Over thousands of years, shamen and medicine people around the world have worked with crystals. Records of their usage go way back over 5000 years in Chinese medicine text, Ayurvedic texts from India, and the Bible, where you can find over 200 references to crystals and their powers.
Crystals, what are they and how they work?
Stones/crystals are natural solids made from minerals that have formed on the surface of the earth. Their shapes, colors, and sizes vary, and they are believed to carry a million years old energy. There are many explanations for the healing effects of crystals. They heal by working through the energy system, not the physical body. By influencing the energy system, crystals can have healing effects within the physical body.
What is crystal healing?
Crystals channel energy. They can, for example, store and transmit the energy. Crystal healing is about change. Working with crystals can improve your physical and mental health, your emotional well-being, and spiritual growth. They will not do anything that your body wouldn't, but they can speed up the process which would happen anyway. For example, carnelian works well for common colds by easing the symptoms faster, and jade might ease period pains.
Crystals improve the state of well-being, and reduce or even remove symptoms of disease. They also help to speed up changes in life, and ease healthy lifestyle choices.
Sometimes crystals may be predictive in a way that they can help you with some future problem or issue. And whatever the purpose of the crystals you have chosen, it will be revealed to you, when the time is right.
One of my latest discoveries drew me like a magnet. Later, I checked what the healing power of that crystal is. It was Mangano Calcite:
- The crystal combines gentle love and joy. It also soothes.
- It activates the same properties in its user.
- It brings positivity, tolerance, and gentleness towards oneself, like a good friend.
- Mangano calcite is for forgiveness, and it releases fear and sorrow.
- It brings love.
There might also be crystals you aren't at all drawn to, crystals that you don’t like. These crystals might be very helpful too. The reason you don’t like them might be, that they are touching something very deep and uncomfortable inside you, it might be something that you have pushed away for a long time. When you decide to work with crystals you don’t like, they help to lift buried things or feelings to the surface. This can be quite rough, but afterwards, you’ll feel better, or even transformed.
