Do Crystals Really work? -- Answering a question never answered

  1. newbizmau profile image92
    newbizmauposted 7 months ago

    I was reading and about to answer an old 5 year forum thread that really never got the answer he was seeking, which was do crystals really work and if so some real life example of why you think so.

    Many people tried to give some life experiences as to how crystals healed their grandmother or how it helped them in some way. I hope to explain a little further why crystals work based on the little science we do know of. I hope this helps anyone who has been skeptical to try something they don't fully understand.

    How do crystals work?

    Belief goes a long way when talking about things we can't see physically with our eyes. We have more control over our emotions, body, and general well being then we can accurately explain.

    The explanation that you are looking for can be found in watches. Crystals are in watches to help keep accurate time. The gears are regulated by a tiny crystal of quartz instead of a swinging pendulum or a moving balance wheel which do to heat and cold or slight gravity change can get off time.Inside a quartz clock or watch, the battery sends electricity to the quartz crystal through an electronic circuit. The quartz crystal oscillates (vibrates back and forth) at a precise frequency: exactly 32768 times each second. The circuit counts the number of vibrations and uses them to generate regular electric pulses, one per second.

    The reason all of that is important is that all crystals keep a precise frequency and when held close to our bodies we begin to mimic that frequency. Normally our frequency changes frequently. In simpler terms crystals help us focus. Depending on which crystal or combination of crystals we can achieve a certain vibration that we have learned helps us change our moods or heal in some way. There may be a scientist proving this somewhere right now and maybe we will have an exact way to measure or have a crystal recipe book for healing based on measuring frequency in our bodies. For now, though I hope this helps.

      "The reason all of that is important is that all crystals keep a precise frequency and when held close to our bodies we begin to mimic that frequency. Normally our frequency changes frequently."

      what frequency? who has done test that show our bodies"mimic" the frequency of a crystal? Why dont the crystal's frequencies change, instead of the human?

      Proof for your claims?

            By using eye balls and basic intelligence it is possible for any person to read and absorb information.
            As to why certain people refuse to read and study is another discussion.
            Read.

    Good morning,  thank you for your answer to the question.  This is the best answer I have read to date about how crystals work.  I use them with Reiki and meditation.  My plants and animals benefit, so I know it is not the placebo effect.  smile

    Thank you again.

    1. wilderness profile image98
      wildernessposted 7 months agoin reply to this

      Have you repeatedly started and stopped the use of crystals, substituting fake plastic ones, and measured the effect on plants and animals?  While maintaining the same environmental factors such as water, light (amount and wavelength), food, temperature, your own mood/activity and time of month and year? Being careful to record all measurements and comparing them to the periods with crystals?  Have you found that the differences are statistically significant?

      If not, how do you know it is the crystals affecting them?

      1. connieow profile image78
        connieowposted 7 months agoin reply to this

        Because I see results when using them.  When I do healing and clearing work, my mood is a meditative state.  My plants and animals do not know what humans know.

        1. wilderness profile image98
          wildernessposted 7 months agoin reply to this

          But are you assuming it is crystals when it is something else?  That's the purpose of the testing - to eliminate other possible causes.  Including your mood, which most certainly affects animals.

          1. connieow profile image78
            connieowposted 7 months agoin reply to this

            I know it works, that is all that matters to me.   And mood is definite that is why I said I get to a meditative calm place before I do any energy/healing work.  smile  Thank you for your interchange.

                You use crystals every day in technology.
                Does it affect your mood? Yes you like it. Keeps you active and allows communication.

                  wildernessposted 7 months agoin reply to this

                  No argument.  Do you think that is the use the OP spoke of?  I don't recall any mention of power input, electric circuitry or any other form of force/energy used in his description - just the presence of a crystal changes the human body.

                    Consciousness is energy. People's nerves run on electrical energy. Entanglement between atoms occurs etc. Sympathetic resonance doesn't just stop because we don't like it to be associated with anything spiritual or otherworldly.
                    The processes are the same.
                    Think laterally and it becomes very clear.
                    Read Tesla's ideas and he said the exact same thing about prayer being an actual resonance with the mind of God. Quite spiritual.
                    The question is "do crystals work"? The answer is a thundering yes.

      *shrug*  Claims are always so much better when accompanied with documented proof and peer reviewed and repeated testing, don't you think?

      1. newbizmau profile image92
        newbizmauposted 7 months agoin reply to this

        I prefer to be on the leading edge of thought and life in general. By the time there is a cure for what kills us in this country most of us will be dead, meanwhile eastern cultures have been practicing these techniques for millennia and statistics show they live longer. Science and statistics don't always agree with my personal opinion.

        1. wilderness profile image98
          wildernessposted 7 months agoin reply to this

          And we all have opinions.  Whether those opinions are based on tests, experiments and facts or faith based desires is up to each individual.  Should you wish to believe that eastern cultures, with a different diet, culture, environment and even genetics live longer because of a belief that a stone changes their "vibrations" into something that will heal them that is strictly up to you.  You can even call it "leading edge of thought" if it pleases you to do so, although the fact that it has been accepted for thousands of years would seem to deny it.

          But for me I ask for facts.  Observable, repeatable results showing claims are true.  I very seldom get them, but I do ask and do listen.

    Without actual crystals almost none of our modern tech could operate.
    It's all about the established scientific principle of sympathetic resonance.
    Tesla was way ahead in this field and now it is everywhere.
    So do crystals "work"? Yes they do multi billions of times a day.
    To exclude sympathetic resonance as linking both scientific and spiritual functions is wrong.
    Likewise the "newly discovered" principle of entanglement .

      I checked out your hub on sympathetic resonance, actually titled The Truth About Gravity.  It was very good. Very related to this topic. I suggest reading it to anyone interested in this topic.

        Thanks newbiz
        Many atheistic types don't realise that the most advanced scientific theories such as string theory are actually more akin to philosophies than actual maths proofs. This means that such philosophies are "ideas" the universe has come up with. Similar to our human laws and principles. Perhaps we can turn a human idea or philosophy into a math algorithm but it still arose in consciousness.
        Of course this is all speculative but so apparently is string theory, gravity and sympathetic resonance!

          I like speculative because that means I'm where I should be, the leading edge of thought, not following the masses to a grave I didn't know was coming.
