Long ago, many civilizations understood the power of crystals and stones and used them for protection, healing and rites of initiation. Ancient medical traditions included the wearing of amulets and charms. We are only now rediscovering many of the healing practices used by the ancients.
Historically, gem stones have been associated with royalty. The Bible refers to crystals over 200 times. Throughout the ages crystals and gemstones have been known by many to stimulate processes of transformation and healing.
Each crystalline form has its own unique personality and vibration. Crystals may be used to transform, conduct, amplify or transmit energy and light. Minerals and precious gems are active healing agents that radiate light and energy. This radiation has a natural influence on biological organisms. Healing stones allow one to access and utilize energies that permeate the entire universe.
A crystal contains absorbed light. So when a crystal is placed directly on the body, it can influence the “light communication” between cells. Particular reactions are triggered as these energies interact. They influence the body’s system according to what is required at the time. A stone will offer information in the form of radiant energy. If this energy is accepted, healing will take place.
Healing with crystals is an information therapy as are Homeopathy, Bach Flower Remedies and Aromatherapy. In each case it is not the chemical substance that is effective. Rather it is the information emitted by it which produces healing results.
A stone chosen to suit the needs and personality of an individual will be more successful than one chosen randomly. Any ordinary stone may produce a result. It depends upon an individual’s receptivity as well as what is required in that moment.
Crystal healing is a non-intrusive method for developing the ability to heal from within. Healing stones can be used to clear the aura, balance the chakras and to loosen old energy patterns. The effect of a healing stone, however, will be temporary unless the information gained is recognized and transformed into action.
It is the insight gained from a stone that releases old energy patterns. If we do not stop repeating our old habits these patterns will return. Crystals are aids for healing. We can use them to support us in changing the problems we ourselves have created.
