Healing Crystals and Gemstones

Updated on September 4, 2014

Crystals and Gemstones

Crystals and Gemstones - Why we get attracted towards them?

Gemstones are basically beautiful rocks. They look appealing and quite pretty. When I was a kid, I used to get quite fascinated with these amazing rocks and I loved to explore them, dig them out from beside the river side, and hold them in my hands. I had an assortment and varied collection of various colored stones of different sizes. That time, I used to collect them just for the sake of fun and fascination, but it was in later years only that I became aware of the healing properties of these crystals and gemstones.

It was after a detailed study and research that I came to know that these pretty crystals and gemstones actually come up with spiritual and healing properties, which can be tapped in distinct ways to attain benefits. A person can either carry crystals and gemstones with himself in his pocket, or wear it as a pendant, ring, decorative hair clips for various hairstyles or other forms of jewelry, which can add to the beauty as well, apart from getting healing vibrations from them. These crystals and gemstones, when placed at various parts of bodies can help in balancing the person's energies (chakras and auras).

Crystal therapy

Crystal Therapy is essentially a form of healing done with the help of crystals and gemstones by attaining their vibrational energies in an appropriate way. Every type of crystal or stone has its own unique traits and healing properties, which also depend on the shapes, sizes, colors and textures of various gemstones. Crystals and gemstones when kept soaked in a glass of water can be used to make crystal elixirs. Because of the healing properties of these crystals and gemstones, they can be used well for the purposes of meditation and divination.

There are various ways in choosing the right healing crystals and gemstones for you. One of the simplest ways is to intuitively choose the stone you feel more attracted towards, but it is better to follow expert's advice to go ahead in this process, to avoid any imbalance that may get caused by the wrong choice. Irrespective of that, you need to keep your minds free from any doubts in order to enable the crystal healing to take place for you.

How to choose the Right Crystals and Gemstones for a Particular Purpose?

People have various areas and spheres in their lives, which they feel, need some balancing or increase in energy and hence may be interested in choosing one from various crystals and gemstones with a certain purpose in mind. In addition to the crystal's size, shape or color, the choice also depends on the person's needs, demands and alignments towards various energies in his life. Following are certain important tips that can help you in choosing an appropriate healing stone for you:

- Vibrational alignment between your energy and crystal's energy: The most vital aspect of the whole selection process of crystals and gemstones is the connection and alignment of the energy of your demand or need and the vibrational energy of the crystal you are going to select. The frequencies are actually decided by the atom movement which keeps on changing, time to time. In our day to day lives, our vibrational frequencies keep on getting altered because of all outside consequences, our thoughts, actions etc. You are into higher vibrational frequencies whenever you feel happiness, joy, contentment, success and peace of mind. Similarly, anxieties, worries, anger, frustration and melancholy bring your frequencies down.

- An appropriate crystal can help you in raising your vibrational frequencies: Once a matching healing crystal is found, you are now in a process of including crystal's vibrational frequencies to your own. Once you properly enlist the correct matching crystal in your life, you immediately get aligned and inclined towards its energy, thereby making you feel good about the particular aspect of your life, which you wanted to improve.

Choosing the right crystal from a plethora of healing crystals and gemstones, for the right purpose can be extremely advantageous and helpful in helping you raise your energy for a task. But, here is a disclaimer - one must not just rely on the stone to do some kind of miracles in your life. The crystals and gemstones are just additional healing modes to help you raise your vibration. The ultimate action must be taken and controlled by you only.

Steps in choosing the perfect crystals and gemstones:

1) Appropriately write down your purpose or aspect of life you want to improve.

2) Seek the help of a professional, or do some research to know what types of crystals and gemstones can suit your demands.

3) Choose the crystals and gemstones that you feel most inclined towards, get them approved and adjusted (in size and shape) by a professional, and then wear them.

Powerful affirmations also work well with crystal healing. Whenever you are enlisting the areas you want to improve, try to make positive statements about the rectifications you want to happen, instead of using negations. e.g. if you want to get rid of migraine you must write -

"My head is healed and healthy.",

instead of statements like "I do not have migraine anymore".

You must not choose any crystal for the sake of choosing, because if the crystals and gemstones don't match your vibrational frequency, they may drain you off your energy thereby making you more and more frustrated about a situation. Crystal choice is really crucial and of extreme importance and must be executed with the help of experts and professionals only.

      Very informative article! I totally agree on how when choosing a gemstone it needs to "speak" to you. I remember when I bought my first gemstones. At first I was like nah i dont need them, but after wandering by them in the same store a few times I gave in to my inner voice. Since then I'm glad I bought those stones :)
