Crystals, A Healing Mineral With Many Uses

Updated on July 27, 2016

Crystals have been used for psychic grounding and healing for countless years, but modern science has shown the value of crystals can be utilized in everything from watches to telecommunication.

Crystal, the word comes from the Greek meaning “ice” or Krystallos due to the appearance of the mineral. Crystallization forms from pressure and fluid cooling rapidly in mineral rock deep within the Earth. Today, crystals are worth a lot and are used dramatically and increasingly in all sorts of a variety of ways. Crystals can absorb energy as well as store energy, thoughts, emotion, aura energy, and electronic impressions. Crystals are themselves charged with energy that resonates around them. Crystals emit an electrical pulse called “piezoelectricity”.

The New Age movement and crystal power.

Many believe that the human body responds to the piezoelectric-harmonic energy from crystals. Laying crystals upon the body on specific Chakras points to bring harmony back to the energy fields, in effect a cleansing process. Choosing the right crystal is important. Crystals vibrate to a certain frequency, come in many colors, shapes, and sizes. Different crystals have different energy properties. Quartz crystals, known as the Star Stone, used by North American Indians and other cultures around the world, have used the clear crystals in ceremonial rituals, spells, and for protection, healing, and psychism. Rose quartz crystals are pink and good for love, relationships, duality, and balance. Blue quartz crystals for tranquility. Smoky quartz crystals are a grounding stone and helps to overcome negative emotions. Green quartz helps prosperity and creativity.

Throughout history many have sought to understand the mineral kingdom and master it’s magical effects. Seeking gemstones, crystals, and metals for their aesthetic beauty and healing properties. Medicine men, spiritual seekers, shamans, and in certain religious practices have used the power of these crystals for cleansing, therapeutic, and clarity for directing-manipulating energy. Programming a crystal stone with positive healing energy is common. One should focus on intent, desire, and need. Dedicating the crystal to a specific purpose, such as protection or medicinal.

What is crystal therapy?

Crystal therapy is a form of vibrational medicine. Crystals alone can be used or when applied with other gemstones. Wearing a crystal, holding it, placing it upon the desired location on the body can use their healing vibration to absorb negative energy. Healing crystals are good for meditation, divination, and balancing both the Aura and Chakras of the body. This is called “laying on of stones” for clearing, curing, and alignment of the life force energy residing within the body.

What happens during a crystal therapy?

Crystal therapy is done in a peaceful environment, the receiver lies upon a message table, either on back or chest, fully clothed as the Healer holds the crystal over the receiver’s Chakras points (such as in Reiki therapy) or placing them upon the body itself. Treatment lasts up to an hour and release stress, pain, and gives deep relaxation. Crystal therapy is used to improve various types of physical and mental ailments. Crystals can stimulate and balance the life energy force that need to flow for good health. Crystal can calm anxieties and open doorways to self-discovery and spiritual growth.

What the mystics and psychics have to say about crystal power.

The late Edgar Cayce, extraordinary psychic and prophet, spoke a great deal about Atlantis and the Great Crystal. Weather one believes in the legend of the lost continent or not, Cayce claims Atlanteans used many crystals and actually charged their crystals for use in everyday life, (much like we use them today). Using them to transmute signals, telepathy, and storing great amounts of power to use as energy-cells. For thousands of years the ancient art of crystal gazing, known as “scrying” as been used by psychics to see visions of the past, present, and future. Interesting that besides crystal balls, modern uses of crystals today can store energy, transmit signals, and images over great distance to the general public. Our whole society benefits from crystals and their application.

The power of crystals is everywhere.

Crystals have unique electrical properties, natural oscillation, and can send human images and voices across the atmosphere like LCD screens. Everything in the universe oscillates and vibrates to a frequency. Quartz crystals are highly used in virtually every kind of electrical appliance. Even today, different countries around the world produce extremely flexible-reliable, frequency-control crystals that are used in computers, telecommunication, consumer, medical electronics, automotive, and watches.

Crystals are pure, transparent, geometric, have symmetry, and charged atoms that vibrate magnetically. Crystal power is real and choosing one should be done intuitively. Crystals have the ability to store, regulate energy, even emotions, and have far more power that we as human beings are just starting to comprehend.

      Woah. I didn't even realize that crystals had any use to be honest. Would you happen to know if there's any information leading to crystals being used as a potential power source for mechanical engines such as vehicles?

      They can act as conduits to help draw out excessive energy in different areas of the body. I have used them suspended as pendulums over areas where I have found blockages, and they mysteriously start to move in a circle, drawing out excess energy and healing the blocked area. They are amazing, and one of the many ways in which healing can be achieved. I also advocate qigong so that patients can get more fully in touch with their energy body and effect their own inner healing as well.
