What is Crystal Healing?
Everything on Earth contains energy, which means that everything on Earth vibrates at a frequency unique to them. These vibrations are subject to change for a variety of reasons. Crystals use their individual properties, vibrations, and energy to affect the vibration of the human energy field through the body's energy centers (chakras) and aura (the energy field that surrounds the body). There is evidence exemplifying that physical diseases or ailments first appear in a person's energetic body, their aura. The use of crystals as healing aids through the use of a person's own waves and vibrations can bring about healing and change - first in the body's energy field and ultimately the physical body.
Crystal healing is a form of vibrational healing and medicine. Richard Gerber, MD explains in his book A Practical Guide to Vibrational Medicine (2001) that "Vibrational Medicine is a diagnostic and healing approach to illness using energy in various forms and frequencies. As a therapy, Vibrational Medicine is the application of different types of energy for healing, including approaches as traditional x-ray and radiation therapy for cancer, the use of electrical nerve stimulation for treating pain, and electromagnetic field stimulators for accelerating the healing of fractured bones. Even full spectrum light is used for treating season effective disorders or the 'winter blues.' However, Vibrational Medicine also covers the more subtle forms of treatment such as acupuncture, homeopathy, flower essences, therapuetic touch, and that sort of genre. The later involves using subtle life-force medicine, but they are energetic therapies nonetheless."
Crystals can increase the rate at which the body heals itself physically and emotionally, and aid in personal meditation and spiritual development. Every human has seven main chakras (root/base, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown) that not only relate to organ systems in the physical body, but also to the vast range of emotions we as humans feel and experience on a daily basis. Most ailments and diseases in the body manifest due to blockages in various chakras, or through a disruption of the natural flow of energy through the body.
