Crystals have been used, revered and enjoyed for many thousands of years, both for their aesthetic beauty and for the peace, relaxation and harmony they seem to invoke. Crystal healing is an ancient healing system providing healing by the precise placement of crystals on and around the body. Each crystal has its own unique frequency/vibration and it is its frequency that gives the crystal its healing ability. Crystal healing addresses the patient as a unique whole, paying as much attention to his or her spiritual and emotional well-being as to their physical health.
Crystal healing is a non-invasive, relaxing and natural treatment. Whether you believe in the healing properties of crystals or not, the therapy itself will offer you a chance to lie back, relax and get in touch with your body’s energies so you can leave feeling refreshed, de-stressed and balanced.
I have a very vivid memory of buying my first citrine ring during a visit to Paris in my early 20’s, all I was aware of at the time was how beautiful the stone was and thought I was drawn to it because of its aesthetic beauty, of course now I know better the real draw to the citrine ring were the healing properties of citrine which I needed at that time.
Many of us are drawn to gem quality jewellery and own many pieces but we think it’s for their aesthetic qualities, but it goes much deeper than the external beauty as I recognized when I first consciously connected with crystals. During my travels through Brazil in my thirties, I visited mineralogists whom expanded my conscious awareness of the healing properties that each crystal holds. On my return to the UK I enrolled onto a two-year accredited crystal healing diploma course, wanting to learn all I could about crystals. There are many books about crystals on the shelves, with each one giving you a glimpse of the authors experience with the crystal kingdom.
You can read one or all of them but they will never be a substitute for your own experiential journey into the crystal kingdom. Crystals are keys to the universe, the microcosm and macrocosm our physical emotional mental and spiritual body. Tumbled polished crystals connect us with the collective consciousness of that crystal and its properties whereas natural terminated crystals and crystal clusters have the same properties and also connect us to the devic and spirit realms.
Each natural crystal has a consciousness that wishes to work with us to impart knowledge and wisdom. Some crystals have been programmed with information from Atlantean and Lemurian times and projected to our time now and can only be unlocked or accessed by guardians with the right keys, as the ancients knew the information was so important it had to be stored in the only means able to survive eons of time.
I have found the crystal kingdom absolutely amazing and they really do hold the secrets of the universe. I feel very privileged to have completed the course because it gave me a solid foundation in many different healing techniques of laying crystals on the body and over the last 8 years I have been very privileged to become the guardian of over 1500 different types of crystals allowing me to have the tools required to provide the most perfect healings.
How does the treatment work?
Crystals emit tiny electrical impulses which are received & recognized by the body’s neurological and subtle energy systems. The energy of the crystals is used to clear boost or sedate the subtle energy of our own body bringing it back into harmony with its natural state allowing it to work normally. Conscious recognition of the energy exchange is not always apparent, as it can be quite subtle.
Crystals are placed on the body and surrounding area to create a profound sense of calmness and balance. Sensations such as tingling, temperature changes and twitching can sometimes be felt as the body gently realigns itself. During this state of equilibrium, the body has the perfect conditions to accelerate its natural healing abilities. Benefits include: body detox, vitality increase, better sleep, calming the mind, helping to relieve pain. In fact, any condition will benefit from crystal healing.
The ultimate goal of crystal healing is to return the whole body to a state of pure unconditional love allowing us to manifest our dreams, be creative, and connect with our intuition, to be happy and to live and experience life in its fullness. Any other state of being creates dis-ease, whereby the mind, body and spirit are not in harmony with the Divine loving energy of the universe.
