Crystal Healing, Is It Real?

Updated on March 13, 2019

What is crystal healing?

Crystal healing is a practice of alternative healing with the use of crystals and stones. Its said that the crystals in use have healing powers, believers say crystal healing can heal your body from negative energy and even go as far to heal illnesses!

How does it work?

So you go out and buy a few crystals or even find a few yourself. Your excited to get started in experience an alternative way of healing, but where do you start? Well first off you should know that there are any different types of crystals that are used for certain things. Rose quarts for example is said to be the crystal of love. It can be used by being set in a certain area to clear out bad energies, or holding it during meditation, or even carrying the crystal in your pocket. Commonly a crystal would be placed over the body part of the chakra it correlates with to have maximum healing in a healing session. However, the crystal must be "cleansed" after a while. After a few uses the crystal would be full of negative energies. In order to do this cleansing you could do one of many things. The most common way people cleanse their crystals is by leaving them out in the light of the full moon. This supposedly releases the energies and purifies the stone for further use. There are other common ways like letting natural water run over it or leaving out in sun light. But, does all this fuss over rocks really get people any where?

The Scientific study

In 2001 a study was performed using 80 participants, some that were given real crystals and some that were given fakes. The participants were asked various questions about how the crystals made them feel while holding it before continuing to meditation. After meditating for a while they were asked if they felt any affects from the crystals. People who had fake crystals and those who had fakes both had people report feeling warmth and well being. It was found that people who had said to believe in crystal healing were twice as likely to say that they felt effects from the crystals. In the end crystal healing was ruled as a placebo effect and only worked if you thought it would.

Never the less it is a widely known and used practice and continues to grow in popularity. whether your a believer or a septic the idea that a natural substance would be able to heal you mentally and physically is alluring in of itself. The question on whether its real of not is still unanswered, but the fascination people have with their rocks may never come to an end.
