Fact Or Fiction?
Scientifically speaking, there is no current evidence that crystal healing can cure diseases, mostly due to the fact that disease has not been found to be the result of energy flow in the body. There have not been any scientific studies either to show that crystals or gems can be differentiated by chemical composition or color to treat certain conditions or ailments. Many people know that it doesn’t take full scientific research to have faith in something, however, and in recent years there has been a spike in its use and popularity. Healing crystals remain quite popular in health spas and New Age health clinics, and many crystals or stones will be used in conjunction with other practices, such as massage and Reiki. Visit a spiritual store of any variety and you will come across a myriad selection of different healing crystals and stones in all shapes and sizes, all for differing purposes within the scope of healing certain ailments.
How Healing Stones Work
Although some sites allege ancient practice of stones and crystals in healing, most of the modern philosophy of healing crystals is borrowed from Asian cultures. The Chinese concept of life-energy, also known as chi or qi, and the Buddhist or Hindu concept of the chakras, which are vortices of this life-energy, are alleged to connect the physical and supernatural elements of the body. During a treatment session, a crystal healer will place various stones or crystals on to your body in alignment with these chakras points. The chakra points are roughly in the regions above your head, on the forehead, on the throat, on the chest, on the stomach, on the gut, and on the genital area. The specific stones used and their subsequent positioning will be chosen based on your symptoms. Stones are assigned various properties, with healers having different ideas about which stones possess which properties. Amethyst is said to be beneficial for the intestines, green aventurine helps the heart, yellow topaz provides mental clarity and colors red through violet are often associated with seven chakras points on the body.
Other Benefits to Healing Crystals
Crystal healing also involves the use of stones and crystals worn on your body or tucked under pillows to ward off sickness, shed negativity and absorb positive energy. These stones and crystals will often be referred to as “amulets” or “talismans”, and also signify different meanings and significance depending on the specific stone or mindspace you are seeking. For example, pink or red colored stones often signify love, and restore harmony to all different kinds of relationships, even your relationship with yourself. Blue stones are often associated with wisdom, happiness, peace and intuition. No matter what you hope to accomplish within your healing crystal journey, there is bound to be a stone or crystal ready to assist you through your spiritual quest towards enlightenment and health.
