help to ease heartache, and amethyst may calm a busy mind and help you to sleep.
There are many layouts to choose from, so the therapist either works intuitively or dowses with a pendulum for the right layout.
