How to Use Crystals for Healing
Crystals are closely connected to spiritual practice, and the intentions of the healer and the person receiving the healing are what really allow the crystal’s positive energy to enter the person’s energy field and commence the healing process. Crystal healing is not a quick heal remedy and takes effort and time to show the result; therefore, it is significant how the crystals are used for healing. References of healing stones are found in religious texts throughout the ages and have played an important role in the journey of mankind. In ancient Vedic culture, different crystals were prescribed to people looking for medicinal and spiritual benefits. Both, the healer and the receiver of the healing have to believe in the curative power of the crystal, only then the full therapeutic value of this healing process will be realised.
Wearing crystals as an accessory
A popular way of using crystals for healing is to wear them as an accessory to complement your wardrobe. Wearing a crystal necklace or pendant and embedding a healing crystal in jewellery is another way of keeping the crystals close to your body so that the positive energies can flow directly into the body’s energy field. Some women also keep the healing crystal in their upper undergarments where it stays in permanent contact with their bodies, without the fear of the crystal being dropped or misplaced. Keeping crystals in their shirt or trouser pockets for receiving the beneficial vibes is quite popular with men.
Using crystals in the house
Quite often, a cluster of crystals is placed on the centre table in the living room for ensuring a positive energy flow. Placing a bunch of selected crystals in all corners of the living room is highly useful for harnessing the positive energy flow in the house. In your meditation area, crystals can occupy a place of their own for barring the flow of negative energies and help you meditate with ease. In the bedroom, crystals can be placed around the bed and also kept in the four corners of the room. The points of the crystals should be kept facing in accordance with the energy clearing mechanism of a particular crystal. Along with space clearing, you can also use them for protection.
Crystal healing through water
You can also harness the positive energies of crystal healing by placing crystals in a jug of water, which will charge the water. However, care should be taken not to do this with toxic crystals. Healers have a way of co-ordinating the healing process with toxic crystals as well. All quartz crystals can safely be used for positively charging water.
Crystal healing through massage
Crystal Massage is another form of crystal healing, where a number of particular crystals devised for this healing process, are gently rubbed on a specific part of the body for producing positive energy. An expert healer knows exactly which crystal has to be rubbed at what pressure and for how long, for achieving the desired positive energy flow.
