What is crystal healing?
Crystal healing is a branch of traditional alternative therapy that also involves using gemstones to bring balance to an individual’s life and mind. It is believed that the right chosen crystals allow positive, healing energy to flow into the body while negative, disease-causing energy flows out.
Crystals and gems are naturally occurring rock formations valued for their unique shape, colour, and luminosity. Crystals colour depends on the transmission of light through them whereas gemstones come in various colours, such as, blue, green, and red.
How long has crystal healing been around?
Crystal healing is dating back at least 6,000 years to the time of the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia. Ancient civilisations have intuitively identified the power of crystals and incorporated them into daily life, integrating them into spiritual rituals, medicine, divination and promoting good fortune.
Crystals still have a significant role in everyday life, such as components for satellites, computers, cell phones, televisions, watches. They’re also used in the beauty industry and cultural ceremonies, like diamonds, for instance.
How does crystal healing work?
Crystal healing is based on the philosophy that every stone has its specific vibration based on its molecular blueprint. Healing crystals hold unique frequencies and particular energies that align with each of the seven chakras.
Crystals function similarly to electric devices by storing and transferring energy into an object. Crystals are used in technology regularly, also for storing data in a tiny disk called “Superman memory crystal”. Each of these discs, written in fused quartz, can reportedly store up to 360 terabytes to keep data intact for 13,8 billion years.
Only the finest quality, pure crystals, gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from crystal energy medicine.
