What are healing crystals and why do they work?
Healing crystals and stones have been used to help with mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual healing for centuries. Even if you are new to the idea of using crystals to help with healing, it’s important to know that your intentions matter when using crystals or stones for healing purposes. The right crystal or stone can work with your body, mind and spirit in order to help support you in reaching optimal health and well-being on all levels (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual). Let’s take a look at what are healing crystals and why do they work?
Crystals have been used in many cultures for millennia to attract positive energy, remove negative energy, soothe pain, cure health ailments, increase self-confidence, and attract love. But how exactly do these stones work their magic?
The Physical and Metaphysical Properties of Crystals:
Healing stones have been used since ancient times, as humans believed that they had magical and healing powers. Today, people still use these rocks to treat ailments such as anxiety, insomnia, muscle tension, inflammation, depression and stress. There are many reasons why these beautiful stones can help us heal both physically and spiritually. Let’s take a look at some of their metaphysical properties below!
Ways healing crystals work
The Power of Healing Crystals is based on a principle known as sympathetic resonance. Sympathetic resonance allows energy to transfer from one object to another because both resonate at similar frequencies. So, for example, when you’re wearing a healing crystal, it may help amplify or direct your body’s own energy toward healing—the same way that a tuning fork will vibrate at the same frequency as any other tuning fork that’s been made to match it.
Crystals vibrate at their own frequencies, which means that simply being around them can have a positive effect on your body. When you hold a crystal or wear it, it’s thought that you absorb some of its natural energy through your skin, while others say that simply being in its presence helps to clear negative energy from your space.
Crystals’ power comes from their molecular structure, which is a uniform pattern that allows energy to pass through without being interrupted. Crystals act as a conductor for different types of energy
The crystals you need depend on your intention
Crystals have many different metaphysical properties. For example, Black Tourmaline is said to absorb negative energy. If you have a stressful job or live in an area with a lot of stress, try putting a piece of Black Tourmaline on your desk at work or place one somewhere that’s highly trafficked (inside your vehicle or near where you sleep is also a good idea). Rose Quartz, on the other hand, is known for bringing positive energy and love into your life.
Clear Quartz is a universal stone that can be used to manifest nearly any intention. If you’re looking to heal yourself, then self-healing stones will help. In self-healing, intent is everything. You should select a crystal that matches your intention for its healing properties.
If you’re looking to manifest something specific, such as money or love, start with a quartz crystal. For general good health and vibrancy, tourmaline is a great place to start. If you’re looking for new beginnings, try kyanite or larimar. If you want to soothe an aching heart, rose quartz is a good choice. If you want to attract love, try amethyst or rose quartz. If you’re looking for spiritual guidance, clear quartz crystal may be able to guide your intentions. If money is what you seek, then amethyst can encourage prosperity or abundance energy into your life.
