Crystal healing is an alternative healing technique in which crystals and other stones are used to cure ailments and protect against disease. Practitioners of this modality believe that crystals act as conduits for healing — allowing positive, healing energy to flow into the body as negative, disease-causing energy flows out.
Different crystals have different energies and properties. Each one can affect mental, physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of ourselves. By holding the right crystal at the right time, they can bring about a change in our attitude and well-being. You don’t even need to look up the meaning each time you do this. It is an intuitive practice. Over time you may acquire a variety of crystals. Take hold of the one you feel drawn to, and absorb the energy it emits.
The right crystal can affect the energy of an environment, and the energy it holds can influence you whether you hold it in your hand or use it in your home-space. Crystal healers use their knowledge of the stones and of the patient in the healing process. There are numerous methods of healing with crystals. Some techniques may include placing crystals on and around a person while they are lying down, or using a wand or point to focus love, energy and intent on the other person in a way that relates specifically to their ailment and individual needs.
