For spiritual, emotional and physical healing, precious and semi-precious stones have been used since recorded history and probably before. Crystal healing is the use of crystals to bring about healing and positive changes in the mind and body. It is an alternative technique for strengthening the body and resolving issues and patterns using various forms of natural crystals. The theory is that gemstones carry vibration rates. By placing these vibration rates within the aura – your aura’s vibration rates also change. Often the effects are indirect, but very potent. Other times, the effects are very direct and repeatable.
Just a handful of the many gemstones are used in alternative healing. Each of the stones contains its own qualities and when used properly, these gemstone properties can produce healing, health and vitality. So many gemstones have overlapping qualities that there could be a number of them that would benefit your health and well-being.
Using Stones Healing
Before use gemstones should be cleansed to remove the energies of others that have touched them. You should also purify them on occasion to keep their energies strong. You may place it in a container filled with non-iodized sea salt and let it purify for 12 hours. If you find your stone in the outdoors, then spend some time holding it for awhile before washing it under water to remove the earth.
The easiest way to do gemstone therapy is to wear high quality round beads around the neck. Metal surrounding gemstones will block their energy, so it’s important that your gemstone not be surrounded by metal as in the case of some jewelry pieces. If metal surrounds the gemstone, its affects are often greatly reduced and sometimes eliminated. Do not place your gemstones on a metal plate or container. Make sure the gemstones you purchase are natural gemstones and not altered with dyes.
