Happy Monday Lovelies!
Today I want to talk about sparkly healing crystals!! Yay!! I want to address a topic that comes up quite often.
What are Healing Crystals, and do they have magical powers?
Healing Crystals are simply gemstones that are found in nature, taken from the earth and used for their unique metaphysical and vibrational properties during crystal healing sessions, meditation, or as pieces to have within your environment, used as a holistic tool to improve the energy of your space.
They acquired the name ‘crystals’ from their unique, natural formations during creation in the ground. Crystals are natural energy transmuters and amplifiers, and their perfect geometric crystalline structure makes them amazing tools for helping to “tune” the vibrations of our chakras.
They also help us to calm and focus our mind, and help us to attract more of the energy that we want in our lives. Clear Quartz, for example, acts as a natural “storage device” and can be used to amplify our thought energy (our intentions), making them an amazing tool for working with the Universal Law of Attraction!
Now, this is all WAY advanced stuff, and I go over all of this in more detail in the crystal healing course I offer, but I hope this at least gives you an idea of what healing crystals are and how they are commonly used.
Raw chunks of crystal and stone are often placed in machines that sand and polish them into smooth pieces, which are often referred to as “tumbled stones”, and this is the type of healing crystal that seems to be most popular among practitioners and self-healers. Personally, I love my tumbled crystals!
Do crystals have magical healing powers? I get asked this a LOT and I’m to be very honest and say that the way that I use healing crystals and resonate with how they work is my own way, so I am bit bias here… I personally don’t believe in “magic”, at least in the conventional way that the term is most often used, but some people do. However, I do believe that belief (and intention) is the most powerful force in the Universe, so, with that in mind, if someone truly and deeply believes that crystals have magical healing powers, perhaps maybe for them, they do!
I am more of a practical user of crystals, but I am a HUGE believer in miracles, Universal Source and the power of intention, positive thought, energy and the strength and will of the human Spirit. I believe the real power of healing is within us, and we use healing crystals as a pure and brilliant vibratory tool that aids us in bringing more balance to the natural vibrations within our energy body. I also resonate with being able to use them as tools for energy transmutation (basically purifying energy – recycling negative vibe energy into positive vibe energy, similar to a water filtering system), and the ability to help us amplify our strong and positive intentions that we set forth to bring upon our own emotional and spiritual self-healing.
I view Conscious Beings as their own healers, and the crystal as a natural tool that mother nature and the Universe has provided us with to aid us in our journey to finding more balance, joy and health. I really do believe that the only way there is for you to get a correct answer to this question is for you to use crystals yourself, learn about them, and discover how they work for you, and how they fit within your own unique and beautiful belief system. I will share with you exactly how I use healing crystals and my personal theories of why they work in another post, but for now I will let YOU be the judge as to whether or not my theories and ideas are a good match for your own self-healing practice!
