Crystal healing, or as some call it, crystal energy healing, is essentially an alternative form of treatment which has been around for longer than you or I care to remember. As with all types of holistic treatments, you get countless people who vouch for the power of crystal healing, and you get countless people who dismiss it.
One of the reasons why so many people believe there’s no truth in it is because they automatically assume crystal healers believe they’re able to cure serious illnesses like cancer and etc. In reality however, this couldn’t be any further from the truth. No reputable crystal therapist will ever make such claims.
Crystal healing is more a type of complementary treatment. In other words, it’s used to compliment traditional medical treatment. If for example a person was being treated for cancer or some other serious type of illness, crystal energy healing could be used in a bid to enhance or boost the treatment being administered. In that sort of scenario, crystal therapy would focus on making the patient’s body more responsive and receptive, and it would likewise focus on improving the patient’s general frame of mind.
Even though crystals healing is often used in cases such as the one mentioned above, it’s more often used to treat and cure emotional problems such as depression, anxiety, and so on. It can also be used for treating things like low self esteem, lack of confidence, and even a range of sexual issues. So, how exactly does this intriguing type of treatment work?
The Power Of Crystals
While I’m not going to attempt to explain all the technicalities regarding crystals, I will point out the fact that man has long since been aware of the power of crystals, and the fact that crystals are able to harness and influence energy.
In traditional Indian medicine, seven chakras are believed to be present on the surface of the human body, running in a straight line down the center of the body, parallel to the spine. These seven chakras can be described as being energy centers, with each center being responsible for a certain region of the body.
- Crown Chakra
- 3rd Eye Chakra
- Throat Chakra
- Heart Chakra
- Solar Plexus Chakra
- Sacral Chakra
- Root/Base Chakra
It is believed that if/when one or more of these chakras are blocked, the resultant disruption to the natural flow of energy causes health related problems, whether physical or emotional. In order to restore inner harmony, any blockages must be opened, and this is essentially what crystal healing aims to achieve.
A crystal energy healing therapist will treat the affected chakras by placing, or sometimes rubbing, specific types of crystals oven the chakras in question. Interestingly enough, there’s no such thing as “one crystal-fits-all.” Therapists will have a variety of crystals, and will decide which crystals need to be used, based on the answers you supply to their questions.
Crystal healing experiences also vary from one individual to the next, although it’s not uncommon for people to say it feels as though a huge load has been lifted off their shoulders. Many also report a distinctive tingling sensation, which varies depending on the severity of the blockage or blockages regarding the various chakras. While no two people have the same experience and while some see better results than others, all agree that in order to really benefit from crystal healing, one has to maintain an open mind.
